Skin to win: your body needs a grooming game plan

A five-hour round on a sweltering summer day can leave your skin stressed and your body a little gamy. Fortunately, there are plenty of products designed to protect the health and appearance of your skin and get you smelling nice again (for more on sun protection, see page 127). A few tips: (1) Before shaving, shower or apply a hot towel to soften your beard. Then use a pre-shave oil and a shave gel to help the razor glide smoothly. (2) Moisturize after shaving. (3) Streamline: Try products that have dual use, such as a moisturizer with sunblock or a two-in-one shampoo and body wash.
