Have you ever looked at the ingredients in your shampoo, soap or makeup? Did it make you wonder for a moment only to dismiss the thought, because it was too big of a rabbit hole to go down?
A couple years ago, I had those thoughts. I loved my products so I’d keep using them. Of course, my skin was never really amazing, but I sure smelled good.
Then, 2 years ago I finally decided to jump down the rabbit hole. I’ve been shampoo-free ever since, and that’s only the beginning.
2 Men Talk Skin
What you’ll get on this podcast is 2 men discussing non-toxic skin care, which is in and of itself likely pretty amusing for many listeners.
Do I use soap? What about a toner? Are scrubs and masks really important?
The questions above are all questions I’ve asked as I tried to optimize my own skin. It still sounds a bit odd for me to admit, but as a man it’s time for me to share. Just like poop is taboo in our society, skin care for men is too.
The bottom line is that if you’ve struggled with acne or other skin conditions it’s very likely that you’ve experienced a great deal of pain. As discussed on the podcast, it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. We would all benefit if we cared more about lessening our toxic burden and having great looking skin.
Kevin Gianni and his wife, Annmarie, have done a ton of work and research on two things I care deeply about: cancer and skin care. In the process, they have truly created a higher standard of skin care products, which I absolutely love and respect. Their company is located at annmariegianni.com. I really don’t ever want to have cancer, and after struggling with acne for over 10 years I’m hyper in tune with it.

Massive thanks to Kevin for taking time out of his busy schedule to come on the show. And just so you know I do use the honey mask daily on my lips. Before bed, I use the Neroli Cleanser and I really like the Repair Serum. In fact, I like it so much that I need to get more, because I just ran out.
What is your skin care routine?
