What’s the benefit of a skin care regimen?
A properly formulated skin care regimen – like the three-step Tolsom process – will leave your skin in optimal condition. Clean and protected skin feels and looks healthier.
What are the basic steps in a good skin care regimen?
Taking care of your skin is easy. The three basic steps of a good skin care regimen are cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin. Men generally add shaving to this routine.
Why shouldn’t I clean my face with soap?
Some soaps are too harsh – actually removing the necessary oils and lipids that aid in skin moisture retention.
How can I fight premature aging?
Use a sunscreen. Protecting your skin from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays is the best way to fight premature aging.
My face gets bumps all the time after shaving. What causes this?
Daily shaving irritates skin and sometimes causes little red bumps (folliculitis) on the face and neck. Another condition (pseudofolliculitis barbae) primarily affects black men. This condition happens when curly beard hairs are cut too short and they curve back into the skin and cause irritation and red bumps.
Why do people with oily skin need a moisturizer?
It is possible to have oily skin and still have low moisture content in your skin. The sebaceous glands control oil levels in your skin. This oil – called sebum – is good at lubricating skin, but it doesn’t aid moisture retention. That’s why you can have oily skin and still need a moisturizer.
Why is it important to wash my hands before applying Tolsom products to my face?
Your hands and fingernails may carry bacteria, dirt, and all sorts of nasty stuff that can infect facial pores and cause pimples or skin reactions.
Do I need to use a sponge or washcloth when I clean my face, or can I just use my hands?
There’s no need to use a sponge or washcloth to wash your face. Your hands – as long as they are clean – will work fine. What’s important is creating surface friction to remove dirt. Your hands can do that as well as a sponge or washcloth.
Is it necessary to apply sun protection on top of Tolsom Skin Protective Lotion with SPF 15?
It’s not necessary unless you are very sensitive to the sun. The Tolsom Skin Protective Lotion provides SPF 15 broad-spectrum protection against UVA/UVB rays. Applied to your face and neck, this should be enough.
Can women use Tolsom?
Yes, but Tolsom products were formulated especially for men’s skin. They contain the T-10 complex of eight moisturizing and two oil-controlling ingredients and a citrus scent.

Can people with sensitive skin use Tolsom Skin Smoothing Gel?
Yes, the Tolsom products were all tested on men with sensitive skin. But, no skin care product can guarantee that it will be 100% irritation free for everyone. All Tolsom products are thoroughly tested for skin compatibility and safety, but there are always a small number of people sensitive to certain ingredients. If you experience continued sensitivity, discontinue use of the product.
Can I use Tolsom products around my eyes?
You can use Tolsom Skin Protective Lotion with SPF 15 and Skin Smoothing Gel in the areas below the eye and on the orbital bone. None of the products should be applied directly onto the eyelid or into the eye itself.
