Protect Hands & Feet During the Cold Winter Months

Sometimes we forget that winter means our skin needs extra love and while we may occasionally get a mani and pedi, sometimes it's just not enough. Skyy Hadley, celebrity manicurist and owner of As “U” Wish Nail Spa, Hoboken’s #1 spa boutique, pampers her clients with her signature Milk-Me-Away warm milk manicures and pedicures during cold winter months. The warm milk soak is a great way to re-moisturize your hands and feet during these uber skin-drying months and the sugar scrub that follows is a great way to remove extra dead skin. The milk soak and scrub is followed by a sweet almond shea butter lotion that is deeply massaged into the skin to lock in moisture.

Want to create your own moisturizing milk bath at home? Mix a few cups of warm whole milk in a bowl with vanilla essential oil followed by an exfoliating scrub to remove the dead skin and apply a shea butter lotion or cream to lock in moisture. Try the all purpose Shea Butter exfoliating sugar scrub, Coochie Kuchee Coo ($28.00 at

Hands get most of the cold weather abuse, here are some ways to protect your hands. Besides always wearing gloves and avoiding excess hand washing to limit exposure to bitter cold temperatures and gusty winds that can cause your cuticles to become severely dry and ragged and even rip, you can grab the new Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab. It is an instant soothing gel treatment that hydrates, shields and helps restore your cuticles. ($7.49 at drugstores nationwide)
