1. Take a Quick Shower

As much as we all love a long hot shower after a cold and hard days at work. It’s not doing wonders for your skin – the hot water strips the skin from its natural oils and will cause your skin to dry out quicker. So turn the heat down, reduce the time and make sure you moisturise after.

2. Moisturise more often

The best time to moisturise in winter is at night, just before going to bed. This is because at night your skin is on full repair mode and will absorb the moister much more than it would during the day. The most important part to moisturise has to be your face, as the cold has been attacking it all day. We suggest investing in some good creams – check out Jack Black for everything you’ll need. Don’t forget to cream behind your beard too! This will stop it getting dry and flaking.

3. Drink more water

This one might be stating the obvious, but many men forget that water is just as important for your skin in the winter as it is in the summer. It’s really easy to opt for a hot tea or coffee to keep us warm in the winter – but this isn’t the same as drinking water. Keep your water topped up at all times and it will do wonders for your skin.

4. A Close Shave

We all know how important your beard is to you, but a close shave once in a while is just what your face needs to look and feel healthy. A close shave will open up your pours and make your skin much healthier. You’ll thank us once that beard grows back nicer and softer.

5. Don’t forget your lips

Your lips need a lot more help in the winter, unlike your skin your lips don’t produce any natural oil. So make sure you invest in a good quality lip balm – go for Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream and you’ll be sorted – chapped lips are very unattractive and will get quite sore too.
