December 16, 2016

The last weekend before Christmas! We’ve been there. Since you’re going to be travelling home for the holiday season to spend time with the family, you thought this was the best time to go crazy with the people you actually like: your mates. 

The weekend’s going to be great and all, but you need to be in work mode come Sunday – at least, pretend like you’re ready to work. We spoke to Shiseido skincare expert Soha Diab to help you get through the week. You’re welcome.

How do bags affect the male face?
Dark circles are not only appearance killers but they make you feel and look more tired than you actually are, adding unwanted years to the skin.

What are the causes of dark circles?
They are usually caused when fluid builds up in the soft tissue under the eyes. Improper diet, smoking, stress and lack of sleep can increase the amount of fluid that builds up.

How can we combat this?
Men can change elements of their lifestyle and daily routine. Reduce your intake of salty and fatty foods and alcohol, and try to get at least eight hours of sleep.

What products will help?
Eye soothers are becoming very popular. They are an eye treatment that works on fatigue, dark circles, puffiness and dryness around the eyes. They can instantly bring back freshness to strained eyes.
