Men's Grooming Tips

Male grooming has come a long way since the days of a simple shave and splashing it all over. However, for some preening like a peacock doesn’t come naturally, so we’ve created a gent’s guide to enable you to shake your tail-feather.

A gent’s guide to getting your groom thing going on

  • Step 1.

    Use Razor Relief After Shaving

    Shower first to help your pores expand and wash with a gentle cleanser to soften the hairs and prevent redness and irritation. Use plenty of shaving cream and use light strokes with your razor. Hacking your face with an old blade will not maketh the man. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise to rehydrate and sooth the skin.

    Use an eye moisturiser

    Yes, you want them to look into your eyes and not around the eyes, but you shouldn’t ignore the skin around them. Keep wrinkles at bay by using a firming eye cream every morning and night.

    Don’t forget to exfoliate

    Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, which not only leaves your face and body feeling soft and smooth, but also improves skin texture and tone, and gives brighter, more radiant look. Use a face scrub on a Monday morning to take that weekend look off your face (only use once a week as the skin is sensitive on the face). Use a body mitt with your shower gel to smooth and stimulate circulation.

    Keep your hands in tip top shape

    Wash your hands frequently, and use hand lotion to prevent them feeling like sandpaper. Regularly trim and file your nails, and keep them clean throughout the day.

    Look after your lips

    Your lips take a battering all year round as the sun dries them out and the cold weather can cause them to crack. No one likes kissing a chap with chapped lips - use a lip balm regularly and be a smooth operator.

    Use products for your hair type

    Using the right products for your hair type can make a huge difference. Here are our men’s grooming tips for luscious locks. If you have short, fine hair and want to add volume and texture, we recommend waxes and gel. Avoid heavier products, like creams and non-water-based pomades, as they'll weigh down your hair. 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! Never just slap product straight onto your hair; put some in your palm and rub your hands together, then apply.
