Fellas, spring has sprung, and it’s time to get ready for the summer. They say summer bodies are made in the winter, but Fashion Reverie says it’s always the right time to take care of yourself. Due to the temporary business closings and social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have realized that a lot of things we did in person can actually be done virtually, or at home. Office meetings have turned to video conferences. Grocery shopping has turned to an array of grocery and meal delivery services. And spa visits have turned into at-home staycation-style treatments.

Fashion Reverie has compiled a list of spa-worthy products you can use at home to get your hair, face, and skin glowing like never before. And as an added bonus, most of these products are from small businesses, so you’re helping budding entrepreneurs. This way, treating yourself is the gift that keeps on giving.

Comprised of detoxifying clays, superfoods and pure plant botanicals, this mask clears complexion, minimizes the appearance of pores, brightens and softens skin, increases cell turnover, and promotes healthy, glowing skin. The ingredients include honey (a natural antioxidant and anti-aging agent), coconut milk (prevents wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots), and numerous vitamins and minerals to hydrate, soothe skin irritations, increase collagen production and cell rejuvenation, heal blemishes and acne scars, and reduce hyperpigmentation. This product is good for all skin types from dry to oily because it clarifies and soothes without leaving the skin dry or raw.

Aaron Wallace 3-Step Haircare System ($50)

The hair on the top of your head is just as important as the hair on your face. The Aaron Wallace 3-step haircare system expertly attends to all of your follicles. Infused with mango butter and black seed oil, their completely natural formulations gently cleanse, strengthen and moisturize to combat early receding hair and patches in the beard. They focus on maximum hydration and nutrition to penetrate thick hair and nourish from the tip to the root, resulting in healthier, more supple head and beard hair.

Aba Love Apothecary ($38)

Cleansing your hair is only one step. You then need to follow-up and keep it, and the skin underneath moisturized. This beard oil calms skin with essential oils including organic vetiver and lavender blended in organic goldenseed jojoba oil. Scented with a bright woodsy aroma with a pinch of spiced floral musk, it won’t clog your pores and can be used as a facial serum, beard oil and a shaving oil.

Oui The People Ingrown Relief Toner ($25)

This is not your typical facial toner. It features a simplified, fragrance-free formula of witch hazel, vegetable glycerin, and exfoliating gluconolactone, a poly-hydroxy acid (or PHA). Oui The People call this toner the “shy sister” to more powerful acids, which usually fall under the alpha-hydroxy acid and beta-hydroxy acid umbrellas. The PHA works to slough away the skin cell buildup that can cause ingrown hairs. This easier-going exfoliation uses the fatty acids and antioxidants to leave your skin with a smoother, brighter, more even tone.

Chloe and Chad Lemongrass Body Wash ($28)

This body wash is simple and straight to the point. It is an invigorating body wash that will leave your skin moisturized without all the extra stuff that other body washes contain Made from all natural, vegan ingredients, their entire skincare line is being formulated in small batches to ensure you receive the freshest and most effective formulations. And they use only premium essential oils in their skincare, never fragrance oils.

Gilded Body Polish Skin Brightening Polish ($45)

This body scrub—excuse me—body polish screams decadence! Combining the velvety, mineral rich “champagne” of salts, French gray sea salt & Fleur De Sel de Guerande, with moisturizing and antioxidant-rich oils and butters, creates the ultimate body buffing experience.  It exfoliates dull surface cells for smooth, radiant skin, polishes with mineral-rich salt crystals, and the natural citric acid refines and brightens. It truly is luxury in a jar.

 Buttah by Dorion Renaud CocoShea Cream ($19)

It’s like butter, baby! This cocoa and shea butter concoction was created to moisturize, protect, and soothe. This lightweight moisturizing cream replenishes dry skin, locks in moisture, and improves the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. The infusion of hyaluronic acid and vitamin E into the African rich butters manifest a super-charged formula helps restore your complexion’s healthy glow for a more youthful appearance.

Naturally London Exhale Detoxifying Foot Soak with Moringa Oil ($20)

You must take of yourself from the roots of your hair to the tips of your toes. The feet are often forgotten when one thinks about relaxation, but they are an essential part of your overall health and tranquility. Refresh and revive in this antioxidant-rich foot soak that draws out impurities, detoxifies and exfoliates your feet. Dead Sea salt and chlorella (algae extract) detoxify your feet from heavy metals and toxins while the moringa oil cleanses and moisturizes.

Southern Hospitality Heel-to-Toe Gift Set ($15)

There are steps to keeping your feet in tip top form. You have to clean and moisturize, but sometimes you have to also treat and heal your feet. This set of products from Southern Hospitality include a balm to revitalize your rough, calloused, and cracked heels—it’s also good on elbows, knees, and knuckles—and a salve to hydrate your cracked cuticles. We can’t promise that you’ll become a foot model afterward, but you’ll definitely be much better than where you started off.
