We are in the thick of winter, that is for sure, but it doesn’t mean that we have to hibernate ourselves and our bodies. Yes we may indulge in the oversized knits and winter wear; we may want to stay indoors a little more often, but honestly winter is no excuse to not take care of yourself and your body.
Often we can all get into a rut, but with the new year approaching, there is no time like the present to finally put things into action and start taking better care of yourself. There are so many areas that you can start, so a great idea would be to focus on an element that you want to improve. With that in mind, here are some of the ways you can blow off the winter cobwebs.
Maybe we need to think about defuzzing
There are some major positives to Winter because we spend most of our time wrapped up in all of the layers, it means we don’t have to spend too much time on hair removal when it comes to our legs and bodies. But with holidays fast approaching there are going to be more and more opportunities to strip off those layers and start enjoying the finer weather. This means we are going to have to pay some real attention to defuzzing our bodies. Hair removal can be a bit of a chore, and I understand that. There are also many different options to consider. Shaving can be the easiest and most cost efficient way of removing hair, but it would require you to do it more often. Then there is waxing which can offer a more long term solution, and you can either choose to go to a salon or do it from the comfort of your own home.
Winter doesn’t mean you need to remain in oversized clothing
Now is the ideal time to start thinking about how you look and your style, and this can be a great way to jazz things up a little. There are so many parties and celebrations to embrace, and even just stepping out of your comfort zone can feel amazing. Maybe you want to embrace the prom dress or fitted bodycon. Perhaps you want to wear heels instead of boots all of the time. Maybe you want to add a bit of glitz to your wardrobe and embrace those sequins. Now could be the ideal time to make some of these changes and style yourself a little differently. You may be pleasantly surprised by how good it makes you feel.
Wrapping up in layers means your skin may have started to dry out a little. Making it feel rough to touch and out of condition. But you can get that glowing skin look once more by simply adding a simple exfoliation to your routine. Using an exfoliator every time you shower or bathe is a great way to help your skin regenerate new skin cells. Plus this is a good practice for when the summer months do make an appearance and you want to show off a little more skin.
Give your feet some love
It’s approaching the season where you may be wanting to wear sandals or flip-flops, but it’s fair to say your feet will have been cooped up in socks and boots for the last few months. That might mean your heels are cracking, your skin is dry and your nails are needing a polish and some love. So spend some time giving yourself an at home pedicure and moisturise those feet every night before bed. You won’t believe the difference it will make, and it will have you ready for those summer shoes in no time at all.
Don’t overindulge during the winter and festivities
It can be so easy to indulge in all of the sweet treats and lovely food on offer during the winter, especially during the festive period. It can be tempting to reach for all of the comfort. However, once Spring comes around you may start to regret it. Enjoy yourself, but keep in mind that sometimes it is healthy to have these things in moderation.
Let’s hope these tips help you to blow off the winter cobwebs.
