Grooming Guru Essentials: Spiezia Propolis Ointment

As someone who suffers from psoriasis I’m constantly on the look out for products that can improve  or relieve the condition. Although, the only thing that really seems to work for me is sunlight and seawater (a great reason for me to self-prescribe holidays!) various lotions and portions have helped over the years too.

My current favourite is this fantastic ointment from one of my favourite organic skincare brands, Spiezia. Perfect for psoriasis, as well as for eczema, sore, dry skin and athlete’s foot, it’s a rich topical treatment made from extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, calendula and propolis – a resinous product bees produce in their hives to protect against bacteria, parasites and other infections. It’s great for keeping skin soft and supple and to prevent flaking and, thanks to a blend of lavender, thyme and grapefruit extracts, smells absolutely amazing too.

I love the smell so much I also dab a tiny amount on my chest before bed and the soothing smell of lavender acts as a brilliant sleep aid. Spiezia products are also produced in one of my favourite parts of the world – Cornwall – and are 100% organic. Do you really need any more reasons to give it a go?!

Spiezia Propolis Ointment costs £17.95 for 50ml and is available from www.spieziaorganics.com

Grooming Guru Essentials: Anthony Logistics Facial Cleanser

When I first started writing about male grooming many years ago this superb cleansing for dry or sensitive skin was one of the first products I genuinely fell in love with. Because it’s non-drying, it’s perfect for skin like mine which can be a bit on the sensitive side and which easily ends up as tight as a drum after using cheaper cleansers. Glycerin-based (so much kinder on the skin that soap) it features extracts of azulene (an organic oil that’s great for redness and irritation) and a raft of other natural skin conditioners. It smells fantastic and – best of all – it’s bright blue!
