Male grooming has come a long way since the days of a simple shave and splash of cologne. However, for some preening is still a minefield, so we’ve created a gent’s guide to getting your groom on.
The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate and prone to creasing. Help keep wrinkles at bay by using a firming eye cream every morning and night.
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, which not only leaves your face feeling soft and smooth, but also improves skin texture and tone, and gives brighter, more radiant look. Be sure to use a face wash on a Monday morning to scrub the weekend off your face.
If you have short, fine hair and want to add volume and texture, we recommend waxes and gels – and avoid heavier products, like creams and non-water-based pomades, as they'll weigh down your hair. Never just slap product straight onto your hair; put some in your palm and rub your hands together, then apply.
Thick hair also suits waxes, but not if it’s curly as it tends to clump, so we’d recommend using a pomade instead. Always read the product descriptions and ask your barber for advice if you’re really confused!
