Winter Skin Care Routine

This winter has been a doozy. From – 40 C cold fronts to random +10 C and rainy to flash freezes and snow dumps. My skin doesn’t really know what to think so here’s the routine I’ve been using to keep me well hydrated and moisturized.

Once a Week Mud Masks

Most evenings you can find me in the bathtub with a cup of Epsom Salts and different essential oils. Right now I”m loving Marjoram, Siberian Fir for sore muscles. This is the perfect time to throw on a mud mask and I usually do this on Sunday nights when my evenings don’t seem as short. I use the dōTERRA Spa Detoxifying Mud Mask which just lives in my bathtub.

Daily Morning Face Moisturizer with Myrrh Essential Oil

I use the new hydrating cream from the dōTERRA Essential Skin Care Line and add one drop of Myrrh Essential Oil. I had been using only Frankincense in my lotions but I find Myrrh has been working really well with the sensitive skin on my nose which I’ve been problem-solving around.

Daily Body Moisturizer with Frankincense Essential Oil

From a body care perspective, I keep the Hand & Body Lotion on my bathroom counter with a bottle of Frankincense Essential Oil and add 1 – 2 drops to dollops of the lotion to slater the rest of my skin.

Daily Evening Face Moisturizer with Blue Tansy Essential Oil 

Recently I’ve been contending with small blemishes on my nose so I put one drop of Blue Tansy Essential Oil from the Chamomile family in my nightly evening moisturizer application and it’s been extremely soothing. I use it at night as it does turn my skin a slight blue hue for a few minutes before disappearing. The pups actually really love the smell of this one and Rogue usually attempts to lick my face before bed when I use it.

Gentle Cleanser 

I currently use the Verage Cleanser in the shower in the morning or the new Facial Cleanser is by the sink for days I wash my face in the sink or at the end of the day.


I’m currently drinking 2 – 3 L of water a day. I have 1 bottle during my morning workout or morning routine and then 2 during my work day at my desk. Sometimes I’m up to 4 L a day which used to be my norm. On days I work from home I fill 3 bottles in the morning and then know how many I’ve drunk throughout the day.

If you’ve got a delicious skin routine what else are you doing?
