5+1 essential beauty products for a man

Mens skin care is something very important in order to keep your skin young and fresh, especially in the hot weather.

Here are 5 man beauty products you need for a flawless skincare routine this summer:

The cleaning gel : CLARINS

As gentle as cleansing milk, and as effective as soap, this creamy mousse floats away make-up, pollutants and pore-clogging debris. Softens, smoothes and soothes. Clean-rinse formula neutralises the drying effects of hard water.

The moisturizer: CLINIQUE FOR MEN

Lightweight formula controls oil for a matte, shine-free look. Oil-free hydration improves skin strength. Smooth on the face and neck.

**BEAUTY EDITOR’S PICK:

YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT ALL-IN-ONE GLOW

A skin-loving, all-in-one medium coverage tinted moisturizer with SPF 23 that evens complexion, eliminates dullness and smooths fine lines. This good-for-you product is made in France with the finest pigments and ingredients that respect and care for the skin. The formula is oil-free, non comedogenic, talc-free and dermatologist tested.

The scrub or exfoliant: SHISEIDO

An invigorating face scrub that eliminates roughness, blackheads, and dull surface cells with triple deep-cleansing action. Gives dull fatigued skin a look of fresh energy.

 Concealer: BIOTHERME HOMME

Combined with signs of fatigue and stress, eye cream is inevitable in the skincare routine.

The perfume: TOM FORD COSTA AZZURRA ACQUA

Cool. Salty. Refreshing. Costa Azzurra Acqua merges cool air and refreshing waters as one. The salty waves of wind and sea collide with the warmth of the sun on the body, tempering its pulsating, red-blooded heat.

REY bonus? Sun cream: KORRES

A new generation, silicone-free suncare collection that visibly reduces wrinkles and brown spots, as reported by dermatologists.

MSGM: TheSS20 show at Pitti Uomo

MSGM has revealed its 10th anniversary collection in Florence, during Pitti Uomo.

Camp collar shirts in lobster, poppy, or bandana paisley prints were mashed against pants and track jackets in lividly clashing two-tone leopard print. Sebago boat shoes and linen blousons and shorts featured naive graphics and heartfelt scrawled messages of summer love. A collaboration with the painter Norbert Bisky produced an attractive fractured portrait used as prints on shirting, shorts, and perforated nylon vests or in panels on the tailoring.

FARAH: The SS19 collection

“For our High Summer collection, we took to the hedonistic shores of the Balearic Islands, namely Ibiza, to recapture the spirit of youthful mischief that was inherent in the so-called ‘White Isle’ in the 1990s” mentioned FARAH design team.

The SS19 Farah collection consists of all time classic essentials, beach-inspired piece, geometric-printed shirts, striped sweaters and basic tees mostly in pastel hues.

Throughout the collection you’ll find a range of timeless silhouettes that channel a true British feel. Informed by the Balearic coastline, the colour palette offers up sun-bleached pinks, greens, and blues, which are punctuated by neon accents that recall the bright lights of Ibiza’s famed super clubs, whilst highlighting key pieces with a pattern resembling the Terrazzo stone, a material used frequently in Balearic architecture.

Discover the collection on FARAH online.

Editor's Pick: Rankin x Sergei x Husky Loops - Tempo

Making a global splash in Hozier's music video for Take Me to Church, no one can forget how mesmerizing Sergei Polunin is in motion.

Lucky for us, the Ukrainian dancer has published a new video project earlier this summer and it has become one of our favourites here at REY.

Polunin linked up with photographer Rankin for a video. Shot for Hunger TV, the project takes the form of a music video. Polunin is captivating as he performs to Tempo by the alt-rock group Husky Loops.

One of the most inspirational video clips we've seen lately - Enjoy!!

London Fashion Week Men's SS19: THE TREND REPORT

The latest London Fashion Week Men's sets the bar for the Spring/Summer 2019 men's shows around the world. Here are the biggest new season menswear trends from the catwalks in the nation's capital.

Between John Lawrence Sullivan’s slim-cut leather biker suits, long-line leather overcoats and tiny nineties-style specs and Daniel W Fletcher’s slim-cut and be-harnessed trenches and skinny black tailored pieces the looks had strong references from 90s movies and trends .

Daniel W Fletcher SS19

From the movie ‘Interview with a vampire’ to ‘Matrix, we have seen it all and especially in Matthew Miller show when the street style looks have been combine with nylon-metallic elements and fabric.

Then it was all about relaxed tailoring.

From tailored tracksuit bottoms and smart khaki pieces to oversized blazers combined with wide trousers or skinny shorts, search Qasimi  SS19 for more of the looks, we have seen from villagers country looks ( see Lou Dalton or Wood Wood presentations) to the vampires and the huntsmen.

More oriental vibes with floral or embelished ''versace'' inspired patterns and aesthetic, and relaxed shirt combinations you could see in shows like Oliver Spencer and Edward Crutchley.  (The music background supported the presentations and the fashion 'journey')

I know we should note all the bright colours and combinations for the spring/summer season but 2019 seems to be quite dark and moody. The strongest colour pallet within the collections was the burgundy - wine red - purple - cloud pink..sh one in all the tones and shades. Designers like Oliver Spencer or Ben Sherman used it in almost all the looks and others kept it more specific but as the colour for the hero pieces. ( check Kiko Kostadinov)

And last but not least.... THE CROPPED TOPS or as we all know ’crop tops’. Yes, crop tops were ‘a thing’ for SS19 presentations and it looks like it will be a strong trends on menswear collections next year. From John Lawrence to Astrid Andersen, the crop top trend has made its strongest entry ever for SS19 ( well, at least for the last 15 years)
