When I first started reviewing “beauty” products for men, I couldn’t get any guys to try the products. I had to press my reluctant husband into service. Mostly, he complained that the products for men required too much effort, or made his skin feel “greasy” (if all you’ve ever used is soap that makes your skin dry and tight, anything moisturizing can feel….strange).
But now every man I know over a certain age has gotten wise to the fact that some skincare is a good thing. The Advice Sisters recently received products from PCA Skin. PCA SKIN’s medical grade products incorporate the high tech ingredients to nourish, hydrate and rejuvenate skin. They’re free of color additives, synthetic fragrances, harsh alcohols, comedogenic oils and other known sensitizers, so they’re great for sensitive skin, and for people with specific skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, hyperpigmentation, rosacea and fine lines and wrinkles. PCA SKIN daily care products are available through physicians and licensed medical professionals, and in some online drugstores.
It might be even more challenging to get your special guy to use another product, especially a serum (guys automatically think these are for girls or don’t get what they’re for). That’s where you come in. Tell hin that the blue glass pump bottle of Total Strength Line & Pore Minimizer $72.00 1 fl. oz. is a scientifically advanced peptide serum formulated with skin strengthening and antibacterial agents, to dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores and leave skin clear, firm and younger looking. It’s such a simple step in a simple skincare routine of three products — you’d think every guy would rush to use this product! Ah well, after it sat in my stash to review for a long while, I finally relented and tried it myself. I could feel the moisturization, immediately. There are powerful, key ingredients in this little bottle including: moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid; Palmitoyl Oligopeptide-Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3 (Matrixyl 3000™); Hydrolyzed Serum Protein (EGF), and also Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil; and Vitamin E, and Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horsechestnut) Seed Extract. That is a lot of good stuff for the skin!!!! All he really has to do after cleansing and after shaving, is apply two pumps of this serum to his entire face and neck, morning and night, and then follow with a moisturizer with SPF, preferably Total Defense Calming Hydrator SPF 25.
Father’s Day may be the perfect time to gift your dad, and other special guys in your life, with high quality skin care just for men. It beats another tie, or a gadget he really doesn’t need. Good skin care, every man needs! Gifting your guy with great skin care will get him results he can see, and convince him to invest in better skin now and for the future
