Unlike women, we don’t usually look to makeup to cover up the unwanted aspects of our skin, so it’s important to build a skincare routine that can improve the quality of our skin. Merely cleansing your skin isn’t enough to achieve or maintain young-looking and blemish-free skin. Luckily enough, we only need to add a few more steps to build an effective Skincare routine. A little more effort brings a lot more reward when it comes to Skincare.
Why Every Man needs a Skincare Routine
Men’s skin is around 25% thicker than women’s. It also contains more collagen which gives your skin that firm and tight appearance. However, the collagen in your skin reduces at a constant rate over the years, unlike women whose collagen content only reduces later in life.
Men’s skin is also oilier and shinier than female skin, with twice as much Sebum (Oil) production and larger pores. This means you’re much more prone to acne and less prone to dry skin.
Looking at all the skincare advertising, you’d probably think that skincare routines are only good for women, but that’s simply not true at all. Now that you’ve learned the key differences of your skin to women’s, take a look at our simple steps to building a skincare routine that’s perfectly suited for you.
How to Build the Best Skincare Routine for Men
What are the best ways to achieve clear and healthy skin for men? Here is an easy and practical Skincare routine tailor-made for men to keep your skin at its natural best.
Men’s skin produces more Sebum (Oil) because of testosterone. The excess amount of sebum production makes your skin more prone to oily skin, large pores and acne. The Mastic Origins Facial Cleanser is an organic soap/gel that deeply cleanses clogged pores. The combined action of Mastic and Organic Cannabis Oil has proven to have very high antibacterial and antifungal properties while spinach stimulates the skin while having astringent properties. Its rich foam removes impurities leaving your skin clean and hydrated.
Follow up your routine with the Mastic Origins Toning Lotion, a Tonic face and neck lotion that makes the perfect combination for effective deep cleansing. Its ingredients of Mastic and Allantoin give the necessary antibacterial shield, and Organic Cannabis Oil refreshes and rejuvenates your skin. Panthenol, and Aloe, which are both rich in vitamins and enzymes, moisturizes and soothes your skin. Chamomile soothes the texture of your skin and maintains your skin’s water balance, guaranteeing that smooth, clear and matte-finish looking skin.
Exfoliating your skin removes the outermost layers of your skin cells, this step is important to increase the effectiveness of the products you use on your skin. Exfoliating regularly can also aid in decreasing the likelihood of clogged pores, which reduces the chances of unwanted break outs. The Magic Roots Face Scrub is an exfoliating face scrub jelly infused with Red Soil and Mastic. It removes dead cells from the face with the help of grains from the red soil and at the same time offers a feeling of softness to the skin that will captivate you from the very first application.
Care for the Eyes
If you’re struggling with the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and dark under eye circles, the MythicEye Lifting Serum is a quick-acting anti-wrinkle eye serum, which also reduces the appearance of dark circles and bags around the eyes. Phytodermina lifting extract is a plant agent with direct lifting action on the application area, which has the effect of reducing the puffiness in the area under the eyes, tightening the skin. The caffeine-lecithin complex helps in reducing the appearance of eye bags and changes the tired face of the skin to regain its natural glow.
It’s important to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Maintain your skin’s water reserves with the Hydrative Face & Neck Drops, a moisturizing organic serum. Its ingredient Spirulina has an effect on the peripheral circulation which increases the oxygenation of cells resulting in tightening the skin, its high content of vitamins also moisturizes the skin. If you want to go for a cream, the Energizing Moisturizing Cream provides absolute 24-hour hydration of the face thanks to its unique composition of Mastic and Spirulina.
Your older self will be thanking you for shielding your skin from sun damage now. Maintain young and healthy-looking skin by putting on sunscreen before you head out and begin your day. Cap off your skincare routine with a non-greasy sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Weekly Face Mask
Remember, a little more effort brings a whole lot more reward. Apply the Pesto Mastiha Peel-Off Mask at least once a week. It is a gentle, pure and organic cream that hydrates & firms your skin, infused with Wild Basil and Mastic. Buttersperm butter, aloe extracts and vitamin E help rejuvenate the hydrolipid film and restore water balance. Hyaluronic acid moisturizes the local layers, reducing irritation and the possibility of skin infection, in combination with allantoin and the antibacterial properties of Mastic. Of course, if you want faster results, then you can apply the mask every day after you’ve completed all the earlier steps.
