Today's modern man faces many perils. Beyond the obvious dangers of stress, aging, and scorned partners, your face is a prime target for dirt, grit, and relentless sunlight.
While Old Father Time will always have his way, we can fight back and support our skin-cell troops in waging an endless war against our merciless environment. It's no big secret. Take care of your face, and your invigorated complexion will inform the world of your dashing, confident disposition. It's a pretty straightforward process: Keep it clean, get rid of old cells, moisturize, and protect. It really isn't that hard to stick to the program. Take just a little extra time every day, commit to looking good, and enjoy a lifetime of suggestive glances and supreme confidence. Think of your basic skincare regiment as a well-trained army unit. Keep the barracks clean, remove fallen comrades from the battlefield, keep the troops hydrated and strap on the body armor.
With this in mind, lock 'n load as we give you our mission brief on keeping that gorgeous mug of yours clean, fresh, and ready to wage war!
Keeping Things Clean - Sang d'encre - Facial Cleanser
Like following orders, keeping your face clean is the most important step in maintaining a healthy skincare regiment. Nobody wants to see greasy, shiny skin that screams 'dirty.' Besides your hands (which, in the world of today, should be washed regularly), your face is the only other part of your body perpetually exposed to the world outside.
As we go about our daily grind, the face takes on a full dose of what life has to throw at it, yet we only have the chance to wash up at home. From dust to grit, dirt to grime, there is no escaping the endless stream of pollutants that stick to your skin. Once there, they settle down, invading pores and digging in for the long haul.
Enter the ultimate weapon in cleaning out the rabble: The Sang d'encre - Facial Cleanser. With this effective face cleaner, you'll soon be marching to clean, healthy skin. Boasting a potent combination of activated charcoal and Opuntia cactus oil, the activated carbon strips away any and all impurities as it soaks up the dirt, while the oil locks in the moisture in a gentle finishing maneuver.
Getting Rid of the Dead - Rebels Refinery - Activated Charcoal Face Scrub
The only thing that clogs up pores more than dirt is dead skin cells. Getting rid of your dearly departed fighters can be a tough ask, but it is a vital cog in the process. With a steady stream of new cells, itching to get to the front and into the fight, you first need to make way for them. Exfoliating your face not only removes this old skin, but it also takes care of blackheads and pesky ingrown hairs in one spectacular swoop. When it comes to unclogging your pores, getting rid of blackheads, and freeing up those hairs, you’ll need to bring in the heavy artillery. For this, we turn to the Rebels Refinery - Activated Charcoal Face Scrub. This baby cuts through grease, getting into those pores and blasting away yesterday's warriors – old skin. By scrubbing into the skin, the charcoal grains penetrate deep, flushing out the last remnants of impurities and leaving you with a fresh, brand new face. Phase two, complete.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! - Refinery - Under Eye Moisturizer
Water is life. Without it, things will go south very quickly. It's taken us a while, but we've finally realized that moisturizing the skin is as important as keeping it clean. Once we've diligently washed and scrubbed off all the dirt and grease, we're left with an exposed, fresh face, untested on the frontlines.
Prepare the skin by locking in moisture, equipping our cells with a supply of H2O, and getting them through the day. Some parts of our face are much more sensitive than others, none more so than the skin just below the eyes. Think about it – what tells you that you're tired and burned out? Bags under the eyes! To combat this, we turn to science in fighting off puffiness, dark circles, and sagging skin. The Rebels Refinery - Under Eye Moisturizer is loaded with a cocktail of natural ingredients, blended into a potion that keeps you looking fresh and young all day long.
You'll feel the difference immediately, and your face will thank you, as the combination of oils, caffeine, sugars, and vitamins go to work and equip the troops for action.
Protection is Key - American Crew All-in-one Face Balm SPF15 & Rebels Refinery Skull Lip Balm
Once the war is almost over, it's time to take on the insurgency. Just because you look fantastic after washing, scrubbing, and moisturizing, it doesn't mean that you can drop your guard.
Sunlight, the invisible enemy, attacks from dawn to dusk. While dirt and impurities are your short-term threats, sneaky UV radiation does the most damage. From your hairline to your chin, the sun's harmful rays can take a heavy toll on even a well-kept face. Let's not forget the constant assault that dry air makes on those lips, either. So, we need to add an all-important layer of protection in completing the all-round skincare regiment. Like adding a layer of armor to your skin, shield that sunlight away from your delicate flesh and keep those lips soft and revitalized. Defend against the sun with the American Crew - All-in-one Face Balm SPF15, a veritable double-agent sporting ray-resistant SPF15 while soothing the skin post-shave.
Finally, let the Rebels Refinery Skull Lip Balm keep your kissers in perfect condition, nourishing them with Vitamin E while calling on natural protection with a healthy combination of coconut and sweet almond oils.
So, there you have it – step to and charge into the fray with a face armed to take on the ravages of the world. Clean, scrub, moisturize, and protect with a skincare regime backed up by Dillinger's' selection of choice weaponry.
Win the day, looking good, refreshed, and revitalized!
