11 Ways to Save Your Face During Cool Weather
As the weather changes, your skin is one of the first things to suffer. The cold, dry air (and harsh winds) make your face more susceptible to blotchy skin, dried lips, and general dehydration. Battle the elements with a few key products. Here's what to get.
1| Aesop Face Cleanser
It's time you retire using body soap on your face. This one is much gentler, and won't strip your skin of its natural (and essential) oils.
2| Baxter of California After Shave Balm
Your skin post-shave is at its most vulnerable. Stop it form getting dry or irritated by applying a hydrating shave balm right after.
3| Clinique Maximum Hydrator
If you're not already using a face moisturizer, it's time to start. Use it after washing your face (morning and night) to keep your skin soft.
4| DTRT Ceramidin Cream
Ceramides lock moisture in your skin—ideal for using before heading out into windy weather.
5| Jack Black All-Over Wash
Get one very large bottle of a wash that cleans everything so you can avoid having to run out in the cold for replacements.
6| Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Another way to lock in moisture: a face oil. Don't fear the word "oil" here—this one will balance pores, not clog them.
7| La Mer The Lip Balm
Yes, $60 is a lot for a lip balm—but it really is the most powerful one out there. Save it for emergencies only.
8| L'Occitane Immortelle Night Cream
For major dry skin reparations, put on some heavy-duty night lotion to stay moisturized.
9| Origins GinZeng Eye Cream
Waking up to cold mornings is the worst, but this eye cream is a shot of energy (quite literally) to the face.
10| Perricone Gentle Cleanser
Washing your face every day helps keep your skin in balance—no acne or dryness—and a gentle one won't sting your skin.
11| Esquire Grooming The Beard Oil
It doesn't just moisturize your whiskers—it also hydrates the skin underneath. Which means healthier skin (and no "beardruff") all season long.
