With winter comes dropping temperatures and dry air, which can affect your skin, hair, and body health! Our experts at the Spa at Sanderling share the best products and tips for this season. Rejuvenate and refresh your body and skin- you deserve it!


The first tip shared from our Spa Manager, Crystal Swain is to drink water! As the air grows dryer from indoor heating, the water from our skin’s surface evaporates. This can leave our skin looking dehydrated and may exaggerate any textural inconsistencies.

To maintain healthy skin, you need to invest in a quality cleanser and moisturizer. For the wintertime, it’s important to focus on a cleanser that does not strip the skin of its natural oils. Our Spa experts recommend beginning your routine with Naturopathica’s Manuka Honey Cleanser. Protecting against environmental pollution and inflammation, this cleanser uses Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly Peptides to nourish and reinforce the skin’s natural barrier.


For the next step in your routine, a toner and serum treatment is recommended. Babor’s Rose Toner will balance your skin’s pH and refresh and relax your skin. Afterwards, add Naturopathica’s Alpine Rose Recovery Concentrate to treat your skin. This product contains a combination of Alpine Rose Cells and Helichrysum to promote your skin’s vitality.

“Products containing rose derivatives are high in Vitamin C, which stimulates collagen, and Vitamin E, which is soothing and moisturizing” -Crystal Swain, Spa at Sanderling Manager

Your final step in your skin-care routine this winter should be moisturizer. Our Spa Manager prescribes a more emollient, vitamin filled moisturizer, Naturopathica’s Calendula Essential Hydrating Cream. Pairing the anti-inflammatory Calendula Extract and Borage Seed Oil, this product works to soothe and soften dry, sensitive skin.

Resist any products with clay, as it can sometimes be drying! Remember that your make-up may influence how much moisture your skin retains as well.

Pro tip: Use a foundation or BB cream that contains Hyaluronic Acid, as this will draw moisture from the air to your skin to give you a more youthful hydrated glow!
