Winter can be harsh on skin and hair. As we head out in below freezing temps, complete with blizzards, everyone can use a beauty tune-up. Which is why we asked 3 Top Beauty Pro's for their tips on how you can survive the winter beautifully
By this time in January, dry split ends, static, limp locks, and even less motivation to wash hair are just a few of our daily battles. There is some good news!
According to Christo, Global Artistic Director of Curlisto products and Christo Fifth Avenue Salon, washing your hair two times a week is just enough for the winter season. Your hair routine in the winter should be using light styling products so that you hair can stay as clean as possible during the week. A couple touch up products is just what you need to get by.
PRO TIPS: For the curly girls, Curl Reform, $13, is wonderful for giving your curls lift and structure. Blow Me Clean Dry Shampoo, $28, is great for all hair types, in order to revive next day hair. Remember: less is more in the winter!
Suffering from tired, dull skin? It's tricky to get Vitamin D during this season. Ruta Peckuviene, Esthetician at Eve Salon, recommends a gentle but effective facial.
“The Escape mini facial ($55 for 30 minutes) revives tired skin, leaving you with radiant in half an hour. There are no extractions, making this ideal for an instant glow before any event. It’s also only 30 minutes, so you can pop in on your lunch hour and leave with a sparkling skin!”
Struggling with adult acne? Is the cold weather chapping your skin while still producing enough oil to clog your pores? We asked Paula Simpson, Holistic Nutritionist and Healthy Skin Expert, to explain this phenomena.
"Many chronic skin conditions are correlated with digestive health (i.e. leaky gut syndrome, food allergens, harmful bacteria overgrowth within the gut,) that can depress skin immunity and offset normal skin function and appearance. By incorporating certain antioxidants such as Zeaxanthin along with Pre and Probiotics in a dietary supplement this helps to rebalance gut and skin micro-flora and promote skin immunity. ZSS offers a synergy of nutrients that help to clear skin and bring out natural radiance by working both from the "inside out" and "outside in". A true skin nutrition cleanse.” Simpson reccomends: ZSS Clear Skin Method, $160 for a one-month supply .
