I thought it would be good timing with Father’s Day fast approaching to take a look at men's skincare and some of the great gift ideas that we have at ELEMIS.
The first thing we need to establish is the fact that men do like to use high quality skincare and they see a need for it as much as women do.
However, men’s skin is different to women’s. It is thicker, more sensitive and has a coarser texture. This combined with how they like their skin to feel after applying product and the fact that they may shave on a daily basis causes a whole new realm of skin problems. Products specifically designed with men’s skin in mind need to be.
Annoyingly, male skin does in fact age a lot less than female skin. However, men still need to hydrate and protect their skin. The development of our Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men means that the guys in your life now have their own skin-specific anti-ageing cream. This instantly hydrating moisturiser firms, smoothes and helps improve the appearance of wrinkles. Unique Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica, is combined with anti-oxidant rich Ginkgo Biloba and soothing Abyssine™ to improve moisturisation, skin suppleness, firmness and elasticity. Skin is left looking more youthful and shine-free, and feels replenished. Ideal for post-shave comfort.
On QVC we have partnered this multi award-winning moisturiser with the Men's Deep Cleansing Facial Wash making this a great gift duo for him.
One of my favourite duos though, and the one I have chosen as my Father’s Day gift choice as we have put it together with Father’s Day in mind, contains:
Active Hair & Body Wash (200ml)
The heavenly blend of nine natural, mood-boosting essential oils including Bitter Orange, Cardamom and Patchouli imparts a delicious woody-citrus cologne-like scent and can be used on the face, hair and body. It is perfect for even the most ultra-sensitive of skins making it so versatile. A multi-purpose hair and body wash is just what the man in your life has been waiting for, it's been designed to provide fuss-free and easy-to-use cleansing to leave skin feeling clean along with soft and manageable hair. Treat him to cool, clean and cared-for skin with this rich and invigorating formulation.
Ice Cool Foaming Shave Gel (200ml)
A high-performance foaming gel that smoothly moulds to the face for a clean close shave. When a man shaves he’s also removing dead skin cells and the superficial layer of the epidermis so it’s important to lock moisture in and soothe the skin. Scientifically formulated, this high performance foaming gel gives a cushioned support between the razor and the skin delivering a super close shave without compromising the skin. This product is perfect for all ages and skin types; for those red heads with super sensitive skins through to those with tough dark beard growth. Cooling Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel and English Oak help to protect skin and soothe razor burns, giving comfort and results.
Both of these products are functional yet offer an element of luxury and come presented in a zipped pouch for handy storage, making the ideal gift for Father's Day.
