Yes guys, we’re talking to you! It’s estimated that more than 63% of men do not regularly use face wash according to this study. Considering how much pollution, dirt, debris and grime we face on a daily basis, it’s pretty much necessary to cleanse our faces every night to keep our skin feeling fresh and clean.
We’ve put together a simple, but effective skincare routine for men that will make their skin feel clean, hydrated and healthy. It’s an easy three step routine with the addition of a weekly masking session that won’t take much time to implement into daily life.
The first step for a great skincare routine is cleansing! You have to start with a clean canvas for your other skincare products to sink in, so make sure you’re effectively removing dirt, grime, pollution and sweat from your pores with a great cleanser. Our Better Bean Clean Face Coffee Cleanser is the perfect cleanser - it helps brighten skin tone, improve skin texture, and helps naturally buff away blackheads and impurities while exfoliating dry or discolored patches. It’s also a great cleanser to use before shaving for men to prevent ingrown hairs on the face.
The next step after cleansing is a hydrating toner. Unlike the acidic and drying astringents men have used in the past, the toners of today are meant to hydrate and prep the skin for the rest of your skincare routine.
The Fresh Brew Facial Toner soothes and protects the skin with ingredients like Chamomile Flower Extract, Linden Flower Extract and Coffea Arabica seed extract. Skin is left feeling softer and looking more radiant - something everyone will appreciate.
After cleansing and toning, the next step in a low maintenance skincare routine for men is to hydrate! This is super important so the skin stays soft and moisturized. We recommend using moisturizer day and night.
For skin on the drier side, try something like a moisture-rich souffle that will help quench skin and soothe inflammation, like our Whipped Moisturizing Cream for Normal to Dry Skin. Oiler skin types will appreciate this moisturizer that won’t leave them feeling greasy or clog pores: Whipped Moisturizing Cream for Normal to Oily Skin.
Get into the habit of a once a week mask to deep clean pores and exfoliate away dead skin. This Coffee Crush Exfoliating Peeling Gel is a great mask for men especially because it helps get rid of dead skin sitting on the surface, giving you a smoother shave and helping prevent ingrown hairs.
It’s also essential to take time for self-care every week, and doing a face mask and relaxing is a great way to do that.
