Spring Grooming Essentials for Men

Spring is finally here, which means one important thing – it’s about time you changed your grooming routine and switched to more spring-friendly products. Yes, we know that you probably see that as unnecessary or irrelevant, but trust us – it’s important to get it done as soon as possible. However, if you don’t really know how to make that happen, just stay with us and keep on reading. Here are four spring grooming essentials every man needs in his bathroom this season, so check them out and enjoy your transformation!


A luxurious shower gel for the ultimate spa experience

Spring is the perfect time to let go of all those thick and heavy shower creams and switch to lightweight gels, so be sure you do that right away. Needless to say, we know that the majority of men pick a particular gel just because it smells great or because it’s cheap, but you should be smarter than that. So, start reading through the ingredient list and find a product that really works for your skin. You probably don’t know that artificially added fragrances and perfumes can dry out your skin, so pick a shower gel that contains highly beneficial ingredients like shea butter or sandalwood oil. Apart from smelling really fantastic, these will nourish your skin to the max without stripping it of its natural oils, which is exactly what matters most!


A gentle face wash appropriate for your skin type

Another important product you need to have in your bathroom is a gentle face wash. Contrary to popular belief, men also need to take extra care of their skin, and you know what? Skincare isn’t just for the girls, so make sure to determine your skin type and find some good product that can do a decent job for your skin. Apart from cleansing your face regularly, you should also use a gentle scrub on a daily basis, but you think that this is too much, there’s always an option of buying a product that does a double duty. A face wash that cleanses and exfoliates at the same time is a fantastic idea, and all you have to do is to squirt it into the palm of your hand, mix it with water, and then wash your face with it. Just rinse it off with lukewarm water and voila – your skin’s ready for spring!


Pamper your hair with natural products


Even though a lot of guys are actually too lazy to use separate products for their hair, face, and body, the fact is that your regular shower gel is highly unlikely to be good for your hair. This is exactly why you should switch to natural hair products and opt for the ones which are specifically designed for your hair type. Shampoos and conditioners with natural and organic ingredients are definitely the best choice, especially if they have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agents that soothe itching and redness, as well as reduce flakiness. Of course, these won’t dry out your hair and make it prone to damage, which is another important factor you should take into consideration. Ingredients like argan oil and jojoba oil will unclog your pores, repair your hair follicles, and therefore, contribute to a healthy scalp. So be sure to find them on the ingredient list and you’ll do a great job.


The inevitable beard oil & beard balm combo

Everyone knows that beards are really in style these days, and if you’re one of those men who simply adore their scruff, you should know that a combo consisting of beard oil and beard balm can do wonders for your facial hair. First of all, beard oil can help you keep your wild hairs under control, while giving your beard a sleek look at the same time. Besides that, this product can also nourish the skin underneath your beard and hydrate it to the max, so don’t forget to buy it if you already haven’t. On the other hand, beard balm can tame your scruff and give it a beautiful shine, which is essential if you want your beard to be noticed. It will also give it a subtle fresh scent, which is what your significant other will appreciate the most. Of course, be sure to use the right amount of it, because using too much beard balm can result in a really greasy and messy look you definitely want to avoid.


As you can see, each of the aforementioned products is an absolute must this spring, which is why every man should own them in his bathroom. All you have to do is to find the products appropriate for your skin and (facial) hair, and you’ll see an instant improvement!
