August 16th this year marks National Men’s Grooming Day, and to celebrate, for the entire month of August, we’re focusing on anything and everything men’s grooming. Taking you through the best of the best products, in our first instalment, we’ve assembled a rundown of the most formidable skincare products on Mankind. In this post, we bring you the Best in Skincare for Men.
The first product on our Best In Skincare for Men rundown is the Anthony Glycolic Facial Cleanser is the kind of product that every man should keep handy. Men’s skin is usually a little thicker, regenerates a little quicker, and produces more oil than women’s skin, so exfoliation should be a major priority for the majority of men. Frequently exfoliating helps to keep pores clear and unclogged, and will bring about noticeable benefits for your complexion.
The Glycolic Facial Cleanser from Anthony contains not only nourishing Chamomile, Calendula, and Vitamins A, C and E, but soothing Aloe Vera, and exfoliating Glycolic Acid at a concentration of 4.9%. This means it effectively removes deep lying dirt from the pores without causing irritation.
La Potion Infinie from ARgENTUM is a unique anti-ageing elixir that has proven itself to be a huge favourite at Mankind. Formulated with Colloidal Silver, an ingredient which kills the bacteria that cause blemishes without irritating the skin, the intensely hydrating moisturiser protects, nourishes, and firms the skin while fighting the ageing process.
If you have an oily skin type, you’re probably all too aware of the downsides. Your pores become blocked more quickly, and it’s common to be more prone to breakouts and blemishes.
Men are more commonly affected by oily skin than women, and for this reason, products targeted towards oily skin are some of the most popular on Mankind. Far and away the most popular of these is the Clinique for Men Oil-Control Moisturiser.
Moisturising is no less important for those with oily skin, helping to plump and firm the skin’s outer layers, as well as forming a protective barrier against pollutants, free radicals, and bacteria. A lighweight, non-greasy formulation, the Oil-Control Moisturiser actively absorbs sebum to combat excessive residue, while nourishing and conditioning the skin.
The Lab Series Skincare for Men Pro LS All-In -One Face Treatment is the perfect daily moisturiser for the man who prizes simplicity. With combined anti-ageing, anti-pollution, mattifying, and soothing effects, this serum and moisturiser rolled into one is a well-established favourite at Mankind and a product you definitely need to try out for yourself.
Next up on our list of the Best In Skincare for Men, the Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream from Antipodes uses a nourishing blend of natural oils to hydrate and refine the skin around the eyes, combating the effects of tiredness, such as dark circles under the eyes.
The brand specialise in turning superfoods into highly effective skincare. The Eye Cream uses Carrot Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, Aloe gel, and uniquely, Kiwi Seed Oil to thoroughly nourish the delicate skin around the eye.
Elemis TFM Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is a high-performance anti-ageing moisturiser that harnesses the powers of Padina Pavonica, a Mediterranean Algae that promotes the growth of Collagen, as well as Gingko Biloba, which uses Antioxidants to shield from environmental aggressors.
The Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum from Aesop is an oil-free botanical serum that makes use of Ylang Ylang, Aloe Vera, and D-Panthenol to regulate the Vitamin levels in the skin, and promote proper moisture levels while avoiding irritation.
Hydrating, but rapidly absorbed by the skin, the serum is suitable for all skin types.
The Filorga Meso-Mask is an anti-ageing face mask that lightens the complexion while fighting signs of ageing and fatigue. Smoothing, refining wrinkles and targeting blemishes, the mask can be used for 15 to 30 minutes at a time to rapidly refresh the complexion.
