Winter is a harsh, cruel mistress. As well as making us ill, covering us in darkness and bleeding our bank accounts and self-respect dry at Christmas parties, its drastic temperature drops and blusterous winds can damage our skin to the point of looking like a flaky, dry, bright red stop sign.
Winter is in the air. Not fully, but it's there enough for you to have that awkward conversation about switching the heating on with your flat mates. But being warm and cosy has its side effects, as high temperatures in the home cause low humidity, which leads to water evaporating from your skin, which can leave you dry and irritated.
Think you can solve it by stepping outside to cool off? Nope, the world isn't that simple of kind, as switching between drastically different temperatures causes your facial capillaries to rapidly contract and expand, which is the reason you see a lot of people with broken veins and cheeks like sun-blushed tomatoes in December.
But not all is lost. You still have time to build your winter care regime with these key men's grooming products, featuring essential moisturisers, beard oils, eye balms and more.
