Winter Skincare Routine: Should You Change Your Skincare Routine For The Colder Months?

As the temperatures continue to drop, you’ve probably noticed a change in your skin. The frigid weather, dry winds, and regular exposure to indoor heating all work together to suck the moisture out of your skin, leaving behind a parched and often more irritable complexion. 

If climate shifts are triggering a (not so welcome) change in your skin, it’s time to adapt your routine. We’re diving into our top four winter skincare tips to help you maintain a healthy and comfortable complexion as we transition into colder weather. 

Transition Into Colder Months For Your Skin

Good news: you don’t have to completely overhaul your skincare routine once the weather gets cooler. However, there are a few easy steps and changes you can implement to ensure your skin is getting the support it needs as it's exposed to the harsh, drying elements of winter. 

1. Hydrate

Hydration is always essential, but it becomes even more vital once the weather cools down! Hydrate your skin from within to fight the drying effects of winter by drinking an ample amount of water every day (heads up: Mayo Clinic recommends 3.7 liters a day for men and 2.7 liters a day for women!). 

If you find yourself getting bored with plain old water, have a few different herbal teas on hand to boost your fluid intake. Herbal tea not only tastes delicious, but can also help keep you warm in the frigid winter weather. It’s a win-win!

2. Prepare Your Home

One of the best things you can easily do at home to give your skin the moisture it needs is break out the humidifier. This isespeciallytrue if you’re constantly running the heater. As important as it is to stay warm and cozy, our heating systems also reduce humidity in the home. This can be a major burden on our skin, which is already feeling the negative effects of the cooler temperatures. 

Add humidity back to the air by running a humidifier while you’re home. At the very least, you’ll want to have it running while you sleep, when your skin switches to recovery mode. 

Small Batch Serums

3. Apply Serums

The fall and winter is the best time to add a hydrating serum to your routine. A well-formulated serum will give your complexion that extra boost of moisture it needs to fight that irritating dryness. 

If you’re looking for the perfect hydrating formula, ourHyaluronic Pure Boost Serum can be your best friend this winter (and beyond!). This lightweight yet deeply hydrating serum (which was made to be safe for all skin types) is powered by hyaluronic acid, one of the most powerful humectants in skincare. This ingredient draws moisture to the skin and locks it in – holding nearly 1000 times its weight in water! With regular use, it will keep your complexion soft, plump, and hydrated all season long. 

4. Keep Moisturized

If your skin is feeling parched, it’s probably time to switch up your moisturizer. Lightweight lotions and gels are great for summer, when there’s already plenty of natural humidity in the air. However, these formulas typically don’t cut it in the winter. Swap out your lightweight moisturizer for a heavier cream with ingredients like shea or cocoa butter, ceramides, oils, squalane, and colloidal oatmeal. Have acne-prone skin? Make sure you look for a non-comedogenic formula!

By the way – don’t forget your body! You’ll want to keep your skin moisturized from head-to-toe to counteract the harsh effects of winter. To really seal in moisture, apply your body lotion when you get out of the shower, when your skin is still damp.
