Men’s Health Week: Shining a light on optimal skin health for men

Men’s Health Week is an annual campaign designed to increase the awareness of health and wellness in men.

As the body’s largest organ, we already know that skin health is just as important to overall wellness as any other part of the body.

While men’s skincare routines used to be much simpler than their female counterparts, as the importance of skin health becomes better known, long gone are the days of a quick shave and a splash of cologne. Today , men are paying more attention to their skin and the products they use than ever before.

Despite men’s skin being up to 25% thicker than women’s, skin cellular function doesn’t discriminate between genders. To honour Men’s Health Week, we’re shining a light on some typically male skin concerns and our Biologi solution.

Let’s go!

Acne and oily complexion

If a male is prone to higher testosterone levels, the result is an increase in sebum production. Too much oil produced in the sebaceous glands can mix with bacteria and dead skin causing breakouts and, in extreme cases, acne.

While acne is usually a problem that begins in the teenage years, because it’s driven by the male hormone, if a man is susceptible to over-production, oily skin and breakouts are unlikely to just pass with time.

Men’s skincare solution

Cleansing the face daily with Bc Refresh Cleanser can reduce redness and irritation. Follow cleansing with Bd Luminosity Serum, extract of Davidson plum containing tartaric acid. The natural enzyme exfoliant works to gently clear pores of sebum and debris that leads to breakouts. The potent combination helps keep pores clear and reduce irritation leading to calmer skin.

Ingrown hairs

Regular shaving can become the bane of a man’s life! Constant movement of the razor can cause a change in the direction of hair growth so they turn back on themselves. While ingrown hairs can rectify themselves naturally, they can also lead to spots and become infected if the follicle becomes inflamed.

Men’s skincare solution

Regular exfoliation with Bx Reveal can remove dead skin cells and debris to keep the pores clear and give the hairs a clear path outwards. Combine Bx Reveal with Bc Refresh Cleanser for a triple-acting regular treatment that reduces redness and builds vital antioxidant protection to strengthen the skin.

While Bx Reveal can help avoid ingrown hairs, if a hair follicle does become infected from an ingrown hair, avoid exfoliation and seek advice from a medical professional.

Sensitised skin

Traditionally, men’s skincare routines involve applying aftershave after shaving. Essentially, this means applying irritating fragrance and alcohol to open pores. Helloooo, irritation and redness!

The alcohol can also dry out the cells disturbing the skin’s natural hydrating processes leaving the skin dry and potentially reactive to products. OUCH!

Men’s skincare solution

To repair sensitised skin, firstly remove the aftershave from the routine. Apply to a handkerchief or wrists rather than the neck. If you must apply cologne, do so well after shaving to avoid irritating delicate pores.

If the skin is sensitised, the first step should be repairing the damaged protective layer. Introduce Bf Restore Face & Body Serum. The potent source of active nutrients such as tryptophan, vitamin C and ferulic acid work together to hydrate the skin, reduce redness and repair cellular function.

Introduce Bc Refresh Cleanser as an alternative to harsh cleansers that can disturb the skin’s hydrating processes and cause further irritation.

Shaving rash

A shaving rash occurs as an inflammatory response to ongoing pressure on sensitive skin. Typically, the only way to avoid the rash has been to avoid shaving. And we know that beards aren’t for everyone!

Men’s skincare solution

Use Bc Refresh Cleanser as a shaving foam for a two-fold result.

Firstly, the extract of soapberry cleanser reduces the exposure to irritating synthetics such as fragrance and surfactants traditionally found in shaving foam. Secondly, the revolutionary product reduces redness and builds antioxidant potential so the skin can better withstand the pressure of the razor.

After shaving, apply Bd Luminosity Serum, an active source of quercetin that can reduce redness and help soothe shaving affected skin.

The skin is the largest organ. While a man’s skin is traditionally thicker than a woman’s, every cell functions in the same way and deserves to be treated well for optimal skin health.

Biologi products are proudly gender-neutral, free from artificial fragrance and treat the skin on a cellular level for faster, more noticeable and longer-lasting results. To shop for men’s skincare, visit our website today.
