Try This Essential 5-Step Skin Care Routine for Dry Skin This Winter

So, winter weather is here in San Francisco, and although we’re excited for warm, festive drinks and the holiday spirit: Winter! Is! Coming! And that means dry air and flaky skin. But don’t worry, today we’ll be showing you a simple, ultra-hydrating, 5-step skin care routine, to make sure your skin glows this winter.


The first product on our essentials list is the Cosrx Triple Hyularonic Moisturizing Cleanser (link to Cosrx Triple Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cleanser). Not only is it ultra-hydrating, packed with three different kinds of hyaluronic acid, it also has Vitamin B5 to help further hydrate the skin. Squeezing it out of the bottle, the texture feels slick and creamy, almost like a watery moisturizer. Lathering it into the skin, the formula transforms into a silky, velvety liquid. If you’re dealing with dryness, this is a great cleanser that gently cleans your skin without stripping or damaging your skin barrier.


The toner on our essentials list will be the Etude House SoonJung 5.5 Relief Toner. This toner is fragrance and essential oil free, making it suitable for anyone with sensitive skin. It’s a great standard, gets-the-job-done toner. It has soothing and hydrating ingredients like Glycerin and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract. More so, the pH will help your skin absorb any and all the extra hydration we’ll be layering on top.


Our serum pick for this Winter Essentials routine is the Mary&May Hyaluronics Serum. This serum is rich in hydration, offering six different kinds of hyaluronic acid to help moisturize and nourish the skin. Texturally, there’s no stickiness upon application and it sinks into the skin beautifully, drying down to feel like there’s nothing there at all! It’s fragrance, essential oil, alcohol, and paraben free, making it usable for any skin type.


The moisturizer on our Winter Essentials list is the Beauty of Joseon Dynasty Cream. This moisturizer’s main ingredients are Rice Bran water and Ginseng Root water, both rich in amino acids and minerals, helping to nourish and maintain skin health. It also has 2% squalene and niacinamide, helping with further hydration and skin barrier health. Applying it to the skin, the moisturizer feels rich without feeling too greasy. Tapping it into the skin, the moisturizer absorbs quickly, nourishing the skin while leaving a slight, healthy glow. This moisturizer is perfect for folks with normal to dry skin.


Lastly, the sun screen rounding out our Dry Skin Essentials list is the Beauty of Joseon Sun Rice Probiotics. It’s a lightweight, fast-absorbing, broad range spectrum sunscreen. In addition to UV protection, it also offers a plethora of skin benefiting ingredients including rice ferment, niacinamide, soybean extract, and kelp, all formulated to make it feel more like a moisturizer than a sunscreen. It’s perfect for any skin type, but it’s especially nourishing for dry skin!
