Can you feel the crispness in the air when you walk outside? Yep, it’s that time of the year again fellas. 


With the onset of the cooler seasons fast approaching, you’ll want to brave the cold with finesse, and staying on top of your grooming game is the best way to do it. After all, when you look good, you feel good and your grooming skills say a lot about your personality as well as self respect.

From harsh winds and freezing temperatures to lower air humidity, your skin and hair will face a different kind of battering from the elements this season. As such, you will need to take extra precautions to keep looking your best. Here are some cold-blooded grooming tips to combat the winter chill with flair.

Enrich your skin

The moment temperatures drop outdoors, they ramp up inside, and these sudden temperature changes can lead to your skin feeling dehydrated and sensitive. Be that as it may, making skin care a part of your daily grooming routine is an excellent way to prevent this while ensuring your skin looks at its freshest all season long. 

We recommend getting into the habit of washing your face before you go to bed with a light, alcohol-free face wash and gently exfoliating your skin with a scrub once or twice a week to remove dead cells and revitalise your skin. Topping off your routine with a hydrating moisturiser for damage protection also comes highly recommended.

Follow these guidelines and looking your best this winter will be a no brainer. 

Keep your beard in check

When it comes to the colder months, you really can’t go wrong with embracing a dedicated beard maintenance regime. Our advice? Keep it soft and safe from the cold by conditioning it. Naturally, you’ll also benefit from trimming your beard on the regular to ensure that it frames your face just right.

Get into the habit of washing your beard with shampoo as often as you do your scalp, and you’ll be golden. Nothing says ‘I’m calm, collected and focused on the matter at hand’ like a beard that’s been well looked after.

Care for your hair

Taking care of your hair with the right products is a certain route to turning heads and making a lasting impression long after you’ve left the room. It also does wonders for your self-confidence and overall wellbeing.

For the best results, use shampoo daily and remember to keep your hair looking full and gleaming by conditioning it at least once a week. You could even take it a step further and invest in a well-employed cream wax or volume mousse for scene-stealing styling.

So there you have it, seeing as we’ve given you a rundown of this season’s skin, hair and facial hair care essentials you are now equipped to take on the season. What are you waiting for? It’s time to update your grooming routine and create head turning looks.
