While winter brings with it some of the most festive holidays, beautiful snowy scenery and lots of reasons for celebrating, there are also several troubles that come with this season. The good news is that there are many remedies for battling everything that winter brings.

Fight Dry Winter Air
Dry winter air may be one of biggest nuisances of winter. It has the potential to dry out your skin and sinuses and leave your skin feeling extra dry. The good news is that there are ways to beat the dry air. By wearing a scarf or neck warmer that covers your lips when you walk outdoors you can help ease the dryness of chapped lips. Applying a lip balm each day will help to lock in moisture. Lathering a moisturizing lotion on dry areas will help combat dry skin. When indoors this winter, a humidifier can promote more comfortable air.

Brave the Cold
Just because the temperatures are dropping, it doesn't mean you have to feel a constant chill. Spice up your winter wardrobe with essentials that will keep you warm even on the coldest day. A long, down coat is a great investment that is sure to block out the elements. Furry boots, fluffy scarves and cozy sweaters are also must-haves for your closet this winter. These items will keep you warm and looking great.

Beat the Winter Blues
