Who needs good skincare?
Good skincare is something we all need. This applies to children and adults, young and old. And both women and men can benefit from caring for their skin in the right way. What we need varies depending on our age, gender, skin type, skin condition and the challenges we face.
And there's definitely a big difference in how much we prioritise daily skincare. For example, there is typically a big difference in the attention women and men pay to their skincare. Despite the fact that it's important for both genders.
So what is good skincare? In short, it's when you take good care of your skin based on your skin's specific needs.
If you suffer from eczema, impure skin, acne, hives, cold sores, psoriasis or any other skin condition, you need to take extra care of your skin, because your skin needs extra skin care and attention. But even people with perfect skin and no skin problems need to take care of their skin.

Different skin types require different types of skincare. But whether your skin is dry, oily, blemished, sensitive, allergic, combination or normal, you can do a lot to look after it yourself.
Focus on skincare products
There is an abundance of skincare products on the market and it can be a bit of a jungle to navigate. It's easy to buy a lot of products. But more is not necessarily better. And you're not guaranteed high quality by buying some expensive creams. Unfortunately, it isn't. Also, remember that creams only work when they're used. Create a good skincare routine with the creams you use to get the best results.
The most important thing is to find a few good products that do something good for your skin and that you enjoy using. Skincare products should be suitable for your skin type so that your skin is moisturised, cleansed and cared for optimally. And it should be easy, manageable and manageable in a busy day.
The many different cosmetics companies all have plenty of skincare products on their shelves. But if you're an organic foodie, you might also be one of those who prefer organic or natural ingredients on the skin and skincare without parabens, perfumes and mineral oils.
Fortunately, nowadays there are plenty of options to choose organic skincare or natural skincare, also known as alternative skincare, over traditional skincare. However, it's important to remember that organic and natural skincare is not necessarily better and healthier for your skin. Organic ingredients and plant extracts can easily trigger allergies in the same way that traditional products can. However, organic and natural skincare is not as full of chemicals as traditional products typically are.
In organic skincare, a large proportion of the natural ingredients are organic and therefore grown without the use of pesticides and fertilisers. But not all ingredients are necessarily organic. And not all ingredients are necessarily natural ingredients either. In natural skincare, the ingredients are mainly plants, herbs and oils from nature. They may or may not be organic.
Both organic and natural skincare contain primarily natural ingredients such as plant oils, essential oils and plant extracts. Overall, organic and alternative products are free from synthetic colours and fragrances, mineral oils, parabens and silicones.
Some of the ingredients commonly used in organic and/or natural skincare are Tea Tree Oil, Aloe Vera, salt, honey, sandalwood, argan oil, olive oil and sunflower oil.
If you want to be sure about what you're putting on your skin, you can make your own homemade skincare. It takes time, but at least you know what's in the mix.
Homemade skincare is based on old folk remedies about what works in different situations. Most home remedies date back to a time when there was no cosmetic skincare and people used natural herbs and plants to care for their skin.
Many of the traditional skin care products you can buy do contain herbs and plants, but they also contain a lot of other things that you might want to avoid, which you can avoid by making your own skin care products.
Online, you can find many different natural skincare recipes to make your own homemade creams and cleansers. There are also many recipes for homemade face masks that you can quickly make with just a few natural ingredients.
These include honey, lemon, egg, cinnamon, banana, apple, avocado, carrot, yoghurt, pomegranate, ginger and many more. The different fruits and ingredients are individually - or together - good for different skin types.
However, it is recommended to buy one of the recognised face masks for those with impure skin, pimples and blackheads, which you can find at pharmacies, Boots and our online store.

Skincare for men
Men's skin needs skincare, just like women's skin does. But many men don't want to do that. And they certainly don't want to use products that look feminine and smell delicate and sweet. Luckily, there are many products that are specifically aimed at men. These are masculine skincare products that are quick and easy to use. And most men quickly realise that it's actually nice and comfortable to have well-groomed skin that's neither dry nor oily.
For men, good skin care before and after shaving the beard is especially important. Before shaving, it's a good idea to wash your skin and use shaving foam. After shaving, it's important to use a good after-shave cream that soothes and cares for the skin. Our cream is designed specifically for use after shaving and contains Tea Tree Oil, which fights bacteria and prevents irritation and redness.
For women who shave their legs, underarms or bikini line, the same skincare and shaving tips apply. For leg hair removal, we recommend our Body Balm, which contains antibacterial Tea Tree Oil and is great for nourishing the skin after hair removal.
