Our blog, admittedly, is a rather feminine place. And we like it that way! Today, though, we wanted to take a step back and consider the other half of the world – all the wonderful men in our lives. They have skin too – and let’s be honest, it could use a little more TLC. So, let’s talk about gifting guys skincare; a bold move, but as Pinterest always says, life begins outside your comfort zone, so let’s go there. Here are some tips for gifting skincare to men!
- Keep it Simple. Good luck telling your man that he needs to follow a five step process both day and night…you may get a significant eye roll. Instead, ease him into the skincare world with a basic routine. Start him out with a three step process: a cleanser, a moisturizer and a serum. Sticking with these essentials will ensure that his pores are clear, his skin is soft, and he’s thinking long-term about keeping wrinkles at bay.
- Find Products That Multitask. Look for products that can serve multiple purposes. Our Purifying Cleanser is a great face wash for minimizing pores and leaving skin with that minty-fresh feeling (thanks to silver fir and ginger essential oils); it also makes a great shaving cream, undiluted with water. The Rejuvenating Serum is another great multitasker; it mattifies the skin for a balanced complexion while nourishing with antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients.
- More Than Just a Handsome Face. Don’t forget to think beyond products for your guy’s face; dry, scaly legs don’t look good on anyone. Consider his routine – does he tend to shower every morning? Then our Body Lotion might be the perfect gift for him to easily lather on post shower to prevent dry skin throughout the winter. If you are buying gifts for a man who loves to workout, our Soothing Muscle Gel is a perfect purchase. The powerful formula relives the feeling of sore mussels with an immediate cooling sensation.
We took an impromptu survey at our headquarters with some of the men in our office; Patrick uses the Regenerating Cleanser and would love to be gifted the Muscle Gel. Louis thinks that with out a doubt the Body Oil is the best product for men, while Andrew thinks that our Restorative Eye Creme is nice; it helps minimize puffiness and dark circles in that oft-forgotten area.
