Winter is never easy for me. I definitely get the winter blues and in a slump after the holidays until about April. I know I’m not the only one but it doesn’t change that it’s not the best feeling. Over the years, I’ve put a few things into practice to prep myself for this season.

12 Benefits: This helps my hair stay healthy and fresh during the winter months.
Bergamot Essential Oil: I diffuse this oil a lot during the winter. It helps with seasonal depression and is definitely a mood lifter. (I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t trust it). 😉
Lifefactory Water Bottle: I try to stay hydrated as much as I can year round. But during the winter months, it helps my skin from getting dry and helps me feel more alert instead of sluggish.
Vitamin D Capsules: I started taking these a few years ago and still do to this day. (Only during the colder months though). During the summer, I am in the sun A LOT. I realized that a main thing I was missing over the winter, which also affected my mood, was Vitamin D. I love how clean this brand is and it has made a noticeable difference in my mood.
Frankincense Essential Oil: First of all..this smell is heavenly. Second, I recently started combing my moisturizer with a sprtiz of this combo: Frankincense oil and distilled water (that I keep in a bottle like this). I squirt two pumps of my moisturizer into my palm and then two sprays of the combination into my palm before rubbing it onto my face and neck. I feel like it has made such a difference in my skin. Diffusing this oil is also ah-mazing.
Curling Iron: Not only treating myself to getting my hair done, but then actually doing it just feels good.
I’m also a huge advocate for getting massages regularly. It helps my stress levels and body feel better overall. What are some of your self care tips? I’m all ears. 🙂
