It's time to get real about skin care for men! There is a ton of information about skincare products and routines for women, but not so much for men – why is that? Is it that men simply don't think as much about skin health and aging, or maybe they just don't know where to start with a good skincare routine? Today, we are here to support every man in finding the right products for their skincare regime.
All people, no matter their age or gender, are battling skin conditions such as acne, uneven skin tone, dryness, skin cancer, and a myriad of other issues that can work against skin health and prevent the healthy glow that skin well cared for shows.
Guys – skincare products and a good routine will make a difference for you, and it will be noticeable. Do you want someone to look at you and comment on how fresh you look? Or how tired? Let's get fresh and into some of the ways you can take care of your skin.
Idaho Skincare Products For Men
At our Skin Clinic & Aesthetics locations in Idaho Falls, Pocatello, and Preston, Idaho, we see men regularly for annual skin cancer checks, acne, and even botox treatments. When coming in for skin treatments and assessments, our clients tend to recognize the need to care for their skin, but what about the men still washing their faces with regular soap?! Although any good skincare routine takes a little more daily effort, we promise you it's worth it! After a few weeks of a new skincare routine, you will be amazed at the difference in how your skin looks and feels.
Best Cleansers for Men
Let's talk about the basics and must-haves. Everyone needs a solid cleanser, toner, and moisturizer – plus a sunscreen that won't make your skin break out or dry up. Our AHA Exfoliating Cleanser is excellent for all skin types – it is a perfect everyday go-to that will exfoliate while adding healthy oils back into the skin. Glycolic acid, rosehip seed oil, and Moroccan chamomile oil combined pack a one-two punch in this cleanser that will give your skin a good scrub and a soft feeling afterward. This cleanser can also help tackle acne-prone/oily skin conditions and has anti-aging properties, making it a great everyday product.
Anti-Aging Skincare Products for Men
Want to take it next level? After washing your face, apply our Hydrating Skin Toner with CoQ10 – this is good for all skin types and includes lavender extracts and an effective dose of CoQ10 to leave your skin primed for moisturizing.
Top Moisturizers for Men
Follow that up with The Only Cream You'll Ever Need – this moisturizer (for all skin types) has organic safflower seed oil, niacinamide, antioxidants, essential fatty acid, and amino acids – it is the perfect primer for underneath your sunscreen, which can go over the top as the final step in your skincare routine.
Colorscience SPF 50 for Male Skincare
Finally, we recommend Colorescience 50 SPF sunscreen in medium for use by men – it protects you from sun damage and won't clog up your pores. Our holistic approach to skincare and our personalized product line have guaranteed results. If you have particular skin concerns, book a consultation with us so we can review and suggest the best course of action.
Men Can Pamper Their Skin Too!
If you are already practicing a complete skincare regime and are ready to expand your horizons on the skincare spectrum, try out our G-S 5/2 Exfoliating Pads and Overnight Peptide Power Mask. The exfoliating pads have 5% glycolic acid, 2% salicylic acid, and 2% witch hazel in the ingredients – these are key when recovering from acne outbreaks and treating blemishes. All skin types can use these, and they are great for an extra step in your skincare routine – use these two or three times per week after your cleanser. Pair this with the Overnight Peptide Power Mask to treat your skin while sleeping. When you wake up and cleanse these products off the skin, you'll be amazed at how good it feels. The overnight mask is especially effective for treating dryness, fine lines, and renewing the skin's elasticity. Ingredients include 1% hydrolyzed collagen, 3% matrixyl 3000, 1% argireline 1%, and soothing oak kernel extract.
Exfoliation Products for Dad
If you want to get a good scrub on your face and body, start the day with our Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Scrub – you can use this on your body and even the face or scalp. This is a heavier exfoliator that lifts dead skin cell buildup and excess oils using aluminum oxide crystals, red tea, and seaweed extract, as well as hyaluronic acid to reveal new skin that is perfectly primed for your other skincare products to follow.
Whether you are a skin care rookie or advanced user, these products will help men with all skin types achieve a healthy complexion and smoother skin – this means fewer fine lines and softer skin that feels healthy and hydrated. Consistency and commitment are key – and if you think, "well, my bar soap routine works just fine and is less hassle," we are sorry to break it to you, but you are disrupting the skin's sensitive barrier and stripping out the natural oils when you get that squeaky clean feeling you think is good for you – it's not!
Idaho Dermatology for Men
As experts in dermatology, we see the effects of this type of routine in men often and love seeing the turnaround in their skin health once these habits are changed. If you want to discuss your skincare needs, we can help you select the products that will work best for you. An annual skin assessment is also a good idea, especially as you age, to ensure you are taking preventative measures against sun damage and catching any red flags that could be of concern.
Pocatello Skincare Products
If you're unsure where to start, the products mentioned in this article are good for all skin types and will help you see a difference after a few weeks of consistent care and use. You are worth it! Next time someone says you're looking tired – it'll be because you are tired and not because your skin is looking sad. Looking good means feeling good, and those around you will notice the difference.
