Men's Skin Care & Grooming Products
Posted on 26 July 2015
Of course, not just any products will do. You want your skin to have optimum care and should aim for organic products that avoid synthetic fragrances, preservatives and parabens. And, if you're the environmentally conscious type find fair trade products that are locally made. Organic products are less likely to dry out your skin as they often contain natural ingredients that are well known for their moisturising properties.
For the best skin care routine follow our five simple steps:
KEEP YOUR HAIR TIDY
A visit to the barber won't go astray. In fact, to keep your hair in really top condition you should be visiting the barber every 5-6 weeks. This will help keep your hair styled and make sure you're on top of the latest trends. There's nothing like having a bowl cut when you should be rocking a buzz cut. Changing your hair style isn't going to hurt but make sure you do something that suits your face type. Most men wear short hair cuts but there's plenty of hair styles at any length that keep you changing up your look. Even if you're going for a messy surfer-do, make sure its deliberate and well presented.
USE STYLING PRODUCTS
Now that you've had your hair styled you need to keep it in place and there's plenty of men's products on the market to keep that freshly barbered look. Ask your barber what they would recommend or jump online to find out the best reviews for men's products. 'Slick Back' hairstyles are popular men's hair cuts for 2015 and the addition of a styling agent can help you create quiffs and pompadours. These products are quite slick to create a wet look. Make sure you get the right product for the right look.
Simply rubbing soap into your stubble and shaving off with a cheap, plastic razor can create dry itchy skin - not to mention a painful shaving experience. Investing in a good shaving soap, bristle brush and top range razor can really make the difference. A good brand razor should have a sharper blade that won't clog as easily as the plastic version resulting in a closer, smoother shave. Paired with an organic shaving soap and a bristle brush to create a good lather your razor should be gliding over the skin with no nasty cuts or scratches.
MEN'S BEARD CARE
Some men's facial type lends itself to a beard. There's many types and styles you can have which can create important definition of the face. If you have a 'baby face' a beard can add a rugged and mature look but it's important to keep it well groomed. A scraggly, messy beard isn't anyones friend. With the rise of beards as a fasion statement among men there's also been an increase in the number of beard care products you can find on the market. Beard oil's are a great grooming product as they can help your facial hair look smoother and well kept as well as reducing beard itch and dry skin. Run a comb through your beard to keep it neat and trim away any long stragglers.
FACE & BODY CARE
A face and body care routine should be completed every day, either in the morning or at night. As part of this routine, you should consider a men's face wash and nice organic body wash or soap. Choose a fragrance that isn't too overpowering but can last the majority of the day. An essential oil blend with natural products have longevity and will keep you fresh and on top of your game. A men's moisturiser won't go astray in keeping skin smoothe and supple and can be applied after your face wash.
Bam! Ready to walk out the door looking and feeling like a billion bucks.
