Licorice may best be known as a distinctive tasting candy, but did you know that licorice is found in Aveda’s Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme? In fact, licorice is actually a root with anti-inflammatory qualities and it also works as an anti-irritant! So on these cold mornings make sure to apply a layer of Aveda Hand Relief to retain moisture and to help in the healing process of dry skin.
Aveda also uses licorice as a natural sweetener in their Comfort Tea, which is another wonderful product during cold weather. Comfort Tea is gluten free, naturally sweetened and has the added benefits of peppermint as well. Like licorice, peppermint is an anti-irritant and can be extremely beneficially for those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other digestive ailments. Recent studies show a 50% reduction of symptom severity in 75% of people tested.
So keep those sweet smelling products close during these cold days, and enjoy the advantages of a healthier winter.
Stay warm and healthy!
