Scrub up for the biggest day of your life with these skin-loving – and planet-friendly – grooming essentials

Naked Necessities
Launched in 2018 with the aim of driving change for sustainability through business, Exeter-based Naked Necessities' vegan-friendly products are now stocked in over 80 zero waste stores and sustainable fashion outlets across the UK.

Having lived in the Indian Ocean, founder James Mugridge witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of waste plastics to marine life and vowed to make a sustainable difference 'shaving the planet one epic razor at a time. We believe it is possible to provide quality shaving products without compromising the environment,' he says. 'Over 2 billion plastic razors are thrown away every year. The Naked Necessities safety razor eliminates plastic from entering landfill, and ultimately avoids polluting our oceans.'

By eradicating plastic from their supply chain and ensuring their manufacturers meet the highest ethical and environmental standards, customers are assured quality, environmentally sound products. Lather up with their divine shaving soap (packed with the nourishing likes of lavender, orange, clay extracts and aloe vera while being paraben, palm oil and cruelty-free) before enjoying a supremely smooth and nick-free shave with their traditional safety razor.

Trevarno for Men
Recognising modern man's need for specialised skincare, Organic Trevarno's range is produced with essential oils alongside natural oils and butters chosen for their masculine appeal, with properties to ensure your skin maintains a healthy and well balanced feel.

Slap on some of their aftershave oil containing 'skin-saver' jojoba oil blended with cypress, bergamot, palmarosa and vetiver, while bearded grooms will delight in their sandalwood and bergamot beard balm, whose heady combination of jojoba oil, sesame with carrot oil, and camomile with olive oil provides a gentle, nourishing daily treatment.

Alternatively, moisturise your facial mane into stroke-worthy condition courtesy of their enriching beard oil while applying their facial moisturiser on a daily basis to prime your complexion well ahead of W-day ' all in the knowledge that Trevarno's formal organic certification ensures ethical and sustainable products (in recyclable glass jars and bottles) that are as pure, natural and ecologically responsible as possible.





Beyond Organic Skincare
Beyond Organic's range of award-winning 100% organic, natural and vegan skincare guarantees 'purity with performance' as it expertly primes your complexion ahead of W-day.

Start your blemish-banishing regime with their purifying cleanser, which contains witch hazel, tea tree and cucumber to gently remove impurities, while their certified organic gentle facial exfoliator is designed to detoxify and deeply cleanse as it helps to re-establish a radiant glow. For the all-important moisturising phase, opt for the aptly named, miracle worker face cream, which tackles a range of issues such as scars, redness, wrinkles and burns with its powerful host of antioxidant, antiseptic and nourishing properties.

Complete your pre-wedding routine with the ultra radiance serum, which hydrates skin for up to eight hours as it works its age-defying wonders by preventing moisture loss and reducing clogged pores. Simply apply a small amount of the highly concentrated serum before bed and allow it to transform your skin (and sleep) as you drift off to the divinely relaxing scent.
