All natural skincare for men.

Facts about men’s skin:                                               

  • Men have thicker skin than women.
  • Men have 20% oilier skin than women.
  • Men have larger pores than women.
  • Men’s skin has smaller sebaceous glands.
  • Most men don’t know how to take care of their skin.

Male hormones (or androgens) are the mechanisms that cause stimulation of the sebaceous glands, which in turn produce more sebum.  This sebum causes inflammation in the hair follicles, thus causing bacteria to form.                                                                                                  Testosterone, an androgen, converts to dihydrotestosterone, (DHT) a form of male hormone, which switches on the oil glands. The oil glands are stimulated via receptor sites on the cells of the sebaceous glands thus causing breakouts.

Here’s a easy to follow skincare routine:

After cleansing with soap ,(ivory) to wash away dirt& oils, use a toner on skin that doesn’t contain alcohol.  Toners with alpha hydroxyl acids help to reduce pore size & also help to prevent ingrown hairs.        For moisture you can break open a Vitamin E capsule & rub onto face.

Shaving advice:

Shave after a warm shower, or apply a warm washcloth to face for several minutes, to soften hairs. Apply shave cream or gel so razor will glide over skin. Always shave in the direction of hair growth. Rinse afterward with lukewarm water. Finally, moisturize to hydrate skin. (alcohol free aftershaves & toner’s help to hydrate skin.

If skincare products you use burn, tingle, irritate or hurt- don’t use it!

  1. I love the DIY tips. As a male, and one who often has skin problems I’m glad I came across your site.
    I’ve tried all sorts of ‘products’ that make big claims but don’t actually deliver results.
    I like that you explain the basics of what is happening with our skin and give practical advice and tips on how to look after our skin, rather than just try to sell us some ‘miracle’ product.
    I will definitely be trying some of your DIY concoctions and I’ll be back to check this site again soon.

    Thank you for these great natural recipes for men’s skincare, this will be a great thing to make for my hubby… especially in the months when I want to do something nice for him and money is tight!

    Great looking site. I did have a bit of a problem finding where to leave a comment though. I guess I’m not used to finding it at the bottom of the page.
