As we enter the colder months and the frosty winter winds start to blow, it’s time to revamp your skincare flow!
Winter brings about plenty to get excited for, from twinkling lights and warm wool sweaters, to white blankets of snow everywhere you look.
On the other hand, winter also brings about the cold weather with darker days, biting winds, and persistent rain or snow. Cold weather wreaks total havoc on your skin, causing dryness, sensitivity, and inflammation. And by the time you realize it, damage has already been done to your skin’s protective moisture barrier, leaving your skin red, irritated, and even damaged if nothing is done to fix and protect it.
Luckily, we’ve got 5 Steps to Get Winter Skin Savvy for you to help keep your skin plump, radiant, and overall healthy during the winter months - read on to learn more!
STEP #1 - USE A GENTLE CLEANSER
Like we mentioned above, the cold winter weather wreaks havoc on your skin’s protective moisture barrier, leaving it sensitive and susceptible to irritation and redness. This is why it’s important to find a gentle cleanser that will deeply cleanse your pores while, at the same time, replenishing your moisture barrier to prevent and reduce redness.
Our MOISTURIZING WASH is a pH-balanced, sulfate-free, refreshing cleanser, made with natural ingredients such as seaweed, green tea, and chlorophyll. These work together to provide a gentle cleanse for your skin, removing makeup and daily buildup from your pores without stripping your skin.
STEP #2 - DON’T FORGET TO EXFOLIATE
With sensitivity and irritated skin running so rampant thanks to the cold, many people tend to ask us this question:
“Should I exfoliate in the winter?”
ABSOLUTELY! Even in the cold weather, you should be exfoliating your skin 1-3x a week. Though, to protect your skin, you may want to swap from a physical exfoliator to a chemical one that uses natural ingredients to remove dead skin cells.
Our DEEP ENZYME CLEANSE is formulated with naturally sourced glycolic acid to gently “unglue” dead skin cells, while fruit enzymes sourced from pineapple sweep those cells away, promote cellular renewal, and boost collagen production to reveal the youthful, healthy skin underneath.
It even has grapefruit oil (a potent source of Vitamin C) to help with reducing dark spots and redness, very important during the winter!
STEP #3 - REMEMBER YOUR POTENT SERUMS
Another must-have in the winter season is serums. Supercharged serums use active natural ingredients to target specific skin concerns, including dull, damaged, and rough skin.
Quench your skin this winter with our 20% Vitamin C PLUMPING SERUM. This potent serum is loaded with hydrating hyaluronic acid, age-defying Vitamin C, and skin-brightening shiitake mushroom for a powerful boost of radiance that will leave your skin protected, happy, and glowing.
STEP #4 - MOISTURIZE
Now that you’ve cleansed, exfoliated, and treated your skin, it’s time to repair and hydrate with a long-lasting moisturizer that can be applied day and night.
Look no further than THE CREAM, our rich, velvety moisturizer packed with clinically proven ingredients like collagen-boosting CoQ10 and botanical antioxidants like jojoba oil, ylang ylang, and alpha lipoic acid to keep your skin cells active and defend against dull, loose, and sagging skin.
STEP #5 - A HYDRATING BOOST
The perfect way to finish off your skincare routine during the winter months is to give your skin a hydrating boost with a product like a face mist.
Our BLUE TANSY HYDRATING FACE MIST is the perfect boost of hydration to help with keeping your skin safe from the cold (and blue light while indoors!). It’s made with skin calming blue tansy, pore-minimizing niacinamide, super-hydrating hyaluronic acid, and sea algae to help with evening out skin tone.
The fun, cozy holiday festivities of the season aren’t the only things to look forward to during this time of year. With the right skincare routine that follows these 5 steps, you can enjoy healthy, radiant, and happy skin, even at the coldest parts of the year!
