Winter Skincare | Remington Recharge Brush

12:40:00

If beauty is only skin deep. then what is your excuse in not looking after your skin?


While some may go to the gym & watch what they eat, others might spend hours on their hair and drop a fortune on clothes, what make men so reticent to care for their biggest organ (get your mind out of the gutter); their skin?

Winter plays havoc with our skin. Cold air outside, hot dry air inside combine to cause no end of problems for your skin. Coming into the festive season, our diet can also change for the worse, with alcohol liberally applied throughout the month. Dehydration doesn't just cause your skin to become dry, it can also make it greasy as your body tries to lock in moisture.

Dry, dead skin, built up with layers of grease sounds more like some revolting lasagne than your complexion.

My skin has a constant battle between greasy and dry, and this season, it is only exacerbated. So I have been trying to up my skincare game with more focus on my face and have recently invested and experimented with a few new tools and products.







I've been using the Remington Recharge Facial Cleansing Brush for around a month now. I regularly use scrubs and exfoliators on my face but as good as they are, sometimes you just need a bit more power!
The brush is a motorised exfoliator and comes with 3 separate heads; normal, skin & stubble and pre-shave. (As I still have my beard, I've not had call to use the pre-shave which is a textured rubber head designed to lift dead skin and soften stubble prior to your shave)
As I said, I've been using it for around a month, bringing it into my grooming routine around 3 times a week. The great thing about the brush is that it is showerproof and ours stays in the shower all the time. 

I've been experimenting with different products in conjunction with the brush; all of which have all their own merits I've found are improved with the aid of the vibrating and rotating brush.

Lush Coalface Soap

I've used Coalface previously on its own. It does a really good job of absorbing oil and tightening up skin. Combine it with a good moisturiser afterwards to stop your skin drying out.

Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser & Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
Bought on a whim when they were on a 3 for 2 offer, the baking soda gently exfoliates your skin and the charcoal absorbs grease. 

ClarinsMen Exfoliating Cleanser

Truthfully, I've been using little sample sizes I was kindly given at a Boots event earlier in the year and it has been encouraging me to purchase a real bottle in the future.

If you are going to get serious about your skin (and as none of us are getting any younger, we should take it seriously),you should consider investing in a gadget that makes it easier and quicker to clean your skin. Not only for the ease of use, but also for the more thorough deep clean it can provide.

At £79.99, the Remington Recharge brush is an investment piece but now is the perfect time to drop some subtle hints to a kind-hearted soul and you might just find one of these bad boys in your Christmas stocking!


Are you a grooming gadget kind of guy? Any recommendations on other tools?
