Have you ever noticed how dry your skin gets during winter? You’re not alone. Over 60% of people report that they deal with dry, itchy or flaky skin when it gets cold. Harsh winds, extreme outdoor temps, dry air from indoor heaters, grocery store soaps full of harsh chemicals and forgetting to moisturize all affect our skin’s condition.
That means when it’s cold outside you don’t just need to change your wardrobe. You need to change your skincare routine.
Let us help you out.
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 Multi-Purpose Moisturizer will protect your face during the winter season. The Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and Green Tea Extract invigorate your skin and amp up your skin’s moisture barrier. You’ll be safe from any cold front or hot, dry air blowing from your heater because your wife is “cold-natured”.
It’s not just plant-based, it’s oil-free, so your skin will stay healthy all winter without having to deal with breakouts.
A Smarter Shower Routine
Your shower greatly affects 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 you take extremely hot showers. The longer you stay in the shower, the more protective oils you end up washing down the drain. Now we’re obviously not saying to skip showers altogether, but we do recommend aiming for them to be a little cooler and a little shorter.
Want healthy skin? Focus on what you're putting in your body as much as what you're putting on your body. Plant-based face washes and moisturizers are great, but if you're all you're drinking is coffee and carbonated sodas, you're going to look like the Crypt Keeper.
What do you need?
Water. Water. Water. We all know we need more of it, but it is especially important during the winter months. Drinking the recommended amount is essential to keeping your whole body hydrated.
Also, 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.
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.
No matter how much you moisturize, dead skin cells will continue to build up on your face. This is why exfoliating is a key addition to your skincare routine.
We’ve got two ways for you to exfoliate this winter (and all year long).
Our Silvertip Synthetic Shave Brush is one of the best ways we’ve found to gently exfoliate every time we shave. Using a brush to apply shaving cream sweeps away the dirt that builds up on the surface of your skin and around the hairs. Our Brush has thick but soft bristles that clean your skin while prepping your beard for a single edge shave. Use a circular motion to easily sweep off all those dead skin cells.
And now you can take your exfoliating to the next level with our Super Fresh Face Scrub. It’s filled with Mint, Green Tea extract and Aloe Vera to give you a tingly feeling as you deep clean your face. The biodegradable beads and coconut derived cleansers scrub away any stubborn oil, dirt and dead skin, leaving you looking and feeling super fresh.
It is a deeper clean, which means you should only use the scrub 2-4 times a week. Always follow up with a moisturizer. Exfoliating without using a moisturizer will only leave your skin more exposed to the harsh weather of the winter season.
