A Beginner's Guide to Skincare for Men | magazine.vaniday.com

It sometimes can be confusing for the beginners to build a skincare routine. This is the case especially when selecting the best products for an effective skincare. Maybe that is why many men don’t have a skincare routine. An effective skincare routine is one of the most powerful tools men have against the common skin problems like acne, wrinkles, and even sun damage. Skincare for men doesn’t have to be all that difficult!

Effective skincare requires more than washing your face with soap and waiting for the best results. Once you find the right products for your skin, it takes commitment and consistency to reap the results. Building a skincare routine takes just a few simple steps. It can be useful for you to consider these recommendations to have a healthier-looking skin. You will be amazed at how much difference you will see just in a few weeks.

Facial Cleanser

It is a false fact that the more squeaky-clean your face feels, the better off you are. This actually means that your skin’s protective barrier is out of balance and you remove the natural skin oils that moisturize. Instead, you can use a facial that contains moisturizing ingredients but is still able to control the oil. For the best results you must use it twice in a day, in the morning and at night.

Eye Cream

Eye cream is a must when it comes to skincare. The skin around the eyes is ten times thinner than the skin on the face. For this reason, under-eye creams are different from regular facial creams.  Eye cream can be helpful for reducing dark circles and eye bags. It can help rejuvenate the skin under your eyes by removing wrinkles and fine lines.  


Applying properly a right amount of the moisturizer helps prevent dry skin. Moisturizers provide a seal to your skin to prevent water from escaping. Apply the moisturizer several times a day. You can use it after cleansing and after bathing. If your skin is extremely dry you may want to apply a natural oil like raw coconut oil.  


You should be wearing sunscreen every day. Daily sunscreen is the most effective anti-aging product you can have. It protects the skin from UV rays from the sun which are not only cause skin cancer, but also are the biggest factor in aging of the skin. Need some recommendations for sunscreen? Look no further.

This is a four-step basic skincare routine. If you are ready to improve your skincare routine, then you can also check the following steps.


Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that make the skin look dull.  It helps unclog pores and brighten the complexion. Exfoliating peeling gels are gentler on the skin. Start with an exfoliator containing alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which will gently destroy dead cells.


Serums are stronger than your daily moisturizer and are aimed at delivering active ingredients and nutrients faster and more effectively. The good news is that no matter what your skin type is, there is a serum for it. It usually contains moisturizing and skin regenerating ingredients that all skin types can benefit. Use twice a day after your cleanser and before your moisturizer.


There are hundreds of different types of masks. They are like serums because they give more concentrated ingredients and target specific skin concerns. The best mask for men, especially for beginners, is a clay mask. These masks use materials like clay and mud to thoroughly clean your pores.


Retinol is a form of vitamin A that helps grow new skin cells and remove signs of aging. If you use retinol, you should definitely wear a sunscreen product every day. It can also exfoliate the skin. Look for a soft version of retinol with moisturizing ingredients.


If you have oily skin or are struggling with acne, toner can be an invaluable step to keep your skin clean and shiny. Apply to your face after cleansing to clean your pores deeply and get rid of excess oil.

Night Cream

Your skin tries to rebuild itself while resting. Night creams are typically moisturizers and contain specific active ingredients to help this regeneration process.
