Moisturizing body lotion is a must
Dry, scaly skin is one of the results of a long winter. That’s why applying body lotion every day is essential to maintain a healthy skin. Carrying a small bottle in your backpack is an easy idea that can save you once your knuckles start stinging. For the best-smelling lotion options try Bath and Body Works. Walmart has many cheaper options that are still amazing. Aveeno, Lubriderm, Vaseline (cocoa butter) are our favourites.
Where bundling up fails, drinking something warm can take the chill away in an instant. Conveniently, Fredericton is home to a lot of local coffee shops, so you have plenty of options if you’re running errands and need a quick warm-up. My personal favourite is Coffee and Friends – it’s right downtown, it’s small and cozy, the owners are super friendly, and you’re supporting local businesses, which is always nice. If tea, coffee or even hot chocolate aren’t your thing, then a steaming bowl of soup is a perfect alternative that can warm you and fill you up at the same time. To try on campus: Mixing hot chocolate or French vanilla with tea bags is a tasty idea that can help you stay warm. Try Tim’s hot chocolate with a mint tea bag.
Drink less alcohol
Even though it might briefly make you feel a little bit warmer, alcohol actually lowers your body temperature. If you’re having a few drinks with friends, try your best to stay away from the outdoors as much as possible! Your body will thank you for it.
Winter has always seemed like the perfect season for baking, and when I think about how warm my kitchen gets after a day of baking, it makes complete sense. This can be a fun way to warm yourself up on a cold day, plus you get to reap the delicious benefits when you’re done.
