Transitioning from summer to winter can be tough on our skin and hair, especially for those with melanated skin. This is why we promote not only natural ingredients to put in our hair and on our skin, but we believe that to have healthy skin and hair, we need to take a holistic approach.
It's time to re-examine what needs to change in our routines as the weather gets colder. So here are our top 4 ways to maintain incredible skin and healthy hair during the colder seasons.
- Exercise Daily- going for a walk, run, yoga, dancing or any other exercise is great for your cardiovascular system, skin and overall health and wellness. If you live in a place where the leaves change every year, enjoy as many walks as you can before it gets too cold.
- Eat fruits and green vegetables- Fun fact, did you know that Kale is rich in an antioxidant called lutein which helps to protect the skin against ageing and damaging UV light from the sun? Another great benefit of eating Kale is that It's also high in vitamin K, which helps to strengthen the capillaries. These tiny blood vessels deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin.
- Drink and eat lots of water- We don't have to tell you this twice ;) However, when we think about consuming water, we usually think about just drinking it. Remember that you can mix it up by eating foods with a lot of water content, such as watermelon, cucumbers, strawberries, tomatoes etc. They count!
- Consistent skin care routine: Keeping a consistent skincare routine will ensure that your skin will stay healthy all winter long despite the climate. The fruit, vegetables, water and exercise in combination with a consistent routine will deliver you glowing, even skin without having to buy 10 different products.
Not only will these 4 practices help you to maintain healthy skin and hair, but you will also notice that they will have a positive effect on all aspects of your life, including your mood and energy. With the light being scarce in colder months, these routines are crucial to keeping us grounded and balanced.
