But you can protect yourself from these foes, you just have to know how to fight them. When winter shows up on your doorstep, you’ll notice changes that are minor at first. Maybe your lips get a little chapped, or maybe your arms or legs get a little dry and itchy. But did you realize that everything about you changes? Your hair is probably a little drier, and your nails might chipRead More →
