As you age your skin will change. In earlier years when hormones are taking over, your body will produce much more sebum (oil). As you get older your skin will produce less oil, and the need for moisturizers will be apparent.
Men’s skin care regimen
Exposure to the sun is one of the leading causes for premature aging of the skin, including a far greater chance of developing skin cancer.
The American Academy of Dermatology suggests that, regardless of skin type, a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 should be used year-round. Still not convinced? Then consider the following facts from the American Cancer Society:
- Everyone is at risk for skin cancer regardless of skin color, and everyone needs protection from the sun.
- Sunlight can reflect off of water, sand, concrete, and snow and can reach below the surface of the water.
- Cloudy skies may cool you off, but UV rays can still penetrate through clouds, so you still need protection.
- It’s never too late to protect your skin. Even if you’ve tanned or burned before, you can still begin protecting your skin today.
If you work outside in the sun, wear a high SPF sunscreen (15 or higher), a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and lip balm with sunscreen every day.
Washing Your Face
This is the first step to a solid skin care regimen. Men should use mild cleansers to avoid over-drying the skin, which can cause the skin to produce excess oil. Washing your face will help to remove dirt, oil, and debris and help to avoid clogged pores and blemishes. Always apply your face wash to wet skin, and use warm water to rinse.
Moisturizers and Skin Types
A face moisturizer should always have SPF protection of at least 15, regardless of skin type.
Oily Skin – Your skin will age better than that of a person with dry skin, however, the negative side effects are the shinny skin, and the breakouts. Your skin type may be able to get away without using a moisturizer, or one that is oil free.
Dry Skin – Your skin is vulnerable to chapping, scaling, and flaking. You will certainly benefit from a daytime moisturizer as well as a nighttime moisturizer.
Combination skin – Your skin needs special attention. You may have excess oil in the T-zone (forehead nose and chin area) and dryness on your cheeks and other parts of you face. You should treat these two areas separately. Use a moisturizer on those dry areas and leave the oily parts alone, or use a light oil free version on the that t-zone.
Normal skin – Perhaps you don’t have any dryness or excess oil on your face. In this case, your skin requires minimal treatments, and you should use a moisturizer as needed.
What Is Exfoliation and Why Do I Need To Do It?
Scrubs containing granules, like our Skin Toner Facial Scrub with walnut shell powder, gently buffs away impurities and dead surface cells as it stimulates skin renewal. The result when used once or twice a week as needed; a refined complexion minus any redness or flaking. As if that weren’t enough, our Scrub is the perfect pre-shave tool for lifting hairs away from the skin prior to shaving.
Masks that contain natural clays are best for men since they suffer from oily skin. Clay masks are designed to purge dirt and debris from skin pores. Leaving skin smooth and clean. Apply a think layer of clay on the face, let dry to a flaky crust (approx. 10 min) and rinse off with warm water.

Under Eye Cream for Men?
Look at a photo of yourself that’s at least five years old and you should see far more significant changes than in any other area of your face. Truth is, the skin under the eye is extremely delicate. As you age, it tends to get thinner, making it very susceptible to wrinkles. And since this area of the face lacks oil glands, it needs special attention with a nutrient-packed, super-hydrating serum. Start today, even if you’re only in your twenties, and you’ll see results soon.
