Chapped lips are one of the effects of the weather on your skin, and there's nothing attractive about it. To avoid this uncomfortable look, you need to get yourself a lip balm. Be sure to have a lip balm handy on the move wherever you go for frequent touch-ups.

Dehydration is one of the effects of this weather. The dry air requires the frequent consumption of water. The less water you take, the more dehydrated you feel and dry your skin feels. You'll be doing yourself and your health a lot of favour by having a bottle of water with you every time you step out. This is not the time to load your system with carbonated drinks.
