A couple of our favorite body-warming methods during winter’s nasty chill are long, hot showers or snuggling up to the HVAC system vent. Both are great for short-term pleasures. Then, a few days into a cold snap, our skin starts to itch, then crack, then flake. That transition between cold outdoors and dry indoor heat (plus prolonged exposure to hot water) will irritate and dry your already embattled skin.

Thankfully, there are effective skincare techniques to battle winter, and we asked the experts over at Harry’s to give us their best grooming hacks. Watch the video for their tips on skin care, beard care, styling tips and more, and read on for the perfect winter grooming kit that includes their suggestions, plus some favorites of our own.
