Over the years, the men’s grooming market has grown by leaps and bounds as increasing numbers of men invest in their own health and looks. It used to be unheard of for men to visit salons for facials and body waxing, but these are quite common now. The men’s hair, skin and beauty market continues to grow exponentially as men buy skin type-specific grooming products, fairness creams, beard grooming kits, even certain forms of makeup.
But just like women’s beauty products, men too must be careful about the products they buy. The products must suit their skin type and condition, and be of the best quality to get the desired results. We present the 4 must-have men’s products of the season – be sure to stock up on these to look great and feel good as the festivities approach:
#1 Coffee-scented or Ayurvedic shaving foam.
Yes, it’s cumbersome and annoying to shave often, but you must still do it – so why not make the experience a pleasant one? Ditch your regular shaving foam or gel in favour of a coffee-infused one. It is a well-known fact that the scent of coffee can awaken you when you struggle to focus early in the morning. But did you know that coffee also has anti-oxidant properties? Before you have your regular cup of morning coffee, give yourself a caffeine fix with an exquisite coffee shaving foam, that lets your razor glide smoothly on the skin for a close shave. Or if you want your skin feeling supple and hydrated post-shave, try an Ayurvedic shaving foam. This one gently moisturises the skin to prevent post-shave dryness. You can find both variants on leading e-commerce apps in India. These sites offer free product trials so be sure to test the product first.
#2 Intimate wash.
You’ve probably heard of women’s intimate washes, but did you know that men’s intimate wash gels and soaps exist, too? These products are designed to keep the intimate area of the body clean and dry, free of infection-causing microbes, odour-causing bacteria, and sweat. They can be used every day during the shower to keep the skin clean and refreshed. Regular use prevents itching, odour and irritation in the area while maintaining the skin’s pH balance. Besides, these washes are available in different fragrances like chocolate, berries and aloe vera, so you can pick your favourite fragrance from a product trial app.
#3 Facial skin kit.
Who says men’s skin doesn’t deserve attention? Ditch the notion that taking care of facial skin is a woman’s domain – if you have skin, it must be taken care of. Your face reflects your inner health, age and skin fitness, so you must keep your skin supple, healthy and radiant always. Use a facial skin care kit comprising natural ingredients to cleanse, brighten and exfoliate the face. Start with the cleanser to remove any superficial dirt, dried oil and grime. The cleansed skin responds well to the brightening face pack that hydrates the skin and nourishes it from deep within. Next, use a facial scrub to slough off dead skin cells and reveal fresh skin with every use. Regular use of this facial skin care kit will improve your skin tone, and banish any problems like acne, blackheads, excessive oiliness and dullness. Do test out these products from a product trial app first, to find a brand that suits your skin type.
#4 Hair growth pack.
Your hair is your crowning glory, and it distresses you when you notice excessive hair fall or breakage. Other problems plaguing most men’s hair are dandruff, oily scalp, hair thinning, male pattern baldness, alopecia, etc. If you want to retain the strength and dexterity of your hair for long, you must take the time to care for it today. Arm yourself with a good hair growth pack that nourishes, hydrates and cleanses the scalp to improve hair health. It is a powder to be mixed into a paste and applied evenly on the scalp; it hydrates and nourishes while decreasing the effect of DHTs (a male hormone that affects hair and skin quality) gradually. Use the hair growth pack regularly to have stronger, shinier, fitter hair that bounces with health.
