The man might be officially retired from professional football but David Beckham is still putting his time to good use, and a good cause. Besides launching 7: The David Beckham Unicef Fund this year and creating annual collections with fast fashion retailer H&M, Golden Balls (his wife Victoria’s affectionate nickname for him) also found time to shoot and film a campaign for men’s grooming brand Biotherm Homme. Check out the one-minute video at the top of this page.
The new global ambassador for Biotherm Homme also answered a few quick questions for us.
Why is taking care of your skin today a man thing?
I don’t think it is necessarily a man thing – it’s important for both men and women to look after their skin. I just think that good quality male skincare products – like those within the Biotherm Homme range – have become more accessible to men and encouraged males to take more care of their skin.
So tell us, what’s the secret to great-looking skin in your 40s?
Taking care of yourself – both inside and out. For me, just doing the simple things can make a real difference; staying fit; taking time to moisturize; drinking lots of water; and, using the right products for your own skin type.
Are you a morning person? What’s your morning skincare routine?
Yes, I love the mornings – I have no choice with 4 children! I do the school run and then try to squeeze a workout in before my meetings start. My morning skincare routine is pretty fast – a shower and face cleanse followed by a quick moisturize. Biotherm Homme Aquapower is great in the morning; it is like a cool splash of water on my face and it is so refreshing. When I use it, I know I have done something good for my skin.
What is your favorite Biotherm Homme product?
It’s too hard to narrow it down to one favourite, I like using different products on different occasions. Aquapower is great in the morning as it is fresh and light. I love using Total Recharge when I have been travelling as it revitalizes my skin and Force Supreme gives my skin a really smooth finish.
