Gentlemen, have you ever heard about skincare? routine for men

Are you properly taking care of your skin? Or do you just splash some water on your face and done? Maybe the most you do is wash it up with soap?

Don’t worry, we got you, you can do better. We can do better! skincare routine for men



FIRST, did you know that male skin tends to be about 25% thicker than that of a woman? Feeling pretty lucky right? You shouldn’t. We’re sorry to break it to you, but this doesn’t mean your skin is unbreakable. Quite the opposite! You have a higher collagen density; so, your skin produces more oil, and it results in more skin issues. Less is more, here doesn’t apply! skincare routine for men

You should take better care of your skin. Understandably, you don’t want to spend your morning in the toilet. But guess what? You don’t have to! It takes 5 to 10 minutes to make your skin glow.

Skincare is often associated with makeup. That’s why many men are sceptical about it.  Skincare is about skin’s health and makeup is more focused on aesthetics. This “daunting” task is quite simple and helps to prevent dark spots, ageing and many other skin issues. Try it for yourself! skincare routine for men




BEFORE sharing an easy peasy lemon squeezy skincare routine with you… We urge you to think about two things:

  1. Your diet

    A wise man once said: we are what we eat. Your skin is the reflection of what you eat and how much water you drink. So, take care of yourself and be mindful of your lifestyle.

  1. Your type of skin

    You don’t have the slightest idea of what type of skin you have? No worries, here’s a trick to find out. 😉

    Wash your face with just water, then wait an hour and voilà. See how your skin feels. 

    ➤ If it’s TIGHTER, you have dry and possibly sensitive skin.
    ➤ If it’s SHINY and OILY, you have oily or mixed skin (a combination of dry and oily skin).



And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for, drum roll … skincareroutine for men



A simple 3-step daily routine to feel good in your skin

STEP 1: Cleanser


Splash your face with some warm water. Take your cleanser and massage your face gently for about 30 seconds. Then rinse it off.

First step: DONE.

We recommend CeraVe Foaming Cleanser (perfect for almost any skin type).
Another option is the Cetaphil one, there are different cleansers based on the type of skin you have. On the product, you will find who it’s intended for.
For the fancy gents, we recommend Youth To The People Kale Superfood Cleanser. Very gentle and with excellent ingredients.


Here we could add ANOTHER STEP, but it’s just for those who want to go the extra mile and feel like they need it.
TREATMENT. What’s that? Well, it helps with your skin issues (acne, acne scars, breakouts, wrinkles, redness…). 
It can be a serum or an exfoliant, and it depends on what your skin needs.


The Ordinary has a great range of products to choose from, as well as Paula’s Choice. Both are great on the ingredients front, the only thing to consider is the price. How much do you want to invest in your skin?

Please let us know if you would like a blog post in which we discuss this topic in more depth.


After getting rid of all the dirt you had in your pores, your skin needs moisture and hydration. Ideally, apply a moisturiser when your face is still damp. Your skin will absorb the ingredients faster and will lock the good stuff in.

“Here they come with some heavy cream recommendations! To slather on my face and feel all greasy and sticky”.

WELL, WRONG! Here are some water creams whose feeling you won’t even notice, as if you had nothing on your face. How sick is that? 

We recommend Rovectin Clean Lotus Water Cream: lightweight, hydrating, amazing ingredients and affordable. It’s a Korean brand and as many know Korean skincare is one of the best, so check it out!

If you are more like a drug store kind of person, a better choice is Versed Dew Point Moisturising Gel Cream. The hydration is exceptional.





Now our favourite and most important step: Sunscreen
During the day your skin needs protection from sun damage, the UV rays. All your skin problems can get 10 times worse without adequate care. 

“I hate sunscreen. It’s heavy, I want to get tan!” CAN happen. But, we got you! No more white cast or greasiness on your face, here we go.

We recommend the Sun Bum Mineral SPF 30 or higher Tinted. It has a bit of colouring. Why? The tint makes sure that the sunscreen matches your skin tone, so it doesn’t look white. How awesome is that?

Do you wish for a sunscreen that has absolutely zero white casts whatsoever? 

Try the Krave Beauty Beet Shield SPF 50! It’s an online brand, and it’s perfect for every skin tone even the darker ones.

So many sunscreens are out there. Take the time to find what works best for you, to find your perfect match. It does exist. Make sure that the sunscreen you choose is at least SPF 30.

If you don’t feel like having a routine just yet, at least follow this step. Putting sunscreen on is essential for the health of your skin.


So much information on skincare to process, oh man. 

Don’t feel intimidated. We are here for you. 

You deserve to feel good in your skin, and your future self will thank you for it. skincare routine for men
