Here’s a message for you, men – it’s okay to care about your skin! Seriously. We know you spent your childhood watching grown men simply shave and pat on some aftershave, but there’s a much better way to treat your skin.
A man’s skin is tough (yes, we know) and is generally about 10 percent thicker than the skin on a woman. It’s also oilier, due to testosterone, which means men typically don’t show signs of aging early on but tend to age more quickly once the process sets in. Men’s skincare is formulated with more concentrated and powerful cleansers and moisturizers to reach beyond that thick skin right down to the pores, and to better balance natural oil production. Because of this (and so many other reasons that you will thank us for later), it’s better to use products specifically formulated for men rather than steal dollops from your significant other’s coveted collection of cleansers and moisturizers.
Picking out your own skincare isn’t so hard, and it doesn’t have to break the bank, either. Every Man Jack offers an incredible line of naturally derived formulas that work great, look great, and are absolutely affordable. Even better, Every Man Jack has every product you need to cover your body from head to toe – which means there’s no need to search and no guesswork. And for those history buffs, their namesake actually comes from an old war cry that gathered men together.
Speaking of gathering men together, we have a public service announcement. Do you know how to shave? We mean really, truly, properly shave? Your razor acts a bit like microdermabrasion. It thickens the skin slightly, but also dries out the skin during the process making it more porous and sensitive. So, we asked Every Man Jack to share their best tips for a proper shave:
Step One. Wash Your Face.
You heard right! You might feel fresh and clean, but your pores are hiding unwanted oil and debris. So start things right by washing your face with warm water immediately before shaving (or shave immediately after you shower). This step also softens the skin and relaxes the hair follicles. We recommend using Every Man Jack’s Face Wash in Signature Mint.
Step Two. Apply Product.
Here’s the step you know and love, because you were actually doing one thing right already. Every Man Jack offers both a Shave Gel and a Shave Cream, so take your pick.
Step Three. Shave.
Obviously, this is the step you don’t want to rush. Make sure you’re using a clean, sharp razor and don’t forget to replace your blade every 5 to 10 shaves. We recommend Every Man Jack’s Chrome Razor which offers a lubricating strip infused with olive oil, chamomile, and other herbal extracts.
Step Four. Wash Your Face, Again.
Yes, drop the towel because it is not time to dry yet. Washing your face with cold, clean water will help close up your pores and soothe your skin. So don’t be in such a rush.
Step Five. Apply Face Lotion.
Forget the alcohol-based aftershave of your father’s generation. Moisturizer is essential to balance the drying effect shaving has on your skin. It hydrates and protects your skin, and has the added bonus of making your skin very (ahem) approachable. We recommend Every Man Jack Face Lotion.
Beyond shaving, Every Man Jack offers a wide array of products, including shampoo (+ conditioner), styling aids, body wash, deodorant, body lotion, and more.
