Best Skincare For Men

It’s often overlooked, but skincare for men is just as important as women’s. Men are prone to blemishes, ageing and a myriad of skin conditions, just the same as women. 

Looking after skin’s health should never feel like a chore, which is why we have formulated Sukin for men, including an effective, natural skin care routine. It’s a quick routine with only a few simple steps, using the best skin care products for men to effectively care for the skin without fuss or complication.

Skincare for men vs skincare for women 

The principles and foundations of healthy skin remain the same for everyone.  No matter the age, gender, skin tone or type, a skincare routine should ensure the skin looks at its best. With that in mind, a skincare routine for men is just as important as one for women. 

However, everyone has different skincare needs! No two women will have the exact same skin, and the same goes for men.

How is male skincare different? 

Men’s skin can differ due to hormones. Testosterone causes an increase in both the thickness and the toughness of skin. Facial hair can lead to blocked pores and blemishes while regular shaving can lead to increased skin sensitivity, so a specific male skincare routine is important. 

Plus, the reality is, many men don’t show the same interest in caring for their body’s biggest organ, so complicated skincare regimes are much less likely to be followed!

What are the best ingredients for men’s skin? 

  • To soften: 

For thick, rough skin, look for naturally softening ingredients like Sesame Oil and Vitamin E to include in your male skincare. 

  • To control oil: 

Men’s skin is usually naturally oilier than women’s, so ingredients such as Baobab Extract and Tasmanian Pepper are perfect for removing excess oil, dirt and grime build-up.  

  • To soothe: 

Skincare for men should include some form of Aloe Vera. It’s another natural wonder for men’s skin thanks to its soothing properties, making it perfect for skin irritated by shaving.

What are the best skincare products for men?

Best face wash for men

A great cleanser used daily is non-negotiable. Sukin’s Men’s Facial Cleanser is gentle enough to use both morning and night. This face wash for men workto clear the pores and remove excess oil, dirt and grime that’s built up during the day or overnight.

Best exfoliator for men

A gentle, natural exfoliant is a great addition to any male skincare routine as it will work to slough away any dead and dry skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin.  

Sukin’s Men’s Facial Scrub is rich in Bamboo Powder and Walnut Shells to gently, but effectively, buff away dry skin, while Sesame and Jojoba Oils restore moisture and suppleness. Use this exfoliator for men two to three times per week for best results. 

Best moisturiser for men

To rebuild the skin’s natural moisture barrier and protect from further environmental damage, opt for Sukin’s Men’s Facial Moisturiser. This moisturiser for men works to rehydrate the skin and balance its oil production levels, while the inclusion of Aloe Vera allows it to soothe any irritations.

Best shaving gel

And for a comfortable, non-irritating shave, a great shaving gel for men is essential. Sukin’s Men’s Shaving Gel contains Tasmanian Pepper and Baobab Extract to lubricate the skin for a close shave. The Sesame Oil and Chamomile blend work to soothe the skin and restore lost moisture through regular shaving, without the need to use any nasty chemicals. 

If you are trying a product or ingredient for the first time, we always recommend a patch test first.
