UNDERSTANDING YOUR SKIN

A Man's Guide to Skin Health

Great skin health doesn’t need to be complicated. Fact.

Advanced products and treatments are much like working out with a personal trainer and will help your skin reach peak health alongside providing you with tips, tricks and a small skincare arsenal that packs a punch at home. 

We promise that with a little consistency it will make such a difference to your skin that you’ll wonder why you haven’t been doing it all along.

Why is skincare important?

Did you know that due to testosterone levels men produce more oil than women? Your skin is more likely to be the perfect surface for debris, skin and pollution to stick to! Consequently, men are more susceptible to deep, large blackheads making the skin look dull and the tone uneven.

It also makes the skin more prone to attracting skin-damaging environmental pollutants. So, it’s no surprise that a thorough cleanse and the right products go a long way towards keeping breakouts at bay.

Did you also know that men also have thicker skin, and this can lead to an uneven texture? It is important to ensure dead skin cells are regularly removed and are not covering hair follicles causing breakouts or irritation. The correct treatments and home routine will provide your skin with optimum nutrition and assist natural processes such as cell turnover so you’re always putting your best face forward.

So, whether you’re just dipping your toe into the pool of skincare, or you’re already a skincare-loving guy, here’s our ultimate guide to great skin health for men.
