Clean Face's Ultimate Winter Skin Care Guide

By Leila Cunningham, Head of Skin Care Products at CLN Company

Cold air, dry indoor heat, low humidity levels, and harsh winter wind can all affect your skin. This can leave your skin looking a lot less radiant than normal. These conditions will affect not only your face, but also your hands, feet, and other areas exposed to the elements. To safeguard your skin from the harsh effects of cold weather, such as dryness and flakiness, it may be necessary to make some adjustments to your winter skin care routine.

Adjust your skin care routine  

A winter skin care routine doesn't mean a complete change of products. Instead, it is best to listen to your skin and tailor your routine by adding or removing one to two products (as necessary), since it is important to stay consistent with skin care routines.

Layer your skin care routine

Go from lighter to heavier starting with toner, then serum then moisturizer. To boost product efficacy, regular gentle exfoliation is needed. Aquafacial is an ideal winter skin care routine addition, setting your skin care system up for success. For a more targeted boost, Clean Face Company's Revitalizing Serum is a treatment to restore and re-energize dry skin. Improving the skin’s receptiveness by exfoliating and buffing away the dead cells and surface impurities, your skin can draw in all the good stuff from these treatments, for a comforted, clearer complexion. 

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize 

Any time you wash your face, hands, or body, you strip your skin of its natural oils. Since these oils help to lock in moisture, it’s vital to replace them. That’s why it’s important to use a moisturizer any time you wash your skin, especially in winter. Choose richer moisturizer like facial oils or creams that keep moisture locked in.  

Apply sunscreen daily 

 You should be wearing sunscreen year-round on areas not covered by clothing, like the face, neck, ears, and hands. The sun reflecting off snow means UV rays are hitting you from additional angles.  

Adjust the heat 

Try to spend a little less time bathing in hot water and more time focusing on how to add moisture and hydration back into your skin. Tip: use moisturizers (face and body) immediately after showering, and before you dry with a towel. 

Hydrate from the inside 

Another key step to keeping your skin healthy and glowing is to make sure you’re staying hydrated throughout the day. Not taking in enough fluid can affect the appearance of your skin. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, like water, tea, and broths is one of the best things you can do via diet to avoid dryness. 


Winter doesn't have to mean saying goodbye to glowing, radiant skin. By implementing the above strategies into your routine you can successfully combat harsh weather conditions and retain a healthy complexion.

This winter, give your skin the ultimate gift of deep hydration, and exfoliation that it truly deserves. Aquafacial not only combats the drying effects of winter but also enhances your skin's ability to absorb the nourishment from your skincare products, giving you a truly radiant glow.
