You might not know it, but your face took a pounding today. In fact, it takes a pounding every day. All those UV rays and polluting fumes, and all that laughing and frowning – it’s a miracle our mushes haven’t just slid off our skulls with fatigue. Reason enough to treat it right, treat it good and start getting into face masks, then. A Bandito 30-minute cream mask is a great first step for any guy: developed in Korea, this cream mask with lemon extract and vitamin E shrinks down the appearance of your pores to even out your complexion, and it’ll get you feeling super radiant and refreshed. Gloriously cheap and really easy to use, too.
That "beach body" you’ve spent three months sculpting? That has cost you litres of blood, gallons of sweat and oceans of tears? It deserves to look its best, not just at the very end of your ocean-side holiday, but at the start of it, too. And that’s where a little early self-tanning comes in. Take a moderate amount of inspiration from the bronzed guys of the bodybuilding world, who strategically tan up to give their shredded bods extra definition, and incorporate Bondi Sands Self-Tanning Foam into your pre-holiday grooming routine. You’ll look 10/10 from day one.
A concealer pen
When you’ve got a 4pm meeting with a heck of a lot riding on it, the last thing you want to be worried about is the idea of all your boss’s attention going on the little angry Vesuvius erupting from your T-zone. And that, right there, is your justification for keeping a concealer pen like the L’Oréal Paris Touche Magique Concealer in your desk drawers. A little touch of this flesh Tipp-Ex on your blemish to tuck it away outta sight, and you’ll feel a hundred times better about that all-important face-to-face. Go on, pal – get in that meeting room and nail that sucker.
A cleansing brush
For the same reasons you use a proper toothbrush to scrub your teeth and not a dishrag, you should be ditching the gross flannel and investing in an electric facial cleansing brush like the Foreo Luna. Not only does this compact cotton pad-sized gadget emit sonic pulses to blast the filth and dead skin from your face, and not only does it stimulate your beard hairs to help with a closer shave, but its smart tech is all about anti-ageing and works to prevent breakouts, too.
