Whether a fancy work event or a festive night out with friends, your social calendar is at its peak at this time of year. Unfortunately, the cold, unpredictable weather combined with city congestion and grime can leave us looking a little worse for wear. Yes, you may have just purchased a brand-new suit for your party, but what about you?
First things first, start with your face. The days of getting away with a splash of cold water in the morning are, thankfully, time past. For gleaming skin, gently wash your face with a scrub at least a day before the event. It’s best to scrub after a shower as the warm water will have opened your pores, allowing for a more effective clean. Next step, apply moisturiser. As men’s skin is more prone to oiliness, opt for a non-greasy or mattifying cream. If you’ve had a particularly “busy” weekend that’s left you with dark circles, use an eye cream to rejuvenate the skin, reduce puffiness and combat against the general signs of fatigue.
