Use these head-to-toe tips to keep your skin feeling like summer, even when the temperature drops. It’s annoying (and a little embarrassing) to sit at work, scratching at your skin like you’ve come down with some type of rare disease. Men’s Fitness feels your pain (or itch, rather), so we did some research and tracked down a few solutions to make your skin feel as good as new.

Use A Cooling Body Lotion
When your skin is in need of a little moisture, nothing feels quite as thirst-quenching as Gold Bond’s Medicated Body Lotion. It has a weird-but-awesome cooling effect that magically takes away the pain you’ve caused by non-stop scratching.
Find A Good Face Moisturizer
Bring dull, dry skin back to life with this lightweight gel. A great alternative to goopy creams, it won’t leave you looking oily, and it works to fight signs of aging at the same time.
Deal With Cracked Hands
Cracked hands might be one of the worst things about cold weather, but who wants to use that flowery-smelling something your girlfriend carries in her purse? Gloves In A Bottle is fragrance-free, promotes natural moisture, and won’t slide off the minute you wash.
Don’t Forget Your Scalp
Your scalp needs some loving, too! If you don’t have time for conditioner, moisturize your head with Suave Professional 2-in-1. Now people won’t keep thinking you’re confused all the time.
Try Some Oil
This oil is multipurpose, meaning it’s for everything—skin, hair, shaving. You name it, it’s going to add moisture to it. Well worth the money, too.

Use Body Wash Instead Of Soap
Stop with the bar soap for now and replace it with a moisturizing body wash. Your skin will thank you.
Save Chapped Lips
Mayron’s Goods Chapstuff is probably the manliest lip stuff out there. Bonus: You can use it on cheeks, knees, and elbows, too. Double Bonus: It’s organic.
Scrub Off Dead Skin
Get rid of dead skin cells without adding to the problem with an exfoliating scrub. This one will make you feel as smooth as a baby.
Scale Back On Sugar
Another reason to cut back on the sugar and carbs? You’ll reduce inflammation. Stick to foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, which will soften skin and lock in moisture.
Catch Some Zs
Lack of sleep will not only leave bags under your eyes and help cause wrinkles, it can affect the way your skin’s natural moisture barrier works. Winter just might be the perfect time to stop working late and hit the hay at a reasonable hour.

Skin Hot Showers
They may be relaxing, but steamy showers strip skin of its natural oils. Get in and get out as quick as you can and opt for lukewarm water instead.
