No matter what you do for a living, it’s important to always look and feel your best. But with our busy schedules, some guys move grooming to the bottom of their list of priorities. The good news is that you don’t have to.
You know what they say – it’s not necessarily about working hard, it’s about working smart. The same concept applies to grooming. It’s not so much about how much effort you put in, but more about how wisely you use and maximise the time and products you have.

Here are four of our top grooming tips for the gent who’s always on the move.
Keep an emergency grooming kit in your car
Keep this kit in your car, bag or a drawer in your desk. It should contain lip balm, a moisturiser, a fragrance and, if you have oily skin, blotting sheets too. These will help to temporarily reduce shine.
When you’re on the go, you don’t always have time to make it home to freshen up before your next appointment – especially if it’s in the evening. With your kit on hand, you can spruce yourself up no matter where you are.
Invest in travel-size products
Your emergency grooming kit would have to be quite big to keep all the stuff you need, so fill it with travel-size products. They’re ideal for about-town and long-distance trips because they’re so convenient to carry.

Establish a morning routine
Depending on what type of morning riser you are, create a morning routine that works best for you. If you’re an early riser and like to leave home early to beat the traffic, establish a quick and easy routine – even if this means waking up 10 minutes earlier every morning.
But if you’re a night owl and struggle to get up in the mornings, you might to want to consider products such as overnight facial lotions. These keep the skin moisturised throughout the night and you’ll wake up with rejuvenated, healthy-looking and radiant skin, easing the burden of completing a full grooming routine every morning.
Invest in an eye cream
Just because you’re always on the move and work and play hard, that doesn’t mean your exhaustion has to be written all over your face. Investing in a good eye cream is an easy way to make sure that the skin around your eyes is always hydrated and healthy and that you look fresh.
