A basic skincare routine for men

A basic 3 step skincare routine for men.

Guy’s we need to talk.

It’s time to fess up. It’s time to stop sneaking around.

It’s been going on for so long we don’t think we can trust you anymore.

So. It stops today!

Of course, we’re talking about a basic skincare routine. Ah yes, the men in our lives. They’ve come a long way.

And yet. Skincare? Not so much.

Usually, it’s a barely-there attempt at protecting their skin from the sun and not much else.

Secretly, they’d like to do more. But, it’s all a bit vain. It’s something we women do. It’s not for them.

Moisturiser? Well, that feels too greasy and weird.

What’s all the fuss about? Their skin’s okay. Isn’t it?

Until that one day, when they sneak a little something, they found in the bathroom cabinet that felt so cooling for their tired eyes.

So, with this newfound feeling of relief, why stop now? The trouble is, the lovely men in our lives, keep pinching a little of ours. Who’s going to notice? Sound familiar? Yep.

It’s time to level up and start them on a basic skincare routine that’s just for them.

One that’s not too fussy, or feels too greasy and doesn’t take too much time.

It should be easy, but it should also be something that keeps their skin looking and feeling healthy.

Let’s start at the beginning; a basic 3 step skincare routine for the men in our lives. Maybe it’s your partner or husband? Or, your son or it could be a friend who needs a little nudge in the right direction.

An easy three-step skincare routine.

1. Cleanse  2. Soothe and tone  3. Moisturise and protect.

Aspect Exfoliating Cleanser 200ml


Using whatever soap is available in the bathroom can be replaced with a gentle exfoliating cleanser that can double as a shaving cream.

Aspect Exfoliating Cleanser is an exfoliating and gentle foaming cleanser combining the power of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids to improve the appearance of dull skin by removing excess oil and build-up of dirt and debris leaving the skin vibrant and radiant.

Clarity+ Sebu-Wash Gel CleanserEnviron Clarity+ Sebu-Wash Gel Cleanser is for oily skin types that may have acne conditions, such as congestion, breakouts and blackheads.

A gel cleanser containing tea tree oil that refines and cleans the skin, controlling bacteria while reducing oil flow with each use.

Body EssentiA Derma-Lac Lotion

This cleanser is particularly suitable for oily skin types with a tendency to razor bump after shaving.

Soothe and tone. 

If the skin feels sensitive after shaving? It’s a good idea to add a lotion that soothes irritation in the skin to keep it calm and hydrated.

Environ’s DermaLac Lotion will soothe and hydrate the skin and minimise any after shaving irritation or razor bump.

Moisturise and protect.  

Aspect Hydrating Face SPF50

Most guys avoid moisturising because they don’t like the way it makes their skin feel. We’ve got the perfect solution to combining lightweight moisture with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Perfect for every day.

Aspect Sun Hydrating Face SPF 50+ provides a blend of antioxidants and UV protective actives to deliver very high sun protection, as well the ultimate nourishment for skins in need of more support against the ageing and damaging effects of UV exposure.

Skin EssentiA Eye Gel

And a bonus tip: Care for tired eyes.

Adding a soothing eye gel is an excellent way to hydrate the skin around the eyes as well as provide soothing relief to tired eyes.

Environ Skin EssentiA Eye Gel is a soothing eye gel that instantly hydrates and soothes the skin around the eyes while adding vitamins A, C & E plus anti-ageing peptides to keep fine lines at bay.
