A Professional’s Guide to Men’s Skincare

Men’s skin rarely gets the attention it deserves, because of a few unfortunate rumors. The lack of a proper skincare routine for men affects their appearance, health, well-being—and often disappoints their loved ones! It’s time to rethink men’s skincare.

Myths, Tips, and Recommended Products

Myth #1: Skincare products are only designed for women.

False! Not only do skin care products work for everyone, there are many designed specifically for men’s skin. Whether you suffer from dry skin, oily skin, acne, signs of aging, enlarged pores, or sun damage, there’s a product waiting for you to incorporate into your morning and evening skin care routine.


Myth #2: Guys’ skin doesn’t need the same TLC.

False! Men absolutely need the same tender, love and care for their skin. Men’s skin is different from women’s because men have a high level of the hormone androgen, which often causes men’s skin to have enlarged pores and increased oil production. In addition to traditional skin care dilemmas, men’s skin can also be impacted by shaving and/or maintaining facial hair. When you use products like shaving cream and beard oil on your face, it can cause your skin to be irritated. Also, if not properly maintained, men’s skin can frequently have ingrown hairs or razor burn. Your skin will thank you when you give it the attention it’s been craving.


Myth #3: Skincare has to be time-consuming and complicated.

False! Men, it’s time to stop using your bar soap as your facial cleanser, or your hand lotion as your moisturizer. A proper men’s skincare routine can be just as quick and just as simple, but it can be far more efficient, and much better for men’s skin, if you have the right products. We’re here to show you that men’s skin care is necessary, and that you, too, can maintain a proper men’s skincare regimen that’s great, but easy. Our professionals have picked out the products that would be great for your morning or evening skincare routine!
