ELEMIS Men – Top 5 Skincare Picks
23 May 2022
Gone are the day when men’s skincare consisted of a multi-functional bar of soap – as concepts of masculinity and beauty have changed over the years, skincare and self-care is no longer just for women. With so many products now designed exclusively for men, it’s a whole new world out there – and it can be hard knowing where to start.
So why can’t men and women just use the same products? Apart from being hairier overall, including on the face, men’s skin is also thicker by almost 25%. So, while men can use skincare products designed for women, they may not be as effective.
Since its launch in 1989, ELEMIS has been pushing the boundaries with scientific innovation in skincare. Read on for allbeauty’s top ELEMIS men’s skincare picks.
ELEMIS Men Deep Cleanse Facial Wash
Whether your skin is hidden behind a beard or not, it’s important to make sure your skin is cleansed properly so that your pores remain unclogged. The ELEMIS Men Deep Cleanse Facial Wash contains ingredients that cleanse your skin deeply and smell great too. Spearmint, peppermint, and oak bark combine with a milk protein base in this ELEMIS cleanser to remove dirt and grime and leave your skin feeling refreshed.
Simply work up a lather with a pea sized amount in the palm of your hand with some water. Massage into your face and rinse off. Use every morning and evening or whenever your face feels grimy.
Pro tip: This facial wash is a great pre-shave cleanser too, as it lifts up the hair gently to allow for a smoother shave.
ELEMIS Men Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
Anti-ageing products are no longer made just for women, and the ELEMIS Men Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is especially formulated to combat the signs of ageing in men’s skin.
Keeping your skin hydrated is key to looking younger. This award-winning ELEMIS moisturiser contains Padina pavonica, a Mediterranean alga, which helps protect the skin from damaging free radicals and supplies it with the nutrients it needs to lock moisture in. Ginkgo bilboa is rich in antioxidants that protect your skin from environmental damage.
Apply to your face after cleansing every morning and evening.
Pro tip: The ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is really soothing on the skin, so it’s perfect for applying after you shave.
ELEMIS Men Ice-Cool Foaming Shave Gel
Speaking of shaving, the ELEMIS Ice-Cool Foaming Shave Gel is designed to help you get the coolest shave you can at home. The thick foam molds itself to the contours of your face allowing you to get an irritation-free close shave. Anti-inflammatory oak bark and witch hazel help reduce razor-burn further. Jujube extract combats blemish-causing bacteria, and aloe vera cools and soothes skin further for the ultimate shaving experience.
Work into a lather. Apply to cleansed damp skin before shaving.
ELEMIS Men Smooth Result Shave and Beard Oil
Properly caring for and maintaining a great beard isn’t easy, and beards can look scruffy and dry if they aren’t looked after. Using a good beard oil can help you make sure your facial hair looks healthy and glossy. The ELEMIS Men Smooth Result Shave and Beard Oil is packed with vitamin-rich jojoba, hazelnut and grapeseed oils that moisturise the skin under your beard and leave the hair feeling soft and nourished. Simply massage a few drops into your beard and you’re good to go.
If you do shave, this ELEMIS facial oil doubles up to soften hard facial hair for a smoother shave. Apply a few drops to cleansed, damp skin and continue with your shaving ritual as normal.
ELEMIS Body Performance Cool Down Body Wash
ELEMIS has an entire range of body performance products designed to look after your skin and muscles. Paradoxically, hygienic habits like bathing or showering can actually dry out skin. The ELEMIS Body Performance Cool Down Body Wash is a re-energizing ELEMIS body wash that hydrates your skin while you bathe. Ingredients like birch sap and mango extracts moisturise your skin while wolf’s bane (Arnica montana) flower extract and menthol make you feel cool and refreshed. Magnesium helps re-energize your body.
Apply to the body while bathing or showering. Massage for best results. Rinse off thoroughly.
