LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Brad Pitt and George Clooney both hit the Palm Springs International Film Festival this weekend, the first of many red carpets the stars will be on in the next few weeks including the upcoming Golden Globes where they are going up against other studly nominees, Ryan Gosling, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Fassbender.
What a handsome bunch!
“The biggest skin problems men face are oiliness, tired-looking eyes and not shaving correctly,” according to men’s skincare maven Patricia Finn, Vice President of Jack Black, a grooming line that counts Bruce Willis and Jeremy Piven as fans.
Here’s how your guy can look skintastic like the stars!
BRAD PITT THE SKIN HE’S IN: Gorgeous, young looking skin SKIN SUGGESTION: Try at-home facial treatments such as microdermabrasion or exfoliation to give your skin a smooth, youthful glow, without the cost of the spa or dermatologist visit PATRICIA’S PICK: Jack Black’s DIY Power Peel Multi-Acid Resurfacing Pads. The potent formula offers results similar to a professional strength peel by exfoliating, increasing firmness and improving tone without the downtime. Leaves skin with a healthy-looking glow, perfect prior to a big event.
GEORGE CLOONEY THE SKIN HE’S IN: Soft hands SKIN SUGGESTION: Reach for a super-emollient hand cream to keep hands smooth and silky to avoid rough, cracked skin. PATRICIA’S PICK: Varying cold and hot temperatures can strip essential moisture from the skin leaving it dry and flaky. George can prep his hands for all the handshaking he’ll be doing with a hydrating, non-greasy cream like Jack Black’s Industrial Strength Hand Healer, which can help say goodbye to rough, cracked skin.
RYAN GOSLING THE SKIN HE’S IN: Smooth skin SKIN SUGGESTION: A great shave starts with a superior shave cream. A beard lube conditioning shave cream offers transparent, lotion-like formula that allows you to see where you are shaving for fewer shaving mishaps. PATRICIA’S PICK: Jack Black’s Beard Lube Conditioning Shave is a pre-shave oil, shave cream and skin conditioner-in-one, which penetrates whiskers and hydrates skin for a comfortable, super close shave.
LEONARDO DICAPRIO THE SKIN HE’S IN: Soft, delicious lips! SKIN SUGGESTION: Lip balms have come a long way from fruity scents and high-gloss shine, and men are realizing the benefits of a cared-for and kissable pout. PATRICIA’S PICK: Keep lips conditioned and supple with Jack Black’s Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25. This is a great preventative measure to seal in moisture, avoid dry lips and protect from external exposure. Plus, the SPF 25 sunscreen is an added bonus.
MICHAEL FASSBENDER THE SKIN HE’S IN: Youthful eyes SKIN SUGGESTION: Keep the thin skin around the eyes looking young and fresh by using a light anti-aging cream. PATRICIA’S PICK: Jack Black’s Protein Booster Eye Rescue is jam-packed with skin-firming peptides and antioxidants, which can help keep guys looking bright-eyed and positively ageless.
