We all know how walking is great for our mental and physical health and Winter walks are no exception. But when the weather turns cooler, it’s essential to look after your skin and hair, so here’s our top tips for maintaining beautiful hair and skin ready to emerge into Spring in the best condition.
Plus head to the bottom of the page for a dive into the art of Winter styling from our friends at Young Ideas.
Tip 1: SKINCARE: Serum, serum, serum
Serum is your No. 1 friend during these cold winter days.
The thin nature of this miracle substance, packed with active ingredients like vitamins and antioxidants means you shouldn’t even think about leaving the house without this applied to your skin. Use before moisturiser and the super-absorbent molecules will quickly penetrate your skin in a way that provides an extra barrier against the elements.
Tip 2: HAIRCARE: Regular hair appointments
Split ends love colder weather or at least it seems that way! They’re certainly made worse by harsher weather and any hair treatments you opt for are less effective. Keeping your hair in optimum condition with a regular hair cut means your treatments are focused on the healthy hair and you are much more likely to see the wonderful benefits of shiny, glossy hair.

Tip 3: HAIRCARE & SKINCARE: Be proactive
Conditioning treatments work. High quality moisturisers work. Fact!
But they’re also time sensitive. Act too late and it’s harder to reestablish the moisture you’ve already lost. The secret is to be proactive and super-boost your hair and skin before the cold weather starts to leach the moisture from it.
At Obsession Salon & Spa, Lichfield we’re proud to use (and sell for your home-use) luxury Kerastase products which are renowned for their sublime ingredients. And we especially love the oh-so-gorgeous Luxury Kerastase Treatment Ritual which combines our renowned Obsession signature head massage with a Kerastase Fusio Dose (which if you haven’t heard is the ultimate celebrity go-to treatment). In fact if you’re looking for a luxury stocking filler, the Kerastase Treatment Ritual ticks all the boxes! Freshly mixed for every guest based on individual hair needs (there’s 30 different combos which can be prescribed 😮), the Kerastase Treatment Ritual instantly nurses hair back to health and it’s recommended to have every couple of months throughout the winter.
Facials are equally important at this time of the year and dry winter skin is no joke. If you’re unsure about which type of facial to book, give us a call or pop in to see one of our Therapists who’ll be happy to advise. We offer a range of Decleor Aromatherapy Facials which are packed with vitamins and antioxidants – perfect for soothing, softening and hydrating tired skin.
❤ Super tip: Save £’s by purchasing a hair or beauty course – you’ll receive 6 treatments for the price of 5! Our Hair & Beauty Courses are a package of 6 appointments which can be used at any point over a twelve month period in our Lichfield Salon & Spa. But the best is you only pay for 5, as we will offer you a complimentary treatment as a token of our appreciation!
Call 01543 254137 to purchase.
We hope these three simple (but essential) tips help you to enjoy spending time outdoors this Winter without your hair and skin being compromised.
