Luxury hair and beauty portal, the sponsors of’s grooming month, has some quirky grooming tips to help you get glowing skin and healthy hair through the summer season.

Preparation is vital to get the closest shave. Shave after a warm shower, otherwise wet your beard with warm water and wait two minutes for bristles to soften. Follow with Lookfantastic’s American Crew Herbal Shave Cream or Aveda Shave Cream.

Moisturise! Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream or Guinot’s Moisturising and Soothing Aftershave Balm are excellent daily moisturisers to help prevent normal or sensitive skin from becoming dry or chapped.

Suffering from sunburn? Check out Dermalogica After Sun Repair. It’ll feed your skin with vital nutrients and help repair sun-damaged skin. If sunbathing’s not your thing but you want to give the illusion of sun kissed skin, fake it with St Tropez, Fake Bake or Aveda Sun Source.

To keep natural colour for longer, while you’re on holiday bathe in baby oil to lock in your tan and deeply moisturise. Baby oil keeps in 95% of moisture, according to a leading manufacturer.

To prevent blisters and soreness when wearing new shoes, cover sensitive areas such as heels and toes with Vaseline and wear 100% cotton socks. For baby soft skin, smother your entire feet with Vaseline, pop on some cotton socks and leave overnight
