Q: What are some common skin problems that men experience? 

Men tend to have higher sebum and lower moisture content in their facial skin compared to women, and their oily skin condition is exacerbated by Singapore’s tropical and humid climate. 

Those who have been shaving their facial hair for years may notice their skin becoming dry, irritated, dull and rough as a result. This is because shaving affects the lipid layer of the epidermis that helps to retain moisture.

Q: What are some good skincare habits for men?

First, cleansing your face in the morning and before bedtime is a must every day. Opt for a mild facial cleanser and wash with lukewarm water.

Next, apply a moisturiser to protect the skin from external air pollutants, control sebum production and offer intense hydration for brighter, smoother and younger-looking skin. 

Don’t forget sunscreen to minimise UV damage that could hasten the development of wrinkles or age spots.

Q: What is available for men who prefer a fuss-free skincare routine?  

For those who are time-strapped and want to address oily, dry and irritated skin quickly, an all-in-one skincare product like Suntory Varon is the perfect solution. It is new in Singapore and imported by Brand’s from Suntory Wellness Japan.

The product features W/O/W (Water in Oil in Water) emulsification technology that enables its lotion, serum, and cream components to penetrate the skin in that order. This is due to its unique molecular structure where water is encased in oil and again encased in water.

The lotion component contains Suntory’s original whisky barrel wood extract and Oolong tea extract, and Acetylhexa Peptide-8, to help to brighten and moisturise skin and delay wrinkle formation.

The product also features inositol in its serum component to help regulate sebum and reduce skin dryness, and plant-derived squalene in its cream component to moisturise and improve skin texture.
Results from our internal survey in December last year of 248 men in their 40s to 70s reflected 91 per cent user satisfaction upon observing the effects of the product on their skin after 10 days of product usage.
