Winter skincare survival

Winter is here, whether the calendar says so or not. Snow, wind and dryness wreak havoc with our skin.

Here’s how I cope with the challenges of winter.


I love Estee Lauder products.

I start each day with Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator, which brings a renewed freshness to my face. Over top, I dot on DayWear Crème SPF 15. Even though the days are shorter now, sunlight and glare reflecting off the snow can be problematic. I wear DayWear year round not only as a moisturizer but also as a sunscreen. It has a fresh cucumber/melon scent that’s lovely.

Upon arrival home, I remove my makeup as soon as I can. Estee Lauder’s Perfectly Clean foaming cleanser is both refreshing and moisturizing. I dot Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex around my eyes. Next, I smooth on Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Complex II on my face and neck. I follow up with Resilience Lift Night Firming/Sculpting Crème. It has a soft rose scent that is lovely and calming. The richness of the products means that I only use small amounts, but they make a huge difference.

I personally believe that it’s important to use a skin care system. In other words, match products within the same brand as opposed to using several different brands. Many are designed to work together for maximum benefit.

I also admire Marcelle skincare for their unscented, hypoallergenic products. Especially for people with sensitive skin, these products work very well.

Finding the right products that suit your skin type and condition is important. Many brands have questionnaires you can complete online, or you can consult an in-store beauty specialist.
