Sometimes, staying nourished looks like an impossible mission. Fluctuating temperatures, windy situations, sunny bits – what to do? Well, have a couple of “go-to” products made of ingredients that help skin adapt to extreme weather. Ready to dig in? 

Skin’s biggest challenge during winter? It depends on where you live or what your hobbies are but generally this season exposes our skin to a lot of extreme external factors. Tough wind when walking in the city, UV rays on a slope or super low temperatures whenever.

Whatever you do, don’t strip your skin with deeply exfoliating products or at least not before leaving the house. Use gentle cleansers and masks and avoid makeup removal pads that contain lots of perfume.

We’ve gathered a list of skincare products that offer intensive hydration especially during these months.

Cleansing oil – makeup remover

Don’t be afraid your skin will look greasy because it won’t. We’ve tested this Melting Cleansing Oil from Madara for some time now and it feels lovely. It contains Sunflower Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Almond Oil and vitamin E. It doesn’t dry the surface and delivers softness and plumpness.

Eye see winter

The skin around our eyes is way more predisposed to wrinkles because of its structure but also due to the dynamic of talking and laughing. Therefore, cold weather can add an extra layer of stress to it. Cream or mask? The SOS Hydra Eye Revive contains Jojoba Seed Oil, Rose Flower Water, Evening Primrose Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Black Tea Leaf Extract, Lichen Extract, Red Clover Flower Extract and Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, for deep intensive hydration and anti-aging effects.

Lips don’t lie

If you’re biting your lips too often (you, naughty!) or have super sensitive skin, your lips are missing hydration and, therefore, volume. I absolutely love this fatty lip ointment from Lanolips. This multibalm is 100% natural made of lanolin, peach kernel oil and vitamin E.

Sooo, so soothing and easy to apply whenever needed. Plus, it’s also good for cuticles. I’ve been using it for two years now.

Peptide moisturiser is formulated for all skin types, can be used day or night for firmer skin.

If you’re going up in the mountains, you’ll need a strong SPF. So you can try this one from Revox: Just Daily SPF50 protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays hydrating it thanks to the Hyaluronic Acid improved formula.


What are your recent discoveries when it comes to keeping your face and neck hydrated and smooth? All skin types need intensive hydration and the right amount of water – two “small” things we often forget.
