Summer has finally arrived and it’s time to start thinking about your summer grooming routine. It’s important for any man to keep himself looking and feeling fresh in the warmer months and we’ve got just the thing to help you keep up appearances this summer. You may find your skin and hair needs an extra bit of TLC after surviving the harsh winter months and these summer grooming tips for men will help you do just that.
Ditch the soap
If you’re guilty of washing your face with the same soap you use for your body, now is the time to stop. Your skin might be a bit dry after winter, and soap is drying on the skin. Using a facial cleanser not only helps maintain your skin’s moisture levels, but it also rids the skin of bacteria and impurities which may lead to breakouts.
Moisturise twice a day
A good quality moisturiser should be a staple in your routine all year round. A lightweight formulation that doesn’t skimp on performance is a good choice for summer. Try a lightweight day cream for all-day hydration that doesn’t sit heavy on the skin and opt for a more nourishing moisturising to treat your skin a night, while you sleep.
SPF for the win
Contrary to popular opinion, SPF is not just for beach days. The sun’s rays are more harmful than they’ve ever been, which means we have to take precautions every day, even if you are just taking a drive or running out to the shops. It’s important to select a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects from both UVA rays (the rays that accelerate ageing) and UVB rays (the rays that cause the skin to
Wash and go
With beach days, braais and hikes being high on the priority list during summer, you’ll probably end up washing your hair daily. With frequent washing, it’s best to select a shampoo and conditioner that are formulated for frequent use. It should cleanse effectively without leaving your hair feeling oily or heavy with product build-up.
Renpure’s Tea Tree Lemon Sage Shampoo and Conditioner (R159.95) are a great choice for a man with a busy schedule and will help to replenishes moisture, leaving hair soft and more manageable from root to tip.
Managing your moustache
Whether you’re shaving your beard and leaving your moustache, or growing a moustache from scratch this Movember, it’s important to care for your facial hair (and skin!) with some good quality products. Facial hair can be scratchy and get unmanageable if not moisturised, so we recommend applying a nourishing product like Clubman’s Beard and Tattoo Oil. This oil blend not only conditions your facial hair, but it also nourishes the skin underneath.
This summer, grooming needn’t be a drag. These simple steps can make all the difference to health and keep your skin and hair happy this summer.
