Beating the Winter Skin Blues – A mix and match guide to clean skincare products for healthy skin

Organic Face and Body Skincare Products for Healthy Skin this Winter

Hello Beautiful,

It’s that time of year again – the time when our skincare routines really get put to the test.

We’re all about living in harmony with nature around here and adjusting our skincare routines as needed goes hand-in-hand with following the natural rhythm of the seasons.

Below you’ll find a mix and match guide to natural, clean, and cruelty-free face and body skincare products to help keep your skin healthy all winter long.

I’ve broken the guide up into common skincare concerns that can crop up depending on our skin type, climate, genetics, lifestyle, and a whole host of other considerations.

Because we all have a unique blend of internal and external factors contributing to the health of our skin, it makes sense to be able to cherry-pick the products in our winter skincare routine based on what concern you’re trying to target.

This approach to routine building works especially well if you’re currently using products that are working well for you but could just use a little extra support with a particular concern that’s cropped up.

Concerns I cover in this guide include:

  • facial redness
  • facial tightness (dehydrated skin – it’s not the same thing as dry skin)
  • dry skin on the face
  • flaky skin on the face
  • having fun outdoors
  • eczema (dry type)
  • cracked heels
  • flaky skin on the body
  • dry hands
