The best men’s skincare products start with learning what is best for your face. Effective skincare takes more than just washing your face with whatever soap you have lying around and hoping for the best. It’s like anything worthwhile: it takes commitment, consistency, and care, not to mention a healthy amount of experimentation till you find the right products for you.
Many guys are not aware, but your skin is different than women. The research tells us that on average, a man’s skin is roughly 25% thicker than our female. In addition, the texture of men’s faces are rougher. Men also tend to have oilier skin, that’s because the production of sebum (oil) occurs in greater amounts than females.
Lastly, if shaving is a large part of your daily routine, you know how the scraping of those blades over your skin everyday can take its toll. Sensitivity, in-grown hairs, even nicks and cuts can be a common result.
Here are 6 products to look for to help balance, soothe and improve men’s face care without overwhelming even a skin care beginner:
Men’s Cleansing Skin Care Products
Stop the madness, stop using soap! Soap will wreak havoc on your skin, throwing off the pH balance, causing dryness, irritation and possibly speed the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Men’s skincare routines rely on a good skincare cleanser that will balance the skin. This will result in your skin being not too dry, not too oily, and will soothe irritation from shaving as well as fight problems of concern - fine lines, breakouts and redness. Here are a few suggestions of cleansers to help your skin:
- Normal skin, no problems that you can think of – GLOWBIOTICS Revitalizing Cleanser, it cleanses the days dirt, oil and congestion while balancing your pH.
- Breakout prone skin, blemishes and/or excessive oiliness – GLOWBIOTICS Acne Cleanser - it helps clear the pores, control oil and reduces breakouts. It is also great for in-grown hairs.
Exfoliating Products for Men’s Skin
Although men’s skin is thicker and oilier, improper men’s skincare products can result in over scrubbing. This can cause more irritation and sometimes trigger even more oil production. That is why at GLOWBIOTICS we recommend using a microscopic exfoliator like a retinol-based product, 3 or 4 nights a week. Retinol stimulates cell turnover as well as supports collagen (to fight those fine lines). In addition, retinol is also known to combat breakouts and brighten the complexion.

Soothing Serums for Men
Men’s face care needs comfort; that daily shaving routine is the antagonist. If your skin feels sensitive, shows signs of redness and irritation after shaving, you need something to cool, soothe and relax the skin post running that razor over your skin. Check out GLOWBIOTICS Calming Restorative Treatment. This hydrating20 serum is formulated to soothe dryness, reduce itching and redness and calm skin.
Men’s Eye Cream
The eyes are the first area to show signs of aging, the skin is thinner around the eyes and daily expressions – frowning, smiling, crying (we know you do it guys) can contribute. A cream made for the eye area is important, it is lighter weight than cream for the face, reduces puffiness, dark circles and helps fight those pesky wrinkles. GLOWBIOTICS has two options to add to your daily face care routine to help with continuous eye care, Anti-Wrinkle Illuminating Eye Cream and our Soothing and Revitalizing Cream.
Essential Moisturizers for Men’s Skin
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate – both body and skin! Like the body, the skin needs hydration, to balance, feed cells and keep skin healthy. Moisturizer will not only aid in all the previously mentioned skin needs, it will help to soothe the skin. GLOWBIOTICS Gentle Probiotic Calming Lotion is perfect for men, with its anti-inflammatory ingredients it is once again perfect for post-shaving irritation.Lightweight, non-greasy and nourishing, this is the perfect addition to your skincare routine.
The Importance of SPF
This may be the most important step in any man’s skincare regimen. SPF protects us from UVA/UVB rays, thus slowing signs of aging, sun damage and pigmentation. GLOWBIOITCS has a unique formulation that is anhydrous (no water, no oil). It is never heavy, never greasy and always protects. Try our Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB and protect your skin from the sun.
