Winter Wellness and Naturals Self Care Routine Tips
Self-Care tips for Winter
The winter months can be harsh on your wellbeing. The darker evenings and colder temperatures can affect your mood, skin, and immunity. But winter doesn’t have to be a miserable time of year. Here are our top tips for looking after yourself and making winter an indulgent, fun time of year.
During winter conditions, more water is lost due to evaporation – this can occur when we come in from cold weather to a centrally heated house, or through exposure to drying winds. As the skin becomes drier it also becomes more prone to problems such as rashes and lesions. Lotions and hand cream will provide relief. Rough areas like elbows and knees can hugely benefit from a little moisturising hand lotion or cream. A perfect way to make your skin free from rough and dry spots. Regularly applying a cream will help soften hard skin and make it easier to reduce dry skin.
Our Hand and body lotion from both our I LOVE® Wellness and Naturals range is perfect for this issue, leaving your hands and body feeling nourish. Our Naturals collection hand cream works as a physical barrier on the skin by locking and sealing in moisture.
Give your skin some TLC
When temperatures plummet, so too does humidity, stripping away with it up to 25% of our skin’s moisture. This can cause cracks in your skin, leading to increased dryness and sensitivity in cold weather. Therefore, it is important to ensure that. Your skin is well looked after, as when dry skin shrivels plump skin cells, which can lead to premature fine lines and wrinkles. Moisturizing your face help will help to protect the skin’s barrier from irritation.
With a monthly facial, you can maintain your skin and prevent premature aging, as the TLC for your skin promotes collagen development and boosts cell regeneration which takes about 3 to 4 weeks in healthy skin.
Our Naturals hand and body lotion is perfect to keep your face feeling hydrated and as a base for your everyday facial moisturiser as it sticks well to moisturising products designed for your face. The I LOVE® Naturals collection is formulated with skin-sooting plant extracts and superstar natural ingredients to nourish and indulge your skin.
Turn your bath into pamper time
In the winter, a hot bubble bath will keep you warm and healthy all winter long infused with bath salts to help soothe you. Bath salts are not only an effective way of soothing aching muscles, but to help us sleep, too.

Practising good self-care helps you keep your mind and body healthy, which in turn helps you better manage stress and life’s inevitable ups and downs.
