We as don’t take care of our skin as well as we should, yes, we slack behind the opposite sex. But we forget that our skin is just as important as having that essential navy suit in your closet. However, its never too late to start a skin care routine. There are so many mens skin care items out there that are great and affordable but there aren’t enough that are ethical and using all natural ingredients.
What I mean by ethical is that they do not use all the toxins that we find in many of the other skin care brands out there. To mention a few of these toxins: Parabens, Toluene, Oxybenzone, along with others. You may be wondering, dude why are you mentioning all this stuff, well because there is a great brand out there Oars + Alps that are revolutionizing the skin care game.
Oars + Alps products are free of aluminum, alcohol, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, talc, cruelty (that’s right cruelty) and more. Their products have amazing natural ingredients such aloe vera, juniper berries, volcanic sand, and activated charcoal, to name a few. I have used these items for about 2 weeks and let me tell you they have been really great items to add to my skin care routine. Now that you have the background to their ingredients lets go over some Oars + Alps items that I believe men need in their skin care armory.
1. Bar Soap
Yes, bar soap. As guys, when we look for body wash or bar soap we don’t understand what we are getting we usually just pick it because of one or two things (if there is more, leave a comment below) 1. it smells good, 2. We saw a sweet commercial on TV or social media and we got sold on it. We don’t even look at the ingredients (I’ve done this, no shame)! But, that’s why Oars + Alps has this amazing bar soap that is designed for exfoliation and deep cleaning, purges your skin of dead skin cells, sweat and bacteria.
Guys you have to be moisturizing your face, its what everyone sees and could even me your money maker. Be keeping your face moisturized you not only avoid dry skin and even breakouts but you also avoid, looking older (anti-aging). Oars + Alps Face + Eye Cream is what you need to make you look amazing everyday and helps with the bags under those eyes which is amazing! Also, remember to drink lots of water to help with all this as well.
As you all know I recently had a baby (Emilia shes the love of my life), as everyone knows the first few weeks to month, they hardly sleep and it sucks. That being mentioned I am so lucky that I wear glasses sometimes because I carry some heavy bags under my eyes some days. However, I have been using the Oars+ Alps Wake Up Eye Stick the last two weeks and its been working miracles. The Wake Up Eye Stick contains Caffeine to help de-puff the bags under your eyes, reduce fine lines and dark circles, brighten and cool. If you’ve had a long night you need this for the next day, your welcome.
4. Natural Deodorant
Now you might be thinking, deodorant really? Yes, you need this deodorant in your life Bob! This is a powerful natural deodorant that uses cornstarch to absorb odors, while botanicals nourish the skin and mask body odor. Heres how this deodorant works within the first five weeks of use, I thought this was so cool:
1st Week: No odor.
2nd Week: Odor detox starts with your body producing an odor. Your pits are purging all of the toxins and bacteria that lurk under your arms. Don't stop using!.
3rd Week: You'll sweat more, but smell less. As your pits purge the toxins and bacteria, your body sweats more.
4th Week: Odor decreases. Congrats on detoxing those pits.
5th Week: Your pits are in paradise.
