Should Men Use Skincare?

Why not??  Who doesn’t have an extra little spring in their step when they know they’re lookin’ good?  Regardless of gender, taking care of ourselves on the outside can affect how we feel on the inside.  Dryness, wrinkles, and lack of elasticity are signs of aging.  Men want to improve their skin and combat the signs of aging.  For that reason, it is very important for men to keep their skin moisturized and give it all the vitamins that it needs.

Today I will be reviewing BeautiControl’s BC Man Skincare collection (19616) , which is pH balanced for a man’s skin.  BC Man is an easy to use 3-step regimen that easily fits into every man’s shaving routine.  The BC Man collection also includes BC Man Cologne (18766), which has a zesty citrus scent.  I recommend it for men of all ages who love a clean, modern fragrance.

STEP 1:  RENEWING FACE WASH

Step 1 in a daily skincare regimen for men of all ages is to prepare the skin each morning by cleansing.  Renewing Face Wash (18946) is a lightweight gel cleanser that removes deep-down dirt, sweat, and oil without drying out the skin.  This gentle formula is non-comedogenic – it does not block the pores, thus it may help to reduce acne.

STEP 2:  COMFORTING SHAVING CREME

Comforting Shave Creme (18945) is a lightweight shaving lotion that contains botanical oils to help soften the hair prior to shaving and allow the razor to glide effortlessly over the skin.  This formula also contains Jojoba oil, which is an excellent moisturizer and emollient.  It helps to improve skin elasticity and suppleness, and protects skin from the damaging effects of free radicals.  It is a natural oil that is the most similar to human sebum.  It contains vitamin E, which is well known for promoting healthy and clear skin.

  • Soothes and calms skin
  • Potent antioxidants protect skin from environmental damage
  • Lightweight formula won’t clog your razor and rinses easily

  • Ginkgo Biloba Extract ~ Helps soothes skin and stimulate cell renewal and rejuvenate skin.
  • Creatine ~ Energizes skin and protects from environmental damage.

STEP 3:  TRIPLE DUTY MOISTURIZER

Triple Duty Moisturizer (18947) is ideal for daily use.  This lightweight, oil-free, enriched moisturizer acts as an after-shave balm, anti-aging serum, and moisturizer, all in one easy product.  It satisfies the 3 basic components of healthy skin (Maintenance, Repair, & Prevention).  For more information about MRP, see my earlier post “Healthy Skin 101.”  My husband recently started using Triple Duty Moisturizer.  After only using it for a few days, he went to get a haircut from his stylist for the past 15 years.  She immediately commented that he looked about 10 years younger!  Needless to say, he came home beaming.

Key Benefits:

  • Potent antioxidants protect skin from environmental damage
  • Fights common signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, uneven texture, and loss of firmness
