Using your girlfriend’s products does not make for an efficient skincare regime

Admit it, many of you men have sneakily (or perhaps even brazenly!) had a rummage through your girlfriend’s skincare products and tried them out for yourself. In fact, rather than quickly applying a little of their girlfriend’s moisturiser on the odd the occasion in the hope that they don’t get caught, many men use their other half’s skincare products on a regular basis.

It may be 2010, but unfortunately, some men still feel that there is a certain stigma attached to buying and using men’s skincare products. This often prevents them from venturing out and leads to them using any old products which may be lying around the house.

In today’s society though, with top male celebrities endorsing men’s skincare products and encouraging the everyday man to follow suit, there really is no shame in taking pride in your appearance.

Whether they’re willing to admit it or not, many men are just as concerned with their appearance as women are- which is why there are some amazing and effective skincare products out there for men nowadays.

To get your own personal skincare regime off to the best start, pick up the Dermalogica Shave System Kit, which has everything you need to transform your skin for the better. As you can order the Shave System Kit online you don’t even need to venture into a ‘girly’ shop to buy it!

Prepare your skin for your summer holiday

If you’re fortunate enough to be flying off to sunnier and hotter climes this summer, it’s fairly safe to assume that you will be baring large amounts of skin. As the weather in the UK is mild at the best of times it’s no wonder that for many people, the thought of baring all in a bikini or beach shorts is the stuff that nightmare’s are made of!

It’s never too late to indulge in a little pre-holiday skin preparation though, and it can go a long way in boosting your confidence and ensuring that you can fully enjoy your summer break.

After being clad in thick clothing for months, it’s no surprise that many people suffer with dull and dry skin on their body. This problem can easily be overcome with Dermalogica The Ultimate Buffing Cloth and Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash though. Simply apply the body wash to the buffing cloth and gentle massage over the body- taking extra care to target dry areas. These products will help you to unveil smoother, brighter, beach-worthy skin.

Maximise the effects by liberally applying Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream– for skin that you just can’t wait to show off in your stylish beach wear!

Don’t let shaving irritate you

For many men, shaving isn’t the most pleasurable of tasks and is nothing more than a necessity which needs to be performed on a regular basis in order to achieve a clean-cut look.

Unless you’re intentionally growing facial hair, the unkempt unshaven look is generally not a good one- especially for those who need to maintain a professional image.

Those with sensitive skin can find shaving even more of a chore, especially if skin feels dry, tight and irritated after every shave.

Unfortunately, shaving can irritate even the most resilient of skin, although on the plus side, with so many fantastic shaving products on the market, it’s now easier than ever to achieve a close shave without skin having to suffer.

A great product for men with skin on the sensitive side is Dermalogica Soothing Shave Cream, which not only assists in achieving an incredibly close shave, but also calms, invigorates and hydrates skin along the way.

With Dermalogica Soothing Shave Cream, not only is skin left soft and supple, anti-bacterial properties help to keep breakouts at bay.

So, to achieve a close shave, eliminate irritation and revel in smooth skin, turn to Dermalogica- what more could a man ask for?!

Dealing with the effects of premature skin aging doesn’t mean a trip to the cosmetic surgeon

The signs of premature skin ageing can creep up on us when we least expect it, and noticing that a fine line has appeared where skin used to be practically perfect can be a bit of a shock to the system!

There are many factors which can contribute to premature skin ageing, with some of the most common being sun exposure, dehydration and a poor diet.

Thankfully, not only can you address all of these issues quickly and take the necessary action, you can also kick those fine lines back into touch.

Combating fine lines doesn’t mean a costly trip to the cosmetic surgeon for a hefty helping of Botox though, and you can wage war on them from the comfort of your own home provided you use the best products for the job.

Dermalogica AGE Smart Starter Kit is the perfect weapon in your fight against premature skin ageing, and contains a month’s worth of products which will get you on the right road to revamping your skin- leaving it looking much smoother and firmer.

Turn to Dermalogica before you turn to the surgeon’s knife- it could turn out to be the best decision you’ve ever made.
