Most assume that a lot of men can wash their faces with the same bar of soap they use for their bodies and get on with their way. If this is what you do in the morning, then you have to step up your game. Skincare isn't nearly as complicated as most people make it out to be. In fact, some of the best advice out there is that - which is incredibly simple. With that in mind, here are six essential skincare tips that all men must know.

Wash Off The Day - as tempting as it can be to do so, you cant crawl straight into bed after a long and tiring day. First, you need to take time to wash your face. While this might not seem too important, you must remember that a lot of dirt and grime collects on your skin throughout the day. If you skip your nighttime wash, this will remain on your face, resulting in blocked pores and breakouts.

Get Plenty of Rest - Once your skin is cleansed and moisturized, you can go ahead and get in bed. Sleep gives your skin an opportunity to refresh and repair.

Make Time for Exercise - while exercise does make it easier to sleep, it benefits your skin more directly too. This is because your sweat helps to remove toxins. Because of this, sports like rugby really do help (I need to take my own advice on this!) you could even create your own custom designed rugby union team kit. It's important to remember to cleanse and exfoliate after working out, as this prevents your pores from blocking.

Limiting Your Skin Exposure - A glowing tan can make you feel more confident. However, that doesn't mean that you should put your skin or health at risk to get one. Every time you go outside, you must ensure that you apply sun-cream. Those who don't, increase their risk of getting sun damage which can cause irritation, redness and peeling.
Buy A Quality Razor - there are many different razors on the market and not all of them are going to do you good. While four or five-blade razors might advertise a closer shave, you must consider at what cost this will come with. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, then it is best to have fewer blades. You should also shave with the grain, rather than against it and use a moisturizing shave gel.

Eating The Right Foods - as difficult as it may be for those with a sweet tooth, if you want healthy skin, then reducing your sugar intake can make a huge difference. The reason for this is that sugar is known to cause breakouts and acne. That being said, it's not just sugar that you have to watch out for. There are a number of foods that can cause skin problems, such as caffeine!

Skincare doesn't have to be difficult but we only have one skin, so let's look after it and treasure it.

Hello, hello - happy Sunday! It's just gone midnight and it's suddenly occurred to me that I haven't done a favorites post in so long and I've been loving so many different little things at the moment that I thought it would be the best way to tell you all about them. So let's get started straight away, shall we?

The VO5 Texturising Gum has been my best friend when it comes to styling my hair lately, I don't do this everyday but when I fancy putting a bit of extra effort into my appearance (again, this doesn't happen a lot) this has been my go-to and has such a nice finish to the end product, without leaving it looking or feeling greasy and that is definitely something I look for in a hair product. I used to use this product all the time a few years back but have only just started reaching for it again and I forgot how amazing it actually is.
If you're from England, you will be familiar with the very unexpected ray of sunshine that we've had lately and with that, comes in need of a very good deodorant. I've raved about Nivea products loads on my blog and have had the privilege of working with them so many times, this post isn't a paid sponsorship but I genuinely love all their products that I've tried and it's such a trusted brand for me now that I love sharing their products with you all. So I've recently been using their Nivea Men 48 Hour Deodorant and it has done the trick, let me tell you! The one I've been using has such a fresh scent that I've been loving.

Along with my V05 Texturising Gum, I've been reaching for the Johnny's Power Hold Hairspray, which again doesn't make my hair look greasy and holds everything in place. I've also discovered that it doesn't sweat in the hot weather and still gives your style a firm hold for the whole day, which I was so impressed with. I actually got gifted this item and ever since I tried it, I've been reaching for this over all my other hairsprays.

A few weeks ago, I got kindly gifted a lovely PR package from the team over at Nivea which had lots of products in, including their new Peel Off Mask and it has done wonders to my skin. I do have quite sensitive skin and anything seems to effect it, so looking after my skin is very important and I've found using this product a few times a week along with my skincare routine has made such a huge difference to the dry patches on my skin and has made my skin feel very soft and hydrated! Along with this, I've been using the Clear Shaving Gel from Milkman Grooming for about a year now, again I was lucky enough to work with them on a giveaway campaign but this post is not at all sponsored by them and all views are my own, however... I cannot reach for anything else. I love how it's clear so you can see exactly what areas need shaving and it makes my skin feel very smooth and I'm so happy with these two products.
Did someone say shoes? I've never been a 'shoe person' if you catch my drift, I kinda get one pair and then live in them for about 4 years, even when they're falling a part and making me walk with a limp. My beautiful Reebok trainers have finally got to that stage so I wanted to opt for something a little lighter for the summer season and these Adidas trainers are amazing for that (I don't know what they're called but I'll leave a link to them here for you to check out, if you want too!).
