More often than not, mornings usually end up being a mad rush to get out the door in time, so try and cut back your grooming to the bare essentials to ease the stress and give yourself more time to enjoy your morning coffee.
Start the day with a cold shower to wake you up, it’s good for your skin and you can guarantee you won’t want to spend too long in there. Body moisturiser is best absorbed straight out of the shower when skin is still damp, so now is the time to get moisturising with Jack Black's Cool Moisture Body Lotion.
After cleansing, apply an SPF Moisturiser. In most parts of Australia, the UV index rises above 3 all year round, so it's important to protect your skin even when there's no sun in sight. Clinique for Men SPF21 Moisturiser will provide excellent protection for normal and incidental UV exposure. If you work outside, then you might want to apply a high factor sunscreen over your normal moisturiser.
If the late nights have caught up with you, apply a concealer to hide dark circles, bumps and blemishes as the final step in your routine. Menaji's Camo Stick is available in 6 shades to blend effortlessly with your skin tone.
When your social calendar has you heading straight from the office to the restaurant, King Brown's Original Pomade will keep your hair in place all day without the need to restyle or reapply.
Make the most of free time in the evenings so you can snooze your alarm a few extra times in the morning. Shaving at night will save you the most time, and aim to get small tasks out the way, such as looking after your nails and skin, that can even be done while you relax on the couch.
Repair the ravages of a hard day's work by taking five minutes to tidy up unruly nails and rough cuticles. Czech & Speake's Manicure Kit will turn the job into a pleasure rather than a chore, then finish with a non-greasy hand cream, such as Jack Black Hand Healer, for silky smooth mitts.
Getting ready for date night? Choose an irresistible warm leather or woody scent, like Acqua di Parma's Colonia Oud, which will have your date snuggling up to you all night.
Once or twice a week, after cleansing, apply a face mask to deep clean into pores. Triumph & Disaster Rock & Roll Face Scrub doubles as a mask when left on for 5-10 minutes while you sit back and relax.
Skin works hardest overnight to help repair itself, so before you hit the hay give your skin some extra fuel to assist with the process. A night cream or serum containing AHA or BHA acids will hydrate and gently exfoliate dead skin cells, or if ageing is your main concern then choose a targeted anti-ageing serum.
