Winter is Coming: Ways to Prepare for the Cold Weather

Now that we are slowly transitioning into winter, you might be raring to bust out your winter coats, skiwear, and sweaters. You may even be planning a Christmas getaway to some of the best ski slopes and resorts in the country. If anything, you might even be up for a romantic and adventurous getaway in the woods, where a cosy cabin awaits you.

Since winter is coming, preparing for the long, cold season ahead is essential. Aside from wearing more flannels and even jackets, how else can you make this weather more bearable for you?  Below are some effective ways you can prepare.

Amp Up the Heat

One of the best ways to warm yourself up during this time is bringing out your best cosy wear. Before wearing puffer jackets and other coats, make sure to have this washed thoroughly by a professional. You never know when dust and other mites might have settled whilst these were in storage.

To prevent yourself from suffering from the dreaded frostbites – which as you know can result to the loss of a limb, fingers, toes, or other extremities – wearing gloves, salopettes, hats, and undergarments would definitely help your case. If you don’t know where to start, Uniqlo has a wide range of clothing that is equipped with Heattech technology. This means that the fabric and its very fibres are armed with heat-generating properties which allow the wearer to preserve their natural body warmth.

The latest collection and collaboration of this huge brand is with the widely-renowned Alexander Wang. Their concept perfectly marries Heattech with underwear. Here, Wang’s collection allows you to wear each piece on the outside as well, helping you showcase its simplicity, beauty, and functionality.

Make Your Home Cosy

Since the holidays are coming near as well, planning to make your home presentable and comfortable for your guests should be at the top of your list. One way to do this is by installing thermal insulated curtains. Since your windows are susceptible in letting drafts come in, make sure to ward these unwanted chills by using these thermal ones. You’ll be thanking yourself once the winds become harsh and the frost starts settling in your property.

Skin Care as a Priority

During this stressful time, make sure you don’t neglect taking care of your skin. Unless you want your face to show cracks and signs of aging, it’s best to invest in skincare today. One of the best ways to preserve the condition of your skin is to get a humidifier, particularly to help increase the moisture level in your home.

Aside from drinking lots of water, another way you can make your skin thrive and glow is by gently exfoliating with. Whether it’s a physical scrub or a chemical exfoliator, you can make sure that your skin is buffed well. This allows moisturizers, serums, and other hydrating essences to sink well into your skin, helping you achieve the radiance you deserve.

Don’t let the cold wear you down. Instead, take this time not only to pamper yourself but also spend some quality time with your loved ones. Who knows, you might just find yourself snuggling in the comforts of your own home, under layers of blankets and jackets.
