Brrrr! These long winter months can take a serious toll on your skin, hair, and lips. Fortunately, there are a few quick and simple steps you can add into your daily routine to beat the winter air.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Add a slice of lemon, orange, or a few frozen berries to make your H2O a little more interesting!
Exfoliate your lips and skin with a gentle exfoliating scrub to get rid of dead, dry cells on your skin’s surface. You can even make your own brown sugar & vanilla lip scrub (yum!) with only a few ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!

Moisturize daily. Remember, the best chance for your skin to soak up moisture is immediately after a shower or bath! Treat lacklustre locks once a week with mask of Moroccan or coconut oil.
Protect your skin and lips with the power of SPF all year long. Try using a moisturizer (or foundation) and lip balm with SPF included!
Snack away on celery, cucumber, and walnuts, and try incorporating salmon, quinoa, and eggs into your diet during the winter. These are among the top super-foods for boosting moisture and nourishment in our skin and hair! ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/28/hydrating-foods-dry-skin-hair_n_2193919.html)
