Take those piled up holidays and go out on a turf with your buddies or family for a good hiking experience. Visit peaceful valleys, tea garden estates and destination spa therapies to bring about an edge to your winter months. Adulting does not have to mean you can’t treat yourself to a vacation.

Skin care is so important during winter, as proper care throughout winter leaves a mark on your skin for the entire year. Use bright shades of lip tint and embrace the fun colors of winter. Men need to moisturize their skin in winter even if you think you don’t need it. Harmful UV rays can take a toll on your skin, so make sure you have put on enough sunscreen on exposed skin.
