Even if you are not the type of guy who follows a regular skin care regime, making some efforts goes a long way! Along with a positive attitude, sense of style and good fragrance, personal hygiene and grooming are imperative to a man’s personality. And this is where most men lag. They either have no clue how to take care of their skin or avoid it, thinking of it as something only women need.
In winters, soap, shampoo, a little shaving cream and a fragrant aftershave is not enough in the name of skin care. Blackheads, beard rashes, wrinkles and blotches won’t make themselves go away. You must take care of your skin. Not sure where to start? Relax! Let us take care of that.
Activities For Healthy Skin This Winter
1. Cleanser Instead of Soap
Regular soaps contain incredibly harsh chemicals that dry skin up and it is a known fact that dry skin is more prone to ageing and breakouts. Rinsing the skin with water isn’t enough because water can’t wash away the dirt, sebum, sweat and other malicious air pollutants that come in contact with the skin. A gentle cleanser that matches your skin type can be used daily. We recommend O3+ Men Tea Tree Mela Derm Cleansing Gel (Pack of 2). It moisturizes the skin and protects it from sagging, discoloration and other damage.
2. Exfoliating Scrub
Exfoliation is a universally important step in skin care that should never be ignored. The dirt and the sweat clog the pores and mix with the sebum to cause blackheads and pimples. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and reveals healthy skin. It also makes way for a great shave by making the hair follicles prominent. We recommend O3+ Men Ice Cool Acne-Blemish Control scrub. This is a refreshing Antibacterial & Anti Inflammatory scrub, formulated with Tea Tree oil to help moisturize & exfoliate the skin. Generally suitable for oily skin type, it leaves a clean & bright complexion.
3. Moisturizing and Sunscreen
Men think that having somewhat stronger skin makes them immune to the harmful effects of the Sun. Many men are outdoor enthusiasts and leaving the skin without sunscreen is not advisable. Shaving and washing steals skin’s moisture. Moisturizing afterwards is extremely important in winters. Keeping both in mind, we recommend BOTTEGA DI LUNGAVITA VITA AGE WHITENING FACE MOISTURIZER SPF 20 SKIN TONE LIGHTENER. It works as moisturizer and sun screen with SPF 30.
Low Humidity levels in winter dry your hair and chemical based shampoos leads to hair fall and dandruff. Using a mild and gentle shampoo in winters is of utmost importance to have silky smooth tresses. We recommend Khadi Natural Herbal Amla and Bhringraj Shampoo With its ultra-light crystalline formula enriched with styling agents, it allows to give body and volume to the hair, even fine hair without weighing the hair.Paraben-free. Hypoallergenic.
5. Lip Balm
Lips’ skin is more vulnerable to cracking, this time of the year. It’s simple to understand that lip balm is not just for women. There are plenty of balms that moisturize lips and provide all day long protection. Our lip balm of choice, for men, is Natio Aromatherapy Moisturising Lip Balm SPF 30+. It prevents dryness and treats chapped lips.
6. Gentle Aftershave
Shaving is a tough job and every man wants to be a pro at it. Lathery shaving creams take away moisture from the skin, leaving it itchy and flaky, making shaving harder in winters. To make the most of shaving, oil-based aftershave gels are prescribed. We recommend The Nature’s Co Watermint After Shave Balm to the hunks as it restores the natural moisture of the skin.
7. Hand and Foot Cream
The skin on your hands and feet needs to be moisturized properly in winters. Save yourself the embarrassment and start using a good, moisturizing cream. Natural Bath & Body Foot And Hand Cream is among the best in our collection for this purpose. A fusion of organic lemon and chamomile oils has strong anti-bacterial properties that repair cracked skin on hands and feet and prevent scaling.
