Nourish yourself with these tried, tested and true products that guarantee a healthy glow
Harsh winter weather can be hard on our skin and hair, which means keeping up your self-care game can sometimes be a challenge. To make things easier for you, we've compiled a list of products that are easy to use and pack a punch when it comes to nourishment and hydration this winter.
Here are six of our all-time favourites...
1. AG Nourish Mask
With over 98 percent plant-based and naturally derived ingredients, AG's Nourish Mask is made with snow mushroom extract to deliver intense hydration to your hair. Superfoods like chia, avocado oil and mango butter, as well as pumpkin and carrot seed oils, are blended into a rich, creamy shea butter base to help revive dry and brittle hair. To use, massage into clean, wet hair and leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. For more intense conditioning, leave on longer.
2. Bleau Transcend Collection
Clay masks are great for detoxifying the skin and for giving pores a good, deep clean while still firming and offering anti-aging benefits. And whether you're looking to add elasticity, moisture and brightness to your skin (or all three!), Bleau's Transcend Collection has something for every skin type and need. Fuelled by the all-natural, rich elements of Canadian glaciers, these masks are designed to give you radiant, healthy looking skin.
3. Riversol Hand Balm
Developed for the dry, frequently washed hands of nurses, physicians, personal support workers and hospital staff, Riversol's intensely moisturizing hand balm is fragrance-free and locks in moisture immediately to help retain it throughout the day. As we've been washing our hands more than usual this year, this produt is a must-have. A little goes a long way, so just use a pea-sized amount and massage into hands.
4. MIFA Eucalyptus Coco Body Wash
This product will not only transform your skin, but leave your bathroom smelling like a luxurious spa—and that's something we can get on board with. MIFA’s 100 percent natural body wash is made with the highest quality organic ingredients and formulated with botanical oils and emollient-rich tropical plant butters for a deep moisturization. And with notes of eucalyptus, lavender, geranium and peppermint, the aromatherapeutic affects will fill all your senses.
5. Huna Nourish Calm-Moisture Face Serum
Made with organic calendula, carrot, camellia and CoQ10, this newest serum from Winnipeg’s Huna Skin delivers intense moisture to reduce redness, soothe irritated skin and provide lasting comfort. This liquid gold effectively transforms even the most dehydrated, and sensitive skin into comforted, even-toned, healthy-looking skin. Simply apply 3 to 5 drops to freshly cleansed skin morning and night.
6. Midnight Paloma Detox Fizzy Bath Soak
Need some "me time"? Midnight Paloma's Detox Fizzy Bath Soak will help you hydrate and invigorate after a long day. This blend of effective ingredients includes Epsom salts to promote circulation and help muscle tension, pain, and inflammation in joints; rolled oats to soothe and reduce inflammation; and charcoal to remove impurities and deep cleanse. Just add two tablespoons to your tub and relax.
