Men's Skincare – Gatineau Skincare

      Men's Skincare

      This week we are celebrating International Men’s Health Week which leads appropriately to Father’s Day this coming Sunday, and sorting through the wealth of tacky Father’s Day gifts can be somewhat challenging especially if you want to give something both practical and meaningful. So, this year, why not consider elevating the fatherly figure in your life with some top-notch skincare products from Gatineau – you’ll easily score some brownie points AND you’ll seriously brighten their (and their skin’s) day!

      It’s no secret that the target audience for skincare products and cosmetics is generally women, however men are showing an increased interest in skincare too and as if there weren’t enough differences between men and women, their skin differs as well with testosterone, facial hair, and sebum being just the beginning of the story.  Men are ruled by testosterone which means their skin is typically thicker, oilier and hairier and this can result in enlarged pores and oily skin. Daily shaving can make skin prone to irritation or inflammation as well as causing dryness, redness, ingrown hairs and even hypersensitivity to products applied afterwards. So, whether your dad is a total beginner or a full on skinthusiast, the gift of healthy skin is one of the best Father’s Day gifts (and perfect opportunity to celebrate International Men’s Health Week) you could give, and I’ve pulled together a short list of some of my favourite picks he’s sure to love.  

      The key to every great skincare routine is cleansing! The perfect way to kickstart your morning routine or end your day, besides maintaining skin hygiene it helps eliminate dirt, oil, sweat and pollutants that can accumulate throughout the day. Radiance Enhancing Gelee Cleanser is a trusted face wash and a serious overachiever inside as it wipes skins slate clean without aggravation or irritation. A gel formula infused with fruit acids and Vitamin C, it is engineered to tackle men’s thicker skin types providing a seriously good bubble-up that works itself into a rich and creamy lather. Doubling up as a shaving medium thanks to its elite formula, it provides a comfortable and close shave of barber-shop quality too!

      For dad’s that love to hit the gym or go for a daily run, chances are they are breaking into a sweat on a regular basis, and this can create the perfect base for bacteria to reproduce leading to blocked pores and skin inflammation. To give their skin the best chance to shine treat them to Age Benefit Multi Acid Peel, a 10% strength fruit acid treatment that can emulate a facial from the comfort of their bathroom. Formulated to exfoliate, rejuvenate, and hydrate, this ‘power peel’ fuses the exfoliating powers of Glycolic, Lactic and Mandelic Acids and is a one-stop skin perfecting shop as it kickstarts cells to promote collagen production, while refining texture and tone AND promoting a luminous clear skin with less visible pores. The icing on the cake falls with the trendy dark grey packaging which exudes masculinity and will really appeal to his sense of style!

      Shaving, cold spells, stress and pollution can all wreak havoc on a man’s complexion and chances are his skin will be quite parched and rather sensitive. One of the best gifts you can present to him is Hydra Aura Water Cream, an absolute grooming essential and daily moisturiser that is designed to deliver all day hydration without leaving skin greasy or sticky. Refreshingly light and seriously thirst quenching, it has been turbo-charged with a Velvet Seaweed derived from Brittany which delivers round the clock moisture while shielding skin from environmental pollution, and a blend of Barbary Fig and Shea Butter to condition and protect.  With its weightless gel-cream texture it glides on effortlessly and produces an instant, cool sensation on contact leaving the complexion soothed and refreshed – now that’s what we call R & R!

      A lot of dad’s work really hard to provide for us and it can often take a toll on their skin from early rises to late nights. Introduce your dad to Renewing Peeling Gommage and I promise he’ll never look back. Unifying skincare and well-being, this enzymatic dual action exfoliator and mask is as invigorating as it is decadent.  Inspired by cold therapy, this cooling gel-cream mask is charged with refining enzymes to eliminate dead skin cells and impurities, Menthol to refresh tired looking skin and a plethora of nourishing oils to calm, protect and counteract flakiness. He will be looking AND feeling as ‘cool as a cucumber’ after a shot of this!

      Its never too late to start the best skincare routine for men or build on the one they’ve got so treat him to some Gatineau products that will work as hard as he does!
