Although the practise of men’s grooming is becoming more mainstream, these are the common mistakes many men still make.

While men are getting more acquainted with the practise of daily grooming and maintenance, there are still common mistakes made that should be avoided. From unkempt eyebrows to scaly handshakes, we break down the most frequent faux pas and how to fix them – fast!
No, guys – despite what you think, your skin is not so tough that it doesn't need daily SPF. Sunscreen isn’t just for beach days and holidays; it should be applied all year round to help not only prevent skin cancer but also early signs of ageing.

The skin on your face is very different to that on your body. Thinner, delicate and easily damaged, it requires a dedicated cleanser designed for both the face and beard. Regular soap, shower gel or body wash foam up the oil on your skin and rinse it away, raising the pH and drying out your skin. Opt for a product that is formulated to gently clean your face and fuzz without completely stripping the natural oils that keep your beard and skin healthy.

This is common and understandable. But overspraying your cologne or deodorant is not necessary – and it’s a waste. Fragrances are meant to enhance your natural scent, not overpower it. Limit yourself to no more than two spritzes to your bare chest and wrist, as your body heat will continue to push out the scent throughout the day.

Our hands and feet tend to work overtime, and yet they are often forgotten in the grooming routine. While a monthly mani and pedi does wonders, it can be expensive. We suggest applying a nutrient-dense hand and foot cream every morning and night to combat the dryness.

Unkempt, unruly eyebrows; nose and ear hairs peaking out; and a neck beard: these are all signs that you are suffering from grooming neglect. Just like your daily shave, these parts of your facial hair also need to be regularly tamed and trimmed so that you are indeed putting your best face forward.

How to wear sunset tones of yellow and orange from head to toe

- - No comments
We take a deep dive into the newest colours of the season – sunset shades of fiery orange, mustard yellow and Kalahari reds.
Move over Millennial Pink, there’s a new set of shades in town. Kalahari reds, fiery oranges, mustard yellows and burnt cinnamon are front and centre this season, as seen on some of our favourite celebrities – including Priyanka Chopra, who was seen out and about in the Big Apple wearing a layered look of yellows. Here are the best ways to incorporate this palette into your spring wardrobe.

For a colourful take on the coveted and classic plain white tee, try layering a crochet crop top over it and teaming it with a pleated checked skirt in complementary shades. Finish the look with a rust-coloured belted bag and a pair of red-hot strappy heels worn with white socks.

One of the ways to make your mark with this trend is to embrace a feminine silhouette. An off-the-shoulder dress with '70s-style broderie anglaise or eyelet detail softens the boldness of the colour. Keep it flowy or cinch in the waist by adding an obi-style belt, and throw on a pair of strappy pointed-toe heels in a matching colour.

A cute romper in a vintage scarf print is one of the best ways to subtly wear this marigold colour if you’re not brave enough to wear it head to toe. You can always add on a relaxed white linen shirt, unbuttoned, which will downplay the brightness of the yellow.

Who would have thought that layering a crop over a shirt was even allowed by the fashion gods? Create a masculine/feminine contrast by throwing a crochet V-neck crop top over a short-sleeved shirt in a classic print such as paisley. Button the shirt right up to the top to keep the look fresh and modern. If you’re feeling really daring, pair the ensemble with a pair of wide-legged or palazzo-style pants, leather belted bag, strappy heels and a cute and casual bucket hat.

If stripes are more your scene, slip on a twinset – this matching crop top and skirt combo is showing no signs of disappearing any time soon. The vertical stripes will elongate the body, and the subtle strip of skin will draw attention to the smallest part of the waist.

Use yellow eye shadow
For a head-turning look perfect for a special occasion or night on the town, pack on a bright yellow eye shadow, concentrating on the base of the lid and creating a rounded shape up to the crease. Keep your eyes bare to really make the electric yellow pop.

Try the orange lip
Ruby reds and blue tones are taking a backseat to make way for full-on tangerine queen colours. The coral lip is especially suited to darker skin tones, and with a dusting of gold eyeshadow, you’ll be good to go.

Whether this is your first or your fourth, having a baby comes with loads of stress! We’ve put together a clothing checklist to help keep some of the stress at bay.
Investing in a wardrobe for your little one can be exciting, but it can be easy to get carried away, wanting to purchase every cute thing you come across. The most important thing to remember when shopping for your newborn is comfort. We’ve created a carefully considered checklist of essential items, so you can spend less time fussing over clothing and more time bonding with your baby.

Purchase a variety of blankets – you want a couple with some stretch to them as these are great for swaddling and sleeping. Heavier blankets can be used to wrap your baby up in chilly weather during outdoor walks. As well as being great for positioning around the crib, plush toys will be a welcome distraction when your baby gets a little older as changing them can become somewhat of an extreme sport!

Separates allow you to change one piece of dirty clothing without having to assemble a whole new outfit. For example, layer your baby’s body vest over their leggings – if their nappy leaks slightly you can just change the leggings instead of having to remove the entire outfit. Look for stretchy waistbands that fit easily over your baby's nappy and belly, which will expand as your baby gains weight.

Babies are cute and cuddly, but they are also messy. The chances of your baby coating their outfits in food and spit up are pretty high. Rather than only having a few body vests in your child’s size, investing in bulk ensures that you will never run out when those inevitable stains and spills occur.

Sleepsuits will keep your baby warm and snug, and body vests will make changing their nappy a dream, as very little undressing is required. These are the items you’ll most likely dress your baby in during the first few weeks, so stock up. Opt for bulk packs of long-sleeve body vest and short-sleeve body vests to make your money go further. Unless you’re expecting a small infant, 0 – 3 months (rather than newborn) is an ideal size initially, as your baby will grow into the size very quickly.


Beanies are an important item to invest in for your infant, as babies easily lose heat from the tops of their heads. Socks too are a must for when you aren’t using a sleepsuit. The practicality of the bib will never be underestimated, and you’ll find yourself needing to change your baby’s bib multiple times a day. Avoid bibs with plastic backing as these can go mouldy.
