It’s not enough to invest in a few men’s skin care products and treatments and expect them to perform well all the year. So, in between meetings you’re outside in the cold, with wind pouring against your face. Then very suddenly, you’re in the extreme warmth of your office or home, with internal heating turned up. So this situation makes you skin bad and you might not feel comfortable in such heavy season. Even for those who maintain a good home care regime, if you’re not using the right products, skin dries out very quickly. Signs of dehydrated skin include tightness, flaking and fine lines.
The skin reacts strongly to these sudden changes in temperature, with fast evaporation of hydration from the skin’s surface. in winters, try to choose and use men’s skin care products wisely. What’s more is that because we try to warm ourselves, we consume more hot drinks, such as coffee, replacing the hydrating qualities of water.
Avoid Long Hot Showers
Well during the shower in winters, we turn the temperature up high. This thing not only strips the skin of its moisture, but can lead to broken vessels. It stands to reason then that men’s skin becomes dehydrated during winter. So, always in winter use the warm water instead of hot water for bath.
Carefully Choose Face-Wash
Look for hydrating solutions rather than a bog-standard face wash. As temperatures drop, so does your skin’s ability to retain water, which means your summer face wash is useless in this season. So, look for alcohol and soap-free face wash. Try to choose the formulations, which should be packed with antioxidants and skin-saving ingredients like vitamin E.
During winter time, use a light face scrub, rather than the grooming equivalent of sandpaper. Despite the untold benefits of the rough stuff, it is possible to over-exfoliate, stripping the skin of essential oils and leaving it exposed to winter’s chill. In winter, be gentle with your skin and only use after every three or four days.
If your skin is very oily, use a toner every day or every other day. Otherwise, have a few days off between use and sub in a serum to make your routine. Serums are made up of smaller molecules than moisturizers, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin and deliver extra hydration and antioxidant protection.
