Great skin knows no gender. That being said, because of varying hormonal levels and specific skin concerns, it’s important for men to also have a streamlined routine explicitly designed for their needs.
Read on below for a fuss-free skincare regimen that ensures your skin remains cool, confident, and ready to tackle the day. Because yes, you can hit every base, all while keeping it down to 4 easy-peasy steps!
Cleansing the skin daily is the foundation for healthy skin, as it ensures pores stay unclogged and reduces the risk of breakouts. Start your morning with a gentle cleanser to cleanse away sweat, excess oil, and impurities. It’s essential to choose a cleanser that best suits your skin type (normal, oily, dry, or combination) and doesn’t strip it of its natural oils (especially during chillier months) in order to maintain a balanced complexion.

It’s also just as important to cleanse at night to make sure to remove any impurities that accumulate throughout the day.
Follow up day and night with a lightweight serum that addresses specific concerns. This can be dehydrated skin, fine lines, uneven skin tone, breakouts, or redness.
For example, a vitamin C serum––such as our beloved Vivier CE Peptide––can provide antioxidant protection and brighten the skin, which is especially beneficial post-summer months. Meanwhile, a hyaluronic acid serum can help to prevent dryness and an anti-aging serum––like the GM Collin Paris Bota-Peptides Serum––can help protect against the summer’s free radical damage (like sun rays) that cause premature aging and wrinkling.
It’s best to opt for a non-greasy, oil-free, or light moisturizer that keeps the skin hydrated without feeling heavy. You can look for one with built-in mattifying properties if you have oily skin or a gel-based formula––like the Eminence Mangosteen Gel Moisturizer––for extra lightweight hydration.

The most crucial step in any season is applying a broad-spectrum SPF of at least (!) 30. This protects your skin from harmful UV rays that can lead to sunburn, premature aging, and skin damage.

Last but not least, remember to adjust the products based on your skin's needs and preferences. Consistency is key, so following a routine morning and night will inevitably lead to healthier, better-protected skin—no matter the season.
