Daniel Marin is a London based blogger, that has recently featured in our latest Day In The Life campaign. We wanted to work with Daniel because of his style, and passion for skincare. Our videos with him will give you a good understand into what it takes to have an active lifestyle.
Daniel is an account manager originally from Brazil, now living in London. If you’re looking for someone who is knowledgeable in grooming, lifestyle, fashion and travel, Daniel is your man. Daniel’s content is well written, and his imagery is enviable.
We’re really happy to have worked with Daniel for our latest campaign, and if you haven’t watched the video already, we think you should. With the video, we’ve aimed to give insight into how easy it is to incorporate a healthy lifestyle into your daily routine.
Hello, I’m Daniel. I’m a full-time Account Manager working in one of the most dynamic media agencies in London. I’m also a part-time Lifestyle, Fashion and Travel blogger. My family is originally from Italy but I was born and raised in Brazil. I’ve been living in the UK for more than a decade now.
I think it’s a combination of factors. Guys take fitness, well-being and their overall appearance far more seriously than in the past. It started with the metrosexual trend about two decades ago. I think social media, marketing and advertising also creates social pressure on guys to look good – and this can be positive or negative. The industry has also grown in response to a discerning male market, with many new products, services and technologies available for grooming.
I follow several male bloggers, which keeps me up to date on the latest trends in male fashion and grooming. Events like London Fashion Week also showcase latest trends in style and grooming. Celebrities in the music, film, sport and pop culture industries are trend-setters too, so I keep my eye on them. Can you guess who?
Contrary to what most guys might think, a daily grooming routine doesn’t take much of an effort. I’ve recommended some of my favourite products below. Get into a morning routine and stick to it. The golden rule is to never leave the house in the morning without applying moisturiser. And a good haircut – from simply trimming your beard or asking your stylist to fade and clean up around the ears (or a radical new cut or colour) – can make you look and feel like a million dollars.
From the blogs I’ve read, one of the trends that stands out is the increasing popularity among men of face masks. There are now a range of face masks on the market at various price points. They’re a great way of giving your skin an instant hydro boost.
No, as I said earlier, you can have a fairly simple and effective grooming routine. Nowadays there are so many options within various price ranges that you don’t need to break the bank to look good.
My new top 3 essentials are from Elemis range.
Elemis TFM Deep Cleanse Facial Wash, to rejuvenate and awaken skin, whilst removing excess oil, dirt and impurities.
Elemis TFM Daily Moisture Boost, the lightweight moisturiser designed to immediately recharge and hydrate without overloading the skin whilst defending it from harsh external pollutants.
Elemis TFM Time Defence Eye Reviver, it reduces those wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes that give the appearance of premature ageing
Be sure to do sufficient research to determine which brands, products and services suit your skin type and lifestyle.
Be confident in your own skin. The key for happiness is accepting yourself the way that you are. The moment you understand that, confidence will radiate from within.
We have no doubt that you’ll enjoy Daniel’s content, and we’d recommend you check out his blog and follow him on Instagram.
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.
