There are lots of great things about winter in Canada—crisp fresh air and gentle falling snow for a start. Unfortunately, the colder weather, dryer air and unforgiving winds can also do a number on your skin, hair and nails.
Central heating has a drying effect on your body indoors, and outdoors the cold air and winter winds strip your skin, hair and nails of precious moisture. The result can be brittle nails, dry and static-y hair, chapped lips and red, flaky, cracked skin. This damage is often compounded by holiday stresses, environmental pollutants and the various chemicals used in your daily routine—the toll of which effects your general health and contributes to the aging processes in your body.
There are some things you can do to minimize the damage and discomfort. Wearing sunscreen and moisturizing skin regularly can help prevent sun damage while soothing rough and itchy patches. Using a good, nourishing hair conditioner can help replenish some of your scalp’s natural oils. Swapping long, hot soaks in the tub for warm baths or quick showers is another way to reduce moisture loss. You can also do your body a favour in the kitchen—fish, nuts, flax, olive oil, and avocado all offer healthy, monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids that are hair, skin and nail-friendly.
While lip balm and an extra helping of guacamole are both good choices, adding a skin, hair and nails supplement to your routine supports a multi-faceted approach to promoting health and beauty from within.
