Beauty vs. Winter

January 13, 2017 - 2 minutes read

Here’s a fun game – checking what the weather will be like in Boston for the next few months. Any bets? A quick swipe on your smartphone, or more accurate, a quick look outside will tell you what every New Englander already knows: expect highs in the 40s and lows in the 10s (if the wind chill doesn’t pick up). With another few months of such hard weather, it’s crucial that you take the steps to protect your skin and body from the cold. Have no fear, these Boston beauty startups will keep you (guys, we’re looking at you too) on top of your game this season.
