I love the fall and winter. Excuse my basic-ness, but nothing brings me more joy than Pumpkin Spice Lattes, apple cider, sweaters, hot chocolate, the smell of pine trees…you get the point.

However, as much joy as I find in the colder months, I do NOT find happiness in my dry skin. I not only have to combat dry skin on my face, but on my body as well. Le sigh. 

And sometimes, no matter how consistent I am with moisturizing and lathering my face and body – the patchiness, redness and dullness seems to remain. Does this all resonate with you? If so, know two things:

  1. You’re not alone.
  2. You and I most likely (ok, highly) need a spa treatment.

Don’t let the chilly weather get the best of you. Book one of the following treatments:

1. Seaweed Mud Wrap

Call it [seaweed] the “superfood” for your skin – one seaweed wrap treatment will renew your skin by removing dead skin cells and hydrating it with proteins, vitamins and minerals.  Experience this goodness by booking a Seaweed Mud Wrap at Organics Elements Spa in NY, New York or a Hydrating Seaweed Facial at Salon 418 Salon & Spa in Bartlett, Illinois.

2. Fruit-Infused Treatments 


Why? Because according to PopSugar, “fruit-based exfoliants” are more easy on your skin, which is perfect since your skin is prone to being more sensitive in the cold weather. If you live in Irvine, California, try Massage Heights’ Deep Tissue Massage with Grapefruit Foot Scrub or the Pear and Almond Seasonal Fall Facial at L’Institut Sothys in NY, New York.

3. Cryotherapy

There’s a reason why you may feel more blue in the fall and winter: you’re not getting as much Vitamin D. But no need to worry, there’s a fix for that. With just one session at New York City’s CryoVigor, you’ll forget the blues and feel energized again. Nonetheless, beware: the treatment involves you stepping into a chamber of nitrogen gas at below freezing temperature for 3 minutes.

4. Hot Stone Massage

A hot stone massage may sound like the obvious treatment to get during the chilly months, but do you really know why it’s recommended? Aside from lessening muscle tension, a hot stone massage can fight fatigue, a word all too common in the fall and winter. The heated stones are healing the body and mind, completely transforming your overall being. Book a Himalayan Hot Stone Massage at Skin Spa New York in Boston, MA.
