While women often glory in their laborious skincare routines, men are still out there looking for a no-BS guide to skincare. Enter this GR8 guide. For those looking for a simple and straightforward way to care for their skin, without spending 30-minutes twice a day running through a 10-step routine, we got you.

While yes, face masks, serums, toners, and water essences do help with your skin appearance, they’re not mandatory. What you need instead is to focus on the baseline. The essentials that won’t add too much to your morning or before-bedtime routine, but that can help you look younger. Not to mention, the routine should be easy enough for you to stick to it for the long haul.

A Simple Skin Care Regimen

When it comes to following a routine that shows effective results, men are looking for a simplified routine. While the one above is the ideal regimen to make sure your skin receives everything it needs to thrive, you can always simplify it.

  1. Cleanse
  2. Use an antioxidant serum
  3. Moisturize with SPF

Be smart about the choices you make and how you choose your products. For example, most facial cleansers double as face masks when left for longer. Many night creams are infused with retinol to prevent wrinkles and fine lines. And, of course, most moisturizers have some sun protection in them. If you’re looking to simplify your routine, count on these multi-tasking products to help you.

Men’s Skin Care Routine by Age

Additionally, to understand your skin type, you must consider your age. Someone in their early 20s might struggle with acne and blackheads. While someone in their 40s is already seeing some signs of aging, including those pesky fine lines by their forehead.

The key in skincare is prevention, so whether you’re in your early 20s or are jumping on the skincare train late in your 50s, prevention and treatment are crucial.

Skincare for Men in their 20s

Start setting a foundation for healthy skincare habits to prevent acne, fine lines, and dark spots. In your 20s, your skin needs protection from stress, environmental factors, and late nights. Make sure you never skip the sunscreen and night cream if you want to stay younger-looking forever.

Skincare for Men in their 30s

By now, you should feel more comfortable running through your basic skincare routine. While this one remains, it’s time to add more potent ingredients such as vitamin A, acids, and antioxidant serums. If you want your skin to look refreshed and healthy, the key in your 30s will be exfoliating with acids and protecting with serums and sunscreen.

Skincare for Men in Their 40s & Beyond

Hopefully, you took care of your skin in the previous decades. If you didn’t, don’t despair, no one joins this game too late. If you want to achieve a younger looking appearance though, at this stage, it might be time to consider more drastic measures like Botox or fillers to catch up.

The Bottom Line on Skin Care

While skincare has been mostly linked to women, let’s not forget that our skin is our largest organ, and caring for it is a form of self-care. Thankfully, men, particularly those from ages 15 to 45, are finally joining the skincare game and are taking control of their skin and appearance, as well as embracing the concept of self-care.

Skin concerns are not just vanity. Research has shown that someone who struggles with skin issues has a self-image that’s significantly impacted. Not to mention their relationships and overall performance.

The good news is that it’s never too late to start a skincare routine.
