The most treasured memories of winter are days filled with ice skating, sledding, skiing, and building snowmen with family and friends, then retreating indoors to drink hot cocoa around the fire. Cozy activities aside, if you think hard enough, you’ll probably remember that many of those days are also filled with chapped lips and dry, itchy skin.
