Canadian winters can be harsh, but that doesn't mean you can't set up your mind and body for a cozy and enjoyable season. Here's how:

1. Your skin needs extra hydration and care during the colder months, so also invest in moisturizers and deep conditioners for your hair. Since the sun doesn't stop shining in the winter, you'll also need UV protection. Travel-size moisturizers that you can keep in your bag or car will ensure you can stay protected from winter's severe elements all day long.

2. Re-vamp your winter wardrobe. The best way to do this is with new accessories like scarves, gloves and toques. Don't forget to consider colours and textures when pairing your accessories. Make sure your winter boots have the latest slip-resistant technology. Try the Wind River Bivy winter boots with Green Diamond from Mark's.

3. Winterize your vehicle. Your winter tires can go on as soon as the temperature drops to 7?C. Pack an emergency kit in your car in case you get stranded in the colder weather and be sure to include a first aid kit, bottled water, granola bars, boots, gloves and an extra winter jacket.

4. If you have a furry friend, don't forget to clean their fur more frequently. Exposure to temperatures below zero can cause frostbite on the feet, nose and ears. Ice can also form in toe pads, so make sure to thoroughly check their paws.
