[dropcap]S[/dropcap]kin care management is often seen as a feminine routine but the truth of the matter is, men are just as concerned about skin problems as women are. They are becoming increasingly aware of the implications of not sticking to a skin care regimen. Dry and flakey skin, premature aging, dullness, clogged pores leading to black heads and break outs are all common amongst men.

Schaf Skin Care for Men is a high performance skin care line that has been carefully crafted and designed for men. You won’t find any chemicals, synthetic substances or artificial fragrances in any of their products. Schaf uses only organic and all-natural ingredients to produce the best results for healthier skin and body. This skin care line not only puts the “un” back in uncomplicated, it restores the smoothness to your skin, and reverses years of damage caused by shaving, harsh weather and neglect. Currently, there are four products in this innovative line, all simple and straightforward to use.

  1. SHAVE

This amazing shaving product contains all natural vegetable and coconut lubricants, giving you the perfect amount of foam and slickness for a clean and comfortable shave. With the absence of chemically engineered foaming agents, those with sensitive skin will particularly benefit from this non-irritating cream. And unlike most shaving products, Shave does not strip away your skin’s natural moisture. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and new after each use.
To Use: Massage 1-2 pumps of Shave onto wet face immediate after shower. After you shave, rinse with lukewarm water.

  1. THE HYDRATE

This almost odourless face moisturizer is packed with all-natural goodness, especially created to help restore, rejuvenate and fight the early signs of aging. This product consists of essential and botanical oils such as organic shea, avocado, pumpkin and sunflower seed. Cucumber and aloe extracts were added to reduce skin irritation and are an excellent source of re-hydration for your skin. I’m also very pleased to see that they’ve also added a very important component to grooming care and that is Vitamin E and comfrey, which have remarkable healing properties. As if this wasn’t enough, Schaf added a final touch to their moisturizing cream and that is Matrixyl 3000, a peptide that helps promote collagen production.
To Use: Apply 1 to ½ pumps to face and neck, morning and/or night.

  1. CLEANSE

This product contains extracts of corn, coconut and sugar beets that give way to the foaming richness of this mild cleanser-and chamomile. Aloe and cucumber add additional soothing and calming properties. Acting as a dual purpose cleanser, it also contains green tea extracts which acts as an antioxidant for the skin, helping to maintain your skin’s natural pH balance. The cleanser is great to use after a work-out because it removes all the bacteria and dirt build up released during perspiration.
To Use: Wet face. Apply a quarter size amount of the product to your face and neck and massage it onto your skin. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat face dry with a towel.

  1. SCRUB

Exfoliating your skin is a very important part of skin care management but it is often neglected. Every day, dirt, oil and dead skin cells build up on your skin’s surface causing your skin to appear old, dry and worn down. When you remove those dead skin cells, you reveal newer, more soft and subtle skin. This scrub has organic apricot seeds that have been ground to yield the most comfortable and mild scrub. It also contains white lava particles, taken from the volcanos in the Auvergne region of France to rejuvenate your skin with natural minerals.
For Use: Massage gently in circular motion onto wet face and neck, targeting the area around the nose, forehead and chin. Avoid the sensitive area around your eyes. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat face dry with a towel.

It is not recommended to exfoliate every day, 1-3 times per week will suffice.
