Love the skin you’re in
By now our bodies (and spirits) are pretty winter-worn. Give yourself a head-to-toe boost with luxuriant products to soften, strengthen and soothe dried-out skin and hair.

Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Honey Bath
Caramel. French vanilla. Spun sugar. The fragrant notes in this bath soak are reminiscent of a patisserie. Shea butter, oat protein and vitamin B5 join forces to cleanse and soften. It can be used as creamy body wash in the shower, too. $55, lauramercier.com
Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen Hand Cream
Refresh and restore your hard-working hands. This potent potion deep moisturizes — and brightens skin tone with antioxidants — yet leaves behind a dry, silky feel. $38, Sephora and algenist.com

Pucker up, buttercup. This cruelty-free, all natural scrub buffs away flakes with jojoba oil and castor sugar. Flavors include cherry, bubblegum and mint juleps. $10.95-$12.95, Lush stores in Roosevelt Field, Walt Whitman and Smith Haven malls, and lushusa.com
Bellami X Zach Mesquit Hair Serum
Winter winds and dry indoor air take a toll on our hair, too. This lightweight serum soaks into strands to moisturize and bring back their shine. Aside from leaving your dry locks soft and frizz-free, it also helps prevent color oxidation and hot-tool damage. $29.99, bellamihair.com

Treat yourself to indulgent tub time with this luxe product from British fragrance goddess Jo Malone. Pour a little under warm running water, then settle in for a skin-softening soak. It gently cleanses skin as well. $75, joloves.com/us
