The Simplest Skincare Routine for Men

A splash of water and cursory glance at the bar of soap just won’t cut it.



Do you find yourself staring at your lady’s bathroom space and wondering, what is all this stuff?? Toners, emulsifiers, serums, masks… The world of skincare can be a mystery, which is probably why you’ve been ignoring it your whole life. But fear not! You only need a quick skincare routine to ensure your skin stays looking good. Here’s how to save your face in three simple steps:

STEP 1: Cleanse morning and evening

Wash your face! Sweat, grime, that burrito you had for lunch… it all adds up on your skin and can lead to breakouts. Cleanse your skin when you wake up and before going to bed.

Company Daily Face Wash – 100 ml

STEP 2: Exfoliate twice a week

Every once in a while – make it twice a week so it’s easier to remember – you need to scrub on down and get that skin even cleaner and smoother. Exfoliation gets rid of dead skin cells, leaving your skin healthier and smoother and helping prevent breakouts.

Soft Clay Rubber 60ml

aed 133.84 Lixirskin

Company Daily Face Scrub – 100 ml

STEP 3: Moisturise

After cleansing and scrubbing, your skin needs a layer to hydrate and protect – enter moisturiser. This is where your skin can get vitamins and nutrients, helping it stay in top condition. Moisturiser can also help shield your skin from environmental aggressors like pollution. Use a lightweight gel for summer and top it off with sunscreen.
