A good grooming lineup might fulfill your daily needs, but cold air and dry winter winds demand some extra muscle. To compensate, take a cue from your hunter-gatherer roots, because the perfect product may be right under your nose—namely, on a lady-friend’s sink ledge. To keep your skin and hair tip-top this season, here are five awesome products that are worth the scrounge.

In the dead of winter, harsh winds can suck up moisture like a camel, so make sure your hair gets some extra protection. To keep it soft and hydrated, rummage through her cabinet for a lightweight hair oil, like Kérastase Elixir Ultime. Their nutrient-rich formulas work wonders for dry hair, and can be applied before shampooing, which makes your thievery easy to conceal.
We all deserve to relax after a hard day, and when temperatures hit single digits, the same can be said for your skin. These 30-minute patches use cactus collagen to tighten skin and reduce puffiness, with a cool, soothing sensation that feels like Sunday morning. If you’ve ever envied those cucumber eye patches (they do look awfully comfortable), consider this your chance.
Dry shampoo is a great steal in any season, but when rickety water heaters threaten your morning shower, this simple convenience can turn into a lifesaver. Just hold the can 10 inches from your hair and spray: The dry formula will soak up sweat and grime to freshen your coif between showers. Great for end-of-day hat hair, or a post-workout cleanse.
While you might have a daily moisturizer, an opponent like winter demands bigger guns, and your lady’s medicine cabinet is the perfect place to look. Ideally, go for high-powered balms like Phenomé Rejuvenating Line Minimizer. Its formula tackles dry, tired skin from several angles: Botanical oils moisturize, nutrients help skin retain water, and anti-aging properties provide a welcome, long-term bonus.
When it comes to wellness, and especially skincare, winter is the time to go the extra mile. That said, if you come home sporting a sore, weatherworn face, a spa mask will feel like a bona fide miracle. There are many great options to choose from, but urbanites should search out a charcoal-based mask for maximum detox firepower. Happy spa day, gents.
