Winter here in Scandinavia can be quite tough for even the healthiest skin. I tend to spend too much time indoors and outside the cold air makes my skin feel like it’s a couple of sizes too small. It can get itchy and irritated and I have realized that I have to change my skincare routine during the cold winter. One thing that’s always important is to keep your skin deeply hydrated and maybe use a little bit more cream than in the summer. A dry skin simply needs more of everything.
Here are some products that keep my winter skin happy:
Melting cleansing balm or Cleansing oil – Make sure to use a cleanser that doesn’t dry out your skin. I love anything oil based that gently removes dirt and makeup without drying out. Massage over face, add water, massage again and rinse off.
Treatment enzyme peel – My bestselling 1-minute enzyme peel with aha- and bha- acids remove all dead skin cells in an instant. Use once a week and get that healthy glow back.
Moisturising intense cream and serum – Two super hydrating products that you can combine as you want. Make sure to use the serum before your day- and night cream for that extra hydration.
Moisturising facial mist – a perfect hydrating mist that keep my skin hydrated during the day. Apply anytime during the day for extra hydration. Works great over your makeup.
Treatment overnight repair mask – I use this deeply hydrating and repairing mask 2-3 times a week during the winter. After cleansing, apply this creamy mask to dry skin and keep it on all night (and no, it doesn’t get sticky). Rinse off in the morning.
