Dry skin, rough patches and chapped hands? Welcome to winter. When temps drop, switching up your routine is the simplest first line of defense. Keep scrolling for solutions to your top cold-weather skincare concerns.
Switch to a Gentle Cleanser
In cooler climates, gentle cleansing is a must to protect your skin’s moisture barrier. As a rule of thumb, if your skin feels tight after cleansing you can bet that your face wash is too harsh for the season. Reach for a calming cleanser with nourishing oils to baby skin. We love skin softening Ocean Cleansing Milk that actually hydrates and soothes with Water Lily and Gigartina Seaweed while also washing away the day.

Exfoliate from Head-to-Toe
If you aren’t already on the exfoliation train, winter is the perfect time to start! During the colder months, dead skin build up can result in a dry, dull complexion. Buff away lackluster skin to reveal your natural glow. Sensitive skintypes can exfoliate up to 2 times a week, while normal, combination and oily skin can exfoliate more often. We are fans of the universal Vitamin C Enzyme Polish. This gentle facial exfoliant with Pomegranate enzymes chemically dissolves dead skin while finely milled Bamboo powders physically polish. Bonus: This powerhouse is chock full of Vitamin C to leave you insanely glowing.
Just like with your face, sloughing away dead skin on your body is key for warding off dryness. Salts of the Earth Body Scrub uses Pink Himalyan Salts to exfoliate and a blend of six nourishing botanical oils to majorly moisturize, leaving behind smooth, baby soft skin.

Hydrate with Hyaluronic Acid
Power up your hydration with a Hyaluronic Acid serum. This genius molecule draws water into skin to plump, hydrate and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our choice? Hyaluronic Sea Serum which combines Hyaluronic Acid with Seaweeds for a burst of minerals and antioxidants to keep you bouncy and glowing for hours. It absorbs super fast so you can layer it with your other favorite serums or use alone under your moisturizer or facial oil.
Clinically proven anti-aging moisture
Swap Your Moisturizer
Central heating coupled with cold outside air can cause havoc on your complexion. Now might be the moment to experiment with using a heavier moisturizer to lock in hydration (i.e. your serums). Advanced Protection Cream features a biomimetic lipid complex, glycerin and shea butter to winter-proof your skin, along with a vegan retinol alternative to smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Our ultra-rich, cushiony cream is clinically proven to instantly increase hydration by 121% and provides unparalleled barrier protection–a dream come true for dry skin.
