Mars and Venus Skincare
We hear so much about how different men and women are from one another. From how we process information, to the ability to multitask (or not!), to the defined roles of each gender. Luckily for us, these differences and generalizations are starting to break down and merge, and skincare is just another avenue where the differences aren’t as large as we think.
All Inclusive Skincare
First and foremost, skincare is not just for women. In my medical aesthetics practice, there is an increasing number of men that come into my clinic, and it’s for the exact same reasons that women do. EVERYONE wants to feel better in their skin, and it's my honor to help people come up with strategies and solutions to do just that.
It doesn’t matter if you are a man, a woman, or anything in between, the health of your skin needs to be tended to on a continual basis. We’re all dealing with the implications from an increasingly toxic world, where we come into contact with a host of damaging properties on a daily basis. This elevated exposure puts the health of our body and skin at risk.
Top Skincare Needs For ALL Genders
Here are the top points to consider regarding what every person needs in quality skincare, NO MATTER WHAT!
- An increase in cellular turnover via AHA’s, BHA’s, and potent forms of Vitamin A like Retinaldehyde. This helps to amp up your skin exfoliation as it naturally dwindles with age.
- A boost in collagen production. This is the key to plump skin with a refined texture that is the hallmark of healthy functioning skin. Ingredients like Bio Peptides and Vitamin C help to increase and repair collagen synthesis for radiant, youthful skin..
- Last and certainly not least is sun protection. The sun’s harmful rays do great damage to the skin, as well as increase your chances of skin cancer exponentially. Using a high grade vitamin C product in the morning, along with a potent physical sunblock with zinc oxide, is a must for everyone, everyday.
Knowing that these three themes are the entry to resilient, healthy skin, our hope is to offer great skincare solutions for all genders and skin types. In the month of June, (calling all Dads who deserve to put their best face forward!) we are offering a promotion of a 120ML Purifying Wash, a 30ML C-Radiance Moisturizer, and a ELTA-MD sunblock for 20% off the set.
A Pro Tip: Men who shave their face regularly enjoy a higher level of cell turnover than those who don’t. This leads to healthier, timeless skin in the long haul! For those who don’t shave their face, go into a highly trained medical aesthetics practice for a monthly dermaplane facial to enjoy the benefits of a freshly exfoliated face!
