How to Protect your Face this Winter

Winter should bring a change not only to your wardrobe, but also your skin routine. We're here to help discuss these changes and how to reduce and prevent dry skin.

Have you ever noticed that as the temperature drops your skin gets more and more dry? You’re not alone. Most people will, at some point, experience dry, flaky, and itchy skin due to many factors associate with this time of year. Harsh winds, dry air from indoor heaters, soaps full of harsh chemicals and a lack of moisturization all affect our skin's condition.

Winter should bring a change not only to your wardrobe, but also your skin routine. We're here to help discuss these changes and how to reduce and prevent dry skin.

Hydrating Body Lotion

Moisturize

The simplest way to protect your skin against the harsh environment factors is by using moisturizers. High-quality lotions, moisturizers and creams are fantastic for hydrating your skin while locking in moisture.

Our botanically-based Hydrating Body Lotion nourishes and protects your skin to help reduce the signs of premature aging. It features triple filtered shea butter, aloe vera, and acai oil to keep skin healthy, hydrated, and refreshed.

Shower Routine

A Smarter Shower Routine

Your shower can greatly affect the condition of your skin. Most people think that a hot, steamy shower will add hydration to their skin. Sounds logical, right? Shower, steam, hydration - how could it not?

Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Skin hydration is linked to the protective oils your body naturally produces. These oils are usually lost when one takes extremely hot showers. The longer you stay in the shower, the more protective oils you end up throwing away. Now we’re obviously not saying to skip showers altogether, but we do recommend to aim for them to be a little cooler and a little shorter.

Water

Hydrate

Water. Water. Water. We all know we need to be doing it, but it is especially important during the winter months. Drinking water in recommended amounts is essential to keeping your whole body hydrated.

Also important, water is needed to make the protective oils that your body naturally produces to keep your skin nice and hydrated. The average person should aim to drink about a gallon of water every day. Drink up, my friend.

Sunscreen

Sunscreen

No summer rays. No sunscreen needed. No problem. False! Any dermatologist will tell you that protecting your skin against UV damage is important year round. Sun damaged skin is easily agitated and dried out. Plus, it speeds up the process for wrinkles and premature aging.

So when life takes you outdoors, protect your face by using a high SPF sunscreen with all natural ingredients. Your future skin will thank you.

Exfoliate

Exfoliate

No matter how much you moisturize, dead skin cells will continue to accumulate on your face. This is why exfoliation is a key step that should be a consistent part of  your skin care routine.

We recommend exfoliating as part of your shave routine by using a high quality shave brush to apply shaving cream to the face. Our Silvertip Synthetic Brush is designed with soft, thick bristles that easily exfoliates your skin while prepping your beard for your shave. The circular motions used during application easily sweep off all of your unwanted dead skin cells.
