With 2019 quickly approaching, many of us find ourselves making outlandish affirmations, signing up for ultra-marathons or searching for new wardrobes. But for 2019, why not resolve to make achievable changes like taking better care of yourself, being bolder, quitting smoking or upgrading your New Year grooming routine? You’d be surprised how far a new hair cut or beard style will get you to feeling refreshed.
Because we all know from experience that most New Year’s Resolutions last about as long as a hangover. A fresh grooming regime is achievable and best of all, if you don’t feel like a new man by the end of the year, you’ll look like one.
Resolve to have a good grooming routine
Even the best skincare for men products require consistent use, every day, for optimum results – kinda like when you’re busy building up that rig and making serious gains at the gym. Make it easy on yourself and begin with a starter pack, like the House Essentials Grooming Kit. Start your morning shower with the Polish Up Body & Hair Wash with cooling properties and the Purefectly Clean Face Wash which cleanses and purifies. Then, work in some of the Greater Look Face Moisturiser to reduce shine and enhance hydration and finish with the Truly Brighter Eye Balm which makes you look fresh and fired-up – even when you’re anything but. Plus, it’s carry-on friendly so you don’t have to change it up when you travel. Too easy.
Perfect your facial hair
Growing facial hair is simple – just stop shaving, innit? But for 2019, why not play at experimenting with new beard styles and maintaining those bristles in a manner that would be considered gentlemanly? It doesn’t have to be hard. Use the Get Groomed Purifying Beard Scrub enriched with charcoal to exfoliate not just your face fuzz but the skin beneath for a kiss-ready mug. A good sesh of exfoliation purifies and conditions, as well as improving the efficacy of your other grooming products to sink right in and get to work. Now that it’s squeaky clean, smooth it down with the Seriously Groomed Beard & Hair Balm to tame any unruly hair and leave it feeling nourished, conditioned and ready for styling.
Invest in your eyes
Listen, we’re all tired. We all work too hard or party too hard or just can’t sleep, it’s the symptom of our generation. But, thanks to the miracles of modern science, you don’t have to look like you do.
The skin around the eyes is thinner and much more delicate than the rest of your face, which is why it needs VIP treatment. And the good thing about eye skin care is that the skin is most receptive at night, when metabolism peaks and the body isn’t busy fending off UV rays and environmental factors. So, dab some of the Truly Brighter Eye Cream under your under eyes before you pop off to Bedfordshire and you’ll wake up looking refreshed, even if you don’t entirely feel it. So easy you can do it in your sleep.
2018: The grooming year that was
Ah, ‘twas a good year for men’s grooming, 2018. From the return of the moustache (and the clean-shaven chin) and buzzcuts to long hair for men, the foundation has been laid for a groundbreaking new year for the way us lads look. Next up in 2019? We predict make-up for men and directional hair styles such as straight-edged bobs, Caeser’s, hyper colour hair and side fringes with fades. The future has never looked brighter for blokes.
