Most men shave at least once every couple of days and yet, for something as common as it is, many men still don’t quite understand the ins and outs of shaving. Whether you’re already a pro or are working with a barebones routine that just gets the job done there’s probably a lot you still have to learn about how to extract the most from these early morning minutes so you can keep your facial hair under control and your face looking fresh.
We’ve all experienced that post haircut disappointment after dropping $40 on a haircut and getting something that’s far from what you wanted. But who’s at fault here? While it’s possible that you could have just picked a not-so-great barbershop, even the best barbers need to know what you actually want in order to give it to you. The thing here is, it’s often not that easy to communicate what that thing is. There are a few things that your barber needs to know during your visit and here we’ll show you how to show them.
Skincare is very commonly seen as one of the more involved stages of taking care of yourself however this is just a big misconception. Making sure your skin looks its best is a lot simpler than most people would guess. Whilst it’s true that you would get the best results from using a million little products and micromanaging when and where you apply each one individually, the results of only using two or three products aren’t all that far from using a dozen.
So, you’ve already worked out what hairstyle works best for you (or if you haven’t, check out our article HERE first) but how do you actually go about achieving it? There’s a myriad of products on the market and here we will look at the most common and the most useful of them all. (more…)
We recently caught up with Matt Gillman, the founder and joint director of Handsome Skincare.
How did it all begin?
“It all started when I sold my business and I didn’t know what I was going to do next. I had some money to work with and went to my accountant and he’s like “So, what are you going to do now?” I didn’t know so I wrote a list and handsome men’s skincare was one of the ideas on this list. Funnily enough, my accountant bought a lot of things off Strawberry Net – who knew he’d buy skincare?”
