It can be challenging as men to follow a consistent skincare routine. The trick is keeping it simple, fast and easy to use.
Introducing the versatility of a face oil. They work in a variety of ways, from shaving to moisturizing. This one step can make tired, dry skin more vibrant and healthy looking.
Men tend to have larger pores and oilier skin. It may seem counterintuitive but a face oil can actually combat excess oily skin by regulating oil and sebum production. Some oils, while rich, can be fast absorbing and leave skin glowing, not shiny or greasy.
Face oils, applied alone or along with a light moisturizer, help to hydrate, fight signs of aging, and support the skin barrier.
Ingredients like Rosehip, Clary Sage and Frankincense soothe and protect the skin while evening out the skin tone.
YOUR BEARD WILL THANK YOU
Face oils can also double as a beard oil. It moisturizes and softens beard hair while nourishing the skin beneath it. Applying an oil will leave facial hair softer and fuller, plus leave a bit of a healthy sheen.
The other benefit is that face oil formulated with essential oils leaves a fantastic scent on the hair and skin all day to enjoy.
SO WHICH ONE DO I GET?
Barbara Guillaume – groomer to Leonardo DiCaprio, Milo Ventimiglia, James McAvoy, and Hugh Grant, to name a few – and Amy Komorowski – groomer to Adam Driver, Eddie Redmayne, Richard Madden, and many others – created their CIRCA 1970 Luxury Face Oil precisely with these benefits in mind.
