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.
