Winter Wellness.

There's no denying that temperatures have dropped, it's to be expected it's heading closer to Winter but with colder temperatures also brings cold & flus and other ailments that cold weather can provoke such as joint pain. I've rounded up some products from an online website called Chemist that I feel will be suitable for a lot of us. Chemist have a wide range of items from health and beauty to medicinal.

Natures Aid EchinEeze Echinacea 90 Tablets
The benefits of Echinacea I'd heard from before and one of my best friends swears by them. Echinacea is a flower that is classified as a herb, several species of the Echinacea plant are used to make medicine from it's flowers, leaves and roots. It helps boost the immune system and cuts the chances of catching a cold by 58% but if you already have a common cold it'll reduce the duration by one and half days. It'll help alleviate pain from headaches, herpes, bowels, measles, gonorrhea, measles, sore throats, stomach ache, tonsillitis and toothache. On top of all that it can be a natural remedy for anxiety, depression, social phobias and ADHD! Incase you're feeling blue this winter, preventing or curing a common cold - try Echinacea!
West Lab Magnesium Flakes 1kg
By adding magnesium flakes to your bath it's an effective way to add to your bodies magnesium levels. Magnesium deficiency can lead to problems within our bodies but adding to those levels helps induce sleep by calming and de-stressing our body and mind, healthy bones, relax muscles and regulate blood pressure. By using this in the bath our magnesium levels are able to rise safely because taking this orally can produce a laxative effect - nobody's got time for that!

Weleda Massage Balm with Arnica 100ml
Comprised of pure plant oils from sunflower and olive blended with extracts from arnica flowers and birch leaves. This is used to help increase blood circulation and encourage natural healing. You'll also notice lavender and rosemary essential oils that add to the fragrance for a natural relaxation. It's good for those who have been working out and also if you've got pains to help relax and stimulate. My knees play up so bad in the winter, it's very off putting. They can swell up if the chill gets to them - ugh. Prevention is key I find.

Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion 250ml
When this time of year comes around it's all about making sure the skin is truly hydrated and moisturised. Eucerin is great, this has no fragrance, parabens or colourant making it a good choice for skin that's sensitive and very dry - now I have neither but I find the richer the better to keep it well protected. It's full of highly concentrated fatty acids (evening primrose oil and grape seed oil) and contains the soothing licorice extract that helps restore the skins natural barrier! . I find it's easy to rub in, leaves no residue and my skin can stay moisturised for about 10 hours daily!

Dr Paw Paw Tinted Peach Balm 25ml
I adore me some Dr Paw Paw, without a doubt. I've had the original of this before and decided to opt in for this peach pink balm for a change. As the name suggests it has a peach - pink tint. Making it great for use on the lips and cheek for adding colour while giving your skin the attention it needs thanks to the PawPaw that's full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins C+B, it'll aid in repairing skin and calming anything down thanks to it's anti-inflammatory properties while giving the skin moisture. The tint is meant to adapt to individual skin tones while you can build up to your desired tone. Fragrance free meaning that sensitive skin won't be bothered.

What do you think of my choices? How do you keep well during the winter?
