Lets wrap up this month of the man! We started with a Tom Ford quote, remember? (If not, now is a good time to head back to the beginning of April and catch up!) So as he is a force to be reckoned with as far as male beauty goes, lets finish the month with him! Why? Stay tuned and we will do a u-turn and end up back chatting Ford (Tom Ford that is).
Think of this blog as a sort of sports replay. The highlights of the game, if you will, where we remind you about what we have discussed and will project what we would like to see going forward. So far this month we have budgeted your time when leaving your house (or man cave) to protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun. We have discussed at length how polishing your car or motorcycle is the hands on hobby version of polishing your own skin, aka exfoliation. We have warned you about where to, and not to, apply cologne (remember? less is more, don’t put it where the sun shines or you will have some discoloured skin to live with) We had that math lesson where spf15 + spf15 did not equal spf30; that was so 2 weeks ago, and we assume that you have picked up an spf30 by now? If not, run (don’t walk) to 803 Davie Street in downtown VanCity or 1940 Lonsdale Ave, Suite 101, North Van to pick one up from our knowledgeable and friendly staff!
So lets lay out the practical “business” on how to tie this months tips together!
We recommend (and carry) the ZO line of products. They are a staff and client favourite across the board! Going forward we want to see you in person, we want to meet you and we want you to be one of our VIP clients, just like the ladies of Vancouver! You don’t need to commit a lot in the way of time or money for us to help you with your man maintenance going forward!
With summer basically having arrived, it brings the beautiful west coast weather. Beautiful on the beach, but less then ideal for your skin as it will tend to be a little oilier on average to start, and seem far worse in the summer heat!
Lets hope that, like Tom Ford, you have a nice daily schedule that includes taking care of yourself, your skin, your diet, and maybe this season you will budget some time for an in office visit every few weeks or month as our technicians will recommend! What would they be prescribing? Most likely a nice, and pain free, in office microdermabrasion treatment (thats fancy shop talk for physical exfoliation, and trust us, your skin will thank you!) We will probably send you home with some of ZO’s TE-Pads which you can use to keep your skin well cleansed between office visits as well as nicely maintaining any oily bits that might rear their head and seem like more of a burden in the summer heat. Really simply, they will remove dead skin cells, your pores will be deeply cleaned, and any inflammation or irritation will hit the road, so to speak.
To all of our male clients and readers, we hope you have enjoyed us focusing on you this month! Drop us a line with any questions! If our series of man blogs was clear as mud, then feel free to consider yourself a skin expert and give us a call to enlist us as your maintenance team at 604.638.SKIN (7546)
