In celebration of Father’s Day and the males in our lives, our co-founder Jacqueline Johnston has shared some simple skincare tips just for men!
Use a gentle facial cleanser
Are you guilty of washing your face with body wash? We know from our spa & clinic visitors that many of you are treating the skin on your face the same as your body. However, skin is far more sensitive on our face and requires specially designed products. Try an appropriate gentle facial cleanser that works with men’s facial hair. It’s important to make washing your face a part of your daily routine.
As most men shave almost every day, we’d recommend trying Hunter Lab’s Cleansing Shave Foam, which helps cleanse your skin while preparing and softening facial hair to protect the face.
Exfoliate every few days
Men’s skin tends to be thicker and produces more oil than female skin. It’s also prone to ingrown hairs due to shaving, meaning it needs a regular exfoliating regime to keep it clean, healthy and blemish free. Exfoliating regularly can assist facial hair growth in the correct way and minimise any ingrown hairs.
We know most men prefer their skincare routine to be as simple as possible and we recommend Hunter Lab’s Cleansing Facial Scrub as good starting point. A 2-in-1 cleanser and exfoliator, the facial scrub is quick and easy to use in the shower.
Protect with a daily moisturiser and SPF
Statistically, more men work outside than women and are prone to sun exposure on the tops of their heads and ears. To protect your skin, an SPF should be applied daily. OCosmedics Mineral Pro SPF30+ is a non-greasy, physical broad-spectrum SPF and can be easily applied every day to protect you from the sun’s harsh rays.
You can also try Hunter Lab’s Peptide Anti-Ageing Elixir, which is a concentrated and readily absorbed serum that delivers maximum nutrient nourishment. As the name mentions, it also helps prevents the physical signs of ageing.
Try a cleansing mask when possible
If you want to take extra special care of your skin, Hunter Lab offers a Charcoal Mask, a deep cleansing treatment to hydrate, soothe and nourish skin. The mask deep cleanses the skin and pores and removes impurities to prevent build up and leave your skin smooth.
For the ultimate introduction to skincare at home, there’s always Hunter Lab’s World’s Greatest Dad kit, which includes the Cleansing Shave Foam and Peptide Anti-Ageing Elixir.
