One Redheads Winter Skincare Routine

A Simple Skincare Routine for Sensitive Skin

Most redheads have very sensitive skin and finding a skincare routine that works can take time and a lot of trial and error. I’m a natural redhead, who is 27 years old and has sensitive combination skin. For years I thought I needed a complicated skincare routine and expensive products to have good skin. Since 2020, I’ve started to focus more on using what my skin reacts well to instead of what I think I should be using. So I use simple products that work for me and this is my wintertime skincare routine!

Morning Routine

Morning time is when I do my full skincare routine. I work from home and don’t wear makeup while at home so it allows the products to soak into my clean skin and hydrate me all day long. If I am planning to wear makeup all day or be out and about I will swap my morning and night routines and add in a facial SPF.

Step 1: Cleanse

I wash my face in the shower using Shikai Healthy Glow Microbiome Facial Cleanser. Shikai is a brand I found through H2BAR and have been loving all of their products. Another product I like to use is Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. Then I do a gentle facial exfoliation with No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator. I only exfoliate my face 3-4 times per week. 

Step 2: Serums and Creams

Once I’m out of the shower I apply serum and eye cream. The serums I am loving are Shikai Healthy Glow Facial Serum and InstaNatural Anti-Aging Collagen Serum. Then I apply CeraVe Eye Repair Cream under my eyes and on the lids. 

Step 3: Moisturizer

My skin can get very dry around the cheeks and nose, especially in the colder months. That’s why I use a heavy night cream as my daily moisturizer. My current favorite is the Shikai Healthy Glow Hydrating Night Cream

Step 4: Oils

I only apply facial oil a few times a week and I focus on the areas where you would see signs of aging. The oil I am currently using is Snow Fox Herbal Youth Oil which was featured in a previous H2BAR Box!


Nighttime Routine

My nighttime routine is quite simple. I tend to sleep on my stomach and mash my face into my pillow so I keep it minimal when it comes to products.

Step 1: Cleanse

If I’ve worn makeup that day I will cleanse my face again after removing the makeup. If not, I skip this step because my face tends to dry out if overwashed. 

Step 2: Toner

I like to apply my toner at night and my go-to toner is always the Thayers Witch Hazel Toner in Rose Petal

Step 3: Moisturizer

 I keep my nighttime moisturizer light with Neutrogena Combination Skin Oil-Free Moisture

Step 4: Eye Cream

During the winter months, I struggle with some under-eye and eyelid dryness and mild eczema. If these spots are feeling dry I will reapply my eye cream.
