The cleanser

Proverb Cleanse and Shave Nutrient Mud

 

Washing your face morning and night with this deep cleanser will ensure your skin is free of dirt and impurities - especially important if you live in a polluted city. Formulated with mineral-rich clay and vitamins, it will protect and boost your skin while calming and soothing any irritations.  


Proverb, Cleanse and Shave Nutrient Mud, £24

 


The exfoliator

Baxter of California Facial Scrub

 

If you shave you're already exfoliating regularly, but using this scrub will further remove dead skin cells which can cause a dull-looking complexion. Expect skin that's brighter, smoother and shine-free.


Baxter of California Facial Scrub, £22

 


The moisturiser

Origins Save The Males

 

Applying a moisturiser twice a day after cleansing will keep your skin healthy and hydrated. Save the Males is lightweight, oil-free and includes powerful antioxidants which work to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.


Origins Save The Males Moisturiser, £30

 


The overnight treatment

Guerlain Midnight Secret


A clever cocktail of ingredients, including lavender and tonka bean, will help smooth the skin, reduce any signs of puffiness and leave you looking like you've had (almost) eight hours kip. 


Guerlain, Midnight Secret, £24

 


The eye cream

Triumph and Disaster Eye Serum

 

Concerned about the signs of ageing? Don't neglect your eyes. As one of the most delicate areas of the face, it's usually the first place to start showing fine lines. Try this serum from Triumph & Disaster to brighten dark circles, minimise puffing and boost collagen production.


Triumph & Disaster Dichotomy Eye Serum, £60

 


The post-shave balm

Murdock Post Shave

 

If you shave, the skin underneath is likely to get irritated at times, but this will help to counteract it. Cooling and calming, it will seal your pores, reduce any redness and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.



Murdock Post Shave Balm, £34

 


The serum

Bullfrog serum

 

Serums contain a potent dose of ingredients targeted at specific skincare problems. If you use one, apply it after cleansing and before moisturiser. This one from Bullfrog contains Cannabis Sativa Seed extract to de-stress aggravated skin while Hyaluronic Acid boosts hydration.


Bullfrod Anti-Stress Hydrating Serum, £40

 


The lip balm

Aqua di Parma Lip Balm

 

Now you have your skin in check, don't neglect your lips. Start protecting them with a quick swipe of lip balm at the end of your skincare routine. This formula includes Shea butter and vitamin C to soften roughness and help them to heal.


Aqua di Parma, Mirto di Panarea Lip Balm, £14
