Season of the Ash

Winter cure 








The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler. It’s hard to believe that fall is here. People seem to have a love affair with fall...women love everything pumpkin and men love that they can pull out their good "threads". I have so much to share with you about fall style, but today I am going to tackle a few grooming necessities to make sure people are talking about you for all the right reasons.

Unfortunately cooler air also means dryer skin and dryer skin leads us to what I call the SEASON OF THE ASH. Now, most of you know exactly what I am talking about. You know that white "stuff" that appears in between your fingers, on your elbows, knees, and if you're not careful "the white all around your mouth" (in my Mike Epps voice). Ash will take your look from 10 to a 2 in a matter of seconds. So let me give you a few tips on how to avoid being called out for being "ashy".

  1. Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. It seems like a no-brainer, however, I still feel compelled to say it anyway. You should apply a really good moisturizer every time you shower. With all the options available you should have no trouble finding one that works for your skin. (If you're still not sure to check out my facebook page. I'll have a few options for you there.
  2. Wash your face. We learned from aestheticianBrie Reeder during our last style guide that properly washing with a cleanser, not soap and water as well as applying a moisturizer specific to your skin type is essential to looking your best.
  3. Hydrate. Most people don't realize that how much water you drink directly affects how your skin looks throughout the season. So in addition to moisturizing, I am going to suggest that you drink 8 glasses of water a day. How many times have you heard this one...thousands I'm sure. But let's self-assess. How many glasses are you drinking a day? Be honest.
  4. Never leave the house without it. By it I mean 2 crucial things. A great hand lotion and a great lip balm. No man that truly cares about how he looks will be walking around with ashy hands and/or chapped lips.

If you follow these 4 simple tips you should survive ASH SEASON with no incidents. Happy Fall to you and please, if you have any questions feel free to inbox me on facebook or dm me on Instagram. www.instagram/six21studio.
