The Gentlemen’s Curb
It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. I hope that all is well with you this evening. Today was a long day, but I am not complaining. A lot of work was accomplished. If you want to stay in touch with us, make sure that you email email@example.com. Keep reading, we have some information to share.
We’re promised that warm weather is right around the corner but wherever you are in the world, you’ll be well aware of the impact the climate has on your skin. You may not be particularly vain but no one wants to feel the uncomfortable sensation that is dry, tight skin and the impact an icy, cold blast can have on your freshly shaved face.
That’s why we’ve put together this first aid skin survival kit for men who really don’t want to spend too much time thinking about it. We’ve searched health and lifestyle bloggers to get the latest information on skin care and how you can maintain your look while keeping it low key.
Spend A Little, Gain A Lot
You don’t have to spend hundreds on the latest skincare routine but you should invest in some quality products. You wouldn’t buy a second rate phone. So treat your skin with the same respect and you’ll reap the benefits.At the lower end of the budget we recommend Nivea, a tried and tested brand where you’ll be able to pick up moisturizers and shaving products alongside deodorant and other toiletries. If you’re willing to make a little more of an investment then splash out on Haeckel’s Eco Marine Extract Facial Cream. Don’t be fooled by all the natural ingredients, this is no lightweight and will add some serious hydration to your dry skin.
That might do you but you know deep down that looking after your skin is the way to go so go the extra mile and invest in some exfoliating products. The practice of exfoliating your skin at least once a week will help get rid of all the dead skin cells, help combat dry areas and reveal fresh glowing skin, even when you don’t feel either fresh or glowing on a cold morning.
Make it a part of your weekly ritual and you’ll barely even notice yourself doing it.
If you have a beard then you may already use a beard oil to keep your furry fuzz looking sharp but if not then think about investing. Beard oil does more than tame a few stray hairs, it also helps maintain the luster and shine of your facial hair and helps keep it in great condition, especially in cold weather. The knock on effect is that the skin below will also benefit from a well-maintained beard and feel less itchy.
For the clean-shaven man, protection is the name of the game. Make sure you’re using a shaving product that nourishes your face as well as giving you an easy glide. Follow up your shave with a soothing balm; don’t leave it to the mercy of the elements.
The last bathroom product you bought might have been from the bathrobes for men department five years’ ago but it’s time to up your game and start looking after that face of yours, it’s the only one you have. Nourish, care and protect and always wear sunscreen.
