It is a very outdated myth that men don’t need to take care of their skin.
In general, men’s skin tends to be oilier and thicker and ages later in life, the downside is that lines tend to be more deeply edged.
Most men really don’t like to hassle, but with gentle persuasion and education you can help your man look his best with minimal fuss. And if you are a man reading this, then let us show you how simple it is to take care of your skin!
Organic ingredients are grown without harmful synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. Organic is simply safer for us and Mother Earth. Remember that whatever you put on your skin is absorbed into your body.

Other Important Lifestyle Tips
Always Wear SPF
Sun exposure is the number one cause of premature aging. Limit your sun exposure and always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30 to block out harmful UVA and UVB rays. Wear sunscreen 365 days a year, as you can even damage your skin on a cloudy day.
Eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, they are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Go slow on sugar, too much can cause inflammation resulting in breakouts. Eat foods rich in omega 3 and 6.
Master Your Shave
Shave in the direction that feels smooth,usually in a downwards motion, using a good quality razor. If you have sensitive skin use a shaving gel that contains aloe. For a special tip, try our cleanser as a shaving gel, as it contains aloe and chamomile to soothe and prevent ingrowns.
Get Enough Sleep
During sleep the skin repairs itself, forming collagen which is essential for healthy hydrated skin.
Control Your Stress
Stress raises cortisol levels and hormones such as testosterone, which stimulates oil production causing breakouts.
Smoking stresses the skin causing premature aging.
Don’t Neglect Your Eyes
The areas around the eyes are very sensitive and prone to dryness. Grab a hydrating cream and dab it around and under your eyes morning and night.
Lastly, don’t forget those lips! Use a lip balm with a SPF of at least 15.
We hope these tips make it that much easier for you to take care of your skin, and show you that it doesn’t have to be a complicated process!
