Do you wonder why your favorite celebrity’s skin glows during winter and why not yours? The reason is less consumption of water. Drinking more water reduces the risk of dehydration during winters. During winters, the weather becomes cold and dry. Thus, the evaporation of sweat occurs at a faster pace and that is why you feel dehydrated. So, drink bottles and bottles of water to look no less than a celebrity.
2. Take proper sleep

The major reason why people fall sick more often during winters is that they don’t wash their hands before having their meals. During winters, bacteria causing infection grips your body. If your friend is having cold and cough and you come in contact with him/her such as by shaking hands, giving a high five, eating from the same lunch, the bacteria commutes from your friend’s body to yours. Thus, wash your hand after coming home every time and before every meal.
4. Say no to wrong medicines
