When we start thinking about winter, women tend to think about products we need. It’s time to find a more hydrating lotion for our dry hands and an exfoliating scrub for that dead skin. But what about the man in your life. He needs a few new products to update his bathroom routine for winter too. So when you’re out shopping, keep him in mind.
What, exactly, does your man need, though? Sometimes, it feels like it’s just guessing and picking up random products that say “men” on them, right? I sat Pete down and asked him what his picks for winter bathroom essentials for men are.
Winter Bathroom Essentials For Men
IN THE SHOWER
Pete used soap until he met me and I introduced him to body wash. He hasn’t looked back. What’s great about Dove Men+Care products is that you can purchase a body and face wash. It’s the same bottle. It takes up less room in the shower, plus it eliminates the need for a second face wash in the shower.
If your man prefers bar soap, stock him up on that instead. Dove Men+Care has body and face bars, similar to the dual-purpose body wash. It just makes life easier and your shower less cluttered.
Pete actually makes his own shampoo. If your man doesn’t, pick him up some good shampoo — especially if his hair is going to be stuck under a hat for a good portion of the winter. You don’t want it to be completely flat when his hat comes off. Oh sure, your man could use yours, but if you’re like me, your shampoo is some sort of sweet smelling scent. Men don’t want that.
AROUND THE SINK
Lotion & Shaving Cream
Before a man shaves, it’s a good idea to put lotion on his neck. Then, he’ll put shaving cream on top of so he can have a shave without razor burn. Razor burn actually is worse for some people in the winter than any other time of year, so this two-step method will really help your man out.
A Good Razor
Regardless of if your man shaves in or out of the shower, he’ll want a good razor to do it. An old razor can end up with dull blades, plus dead skin in those blades. Gross. So while you’re updating his products, you’ll want to update his razor too.
Go with a separate face wash, one he can keep around the sink. It’ll be easier for him to wash off the sweat from his brow after being bundled up all day. Winter sweat, it’s worse than summer sweat.
AFTER THE SHOWER
It’s still so warm in the winter in North Carolina that deodorant is still a must at all times. Stick or spray, it doesn’t matter. As long as your man has one available. And preferably a new one. Deodorants don’t last forever.
It’s nice to smell nice. If your man likes to, cologne is the way to go. A new scent for a new season is great too. I vote for something a bit or musky or woodsy, but you have to see what works for your man.
In the winter, it’s a good habit to dry your hair before you leave the house. You don’t want to leave with cold hair. Trust me. I do it too much. So making sure your blow dryer is out of hiding and accessible by your man is a great thing!
