Here's a simple skincare routine for the men out there!
Let's get into the products first!
Product 1 - Cleanser:
The primary step to begin your skincare regimen is to use a suitable pH-balanced cleanser every day. A cleanser is essential to remove surface debris and assist in the adsorption/absorption of products that need to be applied later. In general, we recommend using two different cleansers in a day as mentioned below,
Gentle cleanser (for Mornings) - To remove surface dirt, sebum and grime.
Deep cleanser (for Evenings) - For pore deep cleansing and to remove product buildup.
We have listed a few good cleansers from the Curator’s Choice for your reference,
Product 2 - Sunscreen:
The most essential and inevitable part of skincare is using sunscreen regularly. It is considered to be the primary anti-ageing tool to prevent photo-pigmentation and delay signs of ageing like wrinkles, fine lines etc.
The choice between physical and chemical sunscreens is based on a few factors like ease of use, ability to adapt to your skin type etc. Keeping this in mind, let’s have a look at our recommended SAFESCREEN range of mineral sunscreens and choose according to your need,
All the above sunscreens are formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and are highly durable in nature minimizing the need for reapplication and maximizing its eco-friendliness. If the humidity of your city is less than 85%, consider adding on a moisturizer like White Pine® Mirror Glaze or OptiMIST™ WaterBody™, under your sunscreen.
An evening or night serum/moisturizer to end your day for overnight rejuvenation of your skin.

Yeah! The products are all set now and it’s time to get into the routine!
When we ask about skincare, most men will refer to washing their face with soap as their skincare, expecting their skin routine to be as simple as possible.
Do men need a skincare routine?
Of course, yes! Though men’s facial skin is typically thicker and more rigid than women's skin due to testosterone, it tends to age faster due to constant exposure to UV rays, HEVL emitted by gadgets, pollution etc. So it becomes vital for men to follow a proper skincare routine for a solid, energized face.
In this blog, we have designed a simple yet effective DIY skincare routine for men to maintain their faces young and healthy. Let’s get into the routine!
Step 1: Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser from the above recommendations (leave on time - 30 to 60 seconds) and pat dry with a clean cloth.
Step 2: Once your face is completely dry, Apply SAFESCREEN of your choice and wait for 5-10 minutes for it to completely adsorb onto the skin. If you stay indoors, you may not need to reapply sunscreen for up to 6 hours, given the water resistance is around 6-8 hours for all SAFESCREENS except Besant. If you spend outdoors, reapply the sunscreen after 4-6 hours. If you have chosen a chemical or hybrid sunscreen, reapply sunscreen once every 3-4 hours.
Step 1: Wash your face with a deep cleanser from the above recommendations (leave on time - 30 to 60 seconds) and pat dry with a clean towel.
Step 2: Follow through with an evening serum/moisturizer from the above recommendations and leave it overnight to wake up with refreshed skin.
During the weekends (Saturday or Sunday), in the evening time, use any one of our exfoliators depending on the skin type and follow through with an evening serum of your choice.
Couple up the above men’s skincare routine with a balanced diet and good sleep routine to gradually improve the quality of your skin!
