Winter is always harsh on the skin — dry, flaky skin is not fun and can be painful. Here are some beauty tips for winter are sure to help your skin!Don't forget the sunscreen

Just because it's cold and gloomy out, it doesn't mean you should skip out on the sunscreen. Opt for something with an SPF of 50 or higher.

Don't forget your hands

My hands, especially my fingers, tend to get extremely dry during the colder months. During those frigid days, don't forget to wear gloves and always keep your hands moisturised.

Take care of your lips

Keep your pout kiss ready by using a gentle scrub and good balm daily. If you don't have a scrub, an old toothbrush or a wet washcloth will do the trick. Using a humidifier and drinking plenty of water, also help keep your lips flake-free.
