Lune+Aster Micellar Gel Makeup Remover

Always remove your makeup

Removing makeup is an important step to clear away dirt and oil that has built up throughout the day, but you don't want to strip away moisture in the process. We recommend Lune+Aster One-Step Micellar Gel Makeup Remover for its gentle vegan formula that won't strip your skin.

Darphin Intral Cleansing Milk

Switch to a milk cleanser

Skin can become dehydrated and irritated by dry winter air, making it important to use a milk cleanser for its hydrating properties. We recommend Darphin Intral Cleansing Milk for an extra gentle touch. With ingredients like calming chamomile, hawthorn extract, and Darphin’s Calm Complex, skin that's prone to redness and irritation is soothed and cleansed in one step.

M-61 PowerGlow Peel Pads

Exfoliate regularly

Exfoliating regularly is central to avoiding dull winter skin and will help your serums and moisturizers absorb better. We recommend M-61 PowerGlow® Peel. It's loaded with glycolic acid to exfoliate dead cells from your skin's surface and has chamomile and lavender to calm and soothe winter irritation.

La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum

Use a nourishing serum

Locking in moisture is key during the winter due to the drier air. We recommend La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum. Not only does it flood skin with hydration, but it's packed with antioxidants and sea-sourced actives to keep skin plump, soft and supple.

Chantecaille Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence

Avoid the pollutants

While we receive less exposure to sun damage in the winter, we are still at the risk of skin-aging pollution. Add an extra layer of protection by applying an anti-pollution finishing essence to lock in protection. Chantecaille Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence is packed with powerful botanicals that fend off dust, pollutants and everyday irritants that can lead to the visible signs of aging.

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore Treatment

Apply heavier face creams

Winter is the time for heavier face creams with reparative ingredients that protect the skin's moisture barrier. We recommend SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore. It's formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids to help restore skin's external barrier while providing anti-aging benefits.

Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Eye Retinol Cream

Don’t forget the eye cream

Skin around the eyes is very thin, making it ultra-susceptible to winter dryness, which in turn draws extra attention to fine lines. Since the sun is not as strong during the winter, it's a great time to bring back products with retinol to protect against crow's feet around your eyes. We recommend Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Eye Retinol Cream. Bonus point: in addition to retinol, it's loaded with hydrating hyaluronic acid to amp up the moisture.

Patchology FlashMasque Hydrate

Go for a hydrating mask

If your skin starts feeling extra dry and needs a quick reset, we recommend a hydrating sheet mask. Patchology FlashMasque Hydrate is perfect for plumping thirsty skin thanks to quenching ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5.

 Indie Lee Squalane Oil

Try an oil for extra nourishing benefits

Oil is a fantastic moisture-locker that's proven to replenish nutrients when skin feels dry. We recommend Indie Lee Squalane Oil for a non-greasy oil that protects against dryness.
