Pretty soon those autumn leaves will be falling as the summer season bleeds into fall. Autumn tends to come with a feeling of nostalgia attached to it, but it’s more notable for the shift in the weather that serves as a bridge between the hot months of summer and the cold dark days of winter. As far as penis health goes, the change from summer to autumn may be most noticeable where penis skin is concerned. As the weather shifts, it can have an impact on that delicate penis skin, and men should be aware that they may need to make some small adjustments accordingly.
- Hydrate. If there’s one thing to remember about penis skin in the autumn – or any kind of skin, for that matter) – it’s that it needs to be well moisturized, There are specific tips for this (see below), but first it’s good to remember that hydration is best when it’s a total body thing. Thus, be sure to drink plenty of fluids (waters, juices) throughout the autumn but especially as things turn colder and the autumn air becomes drier. And remember that not all liquids are created equal when it comes to hydrating; some, such as those with alcohol or caffeine, can actually impede hydration.
- And moisturize. So keeping the body hydrated by drinking water is important. So is working to moisturize specifically the penis skin. Generally, autumn air is less humid than summer air, and so the skin can get dried out faster. What is needed is something that can put up a bit of a “moisture shield” so that the vital liquids and oils that keep the penis skin healthy can stay in place. Otherwise, as moisture seeps away, the skin shows the results – cracks, flakes, crinkles and other blemishes that can turn off a partner. Some men add a lotion to their penis skin care routine, but cremes are actually a better idea; the aforementioned moisture shield is more effectively made form crème than from a lotion.
- And humidify. Since moisture is leaving the air and causing skin issues, why not fight fire with fire – and put some moisture back in the air? This is an especially valuable idea in houses in which the heat starts coming up early in the autumn, thus drying out the air even further. Running a humidifier, at least while sleeping, can help keep penis skin healthier.
- Change from soap to gel. A good strong soap helps to keep the body clean during the sweaty days of summer. But as the weather changes, men might consider changing to a cleansing gel rather than a bar of soap. The reason? Soap often leads to dry, cracked skin, and is more likely to do so in the fall and winter than in the moist days of summer. And make sure detergents used on clothes, especially underclothes, is mild and free of harsh chemicals or fragrances.
- Wear underwear. Lots of guys like going commando, especially when they have an impressively sized penis to show off. But skipping underwear means the penis rubs against the much rougher fabric of denim, linen, wool., etc., leading to unattractive chafing. Wear underwear instead and leave a nice surprise for the big reveal instead.
- Keep the penis warm. When the weather is colder, blood circulation slows down, and a formerly rosy and glowing penis can look pale. It also keeps oxygen from reaching the penis skin as easily, which dampens the skin’s attractiveness.
Autumn weather doesn’t have to be bad for penis skin. Men can help by daily applying a top drawer penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). It’s best to pick a crème with both a high end emollient (such as shea butter) and a natural hydrator (like vitamin E) which can together create that desired moisture shield. In terms of keeping penile blood circulating for healthier penis skin, the crème should also contain L-arginine, which allows penile blood vessels to open more fully.
