Bulldog Skincare Launches in South Africa 

UK skincare brand makes its leap to South Africa.

Published

on

British male grooming brand, Bulldog Skincare has officially launched in South Africa. The beloved brand has hit the local market by introducing its range of products specifically formulated for male skin that use quality natural ingredients, all at an affordable price.

Bulldog started life in a spare room in West London when founder, Simon Duffy, noticed that there were no straightforward skincare options that were made for him and men like him.

With a mission to deliver straightforward skincare options with an ethical conscience, each and every product in the range is formulated by experts who unlock the power of natural ingredients – like aloe vera, camelina and green tea – with a little help from science.

From the brand’s very first day, it has completely boycotted the use of ingredients from animal sources with every product certified vegan and cruelty-free. Better yet, Bulldog rejects the use of synthetic fragrances and artificial colours when making its highly effective products. So, whether a man has regular, sensitive, or mature skin or has a beard, Bulldog has the answer.

Furthermore, Bulldog wanted to find a better way to package its products. That’s why it became the first male skincare brand in the world to use sugarcane as a raw material in its packaging. Sugarcane is a renewable plant-based source that needs little more than natural rainfall to grow.

Bulldog has exclusively partnered with Clicks, and has nine products available for purchase across 541 stores nationwide. They include:

  • Original Face Wash – R130
  • Original Moisturiser – R170
  • Age Defence Moisturiser – R220
  • Original Face Scrub – R150
  • Sensitive Moisturiser – R170
  • Sensitive Face Wash – R130
  • Age Defence Moisturiser
  • Original Beard Shampoo – R200
  • Original Beard Oil – R210
  • Original Beard Balm – R220

5 Reasons Why Men Should be Getting Regular Facials

Don’t skip the skincare, fellas!

Published

on

facial

Let’s be honest, your skin is the first thing people see when they look at you. Plus, your skin is considered the largest organ in the human body, right up there with the intestines, lungs, and liver. It serves many purposes, including acting as our first defence against germs and the environment, and converting sunlight to vitamin D. So why aren’t we as men taking more care of our skin?

As men, we need to ask ourselves… Does our current skincare regime include a monthly facial treatment?

Do we need to invest more time and effort into maintaining regular skincare routines? As it turns out, facials are becoming a common monthly treatment for many men. Because, it’s never too late to start taking good and proper care of your skin.

Unfortunately, facing our current economic state, getting a facial is commonly seen as something you do only when you want to treat yourself, or as a luxury service with benefits are reserved for only the “rich and famous” who can afford it (let’s be honest, it can be a little pricey at times) but treating yourself to a facial every month boasts a number of benefits and also decreases your chances of having to dish out money for expensive procedures or products. Whilst we may not always admit it, men are seemingly just as conscious about their skin and ageing as woman, but don’t act on it as often.

skincare

A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. Skin damage from your shaving routine can’t be fixed with the soap and water you use every day. Probably more than the ladies, guys need facials, thanks to their coarser skin and larger pores. Still not convinced?

Here are 5 reasons why men should be getting regular facials:

Male Skin Produces More Oil

Men have higher testosterone levels than women, which helps explain why men produce more oil. When not cleaned properly, oil will clog your pores, which can lead to blackheads. Just because men produce more oil doesn’t mean all men have oily skin, though. Pores need to be unclogged to prevent acne and scarring to the skin. Regular deep cleansing treatments and exfoliation play a very vital role in unclogging pores. Your pores can become clogged for a number of reasons – excess oil resulting from hormonal changes, dry skin, a build-up of dead skin cells, or dirt and oil becoming stuck beneath the surface.

You’ll Get a Smoother Shave

Whether it’s every day or every two weeks, the continuous dragging of a razor across facial skin can cause irritation. Razor burn and inflammation are common consequences of shaving. A facial will deep clean bumps and soothe irritated skin. The smoother your skin, the better and less painful your shave. Facials will also rehydrate the skin, which will help to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Maintains healthy skin

New skin cells are produced every 28 days. In order to maintain healthy skin, the correct products and treatments should be done every 28 days in order to maintain healthy and vibrant skin. Facials are hugely beneficial for this.

Helps slow down premature ageing

Collagen stimulation is the best way to slow down premature ageing, and yes men are conscious about ageing too, therefore collagen induction therapy is an extremely good facial procedure to do. This incorporates micro-needling technology in order to remodel your skin. A vitamin-rich Pomegranate mask is applied to help soothe the skin.

Improve imperfections

Skin imperfections can be improved with our range of advanced skin facials and peels. We all have those little imperfections that we don’t want, such as acne scars, blemishes, beauty spots and pigmentation – something that men suffer from too, not just woman.

Carla and Mariette of SkinPhD Queenswood Quarter, in Pretoria, encourage all men to take their skincare more seriously, and that men should not be shy to go for monthly facials and should also really enjoy them! It is recommended that one should have a professional facial every three to four weeks. That’s how long it takes your skin to move through the full life cycle of skin cell growth and exfoliation.

They highly suggest the “Insta Hydra” treatment, a 45-minute treatment designed to instantly increase the skin hydration level and skin protective function with a surge of antioxidants, while visibly improving skin plumpness, fine lines and wrinkles. This will only set you back R640 a month, a pretty reasonable price to pay for great-looking skin.

“Products should be used at home in conjunction with our treatments. It is vital to make this part of your daily lifestyle,” they added.

SkinPhd Queenswood offers a wide variety of treatments from massages and waxes, to advanced facials and aesthetic beauty treatments.

To make a booking call SkinPhD Queenswood on 087 898 1078.

Ditch the Old Undies! We’ve Found the Best Boxers to Up Your Style & Comfort

It’s time to evolve your boxer game!

Published

on

We get it — we all have those favourite boxers or briefs that have been with us for way too long, and probably resemble something more like a shot-up balaclava than underwear; but if ever there was a time to switch things up, it’s now. Because not only have the times changed, but MANSCAPED™ has also launched its brand-new boxers, giving you every reason to nab yourself a pair or three.

The Boxers 2.0 are the latest addition to the grooming giant’s lifestyle range, but while you may be thinking “how much can boxers really change?”, the truth is: a lot.

The goal behind The Boxers 2.0 was to create the most comfortable boxers that a man can buy, and it’s pretty safe to say that MANSCAPED has achieved just that.

The boxers themselves are light, well-constructed, and soft, already getting one-up on many other options out there. Furthermore, they’re made from a cooling, moisture-wicking Micro Modal fabric, which features anti-chafing properties and smooth flatlock seams — so not only do they keep you cool, but there’s also no awkward scratching, no hard points, or uncomfortable niggles with these bad boys.

If that wasn’t enough, The Boxers 2.0 also feature The Jewel Pouch™, which, as the name suggests, is a more protected and breathable space for, well, the jewels, thanks to greater stitching quality and a perforated performance fabric for extra breathability.

The Boxers 2.0 are slickly designed, with a satin jacquard waistband and some pretty cool prints too, including pinstripes, minimalist prints, or something more ‘out there’, like the Gold Nugget design, if that tickles your fancy.

The boxers not only look good, but they also fit well, having a more tighter and skin-like feel, but still having enough ‘space’ to feel comfortable down there. So you can rest assured, there’s no bunching or floppy seams and edges that make pulling on a pair of jeans a challenging endeavor. An additional feature is the front fly opening, making bathroom breaks a whole lot easier.

You can pick up The Boxers 2.0 at R595 for a single; and R1,600 for 3-pack, but they’re currently on special for just over R400 a pair! So, if you’re going to act, do it now!

Does Men’s Skin Age Better than Women’s? A Doctor Addresses the Myths

Some say men age like red wine? A doctor weighs in on the debate.

Published

on

Beauty experts have pointed out that men have an advantage when it comes to ageing because their skin is 20 to 30 percent thicker than women’s, but whether this plays a role in the visibility of early wrinkles or an aged look is always up for debate.

Well, thankfully, Dr Earim Chaudry, medical director at Manual gave some insight into whether or not men’s skin does in fact age ‘better’ than women’s.

“Technically, there is some truth to men’s skin ageing better than women’s,” said Dr. Chaudry. “Producing more collagen certainly helps, as it keeps the complexion firm and plump. Men also produce more sebum which, despite potentially clogging the pores and causing blackheads and whiteheads, makes skin dewier and oilier. “

While Dr. Chaudry did give men the ‘W’ in this instance, he also noted that in a 2019 YouGov study, it was revealed that 31% of men admitted to not wearing sunscreen when they went out, compared to just 15% of women who went without. Excess sun exposure plays a huge role in early again of the skin, so, according to the study, men’s skincare regime isn’t up to scratch, despite their genetic advantage.

“Due to a lot of men in the UK being careless with their SPF use, mortality rates of skin cancer in men have tripled since the 70s, highlighting that despite having a natural advantage, their skin is more at risk without protection.” 

You can read more on Dr. Chaudry’s insight over on Manual.
