Ben Gorham, founder of beauty brand Byredo

“The grooming staple I’m never without is a cream my wife found called Cetaphil. It’s an all-purpose moisturising lotion and a daily ritual. I use it on my face, body and hands every time I shower. My wife is an aesthetician; she always recommends regimens I have a hard time following, but this one is straightforward.” £8.99 for 236ml; boots.com

Gorham’s daily skincare ritual includes Cetaphil (£8.99 for 236ml, boots.com)

Juan Santa Cruz, restauranteur

“La Roche-Posay moisturiser with SPF – nothing complicated. And I create my own scent by mixing essential oils such as vetiver, frankincense and lavender, which I buy online; I have no preferred brand – I just add a bit of this and a bit of that.”
