An Easy Summer Skincare Routine for MenJune 28, 2021
A good skincare routine is an important self-care habit for everyone to adopt, no matter your gender. The minimalist regimen below that we’ve created with men’s skin in mind is perfect for anyone looking to treat their skin with a little extra care this summer without a ton of effort. Keep reading for the products we recommend, from a gentle daily face wash to a moisturizing sunscreen.
Cleanser: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser
This gentle yet effective cleanser is dermatologist-tested and free of potentially irritating synthetic fragrances, dyes and mineral oils, making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin. Nourishing ingredients like squalane, glycerin and avocado oil help retain moisture and protect the skin’s natural barrier.
Shaving Cream: Baxter of California Super Close Shave Formula
If you shave, this richly lathering cream provides a comfortable barrier between the razor and your skin. It contains invigorating peppermint oil to help fight razor burn and moisturizing coconut extract for a smooth, neat shave.
After cleansing and shaving, we recommend applying a serum, such as this lightweight hyaluronic acid-infused formula. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means it pulls moisture from the air into your skin. This serum also contains vitamin C, which helps even out the skin and brighten dark spots.
Moisturizer: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream with Squalane
To lock in moisture, reach for this lightweight cream. It’s non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores, and contains squalane and glycerin to soften your skin.
Sunscreen is a non-negotiable step in any routine. This broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen melts into skin without leaving a pale cast or greasy residue. Hyaluronic acid and glycerin add an extra dose of hydration.
