Just when you think you have your skincare routine under control… winter arrives. Suddenly you’re cold, the air is dry, the indoor heating is on full blast, and your skin starts to rebel. Before you panic-purchase every moisturizer on the shelf that claims it will “save your winter skin”, remember, this year is different; this year you have us! Our Wonder Skin Therapists are here to help you keep your skin in check while navigating the cold, dark days ahead. No matter your winter woe—dry skin, rosacea, acne—we’ve got you covered.
If you have dry skin…
… try SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream.
This ultra rich moisturizer from SkinMedica should be in everyone’s winter arsenal. Appropriate for normal to dry skin, it provides intense hydration while preventing moisture loss (get yourself a cream that can do both, am I right?). If the cold winter air is causing dryness and flaking, swap your regular moisturizer for this one and watch as your skin becomes smooth and beautiful.
If you suffer from rosacea…
… try Colorescience All Calm Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50.
For some, harsh winter weather can trigger rosacea symptoms. If that’s the case for you, try incorporating Colorescience All Calm Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50. This product should be in every rosacea sufferer’s arsenal, year-round, but we especially love it for winter since it provides SPF 50 protection, which is often forgotten (but so so important) in the colder months. The 3-in-1 proprietary formula works to instantly neutralize the appearance of redness and provide ongoing relief from sensitivity.
If you’re struggling with acne….
… try SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense.
Because cold air holds less moisture, our oil glands begin to overproduce sebum in an effort to hydrate the skin, which can result in clogged pores and acne breakouts. If this sounds like what you’re experiencing, we love SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense. A double-whammy for addressing acne and fine lines and wrinkles, this product is one of our faves. Using a wonder(ful) combination of active ingredients including salicylic acid, glycolic acid, citric acid, dioic acid and lipohydroxy acid, it helps reduce excess oil production and acne formation, without further drying your skin.
If you’re looking to treat your winter skin…
… try Vivier Ultra Hydrating Mask.
If you’re looking to do a little self-care on a cold winter night, we love this luxurious mask from our Canadian friends at Vivier. This product helps rehydrate the skin while helping to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and it’s ideal for all skin types!
