Way back – in a past life before I was married – I was the Boarding Officer on Navy patrol boats. And in that role I witnessed a lot of illegal fishing ugliness. That’s why when I heard that the Humane Society International (who we donate 1% of our sales to as a part of 1% for the Planet) have had a massive victory in court to put an end to shark culling on the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, I had to share it.
Perhaps you’re a surfer, or a swimmer? Heck, even if you’re not an ocean lover, surely you’re interested in freeing the planet of pollution? You know, for the greater good and all. With a little thought, we can all do our bit for the environment. Take the ‘Seabin Project’, for example
Congested skin… the buddy ol’ pal that’s overstayed his welcome. Bumps. Lumps. Rough patches. Dry flaky bits. Zits bigger than Mt. Everest. Yep… they can be a real pain in the cahoonas. So how can you officially give congested skin the fick for good?
Gents: I have a question for you… what exactly is stopping you from making the switch to an all-natural grooming routine? Think it’s going to turn you into a Kombucha guzzling, bare footed hippy? Or perhaps you believe it won’t actuallywork?
If you’re all over this men’s skincare caper then you already know how important it is for men to moisturise. But if you’re still on the learning curve I’m here to give you a bit of insight into your body’s largest organ. If you want to keep it in good shape, moisturising is something you shouldn’t skimp on.
Back in the ol’ days, men were often pressured to aspire to a certain male archetype. The wage earning, strong, stoic hunter/gatherer kind of lad. Always in control, always succeeding, always reaching for more, never truly able to express his emotions or be vulnerable. You know the one *looking at you, Don Draper*.
There’s a whole gamut of shave products out there on the supermarket shelf, so you could be forgiven for being just a tad confused. Maybe you wanted to try something new but all the choices made you swoon so you ended up just chucking the usual Brut in your trolley.
It’s a fact: facial hair can tell you a lot about a man. Whether he lives in the jungle or on camera. Whether he’s a corporate bloke or a father of three. Regardless, for most of us lads, grooming can be a magical myth we can never get right.
Women often get told (usually by their grandmas who wash their face in leftover cabbage water, we know…go figure!) how important it is to take care of their skin from an early age. Men - not so much. But wait…you don’t get off scot-free.
The downside of shaving can be the razor bumps and acne that ensue after the job is done. Not only can they magically appear after you’ve shaved, but can become painful when new hair begins to grow in.
Feeling that itch? Not that one! The one where you just gotta’ getaway and tap into your inner outdoorsman. Oz has many hidden gems that will suit any activities and camping style. But where to next? Leave that to us.
