Tips for a Little Self-Care & Grooming
Winter is harsh on the body and soul. But a little self-care can help both of those. As if winter is not hard enough to bear, the world has tacked on a pandemic. If you have never considered a skin care routine, now is the time to do it and become a pro at it.
We are not suggesting an hour-long facial or uncomfortable mask. Just a few basic products to make your skin shine and to remind yourself that dammit, you are worth it.
We are lucky enough to see grooming products designed for men of
color these days, like Reds Groomed Man products. Reds Groomed Man products are designed with men of color in mind.
We know that winter brings dry and itchy skin. That is why moisturizing is so important and the first step of your skin care routine.
Choose products that are filled with natural ingredients that will moisturize and hydrate your skin. Be sure your moisturizer is oil-based and not so heavy that it will clog your pores. Avoid products that are made with harsh fragrances and chemicals that will dry out your skin.
If you want a fragrant moisturizer, essential oils can provide that for you without drying out your skin.
Care for your Skin and Beard
While your beard may keep your face warm, it is not protecting
your skin from the drying agents of winter. The skin underneath your bread

Protect your Lips
If you do not have a jacket chapstick, a car chapstick and an office chapstick, I am worried about you. Winter is harsh on our lips. And let’s be honest, soft lips are important. First, because cracked, dry and whitened lips are gross looking. And second, lips are for kissing!
Look for a lip balm that is designed to keep moisture in. These should be based on cocoa or shea butter, beeswax or natural oils.
Proper preparation prevents a poor appearance. A scarf will keep the cold drying wind off your neck, the lower part of your face and lips. Gloves will keep your hands from drying out. Don’t negate your skin care routine by walking into the cold, moist wind without the right protection.
