Winter. Also known as the time of year when our skin freaks out and makes us wish we could go back to warm summer months when our skin looked dewy and hydrated. Good news, we’re here to save the day! We’ve broken down the main winter skin issues and more importantly, the solutions you’ll need this season.

Dry and Patchy Skin
Overall, dry skin is unavoidable during cold winter months. Our dream team of aestheticians have shared a few of their go-to products. Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque of concentrated vitamins A, C, E and F to help skin recover from any damage, Céla Essential Face Moisturiser infused with a blend of Canadian botanicals (blueberry, elderberry, evening primrose, juniper berry, rosemary and lavender) providing deep hydration and absorbs quickly, and a good oil or serum like the Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil to strengthen and reinforce the skin’s natural barrier.

Winter Redness
The second you step out the door, you know it’s just a matter of seconds before you feel that redness crawling across your cheeks or forehead. Don’t walk but run to a bottle of Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Masque or Serum, a clinically tested product to effectively reduce visual redness and discomfort. Apply nightly to heal any irritation, and you’ll wake up to calmer skin. By day, we love Dermalogica Ultra Calming serum. Apply a small amount to the red areas followed by your favorite moisturizer.

Flakey Body
We highly suggest hitting up a steam room as often as possible (like ours at Hammam Spa). If a steam room isn’t doing the trick, try either the Céla Black Gold Coffee Scrub or Seed to Skin Natural Grain Polish. Slather it on and massage deep into your skin. Following the life-saving scrub, don’t be shy to apply a generous amount of Crème de la Crème Light from neck to toe. Invest in a 480ml bottle to last you all winter long.

Brittle, Lifeless Hair
Let’s be honest, hair is just as important as the rest of our body. Do not neglect one of the first things we notice on a person. Try our two favorite Amika products: Soulfood Nourishing Masque and the Reset Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil. The Masque provides a deep conditioning treatment that restores and repairs dry, damaged hair. The Cleansing Oil is a gentle cleansing, pre-shampoo scalp treatment that detoxifies scalp while absorbing toxins, dirt, and buildup.

The Dreaded Chapped Lips
Don’t even pretend that there’s anything better than Céla’s Essential Balm oil! This multitasking ointment changes state from solid to liquid with body heat, providing all of the concentrated benefits of pure botanical oils and extracts with the convenience and portability of a balm. Whether skin is chapped, irritated, especially dry or simply in need of extra TLC, combined with six ultra-hydrating plant butters and six moisturising oils to soothe, treat, clarify and protect.
