Posted on October 28 2020
Cold weather can be harsh—especially on your skin. The freezing temps, frigid winds, and close proximity to indoor heaters can dry out your skin and leave it looking lackluster. The solution? Making a few simple swaps and additions to your skin care and makeup routine that will keep you glowing all season long.

It may seem counterintuitive to exfoliate your dry skin for fear of irritating it further, but if you use a gentle formula it will actually help to repair your complexion. Our Gentle Exfoliator—which you can use two to three times per week—contains rosemary and vitamin E to thoroughly cleanse your skin while gently soothing and refining its surface texture.
Switch Foundation Shades
Most people’s skin tone changes throughout the year—possibly getting a shade or two lighter in the winter—which means a new shade of foundation is in order. Whether you prefer a liquid or powder formula, all of our foundation options are rich with natural ingredients to help hydrate and nourish your skin. An added bonus? Our compacts are refillable, so swapping out shades between seasons is eco-friendly and easy.
Change to Cream Cleanser
If you normally use a gel cleanser, swapping it out for a cream cleanser can add much needed moisture in the winter. Our Balancing Cleanser is great for normal to combination skin, while our Hydrating Cream Cleanser is best for those with dry or sensitive skin. Both contain nourishing botanical ingredients like aloe vera and kelp that will gently cleanse your skin while maintaining its natural moisture.
Use Cuticle Oil
Don’t use our Nail & Cuticle Conditioner yet? Now is the time to try it out. The perfect blend of three natural oils and vitamin E provides intense therapy that penetrates deeply and quickly, softening cuticles and promoting strong, hydrated, and flexible natural nails. We suggest applying in on your fingers and toes before going to bed every night to combat all the hand-washing you do during the day.
Try Cream Blush
If your face feels tight and you see flakes cropping up, consider swapping out your powder blush for a cream variety. Our 3-in-1 Multi Pots are a great option because they contain shea butter and jojoba seed oil, the formula is blendable and buildable, and it can be used on your eyes, lips, and cheeks.
Add Moisture Everywhere
Use moisturizer on your face daily, but don’t forget about your hands and body. Keep them slathered with lotion, and apply it immediately after you shower for the best results. Our Hand & Body Lotion easily absorbs into skin and is enriched with ultra-hydrating white seaweed and active plant oils to eliminate dryness and dramatically improve your skin’s texture and elasticity.
