The best way to encourage yourself to stay active is by doing something that you enjoy and suits your lifestyle. Why spend hours on the treadmill if you dread it?

Include Vitamin C in your diet
Vitamin C has positive effects on skin health and your immune system. To naturally increase your absorption, you could try including foods rich in Vitamin C into your diet such as Guava, Kiwifruit, Oranges, Kale and Broccoli. However, there is no harm in taking a Vitamin C supplement to do the trick.
Take Care with your Skincare
In winter you may notice your skin requires some extra tender loving care.
- Moisture in the air If you have not already, invest in a humidifier! You will not regret it. Humidifiers keep moisture in the air which will help prevent dry skin and lips in the winter.
- Hydrate your skin You may need to update your skincare regime in order to suit the colder months. A gentle face wash and a thick moisturizer applied twice a day should keep your skin happy.
- Lip balm is essential There is nothing worse than having dry lips and during the colder months it seems impossible to avoid. Try a lip balm free from petroleum as it tends to reverse the effects of a good lip balm. However, anything with Vitamin E or lanolin is great!
Add Light to your Life
Try and allow as much natural light into your home and workspace this winter.
Natural lighting can improve your mood as sunlight increases endorphins and exposes you too much needed Vitamin D.
Let sunshine into your space and experience the benefits to your mind and body.
