As a vast generalisation, there are a few different types of fellas in this world. Those who spend quite a bit of time looking in the mirror (the Sexy Fella). Some who secretly look in the mirror (the Shy Fella) and those who don’t even own a mirror (the Cruisy Fella). But whatever fella you are or know, you should always look after your skin. So in this article, we will give some great recommendations when choosing skin care for men.
The Sexy Fella
This fella knows what he wants, and he goes after it. His personal appearance is very important to him and he doesn’t mind spending money on himself. This fella is very particular about his personal grooming, and he already owns skin care. Probably just a cleanser and a moisturiser or aftershave balm, which is most likely very expensive, fragrant and bought from an exclusive department store. While this fella smells great, he doesn’t realise that he is using toxic chemicals on his skin. These will create free radicals and cause premature ageing (not what this kinda fella wants!) There are a lot of great products for the Sexy Fella that he will love. He’ll notice some great results in a short amount of time.
Skin care for men combining luxury and aesthetics
Because this fella loves luxury and aesthetics, it is just as important for him to have his skin care in beautiful packaging. As this fella wants to maintain his masculinity, he’ll prefer a range that looks ‘manly’. Because only the very best will do, CosMedix Elite is perfect for the Sexy Fella.
These products are next level in terms of active ingredients and results. They also come in sleek black bottles that ooze luxury and look amazing on his bathroom shelves. The Sexy Fella needs the following products:
- CosMedix Elite Gentle Clean to cleanse away the days grime.
- CosMedix Elite Pepoxide to fight wrinkles and free radical damage.
- CosMedix Elite Refine Rx to completely resurface and keep him looking young and sexy.
- CosMedix Humidify to moisturise and firm.
- CosMedix Hydrate + to protect from the sun.
Just when you think this fella cannot get any sexier, the results he will achieve in this skin care will have you amazed!
The Shy Fella
This Fella wants to look good, but he doesn’t want anyone to know. He looks in the mirror in complete privacy. Often stealing your skin care when you’re not looking. As a modern man with old fashioned values, he puts on a ‘blokey-bloke’ facade. On the inside, he is quite the metro. While he may have a hipster beard, he trims it with great precision. He likes nice things, but he can be frugal. He may not see the value in spending a lot on himself. Likely he is the chino and shirt kind of fella. Making an effort to look nice, but doesn’t spend as much time and money on himself as the Sexy Fella.
Likes skin care for men but avoids purchasing
The Shy Fella has good personal hygiene. Owning a few products like hair and beard wax, a moisturiser and maybe even a few carefully hidden pore strips.
He would definitely be happy to use more skin care if it was bought for him but won’t be seen purchasing them. The Shy Fella needs the following products:
- Aspect Dr ABC Kit (everything he needs with all the instructions provided!)
- Aspect Hydra Shield for sun protection and a daily moisturiser!
The Cruisy Fella
There is certainly something endearing about this kinda fella. He really doesn’t care about what others think and that is probably why he is so endearing. If he works in trades, he probably has a ‘tradie tan’, often wears no shirt on a hot day and might even have a few tattoos. He loves life and he’s all about the good times, but he certainly doesn’t worry about his skin… which if he keeps going shirtless will end up leathery and wrinkled. This fella is a bit of a larrikin and if his mates found out that you bought him skin care, he would get a real ribbing (not that he would care).
Skin needs TLC, but he’ll keep it super simple
So the only skincare this fella does is when he puts his face under the shower. He might have decent skin, but on a closer look, he has copped a decent amount of sun damage in his time and he has blackheads on his nose.
This fella needs a bit of TLC, but it’ll have to be super simple with limited steps. The Cruisy Fella needs more than the following products, but as he won’t use them, just these two for him:
- Aspect Purastat 5 Cleanser – pump action for fast cleansing
- Aspect Envirostat – sunblock that dries fast and feels like you’re not wearing it.
All fellas will benefit from looking after their skin!
