Winter Pick Me Ups

Winter Pick Me Ups

By Mary Clare Lokken

14_Banner_Template2If spring/summer looks are too far off for you, consider what you can do in the upper Midwest in winter to feel great and not to be locked indoors all the time.

There are still a few holiday parties left to attend. How about a fresh look from your favorite hairstylist to look fresh and gorgeous? Take a photo from a magazine; your stylist actually likes that to help communicate.

Skin dry and pale? Facials can remove layers of dead skin and perk up the skin tone. Estheticians love to send you out looking naturally beautiful but can finish your look with makeup.

Microdermabrasion treatments will bring your skin’s freshness back. Don’t hibernate; microderm.

And gone are the days of waiting for nails on your hands and feet to dry. Gel nails are instantly dry and beautiful.

Pedicures are not just for summer feet. How sad if your calluses are allowed to develop just because it isn’t sandal season. Many winter dress up looks have open footwear so keep those feet in shape year round.

Finally, as this issue comes out many of the holiday packages will be on final sale at the salon so grab what you may have put off. It’s great for gifting yourself or having gifts ready for anytime during the year.
