A guide to winter skin


When the weather gets colder, it's important to keep your skin moisturized and protected. Our environment affects the condition of our skin, so take note of what your skin needs from season to season. Adjusting your skincare routine for the winter season by swapping out one product for another will keep you well-prepared for the temporal changes. Skincare routines stay the same all year round, but a few simple swaps in products can drastically improve your skin condition. Let us help you keep your skin moisturized and healthy-looking by stocking up on winter skincare products from Makari.

Step 1: Gentle cleansing

In the wintertime, it's sometimes best to swap more abrasive cleansers for a gentler routine. Many foaming cleansers can be too harsh for the cooler seasons; they use ingredients like sulfates to achieve their benefits that can make your skin dry rather than moisturized. keep your skin hydrated this cold season with mild cleansing balms, oils, and creams.

Step 2: Gently exfoliate

Dry winter air can cause your skin to look dull, but you can fight the winter blues with a gentle exfoliator. This gentle treatment removes dead skin cells without drying out your complexion. A good exfoliation routine helps your moisturizer work better, leaving you with additional hydration all day long. If you're searching for a product that won't irritate your sensitive complexion, Pure Exfoliating Scrub is the perfect choice! Use once a week to avoid irritation and combat dull skin. 

Step 3: Lock in the moisture

No matter your skin type, you should moisturize your skin regularly. In the winter our skin produces fewer natural oils than it does in the summer, leading to dry skin and flaking. A richer formula will help lock in the oils that your body produces plus protect your natural barrier against moisture loss. If you have oily skin or feel like a rich moisturizer is too much during the day, use a light moisturizer in the morning and apply a thicker one during your nighttime skincare routine. We recommend the Day Cream and Night Cream

Step 4: Sunscreen all year around

Even in the winter, whether you’re spending time in the sun or not, we all have to be careful of the sun’s harmful rays and the damage they can do to our skin. Apply sunscreen regularly, every day, even when it’s cloudy out because UV rays still penetrate clouds and windows. And remember that what goes on your skin does make a difference. Try the UV Facial Suncreen 

Step 5: Layers on layers

You can defend yourself against the harsh winter wind by layering on skin care. This works especially well if you have a few concerns that need attention, like dryness or oiliness. Start by adding a watery toner, like the Glycolic Glow Toner. Layer the Skin Repairing Serum on top and finally, top off with a moisturizer—even if your skin is dry!
