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.
Within the male grooming industry, there are hundreds of terms floating around, yet we are often unsure of exactly what they mean. One of these terms in particular is cruelty free. Even though it seems pretty simple, there’s a little more to it than first comes to mind. Here at Mankind, we’ve put together a short guide to cruelty free products to make it a little easier to understand.

When you're living an active lifestyle, we think it's essential that you have a shower routine that supports that. Sweat and dirt can clog your pores, not just on your face, but on your body also. Not to mention it can leave your hair looking greasy and difficult to style. Check out our latest video to discover what products we recommend.
