Celebrating Father's Day yesterday without one was a little bittersweet for me, as I got to remember all the good memories my Dad and I made. To look back in those few years I've spent with him and share some of my skin care regimen so he too can take care of his skin. Let's face it, most men in the past only have had soap and water for grooming (also shaving). Other than that, they would experiment with women's products and other stuff that isn't necessarily designed for us. These days, there's tons out there that can address what men need especially if you're investing in yourself, to make sure you look good even as you age; because the last thing you would want to look like is a prune when you're already in your late years.
As you may understand, men's skin just isn't the same as with women. It's thicker, more oily (in some cases) and ages quite differently. Aside from that, not all men appreciate the scents that comes with women's products which are either flowery or fruit scented, not to mention what other harsh ingredients there are in them that don't really fit what we need. This week, I've had the pleasure of testing out the Luminisce Pour Homme Kit. For those who don't know, Luminisce is a skin care institute that also creates premium skin and body wellness solutions owned and operated by renowned clinical dermatologist Dr. Kaycee Reyes. I've had the chance to meet her a few years ago when I went to her clinic in BGC with some friends from the blogging industry. They have taken good care of their skin and I've seen how she personally tends to them whenever they visit her clinic.
They created the Luminisce Pour Homme line so men don't have to do guesswork if they want to take good care of their skin. The Luminisce Sunblock should be put on your face, neck and extremities when you plan to go out. This also would be good for those who have some amount of daylight going into their homes. I used the Luminisce Facial Wash in different times of the day to get dirt and oil off my skin. Before I do work or spend hours monitoring channels for entertainment news, I do this so I feel fresh while lounging around the my house. The Men’s Youth Fairy Cream would be good for those who need a little help in the aging department, it not only moisturizes but hastens your skin to renew a bit (unnoticeable peeling). Those fine lines would lessen, but I think I would need more time to see that happen in my case. They also have in the kit something they call D Cure (Once-a-month Vitamin D) and Glow Fuel C (Vitamin C Serum) which contain a good amount of anti oxidants which you can apply on your skin. My personal favorite is the Hair Rescue (Anti-hair fall spray) which has an active ingredient called Minoxidil to help promote hair growth and treatment in male pattern baldness (especially for thinning hair). I use it right after I come out from the shower and dry off my hair a bit because you need to apply this when its damp. Spray a bit and rub in lightly before you apply other styling products you need to use if you plan to go out. I didn't go out that much these days and just plainly use it after my cold showers because it's so hot where I am.
Now if you're thinking of spoiling your Dad, boyfriend, sibling or friend, I bet this would be a good place to start. It comes in pretty small packaging which you can carry around in small Men's Kikay kit if you have one in your man bags. Originally, this is priced at around Php 3,570 but they've got a promo running so that you can avail this for only Php 2,850 at Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovations branches nationwide. You may also call them via (0977) 804 4601 or get in touch with them through their social channels @luminisce on Facebook or @luminisce_official on IG. They're pretty responsive so ask if you need information about the products too.
Now go ahead and spoil your Dad, it's not too late! :)
