Men’s Skincare Products to Boost Confidence & Improve Physical Appearance

Skincare for men is different than it is for women. Think: less focus on multi-product/multi-step routines— more focus on fast and easy application with bare minimum upkeep. That being said, you’ll want to be sure you’re using high-quality skincare products that work AND allow you to cleanse, rinse, apply and go. This month, we’re challenging the men of Westchester to a weekly 3-minute skincare challenge.

Simply dedicate 3-minutes or less per day to the skincare steps below and watch as your body reveals healthier, better-looking skin…

1) Exfoliate (30 Seconds, 2x Per Week)

This step unclogs your pores by removing dirt, sebum and dead skin cells from your skin’s top layer—stopping blackheads, cystic acne and ingrown hairs in their tracks. Chances are, if you’re constantly wrestling with ingrown hairs as a result of shaving your face, you need to be exfoliating more. Exfoliation keeps your skin healthy and allows newly growing hairs to break through the skin’s surface with ease—thereby eliminating ingrown hairs or razor burn. It also keeps the healthiest skin cells on the surface of your skin, leading to a brighter, healthier complexion with a minimized appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Our skincare professionals love Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight by SkinCeuticals  It soothes the skin and stimulates cellular exfoliation for refined skin texture.

Directions: Exfoliate with this product 2-3 times per week to enjoy its maximum benefits and see healthier, radiant skin.

2) Cleanse (30 Seconds Nightly)

If anyone has ever given you a hard time for not washing your face with soap or cleanser every single morning, we’re here to tell you—you’re right! When it comes to cleansing, there is too much of a good thing. Too much washing can disrupt your skin’s natural oils, which serve as a barrier to protect your healthy skin from dirt, pollution and free radicals.

That being said, you must cleanse your face with a targeted cleanser every night. Why? Because your skin has been exposed to bacteria, dirt and pollution all day (and yes, this is still the case when you spend the day in sweatpants watching football on the couch). If you skip a quick cleanse, you’ll be allowing said gunk to seep into your pores overnight, which causes the very things we are trying to eliminate (acne, ingrown hairs, dull skin, etc.)

Our favorite cleansing product for men is Simply Clean Gel by SkinCeuticals because it efficiently removes pore clogging impurities and excess oil. Cleanse every night for 30 seconds minimum.

Directions: Apply cleanser to dampened skin, massage into the face in small circles, and rinse off. Yes— it’s that simple!

3) Moisturize (10 Seconds, Morning + Night)

Your third and final skincare step? Moisturizing. Applying moisture to your skin with products rich in nutrients and botanicals helps to restore hydration, increase the skin’s firmness and form a protective barrier to protect the skin from dirt, bacteria, and during the day—the sun’s harmful UV rays.

For daytime moisture, we love MicroDay Rejuvenating Cream with SPF 50 by NEOCUTIS for men. Its SPF-factor protects your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, while Micro protein complex (MPC) plus hydrating Hyaluronic Acid help nourish, protect, and preserve skin’s youthful look.

Directions: Apply generously 15min before sun exposure.

For nighttime moisture, we love Bio Gel by NEOCUTIS for men. Bio-restorative Hydrogel combines the power of PSP (growth factors) with Hyaluronic acid to target the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The oil-free texture is ideal for warmer climates and very suitable for men.

Directions: Apply morning and/or evening to face and neck.

Boost your confidence and improve your physical appearance by attaining your healthiest, best-looking skin in these three simple steps.
