It’s a man’s world!

Do men need a different skincare regime then woman?

Is a question I often get so I decided to write a post about it…

Men’s general skin care needs do in fact vary from those of women. “Men’s skin is about 25% thicker with more collagen, more and larger hair follicles and more sebum production, all of which is mostly due to increased testosterone production.
These differences make men’s skin less sensitive and able to handle stronger ingredients.
Men skin is also oilier, with a complex network of blood vessels that allows for easier cell repair.
However, it also makes them a bit more acne-prone, so they don’t need as heavy cream-based products,” men don’t show signs of aging quite as early as women do.

And men generally prefer fragrance-free, and products that are easy to use and generally like a more masculine” packaging.
whereas women tend to prefer pretty scents and longer, luxurious routines.

The key ingredients worth looking out for are:

Retinoids, peptides, antioxidants and so forth, they work across skin types of both genders. It’s worth knowing that men’s skin is different than women’s in its structure.
As such, her products aren’t going to do you any harm, but they probably won’t reap the instant results you were hoping for either.

But not all men are buying male-only brands. In fact, they often opt for unisex or female-targeted brands instead. In short, a lot of men still buy according to their needs rather than their gender.

Nowaday’s you have brands who opt for unisex packaging, so men don’t need to shy away from having a to frilly cream in their bathroom.

So the answer goes both ways

For a cleanser – day-or-night cream I would stick to the men’s or unisex department.
As advice always use a good facial cleanser, preferably an exfoliating one.
But for an eye-cream or a mask! Go ahead and start digging in your woman’s 100€ jar, but be warned cause she might not be too amused about it! 😉

New Dimension Firming + Fill eye System

Following the success of the New dimension Sculpting and contouring skincare, Estee Lauder came out with the New Dimension Firm + Fill eye system.

The products comes with two application processes

The top cream is a light gel texture, formulated with Estee Lauder’s Pro-Collagen Complex. It tightens, tones and hydrates the skin eye area.
The second cream is actually a filler with light–diffusing optics to instantly smooth the eye area, it smooth’s your eye skin and it looks firmer and strengthened.

I love the feeling

I get from the first eye gel, it’s cooling and tightening and what I love too is that you can use it day and night.
The second cream fills fine lines; use it very sparingly because it has a heavy texture, so you don’t need a lot to make it work :)
Pat, it under your eye skin area, and see how it works wonders and sets you off with a healthy wide awake look.
After this, you can use your concealer if you want to.

I’m really ecstatically happy with Estee Lauder’s New Dimension Firm + Fill Eye system, it’s easy to use and it works fast.
Try it out and let me know what you think about it!
