Get Your Routine Ready for Spring

Spring is here! Time to upgrade your skincare and grooming routine and build lasting habits. Check out our spring guide for all the essentials to put your best face forward this season!

It’s time to shake off the winter blues and start investing in your skincare and grooming routine. If you're a guy who's just beginning to explore skincare, the shift in seasons is the perfect opportunity to build new and sustainable habits.

In this comprehensive guide, we talk about all the skincare essentials you need for a well-rounded self-care routine. We'll make sure you have everything you need to put your best face forward as we enter the brighter days.

Why Men Should Take Skincare Seriously

Men's grooming and skincare has seen a rapid evolution in recent years, debunking stereotypes and highlighting the importance of self-care. Also, skin is our largest organ and naturally, this means that it deserves all the attention.

A consistent and well-informed skincare routine helps maintain healthy skin and slow down the signs of ageing. With male skin often being oilier, thicker, and prone to specific issues like ingrown hair and acne, personalised care is essential. 

Now, more than ever, there are countless products designed specifically with men in mind that make achieving great skin easy and affordable.

Spring Skincare Staples You Can't Skip

Face Wash

Our Energising Face Wash is the perfect kick-start for your morning routine. Formulated to remove the grit of the day and reinvigorate your skin, it's an essential step. This cleanser includes nourishing ingredients like maize, which helps smoothen and brighten tired-looking skin. Whether you’re heading to the office or the gym, a good face wash ensures you start every morning feeling fresh and ready to take on the day.

Protective Moisturiser

The only way to properly shield your skin from UV rays is with a protective moisturiser. For daily use, we recommend our moisturiser with added SPF 15. If your skin is exposed to sunlight more often, then you might want to opt for SPF 30 instead. 

Moisturisers with SPF don’t only ward off the sun’s harmful effects but also hydrate the skin. The addition of SPF is non-negotiable, as it's vital for preventing long-term skin damage, like premature ageing and skin cancer.

Your Hair, Your Style

The cap that’s been rarely removed in these colder months is about to make more infrequent appearances, which means your hair game needs to be on point. Spring is the perfect season to experiment with lighter hair styles and products. Here are three essentials to have on hand:


Ideal for the slick and smooth look, pomade offers a medium to high hold with a shiny finish. Perfect for events that require a bit more polish, it is a classic favourite that can give a professional touch to your style without making your hair stiff or sticky.


Looking for a more natural finish with a strong hold? Clay is the go-to product. It provides the structure you need without the sheen, making it great for those who prefer a more understated look.

Hair Styling Cream

Hair styling cream offers a light hold with a non-greasy finish, making it an ideal choice for those who want to tame their hair without the commitment of a strong-hold product. It’s perfect for casual looks and everyday use, giving you that lived-in, effortless style.

Spring Skincare Do's and Don'ts

Do - Exfoliate regularly

Exfoliation is especially important in the spring as it helps rid your skin of dead cells accumulated from the dry winter weather and heating systems. This prevents your face from looking dull and can also help reduce breakouts.

Don't - Forget the sunscreen

Overexposure to the sun can result in damage that shows up years later in the form of wrinkles, sun spots, and worse, skin cancer. Remember that UV rays pass through clouds and windows, so wherever there's natural light, make sure to have that SPF by your side.

Do - Hydrate inside and out

Drinking water and using a quality moisturiser helps keep your skin look plump and healthy. Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining your overall health as well.

Don't - Use the same routine year-round

Just like you change up your clothes based on the season, you should also switch up your skincare routine. Transitioning to a lighter, gentler routine in the warmer months can help your skin avoid seasonal issues.

Self-Care Means Long-Term Health Benefits

By incorporating the above products and regimens, you’re not only tackling immediate skincare concerns but also investing in your long-term well-being.
