There is a myth that skincare routines are only for women but with the global climate crisis, the sun is becoming much harsher than before. For this, and many other reasons, it is now more important than ever for men to also look after their skin.
7 Great Skin Care and Grooming Products for Guys in 2020

Skincare products for men are widely available and a good skincare routine combine with a balanced diet can help with all sorts of problems, including acne, eczema, and razor burn. However, it is also important to choose skincare products that are good for the environment. Saving your skin and the planet at the same time could be easier than you think. 

Here is a list of the best skincare products for men available on the market:

Particle Cream

You’re a very busy man with too little time for personal grooming. You shave once a week – just enough to keep the lines on your beard neat – and you use a 4-in-1 product in the shower to avoid having too many complicated soaps around. If this sounds like you, here’s some great news: you don’t need to apply a different skincare product to each part of your face. There is one cream that does it all! 

Particle is a 6-in-1 cream that takes the guesswork out of skincare. It’s a simple two-step process: wash your face; apply the cream. This cream was designed with your rugged skin in mind and addresses various aspects of the skincare routine in just one lotion. 

The reason why we like Particle is because its loaded with antioxidants, moisturizing agents and active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, Sym white, Squalane Oil and more – all proven to work in studies.

Brickell

Founded in 2014, when Brickell’s creator couldn’t find high-end, all-natural products, Brickell offers a line of all-natural products for every step of men’s grooming. These organic products cover face care, body wash, shaving and beard care, shampoo, and anti-aging products. The great thing about using all-natural, organic products is that they are not only good for your skin but also the environment. 

If you work as hard as you laugh, you probably have eye wrinkles or dark circles under your eyes. Brickell Restoring Eye Balm is a great way to restore the skin around your eyes to its former glory. 

The best part is, if you’re new to skincare, this cream tells you what it is. There’s no need to make guesses about where to put it or how to use it. It’s like having a roadmap set out for you.

Oars + Alps

How close would you like to be to nature? How about wearing Alpine Caribou Moss on your face? Two women set out on a mission to find natural skincare products for their husbands because their husbands kept stealing their face creams after a long day outdoors. 

They ended up finding that this particular plant from the tundra of Northern Finland was best for their needs. The women were also lucky enough to produce a skincare product that is TSA approved and can pass through customs without problems, despite being organic. 

If ice-moss isn’t cool enough for you, then how about all the products being in a stick form, like cream-based roll-ons, to prevent mess? This means everything, including face wash, is solid rather than a liquid. These wives were extremely supportive of their husbands’ outdoor activities, but really just wanted them to remain handsome after facing the harsh elements.

Molton Brown

Any vegan can tell you that an organic, all-natural product might not be good enough. While most brands no longer test products on animals, many products still contain animal products like rennet and milk. These animal products might be good for your skin, but for a vegan, it’s an absolute abomination. 

Luckily, for all the vegans who want great-looking skin, Molton Brown Ultra-Light Bai Ji Hydrator is completely free of all animal products. It smells wonderful because of its strong plant base. 

Bai Ji is Chinese orchid and adds to the cream in two ways – it makes your skin smooth and even while also making you smell great. It is a well-known fact that men’s pores are larger and your skin tends to be oilier than women’s, so Molton Brown addresses that with its creams because they are sheen free and light on the skin. 

It is important that all skincare products, but most importantly, men’s skincare products, are light on the skin because you don’t want to feel caked in under it all. In a modern society where male skincare is still new, it is important for men to feel as natural as possible. 

Burt’s Bees

Bees are nature’s little helpers, and we are reminded almost daily of how important they are for everyday life. Bees pollinate about seventy of the top one hundred food crops, which supply about ninety percent of the world’s nutrition. Without bees, it is very likely that most food sources would die out, and so would we. 

If you need any more reason to protect these busy little creatures, Burt’s Bees uses leftover beeswax to make a number of natural skin care products, including lip balm, body wash, shaving cream, aftershave, and hand salve. The beeswax helps to lock in moisture without feeling too heavy on the skin. 

Many men don’t feel like they need anything more than a little facial lotion, but women like to have soft hands to hold and smooth lips to kiss. Using hand lotion and lip balm may be that final step into landing the woman of your dreams!

Scotch Porter

Many men forgo regular haircuts and extensive beard care. After all, isn’t the trimming of hair to stimulate growth? While long hair may be more acceptable these days, it is still not something that is taking over the men’s world. However, regular haircuts and proper beard grooming practices can save a lot of trouble and make you look better. 

Forgoing a haircut until it is absolutely necessary may not leave your hair untidy or out of place but may result in split ends, which leaves the hair looking dull and dry. Similarly, not taking good care of your beard can leave the hair looking frizzy and dry, sometimes leading to breakages. This means you leave beard hair lying around and it can be quite unattractive. 

Calvin Quallis is a barbershop owner who realized that many of his clients only receive good grooming while at his shop. So, he developed a line of hair- and beard-care products, Scotch Porter, to ensure that you can have healthy hair no matter when you see the barber. 

These products are filled with natural products and contain no harmful chemicals, so you can be sure you’re doing your skin all kinds of favors.

Malin + Goetz

Many of you might be scratching your heads, wondering if there is absolutely any product you could share with your girlfriend or wife. It may seem absurd that skin, which is made of the same cells regardless of gender and age, could differ so much. 

While it is true that men’s and women’s skin differ, some skincare companies have worked to produce a skincare product that is essentially unisex. This means you save money by only buying one product between you and your partner, and you save the environment by only having one piece of packaging to throw away at the end of its usage. 

Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask purifies and hydrates skin, and also cleanses out dirt, oil, and makeup. It also has natural fragrance and color, making it unisex in appearance and scent. It is able to clear the skin of men and women on an equally effective scale, making it suitable for all skin types and all genders. 

The only part of this product that men might find a bit too frustrating is that it needs to be applied for a full five minutes to reach full efficacy. However, putting it on as soon as you hop in the shower, then rinse it off at the very end may be the solution to this time problem.

Conclusion

Men’s grooming has progressed from zero to hero. From being just a razor and soap to 4-in-1 shower gel to a large variety of other skincare products – both eco-friendly and not – men realize just how important it is to take care of themselves. 

It goes beyond just maintaining youthful good looks, and into the realm of protecting your skin and the environment. Men’s skin is different, thicker and needs special care. Learning which products to use and when can have a dramatic impact on how you look for 2020!

So take this important step to use this knowledge to teach the next generation of men, not only how important skincare is, but how to do it effectively with the right products!
