Cold snap: winter skin, hair and wellness tips

Whether it's dry skin and hair, or aches from the cold, winter has a way of taking a toll on your body. Here's how to take care of yourself in winter.


Cold weather can have a big effect on your hair, so it's important to look after it during winter. The right shampoo and conditioner will work wonders, but if you aren’t sure what products work best for you and your hair, just ask your hairdresser the next time you go in. Getting your hair trimmed regularly will also keep it in good condition by removing the dreaded split ends that happen because hair tends to dry out in winter. There is also the option of putting a treatment in your hair every once in a while (at home or by a professional), which can promote healthy hair.

If you get dry skin in winter, you are not alone! Turn a negative into a positive by treating your skin to a facial. It’s the perfect way to hydrate your skin and have a bit of relaxation time. With so many facial options, you can leave it up to the experts to help you find out what kind of facial your skin is screaming out for.

Winter can put a lot of stress on your body, so it isn’t a bad time to treat yourself to a massage. The benefits include increased circulation and improved skin hydration, plus it can help you with the dreaded winter blues. You often spend a lot more time inside in winter, but getting a massage can be a great excuse to get out of the house and enjoy some relaxation time.
