5 WAYS TO UP YOUR GROOMING ROUTINE
By Ebony-Renee Baker, 30 August 2020
If you aren’t already exfoliating, consider this your new skincare task. We’re CONSTANTLY shedding dead skin cells and there’s nothing worse than letting that build up on your face 😳So, use a scrub a couple of times a week so that your skin has less backup and fewer blackheads. We love this NIP+FAB option, cos it has glycolic acid (a powerful exfoliant) and aloe vera, so your skin will come out of it looking and feeling fresh.
Whether or not you use makeup, cleansing is the most basic (and most vital) part of your skincare routine. You don’t need an expensive cleanser to do the job either; just choose one that’s tailored for your skin type. For instance, this Bulldog face wash is perfect if you have oily skin. It removes excess oil like a boss and leaves your skin clearer and cleaner. If your skin’s on the drier side, try this Elemis cleanser or this Garnier face wash if you’re prone to acne 😉
You might be thinking, ‘obviously I need moisturiser... everyone knows that 🙄’, but did you know that you could be using the wrong one? Unlike body wash (we see you using shampoo from head to toe 👀) you can easily go wrong when it comes to your moisturiser's ingredients. Top tip: when you're shopping on ASOS, scroll down and check the product description before you add to bag! The above moisturiser from Dr. Dennis Gross has vitamin B3 for the optimal amount of moisture, and works to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, dryness and more. For different skin types and issues, you can browse other options here.
Face packs for all genders! 👏 Face packs for all genders! 👏 IYKYK, right? If you want to revitalise your skin on those duller-feeling days or soothe your mood when self-care is on the agenda, just whip out a face pack or sheet mask... and light a candle while you're at it. Like any skincare product, different face packs serve different purposes. Try these fun Anatomicals ones for an added glow and nourishment. Don't be surprised if everyone wants to stroke your face after this.
ICYMI, grooming isn’t just for skin! No matter how short or long, your hair deserves some love, too. Beyond the ol’ shampoo and conditioner, hair masks are the perfect in-between step to improve your mane long-term. This Shea Moisture mask is designed to strengthen brittle, dry hair while naturally reinforcing your damaged bits. Just lather it on, watch an online video or two, and then rinse it out. Magic.
