Dry Skin Blaster – Oat Mask & Bath Soak

WELLNESS CORNER with Rogers Foods Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Tammy-Lynn Bye, Bye dry, itchy skin…. Dry skin can be irritating and inconvenient but is usually harmless.  Caring for your skin and ensuring it doesn’t dry out is essential, as uncared-for dry skin can lead to atopic dermatitis (eczema). Prolonged and excessively dry skin can trigger eczema causing rashes and cracked skin. Dry skin can happen any time of the year when your skin is exposed to dry weather conditions, overuse of hot water when bathing or exposure to certain chemicals (think cleaning products). Dermatitis is a term used by the medical...

Take Care this holiday season

Make 2023 Special for You! WELLNESS CORNER with Rogers Foods Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Tammy-Lynn  Life is crazy! I promised myself that for 2023 I would slow down some and try to stop and smell the roses more, make my family time a priority with more memorable moments before my final child leaves for university and genuinely appreciate the fruits of my labour.

IS BREAKFAST REALLY IMPORTANT?

 BREAKFAST….. means “to break the fast.” It is the first meal of the day after a stretch of not eating overnight. I don’t know about you, but I am not a morning breakfast person. For me, eating breakfast feels more like a chore or a burden. I do love breakfast. A warm bowl of oatmeal or granola, but I’m more inclined to eat it at noon instead of 7 am. Breakfast is essential to help our bodies and minds function correctly. You certainly can get the proper nutrients needed at any other given meal, but feeding your body and mind...

Sunburn and Oats?

Yes, it works! Oatmeal is not just for breakfast. It’s been a long hot summer, and some of us enjoy the weather and being in the sun. You may have overexposed your skin and done some underlying damage. If you’ve overindulged in Vitamin D, relief is only as far as your pantry away. For sunburn relief, consider using your breakfast cereal on your skin! A component of oatmeal called colloidal oatmeal can help to heal your skin from sun damage and irritation.
