Have air conditioners, infections and murky weather joined forces to leave your skin dry, grey, or irritated? – Here comes a handfull of top healthy skin essentials for you, gentlemen.
Organic Skincare for Men:
Winter In The City Edition
Why “winter in the city”?
Because it has recomMENdations different from what I’d put together for a “ski slopes winter”. The following tips are not for the icy, arctic temperatures – they are designed to soothe air-con-tired winter skin during a typical dull winter we experience in Europe these days: hardly ever below zero, rainy, grey, with everybody sneezing.
1 DAILY BIOTIC COMPLEX, OGAENICS
Just one capsule a day picks you up with a mix of healthy fibres, seven probiotic strains and Vitamin B3: all of them 100% natural. Healthy gut microbiome = healthy body and healthy skin.
30 capsules, €32.90
60 capsules, €54.90

2 PHYTO BALANCE FLUID EQUALIZE, I+M
i+m are Berlin’s oldest organic and vegan skincare brand – quality skincare in a modern design. The PHYTO BALANCE series was developed to help with irritated skin. The Fluid Equalize has a non sticky gel-like, silky texture and is infused with powerful soothing botanical extracts.
Certifications include: COSMOS and Vegan Society.

3 SKIN RESCUE, LOVELY DAY
Another “Berliner” to love!
The young label Lovely Day Botanicals (that you might have spotted on BEAUTYCALYPSE.com already – on several occasions) has quickly developed an ardent following: their all-natural products are efficient, affordable and come in that sleek packaging no millennial can resist. Skin Rescue is a lightweight oil blend designed to soothe and regenerate dry, irritated or acne-prone skin. Smells great and is quickly absorbed.
And no: it won’t make you look like a Smurf 😉

4 COFFEE BEAN COFFEINE EYE CREAM, 100% PURE
This eye cream has shook la casa BEAUTYCALYPSE to the very foundations. De-puffing skincare that actually does have said impact?? Yup. We bought the 8 ml small size to test it, and we’re loving it from day one!
Made from organic and natural ingredients only (coffee and tea extracts, herbal extracts and vitamins), this light cream smells like a cookie stipped in coffee and makes the tender undereye area visibly firmer and actually flatter.
Tip: check the ingredients list in advance to see if you’re allergic to any component.

5 GOLD LUMINOSITY SERUM, ILEUR
If your skin is dry and develops redness and inflammations, and you know you’re sensitive towards herbs, botanicals or essential oils, try this 5-ingredient hyaluronic acid serum. It’s made of water, sodium hyaluronate, dimethyl-sulfone (MSM), algin, gold (CI 77480), mangosteen peel extract, and silver (no nano particles) and is designed to provide maximum hydration with an ultra-soothing bonus effect.
It also comes in three sizes, so picking the smallest to test would be a good idea for those with a particularly sensitive skin type.
