10 winter grooming essentials every man needs
The winds are changing and fall is here. With everything green going into hibernation mode, we humans have to redouble our efforts to take care of chapped lips, dry skin and puffy eyes. So, how do you give winter a run for its money? Simple. Just ensure your trusty grooming essentials are by your side through this season of bitter winds and grey days. We get you ten winter grooming essentials that you will love us for.
Winter shaves are a nightmare. With skin as dry as sandpaper, you dread those ingrown hairs that need the persuasion of tweezers. Invest in a pre-shave scrub or exfoliator that removes dead skin cells and readies skin for close shaving. Try the Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Pre-Shave Oil or Natio for Men Purifying Face Scrub.
No ordinary shaving cream is going make the cut when you are battling winter. You need one that will moisturize your skin, keeping it healthy and smooth. For those very reasons we suggest Kiehl’s Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream-White Eagle.
Skin care doesn’t end at stubble-free skin. Post-shave, your pores are exposed and open. A post-shave oil or gel works wonders at closing your facial skin pores and keeping them fresh and rejuvenated. Kiehl’s Post Shave Repair Gel or Iraya After Shave Gel with Tea Tree serves the purpose well.
Exfoliation is recommended twice or thrice a week. So how do you take care of your face for the rest of the week? A basic cleanser is the answer. It helps your pores get rid of impurities, leaving them clean and lends a healthy glow to your skin minus the dryness. O3+ Agelock Balance Purifying Cleansing Foam is the one we have our eyes on.
Now that you’ve done your scrubbing and cleansing, it is time for the last part of essential winter skin care regime: moisturising. As men, your skin tends to be harder to maintain, with dryness as easy to come as Monday. So do not ignore the moisturizer calls from Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Fuel.
Puffy under eye bags are not a pretty sight. Add on some dark circles and you are spelling disaster for sure. Avoid the shoddy mirror reflection with Khadi’s Herbal Under Eye Gel that effectively fights all signs of eye fatigue and takes supreme care of sensitive under-eye skin.
Your face maybe your charming asset but the rest of your body requires equal care. For the very same reason, hook up with a body wash that not only cleanses but is induced with moisturising properties. We suggest Natio for Men Spice of Life Body Wash.
No, it’s not the same as the lipstick and no, it does not make you any less masculine if you treat your chapped lips with a lip balm. Take cue from our very own John Abraham. Give your dry lips some love with Garnier Men the Ultimate Protective Lip Balm.
Your hair is subjected the most to the harsh cold and sudden heat. To keep it protected the basic essential is a conditioner. If you have dry hair, make sure you use a shampoo fit for your hair type and then couple it up with Toni & Guy Nourish: Conditioner for Dry Hair. If your damaged hair needs salvaging, set it up with Toni & Guy Nourish: Conditioner for Damaged Hair.
This is not similar to getting manicures. Cuticle cream amounts to taking care of the skin around your nail that tends to face quite a few rugged moments during the day. Not just a winter grooming staple, we recommend Aloe Veda Hand and Cuticle Moisturizing Cream for all-year round nail care.
Winters can be rough. But if you have your grooming arsenal up and ready, you might as well embrace the cold with some hot chocolate. Comment below if you found these products useful!
