BasicMen’s Skincare Routine That Every Man Can Follow

Navigating the labyrinth of men’s grooming and skincare has become the hardest part of building your ownmen’s skincare routine. And with the men’s skincare industry ever-growing, finding high-grade products that work isn’t getting any easier. 

Which products are necessary? And which aren’t as important? 

Despite this, building a basic skincare regime from the ground up doesn’t need to be an impossible task. We’ve got you covered with this 6-step men’s skincare routine. 

It’s simple enough for anyone to follow - check it out!

Step 1 - Cleanse 

First things first, a goodmen's skincare routine typically starts with a cleanser. After all, it’s better to work with a clean palette. 

Essentially, the cleanser will remove sweat, dirt, dead skin cells, and other impurities from your skin. This helps by unclogging your pores,preventing acne, and helping the skin to breath. 

For those on the hunt for a high-grade cleanser, you can’t go wrong with The Groomed Man Co’sFace Fuel Cleanser. With key ingredients like activated charcoal, green tea extract, and marshmallow root extract - this cleanser can get rid of dirt and oil while maintaining your skin’s oil balance.

Step 2 - Exfoliate 

Now it’s time to get rid of the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. 

An exfoliating scrub works by physically sloughing away the skin cells to unclog pores, prevent acne, and even your skin tone. Though on top of all of this, your exfoliator will also help your other skincare products work much better - especially with all of the dead skin out of the way. 

Baxter’s Facial Scrub is perfect for not only toning, exfoliating, and smoothing the skin, but also promoting cell renewal. 

Step 3 - Shaving Cream 

Shaving can wreak havoc on our skin, often leading a path to ingrown hairs, burns, cuts, andskin irritation. So, it’s vital to have a shaving routine in place that’s designed to support our skin. 

After taking the time to prep your skin for a shave, you should be reaching for a quality shaving cream (because dry shaving is a big no-no). By using a cream with quality lather, you can create a barrier between the razor and your skin. This will prevent friction and reduce your chances of getting a burn or cut. 

This luxuryshaving cream by Bluebeards Revenge is paraben free, with additional ingredients designed to target issues like razor burn. Plus, the 100 ml tub is designed to last up to 3 months.

Step 4 - After Shave  

Once you’ve finished shaving, your skin may feel a bit raw. This is where an aftershave can come in handy. 

Aftershave is designed to hydrate, heal, and soothe the skin post shave - with a refreshing fragrance to accompany. 

For a soothing and rejuvenating aftershave that nourishes the skin, try thisNo.9 Bay Rum Aftershave by Layrite. 

Step 5 - Eye Serum 

Let’s focus on our under-eye skin for a moment. This region of our face is much thinner and fragile than other areas - meaning that it can dry out and show signs of aging much easier. So, it needs a bit ofextra care. This is where an eye cream or serum can help. 

Eye serums work to reduce signs of aging (such as wrinkles and fine lines) to provide your complexion with a much more youthful appearance.

TheDichotomy Eye Cream by Triumph & Disaster is a worthy addition to your skincare regime - packed with a blend of natural ingredients to support your under-eye skin. 

Step 6 - Moisturise  

Rounding out your 6-stepmen's skincare routineis a quality moisturiser - an essential element of any skincare regime. 

Of course one of the most obvious benefits of a moisturiser is to hydrate the skin and treat anydryness - though this is only the beginning. 

Finishing off your routine with a moisturiser is vital. It creates a barrier over the skin, helping to replace and lock in all the nutrients from your other products, while keeping dirt and other pollutants out of your pores.
