Should I change my skincare routine for winter?

Should I change my skincare routine for winter?

As the weather turns cooler and winter sets in, our skin often struggles to retain moisture, leading to dryness and irritation. Saya is committed to sustainability and simplicity and we don't believe you need to completely overhaul your skincare over winter. We encourage simple swaps or additions to your winter skincare routine, to aid hydration, provide extra protection and nourish your skin throughout the colder months. 


Switch to heavyweight moisturisers

Hopefully, you’re already utilising moisturiser for your face and body as an everyday skincare essential. Adding a moisturiser at the end of your current routine will help to lock in moisture and protect the skin barrier against cold weather.

Our Hand & Body Lotion is an all-time Saya favourite - formulated with Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Aloe Vera, it will nourish and replenish your skin. It smells divine, absorbs easily and is suitable for everyday use for all skin types. If you need an extra boost for the winter months, our award-winning Rich Body Cream is luxuriously thick, with Coconut Butter, Shea Butter and Macadamia Oil to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin. 

For the face, if you currently use our Balance Moisture, consider swapping to Intense Moisture over winter. Switching from a lightweight formula to something heavier provides longer-lasting hydration and our Intense Moisture is suitable for all skin types, including oily and combination skin. The hero ingredient is Rosehip Oil which contains Vitamins A, with proven and effective properties in healing, restoring and rejuvenating the skin - ideal for colder weather. At night our Intense Night Repair is a rich and luxurious overnight cream, to smooth skin texture and improve firmness for healthier, radiant looking skin.


Add in facial and body oils for extra hydration

Utilising facial oil in winter can help replenish moisture levels in the skin, preventing dryness and maintaining a healthy glow despite the cold weather conditions. By adding some drops of Renew Serum into your current night-time moisturiser, you can boost hydration overnight - without needing to overhaul your routine.

Add 3-4 drops into your moisturiser and gently massage into the face. Renew Serum contains a blend of 15 botanicals, including the renowned Bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol. As a facial oil, it should be used last after other serums and works to soften the appearance of ageing, promote collagen and stimulate skin cell renewal. Using it with your moisturiser is beneficial any time of the year, but is particularly helpful over the cooler months to add hydration and nourishment.

For body, our Argan Body Oil will nourish, protect and provide ultimate hydration to the skin. Best used on warm skin after a shower or bath, it will lock in moisture and protect the skin from drying out. it is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids to leave your skin soft and glowing.


Soothe skin with a non-stripping cleanser

When cleansing your face, consider Cleansing Balm over Cleansing Gel while the weather is cold. It’s extra hydrating and non-stripping, working gently on skin that might be extra dry, sore or irritated by cold weather. The balm is applied to dry skin and transforms into a smooth oil texture when applied to the skin, rinsing off as a milk emulsion. Chamomile and Vitamin C-rich Kakadu Plum help to soothe and promote radiance. Shea Butter and Macadamia Oil leave the skin feeling soft and deeply hydrated, ideal for winter.


Choose gentle exfoliators

Lastly, gentle exfoliation over winter can help to improve the absorption of hydrating products and brighten the complexion for radiant skin, even on dull days. Our Brightening Peel is a hero product and a powerful, but incredibly gentle, overnight treatment suitable for all skin types. It contains a unique blend of Lactic Acid, Fruit Acid Complex, Hyaluronic Acid, Pentavitin, Azelaic Acid, and Australian Native Lime extracts that work together to resurface, rejuvenate, brighten, and deeply hydrate your skin. Our Coconut Body Polish provides exfoliation for the body, with Raw Sugar, Coconut and Sea Salt to provide an effective but gentle exfoliation Your skin will glow, all winter long.
