Radiant Skin in the Winter, What’s the Secret?

Radiant Skin in the Winter, What’s the Secret?

Posted 19.01.2023

It’s no big secret that you should adjust your skincare routine throughout the Winter months. Winter can leave your skin feeling and looking dull, dry, and lacking the radiance it once had throughout Summer. 

Fortunately, that radiance can be achieved throughout the Winter giving your skin a dreamy glow again. Here’s how:

1. Switch to a richer cleanser

A cleanser is the first and one of the most important steps in your skincare routine to achieve radiant skin during Winter. Throughout the Summer months, it’s great to opt for a lightweight cleanser, since the skin naturally produces more oil, but during the Winter, when skin is lacking moisture, go for a rich oil-based cleanser to retain your natural oils.

A great option for an oil-based cleanser is our Soothing Seed Oils Cleansing Balm which not only removes make up and impurities but nourishes and strengthens the skin barrier which is a must throughout Winter.

2. Exfoliate more

Exfoliation should be a frequent step in your skincare routine all year round, but throughout the Winter it is even more important to exfoliate, so make sure you up the number of times you exfoliate from twice a week to thrice a week. Exfoliation prevents the build-up of rough and dry skin, and unleashes your inner glow as well as soft smooth skin – essential for radiant skin!

3. Switch to heavier creams

Like cleansers, it’s best to use a lightweight gel consistency moisturiser throughout the hotter months. However, for radiant skin during the Winter ditch the lightweight cream and pack on the heavier creams (think of them as a protective barrier)!

In your morning routine, we recommend our Hyaluronic Acid Firming Day Moisturiser to really illuminate, nourish, and protect the skin barrier.

At night-time reach for our award-winning Intense Repair Night Cream for a deep reparative moisturisation of the skin overnight which leaves a radiant sheen on the skin that is still visible the next morning.

4. Use a radiance boosting serum

For the ultimate radiant skin, it’s worth layering products that give a glowing effect, and radiance boosting serums are perfect for this! Our very own Vitamin C Brightening Day Serum is the perfect serum for achieving a natural glow. It’s lightweight formula pairs perfectly with our day moisturiser to give a lustre effect on the skin. Aside from brightening the skin, it also improves elasticity and texture.

5. Incorporate actives into your routine

Actives address the skin’s needs including a lack of hydration. A skincare favourite for adding moisture into the skin is Hyaluronic Acid which retains up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a must-have in your routine if you’re after radiant skin. Hyaluronic Acid can be found in many serums and should be applied onto the skin before your moisturiser. However, if you want a quick skincare routine with minimal steps, then we recommend our Hyaluronic Acid Firming Day Moisturiser as a 2-in-1 hydration boosting product.
