Whether your style is more bucket hat or panama, the time to reach for your summer hat feels tantalisingly close – but there’s more to prepping your face for summer than mere protection from the burning midday sun above. Take the new season as an excuse the wipe the slate clean with your grooming routine, incorporating the kind of products that give you both a fresh start and ones that will have you covered for the warmer weather.
First-up for your face, shave cream to tidy up any stray hairs. Second, a face mask for a brighter, smoother complexion – alternating between the hotter temperatures outside and air conditioning inside can lead to dry skin. Thirdly, an oil controlling moisturiser to soak up any excess shine that might result from a day in the sun.
If you’re embracing louche, slightly longer hair for the summer months, invest in a sea salt spray for that tousled, beachy vibe. And, finally, switch up your scent. After the rich, warm scents of the winter, go for something fresher and juicer for the summer. A sparkling citrus like Floris’ Bergamotto di Positano will instantly transport you to the Italian Riviera – even if the closest you’ll actually get to there geographically is slipping on your sun hat and having a spritz outside your local on a Saturday afternoon. Perfetto!
