And when the day descends itself into an early nightfall, you feel grumpy all over again because the cold winds run a shiver down your spine and the next thing you know is that you are down with fever and flu.

The main tips for the winter season are not taking excessive Vitamin D supplements, sunbathing or taking in the extra supplements, heavy protein rich foods, in excessive cold regions people eat blubber and buttery foods to enhance their fat levels in the body to keep them warmer in the cold season.

The winter can be brutal on your skin. No matter how you take or deal with it, cold weather results in itchy, rough, and flaky skin. The skin needs extra moisture and care. The amount of creams you put onto your skin may not just suit you. It is best to stick to home based remedies.
