Modern Male Grooming

18 Aug , 2022



We know you’re busy and might not have the time to read the whole article. So here’s a quick 3-line summary to take away!

Grooming is for everyone - Don’t let the marketing fool you.

Not sure where to start? Check out your skin and see what bothers you the most. 

Worrying about hair loss? Don’t rush to book your flight to Turkey, we can help!

We’ll say it a little louder for those seated at the back … Grooming is not just for women! More and more men are now using skin care products and are looking after themselves. And at The Alchemy Remedy, we’ve got just what you need! 

1994: the word “metrosexual” was first used to describe a man who puts effort into his grooming. It was quickly associated with footballers and actors alike.

But the really cool thing is that we saw a societal shift, a change to what was traditionally considered “masculine”. 

The growth in men's spending on beauty is not a fad. It’s a sustainable market. The social taboos around male grooming broke down over the years. More men wanted to invest in skincare, and the market exploded. But it can be a complicated world to navigate, so we’ve broken down how you can kickstart your grooming.

Beards: Where to Begin

We’ve all noticed that beard is definitely back in fashion and has been for some time! They can be a fashion statement (think hipsters in Berlin) but beards can also be a great timesaver - saving you from wasting precious time shaving!

Lately, the beard is less scruffy and more well groomed. This is why we have come up with a special collection for you to take care of your facial hair.

Man getting ready for grooming


Our recommendations:

Beard Balm

Our beard balm contains Mango Butter, Shea Butter, Apricot Kernel, Grapeseed, and Jamaican black castor oils with some Vitamin E and is specially formulated to give a long-lasting hold… all while conditioning your beard. It comes in six fragrances: Cherry blossom, Sandalwood & Vanilla, Billionaire, Desi spice, Grapefruit & Berry and Floral & Citrus (Kismet balm) Check out the beard balm cherry blossom: you will smell amazing!


Moisturising Oil

Our Moisturising Beard Oil acts as a gentle skin and beard moisturiser, utilising organic Tangerine oil to reduce redness, itchiness, dandruff, and flakiness. It is perfect for those with healthy beards who simply want to lock moisture into damp hair and give it a long-lasting shine.

Repairing Oil

Our repairing beard oil is a deep conditioner but also offers protection for your hair from the heat and the elements…perfect for the summer and nourishing for the winter - win win!

One Last Beard Tip

Want to go all in? Instead of buying individual products, we recommend you get the bundle beard oil trio: three oils and trimming scissors. Not a bad deal at all.

Skincare: Where to Begin

Why shouldn’t men look healthier and have younger-looking skin? The skincare world can be scary, with scientific words thrown around and insane prices for creams and lotions. But when you break it down, it’s quite simple. 

Take a look at your skin. Do you suffer from dry skin or are you more oily?  Does redness bother you or are you prone to breakouts? Pick the main thing that irritates you, and look for a product that helps with that.

Our Tangerine Oil reduces skin redness and helps fight acne breakouts.

Our Rejuvenating Skin Oil nourishes and harmonises your skin - you’ll quickly notice the difference.

Haircare: Where to Begin

If you think that your hair is starting to thin and you’re not ready to go bald, don’t fret - you don’t need to book your hair implant surgery just yet! There are products that help stimulate hair growth.

It can be a minefield out there. We strongly advise you NOT to google hair growth products! To make it easier, we created a root stimulation bundle that includes oil, spray, and a microneedle system. They all work together to nourish and stimulate your hair follicles.

If you are also one of those people whose hair grows unevenly, or who has coarse/curly hair we have exactly what you need: our Strengthening Oil helps make hair roots stronger and thicker. It also encourages hair growth at a more even pace 

Phew! We hope you made it to the end! Look, male grooming in the modern age can be tough. But we at The Alchemy Remedy are here to help you every step of the day.
