Transitioning into winter involves more than just updating your wardrobe. Your skin care routine also needs an adjustment so that your complexion is equipped to deal with the challenges that winter presents. Rug up with these cool weather skin care tips.
1. Moisturiser makeover
Your skin’s hydration levels are constantly being depleted in winter due to cold air, brutal winds and cranked up heaters. That’s why it’s more important than ever to be a stickler with moisturiser application – not once – but twice a day. Use your usual moisturiser in the morning and then add in a rich night-time formula to sustain skin hydration levels.
Winter hero product: Morning Moisturiser - Medik8 C-Tetra Day Cream
- Finally… the famous C-Tetra® serum is available in a luxurious cream format. There is no doubt serums are hugely popular, but there are often times you may prefer the texture of a light day cream. If your skin is really dry then you might supplement your Hydr8™ 360 or other sunscreen with C-Tetra Cream underneath.
It's actually taken years of development to ensure the same performance and stability in this super-soft cream as you have seen from our legendary and signature C-Tetra serum. This has been a huge request from customers all over the world. New C-Tetra Cream is the perfect entry point into the Medik8 vitamin C antioxidant range.
Enjoy a truly silky, fresh and very lightly fragranced (citrus) day cream with all the benefits of Medik8’s stable vitamin C technology to help protect the skin from free radicals while maintaining healthy collagen production. Helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
C-Tetra Cream will helps energise and brighten tired skin with added hyaluronic acid to boost hydration and support the skin’s natural barrier. Combined with vitamin E for added antioxidant benefits.
Evening Moisturiser - Hydr8 Night - Advanced Antioxidant Night Cream
Rich, yet fast-absorbing restorative night-time moisturiser provides ultimate hydration for tired or environmentally compromised skin. Hydr8 Night is replete with superior anti-ageing actives such as Resveratrol for cell-longevity, Beta-Glucan for skin texture renewal and a selection of unique botanical antioxidants, such as Passionflower and Valerian, to help reverse the signs of skin ageing and restore a healthy, radiant complexion overnight. Hydr8 Night is the new meaning behind "beauty sleep".
2. Serum boost
Give your hydration levels a helping hand by adding a nourishing treatment product into your skin care routine. Concentrated moisturising formulas that contain hyaluronic acid are designed to draw and retain water deep within the layers of the skin. Ultimately this keeps skin hydrated for longer, which is precisely what you need in winter.
Winter hero product: Hydr8 B5 Skin Rehydration Serum
- This lightweight and easily-absorbed hydrating gel-serum delivers skin-softening Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and super moisture-enhancing Hyaluronic Acid to produce rapid and significant improvements in the general condition and feel of the skin. Exhibits excellent water-retaining properties to quench your skin and provides superior skin hydration. Can be used day and/or night (or whenever you want a hydration boost) to soften and smooth the skin or for optimal renewal and protection of the skin.
3. Cleanse and Brighten Your Skin
On a cold winter’s night, taking off your make-up and splashing your face with water is the pits. The good news is that new beauty wunderkind micellar water is the perfect substitute to traditional cleansing. These rinse-free formulas contain micelles, which dissolve dirt and make-up. The result is skin that’s fresh and clean – no water necessary.
Winter hero product: Pore Cleanse Gel
- Works effectively to manage the main concerns of oily skin while providing anti-ageing benefits, with both AHA and BHA acids. poreCleanse Gel contains L-Mandelic Acid, which has been shown to offer similar exfoliation properties to glycolic acid, but without the same level of stinging or irritation which can ultimately lead to superior results and a more comfortable experience.

4. Winter protection
Don’t let the cool climate fool you into forgetting about sun protection! Even during the winter months the sun’s harmful rays can be potentially damaging. Always apply a daily face sunscreen to protect skin from UVA and UVB.
Winter hero product: Hydr8 Day 360 SPF30
A powerful, daily moisturiser that provides an all-in-one shield to protect and fight against environmental and internal factors. 360 protection means going beyond simply SPF coverage - providing protection from all factors that are proven to increase the speed of skin ageing. The reinforced Hydr8™ Day 360 SPF 30 combines hydrating and protecting actives with 5 Star UVA, SPF 30, Anti-A.G.E, Anti-IR, Antioxidants and now Anti-Pollution Technology. Our advanced ingredients help to prevent visible signs of skin ageing while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So skin is now deeply moisturised and better protected against premature skin ageing effects.
5. Hydrate from within
Keeping your skin hydrated in winter isn’t just about what you put on the outside. It’s easy to forget to drink water when it’s cold because you don’t feel thirsty in the same way that you do in summer. Hydrate from within by making a conscious effort to sip water throughout the day.
