Three Steps to Happy Winter Skin

Well, put away the shorts and pull out the wooly sweaters—we’re officially back into the cold weather zone in Wisconsin. And while you’re thinking about the change in wardrobe, it’s time to think about changing your skin routine as well.

Winter chill outside means forced heat inside, and both of those things can wreak havoc on your skin. Luckily, you have the best salon in Janesville on your side to give you a quick 1,2,3,(4) routine to keep you aglow.

Follow these three (and a half) steps for dewy, moisturized skin all winter long:

STEP ONE: Exfoliate

You might think that exfoliation is just for the warmer months, but in winter when you tend to have drier skin, a regular, gentle exfoliation helps to slough off dry skin and allow the moisture you’re applying to penetrate.

This is one of the reasons we love the Tulasara radiant facial dry brush and radiant oleation oil combo.

It’s a gentle, manual dry-brush exfoliation followed immediately by a facial massage with a blend containing 6 nourishing (and amazing-smelling) plant oils. Although it’s utterly decadent, it only takes a couple of minutes, and the glowing payoff is immediately visible.

STEP TWO: Cleanse

After your relaxing exfoliation and oleation ritual, use a gentle cleanser to remove impurities and prep your skin for the next step. For winter, we like Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics All-Sensitive cleanser, which is fragrance-free and perfect for skin that’s on the sensitive side.


Now that your skin is clean and exfoliated, treat it to some serious nourishment with one of Aveda’s Tulasara concentrates: highly concentrated, targeted treatments to restore firmness, brightness or calmness to your skin.

We really don’t even want to consider this an extra step, because you shouldn’t have to think about it as extra. You should be wearing some form of sun protection every day, even in winter.

Don’t be deceived by grey skies or chilly snowscapes—the sun’s burning rays still get through on overcast days and alight-colored ground cover can reflect sun upward just like sand on a beach. So don’t skip your sun protection. Ever.

Our choice: Aveda’s Daily Light Guard, a broad-spectrum SPF 30 that’s safe for all skin types and actually fights free-radicals.
