Scalp Care for Men

Dandruff and flaky scalp, not only incredibly unsightly, it can be itchy and a real challenge to deal with. During the winter months, dandruff suffers tend to experience an increase in scalp problems and an up-turn in the amount of skin being shed.

What are the causes of Dandruff?

There are many causes of flaky scalp, the main two being dry, dehydrated scalp and a build-up of malasseizia fungus. This type of fungus is found naturally on the skin of both humans and animals and if an excess builds up, it may cause the scalp to become flaky and the skin will start to shed.

Sachajuan Scalp Care Products - Conditioner, Shampoo, Scalp Treatment

How to prevent dandruff

Using a shampoo and conditioner formulated especially for dandruff suffers will help enormously. Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo and Scalp Conditioner are a great tag-team and both work in unison to target flaky scalp from every angle.

Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo is formulated with Piroctone Olamine and Climbazole, both help to remove dandruff and soothe the scalp. Menthol, Rosemary Oil and Ginger Extract support the scalp to maintain moisture and prevent dehydration, thus reducing flaking.

Scalp Conditioner works using similar principles and Salicylic Acid to gentle exfoliate dead skin from the surface, with Oat Oil to soothe and nourish the scalp.

Need to turn it up a notch? Sachajuan Scalp Treatment is where you need to be. This is an enhanced leave-in scalp treatment which use similar actives to the Scalp Shampoo and Conditioner but as it’s left on the hair, it works harder and for longer, meaning faster more noticeable results.

Dr Dennis Gross Daily Face Peels

The Daily Peel, courtesy of Dr Dennis Gross

Facial peels are usually associated with a visit to the dermatologist, but award-winning New York based clinical practitioner, Dr Dennis Gross, has developed a patented 2-step daily face peel which you can carry out in the comfort of your own home. Alpha Beta Daily Face Peels puts the skin into a heightened state of repair which improves the complexion due to increased cell turnover and more intensive daily exfoliation. Dead skin cells are gently dissolved each day by a unique blend of clinical acids to reveal newer, brighter, more youthful looking skin.

How do Alpha Beta Face Peels work?

This product comes in 3 different strengths; Gentle, Universal (original) and Extra Strength. It’s a 2-step process, both of which involve simply sweeping a saturated face pad across the skin.

Step 1 is where the magic happens. The pad is pre-soaked in a powerful exfoliating acid solution which gently ‘nibbles’ away at the dead skin cells on the surface of the face and targets blockages within the pores.

Step 2 neutralises the acids to stop the ‘peel’, sweeps away the dead skin and coats the face in a protective, nourishing layer of anti-ageing actives.

How to use Dr Dennis Gross’ Daily Face Peel

Use morning and night. The benefits are compound so the results improve with regular use,

  1. Clean the face with your daily facial cleanser. For best results, use Dr Dennis Gross’ Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel, this lifts excess oil and grime for the face while cleverly leaving the acid mantle intact.
  2. Take step 1 and gently wipes it across the face using gentle strokes, continue until the pad is almost dry.
  3. Allow 2 minutes for the peel to work its magic.
  4. Wipe the face thoroughly with step 2 to stop the peel and nourish the skin.
  5. Do not rinse. Follow with your facial serums, eye cream and daily moisturiser.

5 pre party skincare tips for men

Shinndig Success: 5 Pre Party Preps

The party season is well underway. Whether it’s work’s Christmas soiree or a the annual outing of you yours, it’s best practice to get your mush looking worth of a kiss under the mistletoe.

Our 5 step to party ready skin will get you looking handsome and ready to turns heads in a jiffy.

Step 1:

The night before, use a clay-based Face Mask. These little treasures dig dirt from within the pores sweep-up excess oil all while refining your skin tone. Try Deep Pore Cleansing Clay by Anthony. Clean your face, keep the skin slightly damp then apply a thin layer on the face and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse well and follow with…

Step 2:

...Vitamin C Serum. Our favourite? Dr Dennis Gross C+ Brighten & Firm Vitamin C Serum. After ‘masking’, clean and dry your face then apply a thin layer of a vitamin-c-rich serum to brighten dull skin. Winter skin can dull quite quickly, this essential step will keep you looking like you’ve just had a rigorous workout.

Step 3:

On the day, exfoliate the skin using a non-drying face scrub. Try Jack Black Face Buff, it will slough-away dead skin cells and clear any final residue from within the pores.

Step 4:

Slap on a serum. It's like a multi vitamin for the skin. Try Germaine de Capuccini Timepxert Lift (IN) Vector Lift Serum. It packs a punch in the anti-ageing department and also encourages the production of Hyaluronic Acid which plumps the skin and boosts hydration.

Step 5:

Treat your skin to a rich, matte moisturiser. This will keep your skin soft, supple, looking healthy and free from shine. After all, who wants their forehead being mistaken for the bathroom mirror? Try Germaine de Capuccini No Stress Hydrating Cream, it strikes the perfect matte/moisture balance.

Now don your dancing gear and hold your head high, you're lookin' pukka!

Dr Dennis Gross Spotlite

Christmas is on the horizon so the usual seasonal suspects (aka. gift sets) are loading themselves onto our cyber shelves in the hundreds, but placing those aside for now (in fear on mentioning the ‘C’ word to early) we’ve cherry picked this week’s top new arrivals.

#1 - Spotlite by Dr Dennis Gross

Who doesn’t get the occasional breakout? And usually on a day when you can really do with it. Spotlite uses 2 different types of light, one to reduce inflammation and the other to neutralise spot-causing bacteria. Used for 3 minutes on each spot, Spotlite will reduce their prominence and, in a day or two, completely remove them. We’re re-naming Spotlite, we’ve decided to brand it ‘The Spot Eraser-Laser’.

#2 - Chia Seed Oil by The Ordinary

Our number 1 best-selling, most popular skincare brand strikes again. The Ordinary have added this organic versatile oil to their line-up to target de-hydration and improve suppleness. Apply a drop or two of Chia Seed Oil to the skin after moisturising to turbo-charge your skincare regime.

#3 - Ouai Leave-In Conditioner

Gaining popularity like no other, the Leave-In Conditioner ‘thing' is real. Ouai, responsible to tending to the tresses of the rich and famous, have created this smoothing leave-in treatment to soften and condition the hair while also offer a light flexible hold. Kiss good-bye to frizzy, static, post-shower hair and hi to easier to style, softer, shinier strands.

#4 - Baxter Travel Size Deodorant

The best-selling, and best smelling, roll-on Deo from Baxter of California is now available in a mini, travel size 35g version. Carrying a charming scent of citrus and herbal musk (which we wish was available in a cologne) and some anti-bacterial, odour-fighting goodness, this clear gel keeps your pits in perfect form, all day long.

#5 - Hanz de Fuko Anti Fade Shampoo

Hanz de Fuko are officially the hair care heroes, they've created some of the best men’s hair care products to date, and Anti-Fade Shampoo continues with that legacy. Formulated as a sulphate-free shampoo for men with coloured hair, this awesome-ly scented daily cleanser seals the hair cuticles to lock-in pigment and leave the hair perfectly nourished and easier to to style.

Hanz de Fuko Anti-Fade Shampoo & Conditioner


Hanz de Fuko, best know for breaking the internet when they launched Claymation, have just dropped their two latest releases onto our cyber shelves. Anti-Fade Shampoo and Anti-Fade Conditioner have been added to the Hanz de Fuko hair care line-up to save coloured hair from ‘fading’ by the wayside.

Both products are unique formulas which have been created to nourish the hair while sealing the hair cuticles to prevent colour loss. Sulphate-free shampoo is essential for coloured so needless to say, Hanz de Fuko skipped the sulphates when formulating these two new (about to become) hair care heroes.
