‘Fess up, guys: How much time do you really dedicate to your skin care routine? If the answer is “not so much,” you may want to reconsider. There are some basic steps that should be a part of anyone’s skin care routine—we’re talking about washing your face with a facial cleanser, applying moisturizer to hydrate your complexion, and taking sun protection measures before heading out the door for the day. And it turns out that guys have specific skin care needs—like post-shave care—that may need to be addressed, too. (Of course, there are add-ons you can make, like dabbing on an eye cream to address the appearance of crow’s feet or dark circles under the eyes, faking a tan with self-tanner, and relaxing with a face mask a few times a week—but we’ll save most of those skin care routine upgrades for another day!) Putting together a skin care routine for men doesn’t have to be difficult, though. Keep reading to learn about our best skin care products for men and how to use them.
Pollution, sweat, and impurities can all build up on the surface of your skin, which can lead to clogged pores (and clogged pores can lead to breakouts and blackheads). Which is why you should keep your bathroom stocked with a facial cleanser. The L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra Energetic Extreme Cleanser Infused with Charcoal is formulated with charcoal to capture and get rid of all kinds of dirt from the surface of skin and address five skin issues cause by daily city grime, including oily skin, dirt, dullness, clogged pores, and sticky touch. (Check out our charcoal mask while you’re at it!)
How to use it: Apply the facial cleanser twice daily to wet skin, concentrating on your forehead, nose, and chin, which can tend to appear oilier than other areas of your face.
Everyday shaving can irritate your skin, so soothing it should be a top priority. The L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra Energetic After Shave Balm addresses the signs of post-shaving discomfort and provides long-lasting hydration.
How to use it: Apply it all over your face and neck after shaving.
It’s not just your skin that could benefit from the use of a moisturizer—if you have a beard, that needs some love, too! Try the L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra Energetic 3-Day Beard Moisturizer. This moisturizer is formulated with vitamin E to help hydrate your skin. When it comes to your beard, this moisturizer can help facial hair feel soft, supple, and smooth.
How to use it: Apply the moisturizer onto clean face and beard morning and night.
You’re not immune to the appearance of dark circles under the eyes or under-eye bags. The L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra Energetic Ice Cold Eye Roller targets five eye concerns: dark circles, under-eye bags, puffiness, tiredness, and roughness. Oh, and did we mention that it has a cooling applicator?
How to use it: Gently roll the eye cream under your eyes, starting from the bridge of the nose and moving outward. (Here’s How to Get Rid of Under-Eye Bags.)
Fatigue can do a number on your skin, leaving it feeling dry and looking dull. So remember: You should apply moisturizer twice a day—once in the morning and once at night—after you’re done using your facial cleanser. Formulated with magnesium and vitamin C, the L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Hydra Energetic Anti-Fatigue 24H Moisturizer targets five signs of skin fatigue, including dryness, dullness, tightness, roughness, and loss of firmness.
How to use it: Twice daily, energetically massage the moisturizer over cleansed face to stimulate the skin.
Does the appearance of wrinkles have you feeling down? It could be time to add an anti-aging moisturizer to your skin care routine. The L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Vita Lift Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer addresses the appearance of sagging on the face and neck, reduces the look of wrinkles, and helps skin feel firmer. It can also help soothe skin and help minimize the feel of razor burn.
How to use it: Apply the moisturizer morning and night to face and neck.
Like the moisturizer above, the L’Oréal Paris Men Expert™ Vita Lift SPF 15 Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer addresses the appearance of wrinkles and helps to soothe skin. It provides long-lasting hydration and has a non-greasy, non-sticky feel. Bonus: It also is formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 15, making it a great morning skin care product pick. Wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen daily as directed super-important—but that’s not the only sun protection measure you should take. Additionally, you should also reapply sunscreen at least every two hours (or immediately after swimming or sweating), limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which are peak hours), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
How to use it: Apply the moisturizer with SPF to your face and neck in the A.M.
