As any sartorially-inclined gentleman knows, grooming is just as – if not more – important as the clothes we wear. Not only is a proper grooming regimen another weapon in your arsenal of attractiveness, but it’s also essential to good health. Thankfully we can call on the expertise of Lab Series, who have collaborated with Craig the Barber, one of Hollywood’s go-to groomers, and an expert in both classic barbering and modern looks. We’ve included 5 of Craig’s tips here, to check out the complete set of recommendations head over to FINERCUT.
1: Sun Block
Don’t be fooled by the kids down the shore: over-tanning is the surest way to look old before your time. But even if you avoid the beds, you should still limit your everyday exposure by wearing a light sunscreen or moisturizer with a solid SPF.
2: Hair Removal
The phrase “manscaping” is totally dated, but it is no less true that men, particularly, as they age, have body and facial hair worth removing. We’re talking nose, ears and eyebrows primarily, but if there’s a weird stray hair peeking up through your collar, go ahead and snip that too.
3: Eye Cream
The eyes are windows to the soul, and the under-eye is the window to how much sleep you’re getting. If it’s not enough (and who over the age of 5 is getting enough sleep?), then you should definitely use a quality eye cream to reduce puffiness and wrinkles.
4: Shaving Sollutions
Whether you shave everyday or every once in a while, in-grown hairs and razor burn are familiar enemies. Combat them by exfoliating pre-shave (helps fight in-grown hairs), and then using a cold washcloth as a compress after shaving (to cut down on the burn).
5: Shine Prevention
Everyone’s skin produces oil, but if you’re worried about giving off a blinding glare, then use an oil-controlling moisturizer for a fresh matte finish.
