The Best Ingredients For Men’s Skincare

The Best Ingredients For Men’s Skincare

&BAM is destigmatizing men’s health with science-backed treatments and accessible online doctor’s consultations. Skincare is something that too many guys neglect in their grooming and selfcare regimens, so we’re turning the tide on men’s skincare.

Our skincare range is everything a man needs – no fluff, no snake oil, and all the goodness. Here’s the breakdown of the 5 hero ingredients that make our skincare range top-shelf-products...

Ferulic Acid 🥊

Ferulic acid is a time-stopping marvel.
It’s an anti-oxidant, which means it reduces free radicals, which are unstable atoms that cause cell damage, illness, & aging.
Basically, ferulic acid prevents premature wear and tear, that can make your skin look older than it really is. It also reduces the risk of cancer caused by the sun, a pro worth mentioning if you ask us. Ferulic acid also happens to bolster the effects of other great skincare ingredients like vitamins A, C & E. This, combined with its natural ability to slow aging, makes ferulic acid one kickass skincare ingredient.
In short, you want ferulic acid on your team. And we’re chuffed to have it on ours.

ATP ⚡️

ATP is power. Literally.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a molecule responsible for driving countless biological processes at a cellular level. It catches chemical energy from the food you eat and fuels your cells so they can do what they need to do.
We’ve incorporated this supermolecule into the range because of it’s ability to regenerate skin. Applying ATP topically has been shown to directly trigger skin regeneration. This is especially important in helping the skin recover from inflammation and injury.
Your skin goes through A LOT on a daily basis, and ATP helps it recover, and stay strong.
ATP also bolsters the turnover of melanocytes, the skin cells responsible for pigmentation. This means that ATP helps to even out your skin tone and get rid of patchy colouring.
It also plays a role in boosting your skin’s immunity, helping defend you against unwanted acne-causing bacteria.
Essentially, ATP is a skincare all-rounder, treating a range of concerns at once by encouraging healing and immunity.

Retinol ⏱

Retinol is your go-to guy for a host of skin concerns.
Whether you battle with sun damage, pigmentation, signs of aging, or acne breakouts, retinol packs a punch to help you win the fight.
Basically a vitamin A shot for your skin, retinol is key to boosting skin cell turnover and collagen production.
So how does it work?
By encouraging new skin cell formation, retinol replaces old, tired skin cells with fresh, younger, new ones. When this happens, your pores are unclogged more frequently, reducing the frequency of acne and breakouts.
The faster your skin regenerates, the sooner any sun-damaged or hyperpigmented patches can heal and recover. This leaves you with a clear and even face so you can conquer each day with confidence.
Retinol is also great for bumping up collagen production. Collagen is the tissue in your skin responsible for elasticity and hydration. It makes you look young and wrinkle-free. Your skin’s collagen naturally starts declining as you get older, but retinol helps to counteract that, reducing the appearance of fine lines and evening your skin texture so you can look younger for longer.

Niacinamide 🧴

Niacinamide is just a fancy name for a form of vitamin B-3.
We’ve incorporated it into our cleanser and serum because it’s killer at locking in moisture, reducing inflammation, protecting against sun damage, and regulating your oil production so you have the perfect balance of hydration without being greasy.
Niacinamide builds your skin’s natural proteins and strengthens its protective barrier which helps it retain moisture and boost immunity to keep bacteria and dirt that cause acne, out.
By moisturising your skin, niacinamide helps to minimise the appearance of your pores, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
As if this wasn’t enough, it’s also known for its anti-inflammatory abilities, meaning it helps soothe acne, eczema, and sun damage.
It’s definitely an ingredient you want to incorporate on a daily basis, so we’re stoked to have it in our daily skincare essentials.

Salicylic Acid 🧽

Salicylic acid is a pro at gentle exfoliation.
We’re talking getting rid of all the dead skin, excess oil, dirt, and pollution your skin is exposed to on the daily. All without drying your skin out.
And that’s why we’ve incorporated it into our keep it clean facial cleanser.
Salicylic acid helps get rid of all the stuff that usually blocks your pores and causes acne. This helps your skin recover faster from zits, and prevents future breakouts.
A salicylic acid cleanser makes fresh skin as easy as 5 minutes twice a day. It just makes sense, so we had to have it in the range.

The Takeaway

Ferulic acid, ATP, retinol, niacinamide and salicylic acid are great skincare ingredients. Combined, they tackle skincare from all sides, repairing, protecting, and preventing, so you can put your best face forward.
