What gives off that you are aged or are in its process, more than the lines on your face? Nothing more prominent than this, we tell you! While there is nothing wrong with aging and it is as natural as red apples and yellow bananas, why not slow down the process? We are not telling you don’t age; we only want you to age fine as wine, slowly with time for the best future results.
To let it happen for the men (without dunking themselves into the vast skincare products that there is), we decided to review one of the best: Jack Black Line Smoother.
Why You Need to Care for Fine Lines Early
It is said that your late twenties are a good time to start caring for aging skin. However, there is actually no harm in starting early. In fact, if you can target lowering premature signs of aging, you will have better skin when compared to letting the aging happen and then target the lines.
But you may wonder, with so many products that say to work with fine lines and aging, what can be the one that really works? This product in question today may be just the one to start as a basic, potent one. Let’s break it down for you.
Jack Black Line Smoother Review
Let’s dive into this review.
- IMPROVE SKIN: Jack Black Line Smoother is a fast-acting glycolic acid treatment that smooths skin and reduces wrinkles and dark spots. This oil-free, vitamin-enriched formula improves skin tone, texture, and clarity.
The star ingredient of the product is 10% glycolic acid, which is an AHA. This acid is derived naturally from fruits such as sugarcane, in the case of this. Glycolic acid promotes cell turnover and dissolves dead skin cells sitting on the top layer on your skin. It also evens out any discoloration that was caused due to sun damage or age spots, for that matter.
This is another superstar of antioxidants for aging skin. It protects the skin by fighting against free radical damage. It can also work to reduce UV damage on the skin while moisturizing it. It both nourishes and protects your aging skin.
Aloe has a lot of benefits for aging skin. It contains both vitamins A and C and is also a natural source of enzymes for the skin. The inclusion of aloe in it and its application on the face helps those with acne issues other than aging skin.
This is also a good ingredient for acne-prone aging skin. It can repair and soothe damages caused by acne and blemishes on the skin. It relieves from eczema and dryness on the skin.
This is a gentle moisturizer. But having allantoin in it doesn’t mean that you will get moisturizing benefits from the product. It is only a chemical exfoliator that has mild moisturizing properties.
This can work to lighten your skin and balance out your complexion. It also stops the darkening process of skin that the sun causes. Hence, a win-win from all sides!
The product has grapeseed and lavender oils.
You can put it on both your face and neck area. It would be better to use it at night, in your bedtime skincare routine. If you are using it during the daytime, be sure to add SPF as glycolic acid can make you photosensitive. Also, you shouldn’t start using the product twice daily if you haven’t already used acids on your face before. Wait it out before you do it twice a day. Also, could you not use it immediately after shaving? Also, you will experience tingling when you start off.
- Instantly removes dry, flaky skin from the nose, chin, and eyebrow/beard area.
- Stops those from recurring.
- Reduces redness.
- Improves overall skin tone.
- Improves fine lines around the eye area.
- Reduces the size of pores.
- Fades age spots on the face.
- Lightens forehead wrinkles.
- Tingling sensation when applied for the first time.
Is it the right product for dry/sensitive skin?
Yes, this is suited for dry skin and even sensitive skin types. If you want anti-aging benefits from it, it will provide you with just that. However, if you are seeking moisturization benefits for your dry skin, with something that will ward off signs of aging and at the same time moisturize your face, you can go for Dry Erase from the same brand.
Can you use it with a moisturizer?
If you want to use a separate moisturizer as a layer on top, you can always do that with the moisturizer mentioned above. Layering is cool with this product when you do not put conflicting ingredients. For example, if you are a dry skin type, layering glycolic acid products with vitamin C or topical retinol cream might be really bad for you. So while you are using it with a moisturizer, just be careful of conflicting ingredients. And if you can't do that bit of research, then wait till the smoother is absorbed into your face before carrying on with the rest of the steps.
Does it line up well in a shaving routine?
Yes, it does. However, you will have to go by this order: cleanse, shave, soothe with aloe gel or a hydrating toner, then go with the Line Smoother and finish with a moisturizer.
We understand that skincare can be daunting for you as a man who has never done more than a splash of water on the face when you are sweating too much. But you know what, quite a lot of men these days are heavily into skincare.
With good skincare that incorporates good skincare ingredients, we can tackle many issues that otherwise would have been just left in the face to pass or not to pass with time. Hence, for sun damage, wrinkles, premature aging, we suggest you go for something that treats the concern like our Jack Black Line Smoother reviewed, for the best results.
