Shower time
Your first instinct is go super hot and fair enough, it's cold outside! However, hot showers actually strip your skin of oils and moisture. Next time, go lukewarm so you don't dehydrate your pretty self.

Get your glow on
Banishing lack lustre limbs one application at a time, a little daily nourishing self-tan will always make you feel better. Plus, it smells like Frangipani. Yum!
