Men's Guide to Skincare: Essential Things to Know

Men can and should take care of their skin! Beauty routines are no longer gendered, as self-care is an important part of our well-being. So if you are curious about steps, products, and whatever a “serum” is, you came to the right place. 

Let’s start saying that even though everyone’s skin type is unique, men’s skin has a few structural differences compared to women. For example, they tend to have thicker skin because of testosterone hormones, also a lot of men shave. 

Where to start when building a skincare routine for men? We explain a basic but powerful guide with the essentials. 

Choose the right products


First and foremost, you’ll need a cleanser to eliminate oil, dirt, and impurities in your skin. This will help you prevent breakouts and irritations. 

Choose one suited for your skin type (oily, dry or mixed) and be gentle when applying. Use it at least twice a day. 


this step is optional, but your skin will really appreciate it. Serums are gel or light lotion consistency products that contain a high concentration of performance ingredients. Rich in hydration, Omega Face Serum will help keep your skin well moisturized all day.

They can help you with specific skin concerns like acne, ingrown hairs, dryness, or wrinkles. For example, those with peptides are perfect for fine lines and crow’s feet. 

Put two or three drops of serum onto your fingertips, then rub your hands together and apply gently on your forehead, the bridge of the nose, the cheeks, and don’t forget the neck and jawline.


Once you have a clean face and applied serum, it’s time to hydrate! Pick a moisturizing product with an active ingredient that helps your skin renew, such as peptides, hyaluronic acid, or aloe vera. 

You can use the Visage Facial Mist after cleansing and especially after shaving. This step will prevent early aging signs. 


Of course, nothing is done if you don’t take sun damage seriously. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause red spots, wrinkles and even skin cancer. That’s why using sunscreen daily is key. 

Choose a sunscreen with a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and apply as a final step in your routine. This product comes in different consistencies and formulas. Try the one that suits you best. 

If you shave, keep this in mind 

Maybe you are used to shaving every once in a while or even twice a week, but this practice is tough on your skin, and you should be careful. To prevent hair ingrowth, exfoliate the skin before shaving. 

Use only new and clean razors to prevent infections, and remember to always moisturize after you are done!
