Contrary to popular belief, male grooming is not just about slapping on some aftershave and a quick spritz of deodorant before hitting the streets. Yes, an active lifestyle means that we need skincare products that are quick and convenient, but it’s also about care and commitment. It’s about being comfortable and confident in your own skin. And it’s not for sissies. That’s why leading sportsman and Captain of Bafana Bafana, Itumeleng Khune, trusts Vaseline MEN for his skincare products both before and after his exercise.
When you exercise, you put your body through some strenuous exercise, which causes your body to overheat and dehydrate. Believe it or not, this is actually made worse when you hit the showers afterwards as the hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils which leads to dry skin. This is why it’s so important to moisturisee after a hectic workout or big game. This is what Itumeleng has to say about post-game skincare.
“My body is always being pushed to the limits. So after a big game, I like to cool my skin off with Vaseline MENbody COOLING LOTION and CREAM.” It contains Stratys-3™ to deeply nourish Itumeleng’s tired, dry skin for 24 hours, and menthol to give his overworked, overheated body a refreshingly cool feeling – ready to tackle tomorrow’s game.
Intensive exercise can result in a bit of rough and tumble, leaving you with cuts, chaffing and bruises. We recommend applying Vaseline BLUESEAL Petroleum Jelly to areas of your skin that are prone to chaffing. It’s also perfect for application on properly cleaned cuts and abrasions as it stops them from bleeding and prevents them from becoming infected by creating a protective barrier.
Vaseline knows that when leading an active lifestyle, both on and off the field, it’s important to have a fast-absorbing lotion that can work quickly and effectively for the ultimate care and convenience. Itumeleng recommends Vaseline MENbody FAST ABSORBING BODY LOTION and CREAM as it tackles dryness in 15 seconds flat and is perfect for the active man on the go.
