We're all pretty adapted to our usual routines, right? You might think you’ve covered all bases.
But, unfortunately, it can be pretty easy to fall into some not-so-great habits. And, yes, the art of grooming is largely trial and error- it involves experimenting with different products to see which ones work the best for you.
But, instead of making some pesky grooming mistakes along the way, let's dispel some common grooming myths with a quick true or false assessment!
- 'It's ok to dry shave.'
The biggest drawback to dry shaving is skin irritation with either an electric or blade razor. Side effects from dry shaving with a razor can include dry, flaky skin, itching, razor burn and shaving bumps, and ingrown hairs.
The simplest way to protect your skin is by using good quality shaving gel.
Our Hydrating Shaving Gel guarantees a closer-than-close shave. Enriched with Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel and Argan Extract, it effectively nourishes, protects and repairs your skin for a comfortable, burn and irritation-free shave.
- 'You should wear sun cream everyday.'
It might not feel like a hot, sunny day throughout the year, but ultraviolet rays are always present, which cause sun damage and skin cancer. The clouds do not block ultraviolet rays, so you’re still exposed to UV rays even if the sun isn't visible. Sun cream blocks these rays and reduces your chances of getting a sunburn.
- 'There's nothing you can about dandruff.'
The itching and flaking of dandruff can almost always be controlled. Regular cleansing with a gentle shampoo can help reduce oil and skin cell buildup. People with drier hair should shampoo less and use moisturising conditioner regularly.
Lucky for you, we're already on the case.
Our Revive Moisture Shampoo moisturises the hair AND scalp for a perfectly flake-free finish thanks to pro-vitamin B5.
Our Deep Moisture Conditioner reaps the benefits of Vitamin E's natural antioxidant properties, which support a healthy scalp and hair. It helps reduce oxidative stress and free radicals that cause the hair follicle cells in the scalp to break down. In addition, sandalwood Essential Oil's antibacterial properties soothe the scalp, eliminate flaking and help prevent infections.

- 'Moisturiser should be used twice a day.'
Healthy skin is the aim, so a soft, smooth moisturiser is in the game!
Most skincare professionals suggest moisturising twice a day: once in the morning and once at night. This ensures your skin's moisture will remain constant throughout the day and whilst you sleep.
Our-best selling Revitalising Moisturiser has got your back with this one.
It was one of the first products we developed and has a whole host of hero characteristics:
- Suitable for both dry and oily skin types
- Promotes skin regeneration and minimises fine lines and wrinkles
- Rejuvenates dry and tired skin for a clear and smooth complexion
- 'There's no right time to wash your face.'
As a general rule, you should be washing your face twice a day. Throughout the day, your skin goes through a lot - and since it's thinner on the face than the rest of the body, and so is more vulnerable to damage. However, if you're short on time, the best time to use your face wash is in the evening. At night, you want to remove dirt, oil, and particular matter accumulated during the day.
Our Cleansing Face Wash will awaken your senses in the morning and wash away daily impurities in the evening and our Peppermint & Tea Tree Reviving Face Wash will give your skin the invigorating start to the day it needs.
To help explain this in a bit more detail, we've created a blog post all about why you need to be washing your face everyday.
