8 Solutions for Your Winter Beauty Woes
You've heard it a million times before: You need more moisture in the winter. But when you're suffering from cracked nails or a scaly scalp, it's too late for prevention -- it's all about solutions. Here are cures for all your winter woes
Problem: flaky scalpSolution: Do at-home conditioning treatments.
The skin on your scalp is just like the skin on the rest of your body -- winter weather will dry it out. But keeping it healthy is as simple as basic conditioning. "By applying conditioner to your scalp, you're reinforcing the moisture barrier," says dermatologist Francesca Fusco, MD. For an at-home treatment, she suggests applying conditioner to your scalp and throughout your hair; then, wrap your hair in a warm towel.
Fusco also suggests looking for products with botanical oils. "They're very beneficial, and you don't have to worry about them clogging your pores," she says. Sunflower oil, almond oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera are some of her favorite ingredients. Try Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Total Care Nourishing Daily Conditioner, $8.79.
