Our Favorite Winter Skincare Tips and SkinCeuticals Products that Work Magic

winter skincare tips

The winter season can really take a toll on your skin. The cold temperatures and lack of humidity in the air can pull the moisture right out of your skin, leaving your face feeling dry, chapped, and less radiant. Add dry indoor heat to the equation and you may be in store for seriously dry, flakey skin, leaving you to seek about the best winter skincare tips.

The products that work for your skin in the warmer months may not be what your skin needs during the dry winter months. Just as your skin changes with every season, so should your skincare routine. SkinCeuticals offers several medical-grade products that you can incorporate into your winter skincare routine to maintain healthy skin and reduce many of the common issues seen as the temperatures begin to drop.

With its mission to “improve skin health” SkinCeuticals is a brand that provides advanced skincare that’s backed by science. Their high potency formulas are medical grade, which means they are concentrated in pure actives and proven to penetrate optimally into skin.

SkinCeuticals Product Recommendations for the Winter Months

SkinCeuticals products for dry skin are designed to expertly replenish hydration, soothe the skin, and restore a healthy-looking complexion during the cold, dry winter months. For added hydration, you can pair a cleanser, serum, daily moisturizer, and mask.

“For those with especially dry or chapped skin,” Tribeca Medspa, lead aesthetician Allie Summers recommends layering emollient moisturizers like Triple Lipid Restore over hydrating serums.

Allie also recommends SkinCeuticals Retexturing Activator as a winter-time must have. “SkinCeuticals Retexturing Activator is a wonderful winter time, dual-purpose hydrating serum. It has a small amount of glycolic that gently sloughs off dry flaky dead skin cells, as well as hyaluronic acid to help trap water moisture in the skin. This product pairs wonderfully under a hydrating rich moisturizer”

SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser

SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser is a mild cream cleanser that uses a combination of allantoin, glycerin, and orange oil to soften and restore the skin’s surface while also removing makeup, dirt, debris, and other impurities. Dry skin has special cleansing needs since many traditional surfactants have the potential to strip skin and exacerbate concerns. SkinCeuticals’ gentle formula lacks the parabens, sulfates, soap, synthetic fragrance, dye, and alcohol that often dries and irritates the skin, making it a great way to start off your winter skincare routine.

  • Post-procedure skin

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 gel

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel is an oil-free hydrating serum that contains vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid to add moisture to the skin without clogging pores. While it can be used on its own, pairing it with a daily moisturizer will help alleviate dry skin in the winter.

SkinCeuticals Emollience

SkinCeuticals Emollience is a gentle facial moisturizer that uses a blend of grape seed, rose hip, and macadamia nut oils to help restore moisture, while essential oils and algae extracts help nourish and calm the skin.

SkinCeuticals Metacell Renewal B3

SkinCeuticals Metacell Renewal B3 is a hydrating, lightweight moisturizer that uses 5% niacinamide (vitamin B3) and 15% pure glycerin to improve the skin’s moisture barrier and reduce the early signs of photoaging (skin damage caused by the sun). It increases cell turnover to reveal a more even skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin elasticity and firmness—ultimately reducing the appearance of prematurely aged skin.

Recommended for

  • Dry, normal
  • Oily skin
  • Combination skin
  • Sensitive skin

SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture

SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture is a lightweight moisturizer that contains a blend of natural botanical and algae extracts to nourish the skin while restoring moisture levels.

It lacks the greasy residue associated with many moisturizers, making it an excellent choice for oily skin.

Recommended for:

  • Normal
  • Oily skin

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti-aging cream that contains a patented combination of 2% pure ceramides 1 and 3, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids, which work together to reduce the signs of aging. It also helps restore the skin’s external barrier, which can help your skin retain moisture—an important factor in maintaining healthy skin in the cold, dry winter months.

Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is the first anti-aging cream on the market that directly addresses age-related lipid loss with a 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant ratio. This formulation contains maximized concentration of pure lipids easily utilized by the skin.

Temporary skin reactivity (redness, blotchiness, dullness and skin dehydration) can occur due to dry winter weather and environmental aggressors. This versatile botanical facial mask specifically targets these issues to calm temporary reactive skin.
