Here are 5 male grooming summer essentials to help get you through the hotter months of the year, feeling and looking better than ever!

The most drastic change in your grooming routine usually occurs in the summer season. With temperatures rocketing, summer is the time of year when you really should be taking extra pride in the grooming products you use. After all, it's not just about looking good - it's also more importantly about keeping your skin, hair and body as healthy as possible.  So, here are five grooming essentials to consider this summer... 

1. SPF 20 Face Lotion

Be sure to keep your face hydrated and fully protected during summer. Our faces are constantly exposed to the sun, therefore using a good SPF 20 throughout the day will keep your facial skin protected from the harmful UV rays, thus preventing unwanted premature ageing skin. 

2. SPF 30 Hair Cream

Not many men realise it, but too much exposure to the sun can leave your hair damaged. Some men even experience severe shedding during the hot climate, therefore you should always look to keep your locks protected with a deep working SPF 30 cream on your strands.

3. Tinting Moisturiser

You may think using a tinting moisturiser would be pointless, but summer is actually the best time to use one.  Tinting moisturisers can even out the skin complexion and cover slight skin burn, to give you a healthier and more attractive skin tone. they also hydrate your face  which is a very welcome bonus.  

4. Scalp Therapy Serum

If you suffer from early stages of male pattern baldness or just seem to shed more hair in the summer months, then get hold of a good hair growth serum that works deep into your hair to give you the best possible chance of maintaining a good, thick set of locks.  KGF, saw palmetto and biotin are all excellent hair beneficiary ingredients used in HR23+ Serum, that prevent hair fall and encourage health growth. 

5. Hair Thickening Shampoo

There are literally tons of shampoo brands out there that can hugely benefit your hair from June to September. Be sure to grab a good hair thickening shampoo that is designed to energise hair cells and encourage better hair growth.  A decent shampoo is also great for overall skin health.

This weekend, London’s fashion scene staged their biannual takeover of Zone 1 for the SS18 shows. Those in the know are saying goodbye to their winter beards for the warmer months. The new Braun Series 3 ProSkin is the perfect tool for men with skin not used to a clean-shave.

Themes of androgyny, ‘anything goes’ and the seemingly inescapable allure of 70s style dominated the fashion catwalks this week. Meanwhile, the streets outside the shows were lined with some of the best-dressed men from around the world, arguably just as influential as the headline designers themselves, with their style and grooming choices also impacting trends and sales globally.

The result? Men up and down the country are becoming ever more experimental with their looks, and expressing their style beyond their clothing choices, with facial hair grooming becoming one of the key ways in which they show their colours.

In January, Braun reported that the most popular style sported by Fashion Week attendees was stylised stubble, with groomed goatees emerging as another firm favourite. For SS though, we are witnessing a return to a youthful and fresh look, with a clean shave dominating both inside and outside the shows.

However, for SS, men seem to be saying goodbye to their winter beards for the warmer months – a smart choice, and one which will doubtless help many to avoid the dreaded “beard reverse-tan”. But how should you go about sheering away months of growth without wreaking havoc on the skin below?

The key is to starting with a good trimmer, such as the new Braun Beard Trimmer, which has detachable smart-clippers, making it the perfect tool for trimming facial hair. Bit-by-bit is best – start with the longest guard first, and work your way down to the shortest, before going in with your shaver.

Skin that has been covered with facial hair may be much more prone to shaving-related irritation, so for the full clean shave, you will need a shaver that is designed for men with sensitive skin. The new Braun Series 3 ProSkin shaver has advanced MicroComb technology, a comb-like structure that guides the beard hairs into the cutting element of the trimmer and reduces overall shaving time and thus skin irritation by cutting short and long hairs simultaneously. What’s more, the shaver’s SensoFoils adapt to every facial contour to offer a comfortable shave that is faster than ever before.

Once the job is done, use a gentle facial scrub to remove the dead skin cells that the beard was holding on to, and a light moisturiser with SPF to protect the skin that has been shielded from the light of day for months!

The new Braun Series 3 ProSkin is available at and other retailers from RRP £39.99 (price at the sole discretion of the retailer). High res product image attached. All images are Garcon Jon for Braun at London Fashion Week Men’s.


With Father’s Day on the horizon, Gillette is putting the spotlight back on dads, encouraging guys everywhere to take a moment to ‘Go Ask Dad.’

London, June 2017: Gillette, the world’s leading male grooming brand, has announced the return of its “Go Ask Dad” campaign with the aim of helping young guys through some of the toughest emotional moments in their lives.

For the men of today, information is literally at their fingertips. At the touch of a button, smartphones serve as a gateway to countless how-to videos, resources and guides in a matter of seconds. However, when it comes to understanding and needing advice on the more complicated issues a young man will face, there is no better source than a dad.

Gillette will demonstrate this sentiment with the release of a new, global “Go Ask Dad” video, which opens with sons from around the world beta testing what they think is the latest mobile artificial intelligence technology, by asking it questions about a range of topics. What they don’t know is that it’s their dad on the other side giving the advice.

Grounded in Gillette’s Purpose Father’s Day is a moment to celebrate celebrate fatherly advice, an integral part of a man’s journey through manhood. Naturally, Gillette feel that they should play a role in sparking that emotional connection, bringing the father-son relationship closer together in an age where technology is so heavily depended on.

Launching this summer, the new Dorco Classic razor is set to revolutionise your grooming routine. With seven precision-aligned blades, making it a world first, you can be confident you’ll achieve a close and comfortable shave in the fewest strokes.

The incredible angulated blade technology used in the Dorco Classic gives slimmer, denser blades to reduce any irritation to the skin. The Dorco Classic also has an open structure design to enable easy rinsing, helping to keep blades sharper for longer. A Honeycomb Guard Bar with soft rubber surface allows effortless gliding over skin, adapting to the contours of your face.

That’s not all! An advanced lubricating strip with antioxidants from Argan oil and Calendula extract helps sooth sensitive and dry skin, and heal razor burns. To improve precision, the lubricating strip has been shortened from Dorco’s previous models, making it perfect for those hard-to-reach places without the need for a separate trimmer.

The beautiful razor combines classic design with advanced technology. A vintage inspired, gloss black ergonomic handle ensures optimum control and precision, with a pivoting head for flexibility.

Making life even easier for you, the Dorco Classic aligns with the Dorco patented Common Docking System, enabling you to swap any Dorco 3 Plus, 4 or 6 Plus handles or razor with each other.
