However, annoying part of winters for me was chapped cheeks, cracking lips and super dry skin. It was really a nuisance, as much as I loved morning and evening winter breezes. I despised, its effects on my facial skin. Once, I remember I was so much cramped up by the ill effects of dry winter weather that I didn’t wanted to go out even for a walk.
