1. Keep that beard moisturized. Cold weather means dry skin, and when you shave dry skin, you’re likely to experience some irritation. Eric Aleman, owner of King of Kings, recommends using some argan oil on your beard to help keep the hair soft, plus an aftershave lotion. Both will help keep razor bumps away -- and no one wants those. If you can’t get to the barber, make sure you get the bathroom extra steamy and keep a warm towel on hand, before you grab your razor. The steam will open the pores and give you a closer shave.
2. Tailor that suit. If you sprung for a suit this season, Tarik Kaljanac, a Perry Ellis brand ambassador, recommends you get it to fit you just right. “It’s a common mistake that [the suit] is too big,” he says. A sharp, well-fitting suit is perfect for holiday parties, but if you’re just heading to the office, he recommends looking for wrinkle-free and easy-to-wash options to keep you looking fresh from the first cup of coffee to evening rush hour.
