During the colder, windier months of the year, our skin can become dehydrated and start to lose its healthy glow.
We have put together our top 5 tips to keep your skin looking its best all Winter long!
1. Stay hydrated
Colder temperatures outside usually mean we do everything we can to stay warm inside – hot showers, cranked central heating, and countless cups of coffee. This combined with lower air humidity and lower water intake strips our skin of its natural moisture that keeps it healthy and hydrated. Turn down the shower temperature to avoid irritating the skin and cozy up with a blanket and a hot herbal tea afterward. Carry a reusable water bottle like the Back To Life Sport Bottle 24oz from Lululemon everywhere you go to feel healthy and hydrated from the inside out all winter long!
2. Don’t forget SPF
You might have heard by now that sunscreen isn’t just for summer. Snow reflects harmful UV rays on brighter, sunny days and they can still reach us through the clouds on darker, dreary days. Whether you’re out on the slopes or just running a few errands around the city, be sure to apply a mineral sunscreen like the Functionalab SPF 50 Tinted or the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 to stay protected all day, everyday.
3. Change up your skincare routine for the season
Skin becomes dryer and more sensitive as colder temperatures and frigid winds set in. While you won’t need to adapt your beauty routine completely, a few product swaps and additions will keep the skin hydrated and protected.
Functionalab CODE combines a ceramide base with a booster serum to nourish, hydrate, and repair your skin. This personalized 2-in-1 product can be adapted to your skin needs for any season! Learn more here.

4. Use more hydrating masks
Who doesn’t love a reason to do more face masks? We recommend the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Masque, an intensely hydrating weekly gel masque to help in the replenishment of moisture levels.
5. onsider professional skin treatments
Whether it’s peels, lasers, or CoolSculpting®, Winter is an ideal time to book in for your favourite skin treatments. Some treatments require you to stay out of the sun before and after and some treatments reveal cumulative results over time – so, you may need to plan ahead for Spring/Summer! It’s the perfect time to stimulate new collagen growth and start restoring your natural skin glow.
