Do’s and Don’ts of Male Grooming

22nd February 2013 in Male Grooming, Skincare, Uncategorised - 6 Comments - 2 min read >/div>

A while back I said I was going to start doing more posts including men’s skincare and cosmetics so this is the first of many a post about the topic!
I thought I would start off with something simple a few do’s and don’ts to get everyone started. I’ve put done some of my personal opinions as well as asked some Beauty Bloggers and other Makeup Artists opinions

I think my biggest tip for skincare on anyone is,

  • Don’t wash your face with Soap and Water it can dry your skin out so badly causing it to age prematurely and if you keep doing it for prolonged periods your skin will start to resemble a leather like texture
  • Taking a brow gel through your brows can be enough to tidy them up and give them some sort of shape i find that sometimes a powder or a pencil is too much for guys but Brow Gel is just perfect as it adds colour/texture and fixes everything into place
  • Taking a concealer over your trouble spots works so much better than using a foundation all over as you will give the coverage without looking made up
  • Set with a face powder to make sure everything is in place this way it will last longer and you wont look shiney you will have the perfect flawless matte skin
  • If you go over the top with the concealer take something like MAC Fix+ and spray it on your face and buff it out that way you disperse the makeup without removing it and keeping some of the coverage
I have some tips now from other Industry Insiders-

“Men shouldn’t be afraid of beauty products, if you want to try something just do it it doesn’t make you less of a man if you want to try the latest moisturiser or steal your girlfriends lip balm”

    -Jayne Read from JaynesKitschen

“Stick to a regular routine.. using anything once won’t do a thing” 
    -Jane from BritishBeautyBlog

“Don’t all for marketing and restrict yourself to ‘men only’ skincare ranges. If something isn’t working for you, change it.”
   -Andy from Pampered Prince

Take care of nails on hands and feet. Grooming isn’t just about face and hair.
   -Daniel Sandler from Daniel Sandler Cosmetics

“Groomed brows, cut and waxed but slightly rugged, nose and ears waxed.”
  – Billion Dollar Brows UK

  • If you haven't already heard Kylie Jenner is now dipping into skincare as well as makeup.

All I'll say is it's completely different putting a makeup line together as that's rather easy but trying to put together a skincare line that's actually useful and not a bunch of generic rubbish is harder.

Kylie Jenner has effectively repackaged one of the worst face scrubs known to man, St Ives Apricot Scrub! 
This new scrub will contain crushed walnut shells as it's main exfoliant which couldn't be worse for the skin as it has the tendency to cause micro tears in the skin if it's used roughly and can lead to all sorts of problems from letting bacteria into the skin to comprising your hydrolipid barrier.

With all of these new technology in skincare coming from brands like Deciem it feels like this Kylie Jenner product is coming from the late 2000s. To me it just screams lack of thought and can we talk about how generic it is? It's like all she wants to do is  make more money instead of actually formulating something actually useful.

What do you think about this new range? .

  • I know your first instance when it's really sunny is to strip off and enjoy the sun and while it's true you should enjoy the gorgeous days of summer you should be protecting yourself.

While we should be wearing sunscreen everyday it's especially important on beautiful sunny days like these.

You should be applying a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every 2/3 hours when you're out in direct sunlight.

It's recommended that you use at least 20p piece size of sunscren for your face. 
I absolutely love the @larocheposayuki Anthelios range especially the Fluid version of Anthelios. I also really like @colorescienceuk sunforgettable mineral SPF 50 powder for reapplication when wearing makeup.

  • There's this idea that somehow applying more of a product will get you better results but this isn't true.

The opposite is actually true if you apply more all you'll get is unnecessary irritation and it might put you off using a product.

When using actives try to follow the recommendations on the back of the packaging.

I know I've done this before when I first used AHAs and it didn't go well but I'm glad I eventually learned as my mum would say "I'm a bull in a China shop" 🤣🤣

  • *SKINCARE ROUTINE*
I thought I would mix up my routine a little bit lately.

Cleanser- @dermalogicauk  Special Cleanser - I love this little bottle it's great for using when at the gym. It's a basic cleanser that gets the job done.

Tone/Serum - @katesomervilleskincare Dermalquench Liquid Lift *gifted* -  I apply it straight after cleansing. This is a spray loaded with hyaluronic acid and oxygen, apparently it's meant to felt firm and smooth whilst quenching and plumping the skin hence the name. It really is amazing if I'm honest it's as if you're just wiping away any dehydration and puffiness.

Serum - @officialmedik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense *gifted* - Whilst I do feel like this is way too expensive for what it is I do really like it. Hydr8 is really hydrating and soothing Its great for using with a retinol as it helps to combat the dryness with the Natural  Moisturising Factors (NMF)

Treatment - @sundayriley A+ Retinoid Serum *gifted - This is a brand new retinoid to me I originally used Luna which was the first ever retinoid I used so I was pretty excited to try this out. it says it's 6% it's more like a 4/5% because there's no way the plant like ingredients actually constitute as retinol. Other than that I'm liking it it doesn't compare to Adapalene but it's still good.

Moisturiser - @stubborncosmetics Customised Moisturiser *gifted - I am freaking loving this moisturiser it's so good to have a different moisturiser for the different parts of my face. I'm amazed no one has had this idea before it's so simple yet genius! I have combination skin so there is a side for the dry patches and a side for the oily parts of my face. This is a truly balancing moisturiser ❤️

  • To be honest I only found this out recently and wanted to share it with all of you! 🙌🏼❤️ I remember back to early 2018 when I first used Adapalene I kind of went a little hamfisted and sensitised my skin for the couple weeks that followed I realised my skin wasn't as aggrevated when I would pat products into my skin.

From them on when I felt a bit sensitive I would pat everything on!

I also found that even when not sensitised if I pat on really strong actives there was no aggrevation compared to rubbing it in.
