Winterizing for The Winter Weather:

  1. Being in winter season, it is very important to pay more attention to your health as this is when the human body becomes very vulnerable to a whole lot of health conditions. Some of the health conditions prevalent during winter season are colds, sore throat, asthma, norovirus, painful joints, Flu and several skin related conditions. The skin is usually the worst hit during winter because it is usually the most exposed.

    This is why the skin requires more attention than other parts of the body during winter. That is why this article focuses more on skin care. But before then, below are a few tips on how to cope with winter season.

    Regular Exercises

    To shake up the cold, you need to increase the rate at which you engage in rigorous physical exercises. You should focus on the exercises that will make the body generate heat.

    Eat Right

    During winter season, you need to take foods that are rich in healthy fat and vitamins A,B and C. This is because vitamin A makes your skin strong and fortified and it also facilitates the development of new layers. Vitamin B facilitates the body metabolism and vitamin C quickens the replenishment of collagen in the skin. Walnuts and blueberries are believed to be very rich in healthy fats.

    Use Suitable Skin Lotion and Bath Soap

    Dr. Oz, in an article on winterization, advised that harsh bath soap should be avoided and good moisturizing lotions should be used. Based on Dr.Oz’s advice, you need suitable bath soap and lotion. A highly recommended pair of bath soap and moisturizing lotion is Goat milk moisturizing lotion and bath soap. Below are some of their attractive features.

    •Goat milk soap moisturizes the skin

    •It cures the skin of eczema and allergies

    •The soap lather is suitable for shaving

    •It is very soft on the skin and that makes it suitable for sensitive skin

    •The PH level of both soap and lotion is very close to the natural PH level of the skin

    •Both soap and lotion are highly biodegradable and they are free of phosphate

    •Both of them are manufactured in United States, which means that they would have been subjected to strict quality control compliance.
