Skincare For Men | Products And Tips

Ah, one of our most commonly-asked questions, "Do men need to have a skincare routine too?". The short answer is yes- everyone, regardless of gender, experiences skin problems such as dry skin, breakouts, dark spots, dullness, acne scars, etc. So just like women, men should also take care of their skin (exfoliating, cleansing, and moisturising) to avoid having skin problems.

Why men need to take care of their skin too?

Did you know that men tend to sweat more than women? This is because the testosterone hormone enhances men's sweat response. Excessive sweat, together with oil, dirt, and dead skin build-up may lead to face and body acne. So if you always workout, you may need to pay attention to these things to prevent breakouts
Men may also experience shaving issues such as razor bumps. Razor bumps happen when dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of the skin and clog up the hair follicles. The hair curls back and grows into the skin. This results in redness of the skin and bumps. Razor bumps typically happen if the person does not exfoliate the skin before shaving to loosen the pores and hair follicles. Moreover, men produce more sebum or oil than women, so they are more prone to having oily skin. Too much oil in the skin is bad as it will clog the pores, which also aggravates existing acne.

Taking care of your skin is simple!

There are many simple ways that men can do at home to keep their skin healthy. First, build a simple yet effective skin care routine that is easy to maintain. The basics are cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturising. It is important to wash face and body twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed time. This prevents the day's dirt and oil from clogging the pores.
However, washing is not enough to completely clear the pores. Men also need to exfoliate once or twice a week. Exfoliation removes dead skin build-up, dirt, and oil leaving the skin clear, smooth, soft and can prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps!
 

So, how do you exfoliate?

Exfoliating tools like the CheekyGlo Body Glove is perfect for getting a deep body exfoliation.  All you need to do is have a warm bath or shower for at least five minutes to soften the skin. Then, you can start exfoliating by making long upward and downward strokes with your palm. 

Use your CheekyGlo products once a week in the shower, to loosen all the dead skin and dirt accumulated throughout the week. If you are currently suffering from some skin conditions, CheekyGlo can treat them! Helps target Keratosis Pilaris, congested skin, acne, ingrown hairs, and more! It's easy, painless, and so satisfying to use! The best part? No extra products needed, just add water!

Do you suffer from backne? Or just love a good scrub but struggle to reach your back? Stop asking your partner to scrub it for you! Our CheekyGlo Exfoliating Back Scrubber is here to save the day! This plant-based exfoliating scrubber features two sturdy handles that allow you to target those hard-to-reach areas on your body! Featuring two fabrics, this scrubber gives you both an amazing exfoliation and a relaxing lather. 

 

Much like how we exfoliate our skin once in a while to get rid of excess impurities, it's also important to exfoliate your scalp to remove sebum and flake buildup. Have you ever used your nails to scratch your scalp and find flakes and oil stuck under your nails after? This is a sign that your scalp is congested with excess sebum, and that you should exfoliate your scalp at least once a week.

 

If you are using your nails to scratch your scalp, you need to stop right now! Using our sharp nails to itch and scratch the scalp can be extremely damaging as you are at risk of scraping and cutting the delicate scalp, which would cause inflammation and even infections! Plus, repeated or aggressive scalp-scratching can lead to damaged skin and hair follicles, that can even result in temporary hair loss, bleeding, or scabbing.

Instead of using your nails, opt for our CheekyGlo Revitalising Scalp Scrubber! Made with soft but firm silicone bristles, this ergonomic hand-held shower tool helps target dandruff, itchy scalp and dry/flaky skin by deeply cleansing your scalp and removing build-up and excess oil.

  • You can use it alone or in the shower with any shampoo or treatment.
  • The soft and firm bristles are designed to give you a relaxing scalp massage that not only feels amazing but also stimulates the scalp to encourage healthy hair growth.
  • It is suitable for all hair types, even bleached and chemically-treated hair.
  • You can use it on wet or dry hair.

And my beard?

Did you know that our Scalp Scrubber is a versatile tool and it can also be used for your beard?! Use it with a facial/beard cleanser or for distributing beard oil, balm, conditioners, shampoo, gels, waxes and pomades during styling.

Still not convinced? Here are some of the many benefits of using the scalp scrubber on beards:

  • Promotes healthy, faster, and fuller hair & beard growth.
  • Stimulates blood flow to the face & scalp, strengthens hair roots and promotes growth of healthy well-nourished hair.
  • Helps soften and condition the hair, making it more manageable.
  • Loosens dead skin, and helps cleansers work better to avoid acne.
  • Detangles the beard and relieves any itching.
