The Golfer (Cause of stress: The merciless sun)

Consider a shampoo-soap hybrid as the grooming equivalent of a sports drink. As it removes residue, it also reintroduces moisture to parched hair and skin. Wella Professionals Sun Hair and Body Shampoo (P540)

While your sunscreen protects against UV rays, the 10 antioxidants in a summer-friendly gel moisturizer help neutralize environmental damage. Lab Series Age Rescue + Water-Charged Gel Cream

The spray format of a light-finish sunscreen lets you reapply quickly in between swings. Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF 50+ Spray (P2,078), Watsons

The Runner (Cause of stress: Slow things)

Rub a tiny circle of cream onto your underarms and expect nothing—no smell, no stink, no musk, nothing. Which is what you want during your run and beyond. Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Antiperspirant and Deodorant Cream, Greenbelt 502

Thanks to maca root, the super food that boosts vitality, not only do you get a clean mug, you also get skin that looks not dead. The Body Shop For Men Maca Root Face Wash (P695), Greenbelt 4

This emollient formula fights aging on two fronts: The built-in SPF sunscreen shields against sun damage, while antioxidants from blue algae extract improve the appearance of skin. Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer


The Fighter (Cause of stress: A lack of gentle lovin’)

Polish away rough edges with an emollient balm that relieves and protects chapped lips. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm

This is like a therapist in a tub: Camphor, cajuput, and clove soothe overworked muscles, while peppermint and eucalyptus provide a cooling sensation. Apply anywhere you’re sore. Badger Sore Muscle Rub Cooling Blend, Rustan’s Makati

Bergamot and cedarwood collide to capture the mood of summer days. Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Summer 2016


The Lifter (Cause of stress: Germs. They’re everywhere.)

Hands that come in contact with heavy metals receive much abuse. A rich lotion that helps skin absorb water from the air gives it love. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, Greenbelt 5

Here are two reasons to put mud on your face: It draws out dirt and, when formulated with salicylic acid, fights acne-causing bacteria. Nivea Men Anti-Acne Brightening Mud Serum Foam

When hitting the showers, consider a soap-free gel that, aside from clearing away grime, provides a pleasant spicy-sweet smell. Skip the perfume. The Body Shop Activist Shower Gel (P795), Greenbelt 4

The Baller (Cause of stress: Squeezing in a game before work. Sleepy.)

Zinc fights microbes and soothes skin, while caffeine and menthol provide a full-body high. Wake up! Kiehl’s Body Fuel All-In-One Energizing Wash, Greenbelt 5

Like a wave of energy, this hits you with a burst of lemon. Ermenegildo Zegna Z Zegna Energy 

As you move (dribble, run, shoot), friction causes capsules to burst and release immediate freshness. Rexona Men Ice Cool Aerosol
