The Big Thaw – Prepare Your Skin for Spring

With winter comes many great things, but one thing that’s not so great? The effects harsh winters have on our hair and skin! 


Cold weather causes humidity levels in the air to drop, stripping our skin of its moisture and natural oils. Cold temperatures mixed with the increased use of indoor heating systems, warm showers, and sudden temperature changes cause the skin to appear lackluster, flaky, and in serious need of hydration. 


Adopting healthy practices, such as moisturizing daily, exfoliating properly, staying hydrated, and eating a diet rich in fatty acids, can help alleviate some of the symptoms winters have on our skin. Sometimes though, at the end of a long, frigid winter, our skin could use a little extra TLC. If you’re looking for ways to treat your winter-havocked skin, check out these three body and hair treatments that Spa Bleu, the best spa in West Dundee, IL, recommends to reverse winter damage.
