Dull. Drab. Dry. Ashy. Let’s face it: as gorgeous as our skin can look in the summer, it can conversely look not-so-hot in the winter. That said, when the temperature plummets, your face game doesn’t have to follow.

Here are five super-simple steps to keep your skin stunning as the wind whips your hair back and forth:


Did you know that exfoliating before cleansing is ideal? The scrub breaks up oil and dirt, allowing your cleanser to really work its magic.


Creamy cleansers are definitely the way to go when it’s cold out. If your skin is especially “thirsty”, try an oil cleanser that you just tissue off to retain as much moisture as possible.


Oft-overlooked, a good toner balances the skin; it doesn’t strip it. If your skin feels “tight” after using a toner: on to the next one.


Treat your specific needs like a dry patch or blackheads with a good serum or a salicylic-acid product, respectively.


Reach for a rich night cream when the sun goes down and a luscious SPF-enriched cream for day (go for a great lotion if your skin is oily).

So now you have the tips: ready, set…glow!
