Elements of Style – Post Summer Revival
Summer can wreak havoc on a golf course – from scorching fairways and greens to turning your golf cart seat into a leg griddle. While you’re out on the course, the intense heat and sun can also have damaging effects on your skin and hair. But with regular maintenance, you can revive even the most parched profile.
The Skin Basics
Your morning routine should include applying a face moisturizer with an SPF of 20+. Then sunscreen should be applied whenever you’re out in the sun for the day. Even if you’re careful, you might still burn. For post-sun and everyday skincare, we recommend using Jack Black products. Not only is the line formulated from the finest plant extracts, herbs and healing botanicals, it’s also lightweight and non-greasy. Guys also appreciate the fact it’s dermatologist-tested, colorant-free, cruelty-free and fragrance-free. You don’t have to worry about it competing with your cologne or making you smell as though you’ve hijacked your wife’s beauty products. Great skin also thrives when old skin is sloughed off so new skin cells can breathe again. We encourage men to embrace the notion of getting regular facials and exfoliate every two to three days to keep pores clean and clear. Honestly, facials aren’t a hardship to a guy who has had one. What’s not to love about feeling relaxed and refreshed? Plus, when your skin looks good, people notice.
Hair Care & Repair
Sun, chlorine and saltwater can dry your skin and completely toast your hair. It’s also easy to skip regular haircuts during the summer due to vacations and crazy schedules.
We see a lot of guys this time of year in need of some serious hair repair. The best way to fight frizz and repair damage is with a quality haircut. If you wear your hair longer – like Phil Mickelson or Bubba Watson – you don’t have to cut it short to get it in shape. A good trim plus the right products and a little technique will help you keep it managed and looking great. For healthier hair, use a conditioner to keep it moisturized. Quality styling products – pastes, grooming creams or gels – keep hair in place throughout the day. If you color your hair to camouflage your gray, chances are the sun has faded your color and you’ll need to get it touched up. If you’re considering covering your gray, our Fountain of Youth hair color adds pigment to the hair, making it less dry and wiry. Your hair looks more youthful and healthier.
These days, many salons that cater to men are reaching back to the roots of old barbershops and country clubs with their design and atmosphere. The key for most men is to be comfortable in their surroundings, and to break through the ridiculous idea that taking care of your skin and hair is only for women. We encourage you to visit any of your local salons – be it one of our 17 locations in the Metroplex or another – and get the proper care to keep your style clean and fashionable.
