Whoa mamaand yes, this feels just as good as it sounds. Similar to a standard beard oil, but far more satisfying to use, this treatment provides a deep dose of nutrients to keep whiskers soft and shiny. Just submerse the vial in hot water for one minute before applying to clean, damp scruff.
For those clean-shaven men with a serious case of beard envy, a barbershop-style hot towel is an equally luxe alternative. All you need is a hand towel, a pot of hot water, and your choice of aromatic: You can use scented essential oils, Vick's Vapor Rub, or even a nourishing face oil like this one from PLANT.
If you're looking for a way to cool down instead, this gel is the cure for what ails you. Packed with the power of ten thousand arctic winds, it taps caffeine and menthol for a brisk, cooling kick, along with a supercharged dose of moisture. Apply it before your moisturizer for an extra morning pick-me-up.
You may have doubts about applying a mask, but we'd bet our next paycheck that this one will make you a convert. Like many clay masks, it taps kaolin clay and volcanic ash to clear out stubborn pores, but adds a dose of avocado oil to soothe and soften skin. If you can't spare 10 minutes for that, you are truly beyond our help.
Some men, for myriad reasons, don't have time to add a step to their grooming regimenso try swapping one out instead. This rich, stimulating oil takes the place of your daily moisturizer, healing and hydrating skin with a woodsy scent and a tingly sensation that add some pep to your morning routine.
