Welcome Betta Community! 

Today is the start of something great. In Toronto, Canada it is mid-November the wind is just starting to break across your skin leaving a stained physical memory of dehydration. We are lucky today the weather is at a high of 14C. The sun is shining admirably through my window, reminding me of the last days of Summer. 

All my Four-Season peeps know the reality of whats to come. Old Man winter is just around the corner, ready to wreak havoc on our skin and our mood. Vitamin D is a hell of a thing (and it's not the vitamin D your thinking about ... LOL), it is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally found in very few foods. The Sun gives us power in many different ways, Vitamin D being one of them. The Earth spinning on the opposite side of the sun and we are left with less sun than our body requires. Research shows having more melanin reduces your ability to synthesize vitamin D from the sun, letting us know the BIPOC community is at a higher risk of suffering from symptoms known as the "winter blues". These are extended periods of minimal sunlight. We need to find as many ways to enrich our lives with self-care.

Tried and true ways to provide your body with Vitamin D during these stubborn winter months are through ingestible items. Eating fatty, oily fish, such as salmon is a great source of vitamin D as are mushrooms. 

The lack of Sun result in cold and frigid weather. This weather creates an environment that causes skin damage  more frequently. Our skin becomes dry and a great way to protect, heal and moisturize our skin is by maintaining hydration.

Our butter conditions and hydrates the skin leaving it moisturized, without leaving a greasy top layer.
