How To Go About Your Daily Grooming Routine

Here is how to go about your daily grooming routine:
1- Cleanse: Cleansing removes dead skin cells from pores. Wash your face with lukewarm water. Don’t use soap and cold water.
2- Tone: Toners effectively seal pores and mop up any excess grease, especially suitable for guys with oily skin. Use alcohol-free formula as anything too harsh will strip the skin’s natural barrier.
3- Moisturize: After cleansing and toning comes rehydration. Moisturizers have an immediate impact on the way skin looks and feels as they help the skin’s barrier retain water.

4- Eyes: Applying an eye product mornings and evenings is very important as eye skin is very thin. You need to protect it from climate changes, allergies and pollution. Apply a small amount to your finger and press the product across the bony ridge just above the eye socket, moving from the inside out in one smooth stroke. Then go across the bone beneath the eye.
5- Shave: The perfect shave depends on the right technique coupled with the right tools. Invest in a real badger hair brush as it has the unique ability to absorb hot water, which creates the most luxurious lather. It also gently exfoliates the skin before you shave. After steaming your face with a hot towel, apply the shaving cream with the badger brush using large circular motions. Shave at a 45- degree angle while following the grain and avoid any jagged or overlapping strokes.
6- Scent: Too much perfume is as bad as little. Avoid applying any cologne to the areas that you have just shaved as the alcohol content will increase irritation. Apply to the wrists or the back of the neck instead. If you have sensitive skin and react badly to cologne, simply spray your clothes.
