Waking up during Winter is hard enough. Waking up and starting your morning grooming routine can be even harder. Despite the cold mornings January is the perfect time to look at our current routines and revamp them in preparation for the year ahead.
Starting off the new year with a good routine in place will not only set you up for the rest of 2017 but it is also vital to setting yourself up for a good day. A grooming routine doesn’t have to take long, every now and then it’s ideal to assess what works, what doesn’t, what new products are available and what techniques can be used to cut down on time.
In collaboration with the new Panasonic Electric Hair Clippers* I have put this quick guide together to show how you can get maximum results for minimum effort, which means more time in bed!
Investing in a good electronic toothbrush will not only save time brushing your teeth, but it also does all the hard work for you. Try investing in a good quality tooth paste and mouthwash to give your mouth that deep clean feeling.
When it comes to skincare there are more and more products which are now tailored to men’s’ requirements. With eye creams, targeted treatments and beard oils saturating the market, it’s hard to know what you should include into your routine. With hundreds of products and brands for men to choose from it can all get a bit confusing! Knowing what works for you will be down to trial and error but there are two key elements to a morning skincare routine – cleanse and moisturise. Try investing in a pack of good quality face wipes, these will not only save a couple of minutes but they are so much easier to use then having to physically wash your face. Follow with moisturiser to retain and replenish any moisture lost through the night.
Try showering the night before. During the winter we sweat considerably less so switching from morning to night can trim 20 minutes off your routine. Not only that, showering at night also prepares you for a good night sleep, relaxing the mind and body, meaning you feel more refreshed in the morning.
When it comes to male grooming, the new multipurpose Panasonic Electric Hair Clippers has all your needs covered and can be used for everything from taming your sideburns to shaping your beard.
Featuring new ultra close blades which are 40% shorter than the conventional model, you can achieve a much closer and precise cut, saving time spent going over the same areas again and again.
The ergonomic design and soft grip rubber pads allows the trimmer to fit comfortably in your hand allowing you to have complete control for a clear cut. This allows you to trim intricate areas such as the edges of beards and mustaches into shape on a daily basis.
The trimmer also comes complete with two comb attachments (3mm, 6mm) which can be used for all your beard, body and hair trimming needs. So if you’re going for that designer stubble look all you need to do is select the appropriate guide comb and go lightly over your facial hair with the trimmer, cutting everything back to a uniform length.
Once you’ve finished your routine, simply stand the trimmer back in it’s charging station, ready for the following morning.
Offering 40 minutes of cordless power you really can groom until your heart’s content! For further information and full specifications on the Panasonic ER-GP21 Professional Hair Clippers head over to the webpage here.
