Our Green Beauty Experts' Must-Have Winter Skin Essentials

Winter is approaching rapidly, which is both exciting and horrifying all at the same time. Exciting in the sense that staying in every night and watching movies is more widely acceptable, snowboarding is back, and obviously all of the wonderful holidays where we get to eat our body weight in pie and potatoes.

The not-so-great part about winter is that with harsh weather conditions ranging from cold and windy and dry to even drier, our skin is in for quite a shock. It is common to experience redness, dryness, and inflammation during the colder months. Have no fear, we’ve rounded up our top 4 winter skincare must-haves to keep your skin radiant all winter long. Here’s the roundup:

Marie Veronique Treatment Retinol

The Marie Veronique Treatment Retinol Serum is unlike any other retinol on the market. This serum is a synergistic duo of vitamin A and C that truly has the integrity of the skin barrier in mind. It will help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation while the ceramide complex prevents moisture loss and keeps skin soft and supple. This is a winter essential for a boost of collagen and to speed cell turnover. Because this is a safe retinol, aka vitamin A alternative, (not to be confused with retinyl palmitate) there is no need to worry about harmful side effects. You can expect transformative results and know your skin barrier is not being compromised. A true staple in any skincare routine!

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Mask

The Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Mask is ideal for whenever your skin needs extra support and hydration. It contains 1000 sizes of hyaluronic acid and tremella mushroom to deliver thirst-quenching hydration. Think, a glass of water, but for your skin. Key ingredients include juniper berry, banana flower, and an Australian coastal flower blend, which are all known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Clinically proven anti-redness benefits prove how incredible this mask is. If you are someone who suffers from hyper-dry and red skin in the colder months, this is the mask for you.

Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator

The Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator is not your average face mist. This multi-action product is a hydrator, toner, and a light moisturizer all in one. It delivers powerful nutrients like aloe, ashwagandha, turmeric, raspberry leaf, and st johns wort into the skin to support the appearance of youthful, plump skin. It also enhances the effect of serums and oils by acting as a delivery system to deeply penetrate into the skin to make them more effective and long-lasting. Just spritz your face a few times and add serums and oils onto the dampened skin for best results. It can also be used as a makeup setting spray and throughout the entire day as desired for an instant refresh.

 

Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream

The perfect product to follow your hydrating accelerator is the Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream. It has the hydrating barrier benefits of a balm and the absorption ability and luxurious finish of a traditional cream, setting itself apart from every other moisturizer on the market. Like the hydrating accelerator, ( and all other Josh Rosebrook products for that matter) it supports hydration, optimal barrier function, and repairing damaged skin. A key ingredient to note is Indian Senna Seed extract, which is a botanical hyaluronic acid, making it another staple product for any winter routine to retain hydration.

Adding one (or all) of these products into your routine will surely support your skin through these harsh, cold months!
