When it gets this cold and dry, when your days are spent out shopping or killing time with the parents, it's crucial to take some time for yourself. We're not advocating a bubble bath or anything.

Truefitt & Hill, the British apothecary company behind the world's oldest barbershop, is no slouch in the shaving department. Its glycerin-based shaving creams lock in your skin's natural moisture and the rich lather lifts whiskers, thanks to the brush which also exfoliates your skin. The fact that they smell masculine and barbershop-y just adds to the decadence. 1805 shaving cream, $30, and badger brush, $110 at Truefitt & Hill.
