Men’s Winter Skin Care
Cold temperatures and harsh winds can spell disaster for your skin. These tips will help your skin fight back against the elements.
Cleanse Your Skin With a Gentle Face Wash
Get a gentle, cream-based cleanser that can hydrate your skin while removing unwanted impurities. After you work out, make sure to cleanse your skin immediately after sweating if you can’t shower right away. Cleanser or face wipes can be stored in your gym bag for easy access.
Often the reason for dull-looking skin has to do with a buildup of dead cells on the surface which prohibit the light from reflecting off the skin. Put your best face forward by shedding away those dead cells through exfoliating.
Mind Your Shaving Or Take Care Of Your Beard
After cleansing, apply a soothing and hydrating shaving cream. Use short strokes, glide your razor in the direction of hair growth. Rinse with lukewarm water before the next stroke and steer clear from going over any areas more than once. If you choose to keep your beard, using beard oil will not only nourish your beard during this cold, drying time of year, but it will also nourish the skin beneath.
Hydrate Your Lips
‘Tis the season for finding yourself beneath the mistletoe, which means you’ll want to keep your lips hydrated and looking their best. Stock up on your favorite lip balm and use it liberally throughout the day.
