Top 3 Tried-and-True Products for Every Rough Guy

With the change of seasons, I notice a difference in my skin and hair; my scalp gets very dry and my hands, knees and elbows become rugged, cracked and chafed — Eczema also tends to flair-up.

This month I sought out to find the best remedies on the market to rectify this problem. Following are three must-have products for men who suffer from seasonal changes that lead to dry skin and damaged hair.


#3: The Jojoba Company Australia created this oil that is 100% natural jojoba grown and processed on the Engsall family farm down under. Their face and body moisturizer and soother goes deeper into the skin for maximum conditioning. I tried it and the effects are immediate without a greasy film on my face. You can use this oil on the hair, scalp and cuticles as well.

#2: CapriClear is a moisturizing spray made from whole coconut oil and has no coloring or fragrance additives. It has natural anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties. I found it’s best to apply after bath or shower to lock in the moisture; the spray dispenser makes it quick and easy, and it delivered noticeable results within days. CapriClear has the seal of approval from the National Eczema Association.

#1: WenMen Hair + Body CC. You must have seen the commercials for Wen with creator Chaz Dean. He has been all over the media since the release of his hair-care products and it has been a juggernaut for women including actresses Alyssa Milano, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Holly Robinson Peete and Candice Accola. Now Mr. Dean has developed Wen for Men and it piqued my curiosity.

It’s not a shampoo. It applies almost like a conditioner and you can use a dollop about the size of a nickel to scrub your entire scalp and hair. I currently have very short hair. The instructions state: Rinse hair thoroughly, apply WEN MEN into your palms and rub together. Use 6 pumps for short hair, 8 pumps for medium hair, and 10 pumps for long hair.

The outcome for me was nothing short of remarkable; my salt & pepper hair was shiny, manageable, soft to the touch and looked healthy right after the first use. I tried it on my beard and got the same impressive results. The Amber Woods is made with Bergamot, Tahitian Vanilla, Amber and Bamboo. This product can be used on both hair and skin. The scent is refreshing and masculine.

This is my number 1 pick for the season.
