3 Pains of the Winter Season & How to Prevent Them1:50:00 PM
Winter is one of my favorite seasons and it's filled with so many wonderful things. There's snow, Christmas, sitting by the fire, giving presents, and more! What isn't there to love about winter? Well I'll give you a few things.
I'm not sure if this is just a thing that affects me and my long hair, but static seems to just cling to me (gotta love a pun). My love of hats and fleece clothing for the winter season leave me in a static state and accidentally shocking myself and others.
To try and tame the static I sometimes carry around a dryer sheet (used or unused). I prefer used so there's not such a strong scent, but it's totally up to you. Now you're probably wondering what I do with the sheet, well since it is in it's nature to help eliminate static, this can also help your hair! I however cannot give a testimonial for curly hair, but for straight hair it usually helps. You just run it along a section of staticky hair slowly, not too fast, and it should tone down the static quite a bit. Make sure to only go down with it, not back up your hair.
One thing I do to help this is by moisturizing lightly before bed, before going outside, and whenever I feel as though I may have experienced windburn or chapped skin. Sometimes this can help soothe the irritation and even reduce redness. If you haven't already read my review on my current moisturizer, check it out here!
#3 Wet Shoes
Now this may not be a problem for some people, but living in a cramped little box (otherwise known as a dorm) isn't exactly easy. There's barely enough floor space for breathing let alone a boot tray. So, what do you do with your wet shoes? Here's a few ideas to try to prevent water soaked carpet.
The first idea you could do is to get an old rag or towel and lay it down and put your shoes on it, then just pick it up later so it's not exactly permanent, but a more of I need this now sort of thing. Second idea is to put them on top of a plastic bag or some other waterproof plastic ware (like a tablecloth or something). This one isn't exactly a problem solver, as your boots will just be chilling in their own water for a little bit, but it won't be soaked up in your carpet! Another idea is to get a welcome mat and just leave all your boots on top of that.
