imes have changed, and splashing some water on your face before going out just doesn’t cut it any more. It’s time to rethink your regimen and create a grooming routine that’ll help you show off all your best assets.
DETERMINE YOUR SKIN T YPE Before you even begin looking at products, you first have to determine your skin type. Although this can change due to stress levels, the weather or your age, there are generally four basic skin types to consider: normal, oily, dry and sensitive, or combination.
OILY SKIN Greasy patches, acne and enlarged pores are all signs of an oily skin type. Products that won’t overdry the skin are perfect as they drain excess oil and unclog pores.
DRY OR SENSITIVE SKIN If you’re suffering from flaky, tight, dry skin, then you should opt for gentle products that contain natural ingredients.
NORMAL SKIN Your skin is not too oily or too dry – the perfect balance. Investing in good-quality skincare products will help to maintain a smooth, radiant complexion.
Those who have combination skin often have an oily T-zone (the area that crosses the forehead and down the nose and chin) and drier patches on the cheeks. Invest in products with fruit acids and retinol as these help to rebalance the skin.

ON THE DEFENCE
Sun exposure and stress can exacerbate the ageing process. To help prevent the premature onset of ageing and protect the skin, apply a daily SPF and invest in an anti-ageing moisturiser or serum.

EXFOLIATOR A great scrub prevents break-outs and clogged pores. When applied before shaving, an exfoliator creates the ideal canvas for a perfect shave.

SUPERCH ARGE YOUR SKIN
Exclusive to Edgars
If you start noticing fine lines, a dull complexion, or just feel that your skin needs an extra boost, then it’s time to consider a serum. This lightweight product contains potent moisturising ingredients that penetrate deep into your skin. You would, however, still need to use a moisturiser for adequate hydration.

Even though an exfoliator can help prep your beard and face for a shave, targeted shaving products will provide a comfortable and pain-free shaving experience. Applying a rich shaving cream not only adds a luxurious element, it also reduces friction, resulting in a seamless shave. When it comes to post-shaving products, a moisture-rich balm will help soothe your skin and reduce irritation. NIVEA MEN SENSITIVE POST SHAVE BALM R113.95 CLARINS MEN SMOOTH SHAVE FOAMING GEL R285
