The weather is getting colder (sadly), which means it’s time to protect that delicate skin of yours. Afterall, it is the main thing protecting your insides. Here are some star products you should update your winter skincare routine with! Thank me later.

Let’s start off with the face. Washing and cleansing is the first step, so here are some top of the line products that’ll kickoff the process:




This gentle foaming cleanser not only prevents blemishes, but also smells like a heavenly face cocktail. It contains a blend of raspberry and cranberry extracts that are known for their antioxidant properties, and you even get a little bit of Vitamin B3 in the mix. Keep this bad-boy in your shower and have a field day every time you wash your face!  


Not into the fruity scents for your face? No worries, Neutrogena’s ultra gentle daily cleanser combines the superior cleansing with the same gentleness as Clearasil's’ SuperFruits. This hypoallergenic cleanser is perfect for those who have sensitive skin. As the formula removes excess oil, dirt and makeup, it also protects the skin’s natural moisture barrier in the process. Yes, you guessed it. That means extra soft skin results!


Clayspray is perfect for everything, literally. Apply this clay mask to your face, body and hair; talk about a tripple whammy! The people at Clayspray have emulsified pure clay and presented it in a spray that will rejuvenate, restore and get rid of the toxins in our pores. The face has several options of Clayspray including ones that tone, refine, brighten, mattify, glow, and hydrate. The body mask ClaySpray will be coming soon and you can expect grapes to be a key ingredient for this mask. As for the hair? You can use your face-ClaySpray in your hair as a natural mask that’ll strengthen and rejuvinate the follicles. WOW! If that’s not impressive, I don’t know what is.


Need to clean your face on the go? Want a fresh feeling after a long night out? Look no further; Blum Naturals has you covered. Their daily cleansing and makeup remover towelettes are perfectly crafted for the most pristine feeling. If you have oily skin, the Organic Tea Tree is the perfect choice. Infused with natural and botanical ingredients including tea tree oil, these towelettes will gently remove everything from your face, while leaving it naturally clean and pure. For those with sensitive skin, choose the Organic Chamomile towelettes; they gently cleanse and rehydrate for healthy looking skin. For the daily routine, the orange peel extracted exfoliating and cucumber, aloe vera towelettes are always a winner!


Once you have cleaned your face with your wash, mask or towelette of choice, it’s time to grab the after cream. 02 Oxygen Blu is a serum moisturizer saturated with lipids and pure Oxygen that is perfect for all skin types. It can be used as an oil-free moisturizer for sensitive, oily or acne prone skin. The refreshing natural fragrance increases radiance and vitality, while reducing the appearance of fine lines.

Up next are some superior age-defying products that should be added to your list.




NuFace is known for getting “non-surgical, anti-aging skin care in as little as five minutes”. It’s all about getting older and wiser, but looking younger and fresher. These hand-held devices simulate facial muscles in order to lift and contour sagging areas of the face. The results are almost instant and long-term benefits are guaranteed as it tones, tightens and firms the skin. And don’t worry about the pain...It’s nonexistent.


Nerium is an anti aging skin care range that features natural plant extracts. Nerium AD contains plant extracts from Oleander. The product has been designed to target wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, and aging. Although it’s a little pricy at $110, the product itself has a success rate of 3 out of 5… Not too shabby.




Getting rid of those stubborn wrinkles around your eyes has become much easier with Skyn Iceland’s eye patches. These hydro cool firming eye patches help firm, tone and de-puff the delicate under-eye skin within ten minutes! The hydrolyzed elastin helps with the toning and firming, while the acetyl hexapeptide helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The ginkgo biloba leaf extract relaxes blood vessels to improve the blood flow and de-puff.


This exfoliating tool acts as a double for the face and body! With a gentle steel exfoliating edge and cell catching micro-grooves, Exfolimate glides along the contours of your skin to unveil the smoother, younger layers of skin hiding beneath. The Exfolimate comes as a two-piece tool set and is an all-natural way to exfoliate your body and face. Best of all, this tool does not harbor any bacteria or chemicals (unlike loofahs and pumice stones).


AN ANTI-AGING SKINCARE COLLECTION IS BORN! The Xtend collection helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thus making the skin look younger, smoother and more radiant. The Mediterranean botanical extract helps reprogram the skin’s future by increasing youth proteins that extend the healthy lifespan of skin cells. The ARTISTRY scientists collaborated with a world-renowned company to develop a peptide specifically for this collection: the Micro-X6 Peptide. It consists of six amino acids that are known for encouraging collagen activity, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Talk about fancy! Lastly, the scientists used the African Baobab fruit extract, which provides rich moisturizing agents and antioxidants that are necessary for the preservation of the skin.


Now that we’re all set with our face, here are three products that’ll rejuvenate, restore and moisturize the body just as well as the facial products!


Eczema is the term for a group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become irritated and inflamed. Eczema usually appears on the face, hands and limbs, so this lotion is perfect all around. Eucerin is known for taming several cases of eczema and protecting sensitive skin. It relieves, calms, repairs, soothes, and moisturizes the skin. Even if you don’t have eczema, this cream is perfect for a long-lasting moisture.


This energizing citrus and vitamin C lotion not only hydrates the body, but it also rejuvenates the skin. This product is perfect for those who enjoy scented lotions; the grapefruit extract leaves a refreshingly fruity scent on the skin, while the shea butter extends the duration of the scent. It’s even easy to apply, since it is a lotion spray that is light and quickly absorbed. Your skin will feel energized and refreshed all day.


We’re all familiar with the little egg-shaped lip balms that come in various colors/scents, and now I’m introducing you to the bigger versions. Designed to fit in your purse, the eos hand lotion is perfect for every woman. Infused with moisturizing shea butter, oat extract and severl antioxidants and vitamins, this lotion will leave your skin feeling soft, supple and radiantly healthy all day. If you’re already obsessed with the lip balm, this is the perfect match to complete the dynamic duo. Look at them, making it easy to take care of your lips and legs (hey, hey now)!
