How to take care of sensitive skin in Winter

If you have sensitive skin you know that Winter and Summer are the seasons that put it the most to the test.

A few tips from your best beauty blogger friend and the right products will help you maintain its health and beauty. First, you need to know your skin type to treat it appropriately. Sensitive skin is easy to identify because it reddens easily and reacts quickly to mechanical and chemical stimulation. Now let me share with you how I take care of my sensitive skin in winter.

Morning routine for sensitive skin in Winter

In the morning, I rinse my face with lukewarm water and dab it with calendula soothing toner by Kiehl’s NY. Then I apply anti-ox facial serum Sostantia by Icnoderm, made exclusively of pure hyaluronic acid (anti-aging) and vitamin E (antioxidant).Its essential composition makes it gentle and effective. Although anti-ox facial serum Sostantia by Icnoderm leaves the skin silky and hydrated, ready for make-up, to protect my sensitive skin in winter I apply a specific facial lotion. Calming Day Lotion by Bruno Vassari is super moisturizing and soothing. It features precious natural ingredients like seaweed extract and shea butter to soothe and protect, green tea extract and olive leaves to prevent skin aging. The user experience is very pleasant, because Calming Day Lotion by Bruno Vassari has a very light texture and it’s absolutely free of alcohol and perfume. On the eye area I’m using RHA Advanced Eye Contour by Teoxane Cosmeceuticals, which I reviewed in this post. The last but not least step of my morning beauty routine is Valmont sunscreen with SPF 50. While protecting my sensitive skin from UV Rays in winter, this lightweight lotion by Valmont Suisse also makes your skin brighter.

Bedtime routine for sensitive skin in Winter

In the evening, I remove make up with City Zen Defence Lotion by Mediterranea Cosmetica. City Zen Defence Lotion is not a simple micellar water, but a detox lotion to cleanse sensitive skin in winter. While containing perfume and an active ingredient extracted from yeast with detoxifying effect, it doesn’t dry nor irritate the skin, which after a few days of use appears smooth and glowing. The deep purifying ingredient extracted from yeast is in fact balanced by the presence of allantoin – soothing and skin restoring, and arginine – moisturizing and anti-aging. After this deep cleansing, I apply anti-ageing facial serum Sostantia by Icnoderm, consisting solely of hyaluronic acid and water. At this point my dry and sensitive skin is ready to be pampered before the night rest. As you may know I’m addicted to Midnight Recovery Eye Cream by Kiehl’s, while I gently massage the rest of my face with Essential Face Cream by Juveniis, which I reviewed in this post.

    My skin type used to oily, but now it is more mixed and sometimes it is really sensitive. In Winter my skin sometimes go crazy, so I’m always on a search for a good day or night cream.

    Wonderful read Coco. I have sensitive skin too and find that REN really takes care of my own, but I wouldn’t mind trying that face serum out

    Great rundown. My skin is also sensitive and it’s really hard to find a good combo of products sometimes. Even all-natural products make my skin react sometimes.

    Thanks for sharing these useful advices *_*

  22. Shireen L. Platt - January 20, 2016

    I have seen a few bloggers saying that they only rinse their face with water and never cleanser in the mornings. Does this work for all skin types or just sensitive ones?

    Hi Coco,
    I have a very oily type of skin, and it get’s nasty during winter. I use Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel to keep my skin hydrated but not oily. I usually switch cleansers too. I haven’t tried any of the products in your article, but I would love to try the Midnight Recovery Eye cream. Thanks for sharing!

    I want to try Sostantia by Icoderm products as this was new to me. Though these products may seem tempting, had to check first if it suitable to my skin type.
