Everybody knows it’s important to drink more water throughout the summer months, when we’re likely to sweat more and become dehydrated, but not many realise how important it is throughout the winter.
When temperatures drop the air becomes dryer, so our bodies absorb less water through other means. As well as this, water intake is likely to drop throughout the season simply because many people think it is less important than in summer.
However, it is worth noting that feeling thirsty is a pretty late indicator of dehydration. Throughout the winter months you are far more likely to experience dry lips, dry skin, and even symptoms which may trick you into thinking you are unwell, like a dry cough or mild headache.
Whether you are a skincare junkie, a trier (but not always a doer), or completely clueless, you need to go for a facial.
This isn’t just because it’s a fun, luxury treatment, but because a skincare specialist will examine your skin, discuss any specific issues (such as pigmentation, breakouts, congestion or ageing) and give you advice on what to do and products that will help.

Since the world heard about Meghan Markle dating a British royal, everyone wanted to know everything there is about the actress-turned-princess. When it comes to her flawless beauty routine she has said she follows Danielle Collins face yoga.
Ms Markle says she highly recommends Face Yoga: “I regularly do facial exercises, I swear it works, as silly as you may feel. On the days I do it, my cheekbones and jawline are waaaay more sculpted.”
