Ceramic top up for winter

I have a ceramic coating on my car which is still performing well. During the summer months I just use a pH neutral shampoo to wash it weekly/fortnightly and that keeps it looking great.

I'm concerned over the winter, I won't be able to wash it as often so I am looking for the best option for topping it up in an effort to keep it cleaner for longer over the winter. I want something that won't compromise the coating and is easy to apply. Ideally spray on rinse off, what do you recommend? Been looking at Gyeon wetcoat and Carpro Hydro2. Are these OK to use on a ceramic coating?

Something like Gyeon Wetcoat will be a suitable top up.

Shouldn't need to top it up, let the coating do its job over winter. Personally I would just make sure I'm using the best shampoo for that coating.

Cheers for the advice, will continue to wash it with a pH neutral pure shampoo and see how it holds up over winter

My advice is to chemicly decontaminate the paint and the coating ( iron and tar removers which are coating safe) and that should refresh the coating hydrophobic properties and should keep your car cleaner for longer in winter.
