7 tips for winter skincare


The seasons are slowly changing and before you know it, we’re just a step away from winter. The most magical time of the year for some, yet a nuisance for others who shudder at the mere thought of low temperatures, snow and short days and can’t wait for it to be over. Either way, winter offers plenty of great opportunities for outdoor activities - we just need to dress and equip ourselves appropriately to keep the cold at bay.

Warm clothing effectively protects us from wind, moisture and cold, but the one part of our body that’s directly exposed to the elements despite it is our face, which needs extra care and protection to keep the skin in balance.

However, we should not overlook the rest of our body that’s hiding under layers of warm clothing either, because it has to adapt daily to heated rooms which dry out the skin and trigger various skin problems and discomforts.

We’ve put together some simple tips to help you keep your skin balanced for as long as possible even during winter:

  1. Extra gentle cleansing

Gentle cleansing is always welcome, but especially important during winter, when a healthy acid mantle is crucial to maintain the skin’s balance. It is vital not to use products that dry out our skin, but to cleanse it with products without artificial foaming agents. This applies to both your face and your body. To gently cleanse your face, you can use our Purifying Face Cleanser, which cleanses gently but thoroughly with respect to your skin.

  1. Remove dead skin cells

Dead skin cells accumulate on the epidermis and block the path of skincare products, and, on top of that, they can make the skin look dull and tired. Exfoliation is recommended once or at most twice a week. It aims to remove dead skin cells, stimulate skin renewal and increase the effect of your care routine. It can instantly revitalise your skin and make it look healthier and more youthful. Special attention should be paid to the choice of the appropriate exfoliant, which should not be too rough, as that can cause skin damage and reactions. The intensity of the exfoliant should, of course, be adapted to the skin area; the skin on the face is very thin and delicate, which calls for a gentle scrub, whereas the skin on the rest of the body is a little thicker, so sugar crystal-based scrubs can also be used.

  1. Ensure appropriate moisturising care

Moisture is essential during all seasons and winter is no exception. Our skin needs plenty of moisturising care to maintain a healthy skin barrier and to effectively avoid the negative effects of heating, which are impossible to escape during the colder months. Immediately after cleansing, make sure to thoroughly hydrate your skin -  you can repeat the application as needed. When it comes to the texture and application of products, the rule of thumb is to apply light moisturising textures with small molecules first and then build up towards products with larger molecules (oils, richer creams). There is generally never too much moisture, but it’s important that the products are mutually compatible. At Hemptouch, we offer two ideal pairs for hydration: Moisturising Bright Essence + Nurturing Face Cream and Moisturising Bright Essence + Balancing Face Cream.

  1. Pamper your skin with rich care

We need to adjust our skincare according to the season. During the warmer part of the year, a light moisturising texture is sufficient, but our skin needs richer care that includes more nourishing ingredients during the colder season; especially natural oils and butters that supply it with lipids, thus strengthening its hydrolipidic layer and skin barrier. This helps your skin stay protected against moisture loss and temperature changes. For an extra luxurious and skin-boosting treatment, we present you the Replenishing Antioxidant Face Oil as an ideal last step in your skincare routine, because it locks in moisture and keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day.

  1. Lip balm and hand cream should be your essentials

The skin of the lips is particularly thin and delicate, for it is unable to prodce a protective filter on its own -  which makes proper care crucial in preventing dry and chapped lips. The same goes for the sensitive skin of our hands. They are one of the most exposed parts of the body; we expose them to water, cleaning products, detergents and disinfectants on a daily basis, all of which have a major impact on the condition of the skin. In winter, the skin on our hands can become extremely sensitive, reactive, often even damaged and injured. We can, thankfully, protect them by wearing gloves and using hand cream regularly, and taking care of these particularly exposed parts of the body will definitely pay off. Here at Hemptouch, we know how prone the skin of the hands and lips is to unpleasant reactions, and we have found the answer to those in the formulas of our Intensive Lip Balm and CBD Hand Cream.

  1. Don’t forget about sun safety

Even though the sun seems to be tucked somewhere far away during the dark and foggy winter days, this isn’t the case. Sunlight and UV radiation are very present even during winter, so applying SPF in your daily routine should not be overlooked; especially if you’re heading to the ski slopes and spending time indulging in winter fun outdoors.

  1. Take care of your skin from the inside out

Last but not least, let us remind you of the most important point: drinking enough water and tea, a wholesome diet, healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise in the fresh air, enough sleep and as few worries as possible. I know it sounds easy, but in reality, this part is often mission impossible. Don’t give up, though; even baby steps can go a long way ;) Set attainable daily plans and enjoy what you’ve achieved; your body will thank you and your skin will glow with satisfaction, even on cold winter days.
