09Sep Essentials for Every Man: Connor's Must-Haves
For many, September brings a welcome return to routines and rituals, so it's a great time of year to look at your grooming shelf and make some self-care investments. If you're looking to update your tools but don't know where to start, take a peak at MÜHLE London Barber- Connor's- top 5 must haves for home-grooming:
1. A Double Edge Safety Razor
"With sensitive skin I rely on using a fresh blade, and having one edge instead of the multiple ones you see in cartridge razors. Personally, I find cartridge razors much too aggressive, with the 3 or 5 blades leaving my skin more susceptible to damage and blemishing."
DE razors have one edge on each side (which is why they're called double-edge) and allow me to use a fresh blade every time I shave. This ensures no snagging or irritation occurs and I have a super-smooth shave every time. Learn more about double edge safety razors.
2. A Silvertip Fibre Shaving Brush
"No DE razor would be complete without a premium brush to massage the hair follicle out of the skin. Alongside the DE razor and Silvertip Shaving Brush, I recommend an Aloe Vera Shaving Cream and Moisturiser."
3. A Manicure Set
"Don't forget your nails! Too many guys forget to give themselves a little manicure from time to time, but this is little a detail that has a big impact on your appearance. As a barber, my hands are my tools and I make sure that my nails are in tip-top-shape."
Complete your Grooming Routine with a Manicure Set and a splash of Aftershave Lotion.
4. A Good Pair of Trimming Scissors
"An absolute essential for moustache and beard tidying, safety scissors will even get those pesky stray hairs in your nose and ears. Unlike nail scissors, trimming scissors have a rounded tip at the end for extra safety."
5. A Hair Trimmer
"Used to freshen up the beard, buzz your head or tidy up any out of control areas. As a barber I use a professional, wireless trimmer at home."
