THIS ONE’S FOR YOU, GENTLEMEN! (Ladies learn some tips for your man in case he is not reading this!)
Have you noticed more and more men’s skin care products popping up on the market? That’s because there is a heightened interest from men. Some men who used to wash their face with bar soap are realizing that there are better ways to take care of their skin. Below are a few products men swear by. Derived from plant and seed extracts, these luxe products moisturize, reduce redness, and fight wrinkles-without leaving you feeling greasy. By the way, info on this sexy razor is at the bottom of this story.
GROOMING:Bar soap or hand soap should never be used on your face! The ingredients inside are way too harsh for your skin and will cause you to break out. Even though men have oilier skin than women, it doesn’t mean you should be drying it out. Instead opt for a purifying and moisturizing cleanser. I recommend using Lierac.
This non-drying, soap-free cleanser contains exfoliating micro-particles and one percent Hydroxy acids to help gently eliminate roughness, pore clogging impurities, while allowing for an easier shave. Added benefit? It works to prevent and treat ingrown hairs. What’s not to love? Or, try Baxter of California.
This refreshing and rejuvenating face scrub is must have for a man. A perfect pick me up for the face, removing impurities and dead skin cells while stimulating skin renewal.
SHAVING: Shaving itself is a process of exfoliation. It helps to remove the buildup of dead skin cells on the outer layer. However, because men have coarse and think hair, they have to shave often, which can also lead to irritation and ingrown hairs. Did you know? The fastest growing hair on a man’s body is his chin/beard hair. If he never shaved, his beard could grow close to 30 feet in his lifetime. Most men use shaving foam or cream to remove facial hair but lately, oil has become a hot new alternative. Try Dermalogica below for an ultra-smooth shave.
TREATING: Please do not forget to moisturize your skin-it will keep it hydrated, prevent irritation, and allow for smoother shave. When skin aging is in question, men have the benefit. Your skin is thicker and firmer than women’s because your higher testosterone levels provide more collagen and elasticity. So that means the signs of aging (wrinkles and fine lines) appear later for you than for women. So, do not wait too long, try preventative measures and start treating your skin before first signs of aging appear on your face. Try these popular face oils below: Olie Biologique 005 is radiance-boosting and rejuvenating oil. This blend of 8 organic plant botanicals and floral extracts provides all-natural skin quenching properties with lightweight, healing potency. Anti-oxidants, fatty acids and naturally occurring retinoic acid preserve elasticity, plump lines and improve firmness. Absorbs completely to leave a silky, non-greasy finish.
