We all deserve a pamper evening skincare routine, even more so during the chilly wintertime! With the cold, harsher weather conditions, our skin can face dullness, dehydration, flaky skin and dryness. So we need to ensure we main can be done to ensure we maintain our healthy and luminous complexion all year long? To make sure your skin doesn't suffer in the cold and harsh conditions, you might need to make a few changes to your skincare routine this winter 2021. Are you after some quality me-time with good quality skincare products? At Skinstation, we have put together a guide to our Winter Pamper Evening Skincare Routine Essentials.
A Soothing Cleanser
Melt away the day with a good quality hydrating cleanser as part of your winter skincare routine. During the winter, the air is incredibly dry and draws out moisture from the skin's surface - this can impact your skin a lot.
We recommend the ultra-hydrating Dr Dennis Gross Skincare's Hyaluronic Marine Meltaway Cleanser. This oil-free makeup removing cleanser leaves your skin feeling hydrated, soft and never tight or dry - essential for winter. The melt-away cleanser completely removes even waterproof makeup, dirt, and oil without stripping the moisture barrier. Loaded with hyaluronic acid, marine algae, kiwi and aloe, these powerful ingredients are a perfect addition for your winter pamper routine!
A Replenishing Face Mask
No winter pamper evening is complete without a rejuvenating skin facemask! We recommend Dr Levy Switzerland R3 Cell Matrix Mask: formulated by a celebrity dermatologist, Dr Phillip Levy. His potent Cell Matrix Mask that vows to restore, replenish and restructure your skin. It is packed with supercharged multi-vitamins, anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acids that keep your skin looking young and glowing through the cold winter and autumn and winter months.

A Hydrating Night Cream
Moisturise, moisturise and moisturise some more. This is an essential part of your winter pamper evening skincare routine. One of the most important things to have healthy winter skin is to keep your skin moisturised and hydrated. Without regular skin moisturiser, your skin may end up looking chapped, with dry patches and an overall dull appearance. A quality night cream is an essential part of your winter skincare routine. It helps secure the hydration it needs when you are asleep. For problematic skin, a good night cream is an ideal choice that helps fight ageing signs and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. We recommend these two below:
- SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3% Refining Night Cream is formulated with a good amount of retinol for sensitive skin that reduces redness. The lotion does not clog the pores and reduces the risk of irritation. It is the best choice for healthy, hydrated, and happy skin all through the chilly weather.
- Looking for something even more moisturising this winter? OBAGI Hydrate Luxe® could be your go-to winter pamper evening skincare moisturiser. Using cutting-edge technology, Obagi Hydrate Luxe® is specifically created to give extra-strength moisturisation overnight. This ultra-rich formula contains the signature combination of Shea butter, Mango butter and Avocado Oil, as well as key biomimetic peptides. This is the ultimate hydrator for defending against that big winter skin concern, dryness and the perfect addition to your winter evening pamper skincare routine.
A Soothing Serum
Give your skin a little extra treat this winter with adding a new serum to your winter pamper skincare routine. Facial serums can be used after your cleanser to deliver a highly concentrated dose of skincare and hydration. Not only do serums hydrate your skin but they come with a whole host of other skin benefits depending on your needs and which one you choose. We recommend Dr Barbara Sturm Brightening Serum. This brightening serum works wonders on skin that's lacking a little oomph throughout this winter. Soothing and non-aggressive, this serum is designed to combat dull and uneven complexions while providing a cocktail of nourishing ingredients.
