It’s officially that time when we all realize winter is a b!t¢h on our skin. Between cold, dry air, rain air, and hot air from heating, you honestly can’t win. You can help, however, with great winter skin beauty products!
Not long ago, I would have been looking for thicker, heavier products to moisturize my life. Now, however, I’m a bigger fan of oils and serums that aren’t overwhelming for my skin! I also am worried about more than just my face.
So here is a collection of products for your face, your scalp, your hair, your body, and your hands because dry skin isn’t just a singular problem, is it?! No. It’s life-encompassing!
My Favorite Winter Skin Beauty Products
Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser
Indie Lee products have been in my collection for years. This brightening cleanser might just be my favorite. I love the way to helps brighten my skin, but I love the rosehip smell even more!! Start off with a clean face before adding any oils, serums, or moisturizers this winter!
Arcona Wine Oil
I was so scared of trying anything with oil in the name of a face product, but now I’m getting used to the idea. Oils are a great lightweight feeling product that really nourishes your skin (oily or dry). There are a number of oil products out there for every need, but I’m currently using this Arcona Wine Oil and LOVE it. The smell is of cloves and I find it wonderful – especially in the winter.
I apply it after I wash my face. Rub a few drops between your palms and then press your hands into your skin!
Vintner’s Daughter Active Treatment Essence
If you’re struggling with breakouts from all the changes this season, try the Vintner’s Daughter Active Treatment Essence. I’ve heard rave reviews about it clearing away breakouts quickly and effectively while also treating skin to help with future issues.
Apply with the same patting method as above on a clean face before serum or moisturizer!
Sunday Riley Vitamin C Serum
If your skin is feeling dull or you’re fighting hyperpigmentation, try a Vitamin C serum like this one from Sunday Riley. Vitamin C adds a boost to skin and will help you brighten up in no time!
I was packing on the Vitamin C beauty products during and after my pregnancy to help with pigmentation issues and now they’re almost all gone!!
Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Mask
We all need the occasional face mask to help recharge (without the full facial appointment). Dermalogica’s multivitamin power mask is my favorite for just such a task. It hydrates and plumps my skin for a refreshed feel. Using masks help recharge your face so all those other things you do can do a complete job, rather than fighting such an uphill battle.

RMS Cuticle Balm
If there’s one thing that drives me crazy all winter, it’s my dry hands. Lotion is great for the back of your hands, but I find cuticle balms are really what keep my hands happy! Try this RMS cuticle balm for great looking hands and nails!
Esker Body Wash
Esker is one of my favorite clean beauty brands and one of the few focused on your body, not your face! The body washes and oils (just below) come in three varieties – clarifying, firming, and restorative. Take their skin quiz to find out which formula is right for you! I used this body wash exclusively when I was pregnant!
Esker Body Oil
And the corresponding Esker body oils!! Oils sound crazy to apply to your skin, but they really pack in the moisture. You can try some of these techniques for how to use oils on sensitive skin, including mixing oils into your body lotion. Not only is the glass jar from Esker more sustainable, the applicator is one of my favorites for oils. It’s easy to use and dispenses without a mess!
All Over Roller for Body
We’re all obsessed with jade rollers for our face, so why not use them on our body? This all over roller is made with Xiuyan Jade that’s traditionally believed to promote regeneration, detoxification, and tension relief. Help your body oils soak in with this game-changing tool!
Briogeo Scalp Revival
And then there’s your hair and your scalp! If your scalp is dry and/or suffering from too much product build up, give it a clean start with Briogeo’s scalp revival! It detoxifies and balances the skin on your head, which suffers through the harsh elements of winter more than most parts of your body!
Josh Rosebrook Hair Mask
And then there’s your beautiful hair. If your hair is struggling with the heat and the cold, try a hair mask. I’ve actually stopped using conditioner and doing a hair mask instead! It super moisturizes and leave you with a fresh start. Avoid use too close to your scalp and be sure to rinse out thoroughly!
