If you’re anything like us, New Years always rolls around replete with good intentions that fizzle out before we’ve figured out where to begin. But if there’s one thing we know how to get right, it’s good grooming habits. At Mankind, we’re firm believers that impeccable grooming is not a difficult thing to master, and with a few tweaks to your existing routine, virtually anybody can scrub up extraordinarily well. In this blog, we’re going to set the grooming agenda for 2019. With these 5 changes to your grooming routine, you can guarantee to be looking and feeling your best year round.
1. Take your skincare seriously
Perhaps the most common story that plays out when it comes to failed attempts to take care of your skin goes as follows. A wrinkle is spotted, and panic sets in. Cleansers, moisturisers, anti-ageing creams and face masks are purchased and deployed, used with an almost frenzied intensity for a week. You begin to feel great, and your skin looks incredible. This fortnight of hard work and dedication seems to really be paying off. Your body is a temple. Everybody, meet the new you. You can hardly believe how good you feel, and really can’t remember why you were worried in the first place. Your routine slips, and before you know it, you’re back to square zero.
If this sounds at all familiar, you’re definitely not alone. You might be tempted to call this a case of lack of willpower, but we pin the responsibility squarely on misdirected energy. Skincare is a marathon, not a sprint. The little and often approach is much more fruitful in the long term than going hell-for-leather once every six months.
