A New Year brings in the opportunity for us to make promises and prepare ourselves for better days ahead. And trust me who wouldn’t want to be happier, healthier and well groomed 365 days of the year. For all the man folks out there Waiching’s Wall has got you this exclusive Man & Beauty Interview where we’d be exploring secrets to younger skin and some grooming tips for Men in 2016.
I chatted with Paula Negrisan the Regional Training Manager of Clarins Middle East and who was extremely informative in sharing with us details and key Clarins products that were designed specifically for the male skin type.
Waiching’s Wall Grooming Routine for Men:
1) Try using the Clarins Men Exfoliating Cleanser to purify and exfoliate your skin. One can start off by using it daily on damp skin and on the face. However avoid the eyes. Exfoliating in circular motions helps you to clean the skin evenly. While you rinse with water you’d see how it deeply cleanses your skin. For the men who work outdoors or travel for work this would be helpful.
2) Innovative and fresh is what I call the Clarins Shave Ease Oil. A lot of you might be wondering why do I need shave oil that facilitates in the shaving process. Listen up! Those of you who hate shaving only because your beard grows every other day, applying this oil before you start shaving could be helpful. The oil helps to soften tough whiskers, which a shaving gel wouldn’t be able to assist with. I’d recommend using it 5 minutes before onto damp skin and a little massage would do wonders.
3) Every man needs his shaving gel or foam whatever you prefer. But I’m using the Clarins Smooth Shave currently. I’ve mentioned above about the Clarins Shave Ease Oil so you could try combining that along with the Smooth Shave if you are in haste. Else you can try using them individually, but do give your skin a little breather, so as to ease the process of shaving.
Top tip: Always rinse off with warm water. It helps to remove all impurities once you’re done shaving.
4) Using an After-shave lotion or balm is essential. And I’d admit that I’m not a loyalist of it. Only because some after shave products have a very woody masculine smell that I’m not a fan off. And I end up using a moisturizing cream. But after having used the Clarins After Shave Energizer, I admit that it doesn’t burn the skin, not to mention any of that strong smell and leaves the man skin energized.
Top Tip: For a soothing after shave feel and comfort, try using a moisturizer or anti-ageing day care.
Waiching’s Wall Recommends Eye & Skin Care:
A lot of men do not realize the importance of eye and skin care. For the men who believe in staying well groomed we’d be unfurling two new products that I discovered recently. A good shave definitely makes a man feel confident and that resonates inside out. However being groomed does mean taking care of body and skin too.
The Clarins Anti-Fatigue Eye Serum is an instantly refreshing serum that refreshes the eye contour and soothes away all signs of tiredness and fatigue in the eye. It’s easy to use and needs to be applied gently to the eye contour without pulling the skin at the eye area. Best known for anti-dark dark circles and anti-puffiness, of course a lot of us men work till late and wake up early. So I’m going to need more of this.
With each passing day, we grow older and our skin undergoes various changes in the same manner. Just as much as our body needs food and water to survive, our beloved skin needs food too. Clarins Men introduced the Revitalizing Gel, which apparently restores the skin’s energy and vitality thereby boosting a natural radiance on a man’s skin. The perfect time to use this gel would be mornings or a little time before you hit the bed. Both ways the gel would help you feel younger each day.
Being a gentleman is something every man wants, however grooming yourself isn’t that tough. I’m sure the article above would have sounded well to you already. However I am not vain and I do not intend to arouse any vain feelings for anyone. Be who you are, look good; make others feel great and live life beautifully. That’s kind of my motto actually.
Not to forget Clarins is a premium French brand that has won hearts world over, that having said its great food for your skin and body.
