A man’s guide to grooming like a pro this winter

From power products to the latest trends, we've got what you need to transform your current grooming routine.
Winter is coming, which means it's time to switch up your grooming routine. What worked in summer is simply not going to cut it as the harsh elements kick in, sapping moisture from your body and doing a number on your skin.  Here's how to make changes that prepare your hair and skin for the new season.

Hair trends

Expect to see the return of wild and free hair this year. The buzz cut that was big news last year is still a trendy option, but longer styles are staging a comeback. Curly-haired guys, consider growing out your waves into a loose, floppy top. Straight-haired? Grow it into a bob a la Johnny Depp. And when it comes to the ’fro, graphic shapes are back, such as skin fade flat tops, bowl tops and taper fades.

Retinol remedy

Retinol is a powerful anti-ageing ingredient that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles by boosting the production of collagen in the skin. It also improves the skin’s texture and reduces dark marks and scarring, for an even complexion. It takes consistent use to benefit from this ingredient, so find a product you like and stick to it for best results.

Grooming oils

If you’re after a soft beard, smooth locks and hydrated skin, consider incorporating oils into your grooming routine. They absorb quicker and deeper into the skin than moisturisers, and contain nourishing and soothing ingredients that condition unruly beard hair and keep skin hydrated.

Fragrance update

New season new scent, right? With all the launches taking place, it’s difficult to narrow it down to just one – so don't! We recommend picking a light, crisp and fresh fragrance for daytime use, and something more sensual for the evening.

Beard care

When it comes to facial fuzz, big, unruly and bushy beards are being replaced with short, clean and more stylised stubble. For those who still prefer some facial fur, the moustache is making a huge comeback – not only reserved for ‘Movember’, it’s now a strong style statement.

Pollution proof 

 We are all exposed to pollution on a daily basis. The latest wave of serums and moisturisers are designed to form an invisible shield between the air and your skin. They contain powerful antioxidants that fight free radicals, minimising the damage caused by air pollution and protecting your skin from premature ageing.

Optimal hydration

A common skin concern among men is dehydration, which indicates that your skin is lacking the essential moisture it needs to look plump and healthy. The latest launch by ClarinsMen consists of three products to target varying degrees of dehydration – from a rich and heavy balm for severely dehydrated skin, to lightweight, fresh lotions with built-in sun protection that are suitable for all skin types.
