We’ve all woken up on a cold winter morning, peered through our curtains and decided that getting back into our warm beds is the best option. But sooner or later you’re going to have to tackle the cold. And when you reach this moment, it’s important to make sure that your grooming routine is as prepared for the season as you are.
Exfoliate your skin
The cold temperatures outside naturally create warmer temperatures inside, especially as you enter a building and they’ve turned the heating up. The results of these temperature changes and the dry heat, is that it sucks all of the good moisture from your body and leaves your skin feeling dehydrated and irritable. The quickest and best way to tackle this is to scrub away the dry, dead cells with regular exfoliation.
Dandruff is more common during winter! The colder climate tends to dry your scalp out at an alarming rate and, the excessive shampooing and conditioning might actually be making it worse. Rather than washing your hair on a daily basis, use shampoo every other day to allow your hair to find its natural balance with regards to essential oils. This will help to protect it from the weather, while stopping your scalp from drying out quite so quickly and by using conditioner once a week, you keep your hair healthy and soft.
It’s not uncommon for men to grow out their facial fuzz just for the annual freeze. Once your masterpiece has sprouted, be sure to keep it safe from the cold by conditioning it with barber-grade beard oils. These elixirs help to replenish the essential oils that are often stripped from facial hair during excessive exposure to harsh weather.
Make sure you take the time to wash your beard too; using a shampoo and conditioner that’s specifically formulated for facial hair. This will help to soften the hair, while also treating the skin underneath. It’ll also help to keep beardruff at bay.
