Here's How to Prepare Your Skin, Nails, and Hair for Winter
Three beauty experts give tips on winterizing yourself for the chilly months ahead.
Jasmine Swann, founder and owner of Dunkin Kehn in Briarcliff Manor, recommends microcurrent treatments in order to keep skin healthy: “Adding microcurrent treatments to your facial helps promote circulation and resiliency in your skin when it’s at its most stressed; it boosts collagen and elastin production with repeated treatments. It’s the downtime-free, results-oriented facial treatment dubbed the Red Carpet Facial by those in the know.”
Owners of Hairdo in Irvington, Melissa Gamero and Naomi Cendeelis, say this season can take a toll on your hair and scalp. “Exfoliation of the scalp is so important during colder months. Most people experience dandruff during the winter, and hair growth slows. Hair breaks off easily and clogs the follicles, preventing hair from growing. R+Co makes a vegan and cruelty-free scalp scrub called Crown. Using this treatment is a must.”
Natasha Wood, founder and owner of Brushed Up: Nail Art Studio in White Plains, sees her share of cracked hands coming through her studio. “Wintertime can wreak havoc on our skin, causing it to become dry, itchy, cracked, and even flaky. Combat this by incorporating an oil-based moisturizer into your daily routine. Oil blends are great for overnight use on delicate areas of the skin for deep absorption. Don’t forget to wear gloves when heading outdoors, and stay hydrated.”
