Colder Weather, Healthier You

Fall is around the corner -- pumpkins, pumpkin spice, apple picking, apple cider -- a few of our favorite things. Along with yummy treats and fun activities, also comes the chilly weather. 

When the weather gets cooler, the air gets a lot dryer, meaning not drinking enough water in the fall and water months can cause some serious consequences. Being dehydrated can make you feel tired, lazy, sluggish and even more susceptible to germs. With Covid not disappearing anytime soon, it’s extra important to stay away from germs. Another reason to stay hydrated, especially if you live in a colder environment, is that staying hydrated can actually keep your body warmer. Your body needs optimal amounts of water to keep it working as best it can, when you’re dehydrated, your core temperature begins to drop. When you step outside into the crisp air, the last thing you want is to have a low internal body temp. Drink water -- stay comfortable. 

While the air around you starts to dry out, so does your skin. We’ve all suffered from chapped lips, but chapped skin is just brutal. Keep your skin healthy, glowy, and hydrated by increasing your water intake as the temperature starts to drop. Whether you’re drinking your Soma, moisturizing after showers, or using a humidifier -- water is key. 

Our tip? Keep drinking water (and of course, get vaccinated!)
