Dyanna Spa in Manhattan, New York Offers Winter Beauty Survival Guide

Manhattan’s Dyanna Spa Beauty Survival Guide for fall and winter is just the thing you need to get rid of the holiday and winter blues. Studies have shown that cold weather, N.Y.C. traffic, and big city shopping crowds, causes people to get stressed out, de-energized, and depressed.

With all the holiday parties, there is also a tendency to imbibe in alcohol and eat more than usual. Morale and skin can both take a beating.

Dyanna Spa and Nail Salon’s Winter Beauty Survival Guide

There are things you can do to ensure that you and your skin survive the holiday season intact.

  1. Be aware of how much you are eating and drinking. No one wants to be a party pooper, but just pull back a bit. It never feels good to wake up the next morning after overdoing it.
  2. Take a nice warm shower in the mornings. Make sure not to make the water too hot or else the water will dry out your skin instead of hydrating it.
  3. Make sure to use a good hair conditioner because cold weather can dry out your hair and scalp.
  4. Immediately after drying off from your shower, apply moisturizer to your face and body (preferably one with SPF30) while the pores of your skin are still open. This allows the moisturizer to penetrate much more deeply into your skin.
  5. Limit the use of a hair dryer as it will dry your hair out even more than the cold weather will.
  6. Don’t forget your lips. Chapped lips hurt and are not exactly attractive. Moisturize with a lip balm that contains jojoba oil or other moisturizing oils as part of your morning regimen. Use your lip balm throughout the day and be sure to apply it before you go out into the cold.
  7. Exfoliate your face and body at least two times a week to get rid of all the dead skin cells. This will allow the skin to absorb your moisturizer more efficiently.
  8. Avoid rough red hands and protect them from the cold by frequently using a good hand moisturizer throughout the day and wearing mittens or gloves outdoors.
  9. Before bedtime, and after bathing or just washing your face, be sure to moisturize again.
  10. Get plenty of restful sleep. With a rested mind and body, you’ll be ready to conquer the world (or at least New York City).

Mid-Winter Massage Therapy,the Key to Health & Happiness in the New Year!

In the thick of an unpredictable winter, near frigid zero temperatures one day and a comfortable mid-40s the next, there remains the reliable element of muscle fatigue and soreness. With the encroachment of the cold that sweeps over NYC from December into January, like an icy wave onto the streets, it becomes our duty to take care of our health to ensure our happiness in a time of colds, coughs and flu-like chaos!

There are various studies in the medical field that are dedicated to finding a natural remedy to these seasonal ailments. Health O Style online magazine, by Ayushveda, reminds us that fatigue is not to be feared, however it requires appropriate treatment.

It is nothing to be afraid of. But, it is a time when the endocrine system, together with the organs that compose it, are unable to keep up with the change in the environment and therefore, they start showing signs of fatigue…The stress of daily life can take its toll on your body; therefore it is advisable that you relax yourself… However, a vacation to a warm climate region will not be much help, because it is not just a change of scenery and climate that you actually need.

This is key, seeking an appropriate treatment for your wintertime muscle aches. According to, a research site looking into the benefits of massage therapy, there have been numerous studies conducted analyzing the massage treatments over a period of time.

Lower Back Pain The Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami studied the effect of massage over a 5-week period on 24 randomized chronic low back pain sufferers. After receiving two 30-minute treatments per week for the duration of the study, the massage group reported less pain, depression, anxiety, and improved sleep.

Chronic Pain– The University of Warwick in England studied the short-term effects of massage on chronic pain. 101 patients were randomly divided, half of whom received 15 minutes of massage, while the other half discussed their pain. One hour after treatment, the massage group showed significantly less pain and anxiety.”
