The hazards of winter are upon us – and we would like to share some tips on how to care for your skin and hair during these cold, dry winter months. Dry skin and hair, eczema, dandruff and yes even hat head can keep us all from looking and feeling our very best. Here are some ways you can nourish yourself – even in the coldest of winters:
Add moisture to your hair care routine.
All of the ways we keep warm in winter actually pull all of the moisture out of our hair and skin. Try using a moisturizing hair masque once a week. We recommend Pureology Hydrate Hydra Whip Masque. You may also want to consider changing up your shampoo and conditioner for those cold winter months.
Amp up your daily moisturizer.
Most people don’t know that you should have a warm season moisturizer and a cold season moisturizer. If, however you have that one moisturizer you just can not live without – try adding a serum or concentrate to boost moisture during the colder months. We recommend trying the Stone Crop Serum from Eminence Organics. This intense hydrator relieves the appearance of signs of aging as you benefit from its super antioxidant benefits.
Get Regular Trims.
You can prevent split ends and keep hair healthy by getting it trimmed regularly. In between visits to the salon, we recommend trying Pureology’s Antisplit Blow Dry Cream. Add moisture and reflective shine while protecting and maximizing the vibrancy and integrity of color-treated hair.
Replenish Dry Hands and Feet.
Did you know that Salon Herdis offers a luxurious and affordable treatment for winter hands and feet? The Salon Herdis signature paraffin treatment is a warm, oil-based wax treatment that softens skin while soothing chronic joint pain and relaxing stiff muscles. Warm paraffin improves blood flow, increases range of motion and can be helpful for chronic skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.
Winter is the perfect time to renew your skin.
In the wintertime there is less moisture in the air, which causes our skin to be dry and dull. Rosacea and eczema can also flare up in the winter due to dry skin. A chemical peel can address these problems with exfoliation and hydration. We suggest booking a VitaSkin Exfoliating Peel from Eminince Organics. These customized peels address more than just dryness – choose calming, healthy aging, clarifying or brightening based on a consultation with one of our expert estheticians.
