Are any of us going to be spared from Winter Storm Elliott? We’re prepping for sub-zero temperatures and 50 mph winds this week, and if you are too, we’ll be thinking of you!
I think we all know what comes along with colder temperatures – dry, flaky, sensitive skin. I’ve got it year round, but it’s especially pesky during the winter, and I’m always trying out products to try to maintain some kind of glow! Here are a few of my current favorites!
Cocokind Barrier Ceramide Serum – I actually caught this recommendation from alexeducatedmess on TikTok! She’s a cosmetic chemist (which sounds like the coolest job ever), and posted a recent video dedicated to hydration boosters for the colder months. I asked if she thought this would be safe for acne prone skin, and she said yes! I’ve been using it morning and evening for about a week, over actives and under moisturizer, and so far I’m loving how my skin feels!
Face Reality Mandelic Serum – I’ve been using this mandelic serum since I started seeing my esthetician a year ago, and it’s a game changer. In fact, it’s lovingly called “liquid gold,” around the clinic. I use the lowest strength (about to graduate!), but it’s a really gentle exfoliant that helps reduce the appearance of aging and has drastically helped with my rosacea.
Replenix Age Restore Nighttime Therapy – This has been a longtime favorite, and while it’s pricy, the tub lasts a long time and the benefits cannot be ignored. This cream feels luxurious, and in the dead of winter, it’s the only thing that quenches my thirsty skin at night. This is currently sold out on Dermstore, but that’s my trusted go to!
Peach Slices Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner – I love toner, and really find it a necessity, but exfoliants can be a little tricky in the winter months. I love this one because it also contains snail mucin, which is both exfoliating and hydrating. Win win!
These are a few of my winter staples! What saves your cold weather skin?
