Winter Skincare Tips For Men

Happy Monday lovelies and welcome the return of Manic Makeup Monday! The Makeup Examiner is yet convinced that men understand the importance (and actual enjoyment) of “luxury” grooming, let alone the basics of skincare. That’s not to stay that men folk are stupid, I believe that it’s a simple issue of not necessarily knowing what to do. My office is fairly well stocked with beauty/grooming products and it’s rather endearing when my “manly-man” brother comes into visit, pokes around and slyly asks what a particular men’s grooming product is for.
As usual, I digress. Winter temperatures and decreased humidity can leave your skin super dry. So, if you don’t currently have a skincare regime, now is as good a time as any to begin one. A skincare regime is seriously simple and you’re going to look and feel better once you begin one.

For starters, resist the temptation to take long, hot showers. Those showers may feel fantastic while you’re in there, but they’re actually hydration stealers. Limit your shower to no more than 15 minutes and keep the temperature warm. After your shower, you need to get moisture back into your skin. Suave puts out a line of excellent, fast-absorbing body moisturizers that run about $5 for a 32-ounce bottle.

Shaving can become an issue during the winter and soap should not be the “shaving cream” of choice ever, but most especially during the cold months. Edge Shave Gel for Sensitive Skin ($2.50 7.0 oz) is great product for you to take a little extra care of that oh-so-handsome face! A little Beauty Insider News just for the guys, Schick Hydro is doing a new product launch Winter 2013! For guys that are already adept at shaving and want to learn about luxury grooming products, check out The Art of Shaving and EVOLUTIONMAN!

You only get one face, so you gotta take care of your skin. Even if the sun isn’t on your mind at the moment, the sun’s UV rays can be substantially stronger in the winter, especially when they’re bouncing off the snow. Take care to use a moisturizer that contains SPF 20, like EVOLUTIONMAN’s Moisture Protect SPF 20 (2.75 oz $25.00). The same goes for that gorgeous pout. I have everyone addicted to Blistex Moisture Melt SPF 15 ($1.90 per tube) and Blistex Deep Lip Renewal SPF 15 ($2.99) for really chapped lips.
