What’s going on – I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying the work week I have a huge work project that’s taking up a lot of my time the new movie Hell Boy which comes out in April which if you are a fan of Hell Boy I would totally go and see it! I was sent some samples from a brand called War Paint which is pretty much makeup for men, it’s all very masculine and very manly containers, for example a woman wouldn’t see this sitting on a mans sink and think oh that’s makeup, the packaging is very discreet! Which is a huge plus for men who are straight and put on a little something to hide a night so well rested weekend or drinking. But there is a lot of claims behinds War Paint and we will get into some of them.
Men’s skin is naturally tougher, the skin on a man’s face is 25% thicker than a woman’s, men’s skin also has bigger pores and a lot more of them which produces more sebum than a woman. The difference in men’s skin to woman’s skin is caused by hormones, specifically testosterone. Androgens such as testosterone affect the thickness of the skin and how much sebum their skin’s sebaceous glands produce. Seeing as men have a whole shedload of testosterone, their skin is both thicker and oilier than women’s. This means that as a man you may be more likely to get spots and blackheads.
Due to this, men need to be more cautious about what they use on their skin, as “regular” skincare and cosmetics could worsen the skin over time.
All of War Paint’s products are individually designed for men’s skin including ingredients such as; Vitamin-E, this is a natural protection from UV rays as men’s skin is naturally more prone to damage from UV rays which increases signs of ageing skin. Tea Tree Leaf Oil, this is excellent for acne prone skin and has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which can help fight acne and improve the condition. Lanolin Alcohol is a fatty alcohol that can greatly benefit dry skin caused by shaving because it helps defend against moisture loss and maintain a supple feel on the skin. BHA which works on the skin’s surface and inside the pores to reduce blackheads and prevent spots. Learn more here.
