Men’s Skincare Routine – Choose the Right Cleanser

Keep it Simple!

If there is one thing I have learnt from my dad, my two brothers and now my husband, it is that when it comes to men and their skincare routine, it has to be simple!  If it’s complicated, men just won’t stick to it even with the best intentions.

Men are taking a lot more pride in their appearance and are experimenting with skincare products even if they do not take to Instagram and shout about it like women tend to do.

The biggest tips I can give you are use high quality ingredients and try and keep it as natural as possible.

Get the Right Cleanser for your Skin

Kiehl’s is one of the original and one of the best men’s ranges, Kiehl’s Facial Fuel is a bestseller for a reason.  Try their Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash.  It is formulated with caffeine, vitamins, and uplifting citrus extracts to refresh and waken your spirits and skin. Caffeine has been shown to help reduce the appearance of puffiness when used in skincare products and vitamin E helps neutralize skin-damaging free radicals and has soothing moisturizing properties.

If you prefer more of a scrub consistency then try Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub.  It can be addictive so I am forewarning you!

Other great cleansers for men:

Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel .  This is particularly great for oily skins and my husband’s favourite.

Go 24:7 Face Scrub. This face scrub is full of natural grains which exfoliate the skin in a gentle way.  This brand is a favourite with Mr David Beckham so you are in great company.
