A Winter Skincare Routine For Dry Skin

In the Winter months, it’s important that you adapt your skincare routine in order to address the different skin concerns that arise as a result of the drop in temperature.

Now is the ideal time to start prepping your skin and perfect your Winter skincare routine with these Seven tips for dry skin.

What Causes Dry Skin In Winter?

Chilled air, low humidity and going between the icy outdoors to balmy central heating can significantly dehydrate your skin. When the centigrade drops, your skin reacts by narrowing the blood vessels to protect the body and lock in warmth.

Unfortunately, this natural process also reduces sebaceous gland secretion, which is what causes skin to dry out. Thankfully, you can restore your skins barrier by implementing a skin care ritual that nourishes and hydrates. To enjoy a dewy, radiant complexion, here are Omorovicza’s winter skincare tips for dry skin.

1. Swap Your Light Moisturiser For A Richer Cream

One of the easiest steps to tackle dehydration is to switch up your moisturiser for a thicker, richer cream. We suggest opting for products with moisture-binding humectants (such as hyaluronic acid) which draw water from deeper layers of the epidermis. This has a softening effect and will keep your skin looking plump, firm and dewy.

Omorovicza’s Gold Rescue Cream revitalizes the complexion with a potent formula enriched with colloidal gold. Our best moisturiser for dry skin in winter, this rich, nourishing cream provides essential hydration, while a blend of peptides works to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin looking smooth and radiant.

Apply every morning as the last step of your skincare routine to help revitalize and rejuvenate even the most dehydrated of complexions.


2. Add A Facial Oil To Your Winter Skincare Routine

For extra hydration, incorporate a facial oil into your skincare regimen. This will help to repair your skin and protect it from free radical damage and external aggressors. Used alone, layered or mixed with other formulations, they add lasting comfort and push hydration deeper into the skin.

Our Hungarian therapists recommend Miracle Face Oil as the number one product for dry skin. Its lightweight formula replenishes like a rich cream yet absorbs instantly like a serum. Blending an innovative blend of natural ingredients, this face oil nourishes and smooths the skin whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In the morning, simply mix one or two drops of Miracle Facial Oil into your serum or moisturiser. At night, massage three or four drops onto face and neck before your night cream.

Incorporate Queen oil, for skin barrier renewal. Use at the end of your evening routine instead of or after your moisturiser. The rich, glide-on treatment oil nourishes, plumps and repairs. With 3 sources of omega, collagen-boosting actives and vitamins C, E and K, it is the perfect rescue treatment to replenish all skin types in the colder months.

3. Wash With A Gentle Cleanser

Using a gentle cleanser is even more important in winter when your skin is already dehydrated. If you’re using a cleanser that’s too harsh, it can strip away the natural oils and exacerbate your dry skin in winter.

Inspired by nostalgic cold-cream rituals, Omorovicza’s Queen Cleanser is an indulgent and hydrating cleanser that leaves the skin wonderfully soft, smooth and supple with an even glow. A gentle yet thorough cleanse, the nourishing cream texture is blended with precious oils and purifying moringa seed peptide, working to remove all impurities and daily pollutants without stripping the skin.

As a morning or evening cleanse, apply a satisfying amount to dry or damp skin and massage in circular motions for a couple of minutes. Rinse well with water, or an Omorovicza Queen Cleanser for some gentle exfoliation. Pair with Thermal Cleansing Balm for an evening double cleanse.

Expert tip

Within your evening skin care ritual, follow your cleanser with Omorovicza’s Midnight Renewal serum, this allows the serum to soak in most effectively within the skin’s optimal repair window. Harnessing the powers of retinal, this serum aids the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as fortifying the skins barrier. Apply to the face and décolletage for a radiant complexion.


4. Introduce A Hydrating Toner

Introduce a hydrating toner into your winter skincare routine. A nourishing toner balances the skin and helps to strengthen the skin barrier, protecting the hydration of your skin.

The Queen Essence truly pulls out that glow from within, giving your skin a brightened, plumper-looking appearance. With a semi-fluid consistency, the essence embraces the powers of snow mushroom, tomato stem cells and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and condition the complexion for a radiant result. The essence prepares the skin for further treatment by assisting its capacity to attract and retain moisture, maximising the efficacy of your serum and moisturiser.

After cleansing, pour a few drops of Queen Essence into the palm of your hand, rub hands together and pat over face and neck. Allow a few minutes to absorb, then follow with serum and moisturiser.

5. Don’t Forget About Your Body

Dry skin doesn’t just affect your complexion, it affects your body too. Invest in a rich body lotion to replenish dehydrated skin in the cooler months.

Omorovicza’s Body Cream is rich and nourishing, blending apricot kernel oil, plum almond oil and rice germ oil to hydrate and improve the appearance of the skin. It also strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, protecting it from daily environmental aggressors.

6. Exfoliate All Over

Once a week, incorporate exfoliation into your skincare routine to gently buff away dryness and reveal a fresh, glowing, and healthy complexion.

The Gold Sugar Scrub will smooth and refine skin from neck-to-toe, while the Refining Facial Polisher will brighten a dull, lackluster complexion.

7. Condition Your Lips

Delicate and fragile, the skin on your lips is thinner than on the rest of your body. Your lips also have fewer oil glands and don’t produce melanin (the pigment that protects your skin from UV rays) which means that they have little natural protection from the sun and harsh weather conditions. Adding a lip balm to your Winter skincare routine is essential for keeping lips nourished and healthy.

Omorovicza’s Perfecting Lip Balm harnesses the properties of shea butter, eucalyptus oil and hyaluronic spheres to leave lips feeling fuller, softer and smoother.

Infused with vitamin C, this beautiful cream works to reduce the appearance of age spots to truly defy the test of time.

Massage in youthful hands as often as required to enjoy a beautifully nourishing drink for dry winter hands.
