Find Your Own EWB Winter Routine by Skin Type January 12 2018

You may be one of the customers who is an expert in layering or mixing skin care products for every type of climate and weather, whether based on instinct or based on practice and exposure to popular green beauty techniques, or you may be one of the customers who seeks a prescription, a recommended routine for his or her skin type and the time of year.

It is a tremendous challenge for us to come up with a routine recommendation because so many factors at at play, the person's skin type, climate and time of year (our many customers in Australia are going into the summer right now), allergies, age, and budget. And we want you to be fully and completely satisfied! But since so many of you are asking for skin care protocols, we are working on clarifying to you all how to create morning and evening routines based solely on our products. Soon, we will be posting examples of routines in a few places on our web site, we will have a skincare Q&A section, and we will continue encouraging our long-time reviewers to make more posts on their blogs and on Instagram and videos on YouTube elaborating on how a given product suits their skin type and how it fits in their morning or evening self-care rituals.

For now, we have posted our proposal of your winter routine using our skincare products for the face and body. It can be found under Shop/Winter-Routine.

Winter, more than ever, is a time when we seek out products with splendid, memorable textures, the skincare equivalents of cashmere and wool. We have that for you, whether your skin is dry or acne-prone.

Magical Babassu

Many of us have more indoor time in winter, which is perfect for steaming and masking. If you have never steamed your face before with a carefully designed steam blend, you are up for a revelatory experience that can save your skin from perpetual dryness, and in fact takes skin hydration to an entirely new level. Our steam of choice for this time of year is the soothing and nurturing Aphrodite Facial Steam, appropriate for all skin types.
