My care and feelgood-moments to make winter more bearable
My sweeties, winter is here! I mean, that’s not an excited “wheeee, winter!”, I was actually hoping winter would take a break this year altogether. But well, here it is with all its snow and icy streets and that mean, cold wind from the east.
And along with this sudden start of winter that nobody asked for, come other unpleasant side-effects like dry and itching winter skin and this inner cold that never truly goes away, brrr!
But even against those horrible winter side-effects, the beauty-industry invented some lovely little helpers. Products to make the itching and the dry skin better and also products that heal our frozen souls. And thus, I have collected my January beauty-favorites that are all about making this cold cold winter a little nicer for all of us. Enjoy:
1. Hand lotion is an absolute must for me! I just can’t live through any winter without it as my skin turns very dry, itchy and flaky during winter. It’s a mess. So, to prevent all that in the first place, I recommend the popular Neutrogena hand cream. With its Norwegan formula, it is the expert for dry hands in winter. And thanks to the Oslo illustrator duo Darling Clementine, they even come in a cute special edition now. I have to say, Neutrogena hand creme* is a true winter must-have!
2. Thanks to dry air and cold weather, I also tend to suffer from rashes similar to Neurodermitis in winter. But against those red spots, I also have a special little helper: the Biotherm: Life Plankton Essence. It’s my savior when I get one of those rashes as it relaxes my skin and offers perfect nutrition.
3. With all that sun missing, freezing temperatures and mean wind, going out your door isn’t really that exciting, right? But staying inside is also bad as it makes you feel super tired. Our bodies need the movement and the light, so even when it’s short, try to take a walk every day. When you come back home, it will be even nicer – especially, when you spray around a little bit of my favourite Happy Mist by Rituals. It smells like summer and really lifts my mood.
4. And to give our home an even more homely feeling, we love aromatic candles sooo much! They really always work and when they smell as wonderful as those by Jo Malone London, winter is really a lot more bearable… hhhhhmm…
