Winter is usually a period that requires preparation.You have to slowly align your kitchen to cooking different types of meals, and bring down your inventory of warm clothes.

But there are certain mistakes we do in this cold season without our realisation, and the repercussions can be a little difficult to handle later.

Hot Beverages and Soups:

Thanks to the nature of this season, we drink a lot of hot beverages like coffee and tea, and increase our intake of caffeine more than usual. It will be a good thing to keep a tap on those hot beverages tempting to hold during the cold season. Instead drink warm water, decaf coffee or decaf tea too. Though tea has lesser caffeine, it tends to add up at the end of the day.

Drinking soups is a healthy alternative, but try to make soups at home. If time is an issue, you can make some in batches and store. Reaching to packets/sachets of soup on a daily basis is not healthy, considering the amount of preservatives usually added to them.

Drink Water :

You have probably heard this any time of the season. During winter especially, keep a tab on the amount of water you drink. Since your body is cold and does not allow you to notice how dehydrated it really is. While all the layers of clothing leave you warm, it conceals the amount of water needed by your body. Keep drinking water, warm or hot during winter, and stay hydrated.

Moisturise :

It is a good idea to invest in some good moisturiser suited specifically for winter. Winter is a season when you skin is exposed to some cold air, and the moisture content is very low or nil. So either a new intense moisturiser or moisturise regularly, at least three times daily would leave your skin supple and soft.

Hair Care:

Your hair needs extra attention in winter, not because it will shed due to the weather, but because just like your skin, it gets frizzy and dry due to the cold air. It is better to cover your head with a hoodie, and/or oil your hair regularly before washing it off. Be sure to wash off the oil and not leave it overnight, as it will cool down your body further and cause a cold.

Feet Care:

Winter is a time when your feet turn super cold and dry. Some ways to protect them are to apply foot creams regularly, and immersing your feet in a tub of hot water with some rock salts and essential oils. They will do the magic to your tired feet, and leave them moisturised for long.
