Dear Stylist

Tom Ford Bronzing Gel, �36.

Tom Ford Bronzing Gel, �36.

I’ve been noticing more and more that men are taking better care of themselves. I’ve missed the boat as I thought having a moisturiser was revolutionary. Can you recommend me some products? Anything that will turn the clock back or just make me look a bit better taken care of!

It started with moisturiser and now the beauty industry has certainly awoken to the fact that the pressure to look good is not just isolated to women any more.

With the current trend for a bearded visage there are whole product lines devoted to beard maintenance and grooming. Let me lift the curtain on the breadth of men’s grooming products.

Men’s skin can take a battering with a typical regimen of neglect and shaving. ESPA’s Men’s collection has everything going for it. The price point is good, it’s perfect for travel and everything you need is in one kit. The Hydrator is great for post-shave hydration.

Half of the battle to grooming perfection is well-styled hair. Daimon Barber has a line of men’s grooming products, with the original pomade a jewel in its crown. It has a slick, strong hold and the packaging is sleek too.

Now to the doyen of men’s grooming products you didn’t know you needed yet is Tom Ford. The products are very much high-end luxury and that is reflected in the price point, but they are very effective. This bronzing gel with its easy and streak-less application gives a wash of colour that will make you appear like you have just returned from a jaunt to St Tropez.
