Beginner's Step-By-Step Skincare Routine Guide for Men

A skincare routine is just a fancy term for taking care of your skin. Most often, it involves several steps and can include hydrating and firming products like serums, facial oils and moisturisers. But skincare routines aren’t just for women, they’re exceptionally important for men too. A solid skincare routine is the foundation of good grooming and can help prevent breakouts or skin irritation. If you’ve decided to start taking proper care of your skin, you’re in the right place.

It can be overwhelming not knowing where to start or even how to start. With so many different products on the market, how do you know what is what? Dawn has been a household name in skincare since the 60s. Our moisturising body creams with options for all skin types are made with nature in mind to protect and nourish your skin to ensure you feel confident every day.

It will take some trial and error to really discover what works for your skin and what doesn’t. Most importantly, do you know your skin type? Our skin is more dynamic than we think. With it being the largest organ, we must take the best care of it.

To put it simply, dry skin often feels tight and lacks moisture. A combination skin type has oily and dry sections, usually on the T-zone of your face. Oily skin is when your skin produces more sebum than it should, building up oil throughout the day on your T-zone, resulting in clogged pores. No matter your skin type, here is a basic skincare routine for men to help you kickstart a daily ritual that will give you radiant skin and stave off visible signs of ageing.

Step 1: Cleanse

As you already know, washing your body and face every day is essential in a skincare routine. By doing this, you’re washing off dirt, excess oil and bacteria that can cause acne and outbreaks. Good hygiene soaps offer great skin protection and cleansing but avoid harsh products on your face in particular as these can strip the natural oils that help protect and hydrate your skin. Rather look for a gentle cleanser that suits your skin type and won’t dry out your skin or promote a breakout.

Step 2: Apply eye cream

An essential yet important step in our basic skincare routine for men, is to apply eye cream. If you struggle with wrinkles and bags under your eyes, eye cream help stop those lines and wrinkles from forming. Dab it gently under your eyes and allow it to soak into your skin to keep it supple.

Step 3: Moisturise

Get flawless and radiant skin by moisturising twice, daily. Dawn Men Energy Revitalizing Body Cream is formulated to be non-greasy and gives your skin the deep moisturising it needs for up to 48 hours. Especially formulated for dry skin, apply generously in the mornings and evenings for brighter skin, tighter pores and increased radiance.

Step 4: Don’t forget your SPF

The sun’s rays are no joke; they can be extremely harmful to our skin. Applying SPF not only acts as a natural moisturiser, but also prevents unwanted sun burning. Spending too much time in the sun can promote fine lines and wrinkles, making us look older than we actually are. Look for an SPF cream of minimum 30 and apply it liberally to your face and body.

There’s no better time than now to make Dawn an essential part of your skincare routine. We’ve developed Dawn Men to give twice the strength and twice the moisture.
