This week, we were lucky enough to catch up with the king of skincare – Ole Henriksen, himself. I know, pretty cool, huh?!
We put all your burning questions to Ole, including his holy grail men’s grooming products and tips – here’s our top questions!
Thanks for taking the time to speak to us Ole! What are your holy grail grooming products for men?
Exfoliation is key – a guy needs exfoliation for a close shave to ensure the skin is smooth and supple. I’d recommend the Walnut Complexion Scrub within my Ole Henriksen range. It feels manly – and exfoliates and polishes tremendously! The tightly-packed granules made from walnut particles are really densely incorporated into the formulation so that it polishes, refines, smoothes the skin and removes all the dead skin cells. It gets into each crease and crevice of your face, preventing potential ingrowing hairs.
How would Mankind customers use the Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub?
Rub onto your face with upward circular motions and activate it with water. The scrub then foams up perfectly for a refreshing cleanse. Marc Walburg, Justin Timberlake and Hugh Jackman are all HUGE fans of this!
A guy wants skin protected against the elements – and sun protection is a must! Guys want a moisturiser with a mattifying-finish. All my products have tremendous anti-ageing properties as they have high concentrations of micro alpha peptides.
I love to use the Ole Henriksen Truth Revealed Super Creme as it’s full of Vitamin C. It’s not just an antioxidant, it also brightens and evens your skin tone. It has fantastic sun protection and with a skincare cancer foundation seal of approval, it has undergone extensive testing to ensure it delivers across the board. Very effective one step treat for after you’ve cleansed your skin.
What are your top three grooming tips for men?
Men want to look good and sexy for their other halves are my three tips are…
Hair needs to be hip and well taken care of. Hair is a great way for a guy to express himself – but if you’re bald like me, you need to make sure your scalp is kept healthy!
A fit body. This is a major part of grooming and exercise is a must! Exercise makes you physically stronger, and helps you perform at your best in everything you do.
Healthy teeth and gums – Make sure you’ve got a healthy set of teeth and gums. A smile connects all of us and breaks down barriers.
