There are some concessions made because men tend to have rougher skin, but it’s actually quite similar to what the ladies do.
Here are a few of the products that can help even out your skin. You can opt to just do this for special occasions like going outside, but for the most part, using these every day can reap some long-term benefits for your skin health. Do this simple routine AM and PM.
Cleanse – Facial cleansers are exactly what you think they are. These cleansers go deep through your skin to remove impurities and whatever else may sneak into your pores throughout the day (like dirt, for example.) The ZO Exfoliating Cleanser is our top pick, as it clears away surface oil and impurities without leaving skin feeling stripped or dry
Exfoliate – Exfoliating polish goes one step further and Gently removes dead skin cells to instantly reveal smoother, softer skin. Since men tend to have more skin texture, this step is essential to overall skin health. It also feels really good.
Tone – Toning your skin might seem like overkill, right? You already cleansed and exfoliated, so why do you need it to tone? This step actually removes any excess oil to properly prep the skin to receive and absorb the active ingredients that you will put on in the next step. Complexion Renewal pads are SUPER easy to use. Swipe your face with the rough side of the pad, then turn it over and swipe it with the other side and throw the pad away. Boom. Toned.
Moisturize – Using a daily moisturizer is important to keep the skin hydrated as well as strengthen your skin barrier. BUT, not every moisturizer is good for your skin! Some clog your pores and very few actually strengthen your skin. We recommend the Daily Power Defense for daily use. Defends skin against oxidative damage from free radicals, visibly reduces signs of premature aging, and accelerates barrier restoration and extended skin hydration. It’s basically the multi-tool of moisturizers. And it’s backed by science. 1-2 pumps after cleansing, exfoliating, and toning is all you need.
The above-mentioned products just happen to come in a kit. Couldn’t be more simple than that! Plus, the sizes are TSA-friendly, so you can keep your routine going whether you are at home or on the road.
Daily Skincare Program
Protect – Sunscreen is crucial for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It’s non-negotiable. The ZO Daily Sheer Broad Spectrum formula has SPF 50, is sweat and water-resistant and is non-greasy. Apply this in the morning and at lunchtime if you can remember.
Treat – This step is optional, but if you have some signs of sun damage already, add a brightening serum to your routine to treat and prevent further sun damage and hyper pigmentation.
Facial Mist – Also optional, facial mists are the best option for re-hydrating your skin throughout the day as needed! f you are in a car or office with air conditioning or heat blasting, a quick spray to the face is all you need to feel refreshed.
A good night’s sleep gives your skin a head start in staying healthy. Sleep lets your body rest and “rebuild” itself for the next day. Lack of sleep makes skin paler and more fragile, something even your skincare products can’t fix if it’s a common problem for you. To keep your skin in peak condition, take a long doze and remain consistent with your sleep schedule.
Touching the skin, especially the face area, causes pimples and blackheads to appear more often. Hands are often the silent but dirtiest parts of the body, so using them to scratch yourself or other general touchy stuff leads to problems.
An antibacterial handwash is your best bet for fighting off skin problems. Use them after touching any surface that hosts germs like walls, metal holding bars, countertops, and other public surfaces that have felt the touch of any human being.
That’s it! Those are our top tips and simple skincare for men. Taking care of your skin isn’t as intensive a task as you’d expect. Sure, it might seem like overkill on some days, but you will notice improvement in your skin, which will increase your confidence. Not to mention, healthy skin just feels good.
