Worried about under-eye dark circles, uneven pigmentation or other little imperfections? Then camouflage them with one of the new generation concealers for men. Here’s how;
Concealers are a cinch to use but as with shaving the better the preparation the better the results. If you apply concealer straight onto dry skin it’ll look patchy and flaky so make sure you moisturise beforehand with a product like Anthony Logistics Oil-Free Facial Lotion. Wait until completely absorbed then apply the concealer.
Concealers come as either solid sticks (like Menaji Camo Camouflage Stick) or liquids like Recipe for Men Concealer, but all achieve the same effects. Since you’re often covering skin that’s slightly darker than your natural colour (dark circles for example) it’s often a good idea to go for a colour slightly lighter than your normal skin.
The effects should be almost unnoticeable! The biggest no-no is using too much and applying it incorrectly. If you rub the concealer it’ll just come off so apply a little with your fingertip and pat instead. For dark shadows put the concealer on the inner corner of the eye, using just a little at first, and gently pat with the tip of your middle finger to blend it, moving the colour down and slightly under the eye. If you use this finger you’ll be a lot less heavy handed and will get better results. And that’s it: instant camo whenever, and wherever, you need it!

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.

Your grooming routine should consist of skincare, haircare, oral care and bodycare. Most people always do the first three, yet forget about the latter. The skin on the body is exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays, especially in summer, as well as a range of other aggressors. A body exfoliator is a vital step in any bodycare routine, and here’s why.
