It’s no secret that I have a face for radio, which is why we pretty much stick me on the Geek Speak podcast. Unfortunately, 50+ years in the Texas sun, not to mention just being over 50, means that my skin has seen better days. Especially considering the fact that I’ve never done any sort of cleaning/moisturizing/maintenance routine other than scrubbing my face in the shower.
Well, after grooming with my Meridian waterproof shaver and trimming up my beard, my 14 year old granddaughter pointed out the dark circles under my eyes, blackheads around my nose and cheekbones, and extra dry skin. Somewhat slightly embarrassed, I figured it might be time to start treating my face a little better.
With that in mind, I ordered some premium skin management products for men from Lumin and I have to say, I was rather impressed. With summer on the near-horizon and more and more folks venturing back out for dating and nights on the town, there are 5 products that you may want to get for yourself.
Lumin’s Anti-Wrinkle Defense
That summer sun can be brutal no matter where you live and that can lead to plenty of unwanted wrinkles. Lumin’s supplemental Anti-Wrinkle Serum is packed with vitamins and helps counteract fine lines and damage caused by the sun damage.
Resist the Dark Side
As I have trouble sleeping due to a brain that won’t shut down and severe back pain, I almost always have dark circles under my eyes. While I usually ignore them and my wife rarely says anything, my granddaughter pointing them out made me unable to not see them anymore.
Lumin’s Dark Circle Defense not only significantly brightened them, it reduced wrinkles, and puffiness as well.
It’s Still Part of Your Face
A beard may not be skin, but it is still a part of your “look” and needs attention. I’ve been using beard butter for quite sometime but I noticed lately that it seemed to be drier than it had been, breaking quite often, and had a lot of split-ends.
That’s when I decided that I needed a better conditioning regimen.
Made with a wide blend of nourishing and natural oils, Lumin’s Soothing Beard Oil strengthens, protects, and soothes, and promotes less breakage and healthier growth.
It’s Kind of Gross, But Worth It
I’ve seen women use charcoal pore cleaners in the past but I never thought about using it myself. That was, until the aforementioned granddaughter pointed out what seemed like a couple hundred blackheads.
Anyway, the Charcoal Cleansing Pore Strips from Lumin work like a champ and the multitude of tiny bits they pulled out of my face made me realize that I should probably do this more often.
Something to Make You Go “Ahhhhh”
I’ve also never used any sort of real cleaners on my face aside from bath soap and since I was trying new things, I decided to try their Exfoliating Rub. Guys, the closest description I can come to for this is how it feels after a shave and hot towel treatment at the Barber Shop.
It felt fantastic and while my eyes ain’t what they once were, I swear it lightened an old scar above my eyebrow and decreased my pallor.
Other products I received and enjoyed were the Ultra-Hydrating Moisturizing Balm, the Cooling Aftershave, and the Body Scrubber, but the above were my top 5 favorites.
