Quick Fixes For Grooming Emergencies

Last thing you want in the morning is being stuck with an unsightly problem that is in need of a quick fix. Lucky for you, we have rounded up common grooming emergencies along some easy solutions to get you out the door in no extra time.

 

Oops, You Cut Yourself Shaving

If you get razor cuts, the immediate remedy is to splash cold water on your face, the colder the better. For faster and more effective results, try rubbing an ice cube on the cut. You can also use a bit of your antiperspirant deodorant on your wound – the aluminum chloride in them not only prevents sweating but also acts as an antibacterial, great for all cuts.
Tip: If you run out of shaving foam, use conditioner.

 

The dreaded D word…Dandruff

Nobody wants pesky white flakes covering their shoulders so while the anti-dandruff shampoo works it’s magic, you can also apply apple vinegar to exfoliate the scalp and get rid of any dryness.

 

Soften A Wiry Beard

Smoke, wind, and cold weather can leave your facial hair coarse and your skin delicate. Moisturize the area with an oil like Penhaligon’s Bayolea Beard & Shave. Out of beard oil? Run down to the kitchen and grab some coconut oil instead.

Flat hair?

Spending extra few minutes in the shower massaging the scalp can do wonders for giving your hair an extra boost. Concentrate on the hairline behind the ears, that’s where most of the excess oil is produced.
Tip: Change up your shampoo and conditioner every month as your hair gets accustomed to the same product.

 

Dry Feet

When you live somewhere like Dubai, your feet are exposed a lot of the time. To battle dry heels, apply lotion before putting on your socks and work shoes so come weekend you’ll have silky smooth feet.
Tip: Use Prismologie foot cream with oud and sapphire.

Sunburn Alert

SPF should be part of your daily routine, even on a cloudy day. But when the sun gets you, use aloe vera based products that contain lidocaine, an anesthetic that can help relieve sunburn pain and sooth the redness.
Tip: Might come as a surprise, but the minty cooling effect that you get from using a shaving cream can also ease some of the pain.
