Winter Skincare Essentials

Brrrr winter can get cold up here in Canada, and everything that comes with it can be really tough on your skin. Do you ever get chapped lips, dry hands, cracked heals, or flakey patches on your skin as the temperature drops? Either way, I can totally relate.

Have you ever wondered how you can extend that nourished, dewy look you enjoy in the summer, right through the winter? Well you’re in luck, because I sat down with Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Liz Wolfe author of Eat the Yolks, and The Skintervention Guide to get you some answers…. And do I have a load of incredible information for you!

Before I forget, don’t just disappear once you’ve watched because you could win a copy of Liz’s Skintervention Guide, and if you’re not chosen, purchase it for 33% off; that’s $24 instead of $37!

    I should win because the dryness is Calgary is wicked on my and my family’s skin and I’d like to learn how to tackle it in a more natural way 😉

  • Juli

    What a fabulous interview! I learned so much, eg. I hadn’t heard of oil face washing or using tallow-based face cream. Definitely going to give it a try. I would love to win a copy of the book as clearly I have much to learn! :). Thanks again and all the best…

    • Sarah Ramsden

      And the random winner iiiiiisssssss…… Juli! I’ll send you an email to make sure you get this, as well as pass it onto the Skintervention team.

  • I would love to win! The Calgary winters are brutal on my skin and I have never been able to figure out a solution I am happy with

  • I live in a COLD place too – would love this – thanks for sharing!

  • Tonya LaDow

    My family would really benefit from this since we live in a cold, dry climate!

  • Alex @ Alex James Wellness

    So fabulous! I have to get my hands on some tallow balm. 🙂 I’ve also been gearing myself up to try oil cleansing, and listening to this got more more motivated/excited about it!

  • I bought the book a few weeks ago, but if I were to win I would gift it to a friend who has skin problems. They are so bad and she is self conscious she sometimes does not leave the house.
