Man Crush Mondays: Ursa Major

We're swooning over all natural men's line Ursa Major and it's range of effective, stylish and thoughtful products. They have given us the low down on men's skincare 101


Men’s skin is different to women’s skin.  It’s thicker, oilier, has more pores and sweats more.  And of course men have much tougher, faster-growing hair follicles or ‘whiskers’. All this creates a unique set of challenges best met by regular use of skin care products designed specifically for men.

At a basic level, regardless of how often you shave, a sound skin care regimen entails cleaning, “exfoliating” (removing dead cells from the skin’s surface) and hydrating/nourishing/protecting your skin 1-3 times a day (literally feeding your skin the key minerals, vitamins, proteins, fatty acids, etc. it needs to function at its best).

The result should be clear, comfortable and healthy skin, free of any blocked pores, irritation or oily shine.  Going a step further  it’s possible to slow down or even reverse some of the visible signs of aging (dark spots, wrinkles, sagging skin, etc) using the right combination of active ingredients.

Of course regular use of premium natural skin care products will only get you so far.  Just as important to maintaining great skin health is eating a balanced and nutritious diet, exercising regularly, staying hydrated, getting enough rest and managing your stress levels.  Easier said than done.

The regimen - 

Cleanse: Throughly cleanse with the Fantastic Face Wash to remove "grime" and enviromental buildup. With a high precenatge of aloe this wash is also very soothing and the farthest thing from drying or iritating.

Shave: The Stellar Shave Cream will soften tough whiskars, and because it is a non foaming cream you can track your shave and avoid going over sensitive areas. 

Tone: Their 4-in-1 Esstential Face Tonc will heal any irritation from shaving, blance pH levels, exfoliate and remove any excess oil buildup. Can also be used on chest and back to minimze breakouts from excess sweating. 

Moisturize: Fortifying Face Balm provides deep hydration, while being lightweight and fast-absorbing with no heavy feeling or shine

On the go: If you're spending a lot of time in the gym, the Essential Face Wipes are great to throw in your bag to ve be used after a work out to quickly cleanse, tone and hydrate.
