WHY YOUR SKIN NEEDS VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is something of a powerhouse – and not just for fending off colds. Just as Vitamin C is an essential part of your diet, it is also an important step in your skincare routine.

One of the few proven anti-ageing skincare ingredients (it encourages collagen production), Vitamin C can improve visible signs of discoloration, sun damage and scarring. It is also a powerful antioxidant, so helps defend skin against further environmental damage (such as sunburn) caused by free radicals.

And with summer just around the corner now is the right time to add a Vitamin C serum (serums are lighter and easier to absorb than moisturisers) to your grooming regimen.

Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate – with a whopping 12.5% Vitamin C will give your skin the much needed post-winter-pre-summer boost it most likely needs.

PORE CONTROL

While it is largely genetics that determine pore size – pore appearance is most affected by hygiene; neglecting your skincare routine causes oil, dead skin cells and dirt to clog the pores, stretching them out and making them appear larger.

Worse yet, as the years pass the skin loses its elasticity and pores clogged with sebum, dirt and dead skin appear even larger than before.

The Kiehl’s Rare Earth range, formulated with Amazonian White Clay (exceptionally rich in mineral salts, absorbs impurities and acts as a natural antibiotic) offers a selection of products to tackle enlarged and dirty pores while keeping pore size to a minimum.

Grooming: EYE CARE | DESKPROOF YOUR EYES

Written by | Found in: Grooming | Posted on: 7 Aug 2018 - 3:57 pm

DESKPROOF YOUR EYES

Ever walked into the office first thing in the morning after a good nights sleep and a colleague greets you with, “Wow, big night? You look so tired!”

Dark circles and puffy, tired looking eyes are not only a manifestation of lack of sleep or a boozy night out. Eight hours a day at the office squinting at a computer and subjected to dry, conditioned air takes just as much toll on the way your eyes look and feel.

We’ve put together a selection of eye care products specifically designed to target and minimise puffy eyes, dark circles, wrinkles and hopefully, unsolicited remarks from your colleagues too!

MAINTAIN YOUR MANE

There was a time when men who spent too long ”doing” their hair were met with a certain degree of mockery or suspicion. Thankfully times have changed, but now it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the influx of hair care products on the market. And the right hair product can make all the difference.

Hair products for men today have come a long way since the wet-look gels of the eighties, so make sure you’re clued up on what each product does. Thicker hair and messy styles can handle waxes and pomades, but if your hair’s thinner, then lighter products and sprays will give your mane some staying power.

Lock, Stock & Barrel offers a terrific selection of quality men’s hair products – from shampoos to hair treatments plus all the styling agents you could possibly need to achieve those runway coifs!

OIL: WHY YOU NEED IT

The best way to think of facial oil is as a turbo boost for your existing routine. They’re concentrated products, so they’re ideal if you’re looking to problem-solve something specific like ageing, post-shave damage, dehydration, etc.

Oil also has a much smaller molecular structure than a cream, which means it’s going to penetrate deeper into the skin and hence more likely to do something worthwhile at a cellular level.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a rich and luxurious blend of essential oils and botanicals including lavender oil, evening primrose oil and olive-derived squalane, is designed to enhance your skin’s natural nightly recovery process, restoring tone and vitality.

It’s also not overly scented and surprisingly – doesn’t leave skin looking oily.
