Must-Have Ingredients for Your Winter Beauty Routine

UPDATE AS OF 8/30/22: We are currently working on updating our PROSE at Home website. Please check back soon. In the meantime, please visit for further updates.

There’s lots to love about winter: cozy sweaters, cute decorations, good food, and great holidays.

One thing we don’t love? Dry skin and everything that comes with it.

Cold weather wreaks havoc on otherwise healthy skin. Rough palms? Cracked heels? So much for showing off your latest mani-pedi in this year’s family photo. Your hands + feet need healing, and fast.

Skin Poetry to the rescue! Our original skincare collectionhas everything you need to restore your skin’s texture, appearance, and health. Indulge with wholesome, all-natural ingredients designed to moisturize and renew (or give them to a loved one for the perfect holiday gift).

Getting ready for Christmas and NYE selfies has never been easier—or so clean, healthy + beautiful!

How to Use This Guide

Our skin’s needs change with the seasons. What works in summer won’t work in winter, and you should adjust your skincare routine accordingly.

For example, if you live in a place that has humid summers and dry winters (like Florida) you’ll probably need to moisturize more during the colder months. That also means less exfoliation and more fortifications against dehydration.

Below, we’ve outlined some of the best ways to reach your winter skin #goals. We’ve also included some Skin Poetry suggestions to help power up your skincare routine for the holidays.

We want to see your hands + feet thrive, so read on to find out what we think they’ll love this winter…or ask your Nail Artist for a custom recommendation during your next salon visit!


Why does winter cause dry skin? It’s simpler than you think. Less heat means less rain, and less rain means less humidity—all factors that lead to dry skin, especially your hands + feet.

Aloe vera and calendula contain humectants: hygroscopic (or moisture-attracting) substances that help your skin retain essential hydration. Look for products with these ingredients when you’re fighting winter weather dryness.

Our recommendations: Hand Rescue Lotion + Foot Fix Dry Oil.


The weather outside is frightful—especially for your skin! Abrasive winter wind can damage exposed hands + feet. Rough, cracked, or peeling heels and palms are common this time of year.

To improve skin’s texture, turn to formulas that contain shea butter and jojoba oil. These gentle yet powerful ingredients soak deeply into injured skin to heal damage from the inside out.

Our recommendations: Foot Fix Lotion.


Have you fed your hands + feet lately? Just as we eat a variety of healthy foods to nourish our bodies, it’s important to use products that nourish our skin. Skin is an organ, too, after all!

Serve your skin the nutrients it needs this winter: vitamin E, magnesium, and antioxidant-rich green tea are all excellent choices for nourishing your entire body.

Our recommendations: Mineral Wellness Soak + Hand Rescue Lotion.

Have a Clean, Healthy + Beautiful Winter

Keeping your skin healthy and hydrated is easier than it sounds! You don’t need a ton of products—just a few that do double duty to moisturize, soften, and nourish your hands + feet.

PROSE Nails developed Skin Poetry to do just that. Inspired by our Nail Artists and perfected with our clients’ needs in mind, each formula is packed with all-natural ingredients and essential oils that make skincare a breeze.
