The weather did not come to play with us this winter, and we're just getting started. Unless you live in a tropical or desert oasis, the forecast for the next few months can include a high chance of dry, malnourished skin if you aren't careful.

But never fear, Jhené Aiko is here with a list of skincare hacks that will help you weather the cold with confidence. The 31-year-old mother of one recently slid through New York to talk to Refinery29 about her most-coveted wintertime beauty tips, and we are taking notes.

In the past, Jhené has been transparent about her struggles with blemishes and breakouts and says that along with Fraxel treatments and a healthy diet, getting to know her skin better has been a huge part of improving her regimen:

"My skin is not perfect. I deal with breakouts, rashes, and dry skin. Some days, I can have great skin days, and some days, I don't. I just accept it. Now, I enjoy sharing tips. Whenever I find a good product or treatment, I love to share it with people and be open about what I do to help my skin — just in case it can help someone who has skin like me. No one has bad skin, but we all have different temperaments."

Jhené said that she has been able to pass quite a few skincare gems on to her daughter, but 11-year-old Namiko is the one responsible for schooling her on the art of confidence.

"The biggest one I've taught my daughter is to wash her face at night. Not just in the morning, but wash off the day as well because she's starting to get her first breakouts. Also, to not touch her face with her hands. She's taught me to be more confident. My daughter doesn't care what anyone thinks. I'll ask her, 'Are you sure you want to wear your hair like that today?' She'll respond, 'Yeah, I don't care,' which I love. She puts me in my place a lot of times and shows me that she's confident no matter what."

Jhené also dished on four products that keep her wintertime skin on 10 at all times! Scroll below for more details:

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
