With winter set to knock out summer from the year, it is time to shun that apathy for all things skin care and shop for products that are designed for the season

Although winter doesn’t bring with it the chills in this part of the world, your skin, which has been bearing the onslaught of summer heat and humidity all these months, will need a soothing balm to perk up for the new season. And that, specifically, means shopping for products that are designed to keep the seasonal skin problems at bay.

Presuming you are apathetic towards your skin care needs and all things shopping, we have put together a brief product guideline to help you pick the ones that your skin will be thankful for. Most items are available in hypermarkets around the city or stores dealing with branded products. If not, you could buy some online…

Body Wash

Your body requires the luxury of a good bath, which bar soaps rarely, if ever, provide. Described as a high-end product, Molton Brown Black Peppercorn Body Wash is designed to provide a deep clean that eliminates skin toxins and other impurities. What most men like about this product is its bold and spicy aroma – it is blended with Madagascan black peppercorn oil, coriander, and basil. It also has hydrating qualities that can soften even rough skin.

Hair Wash

You probably have your own favourite brand of shampoo and may have no reason to change it. However, if you do believe in the old saying that switching shampoos in between helps breathe freshness on to your scalp and hair, you may want to consider a change in shampoo. Besides, hair experts recommend switching to match the requirements of the season as well as the process of ageing, in addition to any lifestyle changes that might require a new hair product. Now, if that makes sense, look out for Paul Mitchell Special Tea Tree Shampoo, which is said to be good for all hair types. It is an invigorating cleaner that can leave your strands smelling and looking refreshingly clean. Also, its natural tea tree oil and peppermint are designed to soothe the scalp.

Face Wash  

There is no escaping from buying a face wash, and your best bet, for a normal skin, is the Nivea Men Active Energy Fresh Look Face Wash Gel, which comes in a 100ml pack. Packed with exfoliating particles, in addition to other enriching properties, it claims to remove impurities and dead skin cells, while clearing blocked pores.

Hand Wash

Nah, you cannot ignore your hands, even if your job only requires you to work on the computer all through the day. Your hands require some tender loving care, which only a hand wash that is produced to protect and nourish can impart. Check out the Clarins Active Hand Care. The product manufacturers claim that it nourishes the skin on your hands and instantly eradicates any signs of dryness, leaving the skin plumped and with a healthy shine.

Lip Care

For obvious reasons, most men believe that all lip products have feminine overtures. Unless the lips become chapped, the lip balm may hardly be seen as a handy product. But with winter set to make merry, shopping for a lip balm is in order. Try the Chapstick Dual-Ended Hydration Lock for a 24-hour lip care. It has two sides and two distinct formulas, catering to your day needs as well as the night. The day end of the Chap Stick contains SPFF12 protection, while the night side is made from antioxidants and botanical oils to replenish and nourish the lips overnight.
