Actor Simon Rex is moving into the skin-care recreation. Recognized for his roles in Pink Rocket and Bupkis, to call a number of, Rex now has co-founder of the boys’s skin-care model MOX Skincare—a line that stresses the significance of self-care rituals—so as to add to the resume. The 49-year-old lately chatted with us in regards to the endeavor, and why it was a little bit of an “evolution” for him.
Why this launch?
I’m a co-founder of MOX Skincare as a result of I feel it’s time for males to lose the macho stigma that’s been the narrative for many years. Issues like “Sleep while you’re useless,” “Actual males don’t present their emotions,” and “Solely women use moisturizer” are previous and corny now. We want eight hours of sleep, we have to train and eat wholesome, and we have to maintain our pores and skin! It’s virtually 2024, and the caveman mind-set is performed out. Let’s evolve, guys. I’m right here to assist; I handled my physique like a rollercoaster for many of my life, and now it’s time to deal with it like a temple.
What was the toughest half about getting the road market?
Discovering our target market. Males’s skincare is fairly boring, nevertheless it doesn’t need to be! We wished to determine the section of the market that is able to take motion, that is able to tackle males’s skincare. Most males hit a sure level the place they understand they should begin taking good care of themselves as a result of none of us are getting any youthful. We wished to seek out that group and inform them, “Hey, it’s truly cool to maintain your pores and skin!”
Are there any skin-care therapies you swear by?
As an actor, I’ve bought to look good…however as a former caveman myself, I by no means actually knew a lot about skincare apart from sporting sunblock as a preventative measure. A buddy of mine owns a spa in New York Metropolis, and he will get mud from the Lifeless Sea shipped from 1000’s of miles away, and that all the time makes my pores and skin feel and look nice.
I’ve additionally discovered sleep and weight loss plan to be life-changing—consuming clear, ingesting loads of water and staying away from fried meals is the transfer. It’s fairly easy; I feel we make it more durable than it needs to be. I like MOX Skincare and the package I’ve created, as a result of the entire course of takes solely a minute, and all of us have time for that!
Are there every other skin-care or self-care manufacturers you like?
Till I began my self-care journey, I actually wasn’t a lot of a skin-care fanatic, and that was one of many causes I wished to be part of MOX Skincare. Engaged on MOX helped me uncover what I like, what nurtures my pores and skin, and what makes me really feel like I’m taking good care of myself. By co-founding MOX, I wished to assist different males really feel the identical means and make a top quality product designed for males, so we don’t need to steal our girlfriend, spouse, or accomplice’s skin-care merchandise anymore. It causes fights, fights result in stress, and stress is the underlying reason for so many well being issues.
What do you do to your personal self-care and wellness?
My primary self-care and wellness ritual is my MOX routine. We created ‘Simon’s Superset’, a quite simple three-step package that makes taking good care of your pores and skin straightforward. The package contains my three go-to MOX merchandise: Invigorating Peppermint Cleanser, Multi Nutrient Serum and Mineral Hydrating Mist, all filled with important vitamins to nourish and energize your pores and skin in only a minute. Doing my each day skin-care routine makes me really feel my greatest and begins my day on a robust be aware.
Aside from taking good care of my pores and skin, for self-care and wellness, I all the time be sure that I train 5 days per week. I like mountain climbing, Pilates, driving my bike, weights, something! So long as I sweat and transfer my physique, I’m completely satisfied. It additionally helps with psychological well being, so it’s a no brainer.
I reside by the Hippocrates quote, “Let meals be thy drugs and drugs be thy meals,” so I eat very clear, too. I additionally discover it actually necessary to giggle lots, so my YouTube historical past is usually stand-up comedians and comedy content material. All of us have to giggle extra on this insane world we’re dwelling in.
