Surviving the holidays is a feat unto itself, and getting back into your regular work schedule and daily routine can be quite challenging. Taking care of yourself over the next few weeks of post-holiday bliss is important, so make sure to do so. Whether you’ve vowed to lose 10 pounds or remain sober for the next month, you deserve a little pampering, as well. As Tom of Parks and Rec once famously put it, there’s no better time than now to “treat yo self” with these five pampering products.

1. Shower Oil by Sabon

Part of the Men’s Collection, Sabon’s Shower Oil is gentle enough for a woman’s skin, but made specifically for men. This liquid soap is packed with essential oils, such as olive, avocado, jojoba, and wheat germ, is rich in antioxidants, and will keep your skin feeling silky smooth.

2. Fresh Mint Beard Saver by Bluebeards Original

It’s not uncommon for men to let their facial hair grow out, especially during the winter months. The Fresh Mint Beard Saver is a daily leave-in conditioner for your beard. Allowing you to soothe beard growth while also de-stressing (the stuff’s infused with real peppermint oil, which is known to aid in relieving anxiety), this beard saver is ideal for the mountain man who wants a bit of pampering, without losing his lumberjack-cred.

3. Quench Ex Face & Body Scrub by Key West Aloe

Exfoliation isn’t just for the ladies, so treat your skin to The Quench Ex Face & Body Scrub by Key West Aloe.

Space in the medicine cabinet is limited, so choose wisely products that can do it all. Remove dirt, dead skin, and excess oil on both your face and body with this one-size-fits-all scrub.

Why choose generic shampoo with ordinary results when you can really kick it up a few notches? Mitch, a brand division of industry powerhouse Paul Mitchell, delivers style with ease to chic, sophisticated men who care to put some extra loving into their daily routine.

The Heavy Hitter Deep Cleansing Shampoo allows you to wash away the dirt and grime of a hard day’s work so you can end your day feeling clean, looking refreshed, and smelling of delicious cedar and agave scents.

5. Facial Cleansing Mask by Menscience

Few things will leave your skin feeling as renewed as a clay mask; it’s just that simple. There’s a reason people pay hundreds of dollars for spa treatments that involve some of nature’s best stuff. If you look hard enough, you can probably find some Grade A mud on the side of a river bank in the desert. But for those days you don’t have time to go trekking into the unknown or book a spa treatment, the Facial Cleansing Mask by Menscience will do just fine. This mask will help you maintain clear complexion by absorbing impurities with its mix of pulverized green tea and refined clay.
