Sweater weather has officially arrived! And just as you cozy up in your favorite cable knits and cardigans, you should also switch to a winter skincare routine.
Cold, dry, blustery winter weather and exposure to indoor heating can accelerate a process known as TEWL, causing too much water to evaporate out of your skin and into the surrounding environment. This is what causes common winter skincare concerns such as dullness, flakiness, and a dry, tight feeling.
Fortunately, a cold weather skincare routine can help replenish hydration and boost skin barrier function to help your skin stay hydrated, healthy, and radiant all winter long. Follow the steps below to winterize your skincare routine for plump, radiant skin all season long.
STEP ONE: USE A NOURISHING CLEANSER
Baby your skin with a moisturizing cleanser such as our Antioxidant Cleansing Oil to avoid over-stripping during drier winter months. This light and silky cleansing oil effortlessly dissolves impurities and makeup while adding a burst of squalane-fueled hydration. Meanwhile, nourishing antioxidants target stress and signs of aging, leaving the skin healthy, radiant, and nourished.
STEP TWO: MOISTURIZE DELICATE UNDEREYE SKIN
The skin around your eye area is thinner than elsewhere on your face, making it more delicate and susceptible to dehydration during cold, dry weather. Our multi-award-winning Marine Algae Eye Cream delivers deep moisture to keep under-eye skin smooth and hydrated all day long. Paracress extract instantly lifts and firms while pink marine algae, a natural source of peptides, plumps fine lines and wrinkles. Our superhero hydrator, squalane, seals in hydration with deep and lasting protective moisture.
STEP THREE: USE A SKIN-QUENCHING SERUM
Drench your skin with hydration while instantly plumping fine lines and wrinkles with our Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum. In this bestselling serum, hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, and ectoin join forces with copper peptides to draw in moisture and flood skin with continuous hydration while encouraging collagen production to boost elasticity and add bounce.
STEP FOUR: BOOST YOUR MOISTURE BARRIER
Top your serum with our Omega Repair Cream to deeply nourish and repair the skin’s protective barrier. Our award-winning moisturizer uses ceramides and omega fatty acids to deliver lasting hydration and strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier, visibly improving fine lines and wrinkles while helping prevent overnight moisture loss.
STEP FIVE: LOCK IN MOISTURE WITH A RADIANCE-BOOSTING FACIAL OIL
Instantly brighten dull winter skin while sealing in your skincare with our cult-favorite Vitamin C Rose Oil. Our science-backed formula features an innovative form of oil-soluble Vitamin C that’s uniquely stable and incredibly gentle. Use it as the final step in your skincare to moisturize and boost radiance while sealing in active ingredients, or add a few drops to makeup for a fresh, dewy look.
