Boy M’s Morning Hair and Skin Routine… Exposed!
The other day we announced an open call to help beef up our Morning Routines…Exposed! series and, well… Ask and you shall receive, I guess! We got so many responses that we created a special folder for all of them, and we invite you to keep them coming (especially if you are a guy, since we know naturals has a bit of a boy problem,* and we’ve only gotten one of those so far). Now, without further ado, meet M.
Name: M (I’m male)
Current weather: Cold and rainy Toronto
Skin: Acne-prone, but oily and dehydrated
Before the shower….
In the shower…
Outside the shower…
I use alcohol-free witch hazel (Garden of Wisdom brand, which is online only, or the more ubiquitous Thayers Fragrance-Free Alcohol-free Witch Hazel). The key elements for me are a) no alcohol and b) no fragrance. I also use organic grapeseed oil mixed together in palm of my hand and applied with both hands. For sunscreen, I like BurnOut Clean & Clear SPF 32 (zinc oxide only). I try to use this most days.
Now weigh in, people. Have you used any of the products M uses? Any other recommendations for him? I’ll say I was intrigued by the powder before shaving thing. I didn’t know people did that!
