Male Grooming Tips
If all that’s stored in your bathroom cabinet is a packet of out-of-date paracetamol and a bunch of razors, it might be time to realise you’re missing a trick. Because if you invest a little time taking care of your complexion, you’ll reap the benefits as the decades tick by. David Beckham anyone?! Yup, looking better than ever at 42, isn’t he. Want in on the action? Here are the five skincare staples every guy should invest in…
Men's Facial Cleanser
There’s no quicker way to take off the day’s grime than with a face wash. Don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s just a liquid soap – it’s made for facial skin, so it’s much gentler. Pick one for your skin type and use it twice a day, once in the shower in the morning and once before bed.
Men's Facial Scrub
Exfoliating your face will not only get rid of any dull, dead skin on the surface, making you look tired and grey, but it can also help with ingrown hairs from shaving. Make time for a facial scrub once a week: apply gently in small circles after your face wash, then rinse off.
Men's Facial Moisturiser
Nothing takes its toll on your skin like the sun, and it doesn’t have to be a-week-in-the-Med strength. Everyday sun exposure even in the grey UK can damage your skin. To help combat this, choose a daily moisturiser containing an SPF and you’ll be doing two jobs at once.
Men's Eye Cream
Think your moisturiser is good enough for the area around your eyes? Wrong. The skin here is thinner and can be more prone to irritation, and an eye treatment can also help reduce eye bags or dark circles. It will also help to make them feel pretty good the morning after the night before…
Men's Lip Balm
The skin on your lips is much thinner than on the rest of your face, and your lips don’t contain any oil glands, which means lips can easily become chapped and dehydrated. A lip balm will keep moisture in, stop the weather drying lips out, and keep them soft and supple. Now who doesn’t want that, eh?
