Weekend Tips and Tricks

Winter has officially moved in here in the Pacific Northwest, so I thought I would share some of my favorite winter time tips and tricks this week.

Tip #1: All those long hot showers and baths feel great right now, but they can seriously leave your skin dried out. Try adding a bath oil (or just straight almond oil like I do) to your bath water to help replenish your skin a bit. And make sure you put lotion on as soon as you get out of the water and lightly towel off.

Tip #2: The weather can make your nails especially brittle this time of year, so make sure you are using a good oil on them at least twice a week. A light buffing once a week will help with blood circulation as well.

Tip #3: Dry hands and feet? Slather on a THICK lotion or some Vaseline and put on some socks and gloves before you go to bed. You'll wake up with soft and well hydrated appendages.

Tip #4: Lip balm, lip balm, lip balm. I cannot say this enough, but apply lip balm often during the winter. Trust me, you'll thank me later when you are the only one in the office without chapped, cracked lips. And a little balm will do wonders for those wind chaffed cheeks.

Tip #5: For those planning on hitting the slopes this winter, don't forget your sunscreen. The sun reflecting off the white snow can leave you severely burned at the end of the day. Add in wind chaffed cheeks and that's a whole lot of ouchie face.
