Skin Care Essentials For Men

Exfoliating Scrubs 

When it’s time to take care of your skin, you will first need a great exfoliating scrub

Soaps and body gels are great for helping you to smell great but they do very little to get the dirt and grime from your pores.

So, an exfoliating scrub will help stimulate your skin to open up your pores so the water can help clear away any grime.

Not only that but an exfoliating scrub also helps remove dead skin cells that can cause blockages in your pores, resulting in acne. 

There are scrubs which work better for oily skin, dry skin, blackheads, sensitive skin, and more. Sea salt scrubs are very tough while rice scrubs are much softer and better suited for sensitive skin.

Scrubs that use charcoal are great for drying out oily skin, coconut scrubs help moisturize dry skin, and scrubs that use tea tree oil are antibacterial and help fight against acne. 


Cleansers are softer skin care products which help lift and clean your skin, specifically around your face.

For those who wear makeup products, cleansers help break them down and remove them  but this also includes things like sunscreen and pollution. 

Basically, a cleanser can help give your face a deep clean and is used as a type of face wash. They’re easy to use and come in tons of different forms. This includes cleansing bars, balms, waters, and oils. 

After use, they leave your face clean and fresh and bright. Some even contain antibacterial ingredients such as tea tree or argan oil, which help fight against infections and acne. So, wash your face daily with a good cleanser. 


Once your skin is scrubbed and clean, it’s time to moisturize. 

Moisturizer helps lock in hydration for your skin and reduces both dryness and excessive oiliness. Plus, they help repair your skin after a good scrub and soothes any irritation, evening your skin tone across your entire body. 

There are tons of benefits to using a moisturizer and even if you think you don’t need to use one because your skin is naturally oil, moisturizer acts as a great barrier of protection against harsh wind and UV sun rays. 

So, consider your skin type and find the right moisturizer for your skin. 

Essential Hair Products For Men


Shampoo is one of the most basic hair products you need to have (that is, if you have hair). It’s vital for cleaning your hair and removing dirt, sweat, oils, and grime to keep your scalp and hair clean and fresh.

Without it, your hair will be a greasy mess that is super itchy and unattractive. 

There are tons of ingredients that go into shampoo and some have different effects. For example, shampoos that use lemon will help make your hair shiny, while sea salt helps boost your hair’s volume and bounce.

So, think about what you want your hair to look like before buying your shampoo.

The next hair product in your hair care routine is conditioner. Even if you have short hair, you still need to condition your hair to help make your hair softer and easier to manage.

Plus, shampoos can sometimes be rough on your hair as it cleans, so using a conditioner straight after helps your hair stay strong and repair itself. 

Some conditioners are made to help improve your hair in different ways.

Some are moisturizing and help keep your scalp in great condition, others thicken your hair and others provide protein to strengthen your hair and restore elasticity. 

If you have a problem with your hair, there’s a conditioner to help fix it. 

Beard Oil 

If you have facial hair, then you will definitely need a beard oil. 

Beard oils help keep your facial hair soft and healthy. Plus, they also help keep the skin beneath your facial hair in great condition too. All you have to do is find the best oil for you. 

Beard oils are made of two types of oil (a carrier and essential oil) and each one has its own benefits. One popular oil is jojoba oil due to its similarity to the natural sebum our faces produce so it’s suitable for all kinds of skin and hair. 

Hairbrush Or Comb 

Now your hair and beard is clean, it’s time to style. 

You will need a hairbrush and/or a comb to help style your hair. They will also detangle knots and even distribute the oils in your hair.

Brushes in particular help massage your scalp, stimulating growth and oil production while combs work better for curly hair textures. So, think about which tool works best for your hair type. 

Hair Spray 

Hairspray is a great styling aid which helps freshen up your hair and maintain your hairstyle throughout the day.

There are tons of hairsprays to choose from and each one works great at locking in your styling without leaving your hair with a crispy finish. 

So, after styling your hair, lock it into place by using an effective hair spray. 


So, those are all the essentials you need to keep your grooming routine up and running. Each product included here has its oe sure you have one of each in your bathroom at all times!
