The Simplified Men’s Skincare Routine

Men’s skincare routines don’t need to be complicated. We have enough going on in life without adding more to our to-do list.

‘’When we initially started testing our range, we quickly found that men do not want to invest a lot of time in their skincare routine. If it can’t be done in 5 minutes, they're not interested. - Shannon, Primary Man pty ltd

Below we’ve highlighted our top four tips for getting your mug to look the best it possibly can.

Protect your Skin

A skincare routine is no good if you’re dead.

We can’t stress enough how important it is to protect yourself from the sun. Statistically, men are more prone to do dying of skin cancer than women. 

‘’The risk of mortality is also higher for men - 67% of Australians who die from skin cancer are men

Men tend to work jobs that require them to be outside and exposed to the sun more. This coupled with men’s ‘’she’ll be right, no worries attitude’’ leads a lot of men to expose themselves to risk unnecessarily.

To avoid becoming one of the growing statics, use sunscreen. It’s been shown to reduce the risk of melanoma and skin cancers but it needs to be applied correctly. Look for a sunscreen that has a minimum of SPF 30+. Make sure you cover your skin, wearing a hat and eye protection as well. 

Outside of dying, the sun is one of the biggest factors for making you look older than you are. The UV rays from the sun can permanently damage your skin cells, leading to increased wrinkles.  

This is especially true around the eyes and forehead, so sunglasses and a hat are a great idea for those who want to look younger for longer. 

Cleanse Your skin

Before applying any additional products to your face, you want to make sure your face is clean, which is going to require more than just a quick splash of water.

Throughout the day your mug will accumulate pollutants, excess oil, dead skin, dirt and grime.

These can buildup on your skin, which could potentially lead to breakouts, dehydration both of which can lead to you looking older than you really are.

Cleansers help by not only cleaning the skin but keeping it hydrated as well. by helping to manage our skin PH levels, the cleanser helps our skin to retain water. 

We want our skin to stay hydrated to ensure wrinkles and fine lines are reduced as much as possible.

Our cleanser leaves your skin looking brighter and can help to improve the absorption of moisturisers/ serums as well as helping to unclog pores.

Hydrate your skin

Even to those without a skincare routine, most have a passing familiarity with moisturiser.

Moisturiser is useful to all skin types but it excels in treating and preventing dry skin. It’s not uncommon for this to be the only skincare product in a man’s routine.

It does this by holding water in the outer layer of the skin (known as the Stratum Corneum) As mostorisier sits on the top layer of your skin, it also creates a barrier on your skin that protects you from the elements ( especially with a moisturiser with SPF protection in it) and harmful free radicals.

Moisturizers help to fortify the surface of the skin, bind skin cells together more effectively, and work at the surface of the skin to increase hydration.

With the moisture retained in your skin, your mug will have more of a natural glow to it. This means from the outset, you’ll be looking healthier from the head down. 

When your skin feels and looks good, you tackle your day with a higher level of confidence, knowing you look top-notch.

Remember, it’s important to match your moisturiser to your skin type. People with oily skin should look for an oil-free moisturiser, to avoid clogging your pores.

Dry skin, look for a product that will lock in moisturise. Normal skin can look for something light on the skin with natural oils and sensitive skin people can look for fragrance-free and one with a small ingredients list.

Nourish your skin

In order to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs, we need to go beyond the surface level of the skin.

Like moisturisers, serums are topical products, with hydrating properties for your skin. Unlike moisturisers though, they are designed to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin. 

Serums are made with a combination of vitamins, minerals and targeted active ingredients, such as retinol and hyaluronic acid.

Serums are usually a clear, gel-based liquid, that’s not as heavy as creams, allowing them to penetrate and hydrate the skin at a deeper level.

Depending on what’s in the serum, these vitamins and active ingredients help to support the lower layer in a variety of ways, from boosting collagen production or promoting skin cell turnover. 

Men rarely use serums in their skincare but they are a great way to boost overall skin health.

That’s why serums have a clear, gel-based liquid, that’s not as heavy as creams, allowing them to penetrate and hydrate the skin at a deeper level.



So that's a simplified skincare routine in a nutshell. Protect it from the sun, clean it, hydrate it and give it some nutrients. As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts, so sound off in the comments below.
