Shea’s Winter Skincare Essentials

Shea’s step-by-step routine to keep her skin glowing all season long.

This time of year is a beautiful winter wonderland…  

but the weather is notoriously brutal on skin. Between the frigid temperatures outside and the dry air inside, it’s easy to feel like you’re in a constant battle to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. During cooler months, the best skincare not only combats winter dryness, but brings a spa-like ritual to your every day in the comfort of your own home.  

Here’s Shea’s go-to winter skincare routine and some tried-and-true favorites:

Shea’s step-by-step skincare routine: 

  1. Cleanse: The most basic step, but the most essential to get that skin glowing! Living Libations Seabuckthorn Facial Cleansing Oil is a multipurpose treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes. Double cleansing really preps your skin for all the products you’ll be adding, and using these reusable makeup removal cloths to prep your face and remove any makeup gets your face squeaky clean.  
  2. Exfoliate: Kate Somerville Exfoliate has a cult following, and for good reason. Gentle but effective, the scrub sluffs off those dead, dry skin cells, and helps cell turnover to keep your face smooth and supple. 
  3. Tone: Toning makes all the difference in keeping the texture of your skin nice and smooth, and the Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner is perfect for this time of year with its hydrating qualities. Pairing the toner with these unbleached facial cottons feels like such a little luxury.   
  4. Steam: A new favorite, the Aira Ionic Facial Steamer is what really makes for a self-care routine. The device clears pores, promotes circulation, and makes your skin more receptive to products and treatments
  5. Mask: While there may not be time to do a few of these steps every day, a mask is essential now and again to keep that hydration locked in and the skin glowing. The I Mask Hydrating Hydrogel Sheet Mask is so refreshing! It revives skin, and leaves you radiant and glowing. 
  6. Eye Treatment: Biossance Squalane and Marine Algae Eye Cream is rich and creamy, never greasy. It gently combats fine lines and gives a gentle lifted look to the eye. What more could you need in an eye cream? 
  7. Moisturizer: The key to keeping the dryness at bay is a good face cream and the Dewy Skin Cream not only hydrates the skin, but keeps it looking plump and dewy all day long. 
  8. Oil: Furtuna Skin Due Alberi Biphase Oil  This is a splurge but works wonders. When the dry weather just won’t quit, it’s essential to layer on that bit of added moisture and face oils are perfect for that.  
  9. Sunscreen: We all know it: Don’t forget your sunscreen! A product like the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer that pairs makeup, moisturizer, and sunscreen all into one is basically a dream product.  
  10. Lip Treatment: The infamous Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is the perfect thing to keep that pout hydrated. While it’s labeled as a sleeping mask, using it throughout the day wards off chapped lips. 
  11. AnytimeThe Adaptogen Soothe and Hydrate Activated Mist is another one of those magical skincare products – it hydrates, calms, and evens skin tone. Use it to prep skin or as a refresher at any point throughout the day. 

And let’s not forget the skin on the rest of our body! Keep that scalp fresh with Ouai Scalp and Body Scrub, which helps to exfoliate product buildup on the scalp and smooth dry skin. Finally, Curel’s Hydra Therapy Shower Lotion is a dry weather must-have: activated by water on freshly showered skin, it heals skin, locks in moisture, and leaves no residue. Here’s to glowing, healthy skin all winter long!
