January 18, 2021

It’s Just Routine:  The Best Winter Skincare Routine for You!

How important are routines? In a word, very important! As you likely already know, getting into a well-balanced routine can help you stay on target to meet your goals. Further, though, routines allow you to not waste time, feel accomplished, and actually see results. Routines are necessary for jobs, chores, exercise, even skincare.

Do you currently have a skincare routine in place? Is it effective? Most importantly, does it work for you and your specific skincare needs?

At Advanced Clinicals, we believe that skincare routines are vital year-round, but possibly even more so during winter months. That is if you are someone who lives where winter is an actual season. We’re referring to snow and ice, not weather slightly below 60 degrees. Sorry about it! Still, regardless of where you reside, the winter skincare routine we are about to share with you will prove to be beneficial and life-changing.

It goes without saying, the best winter skin care routine will leave you with hydrated skin, nourished skin, and looking and feeling your absolute best! That is exactly what our routine can—and will—do for you.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Look at that Glow!


Below, we’re sharing with you the easiest, most affordable, and highly effective skincare routine that will take your skin from drab to fab this winter season! Remember, sharing is caring, and Advanced Clinicals cares about you and your skin! Therefore, we’re sharing our secrets.

Are you ready for it?


Step 1: Cleanser

Wash your face, girl—or boy! Yes, the products offered at Advanced Clinicals are for both women and men.

The first step to taking care of your skin this winter is to clean it! And, in order to clean your skin effectively, we recommend using the Micro-Peel Cleanser from Advanced Clinicals. Designed for all skin types (again, for both women and men, too), this Glycolic Acid face wash is full of incentives, including the fact that it will free your pores from debris, ultimately achieving a fresh, smooth complexion.

And that’s just the beginning!

Specifically, this anti-aging face wash blends powerful naturals like apple extract, Damask rose, and Glycolic Acid to gently exfoliate, cleanse, and fight the signs of aging. Whether you have sensitive, dry, or oily skin, enlarged pores, or wrinkles, this affordable and easy-to-use acne face wash gently works wonders.

The best part: You can peel and cleanse in one simple step with Micro-Peel Cleanser from Advanced Clinicals.

As we stated above, the cleanser is easy-to-use: Simply massage over damp skin, avoiding both your eye area and the mouth. Rinse thoroughly and pat skin dry. Bonus tip: Once finished, you can quickly and easily follow with your favorite Advanced Clinicals serums and moisturizers for maximum benefits (or, keep reading to learn the rest of our recommended winter skincare routine). Use the cleanser once daily to start, and if tolerated by your skin, increase to twice a day. If dryness or flaking occurs, reduce frequency.

Step 2: Toner

The second step of our best winter skincare routine is all about toning! For you gym rats who have been busy pumping iron this new year, toning means something completely different in relation to achieving the best skincare. Don’t worry, though! We’ll bring you up to speed.

Once your face is officially clean, we recommend using Glycolic Acid Toner from Advanced Clinicals. This toner instantly hydrates and renews dry and dull skin with Watermelon, Apple, and Cucumber extracts. In addition, this gentle resurfacing toner features Aquaspheres to effectively boost moisture up to 88% instantly, and make your skin feel refreshed and revitalized.

But, wait . . . There’s more!

After using our Glycolic Acid Toner, your skin will feel tight, smooth, and hydrated, thanks to the Glycolic Acid and Vitamin E found in the product.

The best part is that this toner can be used any time—day or night—to provide a soft, hydrated finish to the skin. Finally, we think everyone reading this will want to know that this lightweight mist won’t leave behind a heavy or oily residue—not always an easy find on the marketing today.

Because we know that convenience is important when it comes to getting into a comfortable skincare routine, we are happy to share that using our Glycolic Acid Toner is simple: Just shake well. Then, use after cleansing on clean, dry skin. Spray toner onto cotton pad or fingertips before applying directly onto face (with eyes and mouth closed). Dab over the face and neck until the skin is completely covered. As always, follow with your favorite Advanced Clinicals serums or moisturizers.

Pretty easy, right? Ready to start toning? Wait! We've got more steps in our routine to share with you!

Step 3: Serum

Do you have a favorite serum? We think you will after reading this!

At Advanced Clinicals, we know and fully understand how difficult it can be to find a serum you like, a serum that works for you and your skin tone. Therefore, we are so happy to share with you our Vitamin C Serum. Because, honestly, who can’t benefit from a little Vitamin C?

Specifically, our Vitamin C Serum is an anti-aging, potent serum that targets skin tones. These strong yet safe ingredients work synergistically for effective absorption into the skin. Our highly advanced Vitamin C Serum will instantly feel hydrating and therapeutic on your skin.

In addition, this serum is intensely restorative and promotes a firmer-looking complexion. Found within the serum is Ferulic Acid, which supports a luminous, youthful radiance that targets imperfections for a more uniform looking skin tone.

But, we’ve saved the best for last: Our Vitamin C Serum targets dark spots, uneven tones, and expression lines. It even helps to brighten your skin. What could be better? Oh, one last thing: it is Non-Irritating, and both Dermatologist and Allergy Tested.

When it comes to actually using the Vitamin C Serum from Advanced Clinicals, we recommend using it after cleansing the face. First, gently pat the product onto the skin, focusing on all of the areas that are most problematic. Then, simply wait several minutes for the serum to absorb. Finally, follow with your favorite moisturizer. This serum can be used daily—morning and night—depending on your preference.

Step 4: Eye Serum

Did 2020 take a toll on you? Specifically, your eyes? Regardless of the various makeup and beauty secrets floating around today, it’s difficult to mask stressed, worried, and/or tired eyes. It’s also common for the eyes—well, the area surrounding the eyes—to show a person’s true age.

But, you’re in luck: Advanced Clinicals has the ultimate solution! It also happens to be affordable, effective, and easy to use!

Specifically, the 5-in-1 Eye Serum from Advanced Clinicals instantly hydrates skin while diminishing the look of dark circles, bags, puffiness, lines, and crepey eyelids. Or, all of the negative effects caused by 2020. It also helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet.

Further, our 5-in-1 Eye Serum utilizes Plant Collagen, Manuka Honey, Collodial Gold, and K3 Vitamin C to target five signs—all at once—making your eyes look visibly renewed. Specifically, the Plant Collagen dramatically improves elasticity to fight tired, saggy eyes. And, it is safe to say that almost all of us have tired, saggy eyes—for one reason or another. It's even safer to assume that no one likes having tired, saggy eyes.  

When it comes to using our 5-in-1 eye serum, the steps are simple: Apply in small amounts around the eye area and gently smooth until thoroughly absorbed. Feel free to use twice daily, alone, or under makeup.

Step 5: Face Cream

Face! Face! Face!

Congrats, you’ve made it this far! You’ve reached the fifth and final step of our winter skincare routine. Give yourself a round of applause, though, the real prize is the routine. Seriously, once you start implementing these winter beauty products into your life, you won't be able to stop. These plant-based skincare essentials will leave you wondering what you've been subjecting your skin to this entire time.

Specifically, though, the Encapsulated Retinol Gel Face Cream from Advanced Clinicals targets wrinkles, sun damage, large pores, and discoloration. Both powerful and hydrating, it absorbs instantly into the skin, leaving your face looking full, replenished, and youthful.

Further, this product is a light, encapsulated Retinol that remains potent and highly effective in a water-based gel-cream. While it is boosted with a potent slug of Retinol, it is still relatively light and gentle. This skincare product offers everything you want, need, and expect out of a Retinol cream, but in a much lighter, smoother texture. It’s also 100% Clean Beauty, Paraben-Free, Alcohol-Free, Phthalate-Free, Fragrance-Free, and made in the USA.

Using the product is easy, too! We recommend using our Encapsulated Retinol Gel Face Cream in the evening before you go to bed. When using, apply evenly to your face and neck after cleansing. If you are using a serum in your routine, apply this cream afterward. Or, as the routine shows, apply it last.

Ready! Set! Glow!


Are you ready to have the skin you’ve been dreaming about your entire life? Advanced Clinicals is thrilled to make that dream a reality. And, the reality can take form just as soon as you begin implanting the above products and skincare routine into your daily regimen.

There are many incentives as to why using winter beauty products from Advanced Clinicals is a no-brainer. Of course, we’ve already mentioned convenience, affordability, and effectiveness. We also think it’s extremely important to note that these plant-based skincare products are safe, reliable, and one-of-a-kind.

We know how important it is to use a product that will not irritate your skin or create additional problems for you. That is why all of the products offered by Advanced Clinicals, including the ones mentioned above, have been carefully and expertly blended, ensuring ultimate results. You can see this, as we have openly shared our ingredient lists with you. We have absolutely nothing to hide.

Now, you can stray from the routine detailed above. You can even interchange products, choose various cleansers, toners, etc. from Advanced Clinicals. That’s another benefit to choosing our green skincare products: the options are literally limitless.

However, we do believe—and know from experience—that when you use the products listed above, in the order and manner recommended, you will notice immediate, long-lasting results. Effective skin care can be tricky, but not when you let us assist you with the process.

So, if you’re still on the fence if our winter skincare routine is for you, simply ask yourself one question: What kind of skin do you want to achieve?
