Fun fact: men’s skin is actually thicker than women’s making men less susceptible to aging! It naturally follows, then, that the skincare tips we provide for our male patients can look much different from our female patients.
Here are some important men’s skincare tips to keep in mind to keep your skin clear, healthy, and youthful.
Cleanse, protect, and exfoliate
While our specific product and skincare routine recommendations vary based on your individual skin needs, all men can benefit from the three basic commandments of at-home skin care: cleansing, protection, and exfoliation!
Cleanse your skin at least once a day. If you only want to do this once, do it before bed so you can get rid of environmental irritants and pollutants so they’re not on your skin overnight. Go with a cleanser that doesn’t strip away moisture but effectively cleans your skin.
Wear sun protection every day. Sun damage is the #1 cause of premature aging and, more importantly, it increases your chances of developing skin cancer. We recommend wearing an SPF of 30 or higher every day, any time of the year, whether you’re indoors or outside!
Exfoliate once a week. Exfoliating your skin helps sweep away dead skin cells and bring new, healthy ones to the surface. For men, more facial hair means it’s easier to develop ingrown hairs and other types of skin irritation. Exfoliating with a physical or chemical product once or twice a week can improve your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance!
We offer free men’s skincare and treatment consultations at our office.

👉 For gentle exfoliation to rejuvenate and refresh your skin, consider a dermaplane, chemical peel, or DiamondGlow™ Facial.
👉 To improve textural concerns like acne scars, we love to recommend microneedling or Morpheus8 RF microneedling.
👉 To greatly improve signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and more, we often recommend BBL HERO/Forever Young BBL or CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing.
