[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]If men’s facial skin were a t-shirt, it would probably come with the following advice: „Better maintenance than the female competitive product. It is thicker, has the stronger knitting pattern and therefore looks longer as new.“ Perfect… (would one think) before reading the small print. „Tends to oily surface and the material shows severe damage after 50 years of use. Please take intensive care of the maintenance instruction.“ [/dropcap]
Fact is, men’s facial skin is about 20% thicker than women`s skin. The collagen and ellastin fibers run in grits instead of parallel to each other. The effect: Men´s skin is stronger and more elastic. And it is less sensitive because of a more active sebum production which unfortunately causes more skin imperfections and an oily complexion.
At first glance what we know about men´s skin doesn´t sound too bad but at the end of the day it is just a matter of time when also men´s skin shows signs of aging. Not quite the look you’re going for, right?
Can you believe that there are still men out there convinced that a tough guy’s grooming routine consists of water and a soap bar only.
Even if you want to stick to your soap bar, don’t ignore the immense variety of men’s skin care products filling the shelves to help fighting successfully skins’s imperfections and signs of aging and make you feel better with your skin.
So fellas, start to care! Dip your fingers in the pots and tubes and fine-tune your grooming routine for immediate results.
Natural aggressors for the skin, negative environmental influences, unhealthy nutrition, different weather conditions and mechanical stress, men’s skin needs a lot of protection and even more moisture.
A moisturizing, vitamin infused shaving gel is key to provide a protection barrier while shaving. It successfully helps to prevent irritations and razor bumps. The BABOR MEN Ultra Comfort Shaving Foam is a wonderful rich creamy shaving foam for the daily shave.
A good after-shave hydrates and soothes the skin will soon become your best friend. Ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Calendula, Hamamelis or Kamille have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect. The BABOR MEN Calming After Shave Fluid contain astringents that tighten the skin, narrow the pores and create a firmer skin barrier.
What a day
Maybe you are not aware, but men not using sunscreen increase their risk of getting sun damage, which may result in redness, irritation, extra blood vessels and skin cancer. So better never leave home without applying a sufficient sunscreen. Take a moisturizer that contains a SPF of 15 or higher for perfect protection.
How to spend the night
Why I need to apply a cream day and night? Moisturizing daily will get you soft, kissable skin- sandpaper-like skin is a turn-off.
Free radicals from for example cigarette smoke, sun light and smog favor premature collagen degradation and wrinkles. A good moisturizer with anti-oxidative ingredients such as vitamin A, C or the co-enzym Q10 decreases the amount of free radicals and support your anti-aging routine.
For dry skin, choose a cream, which is the thickest formulation. For normal skin, reach for a lighter lotion and for oily skin, choose a skin toner or gel.
Deep and deeper
Peelings are a must even for men. The exfoliating components will help to remove dead skin cells form the surface and keep your pores from clogging. They also prevent razor bumps, caused by ingrown hairs and leave the skin super soft and fresh.
Body and beyond
An all in-one-product is a must when it comes to body care. The BABOR MEN Vitalizing Hair & Body Shampoo is uncomplicated and easy to use. It is refreshing and supports skin’s regeneration.
The Invigorating Body Mousse with its great vitalizing scent of mandarine and citric lime is the perfect body moisturizer. Its lightweight texture is quickly absorbed by the skin, leaving it perfectly moistured and soft.
And finally: Don’t forget about your hands and nails. They are the ultimate business card.
