Farmgirl Beauty Secret #4: Keep usage of heaters to a minimum.

Don’t get me wrong- in no way am I suggesting that we freeze! Sometimes we just can’t avoid using heaters when snow is plenty and little toes are frozen. However, I live in Southern California, where the sun shines nearly 365 days of the year. Around this season when the morning air is getting ever so slightly brisk, I can’t help but notice people misusing heaters when heaters have no business being on. Growing up on a farm has tought me how valuable energy resources are; I have it pounded in my brain that we should all conserve when possible. Aside from spending precious energy, turning up the heat for a prolonged period of time ages your skin. Heaters drain moisture from the air inside your home and literally move moisture from your dermis. Unless there’s snow outside, bundle up with your favorite sweater(s) and/or favorite person before you turn the heat up. When using the heater, drink lots of H2O, use a thicker, richer face cream and place bowls of water around the house to help counteract the drying effect.

I know what you mean! I get soooo dry when the heater is on!

Indeed! And I hate the opposite problem too - when they misuse the air conditioner! So often it's freezing cold in the buildings in the middle of summer and just ridiculous! It really wouldn't kill anyone to turn the air down and just wear shorts!

LOL I couldn't agree more, Catherine! It's no wonder why we're having an energy crisis.

I can't stand it when ppl waste electricity! I'm always cold so I keep a light jacket in the car and office.

Oh that's a great idea! Target has super cute cardigans for cheap that's great for layering :) They fit easily into any tote!

I know exactly what you mean. I keep the heat set low low low. my husband is always complaining about how cold it is. But he gets his way with the heat once it snows. :-) Thanks for another great tip!
