Winter Skin Care Essentials

Jun 29, 2023

Winter Skin Care

It’s that time of year when there is less moisture in the air, which can leave your skin feeling taut and dry. If you suffer from sensitive skin, then you might find this is exacerbated by the harsh winter weather, resulting in redness, dry patches, and itching making you feel uncomfortable. If you haven’t already, now is the time to adopt an approach to winter skin care that will keep your skin hydrated, healthy, and happy. Here are our absolute winter skin care essentials.

What are some of the risks of avoiding proper winter skin care?

Even if you’ve left it a bit late, starting that skincare routine now, will help prevent a number of adverse winter skin conditions. These can include:

  • Creating more and deeper wrinkles as the dehydrated skin accentuates the lines.
  • Your skin is stripped of lipids leaving it dry and flaky.
  • Your skin barrier could get depleted resulting in red and inflamed skin.
  • Your makeup will appear uneven as it adheres to the dry skin areas.
  • Your skin will get tauter and can become itchy.

What are the best winter skin care products?

When it comes to protecting your skin in winter, you need to use the most effective yet natural products on the market. Anything less and you could risk damaging your skin further. Here are our top picks.

1.     Bath essence

Whether you start or finish your day with a bath, it’s worth counteracting the drying warmth with a bath essence that enriches your skin. Dr. Hauschka’s Spruce Warming Bath Essence combines several nourishing essential oils in one effective formulation. This is great for long soaks, as well as times of stress, or seasonal illness.

2.     Cleansing balm

You need to continue cleansing the skin, removing pollution and other impurities throughout winter, just as you would any other season, but the best winter cleanser is Dr. Hauschka’s Cleansing Balm. Using an innovative formula, the gel transforms into a luxurious milk once it’s applied to your damp skin, removing impurities while moisturising the skin.

3.     Day cream

One of the most important steps of the winter skin care regime is moisturising. Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream is a rich and luxurious cream formulated with extracts of rose petals. It contains a balanced oil and moisture content for hydrating skin. Another massive benefit is that the cream supports your skin’s natural barrier which means it’s protected against dry winds and harsh weather. However, if you’re a bit older, you may need something more targeted towards mature skin, such as Dr. Hauschka’s Regenerating Day Cream or Regenerating Serum.

4.     Hydrating mask

In winter, merely cleansing the skin is insufficient for adequate hydration, which is why you should consider incorporating a hydrating mask into your schedule. Dr. Hauschka’s Hydrating Cream Mask can be applied twice a week in the evening and left on for some time before removing it with a moist cloth just before bed. This rich and nourishing mask, consisting of a rich blend of botanicals, will leave your skin feeling plump and silky in the morning.

5.     Hair oil

The dry winter weather doesn’t only impact your skin, it can also cause your hair to dry out. Dr. Hauschka’s Hair Oil can be applied to tone and regulate the scalp while protecting your hair from winter weather. The formulation includes high-quality plant oils and medicinal plant extracts for intensive and restorative care.

6.     Lip balm

When it comes to winter skin care, don’t forget your lips! These are often the first to show the effects of the dry winter weather, with lips quickly cracking and becoming chapped. No two lip balms are alike, which is why Dr. Hauschka’s Lip Balm is the winter solution to try. Its rich texture will soothe and repair cracked lips while also protecting against cold weather conditions. The formulation includes calendula and St John’s wort for intensive protection. You can carry it with you wherever you go this winter.

7.     Eye balm

You’ve got your lips covered, but what about your eyes? Dr. Hauschka’s Eye Balm is a beeswax-based product that is incredibly protective yet feels silky smooth. The wax melts on your fingers before you apply it to the eye contour area, protecting this delicate skin against cold weather.

When it comes to winter skin care, Dr. Hauschka has a comprehensive and effective product range. Some of the reasons you might want to consider Dr. Haushka is that all products are:

  • Truly 100% natural and/or organic skin care and make-up, NATRUE certified
  • Free from synthetic chemical fragrances, colours and preservatives
  • Free from mineral oils, silicone and PEG
  • Dermatologically tested for sensitive skin
  • Not tested on animals
  • Wherever possible, all raw materials come from controlled organic or biodynamic cultivation, and are recovered under fair conditions
