5 ways to revive your grooming routine
The first step in the grooming routine of thousands of men would no doubt be a face wash. At the head of the pack is Previse’s Bespoke Botanicals range. The Purify Botanic Wash for Dry & Oily Skin with Organic Himalayan Cedar & Sweet Orange is bursting with a zing of citrus and marine algae. Its botanical extracts help remove excess oil, dirt and dead skin. Suitable for a range of skin types, its pH-balancing formula will benefit those prone to irritation, while its subtle cedar notes gives it a masculine edge. Not only that, but it’s proudly vegan to boot.
For the more hirsute of us fellows, a decent shave can leave us feeling red-raw. Hope arrives in the form of Gillette’s 3D-printed Razor Maker. With four unique handle designs to choose from, it also features a Fusion5 ProGlide FlexBall razor head, which minimises that snagging sensation so prevalent in other products. It also glides effortlessly over your face while shaving at skin level, preventing irritation and ingrown hairs. Put simply, it’s a stylish cut above other razors on the market.
Shaking up a grooming routine means rejigging the whole ensemble of washing, cleansing and moisturising. We can heartily recommend Upcircle’s Face Moisturiser for this. Inspired by its three founding pillars of “Reused, Repurposed, Reloved”, this brand uses skin-loving ingredients such as coffee grounds, chai tea spices and discarded argan shells (rich in vitamin E), suitable for all skin types.
Once you finish with your face, the next stop is normally your deodorant. But how do you take arms against a sea of homogeneous products and fragrances? There can be no better pick than Ethique’s Rustic deodorant bar. Eschewing plastic bottles, the company’s eco-credentials even stretch to the fact that its products are vegan, cruelty-free and biodegradable. Scented with lime, cedarwood and eucalyptus, it also contains bamboo, which absorbs twice its own weight in sweat and oil.
Finally, don’t forget your teeth. The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean has five custom brush modes and its soft bristles give up to 10 times more plaque removal from difficult spots. Its smooth action contributes to its USP, which is to prevent the harmful bacteria that builds up in our mouth and spreads around our system, putting your overall health at risk. Using the DiamondClean will ensure that not only your pegs but your whole body will thank you for it!
