The ultimate men’s skincare edit is finally here, just in time for autumn and the surge of icy cold and wet weather it brings with it. Looking after your skin is even more important at this time of year as even though the summer calls for layers of SPF, heading into winter calls for moisture, moisture and more moisture to inject a bit of life into your skin.
Clarins Men Active Face Wash, £17.99 / RRP £21.50 If your skin is slightly on the drier side, this Clarins Men Active Face Wash is a great cleanser that can be used day-to-day. It removes impurities to leave your skin feeling clean and fresh. While this non-drying refreshing gel is recommended for all skin types, it’s a great one to use if your skin is normally left feeling dull and tight after a hot shower or throughout the day. A boost of moisture is just what you need and Clarins is here to deliver.
Himalaya Herbals Intense Oil Lemon Face Wash, £3.49 However, if your skin is on the oily side this is a great one to try out. Now, don’t be fooled by the name. Its Intense Oil label stems from it being the perfect product for oily skin. Powered with white spice, lemon and Indian willow this face wash is perfect to fully clear and rejuvenate your skin. In addition to that, its active boost technology helps to fuse herbal activity for even better results.
Barber Pro Face Putty Black Peel-Off Mask, £4.00 / RRP £4.95 Have you ever tried an activated charcoal face mask? They went viral online not so long back with everyone uploading slow-mo videos of them peeling them off and showing the results of tiny little blackhead stems poking out. It all sounds pretty gross, but what’s worse is keeping all that built-up oil and dirt in your pores, so it’s time to get them out. If you suffer from blackheads or clogged pores, this is a great mask to try out to clear your skin.
Admiral Detoxifying Facial Scrub with Cucumber Extract, £4.50 / RRP £12.94 Facial scrubs are great to use if you don’t have the time for face masks or if you’re just after a daily dose of scrubbing action. This product can be worked into a lather that will deeply exfoliate, detoxify and cleanse your face while clearing away built-up dirt and excess oils. It’s filled with active ingredients that will help to reduce puffiness around the eyes and brighten dark circles too.
Elemis Men Daily Moisture Boost, £20.50 / RRP £25.00 This lightweight moisturiser recharges and hydrates the skin after shaving, defending it from harsh external pollutants. It has an incredible formula that immediately nourishes and hydrates your skin. This is a great all-round daily moisturiser to use morning and night to keep your skin topped up.
Elemis For Men Defence Eye Reviver, £25.99 / RRP £30.00 After you’ve given some much-needed TLC to your face, it’s time to turn your attention to the eyes. The skin around your eyes is so much more sensitive than the skin on the rest of your face so an eye cream is always a good way to go as it’s effective but doesn’t overload. This product has been clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles by up to 37% and increase hydration by up to 82% in 28 days too!
BOSS The Scent Aftershave Balm, £20.99 / RRP £26.25 Finally, we’re finishing off this bundle of product recommendations for rejuvenating your skin with an incredible scented product.
