When we hear terms ‘skincare’ and ‘skincare regime’, we automatically associate them with topics concerning women. But what about men? They have skin too along with a number of skin issues that need to be addressed. So why then is it a topic that’s not discussed often enough? It’s safe to say that the beauty and skincare industry has definitely seen huge changes and has now begun catering to the skincare needs of men beyond just the basics of facial hair and grooming.
So, why is it important for men to have a skincare regime!
The first and most important thing to remember is that skincare matters – even if you’re a man. No matter the age, all men can benefit from developing and following a daily skincare regime to help keep their skin looking fresher and younger for longer. Even if you cover just the basics of cleansing and moisturising daily, you will notice a significant improvement in the condition of your skin.
While it may be easy and convenient to reach out for that bottle of cleanser or jar of moisturiser that belongs to either your wife, girlfriend or sister, we recommend that you don’t. Why? Because the texture and properties of the skin vary drastically between men and women. Men’s skin tends to be much thicker with more oil glands than the skin of a woman.
ISUN have developed 3 skincare products specifically formulated for a man's needs. We recommend the following simple 3-step daily skincare regime to help maintain a youthful and healthy balanced skin:
Step 1 – Cleanse your skin with The Gentleman’s Shave Gelé, a refreshing pH balanced cleanser that can be used as a cleanser for the face, or as an all-over face and body wash. Perfect as a shaving cream too.
Step 2 – Soothe and hydrate your skin with The Gentleman’s After Shave, rich in aloe vera and hyaluronic acid, to reduce skin irritation caused by shaving and to keep your skin stay hydrated, supple and smooth.
Step 3 – Moisturise with The Gentleman’s Moisturiser, which is rich in Buriti fruit oil that acts as a natural UV protector, making this moisturiser ideal for everyday use to help visibly minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking healthy and nourished.
Looking after the skin under the eyes is equally important as the under-eye area is usually where the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles tend to appear. Eye creams are formulated to treat the thin, delicate skin under the eyes. So make sure you add our Revive Eye Gel to your daily regime.
Another important step in any skincare regime is exfoliation, and this important step is not just for women. Men need to exfoliate their skin too, to help prevent blocked pores, breakouts and to remove dead skin cells that build upon the skin’s surface.
As a general rule of thumb, factor in the ‘two-a-day’ mantra into your skincare regime. What this means is that you need to follow your skincare regime twice daily – once in the morning and once before bed to cleanse away all the dirt, grime and debris accumulated on your skin during the course of the day and help your skin repair itself whilst you sleep.
ISUN’s award-winning ‘The Gentleman’s Skincare’ range is formulated to address the specific skincare needs of men in three simple steps. Each product is designed to promote healthy skin and minimise the signs of ageing. And if you’re looking to take your skincare regime to the next level, then you can relax and be pampered with ISUN’s signature spa treatments for men at The Floating Spa situated at the beautiful Monkey Island Estate, Bray or The Gainsborough Bath Spa UK.
