Get your guy set for summer
A guy’s ego is a fragile thing. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that more often than not a man’s ego is the very thing that makes him insistent that he always be right, pushes him to perform better in the sporting arena – and is reduced to little or nothing if he doesn’t look and feel his best.
While we’re not supporting larger-than-life egos around here, it’s important that your guy feels confident enough in his own skin at all times – and with many men not up to scratch in the grooming stakes, winter is a time when a lot of fellas fall flat.
So ladies, we need you to help your man get set for summer so you can watch the winter blues fade, and his confidence soar.
SUMMER-READY TIP #1: Ditch the Movember growth
So though Movember is a great cause, once December first hits it should be bye bye beardy, and hello chinny chin chin! An overgrown beard can be difficult to pull off for most guys (unless he’s going for the ‘homeless chic’ look), and it can also be an itchy pain in the you-know-where when the hot weather hits. Hand him the supplies he needs to get the job done.
We recommend Gentlemen’s Tonic Babassu & Bergamot Classic Shave Cream as it includes essential oils for a more comfortable shave and is perfect for sensitive skin - and Schick Quattro Titanium Freestyle, which features four blades for an even closer shave and a battery-powered trimmer for facial hair styling on the other end!
SUMMER-READY TIP #2: Get his skin in tip-top shape
Ick, the winter months aren’t kind to our boys, are they? Not only have their complexions become dull – but my guess is it’s been ages since they’ve had the rejuvenating cleanse they so need. Davinci Clogged Pore Strips are the perfect way to instantly remove the clogged-up dirt and grime from deep down in your guy’s pores.
Finish with a generous slather of a nourishing moisturiser that will help to revive his skin and his whole body (you know how guys just love a two-in-one product!). We love Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Men Body & Face Lotion for its masculine scent and 100 per cent natural cocoa butter that will be kind to his (probably dry-ish) skin.
SUMMER-READY TIP #3: Ensure his hair is working for him
If your guy would rather pull teeth than take the time to style his hair in the morning, make it easy for him – because ladies, the shaggy ‘do just isn’t hot right now. Moosehead Shaping Dough is a no-fuss, easy-to-use product that can create shape or a scrunched effect, as well as provide lift to his limp hair. It also provides a matte finish – which will well and truly suit his style this summer.
Take note, if he does choose to style his hair daily, arm him with a cleansing shampoo that will get rid of build-up every time he washes his hair, which - let’s be frank – may not be all that often. At least you can rest easy in the knowledge that TIGI BED HEAD for Men Clean Up Daily Shampoo will provide a good, thorough cleansing and an invigorating menthol scalp treatment to boot!
SUMMER-READY TIP #4: Take him from sweaty to sexy
FACT: even if he looks less-than-luscious, a guy who smells amazing will always get a girl’s attention.
It’s for this reason you need to do yourself a favour and ensure he’s using products that will make him feel sexy and confident, and keep any whiffy odours at bay. If he sweats more than he should, or he finds his deodorant just doesn’t go the distance, put him onto a clinical deodorant that works harder. We love Rexona Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant deodorant for Him for its constant protection against perspiration and odour.
Don’t stop there. If you really want him to get set for romantic summer evenings with you, get him on the right path by arming him with a totally masculine, seriously sexy scent that will see his confidence levels soaring. Ermenegildo Zegna Z Zegna is a woody, watery, aromatic masculine scent that features notes of white pepper, bergamot, cashmere, wood and patchouli. It’s the perfect way to get him smelling sexy and totally set for summer.
