Men often express the need for skin care products that are gender specific, however, when looking at the skin there are no structural differences between that of a male skin versus that of a woman. The differences come in on hormonal activity as an increase in both androgen and testosterone hormones will lead to both an oilier skin care concern and a strengthened beard hair growth. The general rule of thumb is that male skin portrays with a thicker epithelial layer due to the oil content inhibiting the natural sloughing of redundant skin cells. The ingrown hair causes acne-like eruptions. DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care do not offer a specific Men only range as DermaFix focuses on skin care concerns regardless of gender.
DermaFix Skin Care products that are best suited to male skin are as follows;
A moisturising foaming cleanser with anti-inflammatory, healing and calming properties. This botanical blend can be used as part of your shaving routine due to its ability to provide the needed glide on the skin reduces friction caused by your razor blade, which often leads to skin irritation.
This enzyme-based gentle exfoliator will help normalise the pH balance of the skin while deep cleansing the pores and increasing cellular renewal. Regular exfoliation helps to remove redundant skin cells which in turn prevents ingrown hairs often associated with a concern known as Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. For a more advanced protocol, DermaFix Conditioning Alkaline Wash may be used for a quick shave to prevent inflammation caused by beard impaction of the hair follicle.
This light-weight moisturising formulation incorporates Vitamin B Complex, working to balance oil production in the skin whilst relieving sensitivity often experienced post shaving.

It furthermore offers an anti-inflammatory action whilst removing redundant skin cells for the prevention of ingrown hairs or breakouts.
DermaFix DermaShield SPF40/50
UVA (long rays) penetrate the skin more deeply than UVB (short rays). Radiation triggers free radical and oxidative stress causing collagen to break down (cross-linking) so that skin wrinkles, weakens elastin so that skin sags, and brings about unsightly hyperpigmentation. Both UVA and UVB rays in excess are detrimental to the skin causing photo-ageing. It is essential to incorporate sun protection into your regime in order to prevent free-radical attacks. DermaFix DermaShield SPF40 offers high protection in a non-greasy, oil-free formulation whilst DermaFix DermaShield SPF50 offers water resistant capabilities and is SANS 1557:2013, ISO 24444, ISO 24443 approved.
