Lotil1. Go for a walk – exercise is a natural mood booster so if things are getting you down try a brisk walk in a park or countryside. Even a five minute walk can lift your spirits and most children would also benefit from some time int he fresh air.

2. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables to counteract all the sweet and fatty foods you may have been indulging in.

3. Keep hydrated – drink lots of water and fruit juices. Hot water with a lemon or lime squeezed into it has the added bonus of a vitamin C boost.

4. Protect your skin – especiaily if you are out in the cold and wind. Lotil has a hydrating and gentle formula to soothe skin on the face or body. Remember central heating has a drying effect on skin which may exacerbate any sensitive or dry skin conditions. Lotil is great for hands that have been doing too much washing up!

5. Laugh – it's said to be the best medicine so try to enjoy the high moments. Play with your children – especially if they are old enough to play party games – and enjoy their company and let them entertain you.
