Strong winds, sub-zero temperatures and artificial heat, these features of winter can be catastrophic for your skin.
If you can’t escape the inconveniences of winter, you can make sure your skin is prepared to withstand the elements.
Winter skin care for men isn’t just about applying a moisturizer to combat the drying effects of near-freezing temperatures.
Here are some essential winter skin care tips to follow to ensure your skin will withstand the cold season.
Clean your skin:
Your skin comes into contact with pollution, dirt, and impurities every day that, if left on the skin’s surface, can wreak havoc like pimples, blackheads, and other blemishes.
To completely remove dirt from the skin’s surface before it clogs your pores, be sure to cleanse your skin morning and night.
Look for a gentle cleanser that doesn’t completely destroy your skin’s hydrolipidic film while removing unwanted impurities.
If you are a sports fan, be sure to cleanse your skin immediately after sweating, if you can’t take a shower right away.
You can do this with your favorite cleanser, facial cleansing wipes, or a leave-in cleanser.
Keep them in your gym bag for easy access.
Exfoliate your skin regularly:
Aside from dryness, one of winter’s biggest skin problems is its dull appearance .
Dull skin is often due to a buildup of dead cells on the surface that prevent light from reflecting off the skin.
Therefore, it is important to regularly exfoliate your skin to remove dead cells.
Apply a rejuvenating cream:
A rejuvenating cream is a great way to maintain a smooth, hydrated, and youthful appearance.
Choose a rejuvenating treatment that preserves the skin’s elasticity, deeply moisturizes it and reduces the effects of time .
Cellex-C’s Ageless 15 rejuvenating treatment is composed of a patented formula, containing ginger extract, lemon caviar, Marula seed oil and a combination of tripeptides and lipopeptides.
An effective cocktail to help strengthen and protect the skin’s moisture barrier.
Avoid showers that are too hot:
When it’s cold, we all like to take hot showers to warm up.
Although it feels good on our skin, water that is too hot can actually strip the skin’s natural oils and cause it to dry out.
Opt for shorter lukewarm showers.
Moisturize your lips:
The skin of the lips is quite thin and when it is cold it tends to dry out quickly.
Therefore, it is important to regularly moisturize the lips with a moisturizing stick or bottled balm.
Apply beard oil:
Do you think that your beard is not part of your skin care routine?
Using a beard oil will not only nourish your beard during this cold and dry time of year, but it will also nourish your skin.
Don’t forget the eye area:
The eye contour is a fragile area of the face, so it must be taken care of throughout the year, but more especially during the winter.
This is all the more important since the first signs of aging usually appear in this area.
Applying a special eye cream will help your face look younger.
Apply a mask:
Men should also apply a face mask from time to time.
Especially in winter when the skin needs more hydration.
Preferably use a mask with an ultra-hydrating formula to combat winter dryness.
If your skin is prone to razor burn, chances are you’re shaving incorrectly.
Apply a moisturizing shaving cream or foam, pass the razor first in the direction of the hair and if necessary in the opposite direction during a second pass.
Rinse with lukewarm water and use a soothing aftershave balm.
