Men are becoming increasingly more and more aware of their skincare needs. While shaving has been an issue for most of their lives, men neglect the important part of hydrating and nourishing the skin to keep them looking their very best.
No one wants to have dry, itchy or flaky skin – men included! To prevent from looking like the victim of a bad sunburn it’s important for all people to feed and hydrate the epidermis, just like the rest of the body.
Men with Dry Skin
Problem: Dry skin is a common affliction since shaving can over-exfoliate the skin and leave it susceptible to drying out, especially in dry environments (like air conditioning!) and when using harsh soaps or cleansers. Dry skin identifies as rough, dry, red patches on the skin, and these patches are often itchy. As skin dryness becomes more severe, cracks and fissures may evolve leading to breakouts.
Solution: Use a light-weight feeling moisturizer to keep the skin nourished, protected and soft. A moisturizer like Skinfood Ultra Vital, is ideal for men who want to apply a light layer without a heavy, greasy feeling. It absorbs super fast and protects the skin all day!
50 is the new 40
Problem: Aging skin. No one wants to look older than they are, in fact I think we all secretly cheer inside every time we get carded for our drinks. Aging skin is caused by a lot of factors, both internal and external. While we may not be able to combat the effects of genetics we can certainly help prevent premature signs of aging with effective topical products.
Solution: Renaissance Age Serum. Silky, light-weight and packed with Proline Amino Acids, this cult favorite product, not only helps to maintain our collagen but also helps to fight free-radicals that cause damage on the skin from UVA/UVB rays. Two for One, Win-Win.
Eyes tell a story
Problem: Men typically lose oils and natural moisture in the their skin 8-10 years before women do, resulting in those pesky fine lines around the eyes. This area of the skin is more delicate then the rest because it has less tissue to protect it. Every time you squint, smile or laugh, you also naturally breakdown some of the collagen and elastin in the skin which leads to sagging skin, or wrinkles.
Solutions: Start using a cream specially for the eye areas in your mid-20’s. Use a product that will add hydration without being heavy or oily and apply it twice a day! Another solution – wear sunglasses every time you go outside!
Deodorant for the Modern Man
Problem: Deodorant that breaks down and doesn’t last all day or has harsh chemicals that studies are showing may have relevancy to certain cancers and health concerns.
Solution: Deo Cream Deodorant is a naturally formulated perspiration blocker that not only helps to limit gross perspiration but also absorbs odor to maintain a fresh and clean scent – all day long! Made with Farnesol, a natural, organic anti-bacterial, it cannot be dissolved in water, but mixes readily with oils.
