Last week, I had the opportunity to sit down with one of my favourite explorers, Levison Wood, to chat to him about all things skincare and travel. The new face of Clinique For Men’s #BehindTheFace campaign, Lev has travelled to more than 90 countries worldwide, including his most recent televised treks walking the length of the Himalayas and The Nile, so he knows a thing or two about being TV-ready in some of the most extreme conditions on earth. I, on the other hand, struggle to look this polished when I wake up after an eight-hour sleep in my bed.
Apart from making me feel slightly lazy, it was great to find out what made Lev choose to partner with Clinique. Their #BehindTheFace campaign is set to inspire others to embrace and expose who they truly are, or the man they hope to become, and it all kicks off with the launch of their Clinique for Men 2 in 1 Skin Hydrator & Beard Conditioner. Far from your usual moisturiser, it grooms facial hair, while treating and hydrating the skin underneath. I often find myself avoiding applying moisturiser to my stubble area, so the skin beneath suffers as a result. This fast-absorbing, lightweight moisturiser is designed for both facial hair and skin, so it softens facial hair and hydrates skin without adding shine. Thanks to Clinique, it is time for the beard to get some love too.
You can check out our chat in the video below, which includes a sneak preview on where Lev will walking next. It promises to be a cracker:
