Beating the Winter Blues

Beating the Winter Blues


Don’t let festive over indulgence and the harsh winter weather conditions take their toll on both your skin and hair.

It’s that time of the year again. Some find the motivation to better themselves while the remainder of us make fake promises to stop eating out so much and to keep to a strict skincare routine. It’s not as easy as it sounds!
Instead of aiming sky high, be realistic and set goals which are actually achievable – and do something that you enjoy! Scrap the punishing 5am early gym routine and opt for an activity you love instead, like a relaxing hour of yoga.
After week’s of party fun and over indulgence, it’s time to get your body back into shape both inside and out. As the temperature continues to plummet, take a moment to think about rehydrating and winter-proofing your hair.

Turn down the heat
At this time of year your hair will face extremes of weather changes, as going from the cold outdoors to centrally-heated rooms means the moisture content in the air changes, causing the protein bonds in your hair to expand and contract, leading to dry, brittle and frizzy hair.
Get ready to wave goodbye to your straighteners, curlers and blow dryer. Regular heat and styling leads to split ends, dry and damaged hair. But if you can’t live without your hair appliances, make sure you use a heat protector spray.
Plus how often do you really give your hair a good trim? Regular trims are important all year round, but even more so now, especially if you’ve been styling your hair more over the festive season.
And it’s not just about the products you put on your hair – eating healthily and drinking the recommended eight glasses of water a day will help keep your hair in good condition.
