Winter weather can wreak havoc on your skin especially if you're someone who shaves frequently. Already more susceptible to being dry, sensitive, and irritated, a freshly shaved face is no match for what these cold months can bring. Unless, of course, you come prepared to fight a battle your face can truly win.
Here are a few tried-and-true tips to make sure your face remains healthy-looking in appearance all winter as it does in the spring!
Shave at night: Our skin heals itself while we sleep. So the best time for overall healing and repair after a shave is at bedtime. Not only will your skin thank you but you'll also get a few extra Z's in the morning. It's a win-win!
Moisturize and heal: Moisturizers help the skin to retain moisture while aftershave balms help to calm and heal. Both are important steps. And luckily, our 3 IN 1 Daily Moisturizer combines these benefits in one step, for the ultimate daily skincare routine.
Keep your razor sharp: Dull blades mean more tugging and pulling, so make sure to replace your blades frequently for a smoother, closer, and irritation free shave.
Choose the right shave cream: A mildly scented shave cream the provides a good glide will create less passes. And, can make all the difference for a closer more comfortable shave.
Exfoliate once a week: General recommendations are 2-3x’s a week. But, cold weather can be harsh on your skin, so a once a week routine during this season is most ideal. Also remember, shaving is exfoliating too!
By following these tips, you'll be ready to take on winter and have a face that looks just as good as it does in spring.
