Emu Oil for the Winter
Posted October 15, 2009on:
Winter is fast approaching and as I sit here typing I’m wrapped up in a scarf and a big jacket, with the impending coldness of the month we really need to look after ourselves.
As someone with repetitive strain injury I have found that my wrists get worse in the winter due to cold hands, this is also the case for arthritis sufferers. To combat the aches and pains you often get throughout the winter months try some Emu Oil with Glucosamine to help ease pain and swelling. Hopefully you won’t intend to move from your seat in front of the fire but use that Glucosamine cream just in case you need to.
The cold weather and harsh winds can dry out your skin, not to mention your central heating. As soon as you switch this on it dries out the air in your home and your skin too. Now, don’t sit there shivering in your house just because you want super smooth, soft skin; whack that heating on and invest in a good oil based moisturiser such as the Emu Oil Face Creams. Moisturising your skin with the day cream will protect your face from the drying effects of the environment and the night cream will help to replenish your skin whilst you sleep. Also, as a bonus they are both anti-aging too!
Your hair can also suffer in the winter, with the wind whipping it into chaos and your central heating drying it out you need something that can help protect against all this. Using a product such as Emu Oil Shampoo followed by the Conditioner can help to tame frizzy hair, keep it looking soft and shiny and also will rid you of any nasty dandruff. I’d recommend tying your hair back when you go outside on a windy day. Not only will you look more controlled but you can then get to your destination, let their hair down, and amaze the wind swept crowd with your stunning, shiny locks.
Hands suffer in winter due to the cold and the rain, people expose their hands to wet gloves, snow, icy rails and damp pockets. All this can make your hands go dry and crack
. Find a good hand cream such as Emu Oil Hand Cream that you can pop into your bag and use as soon as you get in from the cold. This will keep your hands hydrated and will stop them from cracking with all the temperature changes.
In the winter the sun can still be strong enough to damage your skin, especially when there is snow involved. Lips are the most vulnerable to this damage so make sure you carry a lip balm with you at all times. Emu Oil Lip Balm will hydrate your lips and won’t leave them feeling dry as soon as it has worn off like Petroleum Jelly. On particularly sunny, snow covered days wear a thin coat of sun cream under your lip balm for added protection.
