Fall skincare and wellness essentials
Cooler weather is around the corner, and we are thinking ahead with tips to stay healthy and hydrated as the air gets drier and our immunity goes down. We’re sharing our top fall picks for your skin and health from Life Brand at Shoppers Drug Mart – always a convenient and affordable option for moms.
Moisturizing lotions are essential once the cold, dry air arrives, and on top of that indoor heating sucks moisture from the skin. We’re fans of the Life Brand lightweight moisturizing body lotion as it hydrates and protects skin, and is also fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. It is recommended you apply your moisturizer within three minutes of showering for best results.
Keep your face soft and smooth with Life Brand moisturizing cream containing ceramides and hyaluronic acid. Ceramides are naturally occurring molecules that penetrate the skin to attract moisture, while humectants help retain the moisture. The sustained-release formula means your skin will stay hydrated all day long, but it won’t clog pores.
Don’t forget your hands
Life Brand’s facial masks are always a favourite, so we were excited to try their new hand mask – and this did not disappoint. With nourishing ingredients like shea butter, avocado oil, jojoba oil and sweet almond oil, it left our hands feeling soft, hydrated and oh so silky smooth. We’ll be using this on high rotation once temperatures dip.
Support your immune system and combat cold season with a boost of vitamins C and B, antioxidants and electrolytes. Try Life Brand’s Effervescent Vitamin C Powder; each packet contains 1000 mg of vitamin C, and helps to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. You can take one when you feel the first inklings of a cold – but with delicious new raspberry and lemon-lime flavours, we’ll be getting our vitamin-C fix daily.
