"Putting your best face forward."

IT’S THE GREATEST TIME OF YEAR

But that you already knew.

It’s also the time of year for the ultimate skincare regimen switch-up – swap out the lighter for the richer, thicker, creamier to beat the cold and dry. This year, you won’t suffer through any of it: you’re one step ahead.

CLEANSER. Take half a step back with a milder cleanser as to not irritate delicate, winter skin. For example: are you usually an Enzyme Cleansing Gel user? Try our Seaweed Cleansing Soap come the wintry months. Orange Cleansing Soap lover? Try a milder cream cleanser instead.

TONER. As with your usual cleanser, reach for something a bit milder. Perhaps set aside your current one, and instead, reach for one with either a lesser alcohol content, or one that is simply alcohol-free. Doing so will still get you the clean feeling you love.

EYE CREAM. Do step it up; our Hyaluronic Eye Cream is probably the best stepping point for those who haven’t previously used an eye cream, or just used the Ceramide Eye Gel. From there, we have a healthy assortment of eye creams ranging from the nourishing to super rich.

MOISTURIZER. It’s crucial to swap up for one that can properly hydrate, nourish and help your skin retain it’s natural moisture come colder weather. We have a vast selection where you’re bound to find one that’s perfect for your skin – it’s just a matter of finding what works best for you! But if you need a few ideas, our most-loved with a smidgen more hydration than your beloved Oil-Free include the Buttermilk Moisturizer, Collagen Moisturizer with SPF 15, Honey Moisturizer, Hyaluronic Moisturizer with SPF 15, and the Moisture Magnet with Pentavitin SPF 15.

PROTECTIVE CREAMS. While it’s not a must (depending on your skin typ), it’s something to look into: protective creams shield the skin from harsh, cold weather. Because of its richer, thicker formula and decreased water content, it won’t freeze on the skin when exposed to the elements. Such extreme externalities can and will take their toll on delicate skin, causing irritation, redness and dehydration. If you feel your daily moisturizer isn’t enough, reach for one of our protective creams for more intense protection against the cold.

BODY LOTION. It deserves just as much attention and care as your face – skin is more prone to being dry, patchy or cracked, so opt for something far richer and luxe in formulation. Our Walnut Body Lotion helps moisturize dry, rough skin without leaving that unwanted greasy film and helps keep moisture levels at a maximum all day and night. If you want something a bit more luxurious (and sweet!), try our Apricot Super Rich Body Lotion.
