10 Self-Care Essentials for Men

FEATURE: QUICK READ
Words by Joseph Bobowicz

Dedicating a little time to grooming, health and relaxation goes a long way towards restoring a sense of wellbeing. Whether it’s a daily spritz of your preferred scent or the rush of endorphins from a lunchtime run, small rituals are about recognising that you deserve a break – be it a moment to release or, quite simply, a good night’s sleep. Start your reset with these wellness staples.

A Little Extra

Are you getting all your vitamins? Supplements are an effortless way to prevent the nutritional gaps that are common in many diets. Form Nutrition’s Multi Multivitamins cover every base, supporting the immune system with vitamins B6, B12, D3 and iron, as well as improving your body’s absorption of nutrients courtesy of black pepper extract. Suitable for vegans.

Face It

Wise guys never neglect their faces. Why? Science shows that men’s skin, compared to women’s, generally has larger pores and produces more sebum – a natural oil that can cause breakouts. This is where serums come in. 111Skin’s 3 Phase Anti-Blemish Booster regulates sebum production and refines pores, paving the way for a clearer complexion. Mix a few drops in with your moisturiser et voilà! Fresh-faced and ready to go.

Day to Night

Cleansed skin is the grooming world’s tabula rasa. A clean slate, it will welcome products like the QMS Vitamin Moisturiser Day & Night Cream with open arms. By day, this intensive hero hydrates skin, prevents sun damage and protects collagen from free radicals – unstable molecules that are responsible for its deterioration. By night, it relaxes skin and stimulates its natural regeneration process.

Sharpen Up

A good shave sets you up for the day. Truefitt & Hill is Guinness World Record holder of the oldest barbershop, so a safe bet for traditional razor designs and refillable shaving soaps. For facial hair, its Conditioning Beard Oil is second to none, reducing irritation and nourishing hair and skin alike.

On the Move

Exercise benefits the mind as well as the body. A quick run can instantly improve your mood and help you to better handle life’s curveballs. Smartwatches are an effective way to monitor your progress. Montblanc’s Summit Lite, for example, records your fitness, energy and stress levels – adapting your workout regime accordingly.

Run a Bath

Time in the tub is as much about slowing down as it is about hygiene. Put distractions like social media and emails to one side, and focus on your breath and the aromas of each candle, shower gel and shampoo. Byredo and Frédéric Malle cover the latter with a touch of magnolia here and a little tuberose there. Don’t forget a plush towel to end things on a high.
