Your Routine

"Winter's so tough and drying on your skin," says Andrew Goetz, one half of the hip apothecary line Malin + Goetz. "So it's important to keep it hydrated." Which isn't an easy task thanks to dry heat indoors and bone-chilling winds whipping outside. And despite how good a hot shower feels in the morning, Goetz advises against it. "That's the number one mistake guys make," he says. "I know they feel nice, but they'll dehydrate your skin very quickly." Now that those are out, here's how to get some cold comfort.

  • Malin + Goetz products are stocked in the rooms of such hipster havens as New York's Tribeca Grand and Portland's Ace Hotel.

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
