Keeping your skin plump and hydrated during chilly days can be a chore and sadly, just wearing two layers of moisturizer doesn’t do much. To keep your skin well hydrated even through cold days, it’s best to use products tailored for the weather. Using the right products, you can choose to go out fresh faced or wear makeup without having your skin looking dry and dehydrated.


Dry, cold air makes the dead skin cells on your face stand out. When it’s really cold, you can feel the dry ‘stiff’ layer when you run your palm over your skin. To get rid of the dead skin, use a good exfoliator 2-3 times a week. For your face, the [SKINFOOD] BLACK SUGAR PERFECT SCRUB FOAM helps to remove dead skin cells and impurities, leaving you with smooth, healthy skin. You can also use it to scrub your entire body.

Make sure to use products with gentle ingredients that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils and moisture. They act as a barrier between your skin and the harsh weather. If you wear makeup and you usually have an intense after routine, try protecting your skin using a new method.

Prepare your skin at night. Cleanse and moisturize to keep your skin as healthy as possible. Right before your moisturize, use a hydrating essence such as the [SKINFOOD] PREMIUM LETTUCE AND CUCUMBER WATERY ESSENCE. This essence is a great choice because it is made up of two of the most hydrating skincare ingredients you can find.

If coverage is a must for you, go for very lightweight formulas that won’t completely block your pores and cause build up in your skin. The [MAMONDE] TOTAL SOLUTION MOISTURE BB CREAM provides a good base with great coverage, without being heavy on the skin. It also contains SPF 35 and comes with moisturizing ingredients that will keep your face soft and smooth through the day.

Also, use a good hydrating spray like the [LANEIGE] WATER BANK MINERAL SKIN MIST to set your makeup and give your skin a nice glow. You can also use it without makeup to give your skin a hydration boost.

While feeding your face with as much hydration as you can, don’t forget to give your lips some love too. Always have a lip balm handy and use lip masks at least 3 times in a week. You can choose from the various flavours of the [LANEIGE] HOLIDAY LIP SLEEPING MASK and give your lips a treat regularly. This is a limited line so grab yours before they go out of stock.
