I have been saying since November that I am ready for spring. So when we got dumped with 8 inches of fresh snow this week I was not a happy camper. I am ready to feel the sun on my face, the flowers popping up from the ground, the birds singing and a fresh start to the new season. I want to wash away the winter blues, the salt off my car and the all things that remind me of the winter we have had this year.
When it comes to getting ready for spring we know the normal routine of putting away the winter clothes, planting flowers and pulling out the pastels. But have you thought about how you are going to freshen up the man in your life? If he is like my husband he is a hard worker. He has been working all winter to clear snow, maintain the cars and there has been some good messy fun along the way. Here are my tips for getting the man in your life cleaned up and ready for spring.
1. Clean up. Literally. Toss him in the shower and get him scrubbed down. Make sure he has something other than the dirty bar of soap he has been using for weeks. Irish Spring just debuted a new line of mens’ body washes and man sized bars of soap. One body was is a 3-in-1, body, hand and face wash with mint extract. The other is a hydrating body wash with shea butter extract. The man sized bars of soap come in a three pack of individually wrapped 6 ounce bars. The exfoliating scrub bar contains milled oats and the hydrating bar also has shea butter extract.
2. Product for his hair. You may get a few funny looks on this one, I know I did the first time I suggested my husband use styling products on his hair. But once he gets over the ‘try something new’ shock he will love all the different types of products that are available for men’s hair care. Pomades come in a lot of varieties from mild hold to maximum hold that will make sure not a lock will move. My husband prefers a medium hold that keeps his hair in place but allows it to move naturally throughout the day.
3. Sharp dressed man. A trend this spring is light colored wide stripped plaids with a skinnier tie. Sock ties are making a comeback but they are now called knit ties. You will notice pocket squares making appearances in front pockets and in a varieties of colors. Don’t forget to socks come in colors beyond black and white. Let his personality shine through in his sock color choice.
