Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be a complicated thing: it’s about finding the right products and consistency. Developing easy few skin care steps to follow and incorporating that routine into your everyday life is enough to see and feel the results promptly.

Invest in a few quality skin care products, and your face will start glowing in just a couple of days, and with consistency, you’ll start witnessing it getting stronger, allowing it to age more gracefully.

Thankfully, you don’t need much more than a cleanser, serum and a high-quality men’s moisturizer to start nourishing your skin. Choosing the perfect product for your skin, will take some trial and error, and moreover, product will change as your skin changes.

However, quality, and learning what favours your skin type is important, because our skin absorbs everything that we apply on it, so you definitely shouldn’t feed it with toxic chemicals that can have negative effects on your skin in the long run.

There are of course many products for a man’s face, but to develop a habit, to make it easier on yourself to stick with it and not get discouraged after a few days – simplicity is key.


Start with water. Wash your face, or take a shower to open the pores on your skin, to clean all the dirt and let your skin absorb the healthy favourable nutrients you’ll apply on it, for maximum efficiency.

To cleanse, squeeze a dush of men’s face wash on your fingers, rub your hands together and gently rub with circular motion. Wash off the product with warm water and dry your face, making sure you don’t rub it with the towel, but rather pat it.

If you are going to shave, cleanse just before shaving, and of course, then apply after shave moisturizing cream.

For bearded men: Make sure the product really reaches your skin, by rubbing a little bit longer and more forcefully. Furthermore, if you want to be completely sure your skin is really clean underneath the beard, you could exfoliate once a weak for a deep cleanse.

Apply Serum

You might not have heard of serums for face if you aren’t used to face care, but rest assured, they are very important for your skin.

Serums like, like vitamin-C, retinol, hyaluronic acid etc. are antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging products. They basically help your skin retain the moisture and repair the damages caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays, air pollution, industrial chemicals etc.

Put two or three drops on your fingertips and rub your hands together to apply the serum on your face. Apply it across your forehead, on your nose and cheeks, and then use the excess to apply over your jawline and neck.

For bearded men: Make sure you apply the serum on the beneath your beard to nourish your entire face.

Apply Moisturizer

Keeping the skin on your face hydrated is the main goal behind all of this. Moisturizing makes skin healthier, and it makes it look fuller and younger.

Even when it’s cloudy and you can’t see the sun, it’s sunlight still reaches our skin, so in the morning use a men’s moisturizer with SPF, to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the UV rays. With the high UV radiation in Australia, keep in mind that guarding your skin from the harmful sun rays isn’t just about protection against wrinkles or skin tone, but, more importantly, protection against skin cancer.

Put a small amount of the product on your fingertips and rub your hands together. Spread the cream across the forehead, the cheeks and the neck, and gently massage with circular motions until it’s absorbed.

For best results, you should repeat the previous two steps before sleeping as well, and end it with moisturizing again – only this time using a nourishing night moisturizer cream for men.

For bearded men: Make sure you cover your whole face when applying moisturizer. Furthermore, you should also apply a skin-health-promoting beard oil on your beard a few times a weak.

Additional Steps for More Serious Facial Care

If you don’t think challenging yourself with a slightly longer routine will prevent you from developing a facial care habit, or if you are already used to a routine, you could incorporate other nourishing products such as toner and eye cream into your routine, especially if you are over 30.

  1. After you’ve cleansed your face, and before you apply the serum, you can tone your face. This is especially good if you have acne, or if you are noticing your skin has started aging.

Tone your face by gently rubbing a cotton pad doused with a dash of toner all over your face and neck.

  1. The skin around your eyes is the most sensitive part of your face. It puffs, it darkens, and being so thin, it’s often the first place where wrinkles start appearing.

If you decide to incorporate eye cream into your daily skin care routine, make it the fourth step, ideally at night, applying it before your night skin moisturizer for men.

Apply it by gently tapping a small amount with your fingertips, underneath your eyes. Tap until the product is absorbed entirely. To make sure you are really gentle, you can use your ring fingers, since they are most likely the least strong ones on your hands.
