As the temperatures drop, it's time to step up on a few key areas of your skincare & grooming regimen. In the winter, it's a little harder to wake up because of the shorter, darker days and the thought of stepping out into the cold and/or wet is not so appealing. Furthermore, the colder/harsher weather can be tough on skin. 

Here are a few tips to help kick start your day and protect your skin and hair from the elements this fall and winter. As with most things, prevention is key. 

WAKE UP

As mentioned, it may be a little harder to get up in the morning as it gets darker and colder. Invigorate your body with the best selling Jack Black Turbo Wash. Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Juniper Berry will awaken the mind and body. Don't stop there. The Ab Crew Caffeine Shampoo and Ab Crew Nitro Conditioner is a great top-down approach to have you awake and ready to tackle the day.  

EXFOLIATE

With cold weather can come dryer skin, so be sure to scrub/exfoliate dry skin to get rid of dead skin cells and keep your skin smooth - not so much flaky. This applies to your body and your face and should be done a few times a week. For the face, it's always ideal to exfoliate right before you shave to prepare your skin for the shave. It gets rid of excess oil, dry skin, etc. that can clog the razor and cause irritation. Two of my personal favourite scrubs for the face include the Urth Face Scrub and the Portland General Store Face Bomb, but you can explore many others here. For options for the body, click here

MOISTURIZE

The cold weather is hard on your skin so although moisturizing is key year-round, it's especially important in the winter. Furthermore, with all of the holiday parties, for many the alcohol consumption goes up which means so does dehydration. Keep your skin from head-to-toe moisturized - this includes: face, lips, beard, hair and body. You can lose moisture fast once you get out of the shower, so this is one of the best times to moisturize. Of course you can moisturize as needed throughout the day and evening as well.  Explore the selection of face moisturizers here and body moisturizers here

GET COZY

In the winter, you obviously spend more time indoors with family and friends so you might as well get cozy and enjoy it. Create a warm, inviting atmosphere with a soothing, aromatic  candle. Scent can invoke positive feelings and create a memorable experience for guests. Check out the many unique candles/scents here

FRAGRANCE
