Taking care of your skin with a good Skincare Routine is an essential element of modern living. Male Skincare Products have evolved from their early conception in the 1960's and have become more than female products repackaged. Male Skincare is increasingly designed and maintained for the male skin itself, recognising the differences in texture, tone and functionality of the male skin and aiming to correct the problems and concerns of males. There are now a wide selection of male specific products, making it easier for you to find your perfect solution to any issue you may have and create that perfect toned, clear and smooth appearance every day.
Cleansers are an essential in a grooming routine. They gently remove some dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other types of pollutants from the skin of the face. Therefore, cleansing prevents conditions such as acne, redness and sensitivity. Cleansers have moved on from the simple soap and unlike a bar soap, cleansers are formulated with a ph that is closer to the skin's natural pH of 5.5 to make sure that irritating bacteria cannot grow as quickly and cleansers do not have thickeners that can clog pores and remove natural oils, helping to preserve the skin and create a natural luminosity to the skin.
Face Scrubs and Exfoliators are an essential part of a grooming routine. As the Male Grooming Market has developed Facial Scrubs have become widely recognised as a key part of maintaining a clear, smooth and polished skin. Facial Scrubs and Exfoliators are designed to remove excess dead skin cells, to reveal younger and healthier looking skin underneath and are beneficial to all skin types, even the most sensitive. Furthermore, regular use of Facial Scrubs and Exfoliators can help prevent spots from occurring by unblocking the pores and allowing them to breathe, killing the bacteria in the pore that causes the blemish and they can, by the same process, help to control the occurrence of ingrowing hairs.
Skincare Toners are specifically designed to cleanse the skin and shrink pores on the face and prepare the skin to receive a moisturiser. Skincare Toners are of benefit to all skin types. They comfort and remove any cleanser residue on a dry/sensitive skin, whilst toners for oilier skins are designed to shrink the pores and prevent bacteria from entering. There are many formulas, some contain alcohol and as such are more astringent on the skin, and some are more gentle in formula, using natural products, for example witch hazel, to achieve the toning effect.
Moisturisers are complex mixtures of chemical agents specially designed to make the external layers of the skin softer and more pliable, by increasing its hydration and preventing the skin from becoming dull from the effects of modern living. Besides imparting or restoring normal levels of hydration to the skin, moisturizers can have several additional intended and unintended effects on their users, including building a barrier against the loss of water through the epidermis, repairing scaly, damaged or dry skin resulting from external environmental aggressions or internal changes (such as in acne or naturally dry skin), repairing or postponing the aging effects on the skin.
As we get older our skin loses collegen and elasticity, making it appear less plump and slacker. The latest Anti-Age Treatments aim to promote the cells to regain their collegen content and start acting like a younger cell, to, in theory, make the skin appear more youthful and radiant. Furthermore, many of the new treatments available on the market aim to premote healthy cell activity and reduce the adverse ageing effects of the environment, sun and modern lifestyle.
Night Creams are a daily nourishing ritual for your skin. Most night creams are prepared as a means of turning back any damage that may have been caused during the day and give the skin a meal of antioxidants and moisture to rejuvenate and restructure. Night Creams tend to have a higher concentration of nourishing ingredients than their daytime counterparts because when your skin sleeps these ingredients can work more effectively, targeting the areas that need attention. Night Creams are also essential for the fight against ageing skin, as the ageing process decreases cell turnover, something that these creams aim to halt.
No time for a facial but want super skin in minutes? Then a Face Mask could be the ideal product to choose. Formulated with different problems in mind, Face Masks are like a mini spa in your bathroom. They rebalance the skin, re-hydrate and remove impurities to give a deeply penetrating solution for your skin. Face Masks are designed to reach more than the top layers of the skin and aim to treat beneath the surface to create a healthier skin without resorting to harsh chemical solutions.
The eye area is one of the most expressive areas of the face but is also one of the most vulnerable to showing its age, due to the fact that there is very little subcutaneous fat around the area and no oil glands at all. Eye Creams are an essential part of anyone's routine who wants to achieve a more youthful and bright looking appearance. There are many eye creams, gels, serums and lotions to choose from on the market these offer a wide range of benefits, smoothing fine lines, minimising dark circles and even reducing puffiness and there are even eye creams specially formulated for dry or sensitive skin, so choosing the right one for your complaint will be easy!

Acne is a serious medical and psychological condition that can be helped by a good skincare routine. There are many degrees of acne but it is caused by a bacteria Propionibacterium acnes, which is present in all skin's but has more of a presence in skin with Acne. This bacteria feeds off sebum, a natural oil produce to lubricate the skin, and multiplies, attracting white blood cells to the follicle and causing inflammation and a build up that blocks the pore, causing a bacteria build up and inflammation. If this bacteria and sebum cannot be released it will cause blemishes and spots and what is commonly termed Acne. Acne skincare treatments aim to cleanse the pore of this bacteria and release anything blocking the pore to allow the skin to work in it's most efficient manner.
