Moisturise your skin

It can be relatively easy for your skin to become dry during the colder, dryer and windy days. Ensure that you are moisturising adequately during these times, perhaps with a much richer product.

Stress

Stress is usually a common culprit of the negative reactions that our body may experience. Try to avoid stress whenever you can. Practising relaxation techniques, exercising or even chatting to a friend about your problems can help to relieve stress.
