5 products you need for the perfect morning grooming routine

Getting ready in the morning is a hard ask. Half asleep, we regularly stumble into the bathroom, desperately attempting to make ourselves look human. Sometimes it can be difficult knowing where to start, but with a regular grooming routine things get a little easier. Not only will getting ready become more straightforward, but your skin will thank you for it too. The products you use are just as important though, so here are 5 of the best.

 

HAIR AND BODY WASH
grooming - TGJ.01

With a hair and body wash you’ll save money and time, killing two birds with one stone. Make sure it’s quality stuff though, like this luxurious sandalwood version by Geo. F. Trumper.

Geo. F. Trumper Sandalwood Hair and Body Wash 500ml, £25.99 from Mankind 

 

FACE WASH
grooming - TGJ.03

A trusty face wash is a must-have for every man. Work in to your skin using circular motions and pay particular attention to your forehead and nose, as this is where most oil builds up.

Aesop Amazing Face Cleanser 200ml, £33 from Mankind

 

MOISTURISER
grooming - TGJ.02

Washing your face can dry it out, so counteract that with a quality moisturiser like this from Lab Series. Gentle and soothing on the skin, it’s fragrance free and will keep you looking your best every day.

Lab Series Oil Control Daily Hydrator 50ml, £29 from Mankind

 

HAIR STYLING PRODUCT
grooming - TGJ.04

After towel drying your hair, modestly apply some product and style it as desired. We would recommend going for a classic look, side parting included.

American Crew Defining Paste 85g, £9.50 from Amazon

 

FRAGRANCE

grooming - TGJ.05

Every man should have a signature scent. Just before you walk out the door, apply a couple of splashes to either side of the neck to keep it subtle.

TOM FORD Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum 100ml, £215 from John Lewis
