mens skincare

We’re breaking the silence to help you understand the best, most efficient, and easiest skin care routine for men you’ve ever heard of before.

Skin care shouldn’t be (and doesn’t need to be) an extensive procedure that takes up half of your morning. It should be simple. With the right men’s skin care products, you’re ready to go.

If you’re a total newb, don’t stress. We’ve got you covered.

Ready for the easiest skin care routine of your life? Buckle your seatbelts—get ready to learn something new.


First and foremost, we need to get your face sparkling clean. A gentle everyday cleanser will do the trick.

Wet your face with warm water first. This will open up your pores so the cleanser can do its job.

After your face is nice and wet, take a few pumps of your cleanser and rub it into your skin in a circular motion. Continue this for just a minute or two to really get your pores clean.

Rinse off the cleanser with some warm water and dab your face dry with a clean towel.

Viola—your face is clean.

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliating your skin will help remove build-up of dead skin, dirt, and grease that settles in your pores and causes breakouts. In a typical exfoliant, there might be small beads or fine sugar that work to gently remove impurities from the surface of your skin without hurting or damaging it.

Exfoliating your skin should be done once a week, not every day. Choose a day in your schedule that you want to exfoliate and replace your cleansing routine with this.

Open up your pores with some warm water and apply a dime-sized amount to your skin. Gently rub your exfoliating scrub into your face in the circular motions.

Move the scrub around the full surface of your face until you feel the scrub start to disintegrate.

Rinse off the scrub with warm water and pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Step 3: Moisturize

Last, but certainly not least, it’s time to moisturize.

There are many different kinds of moisturizers out there and it’s important that you find one that best fits your skin type. If you’re unsure of your skin type, try something safe like a lite daily moisturizer. This type of cream won’t clog your pores or add any additional grease or sheen. It will easily soak into the skin and leave you with plump, refreshed skin all day long.

We highly recommend adding a moisturizer with SPF in it to your daily routine.

We know what you’re thinking and the answer is, “no”—SPF isn’t just for the beach.

We are constantly faced with harsh UV rays and the only way to ensure you’re fully protected is with a layer of SPF. Try a moisturizer with SPF 20 or more for daily wear.

That’s it! Just these three simple steps will result in happy, healthy skin. Best part? It takes no more than five minutes of your morning.


There are a few more things you can add to your skin care routine that will still keep it simple but will help your skin look and feel the best it ever has.


Anti-aging treatments aren’t just for women. Anti-aging skin care for men is something that you might want to consider soon. Men can start showing signs of aging at the age of 25. If you want to get ahead or stop aging in its tracks, try an anti-aging cream with retinol.

A retinol cream can help diminish fine lines, wrinkles and achieve smoother, firmer, more evenly toned skin. Who doesn’t want that?

Don’t worry, it won’t add too much work to your skin care routine. Apply a retinol cream to cleansed face before bed and wake up looking younger.


Unfortunately, we all fall victim to under eye bags and puffiness. Thankfully, there’s something you can do to help you look less like a zombie and more like a human being. It’s called eye serum.

Eye serum for men is made a little different than it is for women. This type of skin care treatment delivers superior hydrating benefits to soothe, smooth, and plump the skin under the eye.

To use this serum, apply to your face after it has been cleaned in the morning. This will help you keep your fresh and awake appearance all day long.

There you have it—a simple skin care routine that any guy can manage. In just three simple steps, you can have clean, healthy, and protected skin all day long. Healthy skin is happy skin and happy skin is clear skin. You can finally say goodbye to blemishes and bumps without changing your morning routine too much.
