The Wedding season is upon us and your Instagram feed is waiting for that perfect wedding selfie. While women are kicking it up a notch with their arsenal of concealers, bronzers, highlighters and mascaras, we men might spend an extra minute in the shower to clean behind our ears.
Now, it's easy to feel bemused by the overwhelming amount of advice, opinion and small pots filled with expensive goop on the market. All we need is to get our basic grooming regimen to respectable standards while choosing the right kind of products.
Shower Grooming Routine
Your grooming regimen starts from the shower. The secret to a satisfying bath lies in choosing the right products for your skin type with the right fragrances to keep you refreshed for the day ahead.
Start the process with a warm water shower and lather up with the right kind of soap. Exfoliation is the unsung hero here, it removes dead cells that have migrated from deeper layers of the skin to the epidermis (top layer of the skin), revealing the newer and healthier layer of skin underneath.
While there are a plethora of 2in1, 3in1 and even 5in1 bath grooming products out there, these aren’t necessarily the best for your skin. Facial skin tends to be oilier and more sensitive when compared to the skin on your body. Therefore, avoid using a regular bath soap on that precious face and opt for a gentle Face Cleanser instead. Our Face Cleanser contains Salicylic Acid and Pea Protein to exfoliate and revitalise the skin thus, reducing roughness. Antioxidants like Acai extracts and Wheat Protein prevent inflammation and oil build-up.
Post Shower Grooming Routine
Another key aspect in your grooming regimen is the beard. Whether you go with a full-on beard, a distinguished moustache or a clean slate, commit to it and keep it groomed. Two days of scruff can be attractive but, two weeks of ungroomed, patchy beard growth can look unappealing. If you are a regular shaver, we recommend that you switch to a post-shower shaving routine versus a pre-shower one. This helps open up your pores and prepare your skin for a closer, more comfortable shave.
We have developed and enhanced our daily shave grooming regimen by breaking it down into 4 steps- Prepare, Lather, Shave, Restore. We have always advocated the benefits of a single-blade razor over those of typical multi-blade cartridge razors (Read more). Our Precision Safety Razor is designed based on this philosophy and is guaranteed to deliver smooth strokes and ultimate shaving comfort.
If you’re planning a bearded look, we have a number of options for all beard sizes depending on your dedication towards your whiskers. All our beard grooming products come in two fragrance options and are crafted with only the finest ingredients.
If you’re going with a stubble we would recommend our Thyme/Cedarwood infused Stubble Oil - a light, non-greasy leave-in formula to keep your stubble hydrated throughout the day. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that alleviate itchiness and soothe your skin.
If a short to medium-length beard suits your style, we recommend our shea butter and keratin enriched Beard Butter. It helps detangle, moisturise and settle wayward whiskers.
This is the moment when you’re standing in front of the mirror, running your hands through your hair while trying beta versions of yourself, still finalising your final look. What you do from here is make or break.
For many men the idea of including a tinted moisturiser in their routine is one step away from swapping their trunks for Speedos, an underrated but essential element in your grooming routine. A light Face Moisturiser like ours is loaded with essential oils that repair cracked skin and forms a protective layer to seal in skin moisture.
Get your moustache grooming on point for special occasions with this styling wax, formulated for excellent styling performance, volume addition and frizz-control. Natural extracts allow for flexible long-lasting hold without drying out your facial hair.
As it’s the wedding season, looking your very best is an absolute priority. But treat everyday like it's an occasion, and you never know when your stars might align and you’re sharing an uber with Gigi Hadid. Be prepared and we are rooting for you.
