By the time we’re this deep into winter, the little humidity Calgary had in the air seems to have completely disappeared. You're itchy all the time, your face feels like a prune, and your hands feel like they’re wearing skin that’s one size too small. Dry skin is a real pain this time of the year, so I sat down with our Health & Beauty purchaser, Jacqueline Stutz, and got some tips on how to fight dryness.
First things first, take a look at what you’re eating. Sunnyside Natural Market, is all about solving your problems with good food first. What you put into your body can make a big difference on how your skin feels. For example, how much processed sugar are you eating? Processed sugar is a skin irritant that can lead to blemishes and acne - simply limiting how much you're getting in your diet could make a big difference. Another simple solution is making sure you're getting enough water every day. Staying hydrated is often overlooked because of the colder weather and the fact that most of us are less active during the winter.
