Back To Basics: Winter Skincare Fundamentals

Back To Basics: Winter Skincare Fundamentals

Happy New Year!

As we come out of our nap-fueled, cookie-induced haze we are bombarded with the "new year, new you" slogan of what you can do better. Eat better. Sleep better. Do better. In my opinion better is a personal journey and you'll know when you need it. Indulging doesn't make us bad it makes us human *brushes cookie crumbs off onesie*, but not indulging your skin with a little basic winter care can definitely use a little betterment now.  

Weather plays a big role when it comes to selecting what skincare products to use because freezing temps and an overall lack of moisture in the air can lead to dry, dull, itchy skin, and fine lines caused by dehydration. It's important to pay close attention to your skin, and how it looks and feels, so you can combat extensive exposure out in the cold and keep it nourished and balanced. 

How, then, to prep the face for these chilly days? With a few basic, but key, steps that can be covered off with our highly effective products. 

The Double Happiness Skincare collection is made up of four luxurious natural products for normal, dry and sensitive skin. All products come in full and sample sizes and include: a cleanser that doubles as a makeup remover, an exfoliator that will slough off dead skin and unblock pores, a soothing face mist and a super-hydrating face oil.


Great for all skin types, this cleanser / makeup remover is perfect for keeping the skin hydrated and nourished while at the same time balancing sebum production and respecting the skin's pH level. Oil cleansing is known for its ability to decongest the skin because when an oil is massaged into the skin it locks onto dirt and makeup, which is ultimately removed when the oil cleanser is wiped off. 

Made with pumpkin seed oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, as well as evening primrose to nurture damaged skin cells, the Restart Face Oil Cleanser will effectively help your skin make it through the chilly season. 


Featured in The Kit Compact, the Flower Shower Face Mist was formulated to calm inflammation, help balance sebum production and hydrate the skin, which is especially important when cold winter temps start to irritate it.  


It's completely normal to experience dry or flaky skin in the winter because of the natural loss of moisture in the air. Skin cells die out faster in the winter and those dead cells block moisture from the layers of live cells that need it, but using a gentle exfoliator 1-2 times a week can keep your complexion glowing. 

Our dry formula, which was featured on Cityline TV, can be mixed with purified water, full-fat plain yogurt, honey or our moisturizing cleanser to boost its effectiveness. Derived from oatmeal and brown rice flour, which gently exfoliates and hydrates the skin while lavender, rose and calendula flowers uplift the senses. Add on the softening magic of sea kelp and you'll be left with a healthier, brighter glow. 


One of the biggest issues throughout winter is dull, dehydrated skin from the effects of indoor heat and the harsher temps outside. 

Oils can save your skin as they're absorbed on a deeper cellular level and help to nourish new skin cells from bottom-up. Using a face oil morning and night will tackle dehydration and offer skin support with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. For full absorption massage our Restore Face Oil Potion into the skin for about 10-15 seconds and let it sink in for another 5-10 minutes before applying your makeup.

    Thirty years ago I had one of the worse cases of chicken pox, from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, all covered with little digs, gouges and discolourations by the time I went back to work. I worked in customer service so I had to look “presentable” at all times so I wore pancake makeup to cover up. Needless to say, now in my mid-sixties, my face still showed the effects of that time of my life……then I discovered Doublehappiness Skincare and I never looked back. I’ve been using it for almost four months and no more pancake makeup for me. I went to a family function two months ago and was told how young I looked. I was sceptical because that’s something people say when they haven’t seen you for a long time, then someone said “Wow, you should wear makeup more often, you look fabulous”. For the first time I was not wearing any makeup……that morning I did my Doublehappiness routine then put on some lipstick and some loose face powder. I realize I still have some ways to go, but THANK YOU guys!!!
