10 cocooning tips to pamper your skin in winter
Winter has put on its coat. When the temperatures drop, it's time to get into cocooning mode to take care of your skin. Here are ten tips that might help you do just that.
Cushions and blankets

Choose soft textures such as velvet or pastel colours. Use them everywhere, whether in the living room or in the bedroom.
Throw offers unparalleled comfort when the cooler weather comes into the house. Throws are always welcome when snuggling up with a series, a film or simply reading a newspaper on a warm sofa. It can also accompany you to bed.
Choose a soft material such as fur, knit, velvet or wool, as they are both warm and pleasant to the touch.
