The right work out, the right diet, the right way to relax – achieving a sense of well-being, while maintaining a busy lifestyle, can sometimes seem elusive. Factor in increasing emphasis on the right grooming regime and it can all feel rather daunting. With recent years’ spotlight on the ever-expanding male grooming industry, though, it’s never been easier to find the perfect products to elevate your repertoire.
"Fine grooming can be this simple," instructs Tom Ford, "take care of your skin, look closely at your face and use a few basic corrective techniques, and you will present your most handsome and impeccable self to the world."
Dior Homme Micro-Purifying Cleansing Gel
Effective cleansing is super-important, as moisturisers and serums work best when applied to clean skin. Dior Homme Dermo System Micro-Purifying Cleansing Gel is great for prepping skin for subsequent treatments, as it contains light exfoliating micro-particles to clarify skin, and vitamin E to soften and hydrate. Simply use a small amount of cleanser on a wet face, working the foam into skin using circular motions for a fresh, invigorating clean.
Sisleÿum For Men Global Revitalizer
An all-in-one post-shave serum for men: Sisleÿum by Sisley is specially formulated to soothe, hydrate and protect men's skin. Best applied immediately after shaving and before moisturiser, fortifying active ingredients like wild pansy and white willow firms skin and protects it from external aggressors like pollution and cold weather.
NuBo Cell Dynamic Cooling Aftershave Moisturiser SPF20
"This product is engineered to stay active for at least 12 hours after one application," explains NuBo’s Director Marina Shcherbinina. "It’s designed to calm down sensitive skin, combat dryness, ease irritation and provide protection." Use post-shave for nourishment or keep handy for long-haul flights when skin is in need of extra hydration. Plus, the SPF20 factor makes it a perfect holiday companion.
Natura Bissé Diamond Extreme Eye
Natura Bisse’s Diamond Extreme Eye is a multi-tasking product that deserves a place in all bathroom cabinets. Anti-ageing, it also minimises the signs of fatigue and stress, and revitalises and decongests the skin. "Any gentleman of any age would enjoy our Diamond Extreme Eye," says Natura Bissé’s Michael Ann Guthrie. "It’s in a pump so it’s easy to apply and it lasts forever, you really can’t over-use it. It absorbs so quickly and disappears, the only thing you can feel is that the eye is soothed and calm."
TOM FORD Conditioning Beard Oil Tobacco Vanille
Make beard maintenance a breeze with TOM FORD’s Conditioning Oil. Almond, jojoba and grapeseed oils, along with Vitamin E, blend wonderfully to create a truly caring product that will keep facial hair soft and nourished. And with the rich, sensual notes of Tobacco Vanille, you’ll no doubt want to apply this every single day. To ensure optimum oil absorption, apply after a warm shower when pores are open but on dry skin as water will affect how the oil is absorbed.
