As temperatures drop, skin can feel tight, dry and prone to chapping and flaking. Luckily, with a few adjustments to your skincare routine, you can help combat the effects of winter weather and maintain a dewy, fresh glow, no matter the forecast.

Step 1.

Just because the days are shorter doesn't mean you should skimp on sun protection. Be sure to keep up your habits of sun protection throughout the winter months, whether that means applying SPF or covering up with hats, gloves, and scarves. Cold winds can further dehydrate and chap exposed skin, so choose non-irritating fabrics and make sure to clean any items that come into contact with your face.

Step 2.

Apply a protective, emollient moisturizer like Kahina Facial Lotion over any oils or serums during the day. The beeswax and shea butter act as a barrier to keep moisture in. You can also use the Lotion at night; combine with a few drops of Kahina Argan Oil or Kahina Serum or Prickly Pear Seed Oil to make a denser consistency. For additional anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits, use Kahina Night Cream instead of Facial Lotion -- but still layer over Argan Oil, Serum, or Prickly Pear Seed Oil for maximum moisturization.

Step 3.

Use a soothing cleanser with glycerin or oils and without harsh cleansing agents like SLS. Kahina Facial Cleanser is aloe vera and argan oil-based, so it will not leave your skin feeling tight post-wash.

Step 4.

Avoid the temptation to take very hot showers or use hot water when cleansing. This can increase redness and the feeling of itchy, chapped skin. Our Goat Milk & Honey Argan Soap is a super gentle option for softening skin while cleansing. Follow a shower with an organic body oil on damp skin, like Kahina FEZ Body Serum - rich in emollient oils like argan, coconut, sunflower, olive, and watermelon.

Step 5.

Kahina Serum is a rich blend of plant oils including argan, sea buckthorn, carrot seed, and coffee berry. These assorted oils provide different nutrients and antioxidants to help rebuild and replenish overnight. We recommend that those with normal to dry skin types who are using only Kahina Argan Oil switch to Kahina Serum during colder months. Apply Kahina FEZ Hand & Body Balm to hands, heels, elbows, and other dry spots before bed (and as needed throughout the day!).

Step 6.

If the heat in your home and/or office is particularly dry, use a humidifier during the day and at night to add moisture to the air. Be sure to clean the humidifier according to the manufacturer's directions.

Step 7

Use Kahina Toning Mist throughout the day to help retain moisture and soothe redness. Sodium hyaluronate attracts water molecules in the air to your skin, while rosewater and aloe vera calm irritation. Kahina Toning Mist can be applied over makeup.

Step 8

Treat lips with an all-natural balm, like Kahina Lip & Face Balm. This skin soother is packed with calendula and blue tansy to help ease inflammation and can be used over oils and moisturizers to spot treat dry, chapped areas of the face.

Step 9

Generally, you can exfoliate less often in the winter months, but don't stop altogether, especially if you're noticing flakes. Kahina Antioxidant Mask works in 5-10 minutes and will gently buff away dry, dead skin. Its non-drying formula means you can use it as a spot treatment on any dry areas or use it all over the face for an extra exfoliation boost. Its high antioxidant content will also help protect and nourish the skin, leaving it looking brighter and more even-toned. Use it once a week or as needed.

Step 10

Now is the time to pay attention to the eye area. Consider changing from a lighter weight serum to a cream that offers more substantial hydration and protection. Kahina Eye Cream is a good choice, with sea fennel, peptides, argan oil, aloe vera, and antioxidants all working to soothe, moisturize, and comfort the delicate eye area while combating signs of aging and puffiness and dark circles. Apply it gently around the orbital bone and under the brow, taking care not to get too close to the lash line, which can cause puffiness. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly.
