With winter comes dry air, which can strip the skin of moisture, leaving it dry and susceptible to damage. Don't worry, natural skincare for men can be both easy and effective. Here are a few easy tips to get your skin the much-needed attention that it deserves.
1. Stay hydrated
More than anything, try to keep yourself hydrated as much as possible. Most people tend to drink less water in winters, but that is counterintuitive. Your skin needs more moisture than usual to stand its ground against dry air. Drink loads of water as that will keep your skin moisturized inside-out.
2. Limit the temperature of your bathing water
Hot water is harsh on the skin. It may seem tempting to raise the temperature of your bathing water in chilly weather, but that may do more harm than you think. Try lukewarm water instead.
3. Use gentle face wash
You may want to replace your bar of soap with a moisturizing face wash or cleanser that won’t dry out your skin. Ideal cleansers are alcohol free.
4. SPF protection
Just because it's winter and you don't see a scorching sun, doesn't mean it's safe to go out in the sun without SPF protection. Because even in winters, UV-A (responsible for aging) levels are high enough to harm the skin. Look for natural SPF in your skincare products or apply a natural oil directly to the skin. Plant-based oils are excellent moisturizers. Some oils like sea buckthorn oil, carrot seed oil, and raspberry seed oil provide natural SPF protection.
5. Choose your winter face cream wisely
When choosing a winter face cream, the first thing you want to look for is natural ingredients. Use only natural, water-based moisturizers on your face that are free from all kinds of toxicity. Natural skincare for men can be simple and effective.
