Keep Dry Skin Away With A Great Winter Skincare Routine

Winter is such a wonderful time of year. Holiday parties, gathering with loved ones and good friends, anticipating that first snow ❄️

While we may love winter, our skin certainly does not. Keeping your skin healthy during the changing seasons is a hassle, and the last thing you want under your Christmas sweater is dry, flaky skin!

The skincare professionals at AesthetiCare have put together a great winter skincare routine to follow that will keep your skin healthy and ready to show off when the weather warms up.

How to care for your skin in the winter

There are quite a few ways you can keep your skin healthy at home during the winter months. 


With the drier air outside, your skin cells dehydrate easier in the winter. That’s why exfoliating a couple times a week is a crucial part of your winter skincare routine. Your face and body need different exfoliation methods, however. 

For facial exfoliation, look for products with gentle chemical exfoliants, like glycolic acid, lactic acid, or retinol. Here are a few of our favorite facial exfoliators:

For body exfoliation, lotions containing AHAs like lactic acid are a great way to treat dry skin. Also look for scrubs that contain sugar granules and use replenishing oils such as avocado or squalane. 

Use a heavier moisturizer

During the winter, a great way to fight extra dryness is with a heavier cream moisturizer. Use a cream that contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramide, and calming ingredients like chamomile or lavender.

Here are just a few of our favorite moisturizers:

Keep using sunscreen

Remembering to put on sunscreen during the summer is easy, but when it’s cold out and you’re buried between layers, putting on sunscreen might slip your mind!

Sun exposure is a threat no matter what the season. Damaging rays can penetrate clouds, and snow reflects up to 80% of the sun’s rays, so the rays can hit your skin twice when it’s white outside.

Get in the habit of applying a SPF 30+ sunscreen to all exposed skin all year round. Here’s a few of the great sunscreen options we carry:
