Finding the right skincare product can be overwhelming due to the endless choice of products available for men. So I have decided to share a minimalist skincare routine for men. It is easy to follow and it contains a selection of products that I have tried and used (still using for most of them).
Wash your face every morning
Cleansing your face is a very important step. I usually do it while I am in the shower. Using a great Face Wash with a fresh fragrance will wake you up, open your pores and brighten your skin. My face wash of choice is from Zeos for Men. It is made with natural ingredients, it has a super fresh fragrance and it won’t hurt your bank account either! The Face Wash from Zeos for Men can be purchased on Amazon UK: click here.
2. Exfoliate twice a week
Twice a week, swap your face wash for a face scrub. Get ready for a deep clean, as a Face Scrub will exfoliate your skin. Result: Your skin is smooth, fresh and basically it feels like your skin in ten years younger. My Face Scrub of Choice is again from Zeos for Men, I find this face scrub being one of the best. It is available on Amazon UK: click here.
3. Shave with a shave oil
I used to have stubble but recently I decided to go back to the clean shaven look. This is an important part of my minimalist skincare routine because it is fundamental to avoid any skin irritations and little cuts. For a very close and smooth shaving experience, I recommend using a Shave Oil. Apply few drops on the palm of your hand then massage onto your wet face and start shaving! Personally I think that once you try a Shave Oil you never go back to foam or a shave gel. My favourite shave oil is from Raw Supremo and it’s called Cleano Supremo. It smells great and it brings the shaving experience to another level! It is available on Amazon UK: Click here.
4. Protect with an After Shave Balm
This is probably the most important step of my routine as my skin needs protection after shaving. It is important to apply an after shave balm to soothe and protect your skin. Over the last five years since I started this blog, I have tried a lot of after shave balms, but I can honestly say that there is one that I consider being the BEST. My After Shave Balm of choice is from B Line for Men. I am not getting paid by any of these brands included in this post so that’s my honest opinion: trust me…this is the best After Shave Balm you can buy!
5. Moisturise and you are good to go
This is the last step of my minimalist skincare routine for men, and you can’t skip it! Before going out it is very important to moisturise your skin. We are made of water and to keep your skin nice, healthy and fresh you need to moisturise it. Once you have applied your After Shave Balm, wait few minutes then you can apply your moisturising cream onto your face. Lately I have been using this one from ALTR (on Amazon UK click here) and I am a big fan too of the Facial Oil by Mount Purious for Men (available here)
