Declutter the garage, disinfect the countertops, and dust off the boombox in the basement (or maybe just throw that one out), it’s all in the name of spring, the season of clean. So why not freshen up your skincare and grooming routine while you’re at it? It’s time to focus on you, the basement can wait.
Here are 5 easy ways to spring clean your grooming routine:
1. One Word: Exfoliate.
As humidity levels rise, so does sweat and oil production. A gentle daily exfoliator like the Face Wash keeps your pores clear and breakouts out of the picture.
2. Upgrade Your Deo.
Now’s the perfect time to switch to a fresh and clean aluminum-free Deo that will actually crush B.O come summer. Some call it a Deo Detox, but that makes it sound like you’re sacrificing something. And with Huron Deo, you get everything: sweat stomping, amazing smelling, all-day protection.
3. Wash Your Pillowcase...Now.
Your face sheds 30,000-40,000 skin cells per hour (!). Now, multiply that by 8 hours of sleep per night, and your pillowcase is littered with dead skin cells. You could be washing your face every night before bed, but your pillowcase might be canceling out that effort. Experts suggest that you should wash your pillowcases at least once per week, especially if you have acne-prone skin. So go ahead, throw in a load.
4. Talking Body.
Your body is doing a lot for you, make sure to give back to it. After you take your mental health walk or get back from the gym, jump in the shower and use a conditioning Body Wash. Huron Body Wash tackles three distinct problems many guys encounter: body acne (‘bacne’), odor, and dry skin. Formulated with Witch Hazel, a known astringent, which helps to cleanse skin, tighten pores, and dry out oil, it fights acne and reduces skin inflammation. To keep odor at bay, our two fragrances, Eucalyptus + Citrus and Sandalwood + Black Pepper, keep you smelling better than your best all day. And, the combination of Coconut Oil and Vitamin E help prevent moisture loss, which is key is the warmer months.
5. The Old Once Over.
What products have you been using for years, too many years maybe? What are you consistently ‘borrowing’ from your partner? What products have you been meaning to try, but haven’t gotten around to? Shake things up a bit and establish a new self-care routine this spring. We know warmer weather means more sweat and, potentially, more B.O., so a new deodorant and an odor-fighting body wash are great places to start. If you’re still in the shave-regularly camp, look to switch your razor blades every 5-10 shaves, depending on the length and thickness of your facial hair. Post-shave, look for a lightweight, yet ultra-hydrating face moisturizer. Put the heavy creams back in the cabinet until October.
Wash your face, your pillowcases, your body, upgrade your deo, and elevate your whole routine… sounds like you're ready for spring. And good timing too, summer’s just around the corner.
