The Best Skin Care Routine For Men
When asked what’s the difference between a skin care routine for men and women, we’ll tell you there’s not a great difference and that it’s about finding the skin care steps which are right for your news and skin type. But if you need some guidance then bookmark this blog post to come back to and find the best skin care routine for men.
Cleanse & Scrub
Your skin needs daily cleansing morning and night, and we’d always recommend a double cleanse in the evening even if you’re not wearing makeup! For a morning cleanse our GOOD TO GO Creamy Foaming Cleanser is the ideal option because it’s lightweight and refreshing, helps maintain the balance of the skin and doesn’t strip the skin of its oil like some foam cleansers can do. Try our WAY TO GO Purifying Cleansing Wash or DUAL ACT Wet & Dry Cleansing Lotion for your evening double cleanse depending on if your skin is more oily or combination, each effortlessly cleans the skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth.
An exfoliating scrub is a great addition to have in a skin care routine for men, you don’t need to exfoliate every day but a few times a week to keep on top of dead skin cells and uneven skin tone will do the job. BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE Gentle Exfoliator is a creamy exfoliating scrub with added oats and fruit AHAs to slough away at dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin. Or for something more intense, trade it for THE POWER BREAKFAST Nutritious Scrub & Mask which is thicker in consistency to polish and decongest skin in one.
If applying a mask might seem like an indulgent pamper, using one once a week or as often as needed can help tackle skin concerns you have! For instance with congestion and blemishes and we’d recommend our creamy mud mask PURIFICATION Deep Cleansing Mask to aid in absorbing impurities and refreshing the skin. Why not try our clever exfoliating mask MOST REVEALING Skin Glowing Oxygen Peel which bubbles up when massaged into damp skin to make for smoother, brighter skin and a fun experience too! For a mask which is more hydrating, QUENCH Rejuvenating Mask restores moisture levels and softness, which makes it a perfect mask choice for the winter months.
Fun Fact: the skin around your eyes is 20 times thinner than the rest of your face. So it needs extra care from our WINDOWS OF THE SOUL Hydrating Eye-Treatment Gel-Cream that’s full of lightweight hydration and soothing ingredients to de-puff and reduce the appearance of dark circles and tired eyes. Take a little onto your ring finger and gently pat in until fully absorbed.
We bet you’ve never thought about having a serum in your skin care steps before! But these small but mighty heroes are serious game changers in skin care routines for men because they help target skin concerns and support your skin of the future. They work with your 28 day skin cell cycle, so keep up with daily application morning and evening and within 4 weeks time you’ll see the amazing results. Apply a few pumps or drops into your palms then press and massage into the skin, then leave a few minutes before following with your moisturizer. Our serums of choice range from brightening with LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum, something supportive for fragile skin and hydrating is our BE STRONG Skin Strengthening Serum and finally to helping to plump and visibly reduce the signs of ageing with BE FIRM Skin Lifting Serum.
No skin care routine for men is finished without a great moisturizer! A good moisturizer for those with oilier skin is our MOISTURE MATTE Mattifying Moisturiser, it has smart microsponges that absorb excess oil throughout the day so you’re never left with shininess by lunchtime. MOISTURE TO GO Balancing Moisturiser is a favourite at TEMPLESPA for controlling oiliness and rehydrating dryness in one, plus it’s a great all-rounder for daily skin care routines! Our top tip for moisturizers, is to always finish with an SPF, so don’t forget to add yours on before you start the day!
