The beauty routine from point of view of the male audience

A morning ritual to start the day with the right energy

The beauty routine from point of view of the male audience A morning ritual to start the day with the right energy

The morning is the ideal time to devote to skincare. And not only for girls, the beauty routine is becoming a real wellness ritual also for the male audience.

Manuel Marelli, Creative e Head of buying @macondostore, tells us about his morning beauty routine.

I follow a real ritual in various steps that helps me start the day with the right energy (together with coffee, of course). Over the years I have tested all kinds of products and I have come to the conclusion that, at least in terms of skincare, I prefer to stay away from the current trends and rely on science-based brands that are able to keep their promises in terms of results.

Manuel's routine begins with a menthol-based refreshing gel cleanser, essential for deep cleansing, then moving on to the classic scrub cream or an exfoliating tonic, capable of eliminating any impurities and preparing the face for subsequent products. Then he applies an anti-aging serum with an ultralight texture, perfect to combine with a nourishing and regenerating cream.

I have dry and sensitive skin and my goal is to hydrate it thoroughly but gently, avoiding overly aggressive formulas that risk causing irritation. Spending a lot of time on the computer, I pay particular attention to the eye area which is the first to show signs of fatigue.

Specifically for the eye area, Manuel usually opts for a refreshing gel mask followed by a light emulsion, able to illuminate and eliminate any swelling. The final touch? It is the moisturizing oil for the beard: it not only softens but has a scent that immediately puts you in a good mood.
