Winter skin woes include dryness, redness, flaking skin, and irritation. These problems are exacerbated by decreased humidity and increased central heating, which further dries out the air. We’ve rounded up our favorite skincare products for guys to keep his skin soft and healthy in winter.
Baxter of California Daily Face Wash
Guys need to wash their face twice a day since testosterone encourages oil production. Without a pre-bed cleansing, oil can transfer to his face and clog pores. Baxter of California Daily Face Wash is a great allover product that won’t dry out the face in winter, since it’s loaded with moisturizing aloe vera.
MALIN + GOETZ Jojoba Face Scrub
This earth-friendly exfoliating scrub takes care of winter dryness and it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin. He’ll say goodbye to dead skin and promote cellular renewal by cleansing with this a couple times a week. More frequent use isn’t recommended during winter, as it can dry out the face.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner
Facial toners aren’t just for women. Men who tone regularly can enjoy cleaner pores (which appear smaller) and balanced pH (which reduces skin problems). Men with oily skin should exfoliate daily after washing the face, while men who have normal or sensitive skin should do this every other day.
We love this Kiehl’s toner all year round, but especially in winter. Loaded with avocado and apricot oils, it moistures while balancing the skin pH.
Men+Care Ultra Hydrating Cream
This creamy, rich lotion is a year-round favorite for men with sensitive skin, but even guys who tend toward oily benefit from extra hydration during winter. This thick lotion traps moisture to keep his skin from flaking due to dryness.
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+
Sunscreen protects his skin all year round from UV rays, free radicals, and sun damage. We love this Kiehl’s formulation because it’s non-greasy, long-lasting, and loaded with antioxidant vitamin E. Make this the last step in his morning skincare routine to protect his skin from the elements.
By spending 15 minutes or less taking care of skin every day, guys can decrease dryness, redness, and flaking. Increasing humidity in the home through a humidifier can help his skin stay soft all winter long.
