A strong half of humanity is time to say goodbye to the stereotype “cosmetics is only for women”. Of course, every man is confident in his natural attractiveness and does not see the need to spend time at the mirror.
And in vain.
Women are not the only creatures to care for their skin. For the face and body to have an attractive appearance, they need proper care.
And men’s skin is no exception, it is also subject to aging processes, stress and irritation, worsening its appearance.
Modern researchers devote enormous amounts of time and energy to the development of cosmetics for the strong half of humanity. So it’s time to once and forever dispel the myths that many of our men still believe.
It is believed that men owe their youthfulness to this particular procedure. But nothing is more irritating to the skin than daily shaving. Dermatologists claim that shaving thinns the stratum corneum, impairs the protective function of the skin and causes it to experience constant stress.
Therefore, after shaving, she so needs moisturizing and softening. The efforts of cosmetic assistants – lotions, gels, creams and balms – are aimed at this.
The most versatile of them are gels (shaving gel, Biotherm Homme, foam shaving gel, Clarins Men). They do not contain alcohol, which means they prevent the skin from drying out, due to the content of aloe and menthol they refresh and soothe the skin and do not leave an oily effect.
Before shaving, it is important to use a scrub (Clarins Men Activ Face Scrub). Firstly, men’s skin is subject to strong keratinization, therefore, often needs deep cleansing, and secondly, the scrub not only removes dead particles, but also softens the bristles. A shave better on an empty stomach.
After eating, the blood rushes strongly to the face, and injuring the thin vessels is easier than ever. And shave the hairs should be strictly in the direction of growth, to avoid their ingrowth.
Men’s skin is aging slowly, maintaining its elasticity and tone for a long time, and all thanks to its tight skin, abundance of collagen and intensive blood circulation. But as soon as the collagen fibers begin to break down, the face becomes covered with deep wrinkles and folds, an optoz (erosion of the face contour) appears, which is difficult to correct. And in this case, the female cosmetic bag is not an assistant.
The structure of male and female skin is different, and therefore, care products must be different.
For example, men’s cosmetics for the area around the eyes is aimed at removing edema and dark circles (toning gel for the area around the eyes of Clinique Men), while women – at intensive moisturizing and smoothing wrinkles. Male cosmetics use lighter textures that are easily absorbed into “thick” skin (light anti-aging facial serum Dior Homme), and female products contain fatty components that male skin, whose sebaceous glands work for one hundred percent, will not do any good .
The best help will be the means with specially developed “male” formulas: antibacterial cleansers with anti-inflammatory effect (anti-bacterial gel Payot Homme), moisturizing emulsions after shaving, making the skin soft and smooth (healthy emulsion Normactiv Cg, Vichy Homme), deodorants, deodorants, anti-inflammatory effect (dehydrating emulsion Normactiv Cg, Vichy Homme), anti-inflammatory emulsions after shaving, make the skin soft and smooth bacteria (deodorant 1Million, Paco Rabanne).
Especially popular with men are the “3 in 1” products that combine shampoo, conditioner and body gel. But such care is better to apply only in emergency cases such as a business trip.
With frequent use, these drugs do not provide the hair with the necessary nutrition and moisture, which is important. After all, gentlemen are most susceptible to hair loss.
Special shampoos for men contain anti-dandruff substances, various complexes and extracts against hair loss, as well as a large number of moisturizing ingredients that prevent dryness of the scalp (soft shampoo for sensitive scalp SP Just Men, toning shampoo against hair loss Dercos, Vichy Homme). It is these supplements that provide head of health and give it a well-groomed look.
Each of the men is trying to find in the flavor of something his own, close and understandable. The style of men’s clothing does not imply a lot of room for self-expression, but the perfume gives the image individuality. In addition, the fragrance is designed to attract the opposite sex.
And every year there are new items that allow you to do all of the above more effectively. Fresh citrus compositions with lemon, grapefruit or orange flavor (Lanvin L’Homme, Lanvin; Paco, Paco Rabanne) are suitable for athletic, active males, spicy compositions with combinations of pepper, ginger and cinnamon (Opium Rom Homme, Yves Saint Laurent) ), this macho is better to stay on classic compositions with notes of sandalwood (Kenzo Рour Homme, Kenzo).
