To tackle the dirt and oil that can get trapped in your pores, you need to add an exfoliating scrub like this one to your regimen. It includes everything including jojoba beads, seeds, chamomile extract to soothe, and geranium oil for antibacterial benefits. Not only is it good for your skin but it also helps you get a better shave so you’ll always look sharp. “Using a non-oily scrub before shaving removes surface cells from around the hair follicle to allow for a closer shave,” says Michelle Olson, vice president of education and marketing for the brand. “The key is to use on damp skin with cool water and massage gently so there is no heat or friction to potentially inflame or irritate the skin.”

You’ve had the same shaving cream and gel for years. It works, but why not try something new? This one turns into a foamy, rich lather that makes shaving feel way more luxurious. The oud scent doesn’t hurt either, and it’s ideal for a non-irritating shave. “It’s made of moisturizing ingredients, like coconut acid and glycerin, plus natural essential oils without any harsh foaming agents or synthetic dyes,” says Sergey Uvaydov, barber at The Art of Shaving.

Whatever the temps are outside, dry, cracked lips are inevitable, and you need to make sure you’re doing something about it. But not all lip balms are created equal. “A double duty moisturizer and sun protectant is important for a lip balm,” says dermatologist Dr. Anthony Rossi. This balm from Jack Black, aside from smelling great, is a good choice because it does both and includes shea butter. “A shea butter based balm will give added moisture especially if you already have chapped lips,” he says.
