WINTER SKINCARE ESSENTIALS

Temps have dropped and your skin has most likely changed as a result. Whether it’s become dry, you’ve developed acne or your skin has become super sensitive, sometimes throwing on any old skincare product won’t be as effective. Here is a guide based on your skin type during the winter to help combat any problems you are having because of the cold to help you achieve soft, supple skin.

DRY:

Bobbi Brown Extra Soothing Balm- During the winter season, a lot of people tend to become dry on their face and on their body. To undo this try a dense concentrated balm like this one for extra hydration. The oils will really go a long way and help soothe your skin.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser- Many cleansers on the market draw away all the needed moisture in your face, but CeraVe’s hydrating cleanser does everything a cleanser should do: remove dirt, germs, excess oils, dead cells, cosmetic residues but does not irritate or take away needed moisture.

MAC Strobe Cream- If you are looking for a quick fix for your dry winter skin, look no further than MAC’s Strobe Cream. It’s loaded with vitamins and green tea, which brightens and freshens dry and tired looking skin.

NORMAL:

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream- If your skin cooperates with you during the winter season and want to keep that moisture, then try a cream like Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. Throughout the day it will replenish the moisture to keep your skin hydrated at all times.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer- For normal skin, it is important to constantly moisturize yet gradually also improve your skin. Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer will keep your skin looking healthy but gradually evens out tone, texture and makes your skin look even more luminous.

Fresh Rose Floral Toner- A light soothing toner will do normal skin wonders during the cold winter months. The infused rosewater will keep your skin calm and keep your skin’s natural moisture.

OILY: 

Éminence Thermal Spring Whip Moisturizer- The thermal spring water in this moisturizer balances the excess oil and calms breakouts. Ideal for winter, it both hydrates and clears your face.

Korres Pomegranate Scrub- It is a misconception that oil is bad for your skin. Used in moderation, oil is necessary to keep your complexion clear and alive. Korres’ Pomegranate Scrub has Greek olive stones that refines pores and removes excess oil. It’s ideal for the winter because it is also very gentle.

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser- The secret to this cleanser is that it includes charcoal extract, which is known to clear excess oil and impurities. The gel heats up when it comes in contact with your skin and dissolves the makeup and oil while still keeping the face hydrated.

AGING:

La Roche-Posay Redermic [R]- This intensive anti-aging corrector is great for many different purposes. With its 0.1% retinol, it visibly reduces wrinkles with no flare up. Although concentrated, this corrector is lightweight, creamy and will leave your skin soft and luminous.

Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream- This cream is luxurious and extremely effective. The antioxidants in the grape seed hydrates, while resveratrol works as an anti-aging ingredient.

Kate Somerville Moisture Milk Cleanser- This cleanser is a bit more on the softer side. This sulfate free cleanser includes natural sugar beet complex for prolonged hydration, and orange blossom and orange peel extracts for luminous skin.

REDNESS:

Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream- Cold weather causes some people’s skin to have a flare up of rosacea. Luckily, there are skin care products with natural ingredients to combat this problem. This cream utilizes rose to nourish the redness and protect the skin. The shea butter also helps to retain moisture, which makes this doubly effective during the winter for reddened skin.

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser- This cleanser will work wonders for any skin type, especially reddened skin. It will calm down the redness and maintain the natural acidity of the skin which will prevent flare-ups and dryness.

Murad Redness Reduction Treatment Mask Salon Size- Specifically designed for redness, this mask aids in minimizing any irritation and redness and also contains goji berry extracts that helps aid dry skin that is common during the winter.

COMBINATION:

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentre- A must in every makeup artist’s kit, this moisturizer should also be a must in everyone’s skin care routine. Although it can work for all skin types, it will be most effective for combination skin. This creamy formula absorbs quickly so the outcome will be hydrated and soft skin.

Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser- This gentle cleanser nourishes every part of your face without dehydrating or depositing grease. The olive polyphenols is therapeutic as it strips away any dirt or grime from your face, while leaving the skin soft and tight.

Yves Rocher Hydrating Day Cream SPF25- Hydration and protection go hand in hand. Although it may not always be sunny out during the winter months it is still important to protect your skin from the sun. This cream hydrates where it needs to hydrate and protects where it needs to protect.

ACNE PRONE:

Yes To Tomatoes Daily Balancing Moisturizer Most acne products tend to dry out the skin, which is exactly what you don’t want during the winter, so it is important to the find skincare products that help acne-prone skin but still hydrate. This moisturizer is the perfect fit. It includes sebum absorbers to clear your existing acne and prevent future breakouts. It also contains many antioxidants that will moisturize your skin.

Juara Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner- A toner is a crucial step in skincare, especially for acne-prone skin, because the leftover makeup residue can trigger the acne. Toners strip down leftover makeup residue to leave you with a clean face. Juara’s toner includes tamarind, a natural ingredient that is often seen in Indonesia. It can be used for its revitalizing properties. The teas in the toner will comfort your skin and leave it radiant.

Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer- This dual moisturizer is great for the wintertime because it cuts out a step. Being an acne solution and a moisturizer in one, it allows for maximum acne fighting strength and leaves your skin soft and smooth. This is great for those who don’t like multi-step routines.
