We asked: What are your beauty secrets to prepare for winter?

Fadi MouradFadi Mourad
Chief Innovation Officer, Dollar Shave Club

“As people consider winter and their skin, they think of dryness and the importance of moisturizing. But skin should also be protected from environmental elements. Applying a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer with sunscreen, like Big Cloud Daily Face Moisturizer SPF 25, is the most crucial step year-round. Men and women mistakenly think that sunscreen should only be applied during the summer months, when they’re going to the beach or spending the day outside.”

“Winter to me is all about the quest for dewy, glowing skin.  We have concocted the perfect cocktail to achieve this. First, we love a good glycolic peel – a quick swipe of the m-61 Powerglow exfoliating peel eliminates dull, dry skin and preps for treatment.   We love layering vitamin c, a notorious brightener and collagen builder next – m-61 Vitablast C Serum or SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic are amazing. Then we finish with a good face oil – either the La Mer Renewal Oil or Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Glowing skin in minutes!”

“A proper winter skincare routine consists of cleansing, treating and protecting. When you use Clarisonic devices, not only is your cleansing elevated, but your skincare treatment products applied post-cleanse are actually absorbed better. SPF is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer – you should wear it year-round!”

“Hydration is key in the winter – my favorite products to use are the June Jacobs Neroli Hydrating Mist and Rapid Repair Healing Cream. Neroli Hydrating Mist provides on-the-go hydration throughout the day, and can be applied under or over your daily moisturizer to help skin stay balanced and feeling soft. Rapid Repair Healing Cream helps protect your skin from the drying effects of wind and cold weather while providing up to 24 hours of moisturization. Together, these products are the perfect morning and nighttime remedy to treat and prevent dry winter skin.”

“Winter is Coming and it’s time to switch out your skincare routine.  Sometimes the changing of products as you transition between seasons can cause random blemishes – BANISH them for good with a one-step, multitasker pad like The Magic Pads.  Ease chapped and wind burnt skin with Malin + Goetz Vitamin b5 hand treatment, SW Basics of Brooklyn Organic Lip Balm Flight as they each nourish and moisturize for those cold days and nights.”

“To prep my skin for winter I like to carry La Prairie lip & eye cream for on the go beauty!  Some of my other go – to’s include Tatcha and Sulwhasoo. Since winter can dry you out – another secret is to use tissue’s with lotion (they lock in moisture) like Puff’s Plus – no one wants a red nose.”

“I try to drink more water because I’m terrible at that! I also use a hydrating mask by Embryolisse once a week, as well as my usual daily moisturizer. I also always have lip balm with me to stop my lip getting chapped.”

Louisa WarwickLouisa Warwick

“Stay moisturized! The winter always dries my skin up so I would recommend a good SPF based moisturizer to keep dry skin at bay. I usually apply Clinique superdefense on my face in the morning & a natural argan oil at night. I also apply coconut oil on my body to keep it soft.”

“For winter I make sure my skin and lips are hydrated. I apply a serum and moisturizer on my face in the morning and at night.  To protect my lips from the cold weather, I use Glossier’s Balm Dotcom. And, since it’s winter, a dark lipstick on hydrated lips always looks great.”

Stephanie ParkStephanie Park
Co-Founder of Standard Deviation

I find that facials are key during harsh, cold winters (my go to place is Pretty Please near Madison Square Park, all organic products!) and always slathering on lotion! I also have a soft spot for Korean day spas. They’re a fun group activity: sweating it out in the dry saunas before soaking outside in the heated pools!”
