The Best Men’s Skincare Routine

Men’s skincare has come a long way in the last 20 years. Having a solid skincare routine should be part of your essential grooming prep, but it can easily feel overwhelming with the vast array of products on the market.

At Dogface, we are passionate about men’s skincare, so we’ve created this simple guide to help you establish your men’s skincare routine. We’ll break down each step and highlight why it’s important. Here is the best men’s skincare routine for healthy, strong, and smooth skin.

Step 1: Cleanse

Just like you wash your body with shower gel, you need to wash your face with a good cleanser. This will remove the dirt, bacteria, and other impurities that collect on your skin.

Different cleansers do different things, so it’s helpful to check what a product does before buying it. Some cleansers are targeted towards fighting breakouts, others are formulated to help dry skin. The Dogface Wakeup Gel is a multipurpose face wash that cleanses, exfoliates, stimulates, hydrates and tones your skin all in one, meaning you don’t have to incorporate these as extra steps into your routine.

The best men’s skincare routine will go one step further by adding a facial brush to the cleansing stage. A tool such as the Dogface Technobrush will penetrate the skin so you get a deeper cleanse, while stimulating skin cells so you’re left with supercharged skin.

Top tip: in the evening, cleanse twice if you’re wearing SPF during the day. The first cleanse will remove the SPF, and the second cleanse will remove dirt and bacteria from your skin.

Step 2: Eye cream

The skin under the eyes is the most delicate on the face, and also the quickest to show signs of aging. That’s why all men’s skincare routines should include an eye cream, to keep this sensitive area healthy and hydrated. 

Whether you suffer from puffiness, dark circles or bags – or you just want to prevent these issues before they start to occur – an eye cream is going to help. These creams are specially formulated to target the under-eye skin, which regular face creams aren’t generally made for.

Aim for an eye cream that has multiple benefits, so you’re adding the most value to your skincare routine. The Dogface Energizing Eye Cream has 5 benefits, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and brightening skin tone.

Step 3: Moisturize

No men’s skincare routine would be complete without a good moisturizer. If you want smooth, soft, and youthful looking skin, moisturizing is the essential step you just can’t skip.

The best men’s moisturizers are designed to smooth and firm men’s skin. They’ll help with dryness, sensitivity, irritation, uneven skin tone, and oil production, depending on the type of moisturizer you go for. They can also help with reducing fine lines and wrinkles if that’s your concern.

For maximum benefits, we recommend using a different moisturizer in the morning and evening. It may seem excessive, but this way you get double the potential, as day and night creams are usually formulated to do different things. The Dogface Day Boom for example will lock in all your skin’s moisture throughout the day, whereas the Dogface Night Boost includes retinol, which works to improve skin tone and reduce fine lines while you sleep.

And there you have the ultimate men’s skincare routine. Incorporate these steps morning and night and you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes. And if you’re ever stuck for gift ideas in the future, nothing beats the gift of great skin.
