1. Natural hair care

When the weather becomes colder, it’s a good idea to provide our hair with a moisture boost. One of the best natural moisturizers for the hair is coconut oil. There are many benefits of using coconut oil on your hair. Coconut oil helps to encourage hair growth and to slow down the process of hair loss. The oil helps to keep the hair soft, shiny and healthy. Coconut oil can also improve the health of your scalp by preventing dandruff.

You should also ensure that you book regular men’s grooming treatments for your hair. Regular hair cuts will help to prevent breakage and stimulate hair growth throughout the winter.

2 . Try beard oil 

Perhaps you’re yet to jump on the beard oil craze? As the winter approaches, now is the perfect time to change that! Beard oil is a great way to keep the hair nourished and soft, providing your beard with all the moisture that it needs. It’s not uncommon for the skin underneath your beard to get a little bit dry. When you use beard oil, this product helps to keep your skin nice and soft too. You can purchase beard oil in a range of different scents from cedarwood and mandarin to vanilla and mango. Trying out beard oil is one of the top male grooming tips for this year!

3. Natural sunscreen

Many people do not wear sunscreen during the winter months, but the fact is the sun can still damage your skin on a bright winter day. When you are choosing your sunscreen, it’s worth looking out for a ‘natural sunscreen’; these also go by the name of ‘physical sunscreens’. These products are FDA approved and contain mineral-based ingredients, including titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Natural sunscreens reflect the sun, unlike chemical-based products that rely on energy conversion.

4. Improve your moisturizing regime

When the weather is cold out, our skin needs all the moisture it can get. For a few natural products, try out the following ideas:

CBD OIL: Cannabidiol is a compound which is extracted from marijuana plants. It’s taken as a supplement for stress and relaxation; however, it’s also used in many skin care products. The oil is a fantastic moisturizer; it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe the skin.

Aloe Vera: Aloe vera is the perfect natural moisturizer for the skin; it enhances the production of hyaluronic acid, which helps to keep the skin youthful and fight off free radicals.

Avocado: It’s so simple to make your own DIY moisturizing face mask, all you have to do is mash up an avocado, and you’re away! Avos are packed with plenty of vitamins and nutrients to keep the skin soft and supple.
