Congestion = Gentle Scrub
Clogged pores? Residual buildup is likely the culprit. Exfoliating helps slough off dead cells and remove impurities (a.k.a. gunk trapped below the surface). That doesn’t mean going to town with harsh products. The trick is use a gentle scrub two to three times a week. Try Eminence Organic Skin Care Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, which combines willow bark extract, heilmoor clay, and oat flour to cleanse, polish, and clarify.

Dullness = Brightening Peel
Winter pallor, err dullness, is a real thing. Ready to say sayonara to a lackluster complexion? The key to getting your glow back—well, in addition to regular exfoliation—is a radiance-boosting peel. Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial harnesses the power of AHAs (glycolic, tartaric, lactic, and citric acids), BHAs, and brightening extracts.

Dryness = Lightweight Moisturizer
Harsh, cold months can leave a lasting impression on your skin. The solution? Combat lingering dryness and rebalance moisture levels with a lightweight lotion. Something that’s not too heavy, but doesn’t skimp on hydration such as Ilike Organic Skin Care Hyaluronic Time Erase Complex Moisturizer. Vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, and hyaluronic acid make it a great choice.

Redness = Anti-Inflammatory Serum
You’ve heard of seasonal allergies. Did you know airborne buggers (ahem, pollen) also impact your face, leading to irritation and redness? While many folks take an oral antihistamine, you should consider slathering on a soothing topical like Laurel Plant Organics Anti-Inflammatory Facial Serum. Packed with calming botanicals—including azulene-rich German chamomile and Baikal skullcap (an antihistamine)—it supports barrier function and defends against elemental aggressors.

Sun Damage = SPF 30+
Sunscreen is essential 365 days a year, but as we start spending more time outdoors, it’s even more critical. Look for a broad spectrum formula that contains SPF 30 or higher and is noncomedogenic (meaning it won’t clog pores). We love Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush-On Shield SPF 50. This mineral powder offers a subtle wash of color. Plus, the self-dispensing delivery system is genius.
