Dry Skin, Chapped Lips And Other Winter Problems You Can Fix

Depending on where you live, this winter has ranged anywhere from “mild” to “oh, it’s winter?” No major blizzards, way less snow than usual, and generally warm-ish temperatures across the country have made many people question if true winter is ever coming. But even though you’ve barely noticed a change in the weather, your skin, nails, and hair definitely have–and they’re probably starting to show signs of their plight.

Even in less-than-brutal conditions, your body will let you know when it’s been the victim of the season’s beating. Whether it’s flaky skin, brittle nails, or hair that clings worse than a sweater dress to sweater tights, these symptoms can be treated, both by care and keeping, and what you’re eating and drinking.

You may be going gloveless this warm winter, but your body still needs a little extra love. Survive the slow slide into spring with these tips for fixing the winter icks, from the inside out.

      Now wait a minute…. I just got done reading an article on this website saying that we shouldn’t use petroleum jelly because it’s not eco friendly and it’s dangers to our skin, now you’re saying to apply it after exfoliating your lips. What’s the deal?
