SUPERDRUG LAUNCHES NEW BEARD THREADING SERVICE



Get a sharper cheek line at Superdrug’s Beauty Studio

Men’s grooming is no longer just the preserve of sleek celebrities and Love Island lads as Superdrug’s recent Men’s Grooming Survey revealed. With over half of men (54%) admitting to having a beauty or grooming treatment in a salon it’s become just as much the norm to invest in one’s appearance as it is for women.

The latest launch from Superdrug’s Beauty Studio Beard Threading introduced to over 300 stores around the UK with Brow & Lash Bars, with the service priced from £10.

There are many benefits of why men should skip the blade. In threading, a thin cotton or polyester thread is doubled, then twisted and rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair out at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair all in one go for an even finish.

The art of threading the beard will help achieve a sharper, cleaner and precise line, leaving you very much satisfied with the results. Another benefit of threading the beard line, is that facial hair grows back thinner and less course, allowing results to last anywhere from two to six weeks for most men.

They can’t guarantee the chiselled jaw of David Beckham – voted number one men’s grooming icon in Superdrug’s 2019 survey – but with the new service you can at least hone your facial hair to achieve the Beckham look.

Jerry Walkling, Superdrug Retail Director said: “We’ve seen a real evolution of the beard. Five years ago men were just excited to be able to grow their facial hair and used a long, out of control beard as a badge of their masculinity. Today it’s about having a beard that makes you look groomed and younger. We’ve seen a definite rise in popularity for men’s grooming ranges in recent years and as such we’re constantly expanding our range to meet customers’ needs.”

THE ESSENTIAL AUTUMN GROOMING GUIDE FOR MEN

Get your skin, body and hair in tip-top condition throughout September to November, with our complete autumn male grooming guide.

Not many men know this, but autumn season can play absolute havoc with your skin, body and hair. The mornings become darker, the trees become barer, and you can definitely feel that chill in the air. As autumn kicks in, now is the time to give your grooming routine a serious rethink in order to ensure that your skin, hair and body are well-prepared for the change in climate.

The autumn wind, central heating and low humidity can affect your skin complexion, stripping the cells of their natural moisture and leaving it dry, dehydrated and prone to itching. The change in climate can also alter the way your hair looks, feels and grows.

So, in order to counter these problems, here's a simple, but effective, male grooming routine that will help get you through the autumn months, looking and feeling better than ever...

Skincare

Even for those of you who have naturally oily skin, your skin is still likely to suffer from dryness and dehydration during the autumn months. In fact, the skin often attempts to overcompensate for a lack of moisture by producing excess sebum, which is a common cause of oily skin in the first place. It may not be visible, but it is highly likely that your skin will suffer.

You could be here all day choosing skincare products, but the thing you should really remember is that there are three things that every man should have in their skincare arsenal. You'll need a good exfoliator (scrub), cleanser (wash), and hydrating moisturiser.


Be sure to use a gentle facial scrub no more than three times a week. This is one of your most powerful weapons when it comes to keeping dry areas at bay. Scrubbing away those dead skin cells will help get your skin looking and feeling smoother and brighter.

Be sure to consider using cream cleansers in the colder weather, as these tend to contain more hydrating oils. If you're acne-prone, ensure that your gel cleanser is free of chemical irritants such as Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS), as these can damage skin, resulting in breakouts of spots.

And finally, a good moisturiser is absolutely key to keeping you skin looking its best. Apply morning and night, following your cleanse, for best results. You could even go for a day moisturiser and a night moisturiser, but it's not essential. One moisturiser for both applications should suffice.

Body Care

It's not just your facial skin that can suffer badly throughout the autumn months, because the skin on your limbs and torso can also suffer.  We wrap up warmly as the autumn chill kicks in, and that means our bodies are more prone to sweating throughout the day. Even when indoors, with central heating on, our bodies are still warm.


This excess sweating can actually cause the skin to dry, become flaky, and even cause rash outbreaks. To avoid this, get yourself a good body butter. Body butters will keep your skin hydrated, fresh, and even out your complexion. Use once a day, after your shower, be it morning or night. 

Hair Care

And then there was the hair. Many men consider their hair to be their strongest physical asset, and it's easy to see why. But, as the autumn sets in, our hair can actually suffer quite badly, so it's important that you get on top of your hair care routine when it needs you most.

It’s important to lay the foundations before going wild with the styling products, so wash the hair thoroughly with a good quality shampoo, no more than three to four times a week. If you are prone to seasonal shedding, particularly around autumn time, which so many men are, then be gentle with washing, and try to avoid conditioners, because they tend to make hair finer, which can weaken the strands further.


To create volume, using a hair dryer is advisable, but don't be too aggressive. You'll want to avoid excess damage to your strands, where possible.  Once dried, you’re ready for your styling product of choice. Whatever styling product you use, make sure it's free from as many chemicals as possible, and not too thick in texture. A softer product will be kinder to your hair.

10 LUXURIOUS MALE BEAUTY PRODUCTS THAT YOU MUST TRY BEFORE YOU DIE












If you're a man who takes a lot of pride in your grooming, then be sure to consider these ten absolute must-have men's beauty products. With this lot, you'll never have to worry about your skin, body, hair, and health again...

1. The Grey Men's Skincare's face wash contains natural charcoal extracts that help draw out dirt and excess oils for a really deep clean. This non-drying formula gently washes without stripping the skin of moisture, and also helps to soften facial hair so you get a closer shave. It comes in sleek monochromatic packaging.

2. Czech & Speake's moisturising body and bathing oil is a decadent way to hydrate and nourish your skin. Laced with the label's 'No.88' scent - a fresh bouquet of Bergamot, Geranium and Sandalwood - it's packaged in a smart shaker bottle that distributes just the right amount. Massage the residue-free serum into damp skin after showering or couple it with a steam bath for a more potent dose.

3. Formulated with finely milled Pumice and Bamboo Stem, Aesop's 'Redemption' body scrub gently buffs away dirt and dead skin cells. Fir, Pine, Sage Leaf and Clove essential oils hydrate and soothe as well as having a fresh, woodsy aroma.

4. Bear's 'Restore' supplements are formulated to energise, making them ideal for active lifestyles or simply those who suffer from office fatigue. Each capsule is enriched with Vitamin K2 to assist the development and maintenance of bone health, and Vitamin D to support the absorption of calcium and antioxidant Gingko, which helps to promote blood flow and improve circulation.

5. TOM FORD's luxurious soap is infused with Oud Wood - one of the rarest and most expensive ingredients used in perfumery. It has a rich, musky scent heightened by notes of Rose Wood, Cardamom, Sandalwood and Vetiver. Work the hydrating formula into a creamy lather - the distinctive scent will last long after you step out of the shower.

6. With a seasonal climate, pollution and lifestyle changes, your skin won't stay the same all year round, so it makes sense to switch up grooming products. Dr. Barbara Sturm's face cream has a lightweight texture that works well during warm weather. It's infused with antioxidant-rich ingredients including Purslane Extract, Bisabolol and Panthenol that fight free radicals, while Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E soothe and nourish.

7. Worry less about baldness and thinning hair with Europe's number one hair growth supplement. HR23+ is packed with 23 key hair beneficiary ingredients, designed to help prevent hair fall and promote healthy hair growth. If it's hair loss you're trying to stop, then this multi-vitamin supplement is the solution you've been looking for.

8. The eyes are the window to the soul, and also the first place to show the effects of too many late nights and too much screen time. Help keep dark circles at bay with Haeckels' 'Eye Bright Contour' cream – it's formulated with Caffeine and a specially developed Kelp Bioferment solution to reduce puffiness and draw out toxins. Made using only natural ingredients, it's lightly moisturising and has a nice cooling effect on your skin.

9. The ideal shampoo and bodywash combo for gents on the go, Blind Barber's Lemongrass Tea formula is invigorating and effective. Designed to create a rich lather, it's gentle enough for daily cleansing and is sulfate-free to bolster the health and strength of stressed locks. 

10. Take care of your skin while you're catching the rays on your next getaway with Sisley - Paris' silky sun cream. This non-greasy, water-resistant formula contains Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Mango Extract to help hydrate and moisturise skin, as well as SPF30 to protect from harmful UVA and UVB rays. The tinted finish leaves you looking immediately brighter and more radiant, too.
