Skincare recommendations suitable for caring for men's skin
Men’s grooming has come a long way from the days of using whichever soap happened to be lying around. By 2024, the global male grooming market is estimated to be worth about £70 billion .
It’s likely you’re looking for something to use on your skin - whether it’s a moisturiser, SPF or a shave balm. But with so many skincare brands out there, where do you begin?
Whether you're a grooming enthusiast or just starting your skincare journey, our aestheticians can help you maintain a skincare routine, adopt best practices for caring for your skin, and address some of the most common skin concerns men face.
For those who are new to skincare, whatever your gender, finding the time to actually commit to a routine can feel overwhelming. Busy schedules, waking up early to sort out the kids or get out in time for the work commute…we get it. Here are our top tips on introducing a skincare routine and sticking to it:
Knowing your skin type is crucial for selecting the right products and treatments.
Men's skin is different from women's skin in several ways. While the basic structure and function of the skin are similar, there are some noticeable differences which mean you may care for it slightly differently:
While these differences exist, it's important to note that skincare principles, such as cleansing, moisturising, and sun protection, apply to all genders.
Keep your skin clean and use products containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to combat breakouts. Avoid picking or popping pimples to prevent scarring.
Exfoliate a day or two after shaving to remove dead skin cells and prevent clogged hair follicles. Use a warm compress before shaving and consider using a single-blade razor or electric shaver.
Incorporate anti-ageing products with ingredients like retinol, peptides, and antioxidants to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Don't forget to use sunscreen daily to protect against UV damage.
Get enough sleep, stay hydrated, and use eye creams or serums with ingredients like caffeine or hyaluronic acid to reduce puffiness and plump the under-eye area.
Sun protection is crucial for maintaining healthy skin and preventing premature ageing and skin damage. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and apply it generously before going outside.
Reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially if you're sweating or spending prolonged periods in the sun. Wear a hat and sunglasses to provide additional protection for your face and eyes.
