This one’s personal. Like: your face, personal.

Winter’s here. And with it, all the windy facial lashings a Chicagoan can handle.

When it comes to winter skin maintenance, a gentleman has two options:

Grow a beard or — the more sensible plan — stock up on Balsem, a new manly man line of grooming goods from the venerable clotheshorses at Frank & Oak.

Frank’s got a nice little pop-up arrangement over on Damen and Wabansia. Affordable basics. Stylish garb for the modern dude. And now, all the stuff you need to step up your mug.

Start with the Face Cleanser. Every morning. Every night. It’s made from Willowherb extract, which’ll take care of inflamed skin.

Equally important: Face Moisturizer. Non-greasy and built to tone, hydrate and keep your face looking fresh.

Round it off with some Balsem deodorant and shampoo and you got yourself a solid winter routine.

Visit Frank & Oak for more details.

Or better yet, head to their Wicker Park locale for a full inspection.

Call it a personal day.
