Think of what your skin looks like after a relaxing week:end, late night or three hours in bumper to bumper traffic: what looked good in the morning can look slightly worse for wear by the end of the day. It makes sense to have a collection of low maintenance, high performance products that can keep up with your lifestyle. Here’s a selection of tried and tested all time favourite skin care ranges for your consideration:
Aramis Lab Series for Men: probably the first skin care range to make male grooming both socially acceptable and pleasurable. The products are updated for the 21st century, centred on shaving and are targeted to address the specific problems men encounter with their skin. You will also like Clinique Skin Supplies for Men
ClarinsMen: the relative newcomer to the market that incorporated the best of everything botanical into contemporary packaging, backed it up with sound research and consumer friendly education. You’ll love it if you prefer plant-based products or looking to butch up your existing Clarins range.
Environ: the local miracle that not only dispels the myth that price equals performance but has attracted international applause too. It’s packed with massive doses if vitamin A and other powerful antioxidants to remove all signs of damage & neglect. It’s your first consideration before seeking medical intervention.
Estee Lauder: lavish and indulgent but worth every cent when you expect results from a skin care regime that becomes an all encompassing experience that includes sight, touch and fragrance. Beautifully packaged and textured- and most importantly delivers results. Don’t be shy about Chanel, Dior, Dior and all those names, names, names!
Kanebo: luxurious minimalism for anyone who believes that meditation can be bottled. The double cleansing routine is followed by double moisturisation that defies belief. This product deserves the luxury of time to be appreciated but the results are immediate.
MAC: the no nonsense, performance orientated range that’s both progressive and innovative without being fussy: unless you want it to be. It looks good in your bathroom cabinet and makes you look good too. If you’re a boy that needs a little discreet maquillage they can help too.
The Body Shop: environmentally inclined, relatively affordable and delivers results as promised. Who knew that buying a simple facial scrub could empower third world communities and make you look good while doing good deeds!
