We get it. Life can get busy.
Social events, weddings, parties, work functions… it can be never ending.
The worst thing is realising you’ve got the biggest meeting of your career, or your going to be immortalised in photographs at your best friend's wedding and you’ve done nothing to prepare.
These tips, will help you get groomed and ready at the drop of a hat all year round.
It’s never too late to get on the natural skincare bandwagon, but make sure your routine is sorted a month or so before a big event.
The last thing you want is an awful rash, or irritated skin you can’t let settle before the big day. Give your skin time to adjust to the new routine for best results.
Take it from us:
Sure, we’re ever so proud of that shadow that grows along our jaw line but not so much when it comes scruffy and patchy.
If you want to look fresh and your best at all times, you have to know how to leave your skin in the best condition and ensure that whatever hair is leftover is well treated and moisturised.
Our number one tip? If you’re going to shave, don’t do it the day before. Do it the dayof in two parts, shave with the grain and then shave against the grain. This leaves a smooth and clean finish.
We’re working on shave kit for sensitive skin, so stay in touch (sign up to the newsletter) to find out how to avoid rashes and razor bumps with HESO.
It’s best to also avoid products that are heavily perfumed and that contain irritants like alcohol and dyes.
Lastly, make sure that your razor is sharp and clean before each shave for the best results.
Take care of your hair by washing it with a gentle shampoo that won’t dry out your scalp.
Make sure you prepare your hair cut and leave enough time to ensure it looks its best, whether you want it cut a few weeks before the event or a few days before it’s up to you. But if you want the best salon, book early!
There is such thing as too much cologne, so picking the right one is essential. Plan your signature scent a few weeks before the big event so you know how it works with your skin.
On the day of the event, make sure you have used a clean and fresh deodorant that isn’t too overpowering and doesn’t contain irritants (Woohoo All Natural Deodorant paste is our go-to).
Go in with a spray or two of your signature cologne, and you’ll be getting compliments all night.
Dapper dude repertoire, sorted.
It’s a fact: facial hair can tell you a lot about a man. Whether he lives in the jungle or on camera. Whether he’s a corporate bloke or a father of three. Regardless, for most of us lads, grooming can be a magical myth we can never get right.
Women often get told (usually by their grandmas who wash their face in leftover cabbage water, we know…go figure!) how important it is to take care of their skin from an early age. Men - not so much. But wait…you don’t get off scot-free.
The downside of shaving can be the razor bumps and acne that ensue after the job is done. Not only can they magically appear after you’ve shaved, but can become painful when new hair begins to grow in.
