Raise your hand if you’re ready for winter…

 No one?

But living in Michigan, I’ve honestly been ready since about August. We’ve all been doing the things you do to keep the sniffles away, but they seem to sneak in through the cracks, no matter how hard we try. This is why I buy Member’s Mark 3-ply facial tissues at Sam’s Club. Because buying tissue in bulk is not only smart, it’s necessary.


Obviously, having facial tissues everywhere in our house (we have no less than 5 boxes going at a time) is step one, but there are other things that we can do to stay as healthy as possible…

Vitamins? Daily.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Elderberry Syrup? Yes and yes.

Flu Shots? Absolutely.

Sadly, there’s something that happens when you go from 32 degrees outside to 65 inside.

Your nose runs. All the noses run.

Which means that we go thorough facial tissues like you would not believe. Normally, this would

Thankfully, they are completely in love with the new Member’s Mark 3-ply facial tissues, which are durable, gentle, thick, and absorbent to stand up to the toughest colds and worst allergies.

And my kids said they’re the softest tissues that they’ve ever used.

And because there are over 900 tissues per box, I don’t have to worry about them lasting.

But beyond using the world’s softest facial tissues, there are other things that we do regularly to make sure that our skin stays super soft, just like the Member’s Mark 3-ply facial tissues.


Moisturize Your Nose

Even if you’re a kid. We use a balm that is nice and thick to moisturize the area that usually gets cracked and dry during the winter every night.

If you don’t want to purchase something special, you can use coconut oil or olive oil. Just a few drops works wonders.

Invest in a Humidifier

Winter air is very dry, especially here in Michigan. Investing in a home humidifier that runs alongside our heat has been amazing.

I also place smaller single-room humidifiers in each of our bedrooms at night to help us breathe easier (and keep our skin softer).

Wear a Scarf

I bundle myself and my kids up Christmas Story style-with our scarves covering our mouths and noses. This not only helps to keep us warm, it helps to keep our skin a bit softer.

Weird, but it works.

Opt for Thicker Tissues

When we do have to blow our noses, we always opt for the softest tissues we can find, and 3-ply is far and away the best thing ever.

Obviously, when I saw that 3-ply was an option with a zillion (okay, okay, it’s like 960) tissues per box, I knew that I’d found my new go-to this winter.

So. If you struggle with unhappy, dry noses, try moisturizing, plug in a humidifier, put on a scarf, and grab some super thick tissues to give you a bit of a cushion against the worst cold and flu symptoms.

How do you survive the winters with your noses intact?
