Men's Health Month, Movember, Where It's Good for Both the Goose & the Gander.

By Laura Medina

Because men's dermis tend to be thicker and harsher, their skincare formula tend to be stronger and more concentrated, which for ladies, means more potent, more effective, quicker.  Plus, guys' stuff tend to be fragrance-free, no smell, just results.

Movember, Men's Health Month, is now a good enough time to care both the men in your life and yourself, share and share alike.

For ingrown facial hair for guys and deep-set cystic acne "stress" pimples, how to get rid off without scarring you all's face?

Deep Dive® Glycolic Facial Cleanser with Kaolin Clay & Volcanic Ash's Glycolic Acid 
will eat up the extraneous gunk clogging up your pores then naturally release the built-up oil while Kaolin Clay will soak up the oil; as Volcanic Ash, together with Oatmeal, scrub and exfoliate the dead skin and the polluted oil away as Vitamin E heals the freshly-scrubbed dermis right back.

Since guys are all about efficiency and effectiveness, Deep Dive® Glycolic Facial Cleanser with Kaolin Clay & Volcanic Ash is a spa in an easy squeeze out of a $20 tube.

Now, that your dermis is baby smooth and soft, you need to pamper it even more to keep it that way.

Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 with Blue Algae Extract & Sea Parsley is a sunscreen with benefits, as it should be, being one of the new crop of sunscreens with extra boosters of antioxidants and vitamins to further nourish the skin.

This SPF 20 sunscreen is really is double-duty.  It's a two in one bottle space-saver.  While the SPF 20 protects, Blue Algae extract, a rich source of vitamin E, helps keep skin supple and reduce inflammation and redness.   Sea Parsley, a potent anti-irritant, contains a combination of naturally occurring vitamins (A & C) and minerals which work together to improve skin appearance.  Certified Organic Edelweiss and Plantago Leaf Extracts act as antioxidants and help enhance collagen synthesis.  Phospholipids bind moisture to the skin and support the natural skin barrier.

Guess all these good stuff formulas are packed in a lightweight moisturizer without oiliness or heaviness, that last.

All this good stuff in a $28 bottle.

This Gen-X scribe personally dabs this peptide & Omega-3 protein serum on "crinkles & crow's feet" for emerging wrinkles around the delicate eye area.

Peptides are chains of amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that are essential to human life. They function as messengers in the skin, allowing the epidermis and dermis to communicate more efficiently. As we age, communication diminishes within the skin resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. Peptides improve cell communication by sending specific signals that affect skin's response.

Matrixyl 3000® is an advanced collagen boosting peptide shows up to 45% less wrinkles in two months, great for wrinkles.

SYN®-AKE is an advanced myo-relaxing peptide that smoothes expression lines yielding up to a 52% reduction in wrinkles.* Mimics the activity of Walgerin 1, a peptide found in the snake venom of the Temple Viper.

Renovage® is a patented anti-aging ingredient that lessens pigmented spots by up to 56%, increases moisturization up to 58%.*

Organic Omega-3 Fatty Acids provides essential fatty acids and proteins to soothe and brighten skin  soothes and brightens skin.

Dynalift® is a natural Sorghum Stalk Juice tightens and smooths skin.

Organic Green Tea is a natural antioxidant that counters free-radicals.

A silky liquid texture, non-clogging serum potion in a $62 pump.

It's multifunctional formula that works two ways: Use it alone or mix the super concentrated formula with your favorite moisturizer, daily sunscreen or post shave gel for an easy, quick boost of clinical strength anti-aging ingredients, essential vitamins and antioxidants.

Not bad for a $62 bottle.
