Winter Skincare Tips for Men

Winter Skincare Tips for Men

This winter has been a brutal one, filled with lots of snow, rain, winds, and cold temperatures. While the snow and rain don’t have much of an impact, those cold, frigid winds can leave our faces, lips, and skin burned out and extremely dry. The lack of humidity and artificial heat during the winter is also a culprit in the case for dry skin in the winter.

All these factors can leave our lips chapped and cracked, skin more susceptible to breakouts and a dull, rough complexion. If you are a big skier or outdoor enthusiast, all these winter symptoms can be much worse due to the extended duration of being outdoors. Even if you take care of your skin religiously all year long, winters can leave even the most prepared people struggling for relief.

The harsh months of winter must be combated with the right products and steps to help keep your skin looking fresh, hydrated, and protected. Here are some of the best skin care tips for winter.

5 Skin care tips for winter

  • True Natural Balms Are Great!
  • When the temperature drops, it’s important to switch your products out for balms and creams. If the ingredients in your cream are true natural it will help keep your skin moisturized, even in the harshest of conditions.
  • Caution: Avoid products that contain PEG, TEA, palmitic acid, glycols and other similar harmful ingredients - while they might shield the skin from the wind, they do not add any nourishing benefits for your skin and instead, they are linked to hormonal disruption, cancer-causing nitrates, headaches, skin irritations, allergic reactions, etc.
  • Restorative Oils
  • There are several types of overnight oils that will help repair your skin from a harsh day out in the elements. Utilizing the benefits of pure natural oils, like argan or squalene, to penetrate and repair your skin will help drastically during the winter months. If you are looking for something to specifically help with blemishes or inflammation, tea tree oil or similar all natural oils can be of great help.

  • Careful Shaving
  • Winter skin care also involves your body hair. If you have beard, in the winter, you should invest in some true natural beard oil and balm to help keep the hair moisturized throughout the day.

    If you are a clean-shaven fellow, a razor with “moisturizing” strip can have some damaging effects. Always shave with the grain, shower before shaving with warm water to help open the pores prior and apply cold water after shave to close the pores after; with the right razor you can avoid shaving creams, gels, and foams since most of them have very harmful and questionable ingredients that besides drying out our skin and doing harm to ourselves they do harm to our planet and wallet.

    One of the best ways to help keep your skin looking great is to try the Aqua Jet Razor.
