#1. Use A Calming And Soothing Facial Cleanser
Skincare is essential to our well-being all year round. But, particularly when we enter the colder months, it's more vital than ever to take extra special care of your skin.
The foundation of any beauty routine involves cleansing your skin. Removing bacteria, makeup, and excess oil from our faces ensures we have happy and healthy skin.
Why Winter Wrecks Havoc On Our Skin Barrier
Winter skin usually means dry skin. The changing weather and inevitable temperature drops can be disastrous for our complexion.
Our skin barrier naturally holds the moisture and hydration necessary for a healthy complexion. But during the winter months, our skin that normally traps humidity and hydration can dry up this natural moisture.
Many different factors can cause dry skin. But, primarily, dry skin is caused by new weaknesses in our skin's natural protective barrier.
Our skin's barrier can become easily compromised due to a lack of moisture or a decrease in natural oils. And winter creates the perfect conditions for drying your skin.
Winter Air Leads To Dry Skin
Cold air and harsh winter winds suck the humidity from the atmosphere, thus removing precious moisture from your skin. In addition, the dry winter air paired with cold weather decreases humidity levels in the air as well as in your skin.
Winter weather is known to contribute to dry skin. So, when the world is seemingly working against your skin's health, what's the best way to curate a winter skincare routine to get the complexion of your dreams?
Cleansing Is Critical For Caring For Winter Skin
To keep your skin nourished and hydrated, you must start with a clean, refreshed base. But the key to cleansing winter skin begins with the cleansing skincare product you have.
Harsh ingredients or exfoliators should be avoided in the winter months. Your skin needs tender care to keep its protective barrier strong and resilient to cold weather.
Use A Gentle Cleanser That Whisks Away Skin Impurities
A gentle cleanser should be the first step in your winter skincare routine. The best way to combat dryness and other winter skin woes starts by keeping your complexion clean and your pores free of impurities.
Finding the perfect winter cleanser doesn't need to be difficult. Armed with JUARA's Rice Facial Cleanser, it'll be easy for your skin to remain hydrated and glowing all winter long!
A Cleanser That Will Protect And Moisturize Your Skin All Winter
Winter isn't only harsh on our skin. It can also be damaging to our overall wellness and peace of mind. But the best way to give yourself the love and care you deserve is by treating your skin right.
Here at JUARA, our primary focus is on creating skincare products that go deeper than the skin. Our inspiration comes from centuries-old Jamu health and wellness customs that have touched the lives of many across the globe.
Natural skincare and health are the foundation of complete peace, both inside and out. When we feel peace internally, our skin shows it externally.
Natural Ingredients That Treat Your Skin The Way It Deserves
Our Rice Facial Cleanser is only one of many products we have that touch on these essential life practices. In particular, this gentle cleanser is made with refreshing and revitalizing natural ingredients that repair and restore your skin's protective barrier, leaving your skin fortified and supported.
This cleanser effortlessly removes bacteria and other impurities from your skin's pores without drying or stripping your skin. Naturally brightening ingredients like apple and plum fruit extracts keep your face radiant and glowing while rice bran smooths your skin texture and evens the tone.
Suffice it to say that wholistic wellness and healthy skin start here.
#2. Adding A Serum To Your Beauty Routine
It's natural for our skin to appear dull and haggard in the winter. Even if we're lucky enough not to suffer from dehydrated or dry skin, it's very common for our skin to lose its youthful glow during these cold months.
In order to avoid this, you’ll need to ensure that you tailor your skincare routine to give your skin the power it needs to glow again. And the best way to do that is by adding a hydrating and brightening serum.
Even if you already use a rich moisturizer, a serum is a great way to seal in the moisture and nutrients your skin gets from your other beauty products. Plus, serums offer plenty of skincare benefits on their own - it's impossible to ignore them altogether.
A Hydrating Serum That Brightens And Firms The Dullest Complexions
Winter can leave our skin feeling dull and lifeless. But JUARA's Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum has all the essential ingredients your skin needs to thrive.
Crafted with a Raindance Complex of turmeric, clove flower, and green tea, this serum both plumps and brightens the skin. Plus, its anti-inflammatory properties effortlessly soothe sensitive skin types and calm facial stress.
To truly brighten and uplift your complexion in the winter, a plumping and energizing serum is the way to go.

#3. Use Body Oil To Lock In Your Skin's Moisture
Hopefully, you're already used to using a body moisturizer to supply your skin with nutrients and hydration during the winter months. (Try out JUARA's Tiare Jasmine Body Creme for a luxurious moisturizing treatment!)
But if you want to go a step further, a great way to lock moisture and humidity into your skin is by using body oils. Our skin has natural oils that already preserve hydration, but incorporating a beauty oil into your winter skincare routine is a great way to improve its overall moisture levels.
How To Use Body Oils For Maximum Moisture
To use body oils, start by taking a warm shower. Don't use extremely hot water, as hot showers leech moisture from your skin, further contributing to any dryness.
After your shower using a natural body wash, apply a rich and creamy body lotion across your skin to give it some much-needed moisture. Richer moisturizers can keep your skin soft and hydrated by delivering a deep hydrating treatment.
After applying a body lotion, it's time to indulge in a soothing and enriching body oil formula. Smooth a few drops of any beauty oil over damp skin to lock in the moisture supplied by your body lotion.
An Oil That Delivers A Newfound Glow To Your Skin
To truly combat dry winter skin, use a body oil with natural and fortifying ingredients. JUARA's Kartini Body Oil is ideal for those who want to add powerful moisture to their skincare routine while pampering their entire body.
Named after Princess Kartini of the 1800s, its lightweight formula is still impactful enough to truly change your skin for the better. With brightening agents like turmeric oil, your skin will be left glowing.
#4. Don't Forget To Exfoliate, But Not Too Much
The best skincare routines aren't the same day-to-day. Instead, occasional alterations and periodic treatments help us give our skin other benefits that can't be garnered with a simple daily beauty routine.
Exfoliation is an aspect of almost all skincare routines that (usually) doesn't (and shouldn’t) occur daily. Experts agree that you should only exfoliate your skin once or twice weekly for the best and most beneficial results.
But in the winter, our skin health can deteriorate. It's easy for our skin to become sensitive and more easily irritated. So some of us may choose to skip the exfoliation altogether.
Exfoliating Sensitive Skin In The Winter
If you have sensitive skin, you must be more careful and picky about the exfoliators you choose. But neglecting exfoliation altogether can lead to skin conditions like acne or inflammation.
In the winter season, pick a product that will let you gently exfoliate your skin while soothing any stress your face may accumulate. This rejuvenates your complexion and keeps your pores clear and free of bacteria, makeup, or oil.
Exfoliating your entire body is a fantastic way to indulge in true self-care. And when you pair it with our last tip of using body oils, your skin will reach a new level of luxury.
An Exfoliator That Gives Your Skin The Lively Boost It Needs
Try out JUARA's Invigorating Coffee Scrub the next time you take a steamy shower to whisk away any impurities hiding in your pores. This thick and rich exfoliant glides on your skin smoothly. Just remember - a little bit goes a long way!
The dark coffee scent is sure to give your brain an energizing boost while awakening the youthful glow in your skin. Talk about a welcoming morning treatment!
#5. Incorporate An SPF Into Your Winter Skincare Routine
The sun is here 365 days a year. And even during an overcast, snowy winter day, the sun still reaches your skin.
Proper sun protection strengthens your natural barrier and prevents premature aging. Using SPF is the perfect way to shield your skin from damaging UV rays, and it’s a simple add-on to your beauty routine.
During the winter, your skin needs more care and attention. So give it the affection it deserves!
