The fall and holidays are coming up, so be sure to check out these invaluable tips below by Diana Schmidte for RéVive Skincare, to get ready for the next black tie event.
“The grooming process happens rather quickly and speed is of the essence. The most important step is for the man to have healthy, fresh and moisturized skin. When the skin looks flawless, there is little need for makeup. I first cleaned his skin using RéVive Cream Cleanser, ($75) and then toned it with RéVive Balancing Toner ($65).”
“All men love the application of moisturizers and skincare. It feels nice, like a mini little facial. Other than that it's pretty basic. You have to be fast with men. No man likes to sit in your chair for hours. I applied RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream, ($195) all over his face and neck. Beard or no beard, you must still cleanse and moisturize the face.”
“I always use RéVive Intensité Volumizing Eye Serum, ($350) on my clients. The eye serum drastically helps tired eyes; it improves the delicate skin under and around eyes, leaving them refreshed!”
PRE-EVENT SKINCARE TIPS
“Red carpet or no red carpet, every man needs to be caring for his skin on a daily basis. This includes on the most basic level: cleansing the face morning and night, toning the skin, moisturizing the skin and daily application of serums, eye creams and SPF.”
FACIAL HAIR HOW-TO’S
“Using my beard trimmer, I remove stray hairs and create the perfect length and shape based off of their own face shape. For red-carpet looks, I always wet shave the neck area to create the perfect lines rather than leaving the beard to grow out on its own. Beards require some maintenance in order for them to look red-carpet friendly.”
“All hair products were by American Crew: Alternator and Firm Hold Styling Gel. I used Alternator to wet the hair. I blow-dried using my fingers for the sides and back of the hair. On top, I used a medium size round brush taking random sections to create shine and a little extra volume. I blow dried the hair back and away from the face. I finished by applying American Crew Firm Hold Styling Gel through the hair for an all-day hold and effortless groomed perfect looking hair.”
“From start to finish, the grooming process takes about 30 minutes. 15 minutes for hair, 15 minutes for skin. If I need to trim or cut the hair we add another 30-45 minutes and I would start with the cut. When no cut is involved, I start with hydrating and caring for the skin. Once skincare is finished, I move on to the hair look. Once the hair is complete, I take another look at the face, use concealers if needed, lip balm, and a little anti-shine. For all my clients, I like to use as little makeup as possible which is exactly why skincare products matter most to me.”
“Men in Hollywood take great care of their skin. They are surrounded by specialists who educate them on the importance of proper skincare. Révive is at the top of my list because it is truly a complete line of skincare products created for both men and women. It was developed by Harvard graduate Dr. Gregory Bays Brown and utilizes the most cutting edge science and technology to regenerate the appearance of healthy, youthful, perfectly hydrated looking skin. It is a fact that our skin changes as we age. What is required of a 20 year old to achieve great looking skin will be much different than a 30 or 40 year old. This applies to both men and women.”
