I live in upstate New York so I know a thing or two about winter. I am not a huge fan of the snow and the cold and the ice – not mention the dry skin. It is hard enough taking care of myself in the winter, but having two young girls makes it harder. I have put together a list of items that I have discovered to help me get through it, and I hope they help you too! This guide contains affiliate links.
