Winter is coming! While Arizona winters aren't as cold as other parts of the country, ours is a dry, desert winter that is harsh,dry and unfriendly. Colder temperatures can contribute to the drying and aging of the nail, cuticle, skin, and your hands and feet.

Here are 5 tips from the hand and foot-care experts at PROSE that will ensure your hands and feet feel loved and look their very best through the winter!

●    Tip 1: Make healthy manicures and pedicures a part of your lifestyle.
To keep your hands and feet pampered, moisturized and happy through the dry, winter months, schedule your manicures and pedicures every two weeks.  At PROSE, we ensure all our manicures and pedicures and products used are non-toxic, which helps to ensure a healthier, lasting result that looks beautiful. To ensure a clean, hygenic, germ-free environment and experience, our tools undergo a state-of-the-art sterilization process ensuring everything is free of any harmful bacteria so your hands and feet will be free of them, too!

●    Tip 2: Keep your hands and feet moisturized morning and night
Use moisture-rich oils and lotions every day, twice a day, on your hands and feet. Use these nutrient-rich products after you shower in the morning and before you go to sleep at night so that you don't wash off the product!

Look for lotions featuring ingredients such as Emu Oil, Vitamin E, Wild Rose, and White Water Lily which together, provide hydrating, healing, nourishing, and anti-aging benefits to both your hands and your feet.

We're tough on our feet especially in the winter. That's why at PROSE, we love Margaret Dabbs' award-winning Intensive Hydrating Foot Lotion ($44) which immediately absorbs to soften skin and calluses. If you are an active athlete and have fungal concerns (which is totally normal!) this product is right for you, as it's also an anti-fungal treatment. If you want to give your hands an extra treat too, pair this product with the Intensive Hydrating Hand Lotion ($44) and both your hands and feet will feel nourished and loved every day.

●    Tip 3: Maintain your hands and feet between pedicures and manicures to ensure lasting results

Making cuticle care a part of your lifestyle between mani and pedi services is a must. It allows for longer wear of your favorite colors  and maintains a healthier, stronger and resilient nail and cuticle.

Our favorite high-performance product for cuticle care is Deborah Lippmann's It's A Miracle Cuticle Oil ($20) This product is a beautiful blend of 10 luxurious oils including Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Evening Primrose, and Pot Marigold extract designed to deeply penetrate, soothing and nourishing the skin and cuticles to protect it from the harsh, dry environment.

 It's A Miracle Cuticle Oil can also be used on cracked heels and elbows for instant hydration!

●    Tip 4: Don't forget to exfoliate!
Just like your face and body, your hands and feet need exfoliation to brighten your skin by removing dead skin cells. Exfoliating first will help the active ingredients in your moisturizer to penetrate the skin deeper allowing for brighter, smoother-looking hands and feet.

TIP FROM THE PROSE EXPERTS: When exfoliating, be sure to focus on the soles of your feet and in-between the toes.

We love results we see from Margaret Dabbs' Exfoliating Foot Mousse ($36) Not only is it very effective, but is has a luxurious, creamy texture, too! For best results, use twice a week!

For your hands, use the Exfoliating Hand Scrub ($32) a gentle exfoliator, perfect for your hands, that melts into the skin to cleanse and remove dead surface cells for a brighter, smoother appearance.

●    Tip 5: Give your hands and feet some holiday attitude and shine
 Get your hands and feet into the holiday spirit with some shine at PROSE! This season, we're getting our guests holiday-ready with complementary glitter top coats* in three fabulous glitter shades!
