Summer begins June 20th, we got it. It doesn’t make sense for me to go into the whole introduction of what you might be, should be or will be doing this summer. Instead let’s get down to what you will need in order to look your best while doing whatever your heart desires this season.
It is hot and you are going to sweat so you will need a sunscreen that won’t wash away with perspiration. Jack Black’s Sun Guard SPF 45 sweat resistant formula goes on a bit thick (which is okay) so you only need a small amount. Use this SPF on a daily basis, and since a quarter size amount goes a long way, feel free to share with the hot girl on the beach.
A lot of gents I know are still rocking the full beard look. I get it, “once you go beard, you never go back,” but for those who aren’t lucky enough to pull off a full beard (or grow one for that matter) a clean shaved face during the summer is always a classic alternative. The Truman Shave Kit from Warby Parker of shaving, Harry’s offers sharpness, flexibility, and comfort for your face and bank account.
A water resistant sunscreen and a lip balm packed with SPF are two things you never want to leave home without. Your lips require just as much attention (and protection) as the rest of your face. Jack Black’s Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 is extremely soothing and relieves dry, chapped, and irritated lips. Packed with antioxidants and conditioners, this lip balm provides immediate relief to your lips.
The Smile Illuminator from Luster Premium White is an easy-to-use system that polishes, boosts, and revamps teeth to re-energize smiles with zero tooth sensitivity. The award-winning brand now offers a simple 3-step process to give you a lustering set off choppers. Since you probably will be hitting the town for a few events and rooftop parties, taking a white million dollar smile may just be the perfect companion.
Colognes in the summer can be tricky. Anything too woody reminds you of winter and anything to citrus never manages to last long on the skin. Lucky for you L’Occitane’s Cedrat has a proper balance of both. Featuring organic Cedrat extract all the way from the exotic shores of Corsica, France, this eau de toilette offers an invigorating lemon, refreshing woody experience in each bottle.
If you include these five summer grooming essentials into your “summer routine” you will be properly equipped to face the sun and smell your best this season.
