The drop in temperature and lack of humidity in the air mixed with central heating can be drying and irritating on your skin, causing your skin to feel uncomfortable, sensitive and red.

However, the right skincare routine can nourish and replenish your skin, helping to ease the discomfort and keep your skin happy and hydrated. Here we share our advice for the perfect winter skincare routine.


The first and most important step in your winter routine is to get rid of dead cells, flaky skin and product build up. If you don’t remove this debris from the surface of your skin, the hydrating products that you apply will not penetrate or work to their full potential. 

We recommend regular exfoliation with our award-winning overnight resurfacing serum, Opening Act

For all skin types 


When your skin feels dry and irritated, it’s time to up your moisture game. You should be using something thicker and richer in winter to give your skin extra nourishment and to support your lipid barrier.  

We suggest using our anti-stress serum Skin Meditation. This award-winning serum will provide hydration and nourishment to dry skin. It strengthens the skin’s barrier with lipids (ceramides and omega fatty acids), keeping moisture in and making skin more resilient to external elements such as the cold.

Apply the same rules to your winter skincare routine as you do with your winter clothing: layers! 

When it comes to our own serums, we recommend using Smooth Player and Skin Meditation together in our Lipid Restore Duo. The combination will protect and reinforce your lipid barrier, providing it with the nourishing and replenishing oils that your skin needs.

Incorporate hydrating ingredients into your skincare routine such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and glycerin. We suggest our multi award-winning serum Rescue Diver which brings water retaining hydrating ingredients to your skin and reduces trans-epidermal water loss to help your lipid barrier function.
