Top 3 Tips for Winter Health & A New Western Canada Partnership! #Giveaway

We can deny it all we want, but the fact is... winter is here to stay. Protecting our skin and lips from the elements is just as important as staying healthy to fight off cold and flu, and Rexall has everything you and your family need to keep healthy this winter -- all while earning Air Miles -- a new partner in Western Canada.

Top 3 Tips for Winter Health:

1. Water - 

The importance of water cannot be stressed enough. In fact, most of us are terrible at getting our daily ounces in (including me). Drinking water will not only work from the inside out to moisturize skin, hair and nails, but it will also help you process and ward off flu and cold. 

If you are having trouble drinking enough water, there are a few things you can do to make it easier. Carrying a reusable water bottle with you at all times will lend you access to water when you need it. If you are the type who doesn't like the way water tastes, adding lemon, lime, cucumber, mint or berries will infuse your water with refreshing tastes for more enjoyment. (My favourite is adding frozen berries or grapes!) 

Finally, most of us carry a cell phone these days, so if drinking water is something you struggle with remembering, there are many free apps that allow you to log your water intake. Going through this process is valuable, as you'll notice how easy it is to go through a whole day without drinking enough.

2. Sunscreen - 

Cold temperatures often give us a false sense of not needing sunscreen; however, many -20c days in Alberta are accompanied by endless blue sky and glorious sunshine (the lack of ceiling keeps temps extra cold). Winter play in the snow is an easy way to obtain a sunburn, so don't get caught slipping off your goggles at the end of day skiing to find you forgot something. Whoops!

3. Preventative -

Handwashing - Lather up with soap and water for 30 seconds, then rinse.

Vitamins - Taking a multivitamin, Vitamin C or Vitamin D can help you maintain a proper level in your system for good immunity.

Herbal Remedies - Products like Oil of Oregano (in capsule or liquid format) can help boost your immune system naturally, while Cold FX is a ginseng-based herbal remedy that cuts the frequency of illness, the duration and the severity. *Purchase Cold FX at Rexall until Nov. 27th for 30% off and 30 Airmiles*

Flu Shot - The flu shot can be obtained at most pharmacies across Canada, to those over the age of 9. If you have young kids, a nasal flu shot can be obtained at your public health office. Plus, if you head to Rexall for your flu shot, they'll donate a shot to a person in need in Northern Uganda with their 'shot for shot' program.
