Essential Tips for Dry Skin

by Jeffery Racheff

Cold weather is the mortal enemy of healthy skin. It can dry you out, cause flakiness and discomfort, and have you wishing you flew south for the winter.

But with the right care and products, you can keep your skin hydrated and your scalp healthy throughout the colder months. We’ve compiled a few tips and recommendations for guys looking to combat winter dryness – and save you the cost of that flight to Rio.

  

How Winter Impacts Your Skin and Scalp

 

Low temperatures (and low humidity levels) can strip your skin and scalp of their natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation. It may even exacerbate skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. To make matters worse, indoor heating can further deplete moisture from the air, aggravating these issues. 

So what can you do to brave the environmental challenges of winter and put your skin in a win-win situation?

Upgrade Your Skincare Routine

 

Hydrate

Switch to a more hydrating moisturizer during the winter months. Look for products containing hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides, which help lock in moisture and repair the skin barrier. 

A perfect example: our Daily Face Moisturizer. It’s our top-of-the-line lotion, packed with Naturally Derived Ingredients that put hydration back where it belongs.


Cleanse

Use a mild, hydrating cleanser that doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils. Avoid hot water, which can further dry out your skin, and opt for lukewarm water instead.

For the best clean, get our Daily Face Cleanser. It’ll nourish your skin while Coconut-derived Surfactants remove dirt and oil.


Exfoliate

A gentle scrub of your pores can help remove dead skin cells, helping to clear your skin of dirt, debris, and winter buildup. Just make sure not to overdo it with too much force.

Our Daily Face Scrub includes ingredients like Jojoba Beads, which gently remove dirt and dead skin, and Peppermint Oil for a cool, invigorating feeling.


Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

UV rays can be just as damaging in the winter, especially when reflected off snow. Be sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen (with at least SPF 30) to exposed skin every day.

For great skin protection, apply our SPF 30 Mineral Face Lotion 20 minutes before going out into the sun on clean dry skin. Then reapply every 2 hours.

 

 

Don’t Forget the Rest of Your Body

Moisturize Your Beard

Use a simple, effective moisturizer for the hair on your face. Something like our Beard + Face Lotion, which can help you ditch the itch (and stop dreaded beardruff) with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Coconut Oil that nourish your beard and the skin underneath.


Use a Hydrating Body Wash

Most popular body washes are packed with chemicals that can leech the natural oils from your skin – especially in cold weather when you need it the most. But our Body Wash puts back the stuff your skin needs with gentle hydration AND a seriously deep clean.

There's a reason Hand + Body Lotion was our most requested item ever. It'll take your skin from dry and cracked to nourished and smell great, all without the greasiness that's left behind from other lotions.

Lifestyle Adjustments

  

Humidify Your Space

Using a humidifier in your home or office can add moisture to the air, helping to prevent your skin and scalp from drying out.


Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is essential for maintaining healthy skin and scalp. It helps replenish the skin's moisture from the inside out.


Diet Matters

Eating foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, flaxseeds, and walnuts, can help improve your skin's health and moisture levels.
