I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Harsh Weather…

...soft skin

A combination of factors makes the winter months tough on skin.

Cold air contains less moisture, winds are stronger, the humidity is lower, and indoor heat all combine to cause dry skin and exacerbate conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and severely dry, cracked skin—especially on the hands, feet, and face. Though the dry air of winter may suck the moisture from your outer layer of skin, with the right plan of action you can minimize the damage and lock moisture in, giving your skin that smooth, soft feel until the warm months of spring.

Follow these tips for healthy skin all year long.

Limit Showers

While a long, hot shower or bath is a tempting way to relax after a long, cold day, spending too much time in hot water will only deplete your skin of moisture. To keep your skin hydrated, limit your shower or bath time to 10 minutes once a day and use lukewarm water. When drying off, rub the towel gently rather than vigorously over your body.

Those with severely dry skin may find a therapeutic oatmeal bath calming.

Moisturize and Moisturize Some More

The lotion you use in the warm months may not get the job done in the winter. If your skin tends to feel chapped and dry despite the lotion you lathered on, it’s time to find a stronger moisturizer. For your body, use a lotion that’s more like an ointment and is oil-based to provide a protective barrier on the skin and lock in moisture. Humectants (also known as sorbitol, alpha-hydroxy acids, or glycerin) are other ingredients that help retain moisture on your skin.

Be wary of oil-based creams for your face, since most kinds will clog your pores. A few types of oil that don’t clog pores include mineral oil, almond oil, and primrose oil.

Layer Up

You pile on the sweaters and jackets to face the cold, but as soon as you’re indoors, you start to sweat in the heat. Dry, itchy skin easily becomes inflamed and irritated when overheated and sweaty. The best way to dress in the cold months is in layers so you can remove them as you get warm. Cotton fabrics work best for the layer against your skin.

Gloves are important for protecting your hands from the harsh temperature changes. Since the skin on your hands is thinner than other body parts and doesn’t have as many oil glands, it’s harder to keep moisturized. Try wearing cotton gloves for an hour or two after applying lotion and your hands will emerge soft and smooth.

Like gloves that protect your hands, warm socks guard your feet. Just take them off or change pairs if they get wet or sweaty since wetness can worsen itching, cracking, and eczema. Give your feet some TLC by applying a thick layer of lotion after showering before bed, and then wear socks overnight.

Moisturize the Air

Moisture in the air is called humidity, and it’s lacking severely in the winter, particularly indoors. Low humidity worsens dry, itchy skin. The best way to moisturize indoor air is with a humidifier. Whole-house humidifiers are helpful but are quite pricey. Small, single-room humidifiers are more economical and several placed throughout your house will help prevent dry skin for the whole family.

Apply Sunscreen

It may be cold, but the harmful rays of the sun don’t hibernate. You can still get a sunburn in the winter, especially when the sun reflects off bright white snow. Before heading outdoors apply a broad-spectrum moisturizing sunscreen to your exposed skin.
