Top 5 Ingredients You Need To Add To Your Winter Skincare Routine.

As winter is finally upon us, people have pulled out cozy blankets and quilts and are enjoying the chilly evenings next to the fireplace. However, the skin often remains overlooked during this season. Severe cold and harsh weather conditions can cause skin peeling and dryness, which can also make the skin dull and flaky. Therefore, it is important to provide the skin with proper nutrients to keep it hydrated during the winter. Today, we’ve listed 5 essential ingredients to add to your winter skincare routine to keep the skin healthy, glowy, and deeply nourished! 

Shea Butter

Shea butter and shea butter products are in high demand during the winter season. Fat, which is extracted from the nuts of the shea tree, is used to make shea butter consisting of a high concentration of fatty acids and vitamins, making it one of the most desired ingredients to soften and soothe dry, chapped winter skin. Shea Butter is also known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties, thus, making it effective for all skin types. Want to pamper your skin with the good ol’ shea butter? Nourishing Moisturizer enriched with the power of shea butter is your best bet! 


Babassu Oil

Babassu oil comes from a distant forest in South America. In terms of texture, it is somewhat similar to coconut oil as it is solid at room temperature and melts on the skin, but is less sticky. Moreover, it contains Lauric acid, an anti-inflammatory fatty acid that helps relieve irritation, reactions, and dryness. Additionally, it contains, among other things, oleic acid and myristic acid. A popular moisturizing ingredient, Babassu oil is gaining popularity due to its effectiveness and buttery texture that melts into the skin without being too heavy! 


Jojoba Oil

Facial oils are popular in winter because the skin is begging for moisture this time of the year. For oily or acne-prone skin, you may think that facial oils only exacerbate skin problems but Jojoba Oil is the one that works wonders for all skin types! In winter, the skin is especially dry, inflamed, and vulnerable to damage. This makes it an ideal time to update your winter skincare routine, and consider the benefits of adding jojoba oil to that routine as it moisturizes the skin, fights inflammation, fights free radicals, and even offers anti-aging benefits!

Hyaluronic Acid

It is impossible to make a guide on winter skincare without including hyaluronic acid. HA is considered the moisturizer par excellence and naturally occurs in our body. It stores up to a thousand times its weight in water, regenerating the skin and ensuring a youthful, radiant appearance. Rich skincare products with a combination of short-chain and long-chain hyaluronic acid are the ideal choice; while the short-chain molecules penetrate deep into the skin, cushioning it from within and softening fine lines, the larger molecules provide intensive moisturization of the epidermis.

Castor Oil

Did you know that many skin experts admire castor oil for having nourishing effects on the skin? Castor oil is squeezed from castor seeds of the tropical plant which is thicker and more sticky than argan oil and coconut oil and is much richer in vitamin E and fatty acids than most vegetable oils. Castor oil may be your answer to combat the signs of aging without artificial fillers and injections. Castor oil also helps stimulate the body's production of collagen and elastin, which can penetrate, soften and moisturize the skin. Castor oil is traditionally known for its healing properties for eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis, and other skin conditions too! And guess what? Nourishing Hydra-Gel Mask contains castor oil to give your skin the pampering that it needs! 


Winter skincare is a thing and with good reason. As the seasons change, be sure to revamp your skincare routine accordingly and use products that are gentle for your skin. Especially in winter, practice skincare to take optimal care of your skin and add these ingredients to ensure nourished, moisturized, and glowing skin, naturally!
