How Men Can Benefit from Janssen Cosmetics

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Many people seem to believe that men are not prone to the same skincare issues women face every day. In reality, it is actually the opposite but not spoken about as much. Men do suffer from the same skin problems, and many are just beginning to realize the importance of skincare to their overall health. It is now becoming the norm for men to pay attention to their skin, and everyone in the industry has embraced it. Janssen Cosmetics has developed a wide range of products called MEN, which addresses the skincare needs of the modern man. See how this exclusive line can benefit you or a man in your life.

Get rid of blemishes

We’ve all been there. One day you wake up to find some pimples and zits that seem to just come out of nowhere. Everyone has experienced blemishes at some time or another. Although it is a normal part of our skin, it can still be super embarrassing. Many men start skincare routines solely because of this, which is not a bad thing! Skincare can help you remove blemishes so that you can be more confident in yourself.

The Purifying Wash + Shave is the first step you should take in your skincare routine. This practical wash thoroughly cleans the face and provides a smooth shave. It is especially formulated to help with skin irritation. What is unique about it is that it contains D-Panthenol, a chemical that improves elasticity, promotes the generation of new skin cells, and smooths out skin.  

Keep skin healthy

One of the first and foremost aspects of skincare, in general, is to keep the skin healthy. Your skin is an organ that takes a beating on the daily from your busy lifestyle and other environmental factors. For it to endure throughout time, we need to make sure we take care of it just as well as we take care of other parts of our body. We now know the importance of this because of our growing awareness surrounding skin cancer, which affects about 3.3 million Americans every year.

Part of keeping skin healthy is to keep it moisturized. The Calming Hydro Gel doubles as a moisturizer and aftershave gel. It contains Men’s SuperMoist, a powerful hydrating ingredient that helps skin to retain moisture and calm down any irritation from razor burn.

Reduce signs of aging

While aging is a natural part of life, most of us want to reduce its signs as much as possible. It shows up most prominently on our face in the form of wrinkles and fine lines due to the loss of collagen. Taking care of the skin with the appropriate products can help men reduce any current wrinkles or fine lines and prevent new ones from appearing in the future.

The 24/7 Skin Energizer brings back youth to your skin. It is an anti-aging cream that provides excellent moisturizing capabilities and helps prevent signs of aging. Like the Calming Hydro Gel, it also contains Men’s SuperMoist to pack in as much hydration into the skin as possible. With the 24/7 Skin Energizer, you will be able to take on the world again from a fresh perspective.

Look refreshed

If you’ve had a particularly sleepless night from work, you might be looking at some raccoon eyes in the mirror the next morning. As you grow older, it seems like eye bags become more noticeable no matter how much sleep you get. It can be difficult to control this even with the best skincare routine.

However, the Energizing Eye Roll-On will instantly bring back life into your tired eyes. The unique rolling ball applicator delivers SPECIMEN and Men’s Eye Perfecting Complex, two anti-aging ingredients that target the culprit of dark circles and wrinkles.

How Janssen Can Protect Your Skin and Keep it Healthy

Posted by Matthew Eng on

Many are looking for the fountain of youth through the latest photo filters or even plastic surgery. But what many don’t know is that the secret to beautiful, long-lasting skin is a consistent regimen designed to protect your skin and keep it healthy. Janssen Cosmetics provides top of the line skincare products that leave your skin beautiful from the inside out. Here’s how you can incorporate our products into your daily routine:  

Cleansing

Cleansing is the first and most important step in your skincare regimen. Without it, you are just asking for a breakout to happen. This is especially important if you wear makeup on a daily basis. You need a clean slate free of oil and dirt to be able to absorb subsequent products properly. Opt for a gentle cleanser that won’t strip away the natural oils from your face. Make sure to wash your face twice daily.

Some products to consider:

  • Mild Creamy Cleanser. Excellent cleanser for dry skin. It is thorough, helps retain moisture, and leaves your skin feeling clean.
  • Clarifying Cleansing Gel. Mild cleansing gel for oily skin. It is specially formulated to tackle excess oil, inflammation, spots, and blackheads.

Toning

Toners are the next products you might want to reach for after you cleanse your face. Contrary to popular belief, toners are actually very gentle on the skin, and they don’t shrink pores. They provide you with a bit of initial hydration and further prime your skin to absorb other products later on. Unlike the other steps in the process, toners are optional. They used to be needed back when facial cleansers were too basic or harsh on the skin. Toners helped bring the skin’s pH back to normal. Nowadays, cleansers are well-formulated enough that toners aren’t as necessary anymore.

Some products to consider:

  • Radiant Firming Tonic. Helps to smooth out the appearance of your skin and refine your pores. You can use this toner and be confident that your skin is ready to face whatever comes next.
  • Purifying Tonic Lotion. Optimized for oily skin. It helps to prevent inflammation, blackheads, and excess oil production.

Exfoliating

At night, you also want to add in exfoliation as an extra step into your skincare process. While you might not realize it, your skin also has its own battles throughout the day. At the end of the day, it is filled with dead skin and clogged with impurities. The cleansing and exfoliating steps help to take this load off.

Some products to consider:

Moisturizing

The next absolutely essential step next is moisturizing. Like cleansing, you want to apply moisturizer twice daily, even if you have oily or acne-prone skin. It keeps your skin barrier healthy and lets the products you’ve applied before work their magic! If possible, apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp. This helps lock in extra hydration in addition to the hydration provided by the moisturizer itself.

Some products to consider:

  • Day Vitalizer. Daily moisturizing cream that hydrates, smoothes, and protects dry skin.
  • Clarifying Cream Gel. With this gel, those with oily skin can worry less about inflammation, oil, and blemishes.

Protecting

Last but not least, you want to seal the deal with sunscreen when finishing off your morning skincare routine. Sunscreen acts like a shield for your face, preventing UV rays from penetrating through. This is also a non-negotiable step. Sunscreen is vital to the longevity and health of your skin. It helps prevent skin cancer and premature aging down the line.

Some products to consider:

  • Face Guard Advanced. Although this is an emulsion and not technically a sunscreen, it protects all skin types from UVA, UVB, IR, oxidative stress, photoaging, and many more.
  • Sun Shield SPF 30. Sunscreen with SPF 30 that protects skin from UVA and UVB rays.

Men’s Skincare Routine

Posted by Matthew Eng on

With the popularization of skincare on social media, it is becoming normal for both men and women to take part in this self-care routine. It is just as important for men to keep up with a skincare routine as it is for them to groom. However, most men aren’t aware of the potential benefits of skincare. For starters, it can help you prevent breakouts and aging. But you might be wondering where to start. For those who just started on this new journey, it can be quite a daunting task to find a routine and products that work for them. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back! Here, we’ve outlined all of the important steps to a skincare routine that you can start today.

Step 1: Cleanse

Cleansing is the foundation of your skincare routine. Just like your hands, your face can also come into contact with a lot of dirt, oil, and debris you encounter every day. These impurities can trigger breakouts and inflammation and further irritate your face. Cleansing also preps the skin on your face for the next steps in your routine. Make sure to choose a face wash suited for your skin type. Those with dry skin might want to opt for mild ones, while those with oilier skin should look out for gel cleansers.

Most likely, you might already wash your face at the sink or in the shower. Washing it with a cleanser is not much different. Just put a dollop of the product into your hands and massage it into your face. If you have facial hair, take some extra time to work it into the skin. Then, you just wash it all off. That’s it!

Step 2: Toner

Toners prime your face for moisturizers and other products you might want to use after this step. To apply toner, all you have to do is put some product into your hand and press it into your cheeks, forehead, and neck. This technique helps the skin to absorb the toner better than rubbing it in would. There are various types of toners depending on what your needs are. If you want to target acne or ingrown hairs, find a toner with lactic or salicylic acid. Aging and dark spots are best addressed with toners that contain AHA, BHA, or glycolic acid.  

Step 3: Moisturize

Moisturizer is extremely important to the health of your skin. It helps give your skin that extra boost if your water intake isn’t cutting it. Many guys who are new to skincare routines find it weird how moisturizer feels on their face for the first time. Depending on the product, it can sometimes feel like it is dragging down your face. However, it is important to apply moisturizer twice daily. Although dry skin feels lighter, you would much rather have a hydrated and plump face in the future.

Step 4: Sunscreen

Next up is sunscreen, which is undoubtedly essential to your skincare routine. Although it is not obvious to you now, the sun is actively damaging your skin when you are outside unprotected. UV rays from the sun have the potential to cause skin cancer and speed up the aging process. And again, it might feel weird for you to be piling on sunscreen after moisturizer. If you want to combine these two steps, try finding a sunscreen with hydrating components. If you want to look young for longer, sunscreen is your best bet.

The Benefits of Collagen and What it Can Do For Your Skin

Posted by on

Collagen is a naturally-occurring protein that is found in the skin, connective tissues and other parts of the body to help keep skin elastic and strong. However, as we age our bodies produce less collagen, which leads to wrinkles and less suppleness within the skin. While collagen is the most abundant protein in the human [...]
