5 Health & Beauty Must Haves for Winter

If this Polar Freeze has you shivering in your boots, you're going to LOVE these must-haves for your Winter health & beauty needs!

Along with cold weather, Winter brings some health & beauty challenges: dry skin, brittle hair, sore throats, the common cold, and more.

Here, we've chosen our 5 favourite products to tackle your Winter health & beauty needs head on.

Dry skin & Hair: Jojoba Oil

For dry skin in Winter, you can't go past Jojoba Oil. Jojoba is is 100% plant based, natural skincare, perfect for your face and body. Naturally hydrating and non-greasy, dry skin literally soaks up Jojoba, and sends it where skin needs it most. Jojoba locks in moisture without clogging pores, and improves skin's natural hydration. We love using Jojoba oil when fresh out of the shower, all over the body and face for nourished, plump, smooth Winter skin. If your hair gets dry and brittle in Winter, run a little Jojoba oil through the ends after showering to bring back moisture and shine. You can also use Jojoba oil as a hair and scalp treatment if your hair is dry or if your scalp is flaky in Winter. For natural beauty - face, hair and body, our Jojoba Oil is our top pick!

Dry, cracked lips: Propolis Lip Balm

Dry and chapped lips are another unfortunate Winter issue. It can be both uncomfortable and unsightly. While there are plenty of remedies for dry lips, our Propolis Lip Balm does more than just moisturize dry lips - it actively heals and nourishes the skin too. Propolis is an ancient food compound with an incredibly high natural vitamin and mineral content, as well as natural antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Propolis has been widely reported to promote wound healing; that's why we use it our lip balm.

Sore, scratchy throats: Propolis Liquids

Lots of us get that niggling sore or scratchy throat when we're a little run down, and whatever the reason, this seems to happen more often in Winter. Sometimes, this is the sign of a cold yet to come. We like to keep our oral health in tip top shape during Winter, to stop any icky bacteria from taking over. For this, we love Propolis in liquid form. It's natural antibacterial properties help maintain a healthy environment in the mouth and throat and when used as a throat gargle or mouthwash, can be handy for keeping any nasties at bay.

Winter Immunity: Propolis Capsules

Immune health is always a top priority in Winter, more so in the last few years. Some fundamental ways to support your immune system are practising good hygiene, eating a nutrient rich diet, getting enough exercise, fresh air and plenty of rest. Beyond this, we can all give ourselves an extra boost with supplemental support, nutrients and foods or superfoods with proven immune benefits. Propolis is one of those. Its nutrient profile includes Zinc, Vitamins E, C, D and Quercetin - all known for positive impact on the immune system. Propolis also has natural antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties. In capsule form, we love Propolis for general wellbeing, and immune support in Winter.

Sore joints and stiffness: Cararthron

Many people with existing joint aches and pains seem to feel these more in Winter. There are arguments both for and against this, however, if you are one of those people, you might be looking for something to help. As with immunity, you can't beat a healthy diet, consistent movement - even if limited - rest when needed and even physical therapies too. Anti-inflammatory foods and supplements may help in Winter too. Cararthron is our 5th Winter favourite for this reason. A herbal product, Cararthron can assist to reduce mild joint pain, relieve symptoms of mild arthritis and improve joint flexibility.

If you need some Winter Health & Beauty Helpers, we hope some of our 5 favourites become your favourites too!
