What skincare for men do u recommend ?

24 posts in this topic

I'm a little bit skeptic about the effects of skincare on our faces but I wanna try it and see.

Do you have a product to recommand, a product that did the work for you (a clearer skin, less buttons .... ) ?

I don’t think men skincare should be fundamentally different from female. Male lines usually just have different smells, but you don’t want any skincare that contains perfume to begin with as it is extremely damaging to ones skin. I recommend you go to a good dermatologist, have them asses your skin, and prescribe the right products. Then I would take it with a grain of salt as well and do my own research on it. It generally depends on your skin concern, if there’s any. Most of the fancy stuff they sell in Sephora is complete junk too, I myself have been on a super long journey of just finding a good moisturizer…

You'd better off solving these kind of problems internally instead of relying on temporary shortcuts. If you have swelling on your face, try to look for ways of reducing or completely disabling all inflammation in your body. If you see pimples constantly appearing in the same region on your face, this may be a liver problem, too. Consider seeing a doctor whose expertise is internal medicine. The color of your face might be related to the things you eat. If you have wrinkles on your face, applying face mask or trying cosmetic creams on the problematic areas can be said to be the right time to benefit from as an external non-invasive operation.

Coconut oil for face and some natural essential oil soup for body & hair. Some sort of aluminium free deo is a good idea too. Everything else is just marketing and riddled with chemicals. Most global brands of popular skincare like are garbage and chemical cocktail. Skin should be naturally hydrated mostly from the inside through a healthy lifestyle and diet.

What kind of soup for body/hair do you use?

Just don't use a lot of it because it absorbs very slowly.

I would avoid products with any kind of oil especially if you have oily skin.. it’s like giving a glass of oil to drink to a thirsty person.

Purador anti hair fall shampoo is good one. It's soap free since soaps like sls do not belong on the face and scalp. Soaps strip natural body oils and raise the pH of the skin which is not good for it. Screws with your endocrine system also. 

For face, use gentle cleansers that are low ph which is important. Cosrx good morning cleansers a good one. While Michael is right, most facial products are chemical cocktails, it's also true they help prevent skin aging. Properly cleansed and moistured skin will always have less wrinkles than just trying to do everything with diet alone. 

It's good to use a moisturizer after cleansing as cleansing strips natural oils and dry unmoisturized skin leads to wrinkles. When you talk and smile, your stretching the skin, so if your skins dried out it creates more tears, i.e. wrinkles, than if say you have elastic well moistened skin that can bounce around with your expressions. That's just a simplification of course, but the principle holds true.

Some people can get away with coconut oil on the face, but it is comedogenic for some (clogs pores leading to pimples). Easiest to just buy a face lotion like cerave am/pm. Cosrx is a good Korean brand that's more affordable and cleaner ingredients too. If you have good skin then you can probably use whatever, but if your prone to clogging you'll have to find something that works for you.

I'd stay away from essential oils in facial products since they're irritants, but the scalp and body is fine.

Be careful with coconut oil. It creates a barrier on the skin (does not absorb) and over time your skin will not produce its own moisturizing oils. This eventually creates drier and more irritated skin. 

I've found a very light amount of pure mineral oil (baby oil) to be nice. Sometimes I will do a small amount of Vaseline. An olive oil made specifically for skin is good. Castor oil blends can be nice too.

Coconut oil is ok if not used all the time and if it gets washed off at the end of the day as it does build up easily.

I always switch up my facial moisturizers so my skin doesn't get used to something, creating irritation down the line. 

Always keep in mind that less is more when it comes to skin and hair care. When we disrupt the body's natural ability to cleanse itself things get out of whack. That's why a lot of women have worse hair and skin than guys...they're constantly stripping the hair and skin of its natural oils. These oils are what keep the skin and scalp healthy. 

Get a basic, minimal ingredient face wash and use one of the above-mentioned oils sparingly.

what ingredients should one look for in bar soap that can be used on the body, face and beard? I moved and can't find soap that is as good and as natural where I used to live.

maybe @Flowerfaeiry can help answer that, she has a whole Instagram channel on natural cosmetics & sustainable living, you should check her out. (#sarahmargaretnaturals) <-- hope she won't mind me sharing 9_9

I'm not an expert on this sort of stuff but we use Beauty Kitchen UK quite a bit so google some of their products and try to find something similar maybe? Stuff like this https://beautykitchen.co.uk/collections/body-wash/products/the-sustainables-minty-fresh-organic-vegan-body-wash-500ml

You'll pay extra for those, I'm not gonna lie but I'd rather do that if it means freeing up some of the toxic burden
