SLEEP CAN BOOST SPORTING PERFORMANCE

“A recovery strategy vital to support both health and sport performance, during all stages of the training cycle is sleep. ” Dr Nicky Keay, British Journal of Sports Medicine

Sleep not only helps the muscles and body repair after exercise, it can also boost performance. Most people need 7-9 hours of sleep every night, professional athletes 10+, but are we doing it right? You need to wake up refreshed and ready to face the day, not exhausted from tossing and turning all night.

Immediately after exercise:

Warm down – stretching after exercise reduces lactic acid and therefore improves muscle recovery
If you can face it, finish your hot shower with a blast of icy cold water, dilating the blood vessels, helping to eliminate toxins.
Don’t go down the pub for a swift pint – alcohol floods your system with toxins which your body treats as a priority, leaving less energy for recovery

Drink water to rehydrate – water is our friend – remember – 2 litres and day, more if you are doing strenuous exercise
Protein intake before bed can help with tendon and muscle recovery, but cut out the caffeine and the alcohol, both of which are stimulants likely to keep you awake and counting sheep.

Before Bed:

Eat a banana! It contains melatonin which helps you fall asleep faster. Also a nice cup of tea – think calming chamomile or perhaps peppermint, and definitely nothing caffeinated.

Put your ‘phone down. A recent study in the US found that social media use 30 minutes before bed can be associated with disturbed sleep. If you’re regularly waking up feeling sluggish, get into the habit of locking up your devices!

The bed:

Whether you like a firm or soft mattress, memory foam, springs, or a hybrid of both, get the best you can afford, and don’t wait until it’s sagging in the middle to replace it. A mattress is an investment and should last you a decade or longer, so go for a reputable make with a home trial so you can send it back if it’s not right. Make sure your pillows are firm, your sheets are cotton and consider a mattress topper for the ultimate in luxury.

The pyjamas:

Swedish brand dagsmejan has invented an exceptionally breathable fabric to make snazzy sleepwear with stretch engineered waistbands and flat seams, the upshot being that fluctuations in your body temperature are minimised while you sleep and comfort is king.

Night night all.

Sensitive skin if you’re a man is no fun.  Not only is your face is exposed to the elements every day sending your epidermis into overdrive, but as you’ve decided to shear off your winter beard in readiness for sticky summer weather, you’re probably also shaving every day, piling on the skin irritation and sensitivity.

BODY ODOUR

It’s a myth that sweat smells, in fact sweat is odourless (it’s just salty water), bacteria which live on the skin break down the sweat and it’s this process that causes the unpleasant smell. Certain areas of the body, such as the armpits & the crotch, tend to produce more body odour, as here the glands also produce proteins & oils for the bacteria to feed on.

If you think you have a body odour problem, there are simple steps to take:

Wash regularly and make sure you dry your body thoroughly. Use deodorant – we’ve had customers write in to say that Rockface 48 Hour Deodorant has really helped with body odour issues. Wear fresh clothes daily & wash your clothes regularly – and at the highest recommended temperature. Don’t overstuff your washing machine! Dry clothes quickly – bacteria can flourish in damp clothing. Natural fibres are better than synthetic.

Be prepared with an effective 48 hour deodorant, just to be on the safe side.

BYE BYE RHINOCEROS, HELLO SMOOTH, SOFT MAN SKIN

Siberian temperatures outside and dry indoor atmospheres can produce dehydrated, rough and even scaly skin. If you’ve generally ignored skincare this winter and resemble a rhinoceros, you need to get cracking now so that your inner spring man self will emerge smooth and baby soft from its chrysalis, ready to take on the warmer weather.

EXFOLIATE It’s not a swear word and it’ll do you and your rhinoceros face (and body) the world of good. Rockface Face & Body Scrub is ideal – it’s gentle on the skin and contains crushed walnuts and rice to get rid of impurities and winter flakes. NB no microbeads whatsoever.

CLEANSE After exfoliating, use a gentle but deep cleanser to wipe away the remnants of winter. Our Energising Face Wash should do the trick. Infused with green coffee extract, it stimulates and energises the skin, whilst balancing the rhinoceros complexion. It also contains oligopeptides derived from chickpeas (who knew?) which help to remove dead skin cells and combat the signs of fatigue.

SHAVE There’s nothing like a good clean shave boys.  Our gel delivers and extra-thick creamy foam with active cooling ingredients.

MOISTURISE ‘But I don’t need a moisturiser’ we hear you cry. Schoolboy error boys. Your newly exfoliated non-rhinoceros baby soft skin has just had a massive shock in being revealed to the world and needs nourishment and protection more than ever. Our All Weather Moisturiser Sensitive is a good option. Perfect for your new baby skin, it is paraben free and also contains Tazman Pepper, a little devil of an australian natural ingredient rich in an anti-inflammatory called polygodial which has the ability to immediately soothe and calm sensitive irritated and itchy skin.

This is your new mantra – Exfoliate, Cleanse, Shave, Moisturise – read carefully, inwardly digest, and DO it. All the products mentioned above are now available as a bundle for just £10 (RRP £19.25) from our online shop here

NB Spring is also a good time for a bit of a clean out of your other grooming stuff. Have a good old look at your razor blades, shaving stuff, toothbrush, and anything else that might be past its sell by date on your bathroom shelf. Throw it away and replace. Cathartic stuff boys.
