Simple Yet Effective Skincare Routine for Men

skincare routine for MEN

Gentlemen! Don’t take your skin for granted. Your skin goes through a lot on daily basis. Hence, you need basic skincare too. Don’t worry. It isn’t complicated. Skincare is simple if it is understood and followed correctly and consistently.

The first step to this is figuring out your skin type.


  • Understanding your skin type is the first step when starting a skincare routine.
  • If your skin peels or feels flaky, you have tight pores or when you smile, your skin feels tight – then you have DRY skin.
  • If you have enlarged pores, blackheads, whiteheads, or have acne, and your skin gets oily and naturally shiny– then you have OILY skin.
  • If your skin has both of the above symptoms in different areas of your face, like your cheeks, feel dry, but nose and forehead is shiny – then you have COMBINATION skin.
  • And, if you do not have any of the above-listed symptoms, then you are god’s favourite because you have NORMAL skin.

The most effective skincare routine for men by FCL Skincare


  • Wash your face every morning and before going to bed. But, not with a SOAP, as they are way too harsh on the face.
  • Wash your face with warm water (it opens the pores), take your cleanser in the required amount and gently rub on your face for 30 seconds to 1 minute in circular motions. Wash it off with cold water to close the pores.
  • Cleansing helps remove dead skin cells and dirt and prevents your pores from getting clogged. It also leaves your face feeling fresh by removing dull skin.

  • Shedding off the dead skin cells from your face is very important. Exfoliate twice a week to remove the dead cells to deep cleanse your pores. It also smoothens your skin and makes the absorption of other skincare products better.
  • Chemical exfoliators are any day better than physical exfoliators.  AHAs are the best chemical exfoliators.
  • After cleansing, apply chemical exfoliators all around the face (avoid the eye area).   Keep it for 1 minute and then massage gently for 30 seconds on the affected area. Rinse it then.

  • Use face oil before shaving. It will add hydration to the skin and soften the beard.

  • Post taking care of your beard; the next step is toning the skin in both morning and evening routine. 
  • A toner helps maintain the pH level of your skin. Toner also helps with acne control, ingrown hair and keeps skin refreshed.
  • If your toner has spray bottle packaging, awesome. If it is in a pump bottle, take 4 to 5 drops in your palm, tap both hands together and gently pat all around your face.

  • The next step in the effective skincare routine for men is to moisturize in the morning and at night.
  • Moisturizer is required to protect your skin from dirt, dust, and pollutants in the air. It also locks the dampness/moisturizer present naturally in your skin and controls sebum production.
  • Take a small amount of your moisturizer in your palm and gently massage into your skin till it is moderately retained.
  • If your skin type is normal to oily, try a gel-based moisturizer. And if your skin is dry, use a hydrating lotion or a moisturizer.
  • In the morning, do not forget to apply sunscreen on your face and body parts that are exposed to sunlight. Skin cancer really loves humans and also, we all want to look young for a long time. Apply sunscreen for at least 30 minutes before sun exposure so that the cream gets absorbed completely and is ready to perform its job.
