Men really should moisturise

Gone are the days when skin care is just for women. Mens skin care has come a long way from the days of soap and water.Image

Now days, there are numerous products specially designed to meet the needs of the male skin.  His skin care routine should not be overwhelming but a simple 3-step routine that is easy to follow.

1- Cleanse

Stop, don’t reach for the soap…  Soap will only dry your skin out and produce more oil.  Typically men produce more oil and have larger pores due to higher levels of testosterone than women.  Cleansing every day will clear away the excess oil and daily grime without drying your skin; it will also stop that oil from clogging your pores, which can lead to breakouts. 

Our product recommendation:

AHAVA Exfoliating Cleansing Gel: Multi-purpose cleansing, beard softener and blemish treatment product.

Dermalogica Clean Bar: Soap free, convenient bar removes impurities and surface oil.

Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash: Acne and breakout-prone skin.

2- Exfoliate

Exfoliation, but I have already cleansed….  Cleansing washes away surface oil and dirt.  Where as an exfoliator gets deep down into your pores to remove that build up of impurities and oil. To be used once or twice a week, exfoliation also softens the beard for a closer shave and helps prevent ingrown hairs.

Our product recommendation:

AHAVA Exfoliating Cleansing Gel: Multi-purpose: cleansing, beard softener and blemish treatment product.

Dermalogica Mens Daily Clean Scrub: use prior to shaving to clean and exfoliate the skin.

3- Moisturise

For most of you, skin care starts and finishes with soap and shaving foam. A light moisturiser can solve everything; it can replenish the moisture lost from showering and shaving and beat dryness, leaving a healthy, great looking skin.  Better still a moisturiser with a SPF will provide hydration and protection against the sun, helping to prevent the formation of skin cancers.
