Tips for Living Your Best Life This Winter
I don't know about you, but even though I live in Miami, I struggle to look and feel my best during these cooler months. Combine the cold temperatures, forced heating, and winter activities, and you have the ideal formula for dry, irritated skin and cranky moods.
Here are some tips to keep your glowing - inside AND out - from head to toe during the winter.
Tips for Dealing with Dry Skin this Winter
Level up your Moisturizer Game with AS OF TODAY Clean Beauty Line
Say goodbye to lotions and say HELLLO to creams or ointments. While lotions are great for summer with their thin, easily spreadable texture, winter calls for something more substantial.
Experience reactivated skin barriers, intense hydration, a radiant glow, and a reversal of stress-induced aging. Embrace your skin's transformation and reveal a more youthful and vibrant complexion.
The Full Collection includes an R-Peptide Enzyme Cleanser, R-Peptide Toner Pads, R-Peptide Ampoule, R-Peptide Day Cream, R-Peptide Night Cream, and R-Peptide Renewing Masks.
This skincare collection is perfect for soothing your skin, caring for wrinkles, maintaining pH balance, providing hydration, and so much more! Best of all, these products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, triclosan, and are cruelty-free. With these clinically tested formulations, you'll be even better than yesterday, as of today!
Price: $28-$282 (bundle) is available on Amazon.com.
Don't Forget to Avoid Using Hot Water!
Say no to scalding hot water for washing your face or showering! Using very hot water can aggravate dryness and strip away precious natural oils from the surface. Keep it gentle and nourishing instead.
Tips for Boosting Your Mood this Winter
It is so important to stay healthy and hydrated all year long - not just during the hot summer months. I feel so much better when I am hydrated, don't you?
Make Sure that You Stay Hydrated!
BrainPOP is a healthy, productive, tasteful, and fun smart soda packed with 4 amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, complemented by an anti-oxidant caffeine blend in all four flavors.
Flavors include coconut delight, mango colada, mojito madness, and dragon berry warrior. They use fruit purées that leave a fresh burst of fruit in your mouth! They're a really nice way to keep your brain active and happy...especially when you're stuck at your desk all winter!
An Insulated Reduce Tumbler will help you drink more!
I was using the 64 OZ Reduce insulated tumbler when I was working an office job in 2021. Now I've switched to the Cold1 50oz Tumbler, and it makes it much easier to get my water intake in when my Reduce tumbler keeps it cold all day long!
The REDUCE 24 oz Travel Coffee Mug keeps your coffee, tea or cocoa hot for up to six hours, so you can take that coffee or hot cocoa with you and know that it will stay nice and steamy.
You can find all of the Reduce Drinkware options at Amazon.com!
Of course, it's not all about and water and coffee! Sometimes we like to sip a nice whiskey or bourbon while we are relaxing on a chilly winter evening.

Don't underestimate the Importance of A Good Night's Sleep
As a lifelong victim of chronic insomnia - thanks ADHD and Anxiety!!! - I can tell you for a fact that a good night of sleep is paramount to having a good day.
Try Cornbread Hemp CBD Gummies for Sleep
Experience, blissful sleep with Cornbread Hemp CBD Gummies for Sleep. I have recently added these to my plethora of insomnia-fighting sleepy-time tools - AND THEY WORK!
They have soothing organic valerian root, chamomile, and lavender and are delicately infused with Cornbread Hemp's premium full spectrum hemp flower extract.
These gummies will help you fall asleep, stay asleep all night, and you will wake up feeling refreshed! I hate that lingering grogginess that a lot of OTC sleep aids give me. I just can't function with brain fog in the morning.
You can get these - and other CBD products - at CornbreadHemp.com.
Stay Warm and Cozy with Cute Accessories
We love this Ski Like a Girl Chunk Twist Cuffed Beanie
While I am not a skier myself, I am a big fan of traveling to cold weather climates whenever I can! I had planned a trip for my husband and I go to go the Christmas markets in Germany this year, but it looks like he won't be able to get the time off from work. BOO!
Wherever I do end up going this winter, you'll be sure to see me rocking this cute beanie! The poof is my favorite part!
