The weather: Affecting you in more ways than one

When it comes to the weather, most people understand humid days lead to frizzy hair, while colder, drier ones can result in bouts of dry, flaky skin. Luckily beauty products like Bliss Fabulous Everyday Face Lotion SPF 15 can help relieve your tight skin, while hair products like Steiner Shine Drops Hair Serum 50ml can help you manage frizz. However, Prevention magazine reports there are also other style and health issues that can be caused by changes in weather, a few of which you might have never heard.

Boosting the price of jeans
When it comes to ways the weather can affect your lifestyle, the cost of jeans most likely doesn't come to mind. However, droughts around the nation in recent years have resulted in a shortage of cotton production, thus boosting the cost of jeans and other cotton-fabric items. 

According to a recent New York Times article, making and washing one pair of jeans uses 919 gallons of water.

"That includes the water that goes into irrigating the cotton crop, stitching the jeans together and washing them scores of times at home," the news outlet reports.

Washing your jeans less frequently is one way to reduce water waste, while buying only organic cotton brands can also make a difference. Prevention reports organic cotton farms work to protect the soil to ensure it holds more water naturally, thus cutting the need for excess water.

Baking goods' prices climb
If you're into baking, the habit may soon be going out of style. The cost of peanuts and peanut butter products are on the rise due to the lowest harvest numbers in recent years. The cause behind the low numbers - continuous higher than normal temperatures. In fact, peanut harvesting is down by a whopping 15 percent to 2011 figures, the news outlet reports. 

The only good thing? Less baking could mean inches off of your waistline in time for summer.

Wine shortage
Most ladies like to unwind each night with a glass of wine while soaking in the tub or catching up on their favorite TV shows. However, wine grown in California may soon be on the outs if extremely hot summers continue to be the norm. Experts predict hot summers could cut current wine production in half over the course of the next 30 years. This issue might not only cut wine production, it's also likely to also boost prices.
