How to Simplify Skincare

We believe in exploring the outdoors, not a skincare aisle.

Land & Lore started with a simple goal: To give men (and anyone who identifies with Land & Lore) everything they’d need for all their skincare needs without all the fuss. If you know your skin needs some help but you’re not where to start, you’re not alone. 

Most skincare problems have simple solutions. Any of these sound like you? We can help you find your solution.

Skin showing signs of age or feeling weak?

Go for a dry oil.

Even though the term “dry oil” sounds a bit oxymoronic, it simply refers to any oil that dries quickly on your skin so you don’t get a greasy feel. A good dry oil for skin should accomplish two things: renew youthfulness and combat free radicals. Free radicals are compounds that make us look older by damaging parts of skin cells that keep complexion strong and elastic. Antioxidants inhibit free radicals, which is why they’re a primary ingredient in our dry oil along with essential omega fatty acid that rebuild complexion.

Skin still dry despite adequate hydration and a healthy diet?

You might need a moisturizer.

Many people don’t realize how big of a role hydration and diet play in skin health. However, dry skin can still occur for a number of reasons, including your unique genetic makeup. Over time, having dry skin can degrade its overall elasticity and smoothness. A daily moisturizing regimen—especially on your face—can restore hydration and resilience to skin without clogging pores.

Dark circles? Puffy, exhausted-looking eyes?

You need an eye cream.

Even some of the folks with an established skincare routine don’t realize that the skin around your eyes is quite thin, so it’s especially sensitive and prone to puffiness and discoloration. Poor circulation and excess melanin (skin pigment) production cause the infamous “eye bags,” which can result from smoking, allergies, too much salt and/or alcohol in your diet, and, of course, lack of sleep. Any eye cream should rebuild and strengthen this sensitive skin around your eyes. A good one can even out your skin tone while reducing puffiness. A great one can do both.

Skin feeling oily, or just never truly clean?

Time for a dedicated cleanser.

The vast majority of pollutants and toxins that your skin will be exposed to on any given day come from the air itself. When you couple that with the fact that the average person touches their own face hundreds of times a day, it’s easy to see why facial skin needs to be cleaned in its own special way. A good facial wash needs to be powerful enough to cleanse stubborn dirt and grease (which tend to make their way into your pores) but gentle enough to keep your skin from drying out or becoming irritated. Look for a cleanser with nutrients that can enrich your skin, too. Because “clean” and “healthy” are two totally different things when it comes to skin.

Feel like your skin is aging faster than the rest of you?

Try a serum.

Your DNA, your behavior, and your environment contribute to signs of aging in your skin like fine lines and sagging. Free radicals—those molecules that can damage DNA and cells—also take a toll on your skin’s ability to heal and rebuild as you age. Serums are formulated to restore aging skin by replenishing elasticity and hydration. It can smooth out fine lines and bring new life to dry, weathered skin.

Spend lots of time on the road, at the gym, or just away from home?

Get a wash that can do it all.

We don’t need to tell you that the chalky bar soap in your hotel room or the nuclear-orange soap from the wall dispenser at the gym probably isn’t going to give your skin the quality of wash it needs. But it is possible to find cleansers that can do a little bit of everything well, whether that’s washing your face, hair, body, or all three. The key is finding one that’s tough enough to use after a hike (or a 16-hour workday) and gentle enough to use every day without drying your skin and hair.

Everyone’s skin is different, but we all have one thing in common: We deserve healthy skin without all the fuss and complication of the typical skincare world. Land & Lore products are designed to give your stronger, nourished skin in a way that’s simple and works for you.
