Winter Skincare Tips for Dry Skin

As the temperatures continue to drop, it’s crucial to give your skin the extra care and attention it deserves. The cold weather can be harsh, leaving your skin dry, dull, and in need of some extra TLC. Let’s dive into our essential winter skincare tips to keep your skin glowing and healthy throughout the frosty season.

1. Switch to a Richer Moisturizer: Update your skincare routine by swapping your lightweight moisturizer for a richer, more emollient formula. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and glycerin to lock in moisture and provide a protective barrier against the elements. Our faves include the Vita E Cream, Restorative Cream, and Power Lift.

2. Don’t Forget the SPF: Sunscreen isn’t just for summer. The sun can still cause damage to your skin 365 days a year. Opt for a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30 and apply it daily, especially on exposed areas like your face, neck, and hands. We can’t get enough of the Oil Free SPF 40+!

3. Gentle Cleansing is Crucial: Harsh cleansers can exacerbate winter dryness. Choose a gentle, hydrating cleanser that effectively removes impurities without stripping away natural oils. Consider incorporating oil-based cleansers to nourish and cleanse simultaneously, such as the MakeUp Cleansing Oil or MakeUp Melt.

4. Exfoliate Wisely: Regular exfoliation is essential to slough off dead skin cells and promote cell turnover. However, be mindful not to over-exfoliate, as this can lead to increased sensitivity. Use a mild exfoliant once or twice a week to maintain a healthy and radiant complexion. Add in the Lemon Cream Scrub 1-2x a week into your regimen.

5. Protect Your Lips: Cold winds can leave your lips chapped and dry. Keep a nourishing lip balm on hand and reapply as needed throughout the day. Ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, and vitamin E can work wonders in keeping your lips soft and supple. We love Barrier Balm for this reason: it’s a multi purpose balm for your face and body too!

6. Invest in Humidifiers: Indoor heating systems tend to dry out the air, contributing to skin dehydration. Place humidifiers in key areas of your home to add moisture to the air. This not only benefits your skin but also helps prevent issues like dry eyes and respiratory problems.

7. Treat Your Skin to a Weekly Mask: Consider incorporating a hydrating or soothing mask into your weekly routine. Ingredients like aloe vera, honey, and oatmeal can provide a much-needed boost of nourishment and hydration. If you’re a fan of oatmeal and clay based masks, we love Kalima! But, be sure in the winter months to not over do a clay mask. Remember there is less moisture in the air so this might feel a little more drying than it would other times of the year. Always hydrate and moisturize your skin after!
