Winter is just around the corner, and we can already feel the cooler weather setting in. With all the fun winter brings, it also brings dry air and cold weather that can wreak havoc on our skin and cause it’s own set of skin care problems. If your normally well-behaved complexion has been showing signs of distress—like dullness, dryness, irritation, and more—it may be a sign that your winter skincare routine needs a refresh. Skin loses a lot of moisture when the air is less humid, such as during the transition from summer to fall. This can cause your skin to feel drier than usual. Swapping your usual lighter moisturizers for richer formulas, going easy on exfoliation, and using a calming cleanser are just a few ways to prep your skin to handle the season’s harsher weather.
If you’re looking to keep your skin comfy and hydrated all winter long, read on for our pro winter skincare tips and the best skincare products to help.
1. Exfoliation is key
It may be tempting to skip exfoliators when your skin’s feeling sensitive from exposure to dry, cold air. But exfoliating ensures you're clearing away any dead skin cells that can flake off and cause dry skin. Plus, they help your moisturizer and skincare really soak in. The key is to use a more gentle formula than you would in the summer, and exfoliate less often. We love using scrubs with gentle exfoliating ingredients like a sweet sugar face scrub infused with nourishing oils.
Our Pick: Heal Brown Sugar Scrub
A nourishing and exfoliating sweet sugar face scrub infused with broad-spectrum CBD, turmeric, chia seed, and honey that refines, buffs, and hydrates. It helps remove dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and soothe irritated, sensitive skin. Great for eczema-prone skin, to calm the itchiness and raw irritated skin. It provides a natural glow and hydration sealant. Contains 1000mg of CBD.
2. Use a hydrating balm
As great as a good blackhead or breakout-busting mask can be, some of these formulas can be too harsh and drying in the winter months. Opt for a hydrating cream or sheet mask instead. Look for balms with moisturizing emollients alongside more active hydrating ingredients like shea butter.
Our Pick: Topical Serenity Relief Balm
Made from all-natural ingredients grown on North Carolina farms without chemicals or solvents, this soothing balm keeps skin hydrated while relieving aches and pains. Rub on the area of pain for relief. Formulated from all-natural ingredients without chemicals or solvents, this rich, soothing, and cooling balm relieves muscle pain. Made with full-spectrum Plant Derivatives oil, it addresses muscle pain, menstrual cramps, and dryness, itching.
3. Try a richer moisturizer
We love the fresh feel of light gel moisturizers during the summer, but winter calls for slightly richer formulas to properly lock in hydration. Look for an intensely hydrating moisturizer in the form of a rich serum, cream, or lotion (especially if you have dry skin, which is even more prone to losing natural oils) made with known hydrating heroes, like hyaluronic acid. A good humectant is hyaluronic acid, which draws water into the skin. These help decrease the loss of moisture into the environment over time.
