Although women make up a large portion of the market for high-quality skincare products, it’s no secret that men need quality skincare as well. The benefits of learning the best way to nourish and protect skin include having a youthful, healthy glow, as well as preventing the common signs of aging from developing prematurely.
However, the sheer number of great skincare products out there can be intimidating, especially for those who aren’t as familiar with skin care. That’s why we’ve rounded up the essential products to help you make the best skincare routine for men.
The first step in any good skincare routine is cleansing the face from daily (or nightly) oil buildup, debris, and dead skin cells. For most skin types, a gentle, mild cleanser works best, as you don’t want to overly dry out the skin, which can cause irritation or increased oil production.
For men’s skincare products, we recommend our top-rated Citrus Herbal Cleanser for a luxurious daily cleanse.
A step that many people neglect in their normal skincare routine is using a professional-grade toner to help clean pores and prepare the skin for deep moisturization. Our Metadermabolic Enzyme-powered Protein Mist Toner is a great way for men to step up their game both during their morning and nightly routine as well as throughout the day.
For men who are concerned with the aging process, it’s this stage of the daily skincare routine that specialty products, should be applied. Our potent Pro Collagen and Serum Amplifier is a great product to help soften the appearance of your skin while boosting the effects of your other skincare products.
Many moisturizers out there can lay thick on the skin, feeling greasy and promoting the development of blemishes by clogging pores. On the other hand, others use synthetic chemicals and fragrances that can cause irritation to sensitive, dry skin, so a balanced, natural alternative is often the best choice for men of all skin types.
Epicuren offers many hydrating moisturizers for people with dry, combination, or oily skin, but a no-fail product that offers both hydration with a powerful antioxidant blend is our Nourish Antioxidant Moisturizer.
Perhaps the most important step in the best skincare routine for men is sun protection. No matter how high quality your products are, the sun can still harm skin and gradually lead to signs of aging such as hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. Epicuren Discovery’s Zinc Oxide SPF 27 is a great daily sunscreen that goes on transparently and helps skin appear bright, well-hydrated, and radiant.
Now, for a normal daily routine for most men, simply cleansing, toning, and moisturizing is a great foundational skincare regimen. Taking it to the next level involves adding an exfoliant, like our Micro-Derm Ultra Refining Scrub, which can be used on a weekly basis to help the skin look clean and smooth, and free from unwanted debris.
