When it comes to game season, there’s nothing like an outdoor sweat session on the football pitch to get the blood pumping. The only downside? Greater potential for sunburns and oily skin; especially if you don’t have your routine in check! A good men’s skincare routine, pre-game, will not only keep you looking your best on the field but also help prevent shiny skin after the game. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you play even better. Our grooming tutorials give you the tools to get the best looks both on and off the field.
How to get the look
Start with the Purefectly Clean Face Wash, ensuring your skin is clean and revitalized before kick-off. Infused with charcoal powder and peppermint extract, a quick wash with this gel leaves skin smooth and fresh. It gets rid of the dirt from your skin before you apply your moisturiser, this will ensure complete effectiveness.
Secondly, use the Greater Look Face Moisturiser to hydrate and protect skin. Both lightweight and comfortable, this moisturiser hydrates without leaving skin feeling sticky or greasy. The Greater Look combines two of Beckham’s favourite ingredients, quinoa and spirulina. These ingredients are known to strengthen and energise, whilst maintaining a shine-free outlook. When it comes to David Beckham’s skincare routine, it’s non-negotiable. “Let’s face it, I’m giving my skin a hard time, I’ve been looking for something when my skin needs an instant punch that will keep up with my lifestyle and won’t let me down. An all-in-all product to keep my skin looking and feeling great.” explains Beckham.
Our model, Olivier’s, hair was a freshly-shorn sharp fade on the sides with some length on top. To tackle Olivier’s thick, strong, naturally straight hair, Duchemin (hair stylist) started by washing the hair. “I washed it with the Twice As Smart Taming Shampoo & Conditioner for an extra shot of nourishment”.
Duchemin then set to work on a slicked-back version of the ‘quiff’. Inspired by the 50’s Rockabilly’s, the look is categorised by the way the front section of the hair is brushed upwards and backwards to create volume from the forehead.
“I dried the hair with a blow dryer, using my fingers to comb the hair at first, finishing with a flat brush to brush the hair back. Using a flat brush to create the ‘quiff’, will also help you add structure. You could also simply use your fingers which suits those who want a more natural finish.” - Duchemin
Duchemin then worked Smooth Back Shaping Pomade, through the lengths of the hair to hold it in place for the game.
Finally, give the whole thing a good once-over with the Tight Grip Fixing Spray to keep it all in place as, when it comes to the football field, you want your focus on the ball, not stray hair.
