Winter Skincare Routine for Healthy and Glowing Skin

Paying extra attention to how your skin reacts to winter weather conditions and adjusting your skincare routine accordingly will help you keep it protected and healthy.

During winter, cold winds and low temperatures outside often alternate with warm, dry air and low humidity indoors. Such conditions can cause dryness, leading to itchy or flaky skin, tightness, soreness, sensitivity or irritation.

Below are some simple tips to help you keep your skin healthy and glowing even during those cold winter days. 

Boost moisture

Switch out your regular moisturizer with our Face Cream, that contains natural moisturizing coconut oil and hydrating aloe vera to prevent dryness and tightness due to cold and dry air.

Wash with warm water

Gently cleanse your skin with our Shower Gel, with protective antioxidants and a complex of active ingredients from Icelandic geothermal and marine waters. Always use lukewarm not hot water, to avoid stripping your skin of its necessary oils. Apply our Body Lotion after the shower to reduce the appearance of redness and itching.

Increase hydration

After showering, always pat dry your skin to avoid micro-abrasions and apply our Anti-Aging Repair Serum to a damp face to lock in moisture and deliver a soothing shot of hydration, thanks to marine chitosan and hyaluronic acid.


Always apply sunscreen before spending time outdoors, as UVA rays penetrate the skin’s layers, breaking down collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, dryness and sun allergies. Sun damage is also the number one cause of premature skin ageing. And remember: the sun emits UV light even on cloudy days. These rays penetrate clouds and can result in sunburn. If you do get sunburn, apply our Healing Spray to heal sore, red skin, prevent inflammation and deliver a soothing cooling effect.

Supplement your skincare from within

Supplement your wellness routine with Hair, Skin & Nails. This unique, patented blend of natural ingredients will nourish the body from within and contribute to its natural repair process. 


Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and hydrate from the inside. To avoid dryness caused by dry indoor air, invest in a humidifier to balance moisture in the air and remember to apply lotions and moisturizers to damp skin to seal in moisture after showering.

Protect your hands

Like our face, our hands also bear the brunt of winter, as they too are most often exposed to harsh weather conditions. Remember to apply our Hand Cream to keep your hands moisturized and soft. With natural moisturizing oils from macadamia nuts and sweet almonds, it provides antibacterial protection without leaving any greasy residue.


ChitoCare beauty is the first skincare brand to incorporate marine chitosan into its products. Scientifically proven properties of chitosan include film-forming, moisture control and powerful skin repair.
