Grooming Essentials For The Summer

Grab one of these products and sail through the heat

In the summer time: If you change your shower gels faster than you change girlfriends you will always be spoilt for choice. The Fiama di wills Aqua Pulse shower gel (Rs 125 / 200 ml) is enriched with sea minerals and blue lotus and is one of the most refreshing ways to kick-start a .  There’s also the high energy Nivea Vitality (Rs 145 / 200 ml) with the zing of ocean minerals. The Shiseido Zen for Men Shower Gel (Price on request) is probably what you need after a long summer’s day. This invigorating shower gel with its refined scent thoroughly removes impurities from your skin without robbing its natural moisture and also doubles up as a mild shampoo.

Boys of Summer: Summer is not the best time to cheat on your diet and play couch potato. All that extra oil combines with the harsh rays of the sun and end up leaving your skin dull and uneven. A good face wash usually helps hide some of that grease. The L’Oreal Men Expert White Active brightening foam (Rs 429 / 100 ml) is the perfect antidote after a rough day for your skin. Enriched with ADS (Active Defence system) it reinforces the skin’s natural defence and brightens your skin. The Aqua Pulse face wash from Fiama de Wills (Rs 140 / 100 gm) provides the perfect de-stress solution for your skin with its strong exfoliating properties

Summer of ’69: The Somersets shaving range is created in a Manor house in England that has stood there for centuries (Way before the summer of 69) and all products are made from pure plant extracts without harsh chemicals. The pre-shave shave wash (Rs 670 / 100 gm) can help smoothen one of the bumpier rides of your day and prepare your skin for a luxurious shave. Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera combine to cleanse your skin of excess oils and grime without leaving it dry. If your skin needs extra attention then the pre-shave exfoliating scrub (Rs 670 / 100 gm) enriched with a blend of vitamins and jojoba beads leave your skin softer and nicer to touch.

Endless summer nights: Parties usually last longer on summer nights but you still need to show up at work the same time.  The Olay Men Multi Solution Eye Gel (Rs 699 / 15 ml) could just be what your dark circles need. This light textured gel features an energizing blend of ginseng essence, pro-vitamin B5 and cucumber extracts. The Shiseido Men moisturizing recovery cream (Rs 2150 / 50 ml) is the ideal fuel for your rough skin needs and hydrates your skin overnight so that you can make a better impression at the morning meeting. -Ashwin Rajagopalan You may also like: REVIEW: SAMSUNG GALAXY S4  The HOTTEST WOMEN OF CANNES 5 BEST S
