If you read our interview with Zac Efron in AUGUSTMAN’s May 2018 issue, you would know his one skincare tip to all men is to use SPF protection.

UVA and UVB rays are known to have tremendous damage to our skin and speed up the aging process. So what do you do to stop this? If you have not started using daily protection right now, especially on your face. it is, after all, the first part of your body that shows signs of aging, so you best take care of it before it’s too late.

On top of protecting yourself from dangerous sun rays, moisturizing is essential in any man’s grooming regimen. But why not cut to the chase and do both at the same time? After releasing its In Two Minds skincare line earlier this year, cult Australian skincare and grooming brand Aesop  recently released the  new Aesop Protective Facial Lotion, fit for the busy and urban man.

The pump-type dispenser (hooray to reduced bacterial contamination) releases a lightweight lotion packed with the goodness of green tea extracts and tocopherol (vitamin E) that provides antioxidant properties to fend off daily skin aggressors like pollution and free radicals. While panthenol in the ingredient list works to calm sensitivity, coco-caprylate and squalane provide a protective barrier to lock in moisture and prevent further aggravation to the skin from the harsh environment. The skin can count on the lotion’s powerful SPF 30 to protect it from sun damage.

The lotion’s herbaceous scent also makes it a dream to apply. Simply massage the lotion into the skin after cleansing and toning, and you’re ready to face the day.
