Apple & Lemon Cleanser / Rose Hip Toner / Gentle Man Moisturizer
Pump a dose of Apple & Lemon Cleanser onto a moistened cotton ball and wipe the face with it, then repeat the routine using the Rose Hip Toner, this time on a dry cotton ball. Both provide an excellent regulation of the sebaceous gland production typically increased in men. Next, spread a pea-size dose of the Gentle Man Moisturizer on your skin using a slightly wet hand. This moisturizer works effectively against water deficiency and deeper wrinkles, and its skin-softening effect provides a satisfying feeling.
Apple & Lemon Cleanser / Rose Hip Toner / Mineral Cleansing / Gentle Man Face Scrub / Ichtyolic Concealer / Gentle Man After Shave Balm / Gentle Man Moisturizer
Start your evening routine in a similar manner: pump a dose of Apple & Lemon Cleanser onto a moistened cotton ball and wipe the face with it, then repeat the routine using the Rose Hip Toner, this time on a dry cotton ball. Once or twice a week use Mineral Cleansing for cleansing: lather it with wet hands, use it to wash your face, then rinse with plenty of water. Use the Gentle Man Face Scrub as a nourishing wrap for the 15-20 minutes it needs to work, then simply wash it off. If you are struggling with acne, apply Ichtyiolic Concealer to the problematic areas to reduce inflammation during the night. Use Gentle Man After Shave Balm for a summertime hydration, and the Gentle Man Moisturizer during autumn and winter – they can both delay the signs of skin aging.
Gentle Man Face Scrub / Cucumber & Parsley Treatment / Gentle Man Moisturizer
You can do a lot to avoid skin problems and premature aging if you decide to spend a little more time on yourself and your skin, at least once a week. Start your weekly routine with exfoliation to help detach dead epithelial cells, then apply a thin layer of Gentle Man Face Scrub on your skin and remove it with rubbing movements when it has dried up (make sure to wipe off the residues with a damp cloth.) Next, time to put up a wrap! If you are unsure about the product to be used, our beauticians will gladly help you choose the right one for your skin type. If you decide to use the Cucumber & Parsley Treatment as a wrap, your skin needs 10-15 minutes to absorb the valuable active ingredients. If it feels dry, wash it off with a cloth or rinse it off while taking a shower. End this routine with the Gentle Man Moisturizer to hydrate your skin.
Mineral Cleansing / Ichtyolic Concealer / Gentle Man After Shave Balm
Shaving is a recurring source of irritation and inflammation, and using Mineral Cleansing offers an excellent solution in avoiding that. Pump a dose of it and apply it to the desired area using your hands or a cotton ball. Please be prepared that due to its natural ingredients, this Soap won’t be as foamy as a regular shaving foam. After you shave and rinse off the residue, feel free to treat the more sensitive parts with Ichtyolic Concealer. This prevents redness, inflammation and soothes your skin if you accidentally cut yourself. Finally, apply some Gentle Man After Shave Balm on the shaved area or the whole face.
How to care for your skin at home easily?
Men’s skin is basically characterized by a thicker epidermis and therefore requires a different kind of care at any age. In men’s case, the sebaceous gland production works on an increased level, so men’s wrinkles take longer to appear, and skin elasticity lasts longer.
On the other side, the thicker epidermis means the skin can break deeper as men age. So maintaining the skin with regular hydration, and also focusing on the regulation of inflammatory processes and excessive sebaceous gland production is recommended from a younger age. Morning and evening facial routines are also essential, as the cleansing and toning products not only remove impurities but also moisturize the skin, restore its pH plus they have a calming and anti-inflammatory functions.
A once a week exfoliation is needed to remove dead epithelial cells and improve skin respiration. Use the wrap that suits your skin type and it will give you exactly what your skin needs: hydration, nourishment and inflammation reduction. For men, Mineral Cleansing is recommended as a key player in general skin care and not only that. When used for shaving, it can help avoid skin irritation, but its abrasive effect works as a charm against ingrown hair.
