As spring rolls around, you should be looking to make some upgrades to your grooming routine. Your skin and hair change constantly in response to environmental factors, and as temperatures and humidity levels begin to increase, you should make sure you have the right products to prepare yourself for these changes.
When it comes to skin care, you should be thinking about switching out heavier, more protective moisturisers and serums which are better suited to your skin in winter months for lighter alternatives. Plus, while SPF is important year-round, with daylight hours increasing it’s now more important than ever to make sure you’re well stocked. For the hair, as the climate changes it’s sensible to switch up your routine towards lighter conditioners, more frequent hair washing, and matte products.
It’s for these reasons that we’ve come up with this guide to Grooming upgrades you need to be making this spring.
Cannabis skin care is one of the most unusual and exciting trends in skin care at the moment. And it’s Phytocannabinoids, antioxidant rich derivatives of the hemp plant, that makes the Perricone MD CBX For Men Lightweight Moisturiser so effective.
