The temperatures are dropping outside, rising inside, and your skin is paying the price. Going from freezing cold weather to the warmth of a heated room may feel good, but it is zapping all the moisture from your skin. The result? A tight, red, and dry complexion. What you need is a natural skin care routine built just for the winter time and we happen to have it;). Here are some of our go to’s when the weather turns cold and your skin is in desperate need of extra hydration.
#1 Seriously Soothing Cleansing Cream from ACURE
This is our holy grail cleanser when temps drop. Use it in the morning and at night to cleanse the skin without stripping it of essential oils. It will leave your face clean, calm, and hydrated.
#2 Rose Mist from Kali
Spray this all over the skin after cleansing, but before your next step. This helps the skin absorb serum or moisturizers and adds an extra layer of hydration. Use in the morning and at night after cleansing, and throughout the day to plump skin whenever an extra dose of moisture is needed.
#3 Certified Organic Pure Rosehip Seed Oil from Trilogy
This has powerful fatty acids that boost elasticity and cell renewal, yet it sinks into skin and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy. It’s the perfect layer to help lock in hydration before your moisturizer.
#4 Siren Silk Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme from Earth Harbor
This cream is a new fave and we can’t get enough of it. It manages to be deeply hydrating while still feeling light on the skin due to its amazing whipped texture. It helps form a barrier to keep skin protected from the elements.
#5 Starry Eye Balm from Kopari
This lovely balm hydrates with coconut oil, de-puffs with caffeine, and illuminates with natural minerals. Perfect for keeping the delicate skin around eyes looking it’s best.
#6 Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Sunscreen from Drunk Elephant
Yes, you NEED sunscreen in the winter! This has a very light tint, so it’s perfect for giving skin a slightly blurred effect without a full face of heavy makeup. It also imparts a subtle glow and extra dose of moisture.
#7 Almond & Milk Hand Cream from Burt’s Bees
We slather this stuff on all day long! Hands and nails are one of the first things to dry out and can often be forgotten. Skin is thicker on the hands, so it’s important to get a rich formula like this and apply often.
#8 Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum from Herbivore
For your night time regime, after cleansing and spraying the Rose Mist, apply this little miracle serum. It is gentle and non-irritating while helping to improve skins texture and reduce fine lines.
#9 Superberry Dream Mask from Youth to the People
Next, add a layer of this onto skin. It’s an overnight mask that is essentially a deep moisturizing cream. You wake up with glowing skin that’s plump and hydrated.
