Some of the trickiest people to buy for seem to be the men in our lives; Husbands, brothers, uncles and dads – we’ve lost count of the amount of times we’ve seen blank looks and shrugged shoulders when we ask “what do you want for Christmas?”! We thought we’d give you a look at some of our best products for men to give you some inspiration for stocking fillers or even a home-made hamper of pampering goodies.
Between the usual environmental elements and the potential for every day shaving and damage to the skin, the guys in our lives often need something to protect and repair their faces. Decleor Face Skin Energiser Fluid is a light, fresh moisturiser which nourished dull, tired skin as well as soothing razor burn and slowing hair regrowth. It also helps to halt the signs of aging.
Using oil as a pre-shave treatment is really important as it helps to lift the hairs and allow you to get a really close shave. It also protects the skin from too much friction, reducing the risk of razor burn. Dermalogica Close Shave Oil is a clear oil which can also be used on its own as a barrier for shaving areas like sideburns and goatees, where precision is needed.
Plenty of men suffer with issues related to shaving, especially if they have sensitive skin, which is why a good post-shave treatment is essential. Decleor Soothing Aftershave Fluid is a light, non-greasy formula which absorbs quickly and helps to soothe the damage done by shaving. It helps to heal small cuts and also reduces the production of sebum to prevent the skin from looking oily.
Getting your guy into the habit of wearing a daily sun block is a really good idea as it will not only protect against melanoma, but also help to reduce the signs of aging. Dermalogica Daily Defence Block has an SPF15 protection built in and contains wheat germ and grape seed extracts, as well as Vitamin E to defend against skin-aging free radicals while combating irritation associated with shaving.
Whether they choose to be clean-shaven or sport a full beard cleansing the face effectively is hugely important, so a product like Decleor Clean Skin Scrub is essential in any man’s wash bag. It contains Essential Oils of Clove and Eucalyptus for a fresh, zingy feel and exfoliates the skin to reveal the new cells beneath.
