Since winter air is cold and humidity levels are low, try an oil-based moisturizer. The more oil a moisturizer contains the more effectively it protects against moisture loss. The oil will actually create a barrier on your skin that will retain more moisture than creams. It is also important to shed wet clothes and shoes immediately as these can irritate the skin.Toni Anne
A simple little tip my mother gave me years ago was to keep my perfume in the refrigerator. This will help keep it fresh much longer. This is really a good idea in the summer months, especially here in Chicago. Our summer's can get pretty HOT & HUMID! So go ahead and try it, you've got nothing to lose.Sandy in Chicago
Do you ever find yourself getting a little lazy, tired or sleepy in the afternoons? Well then, if you're looking for a quick pick me up instead of reaching for a candy bar, pop or a cup of coffee, just dab on or spritz on some of your favorite perfume! Works like a charm! And best of all, it's caffeine free with no calories!Sandy in Chicago
Applying the matching powder fragrance along with the matching lotion will make the cologne last a lot longer than applying cologne alone. Apply the lotion after shower wait about a couple minutes then apply cologne and then powder where ever you want it to go. Also; if you have the bath gel for shower or bath beads etc. Use them in bath. This will seal your fragrance on your skin to provide you with a longer lingering fragrance! Hope you enjoy my tip.

Winter, a time of hibernation for many plants and animals can also be a time for the Winter Blues. Aromatherapy is the natural antidote to the emotionally draining effects of winter. Try citrus oils such as grapefruit, lemon and lime for a refreshing and uplifting feeling. Plus, pine, eucalyptus and camphor can treat congestion.Pam J.
