A few years ago, you’d have to visit a salon and shell out a small fortune to get rid of your excess fur but thanks to the popularity of body hair removal, it’s never been easier or more convenient. What’s more, you can do it in the privacy of your own home and Mankind has an array of products to help you de-fuzz you just need to choose the ones for you.
If you just want to trim back body hair so it looks neat and tidy a cordless grooming tool, like the Wahl Lithium Ion Grooming Station, is the ideal solution.
If you opt for the Wahl Lithium Ion Grooming Station, all you need to do is trim away. It comes with three different length guards so always start with the longest and go shorter if you want (you can always take more off but can’t stick it back on!). Just make sure that your body hair is even and consistent (i.e don’t trim your chest hair then leave the stuff on your stomach longer or it’ll look weird).
Whether you’re sugaring, using a hair removal cream or shaving it’s a good idea to follow up with a product like Elemis SOS Survival Cream to soothe and protect skin. With its naturally antiseptic properties, it’s the perfect after treatment for freshly de-fuzzed skin. Or, if you’ve been using a traditional razor, apply an aftershave balm in the way you’d apply some to your face (like Jack Black’s Post Shave Cooling Gel as it minimises any chance of irritation).

When I started improving my grooming routine, I was overwhelmed by the plethora of products to choose from. I quickly learnt that grooming doesn’t have to be complicated. My aim is to give you an understandable breakdown of skincare, haircare and general grooming.
We often take time to carefully plan out a personalised skincare regime, yet haircare is often not thought about in the same way. We know how important it is to use shampoos, conditioners and other haircare products which suit your individual hair, rather than just using whatever happens to be on the bathroom shelf. That’s why this time round, our Editors Pick is the innovate Kérastase range.

A day at the beach can do wonders for your well-being. Taking the time to relax, enjoy the sun, boost your vitamin D intake and have a break from daily life can dramatically improve your mental health. However, the beach can wreak havoc on both your hair and skin, leaving it dry, flaky and generally unhealthy. This makes it really important to spend some time treating your skin to a well-deserved deep cleanse post-beach visit.

As the weather becomes increasingly warmer, the less appealing it becomes to use a heavy, high hold hair styling clay or wax. Sea salt sprays are great for creating a textured look from your natural hair, leaving you with a beachy matte hairstyle. They also won’t leave you with thick product build up on the hair, helping to keep hair in great condition throughout the summer.
