From Scruffy to Smooth: Skincare Essentials for Every Gent

Skincare isn't just for women; it's for everyone. As a man, taking care of your skin may not be at the top of your priority list. But let us tell you – it should be.

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and even the toughest bodies deserve some TLC. Not only does proper upkeep help you look good, but it also promotes your overall well-being. So, gentlemen, it's time to step up your skincare game and embrace a routine that will leave you feeling confident and looking your best.

Common skincare concerns for men

Acne, razor burn and dryness - three of the most common skincare issues men face. A variety of things, including genetics, hormones, and environmental factors, can cause these concerns. But fear not! We have the remedy. With the help of clean products + a good regimen, you'll quickly be on your way to better skin.

Identifying your skin type

One of the first steps in developing a skincare routine is identifying your skin type. 

There are four main skin types: normal, oily, dry, and combination. Normal skin is well-balanced, with no excessive oiliness or dryness. Oily skin produces excess oil, leading to shine and potential breakouts. Dry skin lacks moisture and can feel tight or flaky. Lastly, combination skin is a mix of oily and dry areas. By determining your skin type, you can select the appropriate products that will address your specific concerns.

Essential skincare products for men

Now that you have a better understanding of the importance of skincare and have identified your skin type, it's time to explore the essential products that every man should have in his skincare arsenal. These products will help cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and protect your skin, leaving it in tip-top shape.

Cleansing and exfoliating

The first step in any skincare routine is cleansing. A good cleanser will remove dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin without stripping it of its natural moisture. Look for a gentle cleanser that is suited for your skin type. If you have dry or sensitive skin, opt for a hydrating cleanser that won't further dry out your skin.

We recommend our Foaming Facial Wash. This gentle cleanser was created with every skin type in mind to deeply, but gently remove grime and toxins while hydrating and priming for the remainder of your routine.

Next up: exfoliation. Follow your cleanser with a gentle exfoliator 2-3 times a week. Not only will this buff away dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve texture, but it also preps the skin for a close, clean shave.

Snag our Facial Scrub, which was formulated with granulated cane sugar & diatomaceous earth to exfoliate, along with coconut oil, aloe butter & raw Hawaiian honey to moisturize and soothe even the most rugged skin.

Moisturizing and hydrating

The golden rule of all skincare routines: never skimp on moisturizer!

Moisturizers offer nourishment to prevent dryness and lock in the skin's natural moisture barrier. But it's not just your face that needs this. Don't forget to apply a rich cream to your neck, chest, and entire body as well.

Our best-selling ManKine Lotion can be used from head to toe. With a masculine and mild scent, this ultra-hydrating face and body lotion can be used all over and also serves as the perfect aftershave, too!

Taking care of the important things

Lip care is often put on the back burner, but you shouldn't sleep on a good balm. Your lips can easily become chapped, especially during harsh weather conditions.

Our Lip Balm Stick has everything needed – beeswax, extra virgin olive oil, orange & vanilla essential oils, along with a touch of stevia – to repair your parched smackers and provide long-lasting hydration and protection. Apply it throughout the day, especially before bed, to keep your lips soft and ready for anything that comes their way.

And on that note... Let's get personal.

Taking care of your intimate skin is just as important as taking care of the rest of your body. Whether you're using it for *fun* activities or to prevent chafing during physical exercise, a good personal lubricant can be a real game changer.

The key is to choose a lubricant that is free from harmful chemicals and irritants, and opt for a water-based formula for easy cleanup. Our Personal Lubricant fits that bill.

Made with pure and organic ingredients, this fan-favorite soothes skin and relieves dryness while enhancing sensual intimacy. Did we mention that it tastes good AND it's safe to ingest and use internally?

Conclusion: Embracing a Skincare Routine for Men

Gentlemen, it's time to put an end to the notion that skincare is strictly a gals game and start taking pride in your skin. By understanding your skin type, addressing common skincare concerns, and incorporating these must-have skincare essentials into your daily routine, you'll be well on your way to healthier skin and a boost in confidence. So, don't wait any longer. Start embracing a routine today and experience the transformative power of proper skincare.
