We believe taking care of your skin is extremely important no matter who you are, but in general, we’ve found that men aren’t usually as diligent and interested when it comes to skincare. Furthermore, a man’s skin has its own unique attributes and needs. For example, men tend to have dry skin due to shaving, produce more sebum (making them more prone to acne), and often have increased skin damage caused by exposure to the elements and neglect. Here are our top tips for men’s specific needs, habits, and preferences.
1. Use a cleanser that’s also great for shaving – While there are definitely some good shaving creams out there, nearly none of them do your skin any favors and probably none do double duty like a solid cleanser. Why not deep-cleanse your skin and shave all in one winning sweep? Using a cleanser, like CLEANSING COMPLEX, that is also great for shaving, can knock off time from your skincare regime. Our CLEANSING COMPLEX is the perfect, lightweight cleansing gel because it’s powerful, but gentle enough for even hypersensitive skin. Struggling with some breakouts? CLEANSING COMPLEX has you covered. It helps control acne-prone skin while it deep-cleanses without drying. Can your shaving cream do that??
2. Upgrade from an aftershave to a specialized serum – Skip out on that harsh aftershave and instead incorporate a soothing, nourishing serum into your skincare regime. Our go-to for after shaving is our super soothing PRO-HEAL SERUM ADVANCE+ because it quickly quiets irritation, minimizes itching, and helps speed healing for any knicks or bumps. Serums are great because they penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to help heal and hydrate on a whole different level. PRO-HEAL SERUM ADVANCE+ is also fantastic for minimizing breakouts and redness, like rosacea or sensitivities. This serum features scientifically-advanced L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), combined with a superior form of olive leaf extract and pure vitamins E and A, so it significantly increases antioxidant protection while helping to address redness-prone, acne-prone, and aging skin.
3. Simplify your regimen with multi-tasking products – Step up your skincare regimen by simplifying it. It seems counterintuitive, but if you can get more done in less steps, your skin and schedule will thank you. The trick is incorporating a multi-tasking product into your regime, like EXTREME PROTECT SPF 30, which not only protects, but treats and hydrates too! It provides unprecedented broad-spectrum UVA/UVB and antioxidant protection. EXTREME PROTECT SPF 30 also hydrates the skin, leaving it feeling smooth and soft. It can even help minimize redness from an existing sunburn. Essentially, this product does it all in just one simple step!
4. See a skincare pro so you’re not just guessing which products are best for you – If you want to take some serious action but minimize the guess work, your best bet is to speak to a skincare professional. Seeking out the help of a skincare expert can really help you determine which products will work best for your skin types and concerns. They can also explain how and when to use the products being recommended, and take into consideration other important factors, like lifestyle and personal preferences.
