Ah, spring! We’ve been looking forward to it with such intensity that – now that it’s here – we can barely believe it.  Finally, with the winter being over, comes the time to shake off hibernation and get ready for a bit of sun.

The winter was cold and harsh, so bringing back your glow and looking your best in spring won’t come easy… that is – unless you do something about it. Don’t think that all the pampering (we’ll use the term loosely here given you’re a hardcore man and all) you did in winter was enough!

Here, a few tips that will help bring your sexy back:

Find a Good Face Cream

Like it or not, working a lot and being in the sun will damage your skin if you don’t look after it. Better to make use of some kind of moisturiser or else, in a couple of years, you’ll regret all the treatments you’ve been skipping. Don’t think it’ll make you less of a man; being rugged is manly as hell and bad skincare is going to do you more harm than good.

Use What You Have

Good news, your winter essentials can be reused, which means that you don’t have to throw away anything, nor do you have to spend an arm and a leg on new products. British springtime obviously can be quite harsh, and it’s still a long time ‘til summer. Get used to this transition period, though, and make sure you look as handsome as ever.

Cold or Not?

With winter out of the way, you might think it’s time to wear lighter clothes, right? Doesn’t have to be. Rock that sweatshirt style, and show everyone how fashionable you really are. Oversized is outdated, which is why you should pick lines that fit you just right. Mind you, the weather can change rather fast, so don’t be surprised if you get too hot. Best way to avoid this is to wear a light jacket or blazer, one that you don’t mind carrying over your shoulder as the afternoons get a tad warmer.
