We understand that with all of the products and brands available in men's skincare today, it's overwhelming to know where to start when if you don't a routine to follow. In the following video, Jamie talks about a great easy to follow / effective routine that you can build onto.
A simple routine consists of a cleanser (face wash) and moisturizer (lotion) twice a day. That's a good place to start. Add a toner into the mix if you have oily skin or just want your pores and skin to be extra clean. Finally, a scrub (exfoliant) should ideally be used a few times a week. We also recommend using an eye cream or gel to protect and treat the under eye area, which is much more sensitive than the rest of your face.
Check out the flow below to further understand how this simple routine would work. The under eye product would be applied before or after the moisturizer step. You moisturize your face everywhere except the under eye. Instead for the under eye area you will use the specialized under eye product.
As you may or may not know, men have oilier skin than woman. In both men and women, the T-Zone is an area of your face that is prone to being oilier than the rest. It is made up of part of your forehead just above the eye brows, the nose, chin, and a bit around the mouth.
The reason this area is oilier is because there is a greater amount of oil glands in this area. This can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and shiny skin among other possible issues. When the T-Zone is oily, but the rest of the face is normal, this is referred to as combination skin. With any skin care routine, the idea is to balance it all out and keep it under control. Everyone's skin is different, but this can be achieved by choosing the right cleanser, moisturizer, and potentially including a toner and mask in your routine.
Check out this rather humorous video below by one of our brands, Baxter of California, explaining the T-Zone.
In this MASC Minute, Jamie talks about two brand new products from Dr. Dennis Gross:

Bringing a face wash with you to the office or while you're on the go is not always the most convenient way to keep your face clean and fresh.
The Glycolic Exfoliating & Resurfacing Wipes from Anthony are a very convenient way to swipe away dirt and grime, while minimizing pores, evening out skin tone, and leaving your skin feeling clean and refreshed.
These are convenient to keep at your desk, in your gym bag, while travelling, camping, and more. Check out the video below where Jamie talks about this product:
NIOD's Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid 30% Network is one of our newest serums and it's amazing. At 30% concentration of stabilized Vitamin C, it certainly stands out from other Vitamin C serums on the market.
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants in skincare. It helps to slow down the aging process from free radical damage and boosts collagen production to improve the appearance of wrinkles.
