Men’s Skin Regimens Are Evolving

Standard

The days of the typical dove soap bar being used are gone for good. Guys like myself used to use body soap bars and thought it was okay for my skin. I’ll be the first to say that men’s skin regimens have evolved, and unfortunately, our significant others may not be too happy about that for one main reason.

As Skin Care Evolves So Do Men’s Skin Regimens

It started with our spouses and girlfriends buying products to help perfect their complexion. When they saw flaws in our skin, they pointed them out and even offered us to use their products. Well, that quickly evolved into the quick disappearance of their products.

According to an article written in The Star, there has been some chatter on the disappearance of women’s skin care products and 73 percent of those involved said that they were very familiar with the issue. The thievery was no laughing matter for some of the women.

I can attest to this myself. Before I established a real skin care regimen, I would ask my wife for suggestions when I saw issues and she’d hand me her products. She no sooner realized that her product stock was diminishing at an incredible rate and it soon became a real issue. That’s when I knew it was time for me to get on my own regimen and really invest time and money in my skin. Enough about me, let me get back to the main discussion…

The upgrades in the male grooming this past year has caused many to drop those nasty soap bars and basic cleansers that they picked up at the local Walmart. They are now shopping online and are searching for products that contain ingredients which can provide the best results for their skin.

Men’s skin is completely different from women and they often require something that can combat their oily skin and smaller pores. I’ve got a current regimen that I’ll share with you. I typically shower first thing but I should mention that I never wash my face in the shower. I then use a cleanser made for men and I shave my face. Once my face has been cleansed and I’m all shaved, I then apply a serum to my face. I personally require a serum that works extra hard on the bags and circles under my eyes.

The typical men’s skin regimens at night can be a little different than the regimen in the morning. I too have a different current regimen at night, which incorporates the use of another serum and a night cream. I’m just scratching the surface here though and giving you a general overview. If I get into the specifics I’ll be here for days.

For some people that think my approach is foolish and that breaking into your girlfriend or wife’s skin products is okay, I’m here to tell you it’s definitely not. You have to remember that a skin care regimen and the use of skin products is somewhat similar to the use of dietary supplements. You wouldn’t want to use some fat burner or protein that’s meant for women would you? Of course not! Just remember that what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body.

If you’re serious about keeping your skin healthy, invest in a few products that a high-quality men’s skin care line produces. Either that or you’re going to have to deal with the wrath of a really mad wife or girlfriend. It’s not worth having to deal with that in my opinion!

Men’s Skin Care Line Charles And Lee Is Coming Soon

Standard

I’ll be the first to admit that I believe in using products for what they are made to be used for. Turns out there’s a new men’s line that has the same belief and it’s called Charles and Lee, also known as Charles + Lee. They are hitting the men’s skin care market soon and they’re more than prepared to deliver, so it seems.

Charles And Lee Men’s Brand Launched

The Charles + Lee product line is not for the individual that likes to use an all in one solution. Instead, it seems like the pride themselves in having products that do specifically what they should and they should be used accordingly.

The brand is one of the latest launches in the organic skin care for men market with natural ingredients such as goats milk, vitamin A, shea butter and even goji berry. These products also come with a clean sleek looking package and for those that are trying their best to avoid any busy or colorful products in the shower then this might be a decent fit. It’s a modern organic loving man’s product line that might be your answer to the winter skin blues.

Charles + Lee has a face wash, hand cream, body wash and a moisturizer that will all be available come March 1st. Until then, you’ll have to stalk their Instagram page for more insight.

Lastly, I should add that I personally do not use all these types of products and you may or may not need to use the entire line. They don’t have any products to use on your under eyes yet, but I still am personally interested in trying out some of the products. My personal experience tells me that it’s best to only introduce one or two new products into your skin care regimen at a time. If you’re taking any other approach, then it’s rather difficult to determine what’s actually working for you. Instead, introduce each slowly and measure your results. They may actually surprise you quite a bit.
