  1. How to make your nails, hair and skin #ShineBright all winter

Make a moisturizer and chapstick your best friends this winter and start an easy bedtime routine. Before going to bed, make sure you moisturize well, especially on your lips and cheek, to keep your face from drying up. Remember to coat your lips with chapstick as well, to prevent the heater from drying out your lips overnight.

Whenever possible, avoid washing your hair too much as that leads to dry hair. Try using a dry shampoo instead. I use a deep hair mask to keep the follicles healthy and brush my hair thoroughly in the morning and evening. This will naturally move your scalp oils down your hairline and keep the hair smooth and healthy.

You can do one yourself with 3 simple ingredients: olive oil, honey and oats. Mix all ingredients well and make sure your hair is completely detangled before applying it from root to tip. Leave the mask in hair for 15- 20 min. Shampoo and style as usual and voilà! #DYI
