It’s man vs. beard
Treat the top and bottom halves of your face equally for clearer skin and a well-groomed beard. Cleanse and refresh the skin, buff away ingrown hairs and trim and condition your beard with our grooming guide to keeping your face in good nick.
CLEANSE AND BUFF
Keep the skin above your beard clear by washing with a refreshing cleanser. Follow with an exfoliator, and concentrate on buffing around the beard line to encourage hairs to grow in the right direction. Regular exfoliating will help to free any ingrown hairs and prevent future razor bumps on your face, for a smooth, clear finish – both sides of the beard.
MURAD ESSENTIAL C
Start your routine by using a good cleanser. Murad Essential C Cleanser is packed with Vitamin C, a brilliant brightener to perk up dull patches. The nourishing formula also helps protect against free radicals, which can damage the skin surface and cause signs of premature ageing.
Exfoliating is essential for freeing ingrown hairs, which can appear around the beard line from frequent shaving. Massage the skin with Clarins Exfoliating Cleanser, a soap-free wash that sloughs away dead cells without drying out the skin.
SISLEY BUFF WASH
If you’re on the sensitive side, use a gentle exfoliator like Sisley Buff Wash. Lavender extracts naturally soothe inflammation and take down redness, whilst Vitamin-C-packed orange brightens dullness and fights the dulling effects of pollution on the skin.
TRIM AND SHAVE
Shaving can be abrasive on the skin, dragging course hairs back and forth across your face and causing razor rash, ingrown hairs and grazes. Prevent all of the above by using a pre-shave oil or cream, minimising scratching on the skin for a smoother, more comfortable finish.
Containing natural, calming ingredients, make your shave as comfortable as possible with Aveda Pure-Formance Shave Cream; a rich moisturising foam that contains anti-oxidants to nourish the skin beneath the beard, for a soothing and hydrating treatment that lasts post-shave.
ORIGINS EASY SLIDER
Using sesame and jojoba oils, Origins Easy Slider Pre-Shave oil turns even tough stubble soft, making for an easier shave and friction-free glide. The ultra-hydrating formula floods the skin with moisture, whilst still feeling lightweight, and softens course hair to prevent ingrown hairs and stubble rash.
BABYLISS FOR MEN SUPER
Big and bushy or short and sharp - whatever your beard style, get the precise lines or textured effect you need using a suits-all shaver. Babyliss For Men is lightweight and easy to use, helping you reach all angles easily, to create precise lines or achieve a quick, simple trim, keeping your beard in shape at all times.
Calm sensitive skin, stop shaving bumps and prevent razor rash with a topical treatment. Repair and protect skin with a moisturising formula to hydrate, containing soothing ingredients to prevent any beard-y problems.
LAB SERIES FUTURE RESCUE
If skin tends to feel dry and tight after shaving, finish with a hydrating serum to treat and repair. Lab Series Future Rescue Repair Serum is ultra-moisturising, and has great anti-aging properties - smoothing skin for a softer, plump and wrinkle-free finish.
KIEHL’S ULTIMATE MAN
RAZOR BUMP RELIEF
Shaving can feel abrasive and rough on the skin. To prevent any skin problems from your shave, try Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Razor Bump Relief, which contains soothing ginger to take down any skin inflammation, whilst also absorbing excess oil, which can contribute to blocked pores and cause ingrown hairs. Apply to a cotton pad and sweep over skin pre-moisturiser.
If you find skin tends to be more sensitive post-shaving, use a heavier aftershave cream. Penhaligons Bayolea Soothing Balm is an ultra-moisturising, healing formula, which helps any cuts, grazes, or razor burns heal quicker. The rich formula also absorbs excess sebum, to help prevent blocked pores.
Soften and tame wiry, wayward hairs with a beard oil or conditioner. Treat your beard to a nourishing formula that will improve the condition of your beard, soften course hair and encourage it to grow just how you like it.
CLINIQUE FOR MEN 2 IN 1
SKIN HYDRATOR BEARD
A beard conditioner works in the same way as a hair conditioner – it softens the hair, making your beard a little easier to manage once you step out of the shower. Clinique For Men 2 in 1 Skin Hydrator Beard Conditioner softens and smoothes the hair, whilst soothing and strengthening the skin underneath, making future shaves a little easier.
ACQUA DI PARMA
Serums aren’t just for skin – they’re just as nourishing for hair follicles as they are for skin cells, too. Acqua Di Parma Collezione Barbiere Beard Serum contains sweet almond and grape seed oils, which are known for their emollient properties, which help soften beard hair, making it more manageable and tame it into behaving.
LA PRAIRIE SKIN CAVIAR
ESSENCE IN LOTION
If your skin is in need of a boost, La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence is lightweight, yet extremely nourishing, and helps to increase firmness and elasticity of the skin. It’s also non-perfumed too, so perfect for sensitive skin in need of some TLC.
