While a lot of us look forward to the cozy weather that comes with hot cocoa and après-ski raclette, we can sometimes forget to prepare our skin for the harsh weather. Brutal winds, low humidity and cold temperatures, combined with indoor heat, can wreak havoc on the skin—especially for people already prone to dryness or irritation, like many men are. The skin gets dry; lips crack, hands chap, and the complexion gets rougher. When that happens, we become more prone to skin issues like blemishes, flaky skin, and breakouts.
Luckily, there are things that we can do to protect the skin against the harshest months of the year. This winter, ensure that your customers get the best skin care while they enjoy their favorite cold weather activities by stocking up on these men’s winter skin care essentials. Whether they live in a frozen tundra or enjoy a relatively mild winter, these products can help your customers enjoy the season without having to worry about their skin!
Cleanse and Exfoliate
During colder months, the skin loses moisture and becomes dull. The last thing you’d want is to strip away what little moisture left—which heavy duty cleansers can do. Regular gentle cleansing is needed to prevent clogged pores while maintaining the skin’s natural oil production.
Meanwhile, as the skin gets dry, dead skin cells accumulate making the skin feel flaky and rough. This is where gentle exfoliating comes in. For both cleansing and exfoliating, it’s important to provide your customers with products that have strong hydrating properties. Look for ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter, coconut, jojoba, and other proven moisturizing ingredients.

Hydrate and Nourish
The best thing anyone can do for the skin all winter is to keep it moisturized—a lot. But while moisturizing the face and body is one thing, it’s good to remind your customers not to forget other areas of the body we tend to neglect, like the lips and the under eye area. A good moisturizer not only hydrates the skin, it also creates a protective barrier while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Here’s what we recommend you stock for your customers:
- Men’s Moisturizer (BLNK-SS-05-02-MST)
- Under Eye Cream (BLNK-SS-05-04-UEC)
- Hyaluronic Acid Serum (BLNK-GF-03-02-HAS)

Proper beard care is essential especially in the winter. Razor burns and bumps damage the skin—which can be more sensitive and prone to cuts and dryness because of the cold weather. Using products specifically tailored to beards can significantly reduce the chance of developing skin issues as they keep facial hair hydrated, as well as the skin underneath.

Winter is one of the harshest times of the year. In between winter activities and enjoying the snow from the comforts of their home, it’s important to provide your customers with the arsenal they need to keep their skin nourished all year round.
