Winter is coming. Be like the House of Stark and be prepared, or die. Okay, you won’t die, but it’s good to be ready.
Think about it: You switch your shorts for jeans and your tees for puffer jackets, If you change your wardrobe to suit the colder climate, why not your skincare?
Because when it gets colder than a toilet seat in a blizzard, you better believe your skin is affected.
You might refuse to bring a jacket even after Mum told you to, but the weather is causing changes whether you acknowledge them or not. Here they are:
All of these changes can wreak havoc on your skin, and different climates can affect it quite drastically. We’re talking about dehydration.
Maybe on your tropical summer holiday you were sure your skin type was oily, then you come home and there’s no shine in sight.
These changes can look like flakiness, cracking, tightness, and dull skin. All of these factors increase the chance of irritation and redness. Ever come inside from the cold looking like Rudolf? Yeah, winter sucks.
Shaving is particularly irritating in winter, so use products that soothe. Alternatively, move into a deserted cottage and chop some wood while wearing flannel to go with your newly grown winter lumberjack beard.
Never fear, there are plenty of steps you can take to prepare your skin for the dark winter days.
You can’t do anything about the dropping temperature, but you can equip your skin for the coming months. Assess your routine and take a look at the Charles + Lee range to cater to your winter skincare needs.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock your entire life (we’re looking at you Patrick Starr), you’ve no doubt seen some pretty questionable products marketed exclusively at men. There are candles for men. Sponges for men. Even yogurt for men. That’s right, you can finally enjoy the probiotic benefits of yogurt!
