Skincare Routine
for Men

A low-maintenance skincare routine for men is essential for good skin. Men deserve to have beautiful skin too!

Skincare routines are not just for women anymore, and self-care is not an exclusive female privilege. No matter your gender, we all experience issues like wrinkles, aging and dryness of the skin, the appearance of age spots, dark circles, puffiness, and blemishes! In 2002, we were pioneers when we created ClarinsMen, a range of skincare specially formulated for men. The complete range of targeted products for the body and face that can be used at any age.

It's for washing, hygiene, beards and hair. These products meet the specific needs that men have for hydration and vitality. Men deal with razor burn and stubble requires a range of expert face and body skincare that's specially made for their skin.

Read on for our tips on creating an effective yet simple men’s skincare routine.

01 Skin hygiene tips for men

Skin hygiene tips for men

Cleanse your skin to get rid of impurities and traces of pollution.

Our ClarinsMen cleansers are designed to help men cleanse their skin every day. Better than soap, ClarinsMen Active Face Wash cleans your face and prepares it for shaving. It's a gentle cleansing foam with the purifying extracts of grindelia and checkerberry, which detoxifies and clarifies the epidermis, unclogs pores, and tones and protects the skin.

Before facing the working day, wake up with a shower using ClarinsMen Shampoo & Shower. This cleansing product gently invigorates the body from head to toe. In a single step, you're washed and ready.

Your body and hair are clean and energised with provitamin B5 (panthenol) in this shampoo and shower combo. Finish your shower with a splash of cold water.

02 How to deep clean your face

How to deep clean your face

Whatever your skin type or age, the best way to deeply cleanse and purify your face is to exfoliate once or twice a week.

Scrub your face with ClarinsMen Exfoliating Cleanser to make your skin fresh, soft and clean! This scrub is a blend of exfoliating active ingredients that cleanse and purify with soapwort and zinc gluconate extracts. The creamy texture caresses the skin with hydrating comfort and softness. Avoid the area around the eyes, the most delicate part of the face. Rinse thoroughly with water to remove all traces of the scrub and impurities.

Tip: apply the scrub in the shower after washing your hair to allow the steam to open your pores.

03 Shaving tips for men

Shaving tips for men

Shaving is a fundamental part of some men’s daily routine.

As long as you properly exfoliate your skin beforehand, it won’t be as susceptible to bumps or ingrown hairs caused by shaving.

It’s an expert skincare product used, alone like a shaving product, ideally on wet skin, or in combination with ClarinsMen After Shave Soother. Apply this foaming gel to wet skin, on areas that will be shaved. The soothing and cooling action is formulated to prevent razor burn and recommended for sensitive skin. Grindelia extract makes this shaving product gentle on the skin. Its thick creamy foam prevents irritation and gives you a close shave on the first stroke with flawless glide over your skin. Stubble is gently eliminated as the razor moves over it.

It contains the invigorating ClarinsMen complex with bison grass extract that makes skin stand up to shaving.

04 Do I need aftershave?

Do I need aftershave?

Yes, it is crucial for men to apply aftershave after shaving to soothe skin and avoid razor burn.

After shaving, thoroughly rinse with cool water to invigorate your skin and immediately apply ClarinsMen After Shave Energizer to reduce irritation from shaving.

05 Which ClarinsMen moisturiser should I choose?

Which ClarinsMen moisturiser should I choose?

We recommend choosing a moisturiser based on your preferred consistency.

Formulated as a liquid, balm or gel, ClarinsMen moisturisers provide hydration at any age for even the most sensitive skin in need of nourishment. Regardless of which moisturiser you apply every day, it relieves skin with complete hydration, designed for an active lifestyle and seasonal changes.

ClarinsMen Super Moisture Gel provides crisp, comforting freshness on the skin like a blast of cool air. Instantly refreshing upon application! ClarinsMen Super Moisture Lotion is the only one with SPF20 UV protection. This moisturiser is for men whose faces are exposed to the sun. ClarinsMen Super Moisture Balm intensely hydrates irritated and dehydrated skin, recommended for use during cold snaps or in extreme conditions.

Clarins Research blended organic leaf of life extract, which really kick-starts the skin's natural hydration, with bison grass extract to give all the products in this line of moisturisers soothing and energising properties.
