Do you ever feel like grooming advice for men is either too advanced or too basic?
On one end of the scale, men are targeted with 3-in-1 products that aren’t tailored to their skin type or concern. It’s as if every man has the same basic needs (spoiler: they don’t).
But on the other hand, the idea of committing to a 7-step skincare routine is overwhelming. You know you won’t stick to it.
It’s time to find the middle ground for men who want to look their best but don’t want to spend half their life in front of a mirror. So, whether you’re a grooming expert or curious beginner, we’ve got refreshingly straightforward grooming and skincare tips for men that’ll fit just right.
Can Guys Use Female Skin Products?
In general, there are a few subtle differences between men and women’s skin.
Men tend to have:
- Thicker skin,
- More facial hair, and
- Higher levels of oil (sebum)
Of course, just as everyone is unique, so too is their skin. Men also share many similarities with women, as anyone (regardless of gender) may have to deal with skin concerns like premature ageing, acne, pigmentation and scarring.
That’s why, at DermapenWorld™, all our products are defined by the skin types and concerns they’re suitable for, not by gender. Everyone deserves to feel good in their skin.
Skincare Ingredients for Men
The active ingredients that work in female skin will also work in male skin. But with so much commentary online, it can feel like you’re drowning in information on something as simple as moisturising.
Dp Dermaceuticals™ is a speciality skincare line that contains powerful active ingredients to target certain skin concerns. Rather than diving into each skincare ingredient to piece together a routine, use these 3-steps to achieve better skincare and grooming habits without the overwhelm.
Skincare Routine for Men
If your skin tends to be naturally oily, this foam cleanser is a great way to get started. It contains Salicylic Acid, which is a powerful BHA. It can reach deeper to dislodge residual oil and impurities for a clarified complexion. It also improves the appearance of acne and enlarged pores.
One of the many reasons why men love CLR FOAM CLEANSER™ is that it doubles as a gentle shaving foam as well as a cleanser. Finding products that are effective and time-efficient makes it easy to stick to a routine. And when you stick to a routine, you can get better results.
Step 2 Moisturise with CLR LOTION
You can’t stumble through men’s skincare online or in-store without hearing that you should be moisturising. Like most clichés, it’s true. Incorporating a daily moisturiser is one of the easiest ways to care for your skin.
Just like any skin, yours can benefit from potent ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide. So go ahead and soak up all that goodness with a light moisturiser that replenishes hydration.
Contrary to what you might think, oily and problematic skin needs moisturising too. CLR LOTION™ combats breakouts with antibacterial agents, vitamins, and minerals in Manuka Honey and the exfoliating and anti-inflammatory effects of Willow Bark Extract.
If you’re concerned by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or acne scars, incorporating a retinoid into your evening routine is a great way to target these specific concerns. This wonder ingredient is a form of Vitamin A and is extremely popular with women and men alike.
Dp Dermaceuticals RETINAL ACTIVE™ contains Retinaldehyde, which is the highest form of retinoid available without a prescription. Firmness, elasticity, and tone are improved, and oil production is balanced.
No one is immune to the damage caused by UV rays. That’s why it’s essential that men, as well as women, protect their skin with suitable sunscreen.
COVER RECOVER™ goes beyond what a typical SPF can deliver. It’s available as a foundation, but the Clear and Sheer options are perfect for men who want a cover that can’t be detected. The pigment in the Sheer blends with most skin tones to camouflage imperfections without looking like make-up.
Microneedling for Men
Now you’ve got your routine down, what’s next? Dermapen Treatments™ are popular with both men and women who want to look and feel their best without the downtime associated with some rejuvenation procedures.
The series of microneedling procedures boost collagen and elastin to improve the appearance of multiple skin concerns at once. For example, you could reduce your acne AND improve the look of left-over scars or pigmentation.
What you may not know is that Dermapen Treatments™ also needle in the active ingredients in specialty serums called Meso-Glides™ so they can work at optimal skin layers.
