MEN’S SKIN CARE: 5 REASONS TO START YOUR ROUTINE TODAY
From fear of being perceived as ‘feminine’, to being unsure where to start with a male grooming routine, many men aren’t giving their skin the care and protection it deserves. Learn five reasons why you should make men’s skin care a daily practice.
Skin care is for men, too
Do you want to start a men’s grooming routine, but you’re worried about being seen as ‘unmanly’ by others? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone. Masculine stereotypes in society condition men to think this way. But guess what? Countless men already practise male grooming daily – even if some don’t talk about it.
Our research reveals 1 in 4 men have purchased face care products – while more than 4 in 5 have used their partner’s skin care essentials.* And we want even more men to join the male grooming revolution.
When men challenge outdated stereotypes and openly celebrate male grooming as an integral part of their masculinity (instead of hiding it), it empowers others to embrace men’s skin care as well.
Men’s grooming helps boost self-esteem
Whether it’s body odour, sweat patches, breakouts, or skin that feels dry or greasy, male grooming and self-esteem are intricately linked. Our study suggests 35% of men are concerned about dark undereye circles, dull skin and other skin imperfections – and 42% worry about looking or feeling old.*
So, why not start a skin care routine that’ll leave you feeling fresh, clean and confident all day, every day? If you’re not sure what your skin needs to look and feel its best, read our essential skin care tips for men.
