Top Barber Treatments to Combat Winter Skin

Stay Smooth This Winter with Our Recommended Barber Services

The onset of winter brings a host of exciting, sensual delights: delicious holiday cuisine, time spent with loved ones, and twinkling holiday decor. It also means battling icy winds and suffering through bouts of dry skin.

Warm-weather skincare routines will need to be adjusted to make up for the dry air conditions that sap moisture from the skin. Barber Phil Dusold of The Rittenhouse Spa and Club – Hair by Paul Labrecque recommends indulging in select spa treatments to combat dry skin while feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Here are Phil’s favorites:

Best Barber Treatments for Winter

Hot Towel Shave
“Performed after a general trim and shaping, a Hot Towel Shave is a superior way of grooming your facial hair. This treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth and your stubble at bay for days. You’ll never feel more refreshed or relaxed after grooming your beard any other way.” 

Face Masks
“A face mask is an add-on or stand-alone service that leaves your skin feeling rehydrated, radiant, and evenly-toned. As an add-on to the Hot Towel Shave, a face mask provides the closest and smoothest shave and glowing skin. While the mask sets into the surface of your skin, it’s the perfect time to sip some whiskey; an amenity that comes complimentary with our elevated services.”

Hot Lemongrass Oil Treatment
“Another solution that’s perfect as an add-on or stand-alone service, the Hot Lemongrass Oil Treatment is a rejuvenating remedy for a dry and itchy beard. Dry skin combined with itchiness is the most common problem facing a man trying to grow out his beard. Look no further than this luxe remedy to find the relief you are looking for.”
