‘New Year, new you’ is a phrase that rears its ugly head but once a year. Admittedly it would be a great time to start a fresh but all your good New Year intentions should ‘start as you mean to go on’ – the same goes for your skin. All the late nights drinking what’s left of the Christmas beer stash and indulging in only the most festive of foods until post-party season your hair and body is screaming for a detox! We take a look at the top 5 grooming products to banish any signs of the good nights that have gone and will bring your hair and body into the New Year with a fresh start. You can find these great products at Brummells of London as well as other online stores.
For Your Face
Every shave is important; we trust you’ll already have found the razor of your dreams that works harmoniously with your skin. Now you’ve got that under wraps it’s time to consider other care. Your skin is more prone to breakouts, razor burn and itching after an eventful month of food and alcohol.
The natural balance of your skin may be a little off the scale – for this we of course recommend man’s best friend – water. Keeping hydrated can help maintain a healthy glow and give your skin that revival it may need. In the long run a hydrated body is a happy body, one that can repair and rejuvenate skin whilst it sleeps.
We recommend two grooming products that will change your shaving experience forever:
Pre-shave – Jack Black Face Buff Energising Scrub
