The mark of a real man is that he shows up looking sharp and professional everywhere, whether it’s work, a date or while you’re sweating it out with a workout. To do all that, men need their shaving essentials to skincare basics in place at all times. As skin ages, it is not going to get any better by using the same drugstore products you did when you were younger. Hair and skin needs change from time to time and so must your daily routine. Here is a list of grooming essentials men need to use this summer before stepping out.
No points for guessing, the list of essentials start with a sunscreen. Select a sunblock lotion that has SPF ranging from anywhere between 30-60 depending on the type of sun exposure you’re anticipating. We know all men do not care so much about sunscreen but if this post manages to convince you to start applying it, then we also suggest that you reapply it every couple of hours spent under the sun to avoid sunburn and damage.
Since hair is mostly the game changer when it comes to how a man looks, it’s important to understand that every shampoo is not the same. YES! All that time you’ve spent whining to your girlfriend about how much money she spends on various products is now, just about now, going to make you feel bad. There are two kinds of shampoos, a normal shampoo for regular usage and a dry shampoo for days when you do not have time to wash your hair. Dry shampoo helps to get rid of greasy and oily scalp in just 2 minutes without the hassle of running into a shower, recommended only in case of dire urgencies. Men always look better when they are absolutely clean and smelling of that musky shower gel *drool*.

Now, we understand that trimmers are one necessity every man understands and cares about but the point here is to lay stress on the fact that you must have one. Especially during summer, if you don’t take good care of facial hair and trim it well, all the sweat will clog and it’ll only lead to skin eruptions, breakouts and skin infections.

#4 Face and body scrub
Scrubbing helps to exfoliate the skin and helps rejuvenate dead skin cells. Chances of breakouts and acne are much higher in summer as the skin pores get clogged with moisture and dust. Hence using a scrub, twice a week, can do wonders for your skin and make it look healthier.

There is nothing more fascinating than a man who smells good so just pick a cool and refreshing fragrance before you step out.

#6 Face wash
Face wash needs are different for all skin types. Use a face wash that suits your skin type for instance, an oil absorbing face wash if you have oily skin. Avoid using something that is too harsh and dry as it might make your skin rough. We also recommend using a moisturizer to keep your skin soft and hydrated after using a face wash.
