Let’s be honest—when was the last time you lathered up your face with a run-of-the-mill bar soap in the shower? We’ve got news for you—you’re damaging your skin! Yes, even if you’re using that fancy 2-in-1 face and body wash. While it may be your body’s largest organ, the skin on your face is physiologically different. And despite what you’ve heard about men looking better with age, every guy’s skin has needs—and it needs to be treated well. This isn’t just aesthetics. It’s a matter of skin health.
The SCIENCE of skin health
Your skin is much more than simply what you see in the mirror. It serves as a barrier that protects from dirt, bacteria, UV radiation and other elements that don’t belong inside the body. Skin has nerve endings that tell you when it’s hot and cold to protect you from extreme temperatures. Healthy skin is a reflection of a healthy body.
More than just a euphemism, men are known to have thicker, tougher skin than their female counterparts. Still, the skin on your face is thinner than the skin on your arms, hands and elsewhere. Using products with harsh chemicals can strip and disrupt the necessary natural balance that keeps your face clean, clear and healthy. Hair follicles, sweat glands and oil glands function to protect and heal the skin. Disrupt these and you risk disrupting the health of your skin, wreaking havoc with your tone, texture, appearance and comfort:
- Skin Tone - Healthy skin has a consistent skin color. Blotchiness, discolorations and dark circles are all signs of accumulated damage.
- Skin Texture - Skin should have a uniform, even texture. Bumps, acne and clogged pores are all signs that your skin needs some attention.
- Skin Appearance - Your skin is a living organ and is constantly turning over skin cells. Skin that isn’t properly hydrated or exfoliated regularly builds up dead skin cells on the surface and emphasizes the appearance of wrinkles, scars and dry or flaking skin.
- Skin Comfort - Healthy skin isn’t tight and doesn’t burn, sting or itch. If yours does, you’re probably using a skin care regimen that includes harsh ingredients, which can irritate facial skin.
The SCIENCE behind Tiege Hanley
At Tiege Hanley, we know first-hand that men have unique skin needs when it comes time to clean up. Toughness and testosterone frequently go hand-in-hand, and all those masculine hormones account for unique skin attributes for which women’s products just aren’t built. Our chemist works to provide you with the most effective, highest quality products on the market. Our formulas are based on cutting-edge Korean peptide technology proven to improve the function and appearance of the skin from the inside out. We're proud to say that our AM with SPF 20 is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation.
MEN PRODUCE MORE OIL than women, which can lead to a higher risk of blemishes and skin irritations. Over-cleansing can strip essential oils and cause the skin to produce more oil to compensate. WASH removes dirt, grime and excess oil, while reducing redness and inflammation without over-drying the skin.
THICKER SKIN and thicker, more abundant facial hair demands a powerful exfoliator, and SCRUB effectively cleans and clears off dead skin cells and improves absorption of the powerful ingredients in our SUPER SERUM and ACNE products without causing irritation.
MEN NEED TO MOISTURIZE to help the skin to protect itself from damaging UV rays and environmental stressors that result in wrinkles, discoloration, acne and dehydration. AM provides light, non-greasy moisture, offers anti-aging skin protection and reduces the risk of UV-induced skin cancer. It’s so effective, we have The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. PM works hand-in-hand to reduce the daily impact of environmental skin stressors, including wind, sunlight and pollution by repairing and hydrating overnight. Most guys don’t realize the benefits and ease in moisturizing while they sleep. EYES is formulated to hydrate and treat the most delicate area of a guy’s face—under the eyes.
All of our products are fragrance-free to avoid skin irritation. The scents in our products are from carefully selected natural extracts.
Grounded in the science of skin care, all Tiege Hanley systems are comprised of products formulated and combined to clean, restore and protect even the toughest guy’s skin. Even better, they deliver real results at affordable prices.
At Tiege Hanley, we believe skin care for men should be simple, affordable and effective. That’s why we designed, formulated and tested our products to work seamlessly together within specific skin care systems. We built each system around a 30 day regimen to give guys a simple, healthy skin care approach they can use with confidence.
