Your winter wellness guide: how to stay healthy during the chilly season

Category: health

We know those warm, summer days motivate you to keep active and eat fresh, healthy food. But that doesn’t mean winter can’t invoke the same inspiration to achieve these things. The coldest season of all is the most important time to take care of yourself and help your body to defend itself from chilly weather ailments, such as the common cold and dry skin.

Thankfully, we’ve put together the ultimate winter wellness guide to help you beat the blues and boost your immunity. And the best part? All of these products can be found at your local Stockland Shellharbour!

Warm up from the inside out, with these immune-boosting nutrients

An apple a day won’t keep the doctor away, but vitamin C might! The Swisse high strength vitamin C tablets from Blooms The Chemist support a healthy immune system function, help reduce common cold symptoms, and maintain skin health. For the ultimate power-trio, pair your vitamin C with Ethical Nutrients Mega Magnesium tablets. These are designed to offer support for muscular cramps, assist with energy production, and relieve stress from your body. Last but not least – zinc! The Herbs of Gold Ultra Zinc+ capsules contain vitamins A and B to help support eye function and healthy vision, as well as assist with your body’s metabolism. You can find Ethical Nutrients, Herbs of Gold, and more brands at Nutrition Boss, which offers up to 50% off on vitamins and supplements.

Now, for when you really want to warm up, the Good Bones organic bone broth from Wild About Health (Go Vita) is truly good for the soul and your gut! For the ultimate feel-good winter morning, grab yourself a bowl of this steaming goodness, a T2 lemongrass and ginger tea from Coles, and rug up on the couch with a comfy throw and book from Kmart.

Achieve glowing skin and optimise your home for winter with these goodies

We all know winter can wreak havoc on our skin, so keep yours feeling supple all season long with the Drops of Youth Concentrate from The Body Shop. This serum ‘genie in a bottle’ gives you that fresh-faced, healthy-looking glow that we all reminisce about in winter. While you’re keeping your face hydrated, remember that your hard-working hands also need some TLC. The Body Shop’s range of hand creams smell incredible and fit perfectly into any bag or pocket. The same goes for the Natio face moisturiser with SPF 50+ from Priceline – the ideal winter sunscreen that doesn’t leave your skin feeling heavy or looking patchy.

Got your skincare sorted? Now it’s time to prep your home and surroundings. A colour-changing LED light diffuser from Dusk is an eye-catching aromatherapy addition to any home. Its gentle smells and smoothing effects help you relax, boost your mood, and help to keep clear airways for easier breathing. While you’ve got the diffuser going, nourish your body with some Amazonia Raw Nutrients Greens from Nutrition Boss, which has spirulina, kale, spinach, and more, to give you energy and vitality throughout the day. And for when you’re ready to call it a day, pop on a luxurious, silk sleep mask from Peter Alexander and tuck into bed feeling like royalty.
