I can still remember the day when it was considered taboo for a man to take care of himself and take pride in his appearance, now, some men (my husband included) are taking longer in the bathroom to get ready than their wives and girlfriends. I also remember the day when you would walk down the beauty aisle and only see products targeted towards women. Now many companies have entire lines and collections designed especially for men’s needs, making it a lot easier for them to have healthy looking skin that, not only looks great, but feels amazing. No more dipping into your personal collection.
Derek knows the importance of following a simple skin routine and what a huge difference it can make in the appearance of his skin, which is probably why his skin is so perfect and he looks like he’s still 18. Although he does suffer from dry skin from time to time, there are simple steps he takes to fix this problem and feel confident in the way he looks. With thanks to Nivea Men Originals line, which is a complete range of moisturising skin care products that relieve dry and tight skin for a relaxed and cared skin feeling.

Derek now knows that he must prepare his skin before he shaves, not only to clean his skin but to clear it of any dirt and oil to get a closer, more smoother shave. Nivea Men Originals Exfoliating Face Scrub comes in a glossy blue upside down squeeze tube with a clear foaming gel, with tiny blue scrub particles enriched with vitamin E, mineral and menthol.
