This May we’ve had some spectacular weather, with plenty more promised to be on the way. If you haven’t already updated your grooming collection so that you’re thoroughly prepared for summer, you’ll probably be regretting it by now. As always, however, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together a selection of products that we think you should pick up this payday that we guarantee will have you more than equipped for the change of season and the coming summer months. Check out our list of pay day buys.
In case you’ve missed the memo, protecting yourself from the sun is not only the most straightforward way to prevent signs of ageing, but it’s the best way to reduce the risk of developing skin cancer. Using a broad spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen such as the Extreme Sun Lotion from Ultrasun is a perfect way to do this in sunny weather.
The Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleanser uses a mineral rich Moor Mud, Activated Charcoal, and Hijiki Seaweed to cleanse deep into the skin, removing the environmental pollutants your skin picks up throughout the day. Its Tea Tree Oil and Salicylic acid treat blemishes too. A light, refreshing cleanser that penetrates deeply into the skin, it’s a perfect daily face wash for summer use.
The Philip Kingsley Jet Set is a travel shampoo and conditioner kit which is ideal for building volume, taming flyaway hair, and reducing static, achieving the high standards you’re used to at home while you’re on the road.
Hanz De Fuko Claymation has been a firm favourite at Mankind for a number of years now. Offering outstanding hold and a matte finish, you can guarantee to achieve the style you want without shine. This makes it a perfect styling product heading into summer, as its matte effect counteracts the shine that can come about with humidity and heat.
Sea Salt Spray is a guaranteed way to transform your look, bringing out the natural colour of your hair, while improving the grit, texture, and pliability, allowing you to create the style you need. This 40 Proof Sea Salt Spray from Blind Barber makes use of Hops to strengthen your hair, too, making it an ideal summer pick up.
The Anthony Blue Sea Kelp Body Scrub uses Sea Kelp Extract and Aloe Vera to nourish and soothe damaged skin, while exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. It can be used as frequently as needed, but helps to removed peeling skin after sun damage.
This daily body wash from Ren wakes up and invigorates tired, worn out skin. Also making use of Sea Kelp, its magnesium content helps to break down oils and fats, making it an ideal oily skin solution.
Last on our list of pay day buys is the Fake Bake Luxurious Golden Bronze Original Self-Tan Lotion. Nearly everybody wants to obtain a healthy tan, but at what expense? Sun damage of the skin is a sure fire way to cause signs of ageing, and as we’ve already discussed, increases your risk of developing skin cancer. A fake tan product is a safe, healthy, and effective way to look tanned. Definitely one to consider as we head into summer.
