Some people love Winter, others dread it. It is a love hate relationship that brings warm scarves, hot chocolate, and relaxing crackling fires, with the other side of brutally cold mornings, a lack of vitamin D and sunshine and well, dry, and irritated skin mayhem!

While we cannot change darkness and coldness of Winter’s core, we can help you manage how your skin copes to ensure you get through the colder months with a skin glow only worthy envy. This is Your Winter Skincare Bible that is jam packed with useful tips, and ways to modify your home, behaviours, and skincare routine to keep your skin beautiful, protected, and healthy as Winter sets in…


Winter is fraught with cold and dry air that lacks moisture and humidity making the skin’s fragile barrier compromised. This barrier, also known as the Hydrolipidic film, is a fine translucent defensive layer that sits on top of the Epidermis (top layer of skin) and is made up of sweat, oil, and water, carrying with it, some particularly important protective functions. Then, to combat the cold climate, we blast our heaters to keep us warm, but this excess heat also draws moisture from the skin damaging the skins protective barrier. It is a double whammy and leaves our skin looking and feeling more tight, dull, irritated, and rough textured. When the skin’s barrier is compromised, the skin can become dry, sensitive, and fragile potentially also leading to premature ageing. 


Morning-time Winter skincare tips


The skin faces a lot on chilly days with harsh chilly air, low humidity, and artificial heating. Protect and hydrate your skin during the day by following these essential skincare tips:  


  • Ditch the super foaming cleanser with a gentler cleansing formula that will effectively clean and rebalance without the unnecessary stripping. Origani recommends Erda Daily Glow Toning Cleanser: Perfect for any skin type, this gentle antibacterial skin cleansing gel balances your PH level and refreshes the skin with antioxidant botanicals, while boosting radiance and skin circulation with uplifting cinnamon.
  • Apply an antioxidant and vitamin-rich serum to feed it the skin-defence and hydration essentials for protection against the harsh external environment. Origani recommends Erda Firming Serum Concentrate: A sophisticated all-rounder treatment that firms, hydrates, and protects the skin thanks to its impressive natural ingredient profile of Honey, Hyaluronic Acid, Avocado, Gutu Kola and French Marigold.
    • Up the ante on your moisturiser and swap your more lightweight moisturizer with a more dense and comforting cream base to prevent moisture loss and skin sensitivity.

    Origani recommends Erda Rich & Hydrating Day Cream: Nourishing and calming, this exceptional moisturiser provides extended all day hydration and supremely protects against daily aggressors with Green Tea Leaf extract, Pomegranate plus Vitamins E and A.

    • Do not skip the sunscreen. The sun will still find you even on cold cloudy days! 
    • Puffy dry eyes inevitably come with Winter. Refresh and protect the delicate area with a cooling nourishing eye gel straight out of the fridge. 

    Origani recommends Erda Eye Gel Concentrate: A natural miracle one-step eye treatment that targets puffiness, dark circles, and crow’s feet with Aloe Vera Juice, Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides and Cucumber Extract.

    Night-time Winter skincare tips


    The skin needs some extra skin recovery TLC in Winter to repair itself properly overnight. Recover your skin at night by following these essential skincare tips:  

    1. Only use lukewarm water with gentle facial wash to clean your skin at night. Hot water strips of natural oils and can be very drying. 
    2. In terms of a serum/treatment for the PM, Winter is the perfect time to tackle dullness, pigmentation, and sun damage as photodamage is less likely. In Winter, the UV index of the sun is lower, and we also cover up more in the cooler months. This makes it the safest and most effective time to use such active topical treatments. 

    Origani recommends Ultra Bright Vitamin C Serum: Boosts skin brightening, radiance and skin repair to prevent dullness & wrinkles with the strongest Vitamin C (3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid) and skin-brightening organic extracts. Dark Spot Correction Concentrate Pen: Directly targets pigmentation with Biovitamin C Glucoside and an intensive AHA complex with Lime Pearl Caviar.

    1. Be sure to use a night cream jam packed with essential oils to boost the skin’s overnight natural restorative functions and a hot tip is to apply your night cream to slightly damp skin.

    Origani recommends Erda Soothing & Reviving Night Cream: A skin restorative masterpiece that naturally heals and recharges the skin with a luxurious infusion of lipids, proteins, and vitamins, plus a blend of calming essential oils to ensure a restful night’s sleep.  

  • Tone down harsh exfoliation and swap it for a gentle peel instead to avoid stripping natural barrier oils and further irritating fragile skin. Origani recommends Manuka Honey Peel: Delivering 10 skin benefits in 10 seconds by way of its unique two-way exfoliating system and remarkable cocktail of delicious natural ingredients, this world famous peel contains a healthy dose of precious high-grade Manuka Honey renowned for a multitude of incredible instant skin benefits.
    1. Keep your lip balm and hand cream at your bedside table and apply before getting your 8 hours of essential beauty sleep! 

    Origani recommends Manuka Honey Lip Balm: A luxurious lip treatment infused with essential oils, Manuka Honey, Shea butter and Bees wax to nourish and protect the lips. Hand & Nail Perfection Cream: Delivers super rich moisturisation and repair for all-day protection and strong nails.


    • Invest in a humidifier that adds moisture to the air to prevent dryness that can cause irritation. Not only will it assist in preventing a dry sore throat and blocked nose, but it will also stop your skin from drying out! 
    • Heating systems can significantly dehydrate the skin so be sure to not up the dial too much on your thermostat – keep the room (and car heating) temperature comfortable but not too hot. 
    • Swap to gentler, chemical-free cleansers & home detergents. They are kinder to drier skin. Opt for formulas that are designed for sensitive skin as unnecessary chemicals and fragrances can irritate already dry skin. 

    For body washing, Origani recommends Manuka Honey Soap: A multi-purpose face and body soap that deeply nourishes tired skin and its creamy formula and heavenly scent will have you obsessed.

    • Be sure not to run your showers too hot as this is also another very well-known culprit that strips excess skin oils causing dryness and flakiness. Be sure to moisturise your entire body with a rich barrier cream as soon as you get out!

    Origani recommends Sculpting & Toning Body Butter: Firms, tones and nourishes your body to leave your skin feel contoured, silky, fresh, and hydrated.   

    • Embark on an antioxidant rich diet and introduce herbal teas this Winter to boost your immunity and overall skin health and hydration. 
    • You may not feel as thirsty in the Winter months, but it is particularly important to reach the eight glasses a day goal for optimal hydration from the inside out! 

    Happy, hydrated, and glowing Winter skin is more achievable than ever with a few tweaks to get your skin ready for the colder days and nights to come. Face this beautiful time of year with a complexion that radiates health and vitality. Be good to your skin and it will be good to you!
