Most men’s skincare routine simply involves soap and water. Unfortunately, that won’t do much to prevent the effects of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, skin dehydration, enlarged pores and acne. The best skincare regime for men would still involve a cleanser, toner, moisturiser and eye serum to maintain a healthy and youthful complexion.Should men use women’s skincare? The answer is no, because men’s facial skin is biologically different compared to women’s. Men have thicker skin and their follicles produce more oil. While most skincare products are generally unisex, many of them contain ingredients that benefit women’s skin more than men’s. Read this to understand why men should not rely on women’s skincare products.
Clarins’ men facial care range is formulated with plant-based ingredients that are gentle yet effective on the skin. We cater the essentials to address the usual skincare concerns faced by men, such as dehydration, wrinkles and puffy eyes that come with age or fatigue.
A good cleanser is always the first step in every skincare routine as it helps remove dirt, impurities and oil. One of our best selling skincare for men is the Clarinsmen Exfoliating Cleanser. Enriched with Bison Grass extracts, this exfoliating men’s cleansing gel eliminates all traces of pollution, unclogs pores and purifies the skin for a smoother, refreshed complexion. Bison Grass is an aromatic plant found mostly in Europe and North America. Its subtle vanilla scent energises the senses while also soothing the skin and preventing the appearance of shaving rash. Dehydration is a common cause for fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, it’s important to keep the skin hydrated with a suitable moisturiser after cleansing. The Clarins Super Moisture Balm is a highly-rated men’s moisturising cream that improves the skin’s moisture barrier levels and prevents dehydration. Made with Bison Grass and Organic Leaf of Life extracts, this non-greasy balm delivers soothing comfort and hydration to the skin while preventing moisture loss. This is recommended for men with dry skin.The Clarins Super Moisture Gel feels like an ice-cold drink on a hot summer’s day. This lightweight gel moisturiser quenches the skin without leaving behind a greasy or sticky residue, and ensures that the skin stays properly hydrated throughout the day. It suits all skin types, including those with oily or sensitive skin. Women are not the only ones concerned about puffy eyes. Men’s skin is prone to ageing too, and the effects are especially visible around the eyes where puffiness and crow’s feet form easily under the effects of stress, fatigue and late nights. Therefore, eye care products are some of the best anti-ageing skincare investments. The ClarinsMen Anti-fatigue Eye Serum is a non-oily, fast-absorbing eye cream that effectively combats early visible signs of ageing around the eyes. It also reduces puffiness and dark circles around the eyes, leaving your eyes fresh and rejuvenated. Learn more about the 7-step skincare routine for men.
