Gobble Up These Tips to Ensure a Healthier YOU
The shift from fall into winter brings many changes. From crazy weather patterns and cooler days to holiday schedules and winter sports, the new season can alter many things in our lives—including the way our skin responds to different weather. Dry, itchy skin is often associated with temperature changes. So, it’s no surprise that November is National Healthy Skin Month. With this in mind, our team felt now would be a great time to offer tips on keeping your skin—and your home—extra healthy during this time of year.
We recommend finding time this November to take care of yourself and your family. After all, if we’ve learned anything this year, it’s that staying healthy requires making smart choices—especially in the era of coronavirus. So, in addition to recommending professional heating services in your Norfolk home this fall, here are five awesome tips to help you live your best life throughout the rest of 2020.
1. Drink water.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ. So, the health of your skin is like your body’s calling card. The way it looks says a lot about what’s going on inside. Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day is recommended to keep your skin healthy and supple. Water helps flush out unwanted toxins so you can radiate a healthy glow.
2. Schedule an indoor air quality checkup.
Your skin is often affected by the quality of your indoor air. Having extra dry air inside your home not only results in poor skin quality, but it can also affect your furniture. Dry air can make floors creaky, cause wood furniture to crack and even dry out leather. Call our team to perfect your indoor air quality —so your air offers balanced humidity.
3. Get your water quality checked.
Getting a handle on your water quality is always a plus. Minerals like iron and magnesium are often found in hard water and can affect your skin by stripping the body of its natural oils. If you have hard water, investing in a water softener is a great way to help put that moisture back into your body.
4. Wear sunscreen & moisturize.
This one is a no-brainer: Continue to wear sunscreen—even in the cooler months when the sun is still high in the sky. You should also moisturize daily to block in those good oils. Many moisturizing products have sunscreen protection built it, so that makes this tip even easier to follow!
5. Get your air ducts cleaned.
Sometimes the things we cannot see create the most harmful skin conditions. For example, if your air ducts are dirty, they could be circulating unwanted bacteria, mold, mildew and other pollutants into your living space. Mold and mildew can cause itchy, dry skin and even eczema, rashes or hives. A solid and thorough cleaning of your air ducts can eliminate this worry!
