The King's Coronation - Men's Grooming
As we look back through history, one event that stands out as an occasion for men to showcase their impeccable grooming regimes is a king's coronation. From the perfectly groomed hair to the immaculate beard, the coronation was a time to show off one's dedication to grooming. While we may not all be royalty, it is important for men today to follow a grooming regime for a polished and confident appearance.
Here are some tips that men can follow to achieve a grooming regime fit for a king:
- Invest in a good skincare routine – decent products for your skincare regime is so important when it comes to skin health. Sticking to a simple 3-step routine will do wonders – Cleanse, Exfoliate and Moisturise.
Cleanse morning and night – A thorough cleanse first thing in the morning and before you go to bed is key to keeping skin healthy, refreshed, and clean. We recommend Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel which is infused with Balm Mint that has anti-inflammatory properties to keep skin fresh and radiant.
Exfoliate twice per week – Exfoliating is important for your skincare routine as it scrubs away dead skin cells that can be sat on the surface of your skin, leaving it looking dull and sometimes flaky. Aim to exfoliate twice per week to help prevent breakouts and encourage smoother, softer and brighter complexions. We recommend Daily Microfoliant by Dermalogica which is a rice-based exfoliating powder that turns to a paste-like consistency when in contact with water and is ideal for all skin types.
Moisturise morning with SPF and use a night cream before bed - Using a moisturiser with SPF during the day is crucial for optimal skin health and keeping skin healthy and youthful – even in colder months UV rays can still sneak up on skin and cause damage. For during the day we recommend Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF30 and for a nourishing, relaxing night cream whilst you rest, the Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon Night Gel-Cream is perfect.
- A strong haircare routine – hair care is not just about looking good; it is also about feeling good from the inside out. When it comes to men's hair grooming, taking care of your hair can have many benefits beyond just appearance. A good hair grooming routine can promote healthy hair growth, prevent scalp problems, boost self-confidence, and create a distinguished and polished appearance.
Shampoo – Use a quality shampoo to wash your hair every two to three days, we recommend the Aveda Men Pure-Formance Shampoo to massage into your scalp to remove build-up dirt and oil, then rinse thoroughly with warm water, leaving your hair clean and refreshed.
Style – There are lots of different products for hair styling such as pomades, pastes, waxes or gels so its really a personal preference for what kind of look you want. We recommend Dapper Dan Matt Paste for an all-round product with a strong yet flexible hold that is suitable for a range of styles such as quiffs, messy style or partings. For a natural, matte texture – the Dapper Dan Sea Salt Spray is an easy styling product to spray straight onto damp hair or for bendable texture with a satin finish, the Paul Mitchell Flexible Style Spray Wax is perfect for a more defined look.
Beard care – If you have a beard, opt for a decent beard oil such as Redken Brews Beard Oil to keep your beard nourished and smelling great.
- Smell Confident – A good fragrance is key to a daily grooming routine and can help to put you in a positive mindset for the day ahead. We recommend Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme for a fresh fragrance that smells masculine and warm.
- Keep nails in top form – Good nail health reduces the risk of infections and other nail-related illnesses as well as being visually appealing. By maintaining good nail health, you may be able to promote healthy growth and prevent issues such as splitting, peeling or brittleness. The OPI ProSpa Cuticle Oil To Go is perfect for applying before bed to help plump skin and strengthen nails.
After diving into the many aspects of men's grooming, it's evident that a good regimen is not only achievable but also beneficial for any man. It begins with prioritizing our skin and hair care routine to present a polished and put-together appearance, taking time to choose products that complement our natural features and investing in high-quality products that can help us achieve that feel-good look. Self-care practices such as facial cleanses and manicures are not only for women but also for men who deserve it.
In conclusion, male grooming is more than just looking good. It's about cultivating self-confidence, presenting our best selves, and feeling great in our own skin.
