Autumn is the season when many men truly underestimate the importance of skin, body and hair grooming. Now, we are not saying you should dramatically alter your summer grooming routine to your autumn one, but tweaks are essentially needed in order to get the very best out of your skin, body and hair throughout the cooler months of the year.
SKIN CARE: MOISTURISE
Autumn offers a dramatic twist in weather conditions and temperatures than that of the summer season. Increasing your moisturisation is a key factor in getting the best out of your skin during the sharp, gusty winds and the dramatic dip in temperature.
Bear in mind that this is the time of year when the central heating goes on, therefore moisturising your skin is even more important, as lack of moisture can leave your skin feeling and looking tight, dry, dull, flaky and tired. Now is the time to think about using a moisturiser to keep skin hydrated and comfortable for the vigorous change in the climate ahead.
If you, like many men, tend to suffer from very dry skin, then your problem won't get any better during autumn season - in fact, it'll get a whole lot worse. Combat particularly dry skin with a naturally made skin serum. The liquid texture will counteract the dryness, and it won't leave your skin looking greasy or oily. We recommend J. Nicholas Anti-Ageing Face Serum - it's slightly on the expensive side, but a little goes a long way with this formula and it's one of the best in the business.
For those of you who suffer from particularly oily skin, it would be best to avoid serum and gel based solutions, and go for a matte skin care formula in the shape of a cream. J. Nicholas Anti-Ageing Face Cream is ideal for countering oily skin and sustaining a good, even complexion.
Over 60% of rosacea sufferers experience a worsening of symptoms in the autumn months. Cold, dry winds and dry central heating don’t help. Symptoms of rosacea usually include hot flushing of the cheeks, red patches on the facial skin and around the neck area too. To prevent further skin irritation, try a number of naturally formulated products that specifically help to soothe and minimise the redness of the skin. The newly developed J. Nicholas Rosacea Treatment Oil is an excellent option for minimising redness and irritation.
KEEP THAT SUMMER GLOW
Still depressed about losing that summer tan? Just because the hot summer season has gone, it doesn't mean your tan has to go as well. To keep that healthy summer glow about you, consider applying a good face tan or a gradual build up tanning moisturiser. These types of products offer your skin extra hydration and keep your skin looking at its healthiest. Don't forget though, always opt for naturally formulated products, like Living Nature's brilliant tinting men's moisturiser.
At this time of year the skin beneath facial hair is very susceptible to dryness because of the way facial hair takes moisture away from skin. Your skin will lack the hydration needed for it to look and feel its best. As well as moisturising your skin, it would be helpful to your beard to consider using a few beard care products, just to give your skin extra hydration whilst conditioning the beard. A good beard oil should suffice, although you may want to take a look at Beardition's impressive range of facial hair products that also includes a shampoo and conditioner.
If you haven't stayed on top of your hair grooming routine over the summer, then it's likely your hair will have gotten damaged, therefore a good hair care routine is a vital aspect of keeping your hair in tip top condition. Try and use hair products that contain lots of moisture and offer your hair the richness of natural ingredients that it deserves. Hair volumising shampoos are perfect repair agents for your hair that offer moisture and essential ingredients. If you suffer from hair loss then it would be wise to decrease hair shedding with potent hair health products like HR23+ tablets and serum.
