We often categorise skin care as a beauty regime specifically for women but guess what? Men have skin too and just like exercise and eating healthy, we think skincare should be an integral part of everyone's health and wellness routine, no matter what gender.
A simple three-step; cleanse, repair and replenish ritual can do wonders for the appearance of your skin, repairing damage, protecting you from external toxins and preventing you from looking older than you really are.
How does your skin work to protect you?
Your skin is the barrier between you and the outside world, you could say it’s your body's first line of defence. It keeps bacteria and toxins from things such as chemicals, cigarette smoke and air pollution from entering our system as well as harmful UV rays.
How long does a skincare routine take?
Your skincare routine doesn’t have to be overly convoluted. While some may imagine hundreds of expensive products when they think of skincare, a good routine can easily be achieved in under 10 minutes with three simple products. Hey, you could probably do it in under 5 minutes if you’re really efficient.
Do men need different skincare to women?
No, not really. Although there is a difference in hormone production which can make men’s skin slightly different, fundamentally it is the same. You will find that most of the ingredients in male-specific and female-specific skincare products are identical, they are just cased in hyper-gender specific packaging for marketing reasons.
What should men be looking for in skincare?
While gender isn’t important, your skin type is. Whether your skin is normal, oily, dry or a combination should be considered when choosing a skincare routine that is right for you. Second to this, look out for ingredients. Here at JAR we think high quality, plant-derived ingredients are the best when it comes to replenishing the skin with antioxidants, repairing oxidative stress.
