The wait is over! Winter is here, and it’s time to get your skin care regimen updated to winter-proof your skin. Protecting your skin is important, no matter what weather it may be. While taking care of your skin matters at any time, winter calls for some extra attention. The winter chills tend to be pretty harmful to your skin. Taking care of your skin during the cold weather is not as hard as it may seem. Follow this simple skin care routine for winter skincare and get glowing skin even in winters.
1. Use a Face & Body Wash :
Men’s winter skin care is not a difficult task. Let’s start with the wash. Your face tends to get dry and dirty, and just washing with plain water is not enough. But avoid using a bar of soap that you use on your body since it can be too harsh on your facial skin. Instead, you can get a face wash that is more gentle on your skin. Lather up the washes before you rinse it off, to ensure that it cleans your body. You can even use a loofah or some scrubs to get rid of the dead skin.
2. Exfoliate Regularly :
As mentioned above, exfoliation is very important, especially when winter is around the corner. In order to help your skin produce new skin cells, it is important to exfoliate and get rid of the dead skin on the top layers of your skin. Exfoliating can remove dirt and flaky skin on the surface and reduces dryness and itchiness that is a common problem during winters. Gently massaging your skin with a facial scrub around your face and neck before rinsing clean can get rid of dead and dry skin.
3. Moisturize Generously :
Now after wash and exfoliation, you must not forget to moisturize your skin. If moisturizing your skin is not already a part of your winter skincare routine, then you must ensure to make it apart now. Pick an extra hydrating moisturizer, with winter that will help you fight the winter winds. The cold winds outside can leave your skin feeling dry and prone to discomfort, in that case, a moisturizing product will not only save your skin but give it a youthful glow.
4. Try Hydrating Face Masks :
I know face masks might not sound very manly right now, but trust me on this. Try it, and you will love it! A good face mask can be your savior from all winter woes. Pick a face pack based on your skin’s nature. If you have dry skin, a heavy moisture can be good, but if you have oily skin, pick something that does not clog the pores. A hydrating and soothing face pack can help your skin face the cold climate.
5. Cover Your Skin :
Same goes for every weather. Try to shelter your skin from outside pollutants, as it can only cause breakouts and other skin issues. But with winter, another problem is exposure to cold winds. You can avoid that by using a scarf or gloves, and warm clothing to keep your skin warm and cozy. Take a jacket along whenever you step out, and moisturize and stay in layers even indoors. This way your body can maintain its natural moisture even during winters.
Special Care For Men :
Above mentioned are a few tips that can keep you rocking it even during the cold weathers. But since men have more facial and body hair, you might be in need of some of these extra tips for winter skincare. This is something you might have missed out, but it helps to follow it :
- Identify your skin! Yes, that’s right you need to recognize your skin type and accordingly go for products that will suit your skin type. Everyone has different skin types that require different treatments. Once you get to know your skin it will be easier for you to pick products from the market.
- Groom your beard regularly, Taking proper care of your facial hair is a mandatory part of men’s winter skincare regimen. Get some beard washes and make sure to keep your facial hair clean or trimmed at all times. And be careful with your tools when you shave since your skin tends to be more tender and sensitive during the winters and can cause a nick.
With these basic tips are in your bag, you can enjoy the winter season without having to worry too much about losing that supple glow from your face. And also don’t forget to internally keep your body hydrated with water and foods for winter as that is also a part of winter skincare.
