How To Get A Softer & Smoother Face – Men’s Grooming

By Lois Nash, Therapist at Rush Beauty Croydon

As you may or may not know June is Male Month here at RUSH Hair and Beauty. With events like the World Cup, Wimbledon, and Father’s Day, now is the ideal time to create a new skin care routine, following in the footsteps of well-groomed celebs like David Beckham, Zac Efron or George Clooney.

Here are some simple steps and tips to follow to get your skin looking and feeling softer and smoother:

Firstly cleansing your skin is essential, and I don’t mean with soap or shower gel! Using a facial wash twice a day will help to remove excess dirt and oil, leaving skin refreshed and clean but not stripped. This is an easy step to add to your normal routine as you can do it while in the shower. Just add a 10p sized amount to the palm of your hand and apply to damp skin, massage in in circular motions over the face being gentle around the eyes. Rinse with water and pat dry.

If your skin is feeling rough and looking dull or you’re prone to ingrown hairs as a result of shaving, a facial scrub would be ideal. Unlike a facial wash a scrub usually contains small grains which slough away dead skin cells and impurities leaving skin brighter and softer. A scrub will help to lift and free facial hair preventing ingrown hairs and blemishes. I would recommend using a scrub twice a week, in the same way you would your facial wash. Be a little more gentle when working the product in.

Using products such as a moisturiser and shave oil will also help you achieve softer smoother skin. You should always be using a moisturiser after cleansing and shaving. Elemis Daily Moisture Boost (£29.00 50ml) (available at Rush Beauty Croydon, Sutton and Windsor’

) is perfect as it has a light consistency and doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily or sticky yet still hydrates.

*If you are thinking of treating yourself or buying a Father’s Day gift try a Guinot Tres Homme Hydradermie Facial,  it’s is a great way to deep cleanse and kick start a new routine. Your therapist will be more than happy to do a thorough consultation and answer any skin care questions. Add on an Elemis Deep Tissue Back Neck and Shoulder Massage for ultimate relaxation.
