First, use a quality face wash morning and night. Every few days you should also sub out your face wash for an exfoliator. This is a gritty “scrub”, that makes for noticeably clearer skin.
Next apply a male specific toner. Lots of men forget this step but it’s an important part of your skincare routine. A toner closes your pores after cleansing, removes excess oil and reduces shine.
This is a pretty obvious one. Quality moisturisers don’t just add moisture, they protect your skin from what the day throws at you, make shaving easier and help your skin look smoother and younger. If you chose a moisturiser with SPF, it will protect your skin from the sun as well.
Wash, tone and moisturise morning and night to tackle blemishes, acne, wrinkles and other specific problems too.
Wet shaving is the way to go. Move to a wet shave grooming routine and your skin (and partner) will thank you. Traditional wet shaving is making a massive comeback for good reason.
Your first hair care essential is shampoo. Choose a good shampoo, not just whatever’s on sale at the supermarket. This should suit your hair – greasy, dry, curly, straight or somewhere in between.
Depending on your coif, you may also need styling products. Most gels clog up your follicles and cause dandruff – not a good look. Go for a pliable product like a wax or putty instead.
Ditch your drying supermarket bar soap and grab a shower gel. Don’t forget it’s important to hydrate and protect your entire body, so use a good body moisturiser after your shower. Your hands may need some too, especially in winter.
