The trials that Chicago winters impose on hair and skin are as numerous as they are gruesome: chapped lips, dry cheekbones, desiccated elbows, and parched hair are par for the course, and it only gets worse from there. Though we do what we can to combat the cold with serums, water bottles, hand cream, and the like, sometimes only a professional can save our flaky hides. To make it to Spring 2015 with most of your cells intact, try one of these local hydrating treatments.

For a wintry scent and a summery glow: a mint facial at Leah Chavie Salon

Skincare guru Leah Chavie is all about the facial massage. “I use upward motions for everything,” she says. “You can feel your skin tightening and lifting, can’t you?” She’ll customize her mint facial for whatever skin problem you’re having, be it clogged pores or flaky dryness, and you’ll spend the next hour relaxing under heated blankets while she massages your face back to its summery glow. For extra dehydrated skin, spring for Chavie’s stem cell treatment (DNA CryoStem Cell Therapy), which takes effect over the course of six days, resulting in literal rejuvenation, a phrase that—until now—was associated solely with Bahamian beaches.
