Winter Skin and Hair Care Tips for Men: Embrace the Season with Style
The season of cozy sweaters, evenings around the fireplace interspersed with the odd glass of red wine or hot chocolate. But as the temperature drops, so does your skin and hair's moisture levels. With a little TLC and some smart grooming habits, you can conquer the cold weather without sacrificing your dashing looks. Get ready to embrace the season with style!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Just like a good blanket keeps you warm during winter nights; a proper moisturizer will keep your skin hydrated and protected. Look for a moisturizer specifically designed for men's skin, preferably one with natural ingredients. Apply it liberally after showering or washing your face to seal in moisture and prevent dryness and irritation. Don't forget your hands and lips! Carry a lip balm and a small bottle of hand cream to combat the harsh winter air.
Our Acqua Di Parma and Dermalogica ranges offer the perfect solution! We have everything from face serums to facial scrubs and moisturisers. And for those of you looking for the extra bit of TLC, our facials are renowned for leaving your skin feeling like it just had a holiday!


Invest in a Humidifier

Winter air tends to be dry, which can wreak havoc on your skin and hair. Combat this by investing in a humidifier for your home or office. It will add moisture to the air, helping your skin retain its natural hydration and preventing dryness and itchiness. Plus, you'll notice a positive impact on your overall well-being.


Shampoo with Care

Lock Stock & Barrel has the perfect range that locks in moisture which is just you’re your hair needs. Avoid using harsh shampoos during the winter months, as they can strip away the natural oils that keep your hair healthy and shiny. Rather opt for a mild, moisturizing shampoo that replenishes moisture while cleansing your scalp. Remember, a little goes a long way, so don't overdo it. And once a week, treat yourself to a deep conditioning mask to give your locks an extra boost.


Beard Upkeep

Winter is the perfect time to let your facial hair flourish, but it also requires some maintenance. Keep your beard clean and well-groomed by using a mild beard shampoo or cleanser and a beard oil or balm to keep it soft, hydrated, and free from itchiness. Our Lock Stock & Barrel range will help with just that. Don't forget to comb or brush your beard regularly to prevent tangles and promote healthy growth. With a well-maintained beard, you'll be the envy of your friends. And we highly recommend taking advantage of our barber services for that extra treat!


Sun Protection Matters

Yes, you read that right! Even during winter, the sun can be damaging to your skin. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to your face and any exposed skin before heading outside. This will protect you from harmful UV rays and prevent premature aging, sunspots, and other sun-related skin damage. Remember, being sun-safe is cool at any time of the year! Dermalogica’s sun protection factor 50 is the perfect option.


Hydrate from the Inside Out

Maintaining proper hydration is essential for healthy skin and hair. During the colder months, it's easy to forget to drink enough water. However, staying hydrated will not only improve your overall health but also keep your skin looking fresh and your hair shiny. So, keep a water bottle handy and make it a habit to sip on water throughout the day.



Winter can be tough on our skin and hair, but with a few simple tweaks to your grooming routine, you can brave the cold weather with confidence. Remember to moisturize, invest in a humidifier, choose gentle hair care products, groom your beard, protect yourself from the sun, and stay hydrated. This way, you'll not only survive winter but also look your best while doing so. So, go ahead, embrace the season with style, and show winter who's boss!
