While it may feel like dry skin and cold weather are inevitable, they are not. You need to follow the proper skincare routine to get through the cold months. Here is what to do to have even-toned and clear skin.

Double Cleanse

During winter, it is important to double cleanse to keep your skin hydrated. Choose a non-comedogenic cleanser with the oil you prefer and apply it to your skin at night. I would recommend sunflower, almond, or jojoba oil.

Remember to exfoliate

In cold months, using a cleaner or facial scrub twice a week is essential to soften and make your skin supple. Exfoliating also helps get rid of dead skin and makes your skincare routine much easier.

Invest in a hydrating serum

Serums effectively treat skin conditions and nourish the skin. Choose a serum with hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin and keep it moisturized.


Your skin is the first line of defense against harsh weather conditions, including cold. Use a moisturizer with SPF during cold months since one with UV protection could dehydrate your skin in cold months. 

You can also take care of your skin by ensuring you hydrate. Since the air over winter tends to be dry, you need to take plenty of water to hydrate your skin and keep it supple. If possible, indulge in some dark chocolate with antioxidants that minimize aging signs. Before buying any products to add to your skincare, understand your skin, as each type has unique requirements.
