A Man's Perspective

A Man's Perspective


Yong-Li Zhou


Following on from an article about men's skin that we published earlier this week, we interviewed Hugh (face of the brand) to get a bit of perspective on his skin and his skincare routine.

Q: What skin type do you have?
A: I have very oily skin in most areas like around my forehead, temples and around my cheek bones. But I get very dry skin particularly around where more facial hair grows like my chin and sideburns, so I guess I could have combination skin type.

Q: What are some of your skin concerns?
A: I get bad acne around my cheeks, temple and forehead and sometimes under my bottom lip. It doesn't usually hurt, but I really don't like the redness. But because of my combination skin, I get dry flaky skin around my jawline.

Q: At what age did you first start using skincare?
A: I basically started using skincare as soon as we had developed Enbacci. I was about 16 at the time and it was when I first started to get really oily skin, so puberty hit at a pretty convenient time.

Q: What does your skincare regime include?
A: In the morning, I use a scrub, gel cleanser, toner and moisturiser. In the evening, I only cleanse and tone my skin.

Q: How often do you use skincare products?
A: I find that I have to use the scrub everyday. If I miss out on that step, then I can expect something to go wrong, really really wrong. So I generally use all the products I mentioned everyday.

Q: Which is your favourite Enbacci product and why?
A: Definitely the Vitis Vinifera Rejuvenating Essence. I love it because it makes my skin feel so freshy fresh, smooth and so bouncies (translation: supple).

Q: What is one skincare tip you would share with other men out there?
A: Actually use skincare products so that you don't look like a rock face. You don't want to hit 30 and look like a 60 year old.
