Caring for skin during winter takes just a little extra time. During the colder season our skin gets exposed to the elements - cold air, low humidity, and most likely dry heat from our heaters indoors.
All these fluctuating temperatures leave their mark but if you get into a good routine your skin will reap the rewards.
If you are struggling to maintain your skin during winter, we have a few winter tips to help you maintain your skin’s moisture.
Here are our top 6 ways to care for you skin in winter.
Don’t forget sunscreen
It doesn’t matter what season we are in. We believe all great moisturisers should contain UVA/UBV sun protection ingredients. Even in winter the harsh sun rays can penetrate our precious skin.
Our SPF moisturiser containing UVA/UVB sun protection ingredients helps protect against premature ageing from sun damage.
Use a moisturising, hydrating cleanser in winter
Did you know you need to shed all of your dry flaky skin on the surface before you apply your moisturiser?
It is important to cleanse twice daily to remove impurities and let our skin breathe. A well-formulated cleanser is one that can thoroughly clean the skin and not destroy the natural skin structure. Cleansing also increases the blood flow, and aids elimination of toxins.
You should always choose a cleanser to suit your skin type to get the best results. Read our blog on choosing the right cleanser for your skin type here.
Try a Serum
After cleansing, your skin will be clean, and free from the dirt and grime that clogs your pores. This is the perfect time to apply an antioxidant vitamin serum.
When formulated into serum, antioxidant vitamins can penetrate the skin to help:
Our C-Blanc Vitamin C Serum is packed with abundant antioxidants and 1-2 pumps in the morning before moisturising is all you need for visible results.
Our B-Hydrate Multivitamin B Serum has a range of powerful ingredients including Vitamin B3 and Vitamin B5. This beautiful serum is effective at restoring the moisture balance of the skin and repairing damaged skin.
There are so many benefits to exfoliating your skin during winter, even for those of us who have dry skin, exfoliating once a week can boost skin regeneration. By removing the dry dead skin cells, you are helping you regenerate new ones. Your skin will thank you for it.
Our Exfoliating Scrub with Salicylic & Rice and B Exfoliating Cleanser helps to absorb excess surface oil while gently scrubbing away dirt and impurities resulting in bright, supple, hydrated skin. Salicylic Acid is a key ingredient in both products and one of the most effective exfoliants because of its deep pore penetration properties.
It softens the pores which make it easy to remove dirt and oil from deep down leaving you with a beautiful, glowing complexion.
Apply a little liquid gold
No matter the climate our skin is exposed to free radicals all year which results in causing sunspots, the breakdown of collagen, and premature fine lines.
Choosing a gentle cleanser, moisturiser and products like The Oil gives your skin the extra nourishment it craves in the colder seasons.
The Oil contains antioxidants that help revitalise the skin and boost hydration. The non-greasy, fast absorption is great for dry skin and helps keep the moisture levels of the skin balanced all year round.
A good skincare routine
Don’t just treat your skin to a nourishing routine for a few days or weeks.
A great skincare routine is essential for healthy looking skin all year round. When it comes to the skin there are proven methods and steps that yield real results, and remember, a good skincare routine is not just for your face. Your body deserves it too!
We have a specially formulated hair and body range to keep your skin nourished and hydrated all over.
Keep your skin healthy and glowing during the cooler months with a consistent routine and excellent skincare products.

Passion for Skincare
En Face is a skin care company inspired by the French philosophy that healthy skin is the foundation for lifelong beauty and a reflection of overall health.
Kim Baxter is the passionate owner behind the En Face Skincare brand. From as early as 18 years of age Kim became very interested in skincare. As a professional ballet dancer, she was used to wearing lots of heavy make-up for long periods of time.
The heavy foundation she applied under stage makeup often left her skin feeling dry and unhealthy. During the off-season, she would leave her skin completely clear of any makeup and so, she quickly learned the value of healthy skin.
Price Tag Means Nothing
Many women, and men, spend a lot of money on expensive skincare brands thinking they must be effective products if they cost a lot of money.
When Kim was in her mid-40 she started to notice that her skin was constantly dry, no matter how many layers of expensive cream she applied.
She soon discovered that there were many women in her age bracket who shared the same complaint about how inactive and inefficient their skincare products were, despite having spent a lot of money on them.
The Steps to Launch En Face
En Face is a French term which means “facing forward”. Kim adopted the name for the brand because it reminds her of her ballet background. In classical ballet the term “en face” means to face the front before or after movements.
At En Face we believe that it is what is in the jar that is important, not the beautiful packaging that you pay a fortune for! Kim began to research about the positive effects of cosmeceutical products their active ingredients, for example, vitamins, amino acids, peptides, and various antioxidant extracts.
Kim has completed a Diploma of Personal Care Formulation and a Diploma of Personal Care Development at the Institute of Personal Care Science in Queensland. Her mission this time was to learn all the facts that one needs to know to create a skincare brand, about cosmetic regulation, sourcing raw materials, types of packaging, and product safety testing.
After finishing her diploma Kim started to design and formulate her ideal range of products. Her mission was to create a brand that would help improve mature skin health and alleviate common skin complaints such as dry flaky skin, premature wrinkles as a result of sun damage, uneven skin tone, skin dullness, skin congestion, sensitive skin, and most importantly, I wanted my products to be formulated and delivered safely. Thus, the En Face Skincare range was born.
The En Face range of cosmeceutical skin care products have been especially formulated to meet the needs of maturing skin. Our creams and serums are made by hand with only the highest quality of ingredients. Our formulas contain the right active ingredients in the precise percentage required to restore natural skin health.
Our unique formulas are non-irritating and naturally hydrating, meeting the complex needs of aging skin.
We believe in healthier skin and natural beauty at every age.
