The holiday season has passed and the New Year is upon us. Now that the chaos of the holiday festivities is gone, I finally have a chance to focus on myself and take much needed time to nourish ME.
The winter months definitely take its toll, especially on my hair and skin. It can be a constant battle to ensure that my skin and hair stay moisturized and supple, despite the dry, cold air rearing its head on a daily basis. I have a moisturizing ritual that I rely on to encourage my skin to bounce back from the dryness and bask in its own natural glow, thanks to some key practices that I swear by.
Before I go to bed at night, it’s important that I cleanse my face thoroughly and follow up with a creamy nighttime emulsion so that my skin has a chance to rejuvenate and moisturize throughout the night. This is also when I apply my eye cream. About once a week or once every two weeks, I use a moisturizing facial mask that really helps to boost hydration and soften my skin.
I take time to moisturize my body with a Shea butter cream and I put some extra focus on more dry areas such as my elbows and feet especially. I slather cream on my feet and wear thick socks to bed to help trap in the moisture. It’s amazing what a difference it makes come morning.
My lips will constantly peel and dry out if I don’t stay on top of them. I rely on a simple lip moisturizer to keep them hydrated. One of the best times to apply lip moisturizer is right before bed. This gives the moisturizer a chance to absorb and work its magic, whereas during the day, it dries out easier and with your lips moving constantly, it doesn’t have a chance to absorb.
It’s not just my skin that takes a toll and needs some extra nourishment. My hair absolutely stresses from the winter months. I have a hard time not only keeping my scalp from drying out, but my hair too. The strands tend to get dull and dry, leading to split ends and frustration.
Garnier Whole Blends is my go-to hair care product line right now because it gives my hair the nourishment it needs, resulting in a soft, healthy shine from roots to tips. My hair loves it! The NEW Moroccan Argan & Camellia Oils is my favourite blend so far and I love knowing that it’s paraben-free with natural extracts. I love the lather it produces when I use the shampoo and the balm conditioner really helps to seal in that moisture that my hair craves. I enjoy using the Moroccan Argan & Camellia Marvelous Oil for some extra shine and nourishment throughout the day on dry or damp hair. The scent of the Moroccan Argan & Camellia Oils blend is beautiful and subtle, while leaving my hair soft and silky, even after the first use.
My daughter likes to brush my hair and she mentioned how “pretty” my hair looked and smelled. It made me smile! Thankfully, Garnier Whole Blends is family-friendly with gentle sulfates and is great for anyone in our household. Each blend focuses on a unique hair action and right now I’m benefiting from the “Intense Nourishment For Lustrous Shine” factor from the Moroccan Argan & Camellia Oils blend so far.
I’m also looking forward to trying the NEW Legendary Olive Blend. It sounds just as luxurious! It’s silicone-free and nourishes, restores and strengthens your hair.
Lastly, a must when nourishing your body is making sure to take a multivitamin and drinking lots of water throughout the day. Your body (from head to toe) will thank you for it! I also religiously take an Omega 3, 6 & 9 oil that I spoon into a small amount of orange juice each morning. It might not taste that good, but it works amazing and I have been using it for years to nourish my body from the inside/out.
It’s simple things that help keep my body nourished not only during winter months, but also throughout the whole year. These are just a few ways that I take care of myself and pamper my body. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant or expensive because consistency is key and the products I use are always affordable and reliable.
