The cold winter weather takes a toll on every person, especially when it comes to their skin. Generally speaking, winter is a season with a unique set of challenges for skin care and time when cold and dry air as well as constantly running heaters makes the skin dry and rough.
Aside from its unpleasant looks, dry skin also feels uncomfortable. In times like these, every man needs to remember that the skin is an organ and just like any other organ and its cells, the skin cells are primarily made up of water.
When the skin is dehydrated, the organ does not function as well as it would with plenty of water. That is why below, we are listing the best ways to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh.
Exfoliate Your Skin
The first step that men need to take is to exfoliate their skin during the colder months. Removing dead skin cells from the surface is very important. Ideally, you would want to find exfoliating products that contain glycolic acid which helps to breakdown cell bonds and makes it easier to remove dead skin and debris that is accumulated in your skin.
The best way to exfoliate is to use a regular facial cleanser and wash using a washcloth. Just apply light pressure and practice circular motions and stick to this routine once or twice per week.
Once you started practicing the art of exfoliating and removed some dead surface cells, the next step is to moisturize your skin. The ideal way to do this is to apply a moisturizer.
However, you should know that there are different types of moisturizers. Depending on your skin type. You should choose one that won’t irritate the skin and will lead to more oil production. The best way, obviously, is to talk to your dermatologist and figure out which one is right for you.
Believe it or not, sunscreen is also essential for men in the winter months. Just like the days at the beach, you should use an agent with SPF and remember sun protection - especially if you are in the mountains.
The best way to combine some of your skincare steps is to use a moisturizer that contains SPF 30 or higher. Even if you already use a moisturizer of that kind, it won’t be bad to carry around a bottle of sunscreen during your ski trips or days spent under the sun.
If you are a fan of close shaves, you should know that during winter, your skin may suffer just because of your shaving routine. Additionally, you should know that the best time to shave is immediately following a hot shower as this will help and open up your pores.
If this is not an option, you should apply a hot washcloth to your face for a few minutes just before you start shaving and in that way open up your pores.
