Skincare. It’s a topic that will see guys squirm simply due to the unknown. Face wash? Toner? Moisturiser? How do I use it? You may even be reading this and are thinking of turning away but we implore you to continue, as we’ve teamed up with arguably the best skincare company in the business, La Mer, to break down the barriers of men’s skincare.
All the more, we’ll discuss the best ways to adopt a skincare regime that will see you looking and feeling your best, every day of the week.
It all starts with a good cleanser. Washing your face, morning and night, should go a lot further than a simple splash of water to the face. If you think about it, the skin builds up with dirt and city grime each and every day, so washing away these impurities is vital to avoiding breakouts, clogged pores, blackheads and more.
The Cleansing Foam by La Mer is a gentle cleansing foam that purifies and calms delicate skin, and also helps fight excess oil build-up, common in guys. It does so by drawing out impurities and excess oil without disrupting the skin’s moisture barrier. It’s super light and a little goes a long way.
Not only will your skin feel smooth and soft after each wash, but it smells great, too (your partner can thank us later, gents). Use twice, daily for optimal results.
The Soothing Serum
Whether you’re stuck in an office or constantly on the move, the chances of your skin getting irritated one way or another is inevitable. Soreness? Redness? Inflammation? It’s all related to the elements our skin face on the daily!
To combat these often frustrating reactions to your skin, La Mer developed The Concentrate – a much-loved, kelp-inspired design with the same formula found in all La Mer products; Miracle Broth!
The Concentrate is easy to apply; just massage a small amount onto your skin at least twice daily or as needed, post-cleansing.
The Eye Cream
Waking up to tired, dark, puffy eyes? It’s a common occurrence for a lot of men. But there is a way to diminish dark circles and puffiness, using The Eye Concentrate by La Mer.
This concentrated eye cream may be small but it offers a big support where the impact matters most. The Eye Concentrate hydrates and softens the look of lines for a smooth, healthy appearance.
Twice daily, add a small amount of cream to the applicator and gently massage onto the eye area for increased micro-circulation.
To complete your skincare regime, finish with an application of moisturiser, morning and night. One of the most pivotal aspects of caring for your skin, the right moisturiser will not only help maintain balanced skin, but it will deliver renewing moisture that can help aid dry (or oily) skin types.
The Moisturising Matte Lotion by La Mer is suitable for men’s skin and targets, specifically, excess oil build-up. It’s fast-absorbing and thanks to Miracle Broth – the legendary healing elixir that is the crux of the La Mer brand – it infuses your skin with sea-sourced renewing energies.
Use this moisturiser by pumping a small amount to fingertips and pressing gently into cleansed skin, morning and night.
