Stay Neat and Groomed On the Road with the Rugged & Dapper Travel Set

One of the biggest downfalls of taking a trip abroad or a flight cross country is your inability to groom properly. Nowadays, however, grooming brands have been downsizing their goodies in bottles that are flight-approved, so you can stay cleaned and conditioned in the air and on the road. The Rugged & Dapper Travel Set features the company’s four best-selling products, which are now TSA approved for your convenience.

The set contains Rugged & Dapper’s Age & Damage Defense Facial Moisturizer (2 oz),  Daily Power Scrub Facial Cleanser (2 oz), Dual Purpose Body Wash + Shampoo (1.5 oz) and a Moisture Fix Lip Balm (0.15 oz).

I have been using this kit of products for the last few months and I have definitely noticed an improvement in my skin and hair. Now that I have the option to bring these companions on the road, it only makes the experience that much sweeter.

First off, the Daily Power Scrub Facial Cleanser is an energizing toner and exfoliator that rids your pores of gunk, grime, and oils on both the surface level and underneath. Contrary to many facial scrubs, Rugged & Dapper’s cleanser is light enough to be used every day, day and night, because it doesn’t strip the moisture from your skin. Instead, it pours in vital botanicals and minerals like lavender, tea tree oil, and jojoba beads that regenerate your skin and reduce the appearance of pores.

The Age & Defense Facial Moisturizer is the perfect follow-up, acting as both a hydrating moisturizer and soothing aftershave lotion. Packed with effective nutrient-rich ingredients, such as aloe vera, jojoba oil, and vitamin B5, among others, this creamy substance has a great viscosity that’s easy to apply and dries quickly. The peptides provide a nice boost in collagen and elastin production, too, which aids in the repair and prevention of wrinkles in order to keep your face looking dapper every day.

Now on to the 2-in-1 punch Body Wash and Shampoo. This dual-purpose formula is teeming with refreshing ingredients such as olive, borage, oregano, tea tree, and rosehip oils that are strong enough to tackle dirtiness from your scalp to your toes. It also puts off a pleasing, masculine scent that is apparent all day long. Unfortunately, there isn’t the Hydration Remedy Conditioner for you to follow with, but you can say goodbye to those cheap hotel shampoos and bring your favorite cleaning essentials and scents with you on the go.

Last but not least, Rugged & Dapper has an amazing Moisture Fix Lip Balm that will keep your lips feeling refreshed. It can be difficult to keep your lips soft and moist when on the road because of changing climates and altitudes, but this lip balm provides fast-acting relief for dry or chapped lips and a pleasant minty finish.

The Rugged & Dapper Travel Set is set to release August 10 and will be available for just $19.95 on the brand’s website.

Does beard growth oil work? What you should know

Growing the perfect beard is a lifelong quest for some, and though there are plenty of tips to help you grow a beard, sometimes you can benefit from a little outside intervention. You might have seen adverts for beard growth oil and wondered if that would help you grow a thicker and more lustrous beard, along with various other oils for softening or brushes and other tools to help maintain your skin.

There's a lot of options when it comes to the world of facial hair grooming, because for your beard to look full and well groomed, you need to not only trim it to the right shape but also make sure that both the hair and the skin of your face are well looked after and in good condition. You might also just need to be patient, as it can take some time for facial hair to grow in to the length that you want. The basic advice for growing in a beard that looks great are to give it time and make sure you're taking care of your health -- like getting enough sleep, eating a health diet, and taking exercise. But we all know we're supposed to do those things anyway, and there are some products that can help give your beard a nudge along the way.

How often should you change your razor blades?

It's a hassle and an annoyance, but when it comes to your daily shaving ritual something that you absolutely don't want to skip is changing out your razor blade. Trying to shave with a dull razor is bad for your skin and can cause razor bumps, plus creating a higher likelihood of problems like infections, and it will do a poor job of removing hair, resulting in a patchy shave. If you're not up for trying out a straight razor, then you'll need to get into the habit of regularly swapping out the replaceable blades on your razor or using fresh disposable razors instead. Knowing when to swap out your old blades for new ones will help keep your skin happy and your face looking its best, so our guide can help you work out how often you need to change your razor blades.

How often you should change your razor blades
According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, you should change your razor blades or throw away disposable razors after every five to seven shaves. High-quality razor blades should last five to seven shaves if you take care of them properly and keep them clean. However, cheaper disposable razors may wear out sooner.
Signs it’s time to change your razor blades include skin irritation after shaving, a less close shave, patchy areas or spots missed, skin that still feels rough after, dullness of the blades, feeling hairs are getting pulled instead of cut, and excessive friction of the blades across your skin that it feels like you have to drag it over your skin.
Moreover, a razor that has an accumulation of gunk that can’t be rinsed away should be immediately discarded, as this causes nicks and infections by dragging unevenly across your skin and introducing harbored bacteria into your pores.
