Helpful Wintertime Hints

You have to admit one thing about this blog: you just never know what you’ll read here.

And, although I don’t profess in any way to give advice about health or beauty, I have discovered a couple of little tricks that might be of some help during this cold weather.

The first one I’ve known about for a long time. My sister, June, actually told me about this years ago.  When you have a head cold, each time you wipe or blow your nose, dab Chapstick on it afterward to prevent chapping. It really works!

The next tip I just learned about this week.  For many years, I’ve suffered during the winter with rough cuticles and skin around my fingernails. No amount of cuticle oil or hand lotion or Vaseline could soften them. A couple of days ago, someone told me to use Neosporin ointment.  I cannot believe the difference in just two days. It really works!
