Deep into January, winter’s beloved highs are in full swing: cozy dressing, snowy walks, and warm evenings by the fire. At the same time, we battle the challenges of dry winter skin that's determined to make a permanent mark on our complexions. The solution? A well-rounded skincare routine that gives your dry skin the extra love it needs in cold weather while showing real results over time. Get started with our curated skincare routine of best-selling products for dry winter skin.

Step 1: Start by cleansing with a hydrating face wash

Discover Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash, our #1 pH-balanced hydrating facial cleanser formulated to hydrate and tone skin while gently washing away impurities. What does pH-balanced mean? The cleansing formula is close to your skin's natural pH level. This gentle face wash also removes makeup without stripping the skin's moisture barrier. Ingredients like soy proteins help to improve elasticity and smooth skin, while cucumber extract helps to cool and calm and borage seed oil helps to nourish and soften.

Apply to wet skin and massage over your face and eyes, then rinse and pat skin dry.

Step 2: Swipe on a non-stripping facial toner

Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Toner is a daily hydrating facial toner that combines real rose petals and hyaluronic acid to clear skin of leftover impurities and minimize the look of pores. In addition to hyaluronic acid to enhance suppleness for plump-looking skin, it's formulated with rose fruit extract to tone, angelica leaf extract to retain moisture, and rosewater to calm and soothe.

Apply by pouring the liquid formula onto a cotton pad and sweeping over your face and neck.

Step 3: Follow by applying a facial essence

Our best-selling Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence is a hydrating facial treatment that provides antioxidant protection while increasing smoothness, luminosity, and suppleness. It also helps to minimize the look of pores and fine lines. Protect your skin with nature-inspired ingredients backed by science—such as kombucha to smooth skin, increase luminosity, and defend against free radicals; hyaluronic acid to enhance suppleness for plump-looking skin; kigelia africana fruit extract to smooth the appearance of skin texture; and mandarin peel extract to promote an even complexion.

What are the benefits of an essence in skincare? A facial essence is the first treatment step in your skincare routine. The liquid formula delivers concentrated ingredients with targeted benefits while prepping the skin for the products applied after (think face serums, moisturizers, and night creams); this allows your products to work more effectively.

To use, gently pat over your cleansed face and neck with your palms.

Step 4: Add a targeted treatment to your routine with a facial serum

Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum is an oil-infused liquid facial serum that deeply hydrates and retains moisture while nourishing and softening the complexion. Its science-proven lineup of natural ingredients delivers 24-hour deep hydration without a greasy finish for plump-looking skin. This includes plant-derived squalane to protect the skin and prevent moisture loss; damask rose extract to retain moisture and protect from water loss; rose flower, camelina, and rosehip oils to immediately nourish and soften; and rosewater to calm and soothe.

To use, shake the bottle well to mix the oil and water phases, which will form a silky lightweight formula. Lightly pat onto your face with your palms.

Step 5: Hydrate skin with a moisturizer for all skin types

Lotus Antioxidant Daily Moisturizer is a lightweight facial moisturizer that boosts radiance, strengthens the skin’s barrier, smoothes the look of fine lines, and protects from free radicals. It’s formulated with Super Lotus to hydrate, boost radiance, and deliver antioxidant protection, while vitamin E helps to protect, soothe, and soften the skin. Hydration is sealed in with hyaluronic acid to enhance suppleness for a plump look. Lastly, star fruit leaf extract smoothes skin while helping to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Apply by smoothing the lightweight formula onto your skin.

Whether you use each step daily or prefer to keep things simple, we encourage you to indulge in self-care this season with a new skincare routine for dry skin. Your complexion will thank you come spring!
