5 Self-Care Grooming Products We’re Loving
March is a forgotten time of the year. It occupies that hinterland between winter and spring; not as celebrated as Christmas, not so hyped as Easter, when nature’s bounty is abundant. However, it is a good period to reset your intentions for the year. Make the most of what you have, then, and give yourself the time to take of yourself. If nothing else, a little indulgence through grooming can enhance your wellbeing, too.
Start at the base and indulge in the Wake Skincare Face Mask. Designed to rejuvenate and cleanse after a heavy weekend, the pink clay helps to exfoliate dead skin cells as it purifies pores. It also protects your visage from harmful UV rays, and helps prevent dryness and keeps cells from being damaged.
There’s no better treat for your peepers than Bulldog’s Energising Eye Roll-On. It’s been formulated using a blend of marine algae which is more beneficial than it sounds. This provides the skin with moisture and actively promotes blood circulation. The roll-on helps reduces dark circles, and also uses light-reflecting mica to brighten the skin surrounding your eyes.
Skin and eyes might be the first candidates when it comes to boosting one’s feeling of worth, but let’s not forget hands and nails. The Ted Baker Body Duo and Manicure Set is the perfect solution. The nail clippers and nail file are also teamed with a body wash and body spray, so your whole self can benefit from this grooming ensemble all encased in a stylish box.
Sometimes versatility is what you need. Malin+Goetz’s Meadowfoam is a new super-soothing balm with a variety of uses. Great as a moisturiser, it can also be used as a lip balm, make-up cleanser and beard conditioner. Its consistency is similar to sebum (the substance secreted by your skin), so it’s easily absorbed. It’s suitable for all skin types and taps into the brand’s ethos to be used for everybody’s body.
Finally, Amanda Harrington’s New Skin’s Advanced Glycolic Body Scrub is an example of a beauty product that occupies that sweet spot between loving yourself and the planet. Fusing a blend of glycolic and fruit acids, it also contains biodegradable castor beads that gently polish away dead skin cells in order to restore smoothness both in and after the shower. Meanwhile, the delicate hint of aloe vera means you can step out of the door feeling more confident, more revitalised, and most importantly, indulged.
