4 male skincare products worth your time

How to protect your skin through the demanding party season.

EDGAR staff November 19, 2015

Skincare isn’t a subject at the top of many men’s agendas, and we can totally sympathise – who has got time to mess around worrying about applying potions and lotions when there is sport to be played, cars to be driven and food to be eaten?

However – bear with us here – considering how full-on the party season here in the UAE can be (it seems like there’s a black-tie event on every other night…) all those late night can take a serious toll on your skin. And nobody wants to go out looking like a craggy faced old man.

So we asked the experts at grooming retailer Wojooh to recommend four essential products that we should be using every morning and night, how to apply them and why they are worth our time. Here’s what they had to say:

1. Clarins Men Exfoliating Cleanser

How to apply: Smear the exfoliator on damp skin, avoiding the eye area. Work into a lather and gently massage over skin, focusing on the middle of the face. Rinse well for a deep-cleansing effect.

Why: It removes embedded sweat, oil, dead skin cells and ingrown hairs.

Price: AED 144

2. Clarins Men Active Face Wash Foaming Gel

How to apply: After exfoliating, lather face wash on to damp skin, again avoiding the eye area. Rinse well. For maximum toning benefits, follow with a splash of cool water.

Why: To remove impurities. This foaming facial wash tackles dirt, grime and pollutants with the gentle purifying power of grindelia and gaultheria extracts; it also leaves razor-burned skin soft, toned and geared-up to handle whatever comes its way. 

Price: AED 133

3. Clinique Moisturise Lotion

How to apply: After exfoliating and washing, apply lotion liberally on face and throat. Allow to soak in to keep skin moisturised.

Why: This moisturiser has a lightweight formula that’s ideal for all skin types and that will deliver all-day moisture and skin strengthening. It won’t leave you with shiny skin because its formula absorbs really quickly.

Price: AED 211

4. Lancôme Age Fight

How to apply: Finally, apply small amounts of Lancôme Age Fight in circular motion around the eye area.

Why: To fight against the signs of premature ageing. This cream works well on all skin types and will also block 99 per cent of oxidative stress, leaving you with a more relaxed skin.

Price: AED 285
