15 Ideas for Winter Family Fun in the Fort

It’s that time of year: the holidays are over, but winter is still upon us, spring and summer are too distant to get excited about just yet. Boredom is constantly lurking, and lazy nights it seems like the only option every weekend.  If only there were another way… Fort Wayne to the rescue!  Despite this annual lull and chilly weather, our city is never short on activities, happenings, and events.  We’ve done the research: check out our top 15 ideas for the whole family on staying busy and entertained this winter.   1.

Winterize Your Skin

Winterize Your Skin

Being a Fort Wayne native, I have braved our eventful winter season for more than 20 years; throughout the years, I’ve actually grown to love many aspects of our wintery weather. In my opinion, few sights are more beautiful and serene than shimmering snowflakes, gently falling from the sky, transforming the landscape into a crisp, white wonderland. Not to mention, the endless hours of fun that can be found in snow tubing down our snow covered, neighborhood hills– it makes me feel 10-years-old again, and it’s a guaranteed good time! Now, as with most things in life, we must take the good with the, well, not so good. For me, the not so good aspect of winter is the havoc it can wreak on your skin! Let’s face it – the cold weather during the winter months is tough on our skin. The chilling wind, heating systems, and low humidity strip the natural moisture from our skin, leaving it rough, red, tightened, peeling, and dehydrated. If you are looking for some relief for your skin this season, Fort Wayne has many top-notch health spas that can help nurse your complexion back to tip-top condition. Generally speaking, you will want to look for hydrating treatments, gentle exfoliation, and repair treatments that work with essential fatty acids, and collagen. It’s also a great idea to consult with an Esthetician to gain a recommendation for your specific skin type. For your skin pampering pleasure, I’ve listed out a few of my favorite local spas. Enjoy the winter weather and remember to protect your skin.   Belle Sante Med Spa 5010 W Jefferson Blvd Fort Wayne, IN (260) 436-6900   Tranquil Touch Spa 5812 Maplecrest Rd Fort Wayne, IN (260) 272-0067   The Woodhouse Day Spa 6388 W Jefferson Blvd Fort Wayne, IN (260) 459-6249   Evolve 4930 Illinois Rd Fort Wayne, IN (260) 436-1717   Cali Spa 1615 W Dupont Rd Fort Wayne, IN (260)...
