5 Best Skin Care Products For Men

Taking care of your skin is as important as taking care of your hair and overall health. Health in general by exercising and eating healthy makes one live longer. However, living longer and also looking younger is much essential.

Not only women are helping the skin care industry running, but us men as well. In fact, for the past few years skincare products for men have increased in sales. And just like anything out there, there’re bad ones and good ones. Here, I’m going to lay out the best skin care products for men. Some of the products, I use them myself and I have seen great results.

Some may worry buying these products will end up getting expensive, but trust me, using these products the right way and on top of that having a healthy diet is an investment worth making. After all, it’s about you, your health and looks.

Before I begin with the list, taking care of your skin is not an arduous task. In fact, it’s easy as brushing your teeth and that much important it should be. Make sure you moisturize twice a day; clean twice a day and always wear sunscreen in order to prevent skin damage. That’s it.

Time for the list. Go over these products one at a time and get them, in case you don’t have them. I’m going to start with…

  1. Awesome article Yama, I enjoyed the read 🙂

    There really isn’t enough information out there on mens skincare so I think it’s wonderful that you’re blogging about this topic!

    I personally use Dermalogica and couldn’t recommend it more highly, it’s a fantastic brand. Love all their products. REN is also a great choice.

    I’ll be passing this article onto my partner to read for sure!

    1. Hi Kiara, thanks so much for the comment. Yes, with men skincare products, some are still not talking about it openly. It’s a good thing though now because men are actually investing money on the products as well. After all, it’s about our health and looks. I agree with you about Dermalogica. Also one of my favorites.

  2. Hi, I`m from Wealthy Affiliate; your website does look pretty good; and it seems you have it set up well; I guess I could say; put the Image later in the Website and get to the “meat” of the website immediately. Also; you may want to break up some of your paragraphs. Some of them are run on Paragraphs; and you may want to break them up into two or three sentences; other than that; and maybe putting the Image later in the Site; your site looks pretty professional.

  3. I am an advocate of skin care for men. I am always telling my husband that he needs to take care of his skin and that skin care is NOT just for women. Thank you for your ideas. I’ll be sure to share these with my husband.

    1. He sounds a bit like me. I used to be like that. Always thought these products were just for women. As I began using them one at a time I saw results. It works. 🙂

  4. Hi great site and info! Men need to care for their skin as well so this is the perfect place for men to go for this. I used the peter thomas roth glycolic pads a few years ago they have great products. Very informative!

    1. Hi Karli. Thank your for comment. Peter Thomas is the only one I have not yet used, but will for sure. I’ve been reading and hearing lots of good things about it.
