I’m sure you’re thinking to yourself, “But I already HAVE a routine! Do I need to change it for winter?”
The short answer is yes!
During the winter months our skin needs a moisture boost to protect it from the dry winter air. Cold air can cause dehydration and flaky skin. Add to that the reduced daylight hours and we begin to lose our usual natural glow. Just as we need to put on a few extra layers of clothing to keep us warm, our skin needs a few extra layers of protection to keep it healthy!
You may have adjusted your routine for fall but now is the time to assess your routine to make sure that your skin is still loving it, or if you need to tweak it to add extra protection and healing! Our Fall Weather Skincare Tips post is a great place to start if you haven’t adjusted your routine at all. This post will focus on protection and healing chapped and wind burned skin thanks to those cold, windy winter days!
Feeling like your face is a little red and sensitive after cleansing or exfoliating? Use Chaé Organics OxyPlus™ Mist to soothe and calm your skin.

Last winter skincare tip! Using a sunscreen throughout the year protects your skin from over exposure to the sun and damage from wrinkles and sun spots to cancer. In the wintertime the UV rays can bounce off of the snow, reflecting that damage right onto your face! Find a physical block sunscreen that doesn't contain Benzophenone (dioxybenxone, oxybenzone), Avobenzone, Cinnamates (cinoxate, ethylhexyl p-methoxycinnamate, octocrylene, octyl methoxycinnamate), or PABA and PABA esthers (ethyl dihydroxy propyl PABA, glyceryl PABA, p-amino benzoic acid, padimate-) or octyl dimethyl PABA)!
Adding these items to your winter skincare routine can help you keep your skin hydrated and healthy all winter long!
