Grooming is an art form in itself. Gone are the days where it was considered emasculating for a man to take time and care in his appearance. In our current climate, traditional gender roles are increasingly challenged, lending access to freedom of expression; gentlemen around the globe are taking pride in their appearance. But with all this freedom, it is not always easy to fulfil these desires without the right grooming regime, products or tools.
It should not have to come down to the hours spent on your daily grooming routine, rather it should be a leisurely, simplified process aided by well selected products and tools. Here are some grooming tips for a quick, simple and pleasurable experience.
Best shaving products if you shave daily
Most men prefer to maintain their facial hair, either through trimming or to shave it off completely, ideally on a daily basis. Therefore, it is vital that they are armed with the right tools to help make the shaving routine more comfortable. We recommend these luxury items for this purpose:
Complete with Mach III head and an aluminium handle, which is intelligently weighted to ensure a flawless shave.
No.88 Shave Brush is made with the finest badger hair, which provide extremely soft-touch bristles. This is paired with a solid aluminium base.
Our stylish Oxford & Cambridge Shaving Set & Stand is a luxurious buy. The sleek silver aluminium stand is elegantly curved and bold in design. Whilst classic in concept, the minimalist aesthetic means it is versatile to suit both contemporary and traditional bathrooms, shower and wet-rooms.
Treatments for the skin
It is important for everyone to moisturise. Men particularly should take great care of their skin pre and post shave.
A good skin moisturiser for the face can be found in Kiehl’s Facial Fuel – it supplies a surge of needed moisture to the daily routine. It is vitamin-enriched, non- oily and energising.
Use bath oil to soften the rest of the skin. We recommend Trio Of Bath Oil (No.88, Oxford & Cambridge and Cuba) 3x50ml from our range. Fragranced with natural essential oils, add three to four shakes of bath oil into still water. When immersed in the infused bath water, your pores will be gently opened and skin will be cleansed and delicately fragranced.
Use a hydrating body wash such as our Oxford & Cambridge Hydrating Body Wash 300ml to prevent dryness and protect the skin.
Invest in a good quality mouthwash, floss daily, and brush your teeth at least twice a day. Having a strong set of teeth and fresh breath are vital for keeping a man’s appearance stylish and presentable.
Take care of the lips. A nourishing lip balm used daily will help keep flaky lips at bay.
Invest in Quality Products
This is a lesson that can be applied throughout life, but it bears repeating here. While you might be saving a few pounds in the short term by investing in a low cost aftershave or shaving set, in the long term it won’t prove to be so economical due to required replacement when it fails to live up to its purpose. It’s best to opt for high-quality, to ensure resilience as well as the added benefit of making the grooming experience a lot more comfortable.
Choose a signature scent
Owning a defining scent that reminds others of your presence is a powerful tool to make a lasting impression. Get your signature scent right by reading our blog dedicated to how to find and wear your signature scent. There is nothing sexier than a man who smells as great as he looks.
Regular Haircuts and maintain a healthy scalp
Hair must not be forgotten due to its influence on your appearance. Keep your hair styled and presentable, with regular visits to the barber shop. It is a good idea to treat your scalp weekly to avoid flakes and dandruff. Buying the right shampoo will make a huge difference to the desired texture of your hair.
