The Effortless Skincare Routine for Men

Pretty much everything written about skincare routines assumes they are for women. From cleansers and toners to moisturizers and serums, no one ever really talks about the best skincare for men. Should men even have a skincare routine? Yes!

So guys, this one’s for you. Just in case you’re wondering: men’s skincare takes only a few minutes a day, you’ll definitely notice a difference, and your face (and anyone who kisses you) will love you for it.

What is a Men’s Skincare Routine?

Is men’s skincare different than women’s? Is skincare for men actually a thing? Yes and yes. Male hormones make men’s skin thicker, oilier and rougher than women’s – not to mention all that coarse facial hair. 

The best skincare for men is a regular routine that keeps your skin clean, smooth, balanced and protected. So, your skincare regimen must include products specially formulated for a man’s skin. But if you’ve never even heard of face wash for men, moisturizer for men or face toner for men (they all exist!), let’s start by seeing what they can do.

Men's Skincare Routine Step-by-Step

Every skincare routine follows an order that’s logical for the way skin works. The number of steps you use should suit your skin needs and bathroom routine, but the first three are the bare minimum for daily skincare.

Men's Skincare on Shaving Days

A daily men’s skincare routine also does wonders for those who shave regularly. But no matter how often you shave, try to add the exfoliating step above to create a surface free of dead skin cells. After removing stubble, use a soothing moisturizer and let it penetrate your pores. Or go for a 3-in-1 combo product that moisturizes, exfoliates and treats the eye area.
