Winter is definitely here,  posing it’s many challenges.  Here are some of our best tips for great winter skin, and for making this winter a little less gloomy.

A major task for winter is finding the perfect moisturizer to combat the frigid air and the dry skin that goes along with it. The Replenishing Face Cream, new from Malin+Goetz, is THE winter staple. This super rich and intensely hydrating moisturizer utilizes high levels of Vitamin B5, Jojoba to help shed dead skin cells while generating new ones, and healing Avocado to help promote collagen production – helping to maintain firm skin while relieving dryness associated with harsh weather, psoriasis and eczema. Use this in the evening or whenever your skin needs “more”.

For those among us with extra thirsty skin that can’t get enough, the Replenishing Face Serum is the perfect add on. This light weight gel utilizes hydrating amino acid proteins and sodium hyaluronate, which when layered under your favorite moisturizer, literally pulls moisture deeper into the skin! In addition to being intensely hydrating, it also helps to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is moisturizing to the nth degree.

The sun doesn’t just disappear just because it’s winter, making SPF a must all year round! Whether you’re hitting the slopes (sun reflects significantly off of snow) or just walking the dog, your skin is still susceptible to the damages of the sun. The Malin+Goetz SPF 15 Face Moisturizer offers UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection in a light weight, non-greasy formula.

Just because you’re at home, doesn’t mean you’ve escaped threats unique to winter – heat from radiators can wreak havoc on your skin. The Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer is the perfect end to an otherwise winter fatigued day. This luxurious all over body cream is super rich, with Vitamin B5 and shea butter, but never greasy at all, so no worries climbing into your warm bed right after use!

You’ve taken good care to protect yourself from head to toe using nothing but the best treatments, but what about your mind? Light some candles and take some time for yourself to relax! The warm, smooth and smoky aroma of Tobacco Candle pairs with the uplifting, fresh aroma of Geranium Leaf for an atmosphere of sensory relaxation, and most importantly – balance.
