Nourishing Winter Skincare Routine

As the seasons change and the weather cools down, you’re probably transitioning in a few different areas of your life: You’ve switched out your summer closet for more cozy sweaters, and you’re prepping for snow-filled vacations and nights by the fireplace. So why not transition your skincare routine to match the season? The best skincare routine is one that helps you adapt to the changes in the weather, so we’re here to help you set yours up for the chilly months ahead. 

The main category of products you want to add to your winter skincare routine focus on hydration.Cold temperatures tend to bring drier air that sucks the moisture out of your skin, so you need products that will not only attract moisture, but will also help retain it. That’s where Dream Oasis, Jet Lag Mask, and Heavenly 16 come in.

Follow up with a thick layer of moisturizer. As you probably know by now, Jet Lag Mask is our favorite deep hydrator because it provides all the benefits of a mask, even when it’s used in a thinner layer as a moisturizer. Niacinamide (a.k.a. vitamin B3) helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores, brighten skin, and even its tone and texture. Like Dream Oasis, Jet Lag also contains Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin to both attract and retain moisture to give your skin a plump and youthful glow. Put these all together with our Skin-Soothing Blend which includes Allantoin, Bisabolol, Panthenol, and Cucumber Extract to soothe stressed skin and simultaneously pump it full of hydration.

After cleansing, we recommend Dream Oasis Deep Hydration Serum. Don’t let its lightweight texture fool you — this serum packs a seriously hydrating punch. It has a jelly-like consistency that is compatible with every skin type and delivers a dewy finish that your skin will drink up. Squalane acts as a moisture barrier for the skin, while powerful humectants like Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid work to attract and retain moisture as well as provide protection from environmental stressors like pollution and dry air. This powerful serum is finished off with a skin-calming blend of Colloidal Oatmeal, Aloe, Arnica, and Tiger Grass to help soothe any irritation and diminish the appearance of redness in the skin (perfect for when the cold gives you a little flush).

Pro tip: want to keep your summer glow year-round? Layer on 1-2 pumps of CC Me Vitamin C + Niacinamide Serum after Dream Oasis!

While you might not be a year-round face oil user, winter is the perfect time to incorporate Heavenly 16 All-In-One Face Oil into your routine. You can use it as a spot treatment on particularly dry and flaky areas or all over your face to really seal in the hydrating benefits of your other products. Heavenly 16 is filled with a restorative blend of 16 non-comedogenic, vegan oils to deeply condition, plump, and boost your skin's elasticity. Non-comedogenic products contain ingredients that won't clog or block the pores on your skin. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants to deliver an instant infusion of moisture and radiance for healthy-looking, glowing skin. If the cold has your skin feeling a little taut or puffy, you can encourage lymphatic drainage with a quick gua sha massage on top of the oil. 

Now you’re fully prepared to enter the cold months ahead with the best skincare routine for hydrating your skin.
