Let’s face it, when winter rolls around, our bodies can start to do some weird things. The dry air can quite literally dry out our skin until it cracks. The brisk air can feel like a knife in your throat when you’re just breathing. WHY, WINTER?! I’m just like you when it comes to experiencing all these glorious imperfections that we are faced with, but I have some tips on how to help!
IT’S TEATIME | BOS Organic Rooibos Tea Bags with Collectible Tin
It seems the cooler it gets, the more I crave tea at all times of the day. There’s nothing like the feeling of sipping a fresh cup of hot tea, warming up your whole body and soothing your throat. I’ve been loving BOS Organic Rooibos Herbal Tea—it is packed with antioxidants, essential minerals, and electrolytes all while being naturally caffeine-free so I can drink it at any time without disturbance to my sleep. You can use code BABBLE20 for a discount (valid until December 1, 2020).
ALL-NATURAL BEAUTY | Witch Hazel Soothe with Rose Alcohol Free Toner
The skincare enthusiast I am has another step in her skincare routine! After cleansing my face, I pat it dry with a clean towel and massage Humphreys Witch Hazel Soothe with Rose Alcohol-Free Toner on a cotton round gently all around my face (and even my neck sometimes). I tend to use it each night after my shower before bed. It’s made of certified organic witch hazel, rosewater, and hyaluronic acid, and if that doesn’t mean much to you, let me clarify the benefits – It’s hydrating. It softens the skin. It’s gentle, so it won’t dry out your face. Personally, it gives my face an even more clean feeling after my cleanse. Whose skin doesn’t need some extra love right now?
CALLING ALL COLD SORES | Herpecin L
The changing of weather from fall to winter usually results in a few changes in my body. I tend to get a cold from the new temperatures outside and to top it off, I often get a nice little cold sore as a result. Cold sores are quite painful and unfortunately, quite common. Herpecin L can help with that! Not only is it formulated to help treat, protect and relieve cold sores, but it also promotes healing and hydration for your lips as well. I’m SO excited to not have cracked lips all winter. Though I’ve only used it to protect my lips from dryness and cracking so far this year, I know that when I inevitably get my yearly, painful cold sore, I will be fully prepared.
REPAIR & REPLENISH | Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair & Multi-Purpose Nail Repair
Two more things that need some extra love in the winter months – my feet and nails. So, my feet are chronically hard and dry (I blame it on all my workouts and constant walks) and they have been most of my life. Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair is an exfoliating moisturizer that not only hydrates the feet, but also exfoliates the dead skin away in literally 1 day. I put it on before bed with some fuzzy socks and wake up to fresh feet!
Another thing I’ve chronically struggled with is my nail strength – I am VERY tough on my nails and was cursed with the terrible habit of chewing on/picking at mine as a teenager. Although I’ve *mostly* grown out of that, my nails are still not the epitome of health. Kerasal Multi-Purpose Nail Repair has strengthened my nails immensely and has helped smooth them out so they’re not flakely and uneven. I feel like I finally have my life together as a 25-year-old. Kerasal can be found at Target!
