The Man’s Guide to Fall Grooming: 7 Essential Tips to Get Ready
Different rules apply in colder months than in the summer. Transitioning into fall doesn’t only apply to your clothes, your grooming routine needs a few tweaks as well. When temperatures drop, your skin requires more attention than usual, and the sooner you can start your preparation, the better results you’ll get. Guys, here’s how to adjust your grooming routine to the chilly weather.
1. Start with a cleanser
Wash your face with a non-drying cleanser every morning and evening. Take things to the next level with a three-step system — wash, tone, and moisturize — like Clinique for Men. It’s super simple to use, and it will hydrate your skin.
2. Get a moisturizer with sunscreen
After cleansing and shaving, protect your face with a moisturizer that does double duty — one that nourishes your skin and gives you sun protection — Oil Free Facial Lotion SPF 30 from Anthony is perfect for that. Moisturizing locks in the benefits of all you’ve done so far. In the evening, repair your skin with a good serum with hyaluronic acid to help ease damage from your razor.
3. Maintain your beard
4. Protect hands from dryness
One of the first things to get dry when the fall season hits is your hands. Keep them hydrated with a good hand cream. Get a formula that absorbs quickly such as Baxter of California Hydro Salve Hand Cream, which also helps repair really dry skin.
5. Use a hydrating body wash
Ditch the drugstore washes and get one that will give moisture back to your skin. Try Menscience Daily Body Wash; it will leave your skin feeling refreshed and smooth. Once a week, use a body scrub to exfoliate and help liven up dull skin.
6. Prevent chapped lips
Heal cracked lips with a heavy-duty lip balm. A really good lip balm will sooth irritated lips and provide instant relief. Get one with SPF to protect lips from the sun and extreme temperatures.
7. Switch out your cologne
Sporty scents are better in the summer, while bolder, richer tones work best in the fall. Select a cologne for colder weather with a woody aroma, such as Chanel Bleu de Chanel, for a masculine fragrance that isn’t overpowering.
