Get the very best out of your grooming routine this Spring with some key essential products and tips that will put you one step ahead of the rest. Prepare your face, body, beard and hair for the summer season, look your best and know your routine.
For many of us, spring is often regarded as the happiest and most optimistic season of the year. With the cold winter months behind us and the hot summer fast approaching, it is easy to see why. The transition from your winter moisturisers to a more toned down spring moisturiser should be a key consideration. Start looking for skin care products that offer specifically formulated ingredients that guard against the sun and light breeze. Remember to opt for a good SPF formula, as the sun can be a lot more harmful than you think, during this deceptive season.
If you live in the UK, then you’ll most likely associate the spring season with banks holidays – and lots of them! During the bank holiday/Easter season, many of us find we are consuming a lot of alcohol and late nights out. Although this time of year is fun, try not to let it get in the way of a good grooming routine that will help you look and feel healthier in preparation for the summer. Get hold of a good anti-ageing eye cream that is designed to combat dark circles and wrinkles. Also, don't forget to drink plenty of water!
Stay hydrated, keep your nails trimmed and regularly condition your facial hair, should you have any. Also, for men that are bald, make sure you keep your scalp moisturised with a suitable sun factor – too many men underestimate the dramatic change in climate from winter to spring. Even something as dramatic as this can often go unnoticed, therefore key preparation should be a vital aspect of your spring grooming routine.
Believe it or not, spring is actually the best season for your hair. Summer tends to make us sweat more, resulting in salted, unconditioned hair. Winter has a nasty habit of drying out our hair, therefore spring offers the best balance, helping you keep your hair in better condition, naturally. So, to get the very best out of your hair, try not to wash it every day - once every other day should suffice. Pick a shampoo with excellent conditioning properties that will allow your hair to blossom, as everything tends to do during this time of year.
