Men’s Skincare Routines – An Easy Guide To Achieve Clear Skin

Finding the right skincare routine for Men can be quite difficult when all of the advice out there is geared toward women, which can make it confusing as the different skin types of men and women have different needs.

We spoke with Sasha, one of our store managers to get her top tips on a skincare routine for men and why she always goes back to recommending our Cade Range to the many men who ask her for her skincare advice!

Hi everyone! I’m Sasha and I’ve been working with my L’Occitane family for 8 years now. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every second of it and have remained with the brand for so long because I really love their ethics, commitments and values. We support biodiversity for our planet, recycling for our future, support for our producers and investment in women’s free enterprise, so I am truly proud to be a part of this!

Whenever men come into the store asking for skincare advice, I always lead them straight to our Cade Range. Our Cade range has been specifically designed for men’s more dense and sensitive skin. Cade essential oil naturally repairs, protects and purifies the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smoothed.

Start With A Simple Daily Routine

First, Cleanse Your Skin

Cleansing is essential to keep your skin looking fresh and – most importantly – ready to absorb all the benefits of your new skincare routine. First up, get yourself a good cleanser. Now ‘good’ doesn’t mean ‘harsh’ – something that is too strong for your skin won’t benefit you AT ALL.

To make things easier our Cade Men’s Face Cleanser includes gentle chestnut and almond shell exfoliating particles and is a good all-rounder, as well as saving you time and effort having to exfoliate separately! Regular exfoliation helps to shed the dead skin cells on the surface which can block new growing hairs (causing ingrown hairs) as well as aiding a brighter complexion.

Our Cade Multi Grooming Balm Will Give You the Perfect Shave

There's nothing like the feeling of a close shave, which is why our Cade shaving creams, soaps, balms and gels are designed to help the razor glide smoothly across hair.

You may find it hard to believe, but you can get the perfect shave, with the right texture to suit your skin and lifestyle. We have a guide on how to perfect your shaving routine here.

Our Cade Multi Grooming Balm is a shaving balm for a close, smooth shave. With its innovative transparent formula, you can see exactly what you're doing, which is ideal for carefully grooming the contours along your neck and cheekbones. Super soothing, it also works as an after-shave balm to gently moisturise the skin.

Finish With A Moisturiser

Moisturising helps to reduce tightness and dryness, leaving your skin feeling nourished and refreshed. The type of moisturiser for men that you choose will depend on your skin type:

If you have normal to oily skin, try our Cade Energising Face Fluid. Light and easily absorbed, it quickly sinks in so there's no residue – just a fresh masculine scent over a base of cedar wood.

If you have mature or dry skin, try the Immortelle Precious Cream and for drier skins the Cade Revitalising Cream. Its texture is immediately absorbed to leave skin comfortable and protected without shine or stickiness.

Bonus Steps For Your Routine

If You Have: Fatigued Skin

Now for those who are looking to really boost their skin it’s highly recommended you give your skin a little bit of TLC. Our Overnight Reset Serum helps to aid your skin in that repairing process, so that you wake up looking a little more energised, fresh and rejuvenated.

How it works is by permeating the skin with natural essential oils and extracts such as acmella, marjoram and immortelle. These oils cause your skin's fibres and pores to relax, enabling your moisturiser to sink in deeper than when it is used alone. They will also activate your skin to get the circulation going and speed up cell repair, meaning when you wake up your skin will look and feel more comfortable, refreshed and recharged.

If You Have: Congested Skin

There's nothing quite so relaxing as putting on a face mask, pouring a glass of something nice and settling in front of the TV. Our Cade Purifying Face Mask has been specially designed for male skin.

It contains natural ingredients like charcoal powder to purify pores, shea butter to moisturise skin and a botanical complex of our cade wood and rosemary essential oil. It leaves skin clean, soothed and shine-free. Best of all, it only takes five minutes to work its magic.
