Winter skin struggles are real — tight, parched, flaky, irritated faces and limbs can feel impossible to remedy during the chilliest months of the year. I remember the first time my go to skincare lineup felt inadequate in January and I went on a mission to find the magic formulas to keep my skin hydrated, clear, and glowing regardless of the weather. And after a lot of research, trial and error, I found sanctuary in face oils, serums, and balms. These three, praised by many skincare experts, kept my winter skin healthy and happy, and I’ve been a religious user ever since, always testing new formulas and new brands as the skincare world innovates at an impressive pace.
For today’s skincare story, I want to share 3 of my current crushes in winter skincare: face oils, serums, balms by the lovely and amazing Parisian skincare favorite, Darphin, that have kept my face soft and clear all winter.
3 Must Try Products for Perfect Winter Skin
No. 1: Intral Redness Relief Soothing Serum by Darphin
WHAT IT DOES: A jasmine and vanilla scented soothing serum that reduces redness, skin irritation, and softens skin.
WHY I LOVE IT: Rumor has it this was the first serum ever created, and botanicals of chamomile and peony extracts effectively calm my winter skin and even out my complexion.
No. 2: 8-Flower Nectar Oil
WHAT IT DOES: This anti-aging elixir helps smooth lines and wrinkles, hydrates winter skin, and gives a youthful glow regardless of the weather.
WHY I LOVE IT: The magic glow from using this face oil comes from radiance-boosting aromatic essences — immortelle, ylang ylang, patchouli, neroli, rose, lavender, jasmine, and iris. 450 petals from eight precious flowers in every bottle!
No 3. Aromatic Purifying Balm
WHAT IT DOES: This overnight detox treatment clarifies and purifies winter skin like no other. Bye bye breakouts!
WHY I LOVE IT: This balm is naturally made through and through — formulated with essential oils from 12 medicinal plants, spices, and flowers. Plus, this balm can be added to cuts and sores to help detoxify and soothe.
