Far too many men have a minimal to no skincare routine, which is understandable. The world of skincare can be confusing and expensive. There’s a lot of options on the market, between cleansers, toners, mists, serums and moisturisers, how do you know what’s best for you?
Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Physician Dr Scott McGregor gives us his top ‘skincare made simple’ tips:
- Start early to save your skin for later (if you missed the boat, then it’s never too late to start your skincare journey).
- SPF every day.
- Keep it simple: only a couple of products are really needed.
Below we take a look at a simple skincare routine for the AM and PM.
Wash your face with a non-soap cleanser if you can, nothing fancy is needed here. Don’t over do it or spend too much money on this, it’s really not necessary.
Shave! This actually helps to remove dead skin from the face and neck so therefore acts as an exfoliant. This helps to moisturise and protect your skin. Our fave shaving foam and gear are from our friends at Milkman Grooming Co (who, like us, support the Precious Plastic program).
Finish with an SPF that includes antioxidants and a good moisturiser base. Try our new Good Morning SPF 50 Daily Face Sunscreen Lotion. It provides daily protection from the damaging effects of sunlight and environmental pollutants and is jam packed full of good-for-the-skin ingredients (Tomato Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba, and Sqaulane) that will help protect, restore and hydrate your skin, so you can get on with the fun stuff.
Wash your face (as above). After a day of wearing skincare products, your skin can get a little congested so there’s no harm in double cleansing to ensure your skin is super clean and ready for your night time moisturiser.
Now that your skin is squeaky clean, moisturise with a good quality product with added Vitamin B3 and Vitamin C. These two ingredients are simple, safe and amazingly effective at reversing signs of sun damage and premature aging, plus are gentle enough for all skin types and ages.
Try our new Good Night Skin Restoring Cream, designed to help balance and brighten skin tone, reduce the appearance of pigmentation and fight the visible signs of aging. It is packed full of skin-loving ingredients like Kakadu Plum (Vitamin C), Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Carnosine, Macadamia Oil, Coconut Oil Extract and Aloe Vera, prepping your skin for a restful sleep.
