Winter has officially kicked off! As the months get colder, dry winds blow outside, the heat starts to crank inside our houses, and of course, our skin doesn’t go unharmed. With the harsh cold climate, dry indoor air, and other winter environmental factors, you might also notice your skin feeling dry, flaky, and irritated. Dryness is one of the biggest winter concerns, but the cold weather can also worsen some common skin conditions, including eczema, rosacea flare-ups, and UV damage.
Whether you experience these issues or not, everyone can benefit from adjusting their skincare routine to adapt to changing weather and habits. Follow Jess Beauty’s best winter skincare tips and season-proof your routine to keep your skin feeling moisturized and healthy all year round!
Switch to a gentle cleanser
As the winter chill sets in, your skincare routine demands a little extra care. One crucial aspect of this is cleansing, and washing your face at least once a day is essential, but over-cleansing can lead to tightness and dryness, especially during the winter months. Instead of scrubbing your face multiple times a day switch to a gentler cleanser like Jess Beauty’s Face Reset Cleanser, which not only protects your skin's outer barrier but also locks in moisture and soothes your skin.
The goal is to maintain a gentle yet effective cleansing routine that supports your skin's natural hydration and doesn’t strip away its natural oils, offering a more nourishing experience.
Pay attention to the water temperature! Opt for lukewarm water instead of hot water when washing your face to avoid further irritation and dehydration.
Level up your hydration game with a Serum
Serums are lightweight products that contain a higher concentration of active ingredients, specifically designed to penetrate deeper into your skin. They help to brighten and provide intense hydration to your complexion, like our Shine Bright Serum, which moisturizes your skin; helps prevent discoloration and dark patches; and evens your skin tone. Apply it daily on a previously cleansed face and neck! Remember that serums are best applied after cleansing and before moisturizing to deliver a potent dose of hydration and nutrients to your skin. Jess Beauty’s Shine Bright Serum can be used both in the morning and at night since it contains niacinamide, an antioxidant that helps the skin combat the impact of free radicals. It acts as a collagen stimulator and aids in cell regeneration.
Winter is not the time to slack on using your moisturizer. You may even want to level up your moisturizer to something thicker to tackle dryness and flaking caused by cold air, such as a vitamin C-containing cream like Jess Beauty’s C Bomb Vitamin C Moisturizer! Vitamin C helps strengthen the skin's natural barrier, leading to improved hydration and moisture retention—ideal for the chilly season. The C Bomb Vitamin C Moisturizer's advanced formula offers deep hydration and rapid absorption, leaving your complexion revitalized and oil-free. It's your skin's best friend in the quest for ultimate radiance and refreshment.
As an added bonus, this body lotion is also infused with adenosine, an ingredient known for its anti-aging properties that boost collagen and elastin production—essential proteins for maintaining the skin's firmness and elasticity. It helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful complexion.
You Still Need Sunscreen!
Even though the sun’s UVB rays are not as strong in the winter, don’t forget that they are still there! With shorter days, we often tend to get a little lazy with sunscreen application, but it’s crucial to slather on sunscreen year-round, not just in the summertime. SPF should always be part of our everyday skincare routine: it’s the biggest non-negotiable product of all, so treat your skin to the very best with Jess Beauty’s Let it Sun SPF 50+ Sunscreen - your new partner in crime for all things sunny! Whether you’re enjoying the sunshine or exploring the outdoors, our formula ensures effective sun protection all season round. Beyond protection, it guards against sun damage and prevents skin aging.
Remember to wear sunscreen every morning, applying a generous amount to all exposed skin 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply about every two hours if you stay outside for a long time, or immediately after sweating or towel drying.
Nourish your skin with body balms
As winter blankets the world in a frosty embrace, our skin requires extra care to stay radiant. The colder months can strip our skin of essential moisture, leaving it dry and prone to irritation. That's why it's crucial to use quality skincare products for our entire body, such as Jess Beauty's Silky Smooth Body Balm, designed to enhance our skin's elasticity and provide a natural glow. Formulated with all-natural ingredients like Shea Butter, Calendula Extract, Camellia Sinensis, and Vitamin E, this balm is a winter savior! And for those undergoing significant weight changes, especially new mommas, the Twin Momma Belly Balm becomes a trusted ally. Its soft and buttery texture nurtures the skin, promotes elasticity, and helps prevent stretch marks; it’s a perfect match for body all moisturizing, covering elbows, knees, and even lymphatic drainage. Embrace the transformative power of these balms, ensuring your skin stays supple, moisturized, and resilient throughout the winter months.
