Winter is a rough time for skin The air is dry, making our skin less hydrated and glowy than it was in the summer. Here are our favorite products and best tips to keep your skin in tip-top shape all season.
1. Switch to a more gentle, creamy cleanser
Using a milk cleanser will add extra moisture instead of stripping it away. We love CIRCCELL Skincare's Mandarin Cleansing Milk,
with calming ingredients like aloe vera and brightening ingredients such as licorice root, vitamin C and panthenol.
2. Exfoliate for a healthy glow
Exfoliation combats dullness by removing dead skin cells, and helps your serums and moisturizers absorb better. Previse SkinCare's Marine Granules Exfoliating Mousse
blends fossilized algae with jojoba and botanical extracts to gently buff the skin for a smooth and glowy complexion.
3. Use a nourishing serum
Locking in moisture is just as key as adding more-hydrating formulas. We recommend Balanced Guru's Nourish Me Facial Serum
that uses natural ingredients like evening primrose oil, jojoba oil, argan oil and rosehip oil to moisturize your skin without clogging your pores.
4. Relieve redness
To combat cold air, we love Amalie's CALM Organic Soothing Oil
. It's an anti-inflammatory, calming oil that reduces redness and irritation.
5. Apply heavier face creams
Switch to an ultra-rich moisturizing cream for the season, like the luxurious Face Cream by OY-L
. It's blended with an impressive lineup of nourishing natural ingredients to replenish the skin. Its soft and creamy whipped texture feels dreamy as it instantly smooths the skin. The lightweight golden cream immediately seeps into the skin, leaving behind a flattering glowy sheen that feels as good as it looks.
6. Don't forget SPF
You can still get sun damage in the winter. Bella Schneider Beauty's BB Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 35
does it all: hydrates, protects and conceals the skin.
7. Use a hydrating mask
Sheet masks are a great way to give your skin a hydration boost. Musely's For Glow-Getters Hydrogel Face Masks
is a no-fuss hydrogel sheet mask that's like a tall glass of water for your tired, dehydrated skin. It's made of a thin, gel material designed to wear overnight so all you have to do is glop it on, get your beauty sleep, and let the mask work its magic on your skin.
8. Bonus: Treat the skin on your body, too
It's not only your face that needs extra care in the wintertime. Good Earth Beauty's Cranberry Fig Body Cream
is a lush, thick and whipped body cream chock full of skin loving vitamins and nutrients. Its fluffy texture and revitalizing ingredients will keep your body soft and hydrated all winter long.
