When the cold winds blow and the streets are covered with snow, it can be easy to slack on your self-care routine. After all, long pants and bulky sweaters make it hard to see the value of keeping up with waxing, plucking, shaving, and polishing. However, you deserve to feel beautiful all year round, and have the sexy confidence to handle whatever life throws at you, even when it’s freezing outside. Don’t neglect yourself this winter, and end up with a bigger project come springtime!
Here are some tips for keeping your entire body soft, healthy, and beautiful this winter.
Waxing can be a great way to corral the body hair that you don’t want to deal with, and it’s worth keeping it up during the “off season.” Letting it all grow out, or trying to manage it with a razor can spell trouble for your skin. Soft, smooth skin feels better under clothing, and is easier to moisturize.
Here in Colorado, the dry, cold winter air can stress out your skin, so it’s time to up your moisturizing game. Head to your favorite beauty boutique and pick up creamier, thicker lotions and nourishing oils for your body, face, and hair. This keeps things soft and forms a protective barrier against the seasonal winds.
It can be hard to feel attractive and energetic this time of year, so it’s worth investing in small, regular salon appointments to keep your spirits bright. Manicures and pedicures are perfect for this, and you can pick fun new nail colors to express yourself.
If you have dry, brittle, or color-treated hair, winter is the ideal time to do some deep conditioning of your locks with a special, boutique hair appointment. Talk to your stylist about the treatments that would be best for your hair this time of year.
We all know the luxury of getting a great massage, and this healing art is even more beneficial during the winter. A massage will improve your blood flow, muscular relaxation, and mood- all things that are needed in the cold season.
