Men: how to look younger in ten minutes

There are several tips that every guy should follow if they want to appear their absolute best. A skincare routine is not just for women, as men want to look and feel good too! A few simple steps added to a man’s daily routine will really make a difference to how their skin looks and feels. Here are our suggestions:

Moisturise

If there’s one thing your skin will thank you for, its hydration. A good moisturiser can make the world of difference to your skin. It will nourish, soften and smooth your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dehydration. griffin+row Nourish is formulated with antioxidants to fight free radicals. Free radicals are essentially charged particles that cause the destruction of cells, resulting in a faster ageing process. Free radicals increase with outside factors, such as a poor diet, smoking, pollution and UV damage. To reduce the effects of damage on the skin, an antioxidant rich moisturiser is highly recommended.

Antioxidants help to slow down the ageing process and applying a moisturiser all over your face in the morning and evening will reduce pigmentation, wrinkles and an uneven skin tone.

Treat your eyes

Your eyes can show your real age so preventing signs of ageing in this area is highly beneficial. If you only have a few minutes to spare for a quick skincare product, make sure its eye cream. A hydrating, firming eye cream will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles; all of which can make you appear older that you actually are.

Tip: our products Nourish and Enrich are both safe and effective to use around your eyes. Always treat the skin around your eyes very, very gently as it is so delicate.

Use SPF

Sun damage is one of the main factors of premature ageing. Before exposing your skin to the sun, ensure you wear a high SPF which will prevent sun burn and damage to the skin occurring.

Exfoliate and look radiant

A flawless complexion will knock years off your real age. It’s not just women who crave radiant skin. A smooth and clear complexion can do wonders for men too. If you have ten minutes for a skincare routine then make sure you use an exfoliant. An exfoliant will buff away dead skin cells on the surface of the skin to reveal a fresher, smoother and softer complexion. It will also reduce visible signs of ageing and damage from the sun.

Tip: Try the griffin+row natural exfoliant cloth for natural and gentle exfoliation.

Massage

Massaging a skincare product into your skin is a simple, quick and effective method for easing those fine lines. Massaging your face increases blood flow to firm, plump and give a radiant glow. You can use an oil or a natural moisturiser like griffin+row Nourish, which is packed with macadamia, avocado, rosehip and sweet orange oils. Just apply Nourish to your hands and gently apply pressure to your face with your palms. Use small, subtle movements until the product is fully absorbed into the skin.

griffin+row products have a lovely natural scent and can be used by both men and women.
