Your Skin Feels Dry and Itchy.....

With less moisture in the air, skin dries out and this can become uncomfortable. Using a moisturising cream everyday is the only way to combat this! 

Look for products with two main ingredients: a humectant, like hyaluronic acid to attract any little moisture in the air into your skin, and a barrier like shea butter, to keep the moisture there.

Your Skin Is Flaky.......

Using harsh exfoliants in winter will strip your skin of its natural oils. Instead, wash your body with a moisturising soap, and if you really feel the need to exfoliate, opt for mild exfoliating cleanse

Your Lips Are Chapped......

Your lips have no way of defending themselves against the cold: their protective layer of skin is among the thinnest on  the body and their only source of moisture is your saliva (however, licking them is the worst thing you can do)! Opt for a shea butter based lip balm formulation - or basically anything without menthol, which notoriously dries lips out.

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm With Shea Butter and Vitamin E, it even fits perfectly in your pocket!

You Want A Winter Beard.....

Use a trimmer every couple of days, to bring everything to a uniform length, and most importantly, keep an eye on your beard line: too far down your neck and you risk drawing to comparisons to "forest legends"! Too close to your jawline and....well you maybe be perceived as "uptight"! So, the sweet spot is about an inch above your adams apple.

You Don't Want A Winter Beard......

Much like exfoliating, shaving strips moisture, so use a shaving cream with the same humectants formulation (hyaluronic acid and shea butter) as in your moisturiser. After shaving, apply a thick layer of moisturiser to replenish your skin.

Caswell Massey Almond Moisturising Shave Cream is contains a a great blend of oils for those of you that are very dry post shaving.

You Look Bit Sallow.....

Although not for everyone, a subtle bronzer replaces winter pastiness with a healthy appearance! It mimics summer skin, some more naturally than others, Clinique For Men Face Bronzer is one of those! It is oil free, streak free, applies like a moisturiser (no colour) and is quickly absorbed into the skin.

 Shiseido For Men Moisturising Self Tanner is another easy to use product, the difference being, it has additional skincare benefits, like pigmentation reduction. Just remember to wash your hands, it may look and act like moisturiser, but it will leave the palms of your hands tanned!

You Want To Smell Nice......

Without the heat to activate the scent molecules, heavy fragrances stick close to your body, so winter is a safe time to wear bold woody or oriental colognes.
