Get the best seasonal picks from the spa menu when you keep reading.
1. Stocking stuffer: Cold weather means that your cuticles start to crack and nails begin to chip more often. Schedule a paraffin manicure and pedicure to soften tough heels and wind-chapped hands. The warm wax creates a barrier that locks in moisture long after the treatment is done.
2. A clean slate: A full-body scrub is something you can easily do at home to rid yourself of dull, flaky skin. Winter is also an ideal time to start a detoxifying regimen of dry brushing. Arm-baring dress, here you come.
3. Gift wrapped: Head to your local spa for a detoxifying body wrap. Mud or seaweed varieties will rectify that bloated feeling postholiday feast. These treatments can also help you get over that last bit of seasonal sickness and dry patches on the skin.
4. Best face forward: Getting a facial in the Winter can be tricky. Skin is often more sensitive during this time of the year, and bad holiday habits can lead to even more skin issues. In lieu of more aggressive treatments and formulas, opt for gentle, fruit-based exfoliants and intense hydrators to infuse moisture into your complexion.
