A men’s guide to skincare

A men’s guide to skincare

Skincare has historically been seen as a realm primarily for women, but times are changing. More men are recognising the importance of skincare in maintaining a healthy, youthful appearance and taking steps to care for their skin. With the rise of specialised skincare products tailored to men's needs, achieving great skin has never been easier. In this guide, we'll explore how Results Active Skin and Edwards Cosmeceuticals are revolutionising men's skincare routines, making the process simple and effective.

Understanding Men’s Skincare Needs

Before diving into specific products, it's crucial to understand men's skincare needs. Men's skin tends to be thicker, oilier, and more prone to irritation due to shaving. Additionally, men are more susceptible to conditions like acne, ingrown hairs, and uneven skin tone. Therefore, skincare products designed for men often focus on deep cleansing, oil control, hydration, and soothing irritated skin.

Introducing Results Active Skin Products

Edwards Cosmeceuticals: Elevating Men’s Skincare

Edwards Cosmeceuticals has been meticulously crafted and designed with potent bioactives to address your skin’s unique needs.

A highly effective combination of Lactic, Citric and Glycolic acid helps to shed dead skin cells, whilst Azelaic acid helps to eliminate congestion buildup. 
  • Anti-ageing serum: As men age, their skin loses elasticity and firmness, leading to the formation of fine lines. Edwards Cosmeceuticals Vitamin A Refining Serum helps refine and renew the skin with the anti-ageing powers of vitamin A and CoEnzyme Q10. This collagen-boosting formula assists to resurface the skin’s appearance.

  • Identify Your Skincare Concerns: Whether it's acne, dryness, ageing, or sensitivity, pinpointing your specific skincare concerns will help you choose the right products.
  • Start with the Basics: Begin with a cleanser, moisturiser, and sunscreen as the foundation of your skincare routine. Once you're comfortable with these basics, you can gradually incorporate additional products based on your needs.
  • Consistency is Key: Skincare is not a one-time fix; it requires consistency and patience. Establish a daily skincare routine and stick to it to see optimal results.
  • Patch Test New Products: Before applying a new product to your entire face, perform a patch test on a small area of skin to check for any adverse reactions.
