How to Look After Your Skin
Male skin is generally thicker than female skin and because of higher testosterone levels men are more prone to oiliness and acne breakouts.
Men also have to contend with rough, dry textured skin due to daily aggression from regular shaving which increases the skin's sensitivity and decreases elasticity. Furthermore the elements, hard water and pollution combined with an active lifestyle and the absence of a skin care programme can quickly take their toll on the skin.
There are plenty of products on the market today that will help address specific male skin concerns such as painful in-growing hairs, sensitivity, post-shaving irritation, folliculitis, dryness, severe acne and ageing concerns. So there is no need to suffer any longer!
For your anti-ageing concerns look for products that contain caviar which is loaded with protein, vitamins and minerals with a cell format similar to human skin. Caviar helps to speed up the natural production of collagen, and in time this plumps and thickens the skin giving a younger, firmer appearance.
For post-shaving irritation, folliculitis and sensitivity, look for products that contain green tea and arnica which contain anti-inflammatory properties and will soothe irritated skin.
Pevonia's Men's Line uses green tea, arnica and ginkgo biloba in the Easy Glide Shaving Emulsion. The combination of these key ingredients leave the skin oil-free and velvety smooth without any irritability. The non-foaming formula works by adhering to the skin and hair (thus protecting it) facilitating a smooth glide of the razor, and a silkier, smoother close shave, without irritation.
