22 Nov SKINCARE for man kind….
It’s about time! A gorgeous skin care range for men. Paul Anderson is the owner of MANKiND, a salon exclusively for men in Surry Hills. Paul has now created KiND a sensational skin care range also specifically for men. KiND is perfect for all KiND’s of men especially the KiND that steal their girlfriends moisturiser! If your boy steals your moisturiser this could be the perfect gift idea!
They may be tough but their skin has needs. Men’s skin is thicker, it produces more oil and their facial hair is thick. These factors make a combination which can cause some annoying skin concerns. A simple skin care routine can solve these problems and achieve a healthier, clearer and more radiant complexion for guys.
I spoke to Paul about the creation of his fab range-
What was the inspiration for creating the range?
The main inspiration was to fill a gap on the shelf at MANKiND. We needed a natural, high quality product that was affordable for all guys. The shave cream was the initial product we wanted to create because we needed a shave cream that didn’t have any artificial fragrance and the rest of the KiND product line followed.
What are the most common mistakes men make when it comes to skincare?
A common mistake is for guys to think that a scrub is a wash for their face and to use it every day because it will lift the beard for shaving as well, when all it really does is sensitise the skin and create worse irritation.
What are the most common skin concerns for men?
The most common concerns are congestion around the nose and chin and irritation caused by shaving.
Are there any key ingredients that are unique to the range?
All KiND products are free from artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, sodium lauryl sulphate, soap, mineral oil, drying alcohols, petrolatum, formaldehyde, and parabens.
Oils in place of artificial fragrance. These are specifically chosen for their calming, aromatic features and their antibacterial properties.
Inspired by our rich flora, highly active Australian bush extracts are chosen for their purity & dynamic healing characteristics. We use the unique Native Kakadu Plum, Australian grown Sandalwood, Fragonia, Lemon Myrtle, Tea Tree and Macadamia nut oil.
tell us about the Skin Brew Tea?
Our Skin Brew tea was created because we wanted a detox tea without the detox taste, that’s why we have lemongrass and peppermint in there as well as for its benefits.
It is blended exclusively by a leading Australian Naturopath and this herbal tea works to cleanse, clear and brighten the complexion from the inside by considering the skin’s health and its relationship with internal body systems – such as the circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems. It utilises calendula Leaf, Ginger Root and Echinacea Leaf to aid these systems and create a healthier skin texture and tone.
If you could give one piece of advice to all men regarding their skincare what would it be?
My advice would be for the young- Take care of your skin from an early age because all men by the age of 35 wish they had.
Use good quality products because some of the cheaper brands will actually cause skin sensitivity and redness as you get older
and have regular face treatments: they make the biggest difference
