Now that winter is winking at us, it is important to hydrate our skin, hair and nails more frequently, seeing as we are more susceptible to higher levels of dryness due to the heating of our homes, offices, cars, etc.



You can’t go wrong with an essential oil to combat the frigid, drying conditions of winter. *Caveat: while most essential oil products are free of chemicals, it’s important to always read the label before opting to purchase one. If when doing so you notice terms, such as; fragrance or aroma, it’s best to stay away from the product. Your skin, being the largest organ in your body, will absorb what you put on it via your bloodstream, so be sure to feed it the nutrients it deserves!

That being said, I like to lather my skin, nails and hair (wet or dry) with Argan oil ! Pictured above is the one I use from Cocooning Love, which is a Montreal-based brand that doesn’t use any chemicals, or alcohol in their products, and does not test on animals. If you’re interested, look up their site, as they offer other products, such as all-natural deodorant, toothpaste, and more.

All in all, let’s try to curb our susceptibility to chemicals whenever we can ! There are so many chemicals, toxins, pollutants in our environment already and that we don’t always have control over.  Let’s look at what we can control, which is what we choose to ingest, wear, apply to our skin, etc. and start from there !
