My Go-To Winter Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

post featured image

I don’t know about you guys, but during the winter, my skin really throws me for a loop. Between the harsh and cold weather and more travel than usual, I start to notice that the texture and overall feel of my skin takes a hit.

I’ve tried so many products that claim they’ll soothe dry winter skin, but honestly, so many of them don’t live up to the hype. However, the good news for you is that through lots of trial and error, I finally nailed down a winter skincare routine for dry skin that actually delivers noticeable benefits.

While I know that every skin type is different, I do believe that these products will help you get your complexion under control this season. I can’t imagine my skincare lineup without these products, and I’m sure that once you try them, you’ll feel the same way.

Here’s to healthier, hydrated skin—no matter the season!

Winter Skincare Routine

Tatcha Makeup Remover & Cleanser

Most of you guys know that my love for Tatcha runs deep—and this makeup remover is one of the products I am constantly reordering. It’s super gentle on my skin and I love the way it melts off everything from mascara to concealer.

It also doubles as a cleanser (so there’s one less step for you!) and is packed with nourishing vitamins and omegas.

Joanna Czech The C+ Serum-

A quality vitamin C serum is a non-negotiable in a skincare routine, but so many of them can be harsh on your skin and ultimately lead to more irritation and dryness. That’s certainly not the case with this pick.

I actually apply this serum in the morning, but I wanted to highlight it here in case you’re looking for an option that’s lightweight and non-drying. Bonus: It’s the perfect layer to add before putting on makeup.

Guerlain Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil

This is one of my holy grail skincare finds. Everything about it feels decadent and luxe, and the best part is that it’s a total hero when it comes to saving dry winter skin.

It’s a water to oil serum that you can use either during the day or at night. I’ve been loading up on this and it has undoubtedly kept my skin fresh and hydrated throughout the weather changes.

Biossance Overnight Rescue Deep Repair Cream

I credit a lot of my progress with dry skin to this overnight cream. I think it’s a total game changer and if you’re struggling to actually keep your complexion moisturized, I’d highly recommend giving this a try.

It contains ectoin, which is shown to protect skin against damage caused by external aggressors.

Peter Thomas Roth Hydra-Gel Eye Patches

For those nights when you really want to go all out with your skincare, reach for these gel eye patches. They’re easy to use and just take 10 to 15 minutes to work some moisturizing magic. In addition to helping with dryness, these patches can also target issues like wrinkles, fine lines, and puffiness—a win-win!

Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask

If there’s one part of my skin that gets exceptionally dry during the winter, it’s my lips. If you’re in the same boat, then I promise that this soothing jelly lip mask will be your new go-to.

I really like that while this mask is ultra-hydrating, it doesn’t leave behind that dreaded “sticky” feeling. Also, you can use this at any point during the day, but I think applying it right before bed is best.
