It is important that we protect our skin during the winter periods, as skin can be prone to dryness and chapping, especially on the cheeks and lips. Use a natural moisturizer containing nourishing ingredients like cocoa butter, coconut oil, and shea butter. These ingredients provide a protective shield from harsh winter weather. It is also important to hydrate the body with plenty of water and hot drinks. Coffee can cause dehydration, as it is a diuretic, but herbal and/or black tea are good choices.
