The Essential Guide to Men's Skincare

Male skin tends to be oilier, thicker and ages differently to female skin, and for those new to the world of skincare, you need to start by understanding your skin type so you can make the right product choices. Generally, you will fall into one of the following categories: Dry/Dehydrated, Sensitive, Oily, Combination or Mature.

Once you’ve figured out your skin type, there are the basics to help achieve your best skin. These are our top picks for men:

  1. Cleanse - Choose a gentle facial cleanser and make it a habit to cleanse your face twice a day—once in the morning and once before bed. Not cleansing properly can lead to excess oil and impurities and can contribute to breakouts and irritation. One of our favourites is Janssen Cosmetics Purifying Wash & Shave. This product not only gently and effectively cleanses the skin, but also softens and prepares it to prevent irritation caused by shaving.

  2. Exfoliate Weekly - Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, and helps to reveal the fresh, radiant skin underneath. As Men's skin is often thicker than women's, exfoliation becomes even more important. Using a facial scrub like Janssen Cosmetics Intensive Face Scrub up to twice a week, will help keep areas prone to blackheads, like the nose and forehead clear and fresh.

  3. After Shave Calm – It’s confusing to find the right products to help calm irritation after shaving, so we’ve got you covered with Janssen Cosmetics Calming Hydrogel. It instantly calms, soothes, and helps skin heal after those annoying nicks and cuts caused by shaving.

  4. Moisturise - Regardless of skin type, moisturising helps to hydrate and maintain the skins moisture barrier, preventing dryness and premature ageing. If you’re looking for something that targets anti-ageing, you can check out Janssen Cosmetics 24/7 Skin Energizer. For oilier or combination skin types, try Inspira Cosmetics 24hr Skin Supercharger.

  5. Sun Protection - Daily sun protection, even on those cloudy days, is crucial to help safeguard skin from harmful UV rays that can lead to sunburn, premature ageing, and even skin cancer. Ideally choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. We love Janssen Cosmetics Faceguard Advanced because it’s non greasy, and easy to use. Simply apply after cleansing and before your moisturiser.

  6. Eye Care - Invest in an eye cream or gel specifically formulated to combat puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines. Regular use will help you appear well-rested and refreshed. You’ll love Janssen Cosmetics Energizing Eye Roll On. This light gel is cooling, moisturising, and helps to keep looking fresh and awake.

Finding the right products for you is important, but the commitment to using them every day is equally as important to help achieve radiant, smooth skin.

As with any skincare, individual experiences may vary, and it's important to consider potential sensitivities or allergies. If you have specific skin concerns or conditions, consulting with a dermatologist or skincare professional is recommended to determine the best approach for your skincare routine.
