Hair is the new Black

The male grooming revolution is set to continue to grow in 2017 but have you moved on with the times.  Can you have your clean shaven face on point without getting an awful rash or keep your hair and beard looking sharp?  Then there are the myriad of super cool men’s hairstyles now and when did a visit to the barber for a shave and groom is the norm.  NU FACE London can ensure that your skin is clear, prepared and ready for any look you choose.

Do you SHAVE

For most people, shaving leaves the face and neck soft, smooth and fresh looking. Others aren’t so lucky: Shaving means days or even weeks with skin that’s sensitive to the touch and has quite visible breakouts. For men, this seems to offer the option of sporting a lifetime beard or presenting to the world a freshly shaved rash where the neck, jaw and cheeks once existed.

Great skin prep with ZO and pHformula skincare to match your skin type and a great razor are what our Nu Face Dr Yiannis recommends.

Razor burn is mild skin irritation following shaving due to a dull razor or insufficient use of moisturizer or a shaving lubricant. Razor burn can also occur when sweat or chemicals (such as lotions with fragrances or deodorant) make contact with the multitude of tiny nicks and cuts shaving creates in the skin, which we normally don’t detect unless we really give ourselves a good slice.


Do you TRIM

Facial hair in some form, especially Beards seem to be bang on trend right now and at least you avoid that razor burn right but we are now expected to keep them looking slick and smart. It is not unheard of for our patients to share that they have been hot towelled and trimmed to within an inch of their bearded life.  Gone are the days when you walked into the barbers and asked for a Grade 1, 2 or 3 with a bit off the top.  Now you need to know your Scissor-cut contour from your Side-parted pompadour or Disconnect slick back with burst fade! You do know that don’t you?

Whether you shave or not a good skincare and grooming regime is essential to stave off lines and wrinkles.  You may have damaged the skin with exposure to the sun in which case we recommend a chemical peel such as the ZO Stimulator peel to take your skin back to a healthy starting point – don’t worry it does not hurt.  The Ossential Stimulator Peel uses a combination of three exfoliating ingredients- salicylic, lactic and citric acid to slough away dead skin cells and any superficial blemishes to reveal fresh, clearer skin underneath. It also stimulates cell turnover for continued improvement to the skin.

If you have acne, breakouts or ageing skin them you can bring out a brighter fresher you with our pHformula range.  In your skin consultation Dr Yiannis will ensure that you have the correct skin care range for you – there is no one size fits all.

Have a great week and stay sharp.
