It's not enough to simply have the perfect outfit and hairstyle, make sure that you're groomed aptly for the end of the year's social engagements too. Don't just take our word for it though, we've acquired the expert knowledge of Murdock's Master Barber, Alex Glover, who'll ensure that your grooming regime will leave you perfectly prepared for your grand entrance.


The most important way to prep for the party season? Moisturise! With biting temperatures to contend with, prevent chapped skin by opting for a skin-quenching moisturiser. Murdock recommend our own Daily Facial Moisturiser for its carefully selected balance of ingredients. Pine and lemon oils will redress oil levels in the skin, while the anti-inflammatory herb, Horsetail, will counteract existing damage.


Banish flaky face by using Murdock’s Exfoliating Facial Scrub to reveal a brighter skin tone with Pumice granules and a fruit Alpha Hydroxy Acid. It'll help you top up your natural levels of skin oil too as it doubles as a nourishing mask with aloe and jojoba seed oil both on hand to provide vital moisture.


Avoid flaky skin on areas other than your face by remembering to lavish your body with some attention too! Hands are constantly visible and a non verbal tool of communication, so Murdock recommends its Moisturising Hand Cream for preventing flaky fingers. Packed with shea butter, rosemary, almond oil and macadamia oil this formulation is good good, it will work on just about anywhere that needs a hit of instant moisture.


Yes, Movember may have finished, but there's no reason that those of you who have a moustache should pay any less attention to it. Try a product such as this heat softened Marvellous Moustache Wax (which hardens at room temperature) as it will allow you to easily mould your moustache into your desired style.


Consider not just caring for your skin for the party season, keep your hirsute appendage as soft as possible with a lavish daily application of Murdock’s Beard Moisturiser. Aloe will soften beard hair, menthol will relieve itching and refresh the skin, whilst the fragrant delights of oakmoss add an eastern inspired scent. This beard moisturiser also has a natural light hold, so after application gently brush your facial hair into place with a beard brush.
