Ragdale Hall's hot tips this winter!

It's that time of year for cosy nights in before the festive celebrations begin. Let us take you away from the cold outside and melt away stress and tension with one of our specialised treatments to help you float away into a dreamy winter wonderland.

Throughout the winter it is vital we rebalance and rejuvenate the mind and body and take care of our skin by following Ragdale Hall's top tips to help you feel and look amazing for the party season.

Homecare Tips

Drink plenty of water or even herbal teas such as, green, white, nettle and fennel teas, these are rich in antioxidants. They will deep cleanse the body by flushing away unwanted toxins.

Eat the correct foods:  You are 80% more likely to get a cold in winter so making sure your immune system is in tip-top condition is important. Milk and dairy products such as cheese, yoghurt and fromage frais are great sources of protein and vitamins A and B12.

When it's cold and dark outside it can be tempting to fill up on unhealthy comfort food. If you find yourself craving a sugary treat, try a juicy clementine or satsuma instead or sweet dried fruits such as dates or raisins.

Winter vegetables such as carrots, parsnips, swede and turnips can be roasted, mashed or made into soup for a comforting winter meal for the whole family. Explore varieties of fruit and veg that you may not normally eat.

Try new activities for the whole family Don't use the cold winter months as an excuse to stay in and lounge around. Instead, get out with the whole family to try out a new activity, maybe ice-skating or taking a bracing winter walk on the beach. Regular exercise helps to control your weight and boost your immune system.

Ragdale Hall's top tips for the winter and our favourite must-haves


Body Beautiful

Exfoliate and nourish the skin. Winter is a difficult season for the skin. It is a must that you exfoliate once to twice a week to eliminate excess dead, dry and damaged skin cells. This will allow your new skin become stronger and more vibrant with life so it can cope with the winter months. Moisturise daily to protect the skin from the seasonal change and to prolong your summer glow.

Facial skincare for radiance

You don't need the sunshine to have a healthy glow. It is essential to thoroughly cleanse, tone, exfoliate and moisturise to continuously hydrate the skin. Regularly use a rich facial mask, one that is absorbed, deeply nourishing the skin.

Hydrating hand and refreshing foot therapies

It's that time of year when your feet are hiding in your boots and hands in your gloves. Your nails are made of keratin - the same as our hair.  We condition our hair every time we wash it; however we fail to do so with our hands and feet. They are crying out for tender loving care. It is vital to put back essential nutrients, minerals using a good hand cream.

Must-Have Holistic 

To banish stress ready for the winter, Aromatherapy is the secret.  By burning tranquil essential oils such as lavender, sandalwood and myrrh at home you will de-stress and rebalance the mind and body. Peppermint, sage and citrus oils will awake the senses and cleanse the mind. Yoga and Pilates are perfect to help you wind down.
