Looking for the best skincare routine for dry, winter skin? Grab some peppermint cocoa—let’s talk cold weather skincare.


Winter is coming. Or it’s here. Whatever. The point is, it’s getting colder, and that change in seasons can wreak havoc on your skin. With plummeting temperatures, drier air and moisture-sucking indoor heating, you might find your skin feeling like fallen leaves—dried to a crisp, maybe a little red and all around uncomfortable. Even if you found your best skincare routine in the summer, your winter skin may need something completely different. Here are a few simple swaps you can make to keep your skin feeling soft, supple and glowing.




Your morning pick-me-up


Truth Serum® is iconic, and with good reason. Like a daily multivitamin for your skin, this vitamin C face serum is made with our True-C Complex™ and boosted with collagen. Truth Serum is one of Ole’s first formulas, and remains our best face serum for brightening (you’ll glow as bright as the holiday lights), firming and all-day hydration. Plus, with its silky texture and energizing citrus scent, this face serum is like sunshine in a bottle for an addictively indulgent experience.



Hydrated, glowing skin? Yes, please.


If you’re looking to beat winter dryness once and for all, you search is over. C-Rush™ Brightening Double Crème, our ultra-plush, vegan moisturizer, was developed specifically for days when extra thirsty skin craves deep hydration. Powered by the same three high-potency sources of vitamin C and Rose of Winter extract as the original C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème, this indulgently rich hydrator glides on like silk to instantly illuminate and deliver an energizing burst of moisture. And, with shea butter and grape seed oil, it imparts a nourishing rush of brightness you can C.



Sugar, spice & everything nice


Want softer, smoother lips? You’re in luck. Packed with apple fiber and sugar exfoliants, Lucky Pucker™ Lip Scrub, a delicious apple cinnamon exfoliator stick, gently buffs away dry, flaky skin to reveal a smooth, supple pout. And, with essential fatty acid-rich kokum butter, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and sunflower oil, the nourishing formula helps soften lips (aka you’ll be ready to pucker up under the mistletoe).




Double the clean, double the cozy


Some traditional face cleansers—or double cleansing—can be tough on skin, especially in the colder months when your skin’s feeling sensitive. Enter Wonderfeel™ Double Cleanser: Made with olive and borage seed oils and black currant extract, it’s like cold cream reinvented. This one-step double face cleanser gently sweeps away longwear and waterproof makeup and deeply hydrates, so your skin feels soft even after you rinse.



Want glowing skin? Sleep on it.


Did you know your skin goes into repair mode while you sleep? Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Crème makes the most of that time, retexturizing the skin’s surface to allow fresher skin to glow through. This rich facial moisturizer is made with a powerful concentration of AHAs and bakuchiol (a plant-based retinol alternative) to target fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Plus, it firms and deeply hydrates. You’ll probably do a double take when you look in the mirror in the morning, and we won’t blame you.
