Come winter and we all dread the inevitable – sniffles, coughs and cold. Well, here are a few things we recommend, to ensure you step out into the biting cold without a worry.
We all need a little help to stay healthy especially during winter. Start with adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet, the Vitamin C helps improve the antibody response, which in turn protects the body against respiratory ailments. You can also try blending the fruits and vegetables you like to make delicious smoothies and juices, or hot soups.
With the winters in full swing, we all want to look our best when we step out. We are happy to lend a helping hand to make sure you look your best this season.
If you feel the need to speed up the glam process a tad bit, you could try winter specific facials which hydrate the skin, do away dry hair and split ends by indulging in hair spa, to make sure the spotlight shines on you this winter. After all, a little pampering goes a long way!
We all have trouble leaving our warm toasty blankets and getting out for a run but it does wonders for your overall health. Sunlight helps the body produce more Vitamin D, which in turn helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and builds your immunity.
You could also add foods like salmon, sardines and egg yolk to your diet or opt of Vitamin D fortified foods like fortified milk, cereal, yoghurt and orange juice.
The common mistake people make during winter is to guzzle hot coffees and teas when they feel cold and not drink enough of water, this has a diuretic effect on the body, and leaves you dehydrated, so make sure you drink them in moderation.
Drink around 8-10 glasses a day, this helps with digestion and detoxifies the body. You could also try a rehydrating facial which helps lock in the moisture and ensures you have clearer and brighter skin.
The benefits of a good night’s sleep are often underrated, the lack of sleep has a negative impact on your immune system, leaving you more prone to catching infections.
Here are a few tips to make sure you sleep well. For starters, create a relaxing bedtime routine -have a warm relaxing bath, listen to soft music, avoid using electronic gadgets before your go to bed.
You could also dim the lights an hour before you plan to sleep, as this regulates the melatonin in the brain and cues your body to go to sleep. Still having trouble sleeping? try meditating, this reduces the heart rate and to help you drift off to sleep more easily.
