Okay gentlemen, it’s time to talk about your daily skincare routine! Despite the 12-step routines you may have witnessed your sister/mom/girlfriend perform, taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be complicated. Especially if you use multitasking, feel-good formulas, like MDSolarSciences, that not only help you combine essential steps but feel incredible on your skin.
The truth is, creating your own skincare routine isn’t just about having good skin. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, men are much more likely to develop melanoma than women - a discrepancy that continues to increase as they age. The main reason being? Women are more likely to have a skincare routine and also use makeup and other cosmetics that double as an SPF.
The good news is we’ve got you covered with expert advice! Check out this dermatologist-recommended super simple 3-step skincare routine for men.
Today, dermatologist Dr. Chris Tomassian is sharing his super simple 3-step skincare routine for men:
Check out what Dr. Tomassian recommends below!
STEP 1: CLEANSE
1-2 times a day
Dirt, germs, pollution, excess oil, dead skin cells - a lot builds up on your face throughout the day. If left unwashed, it can clog your pores, resulting in breakouts. Cleansing with a gentle face wash 1-2 times a day helps keep your skin clean and fresh for a healthier, more youthful appearance for longer.
STEP 2: MOISTURIZE
1-2 times a day
Moisturizing your face regularly is essential to ensure the skin stays soft, smooth and hydrated. Even better? Choosing a multitasking moisturizer that comes with added benefits and feels silky-smooth on the skin. Here are a few of our favorites:
Lightweight, ultra-hydrating and nourishing with zero white cast, this dermatologist-developed moisturizer also provides broad-spectrum protection and powerful antioxidants to help keep skin safe from the sun.
This lightweight moisturizing serum works overnight to help smooth, tone and revitalize skin. Encapsulated retinol (0.75%) helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and pores, while calming ingredients (such as chamomile, seaweed extract, caffeine, aloe and niacinamide) brighten for a radiant, fresh-faced finish.
STEP 3: PROTECT
Throughout the day, every 2 hours when in the sun
Whether you’re spending the day inside or out, your skin ALWAYS needs protection from the sun. This will help reduce your chances of developing melanoma, plus save your skin from premature aging, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Here are a few of our favorite suncare formulas for protecting and reapplying throughout the day… so creamy and soft, they don’t even feel like SPF!
