As the winter months creep in, you may need to switch up your skincare routine to help you give the largest organ on your body the TLC it needs so you can look (and feel) your best. While there are five basic skincare types for skin that has no other conditions (such as psoriasis, etc.), there are factors that impact your skin. These include genetics, but also your lifestyle habits, environmental factors (such as level of pollution), seasonality and travel.
Normal Skin: Cleanser
This gel-based cleanser is not only part of the “Clean at Sephora” collection (formulated without the dirty 50), it is vegan, cruelty-free and comes in recyclable packaging. It contains natural jojoba and carnauba wax to gently exfoliate and unclog pores, promising to leave skin looking smoother and brighter, and features a citrusy aroma.
Normal Skin: Moisturizer
This moisturizer aims to tackle dull, uneven tackle using vitamin-C-rich gel cream. It promises to hydrate the skin for up to 24 hours while working to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dry Skin: Cleanser
This best-seller is a three-in-one face wash that removes impurities and build-up while working to restore elasticity. It’s full of amino acid, cucumber extract and rosewater goodness.
Dry Skin: Moisturizer
Dry skin craves a rich moisturizer that nourishes the skin and plumps it with hydration. This moisturizer packs antioxidants with Japanese purple rice for a dewy, healthy glow.
Oily Skin: Cleanser
This gel cleanser is made with tea tree oil, which purifies and calms skin, and plant-derived squalane, which locks in moisture, helping balance skin and reduce excess surface oil.
Oily Skin: Moisturizer
This custom-blend moisturizer is specially made for combination-to-oily skin, and those who may still be fighting acne and blemishes. The Salicylic acid and glucosamine help exfoliate and prevent future flare-ups.

Combination Skin: Cleanser
This gel cleanser is made with orange fruit water and PHA (helping loosen and lift dead skin), deeply cleansing and invigorating skin, without stripping it of its moisture. It also contains rosehip, gojiberry and seabuckthorn extracts to help condition it.
Combination Skin: Moisturizer
This hydrating gel moisturizer is infused with squalane and probiotics that help calm and soothe skin while supporting its natural barrier. The ginger extract also helps reduce redness while the red seaweed calms the look of stressed skin.
Sensitive Skin: Cleanser
This hydrating liquid cream also targets redness and helps soothe sensitive skin. Ingredients such as reishi (known as the mushroom of immortality) and fermented chaga mushrooms work to fortify skin against environmental pollutants.
