Winter can be such a picturesque time of year with snuggly sweaters, crackling fireplaces, and dreamy snowfall. But, as much as we adore the best parts of the season and the chance to get cozy, winter’s cold weather can leave our skin dry, flaky, and irritated. Our estheticians Amy and Morgan know first-hand how their skin has different needs each season. While it’s necessary to switch up your skincare products based on the weather, it can feel overwhelming to know where to start with a skincare routine.
Read on for Amy and Morgan’s recommended step-by-step winter skincare routine using Comfort Zone products to give your skin the TLC it deserves this season!
1. Cleanser — Essential Milk
First thing’s first — let’s wash off the day from your skin. Comfort Zone’s creamy Essential Milk delicately removes a full-face of makeup and pollution from your skin. This cleanser suits all skin types and leaves you with a clean, luminous complexion without stripping any moisture from your skin.
How to use: massage onto dry skin with circular movements and rinse away with warm water.
Comfort Zone’s Essential Milk Cleanser is available to purchase for $39 in-store or on our Shop page.
2. Toner — Remedy Toner
This fragrance-free toner fortifies your skin barrier against cold weather with its probiotic ingredients. It’s Morgan’s go-to toner in the winter, as it soothes red, sensitive skin from the season’s brisk winds and temperatures.
How to use: spray directly onto your face and neck, closing your eyes to avoid irritation, and let dry. Repeat throughout the day when desired to refresh your skin.
Comfort Zone’s Remedy Toner is available to purchase for $41 in-store or on our Shop page.
3. Serum — Hydramemory Water Source Serum
This vegan serum quenches your dehydrated skin all season long with its hyaluronic acid and prickly pear extract, an oil known to support your skin’s elasticity and barrier. Amy and Morgan love how their skin soaks up this refreshing serum that instantly smooths out any uneven tones or textures.
How to use: apply to your face and neck and allow it to absorb completely.
Comfort Zone’s Hydramemory Water Source Serum is available to purchase for $75 in-store or on our Shop page.
4. Oil — Skin Regimen 10.0 Tulsi Booster
Dry skin will meet its match with Skin Regimen’s 10.0 Tulsi Booster — a facial oil Amy will always rave about. Tulsi is a sacred Indian medicinal herb used to help relieve physical and mental stress. It’s also known for protecting and healing dry, red skin for a brighter, silkier complexion.
How to use: apply a few drops to your face and neck. Once absorbed, follow with a moisturizer.

5. Moisturizer — Hydramemory Rich Sorbet Cream (Daytime) or Renight Cream (Nighttime)*
An important step to achieving soft, smooth, and radiant skin this winter is locking in your skin’s hydration with a moisturizer. Comfort Zone’s lightweight Rich Sorbet Cream is one of Morgan’s favorite moisturizers to relieve dry skin and boosts its ability to retain moisture in any climate — rain, snow, or shine.
As a nighttime alternative, Comfort Zone’s Zone Renight Cream is packed full of vitamins for a nourishing overnight treatment. This cream’s main ingredient is goji berry, a powerful antioxidant that helps your skin produce collagen for a plumper, more youthful-looking complexion.
How to use: massage onto your face and neck until completely absorbed.
*Macadamia oil is an ingredient in Comfort Zone’s Renight Cream. If you have a nut allergy, apply a small amount to your inner forearm first to test your sensitivity to this product.
Comfort Zone’s Hydramemory Rich Sorbet Cream and Renight Cream are available to purchase for $63 and $91 respectively in-store or on our Shop page.
6. Lip Balm — Skin Regimen Lip Balm
Winter weather can dry and chap your lips, so don’t forget to nourish them too as the final step of your skincare routine. Amy and Morgan recommend Skin Regimen’s fragrance-free lip balm that hydrates lips with its shea butter, sweet almond oil, and avocado extract. You can even apply this balm over your lipstick during your makeup routine for a beautiful, moisturizing shine.
Comfort Zone’s Skin Regimen Lip Balm is available to purchase for $22 in-store or on our Shop page.
