Top Skincare Products to Incorporate into your winter routine


Winter weather brings more than snow and cold spells—it can also wreak havoc on your skin, causing it to dry out, get flaky, and lose its summertime glow. These tips and skincare products recommended by a board-certified dermatologist can help you keep your skin looking young, supple, and refreshed all winter long.

The Effects of Winter on Your Skin

A lack of humidity and cold during the winter months can lead to dry, itchy, and flaky skin. To get your skin winter ready, here are some top tips and skincare product recommendations to incorporate into your winter wellness routine:

  • Heavier creams and emollients
    Stick to products that contain ceramides—these are the skin's naturally fatty acids that help maintain your skin's barrier.
  • Non-soap and hydrating cleansers
    Soap can strip your natural oils from the skin. Switching to a non-soap cleanser that's also fragrance-free will ensure gentleness while cleansing your skin during the harsh winter months.
  • Take Lukewarm Showers
    For some people, switching to hot showers in the wintertime can do more harm than good. The reason for this is that heat can cause your skin to get inflamed while stripping it off its natural, protective oils. As a result, your skin ends up being dry.
  • Exfoliate
    Whether you choose to use an over-the-counter acid or visit your dermatologist for a chemical peel, exfoliating regularly is a sure way to keep your skin moisturized and glowing all winter long.
  • Sunscreen
    Reducing your skin's exposure to the sun and wearing an adequate amount of sunscreen can help keep your skin in tip top shape during the harsh and dry winter months.
