Spring is a time for renewal and growth, and what better way to embrace this than by refreshing your grooming and skincare routine? As the weather changes and the air becomes warmer and more humid, your skin's needs may change too. Here are some tips for spring cleaning your grooming and skincare routine:
Exfoliating is an important step in any skincare routine, but it becomes even more crucial in the spring when dead skin cells can build up more quickly due to increased humidity. Exfoliating helps remove these dead skin cells, which can clog pores and dull your skin. However, be cautious not to over-exfoliate, as this can damage your skin's barrier; we recommend 1-3 times a week, depending on your skin type.
Experience irresistibly smooth skin with our Deep Cleansing Exfoliant. Our luxurious formula penetrates deep into your pores to eliminate dirt, oil, and grime while combating blackheads and acne. Ideally suited for prepping your skin for a shave to prevent ingrown hairs or quickly removing the buildup of dead skin and dirt from your beard, this exfoliant is a must-have addition to your grooming routine.
Switch to an easily absorbed moisturiser
With warmer weather comes increased humidity, making heavy moisturisers that don't soak in feel suffocating and uncomfortable. Switching to a light moisturiser can help keep your skin hydrated without feeling greasy or heavy. Our Nourishing Moisturiser is the perfect product. Combat natural skin damage with this potent anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory formula. Tea tree oil purifies the skin and relieves and fights acne, while peppermint oil cools the skin with its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, soothing irritation and inflammation.
Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen
Sunscreen is a non-negotiable part of any skincare routine, but it becomes even more important when UV radiation is at its highest in the spring and summer. Look for a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and broad-spectrum protection to protect you from UVA and UVB rays. Remember to reapply frequently every two hours or more if you're swimming or sweating.
Spring is a time of renewal, and that includes your skin. Ensure you're cleansing your skin thoroughly to remove any dirt or oil accumulated over the winter months. Start your day off right and wash away the day's impurities each night with our Cleansing Face Wash. Our formula effectively removes excess oil, dead skin, and grime from deep within your pores, leaving your skin feeling revitalised and refreshed.
Remember your body.
While it's easy to focus on your face when it comes to skincare, it's important to remember that your body needs attention too. Use a body scrub to exfoliate any dry, rough patches, and follow up with a moisturising lotion to keep your skin soft and supple. If you plan to spend more time outdoors in the spring and summer, apply sunscreen to any exposed skin, including your arms, legs, and chest.
Switch up your hair care routine.
As a man, adapting your hair care routine to the changing seasons is essential to maintain a healthy and lustrous appearance. Try using our Revive Moisture Shampoo, it disperses dirt and grime and rinses easily to leave your hair feeling squeaky clean and smelling heavenly. Deep conditioning treatments are also crucial for restoring moisture and hydration to your hair, check out our Deep Moisture Conditioner for a silky and smooth finish.
Invest in quality tools
Investing in quality grooming and skincare tools can make a massive difference in the effectiveness of your routine. Tools like the ones in our essentials range can help you stay on top of your grooming regime.
Our Bamboo Toothbrush is the perfect eco-friendly replacement for your plastic throw-away. The bamboo is 100% biodegradable and features a laser-engraved MESOA logo. Our Beard Brush is a must-have item for every bearded gent, made from bamboo with boar hair bristles. Regardless of hair type or length, it will detangle and tame your beard and stimulate growth – a win-win-win.
Dispose of expired products
Throwing out old skincare products is crucial for maintaining healthy skin, especially for men who often neglect their skincare routine. As skincare products age, their active ingredients can lose their effectiveness, and they may also become contaminated with bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. Using expired or contaminated skincare products can lead to skin irritation, breakouts, and even infections. It's important for men to regularly assess their skincare collection, check expiration dates, and dispose of any old or expired products. By doing so, they can ensure that they are using safe and effective products that will help them maintain healthy, glowing skin.
Remember your minis
As you prepare for your travels between spring and summer, remember to pack your minis. Whether exploring a new country or visiting family across the UK, mini skincare products can help you maintain your skincare routine. With your trusted skincare products in miniature form, you can keep your skin looking and feeling healthy throughout the season.
Our miniatures are perfect for those on the go, trying out new products, looking to spoil themselves or a special someone with a little bit of luxury.
