Guys, summer can be downright cruel to your skin if you don’t look after it properly. So whether you’re in the midst of a heatwave or you’re lucky enough to be jetting off to a warmer climate, it will pay to adapt your routine with some warm weather tips. Luckily, men’s grooming expert and curator of Liberty Fairs’ The Drugstore David Pirrotta is dishing out a handful of suggestions to make sure your skin and hair shines as bright as the sun, even in the scorching heat.
1. Grown Alchemist Gentle Face Cleanser
Cleanse Daily. Keep in mind that men’s skin is oilier by nature so you’ll have to take extra care of it. Your day should start and end by cleansing your face to get rid of all pollutants. Cleansing your skin daily helps it look fresh and makes it less prone to breakouts. Use a gel face wash that is free of dyes, artificial fragrances, soaps, and alcohol so that your skin doesn’t dry out. Try Grown Alchemist’s Gentle Gel Facial Cleanser: Geranium Leaf, Bergamot & Rose-Bud. It’s great for gently removing impurities from sensitive facial skin without stripping, allowing skin to breathe freely leaving skin thoroughly cleansed, calm and soothed.

2. Sachajuan Ocean Mist Shampoo & Conditioner
Lock In The Shine. Wash your hair at the beginning of your shower with a strengthening shampoo and then properly massage some conditioner in. This restores your hair’s natural moisture and shine. It’ll look ten times better afterwards, especially if you’ve been out in the sun and sea all day. Try SACHAJUAN’s Ocean Mist Shampoo. This special shampoo with ocean silk technology and natural vegetable proteins gives your hair structure, volume and strength from the inside and the outside leaving your hair shiny and strong. The Ocean Mist Conditioner is great for creating volume and structure. It moisturizes, protects and detangles to make hair look and feel fuller without weighing it down.

3. Grown Alchemist’s Hydra-Mist
Freshen Up On The Go. Even if you’ve developed the best grooming routine possible, you’re still going to have times when you’ll need to stay fresh while moving. Going straight from the office to the bar, running for a train in 90 degree heat, or just chilling by the pool— if you’re hoping to stay fresh in hot temperatures without a shower, you need a viable back up plan. Try Grown Alchemist’s Hydra-Mist: Desert Lime & Amino-Peptide. This advanced facial hydrating mist is formulated with potent peptides, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to visibly hydrate, soften, smooth, soothe and noticeably boost skin radiance reducing the visible signs of aging.

4. Matte Balancing Moisturizer
Mattefying Your Face. If you suffer from oily skin or are prone to the bit of shiny forehead, then hot weather is going to magnify the problem tenfold. Even those prone to dry skin experience excess oil during the summer. Not only is it a bad look, but it can lead to breakouts as well. Try Grown Alchemist’s Matte Balancing Moisturizer: Acai-Berry & Borago. This mattefying, non-greasy moisturizer leaves combination skin looking balanced, clear and beautifully radiant.

5. M.O.U.S.S.E II Eau De Parfum
Go Light On The Cologne. Nothing beats a shower when it comes to saying goodbye to body odor. Don’t try masking body odor with perfume or deodorant; you’ll fail miserably and smell even worse. A mildly fragrant cologne is all you need to smell appealing. Be sure to choose subtle scents instead of overpowering ones. Try Oliver & Co.’s M.O.U.S.S.E II. This daytime fragrance is refreshing and luminous with a twist of mint, cardamom and ambergris notes, giving M.O.U.S.S.E. II an aquatic, energetic and transparent character to take on the day.

6. Gentleman’s Brand Co. Face Scrub
Don’t Skip The Exfoliator. No matter how you get dirty, sweat and grime can clog your pores, causing breakouts without your even realizing the cause. Exfoliators are a great way to clean up and clear up. Exfoliation is the process of taking off dead skin cells. Do it, and your skin will generally look and feel cleaner, fresher, and smoother. It’s that simple. Try Gentleman’s Brand Co.’s Face Scrub. This gentle yet effective exfoliating scrub combines Pumice Stone, Organic Apple, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to remove dead skin cells and impurities— leaving skin feeling cleansed and smooth, clearing the way for a closer shave.
