Make a commitment to renew your health in the coming year with these powerful immune-boosting techniques, secrets to luminous skin, and cold-fighting superfoods.
The beginning of a new year is truly a time to reflect, assess, and refresh your life. Trying just a few of these techniques can get you on the path to renewed wellness for 2019.
1 WINTERIZE YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
Have you noticed that your skin can become especially irritated, dry, or even chapped during the cold-weather months? There are many variables that can contribute to this issue, including biting winds, central heating, and the drastic difference between outdoor and indoor temperatures. So, how do you get back your summer glow in the middle of winter?
TRY OIL CLEANSING: It might seem counterintuitive to apply oil to your face in order to cleanse it, but this practice can help rebalance your skin. Many ove-thecounter face washes actually strip the oil out of your skin, which leaves skin overly dry and perpetuates an endless cycle of the body trying to compensate and produce more oil—leaving your skin either too dry or too oily. Oil cleansing is a great way to keep your skin looking radiant and balanced all winter long. Try olive oil, castor oil, almond oil, rose hip seed oil, or jojoba oil—either alone or in combination.
Just add about a quarter-sized amount of oil to your hands and massage it into your face for 1–2 minutes. This will help draw out any impurities or makeup residue. Next, put a warm, moist towel over your face to gently remove any excess oil while still keeping a light coating on your skin.

EAT MORE OMEGA-3S: Balance your skin from the inside out by adding more wholesome omega-3 fatty acids to your diet. Eat walnuts, fatty fish such as cod and salmon, and flax and chia seeds for luminous skin.

2 GRAB A BOWL OF BONE BROTH
Bone broth has become increasingly popular for one important reason: it’s incredibly nutritious. Bones are rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and gelatin. This simple-yet-powerful combination has been shown to help with leaky gut, support collagen production, improve joint health, and provide essential nutrients.
If boiling bones yourself seems like a tall task, there are many quality readymade bone broths available at health food stores, as well as bone-broth-enhanced supplements that make it easier than ever to get a healthy dose of this super-nutritious food into your diet.
