Traditionally beauty products have been seen as the preserve of women yet the worldwide male grooming market was estimated at $55bn in 2020 and it continues to grow. Here at O'Connor's online pharmacy we have a great range of products to help men look and feel good.
With today's often stressful lifestyle, men can suffer from skin problems like acne, dark circles, wrinkles and eczema. Those who have an active lifestyle or who work out on a regular basis are more likely to suffer from such skincare issues. While regular exercise is good for body and mind, sweat after the work out can clog pores which in turn causes skin problems. The good news is that this can be easily managed.
A common misconception is that chemical products can cure skin problems; instead some of these products cause irritation and further problems for sensitive skin. It is very important to carefully choose the products that you use on your skin. Our online pharmacy has a great range of male skin products from Clarins and Nuxe. For example Clarins soap free Exfoliating Cleanser helps to clear out the impurities that clog pores and leave the skin looking grey and dull.
With long hours, stress, and managing a work life balance, men can often suffer from under eye bags, dark circles and wrinkles. Use hydrating eye-creams and firming serums that are made from natural ingredients to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
With Movember just gone, men across the world have been growing moustaches and beards in support of male health issues. It is important is to understand how to maintain these. In most cases, natural beard and shaving products are ideal for keeping beards soft and keeping the skin underneath flake-free and hydrated. Use aloe vera based moisturisers or pure aloe vera as it cools and calms the skin with a soothing effect, especially after shaving. Choose hydrating oils with jojoba and argan to keep beards soft and skin healthy.
Bath products with chemicals can cause skin irritation and allergies. It is often best to choose products with shea butter, aloe vera and lavender as they have a nourishing and soothing effect on the skin.
Vitamin A and C are very effective in keeping the skin radiant as their astringent properties minimise pores and keep oils levels balanced.
Male grooming is now considered as important as a well curated wardrobe. Be the man who likes to look after himself at all times and have a daily routine for his grooming habits. This will not only make you look good in public but will boost your self-confidence.
