The summer months are some of the most anticipated and with them comes the need to ensure that we are looking sharp, so to ensure that you are ready we thought that we would share some of our favourite tips for looking at your best.
Unfortunately getting summer ready is not about focusing on one single thing, instead if you really want to hit the summer sun at your best, you need to prepare from various angles, each of which you can see below.
Revitalise Your Skin
Looking good this summer is not all about the clothes that you wear, it starts with getting the skin you’re in looking good and although there seems to be a stigma surrounding moisturising your skin being for women, the fact is whatever your sex healthy skin will always improve your appearance.
With so many men’s skin care products on the market it can be hard to know which ones are suitable for you but figuring that out is vital in order to get the best results as using a product that isn’t designed for your skin type can result in the opposite effect.
An example of that would be using an oil based moisturiser being applied to naturally oily skin, creating a dual combination of oils that build upon each either, blocking pores and creating blemishes.
Take a moment to think about your skin type and make your choice of moisturiser to suit, for example we suggest that men with dry skin take a look at Dove Men+Care Ultra Hydrating Cream or for those with shiny, oily skin you need to be looking more towards Tom Ford’s Daily Moisturizer.

Drop Extra Weight
No summer outfit looks at its best when you have a ‘muffin top’ spilling over the edge of your waist band and although we are quickly approaching the summer months, you can still make changes that can help you combat those love handles.
While exercise is vital to ensure that you are going to be able to burn off the calories that are holding you back from looking your best, the fact is that your diet will determine the nature of your results.
A workout regime will certainly help you to shed those pounds but getting your calorie intake right is as much as 80% of the battle ahead of you.
Because of that we can suggest that you take a look at meal plans available online or try something like Bistro MD to see if you can reduce your excessive calorie intake and as an added hint, if you go with the latter option here you can find cheaper offers on your first month here.
