This month marks the official start of spring. If you’re planning on spring cleaning, don’t forget to spring clean your grooming habits as well. In the past, we’ve stressed the importance of taking care of your skin so it stays supple yet resilient against the trauma of shaving. Sharpologist teaches how exfoliating your skin builds upon the razors, shaving creams, and aftershaves you use. By removing dead skin cells and debris, exfoliators allow creams and lotions to penetrate better.
Then there’s the rest of your body. You probably have an exquisite method of cleaning up your beard, but what about the hair elsewhere? A matter of presentation as much as pride, manscaping keeps your body in good form, so we’ve included grooming tips from Ask Men.
Beyond shaving, we offer wardrobe inspiration in the form of a history lesson on 1940s style. From bombers to wide-legged slacks, many of the pieces we wear today have their origin in this time period.
Finally, we’ve included ideas for life-changing solo trips, and a type of story we love reading here at RoyalShave: a writer at The Atlantic discovers DE razors and never goes back.
