Don’t Skip The Cleanser
Cold weather is no excuse to skip this step, as dry skin is prone to flakiness. Use a gentle, soap-free cleanser to get rid of dead skin and make your moisturizer sink in that much better. Try The Body Shop Vitamin E Gentle Face Wash with wheat germ oil.
Opt For A Richer Moisturizer
The tried-and-tested product you’ve been using all summer might not cut it in winter – consider going for a balmy consistency for your day cream, like Neutrogena Men Triple Protect Face Lotion Cream with SPF 20. Alternatively, add a few drops of Jojoba oil to your regular moisturizer – it’s unscented, natural and it works great as a beard conditioner!
Masks On The Side
Find a bit of downtime in the evening after a chilly day out to relax and replenish. While you’re watching your favorite show, apply a soothing facial mask – we recommend Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack. Sheet masks are not just for girls, your skin will appreciate it for sure!
Despite all your best efforts, you still wake up with dry, tight feeling skin? Try adding an extra step in the form of a nourishing serum overnight – The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% In Squalane provides added anti-aging benefits as well. Just add a few drops before your moisturizer and pat it into your skin lightly.
Careful With The Trim
If you shave regularly, it’s crucial to take care of any cuts and micro-tears that might happen. The easiest prevention is using a shaving cream – to help the razor glide smoothly, add a luxurious balm to your routine, such as LUSH Dirty Shaving Cream with honey and shea butter.
One of the things where prevention is the key is chapped lips – you really want to avoid them, as they are slow to heal, especially in the winter! Make sure you pop a small tube of lip balm into your pocket, such as the all-natural Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm.
With all that said, consider these tips and tricks and try them out to get ready for those snowy, freezing winter months!
