6 Skincare Tips For Men

If you're getting up in the morning, washing your face with bar soap and water and running out the door, then it's time to step up your skincare game. We aren't suggesting that you fill up your bathroom cabinet with hard-to-pronounce cleansers and creams you probably won't use. But we do recommend committing to memory and practicing these six skincare tips that will make others do a double-take. But seriously, don't let these steps intimidate you... they're only fine-tuning what you already do.

1. Wash your face with a good cleanser. Be careful of taking super hot showers and using harsh soaps or face scrubs. This makes your skin dry and when your skin is dry you appear wrinkly and much older.

It is important to have a gentle cleanser that will cleanse the skin from the dirt and oil that can accumulate. Lumi's Gentle Cleanser is recommended

2. Stop buying cheap razors. With some men shaving five times a week investing in a quality razor can be a lifetime item, so choose your weapon wisely. A too-close shave does more than just nick the skin. Continued trauma caused by cutting the skin can cause skin breakage over time. Invest in a quality razor and go with, not against, the grain of hair using gentle strokes. Choose a razor that fits your skin sensitivity and beard coarseness, your face will thank you.

3. Make after-shave your new best friend.  After-shave hydrates and soothes the skin; it also seals in the skin after a nice shave. Your after-shave should be alcohol-free because alcohol dries your skin.

4. Don't skip the facial moisturizer. Facial hair is great, but make sure what skin is exposed doesn't feel like sandpaper. Moisturizing daily with Lumi's Moisture + will give you soft, hydrated skin.

5. Never leave home without applying sunscreen. If you can find a moisturizer that contains SPF of 30 or higher, then you're on the way to stopping those pesky wrinkles. Make sure you have a spare sunscreen in the car or desk drawer as reapplication is necessary. 

6. Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow to skin, and causes wrinkles, sagging skin and an unhealthy yellowish hue. The good news? Once you quit, the repairing process begins’ which may help reverse the damage that’s already done, depending on its severity.

Reduce Sun Damage.... #skinbykarenstrachan™

Best ways to repair sun-damage?

  • Sunscreen - Start using a good quality broad spectrum sunscreen every day to allow the skin to start repairing itself..it prevents pigmentation, burst capillaries and uneven skin tone, it will prevent large pores and saggy skin by preventing the breakdown of collagen from sun exposure. .Our favourite at Luminosity is Actinica SPF 50+. It has a lovely matt finish which sits under foundation really well.
  • Frac 3 Laser Therapy - safe for all skin types and is clinically proven to stimulate collagen, promote healing and hydration and gives the skin an incredible lustre without downtime.
  • Eye Serum -  I believe we should start with an eye cream as early as 20. The skin around the eyes is much finer and has less oil glands so we need a specific eye treatment to keep this skin supple and moist so as to prevent fine lines and crepiness, Lumi's am pm eye serum is the ideal product for this.
  • Exfoliate the skin - How often should you exfoliate your skin? It really depends on your skin type and specific conditions. I would say usually two to three times per week with an Dr Natasha Cook Clarifier and also recommend using the exfoliating Lumi cleanser twice daily as well. This cleanser has an AHA such as lactic acid to chemically exfoliate the skin and promote hydration. 
  • Anti-oxidant serum - Lumi CoQ10 - layered under your sunscreen during the day. Use a Retinol / Vitamin A serum at night to stimulate collagen production and refine the texture of your skin.
