5 Winter Splurges to Save Your Sanity

February 22, 2013 5:30 pm

For many people, the two or three months after Christmas usher in familiar doldrums: a shortage of cash, dry skin, and gaps in the social calendar.

“It’s a time,” noted aesthetician Amy Weiss, “to pamper yourself with small treats that nourish your body and lift your spirits.”

Weiss, who writes columns on living better for less, offers five suggestions for treating yourself this winter without breaking the bank:

  • A massage and/or facial – In most areas, you can get a professional massage or facial for under $100 that will leave you feeling relaxed and glowing. But if that’s too steep, pair with a friend, make a trip to the local beauty supply shop, and trade an evening of facials.
  • Antioxidant treatment – Keep dry skin at bay all winter with a luxurious body cream that has a base of green tea or caffeine – such as Topix Replenix. It will do away with flaky skin and keep skin moisturized longer and that’s enough to bring a smile to your face.
  • A new hairstyle – Winter is the perfect time to opt for a new cut and style or add highlights to dull, cold-weather hair. If you’re not sure where to go, ask for a reference from a friend whose hairstyle you admire.
  • A sweet indulgence – Nothing in your long-range healthy eating plan will be harmed by a once-in-a-while indulgence. A long winter day can brighten considerably if you treat yourself after dinner to the sweet of your choice – even a mini-treat, like one scoop of artisan ice cream or a single, fudgy brownie.
  • A night away from home – If you can’t afford a Caribbean vacation, think about splurging on one night or a weekend at a local luxury hotel. Treat yourself to breakfast in bed, a sauna if available, or an afternoon at the indoor pool.
