Shaking Off the Winter With These Skin Tips

Did you know that too much water can actually make your skin drier in the winter?

Yes—that hot shower at the end of a long day can be contributing to your dry skin. Luckily, a full-body moisturizer can do the trick to ease most dry skin during the winter.

However, the skin on your face is more delicate. So, how can you keep it soft and clean?

We’re here to fill you in. Keep reading below for our top winter to spring skin tips that will keep your face healthy and fresh throughout the cooler months!

Shaking Off Winter Skin Tips

Work on Your Glow Game

The winter blues can leave your skin looking washed out and flaky. A solid moisturizing and cleansing routine is a must for anyone suffering from dry skin in the winter.

A cleanser is necessary to clean your face before hydration. A cleanser will prevent grime and dirt from building up in your pores.

Dry skin will produce more oil in an attempt to stay moisturized. This excess oil will then clog pores and lead to breakouts. That’s why a high-quality moisturizer is essential after cleansing.

Looking for an all-in-one kit to get you started? Our Bright Skin Starter Kit contains an award-winning cleanser and moisturizer, along with a mask and serum to keep your skin glowing all winter long.

Get Masking

Let’s face it—everyone has days where they’re forced to skip their morning skincare routine. If you’re looking for a way to repair dry winter skin after a long day, masking is the perfect solution.

Both sheet masks and solid masks can give your skin the boost of hydration it needs during the chilly winter months. As spring rolls around, your skin will thank you!


Exfoliation is crucial for getting rid of dry skin buildup in the winter and early spring. Be careful when searching for an exfoliator, though—you want to find a gentle product that won’t damage your skin.

Our citrus gel exfoliators are perfect for cracking skin. They gently remove the dead skin and debris without hurting the layers beneath.

Skin Care Is Nothing Without Sun Care 

Many winter to spring skin tip lists will neglect to mention the importance of UV protection. Just because the sky is cloudy and gray doesn’t mean the sun can’t damage your skin!

Sun damage leads to wrinkles, dry skin, and the risk of developing skin cancer. Luckily, you don’t need to keep a can of spray-on sunscreen with you as you trek through the snow.

There are plenty of moisturizers and sunscreen combos available in the beauty world these days. If you plan to wear makeup, invest in products with SPF.

Peel to Reveal the Glow

Not everyone is a fan of traditional facial masks. After all, they can get a bit messy.

Luckily, facial peels are another great way to rejuvenate your skin. Facial peels often go on clear and are thin enough to wear comfortably as you get ready in the morning or before bed.

Peels are the perfect way to remove dry skin before applying a high-quality moisturizer. Many peels are multipurpose and act as anti-aging or acne-fighting treatments too!
