The Skincare Essentials Every Man Needs

The Skincare Essentials Every Man Needs

By: Beau Vuillemot • Feb 14, 2022

Does the phrase "skincare routine" scare you more than any gruesome horror film or true crime podcast? Dial it back a bit because we've got you covered. Taking care of your skin is important at any age, and it can be done in the time it takes you to get through the first few songs of your morning playlist. A basic skincare routine doesn't have to involve a laboratory of creams and serums. And you definitely don't need any confusing accessories like a jade face roller or crystals. No, let's keep it stupidly simple.

In fact, we can boil it down to three essentials that will keep your skin healthy and nourished. Yes, just three! That still leaves you plenty of time to watch Seinfeld reruns on repeat or try to beat your mom at Wordle -- or whatever your morning routine entails. No judgement here!


Cleanser

Getting your skin clean is just the first step. Whether you’re rolling around in a construction site all day or sitting in front of a laptop for eight hours, your skin accumulates its fair share of dirt and grime. That’s where a good cleanser comes in. You might ask, “I wash my face. Isn’t that good enough?” I’m afraid not, my friend! Washing your face twice a day is just a start when it comes to tackling clogged pores, acne, and more. You need a good everyday cleanser to ensure your skin is being nourished, while also maintaining healthy oils that keep your skin functioning. Your skin needs a balance of cleansing and maintaining these oils to both look and feel good, and when you have a good cleanser, this makes the job a whole lot easier.

Our Charcoal Face Wash is the perfect place to start, with its formula enriched with coconut charcoal, aloe vera, olive oil, and vitamin C and E. All these ingredients work together to purify skin and keep it moisturized all day long. Consider this your skin’s main wingman – never leave the house without consulting this guy first. 

Toner

After a good cleanse, comes a good toner. If the moisturizer is Iron Man taking down extraterrestrials and global-sized super villains, think of toner as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, following after to make sure everything is good on the streets. Toners give your skin a much-needed dose of nutrients and help balance your complexion, which can take a beating after prolonged exposure to sun, wind, and other harsh elements. You may not know it, but your skin goes through a lot in the course of a day! Only a few drops should do it, as a small amount is usually enough to calm irritation and reduce redness.

Our Moisturizing Toner uses natural ingredients like cucumber and bergamot to heal blemishes, reduce oil production, and prevent acne. You can depend on it to unclog pores and treat a variety of skin types. And yes, it smells good. Never underestimate the power of a good scent – smelling like a caveman is so 20th century.

Moisturizer

Ah, the final step! See? We told you this would be relatively painless! Keeping your skin well hydrated is a year-round task – this is not a mission to be taken lightly. The older we get, the less our skin is able to retain moisture, so unless you want to end up looking like Freddy Krueger, we highly suggest you invest in a good moisturizer. Your future mirror reflection will thank you. Not sure which moisturizer works for your skin type? Water-based moisturizers typically work the best for oily skin, while heavier oil-based formulas are recommended for dry skin.

Our Face Moisturizer Cream is the next best thing to finding the actual Fountain of Youth. (If you’re choosing that over a good skincare routine, well, good luck with that, buddy.) Formulated with jojoba, shea butter, ginger, and more, it hydrates, protects, and restores skin for a youthful glow that will fool even your mother. Yep, it's that good.


Extra credit: after-shave balm

We know, we know. We said your skincare routine could be done in 3 steps, but this is for the guys who want to go the extra distance and really level up their skin. Our After-Shave Balm is essential for anyone shaving on a regular basis. Razor burn doesn't stand a chance against its soothing sandalwood formula. Applying just a small amount of our balm soothes that nasty post-shave burn instantly and leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. And best of all? You can use it on whatever skin type you have.
