A new survey by carfinance247.co.uk has revealed that men are the vainest sex. The survey discovered that the average British male (aged 17-50) checks themselves out in the mirror up to 24 times a day, versus women’s 11 times.
While women listed their top reasons for looking in the mirror as make-up application (81 per cent); to check they don’t have food in their teeth or smudged mascara (63 per cent) and to check and titivate hair (45 per cent), the majority of men (56 per cent) confessed they do it simply to admire themselves.
With this in mind, we have found that over recent years men have been taking a much more active interest in skincare. Rumour even has it that Prince Harry carried a world-famous moisturising cream in his kit bag during his Walking with the Wounded expedition to the South Pole.
When it comes to men’s skincare, it is important to bear in mind that their skin is typically thicker and less prone to irritation than women’s, while it can also age faster, leading to the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and fine lines.
Here at Skinstation, a range we recommend for men is the Obagi Nu-Derm-System. It is specifically designed to transform the appearance of skin while minimising signs of ageing and is also ideal for anyone who has:
· Age spots
· Rough skin
· Sallow (yellowish) complexion
· Hyper pigmentation (discolouration)
There are many different products within this range, including a cleanser to remove excess dirt and oil and an un-scented moisturiser that hydrates the skin, leaving it feeling fresh and giving it a healthy glow. There’s also a broad spectrum sun screen available which is ideal for defence against the sun’s harmful UV rays, as an appropriately factored sun screen is something every man can do to reduce the appearance of ageing skin.
After using the Nu-Derm system, skin will be smooth, naturally hydrated, evenly coloured and more resilient – it will look and feel healthier and younger.
