We’ve got your Head-To-Toe guide to surviving what winter throws at our hair, skin and nails. The season of cold brings “the dry” in full effect from indoor heat, brisk outside air and less natural body moisture production. During these anti-humid months, there are many things you can do to combat the lack of environmental moisture. Check out our basic tips and some favorite products to help get you through the season!
BASIC TIPS :
• Drink lots of water — keep hydrated from the inside
• Use a humidifier if your home is especially dry
• Don’t take super long, hot showers — too long and you end up evaporating moisture from your skin
• Pat your skin dry rather than rubbing
These tips are all well and good but adding in specific products to aid in moisturizing is usually a necessity! Here’s what we recommend from head to toe:
During winter, nails may become dry and brittle. Silk Elements 100% Pure Oils provide a luxurious moisture boost and come in several options. Simply rub a few drops and into your nails and hands. These versatile moisturizing oils work just as well on skin and hair.
