I received a lot of direct messages about products or service recommendations when it comes to men. The most recent was about skincare products for men from an acquaintance. He is really into making sure that his skin looks as good as he feels and was looking to try something different. As a previous barber and girlfriend of some of the laziest to some of the most high maintenance men, here are my recommendations.

Kiehl's Facial Fueling Energizing Tonic

Tonics are what toners are for men. It is is used to bring the skin back to its normal pH level after we have manipulated it. This toner is packed with Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Please note that every product that I am recommending will have more conscious based ingredients. Vitamin C is crucial for the skin specifically the face. When you are tugging on your skin and stretching it to get a closer shave then you are increasing your chances of creating wrinkles or fine lines. By using this toner after shaving, you are adding back in the nutrients, radiance to the skin, and decreasing the rate of aging skin.

Maple Holistics Assuage Beard Oil
$10



This Assuage Beard Oil consists of Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Avacado Oll, and many other conscious ingredients. The most beneficial is the Jojoba Oil due to its antibacterial properties. This oil helps control bacterial growth in the hair follicle which is crucial considering the pores are open when this product is applied. This oil also has the capability to soothe irritated skin which can happen when running a sharp blade across the face.

The sun is beautiful but the way that those UV rays are hitting the skin thanks to the ozone layer constantly disappearing, you have to PROTECT YOU SKIN. Like many of Kiehl's products, there are many benefits of using natural-baed ingredients. Like the Tonic, this contains VitaminC, caffeine, and Vitamin E for SPF protection. According to Kiehl's website, "Naturally occurring in plant leaves and skin, Vitamin E helps to neutralize skin-damaging free radicals and has soothing properties moisturizing properties".

Skincare Cleaning and Treatment Application
  1. Cleanse the skin thoroughly
  2. Apply a dime size amount to the beard
  3. Shave with the grain (or against the grain if you dare to get that close)
  4. Rinse with cold water (to close the pores)
  5. Pat dry
  6. Mist or apply with a cotton ball a small amount of the Tonic
  7. Massage a pea-size amount of beard oil on the beard and skin underneath
  8. Apply a nickel-size amount of facial moisturizer
  9. Apply a nickel-size amount of SPF 50+

The entire goal of investing in great skincare products is not only to make sure that bae don't complain that you are being lazy but for your skin itself. Simply follow the cleaning method I listed above, always protect your skin with SPF and send me an email if you have any questions.
