The Manual’s Earth Day Grooming Guide

manuals earth day grooming guide
Happy Earth Day! While we are always fist bumping planet Earth here at The Manual, today is a special day for our globe. We are continuing our love fest with the good lookin’ eco gals over at O&N Collective to hear what is trending in their world organically, sustainably and locally. Michelle Witherby offers up her tips and shares conscious picks below:

bkr Glass & Silicone Water Bottle

Born from a belief that green products should be creative, effortless and cool, bkr drew on their love of modern art and minimalism to create a bottle that you’ll want to carry. bkr is a statement against a disposable world, transporting water between continents, and against the chemicals we ingest from plastics when we base our decisions on convenience. Hydration is key for joint, muscle, and skin health. Pure, fresh water boosts the immune system, improves mood and energy levels and keeps you looking your sexy best. 500 mL and 1 L bottles available.

PJ Candle Co.

Admit it, guys like candles too! But certainly when a candle proudly bears the name ‘Gin + Tonic’ … I’m thinking you lads are going to like lighting this lovely flame even more. Gin & Tonic is not only a signature drink of summer but also the newly released 100% pure soy and beeswax candle from the savvy California based PJ Candle Co. No black soot or paraffin wax here to ruin the mood. Cheers.

COOLA Organic Sport Sunscreen SPF 30 Spray

Men seem to dig “spray” sunscreens as opposed to lathering on by hand. COOLA definitely had you in mind when they created an organic sun protection spray that goes on light and easy … but is powerful enough to keep you and your sporting life fully protected from UVA & UVB rays. Take to the park for a run or a day in the surf … Sport SPF 30 has you covered.

OM4Men Bao Balm Lip Therapy

To quote Forbes Magazine’s review of this delicious lip therapy, it “produces strikingly noticeable results”. This little balm has zero color and a shine-free finish, but it doesn’t stop there. Chapped, rough lips affect men as well as women … and bottom line, it’s an unattractive look. This vitamin rich, anti-oxidant packed lip treatment will keep your lips hydrated, moisturized, and protected from harmful environmental elements if that beach smooch is about to happen.

CV Skinlabs Rescue + Relief Spray

As much as we wag our finger, you boys are still going to get sunburnt at least once this summer. This product is an excellent treatment for razor burn, skin irritations and sun exposure. Ingredients like cucumber, valerian and water lily cool, repair and soothe skin whilst the spray application makes it easy to apply and go. Spritz and let the healing begin, it’s truly rescue and relief in a bottle.

OM4Men Oily Skin Travel Set

Sebaceous glands lubricate your skin by producing sebum, which can result in oily skin. Men have larger glands than women, which mean that you secrete more sebum and are more prone to acne and oily skin. Humidity, hot weather, diet, lack of hydration, stress … all these can increase sebum production and hence that less than loved shiny complexion. That shiny complexion can range from a moderate sheen on your skin to an all-out oil spill by day’s end. This convenient travel set has everything your gorgeous mug needs to stay cleansed and balanced … and they are the perfect size for small bathrooms with little storage space, travels abroad or your gym bag. Wherever you may roam, your skin arsenal awaits.
