The SPA @ nuBest’s 5 Tips for Winter-Proof Skin– Season’s blustery winds and chilly climes can cause plenty- of damage, and our skin which typically becomes dry, irritated, and sallow this time of year shouldn’t be a face-forward sore-spot- Luckily, the SPA @ nuBest salon and spa in Manhasset, NY carries the award-winning (and celebrity-favored) Sonya Dakar skincare line, which specializes in remedying the troubles associated with seasonally-challenged skin. Here are some helpful tips for solving some of winter’s most perplexing complexion problems:

Avoid chemicals: choose products that are sulfate and paraben free. These chemicals can cause skin sensitivity, adding to the drying effects of a New York winter.

Apply a light oil to your face after washing to moisturize without breaking out: Just like we fight fire with fire, we can fight oil with oil. Using a light, natural oil, like extra virgin olive oil, can actually balance skin’s oil production and moisturize without causing breakouts. In fact, it can even curb breakouts caused by overproduction of oil on the skin. The Omega-3 Repair Complex from the Sonya Dakar skincare line regulates the skin’s oil production to restore natural moisture levels; it is a beauty essential used by a multitude of celebrities, including Fergie.

Choose a heavier moisturizer: Ceremides and Shea Butter are great ingredients to look for in a winter moisturizer. For a serious winter dry skin buster that’s heavy on moisture but light on the skin, try Sonya Dakar’s Hydrasoft Cream, which NFL star Tom Brady swears by, thanks to his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen.

Don’t be afraid to exfoliate: Sonya Dakar’s Triple Action Organic Scrub is an excellent option, as it gently polishes skin without irritating (Britney Spears is a fan). Sloughing makes the skin brighter and smoother.
