A Guide to a Minimalistic Winter Skincare Routine

Winters are just around the corner, and one must not forget to stay up to date with their minimalist winter skincare routine. If taking care of your skin is crucial, then choosing the right product to make that happen is also. Well, there is nothing better than including those made out of natural ingredients. A wide array of products are available in the market, and picking those that promote self-care is the best way to go forward with your winter skincare routine. 

As people face high-stress levels and manage heavy workloads, self care has taken a back seat. Practically, it sometimes becomes challenging to follow a lengthy skincare routine. This is where minimalist skincare comes into the picture. We have specially curated some of the easiest ways that will let you achieve your goal of everyday skincare regime. 

How to Plan Your Skincare Routine for Winter with VILASA?

A minimalistic skincare routine is all about taking care of the skin using only the essential products that benefit it in the long run. To make that happen, here are a few key points to keep in mind to go forward with the correct winter skincare routine for you: 

Use Milk Or A Cleanser 

Cleansing is the first and foremost step in the basic winter skincare routine. The type of cleanser one needs to use differs because of the different skin types. People with dry skin should use it just once a day. For oily skin, it is best to use it twice a day. Dry skin types must use cream-based cleansers, while oily or combination skin types must use gel-based ones. At VILASA, you can find the perfect cleansers, no matter the skin type. The VILASA Purifying Face Cleanser is appropriate for the skin as it is equipped with a non-drying formula that provides long-lasting hydration because of the Hyaluronic Acid. Add this product to your cart and get a lasting smoothening effect with a softer skin tone. 

Minimize Exfoliation

Exfoliation is the method of removing dead skin cells and improving blood circulation. It involves using a mild facial scrub. One can do exfoliation once or twice a week. Doing it more often may irritate the skin and lead to dryness. Apply slight pressure and rub with gentle strokes to get the best results. For example, VILASA caressing pods bath scrub will be a great addition to your basic skincare routine for winter. Suitable for all skin types, this is formulated with Coffee granules & Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil that helps fight blemishes and unveil an even skin tone. 

Include Skin-restoring Face oils

Oils such as apricot, almond, jojoba, walnut, etc., can also be included in the regimen, as they help in giving a healthy glow to the skin while replenishing it overnight. Following a winter skincare routine, one can opt for VILASA face oils, available for various purposes. For instance, VILASA Restoration Daily Face Oil is a good fit for daily skin care as it is 100% natural and created with Ayurveda-inspired formula. 

Pick The Right Cream

A cream protects the skin from drying out, they are different from lotions as they provide more oil content which makes them perfect for winter. There are two kinds of creams: one is day cream, and the other is night cream. Although there is little difference between them, they still give the needed results based on the time of application. Our facial skin is gentler so it needs more attention. Therefore we recommend a hydrating day cream (VILASA Purifying Day Cream) and for mature skin that needs more hydration, deep hydrating night cream (VILASA Age Defence Night Cream) is recommended. Face oils & natural apricot oil are also good substitutes to face creams and allow for deep hydration, naturally.

Body Butter is the Key 

Body butter is needed to keep nourishment and they are also apt for the dry winter season which is experienced by a large part of north India. They slather on the excessively dry skin areas and get up to 24 hours of silky smooth skin. It is a thick cream that deeply moisturizes and protects the skin from dryness. Opting for the best body butter is extremely important for getting nourishment to keep our skin moisturized and hydrated. VILASA offers Mridu Body Butter and Kashmir body butter that exudes deeply rich nourishment. Kashmiri body butter includes a blend of three oils: manjistha, almond, and aloe vera, and Mridu body butter is rich in Vitamin E which helps in softening the skin.

What are the Dos and Don'ts of Minimalistic Winter Skincare?

Take a look at some dos and don’ts of minimalistic skincare:


  • Choose the right products as per the skin type. 
  • Sunscreen is a must. It needs to be used after moisturizing.
  • A good serum must be applied to target skin problems like acne, wrinkles, and fine lines.
  • Use oils before sleeping, as they work overnight and heal the skin.


  • Exfoliating daily is not a good practice as it makes the delicate skin harsh.
  • Too many products like essences, toners, face mists, face masks, etc., need not be used frequently as they provide temporary results. Instead, it is best to use products like serums and oils as they give lasting results.
  • The beauty regimen should be minimal, so the results stay for a long time.

Since we have so much going around us daily, a lengthy skincare regime becomes difficult, especially in winter as we do not want to step out of the comfort zone of our cozy beds. However, it is needed to keep your skin healthy, nourished, and glowing in the winter. The most challenging task is not about having a routine but keeping up with one. The inconsistency leads to disappointing results, and one must keep in mind to be regular with their skincare ritual, that is practicing it daily. 

In addition, finding the right product for your skin is the key to getting the best results, and we at VILASA can make it happen for you.
