men's grooming routine for skin and hair

Never has men's grooming been such an essential part of the modern man's daily routine. Men's grooming products are also more accessible then ever, which means there's little excuse to not have a good grooming routine. 

Why is a grooming routine so important, you may ask? Well, like anything in life, the better you take care of something, the better condition it will be in.  Skin, body and hair care should be an essential part of your daily routine, for overall heathier and cleaner skin and hair. 

Here, we go through a simple, yet effective men's grooming routine for the skin, body and hair... 

Skincare for men

Bearskin is an Australian skincare company that creates innovative natural and ethical products. We'd recommend this range because it covers the three main aspects of good skincare; Moisturise, Wash, Scrub. Your skincare routine should consist of these three main aspects, for healthier, more nourished, and cleaner skin.

Moisturise: Ideally, you should use a moisturiser on your face, daily. Some men moisturise twice a day, but once should suffice. Each evening, before you go to bed, apply a moisturiser around your face, paying close attention to the cheeks, around the eyes, and along the forehead. A consistent moisturising routine will help keep your skin hydrated, reduce the chances of skin irritations, as well as minimise fine lines and wrinkles.

Wash: Washing your skin with a good face wash should also be done daily. Using a face wash daily (with cold water) will help clear up any build up for healthier and smoother skin, keep your skin hydrated, soft, supple, and youthful-looking, as well as help prevent outbreaks of spots.

Scrub: A face scrub is always recommend, but they should only be used 1-2 times a week. Using a face scrub improves skin tone and texture, gets rid of dead skin cells, dirt and oil build up on the surface of your skin, it unclogs pores, helps fade spots and scars, as well as fight signs of ageing.

Hair care for men

VitaMan is an Australian company that creates a good selection of natural and organic skin and hair products for men. The Men's Hair Treatment Kit is worth trying, because it covers the three key areas of the hair; Shampooing, conditioning and moisturising.  

Vitaman hair care for men

The shampoo contains natural plant extracts that help improve scalp problems. It also cleanses the scalp, providing anti-inflammatory benefits. The conditioner smoothens and detangles the hair, which helps reduce breakage and split ends. The leave-in moisturiser provides extra moisture to the hair, protects it from damage, and helps detangle the strands. 

If you're serious about having great hair, then be sure to use these three hair care products for optimal results. Use the shampoo 2-3 times a week, the conditioner just once a week, and the leave-in moisturiser around 3-4 times every week. 

Hair loss

If, like 65% of men, you are experiencing hair loss, then fear not, because although there isn't a cure, there are ways you can treat it, and minimise the shedding. The best hair loss treatments (outside of expensive hair surgery procedures) for men are:

  1. Multi-vitamin hair supplements
  2. Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF)
  3. Ketoconazole shampoo
  4. Hair laser therapy
  5. Micro-needling
  6. Medically approved prescription treatments
