Winter Clothes

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

For how many degrees celsius?

U can try Loccitane Shea Butter for body and hand. I find Dr Hauschka lip care good but it's too pricey. Face - Clarins Super Restorative series which is also not that cheap. But it is a very rich emollient. Bring disposable water-based masks from Sasa :)

If budget conscious, Olay cream and Vaseline lip balm are decent too:)


JETSETTER, many thanks for your reply. I think it's around 5 degrees Celsius.
the olay cream should be ok for teenage boys as well, right?

But Olay cream has a "GRANDMA" fragrance. I'm worried your teens will cringe!

I use physiogel intensive. Myself and kiddos tend to have dry skin. So when in cold and dry countries we use heavy moisturisers. As we also tend to have sensitive skin, we need hypoallergenic products as well.

For exposed areas, repeated application is required. So I have a small tube in my bag at all times. I find it important to apply on your hands and even nails, cos then the skin tears, it can cause quite a bit of discomfort.

I use SKII products with SPF 30+ for face so I use that on my kids' face as well.

For lips any moisturising lip balm will do. Main thing is to apply frequently.

Applying plenty of Nivea on exposed areas and lip balm before going out.

Hi all,

I am looking for winter clothing for my family. We will be going to Korea during first week of Dec. During our visit, we will go to Jeju & ski resort. Does anyone know if the uniqlo heattech is good? Roughly how many pieces of tops/bottom do we need to wear, esp in the ski resort?
