Men skincare products are all over the internet now. Men skincare is often more basic, lack of research and full of marketing tricks. As men don’t usually get the opportunity to get skincare and beauty education, so many commercial men skincare products are full of nasty ingredients that can cause issues done the track. Men’s skin is physiologically different from women’s skin, so forming a scientific routine requires a bit of education as sometimes stronger active ingredients are needed, and the right steps can get the skin ready to get the right amount.


What Are Some Things to Consider?


  • Hormones: For most cases, men’s predominant hormone that is produced is testosterone while women’s is oestrogen. Men’s skin can then produce more oil which means different products should be considered
  • pH Levels: Studies have shown that women typically have a higher pH level than men which is why different ingredients need to be considered.
  • Sensitivity around facial hair areas: another key difference is the production of more facial hair, which means product choosing should be more cautious to this if shaving is causing problems.


Step 1: Start With a Cleanser


The first step to our successful men’s skincare routine involves using the H4O™ RESOLVE HD WASH FOAM (FACE CLEANSER) which is an advanced foaming cleanser composed of modified water, oxygenated through the pump to activate its powerful dissolving quality. Perfect for the male complexion for oil removal and pore clarification. This can be used when washing the face day or night and is perfect for combatting the oiliness that can be a problem for many men while also possessing the right pH balance and ingredients which include amino acids, keratin and hyaluronic acid to powerfully dissolve pollutants and dirt congested within the pores without stripping the skin too dry.

Step 2: Switch Up Your Exfoliant


Lots of exfoliants on the market can be too harsh on male skin which is why it’s best to consider using the CLARÏFÍER HIGH DEFINITION HYDRO EXFOLIATOR which is just as effective at decongesting the skin and removing blackheads and whiteheads, however, this is done more gently and without scrubbing which leaves the skin less irritated. It’s super effective at getting rid of dead skin cells and keeping skin glowing while also considering irritations male skin might face through shaving.


Step 3: Tackle the Acne with Power Enzymatic Salicylic (BHA) & Azelaic Acids




Since men usually produce more testosterone, it’s not uncommon to see a larger volume of oil production in men’s skin which results in outburst of acne. An extremely effective product for dealing with this problem is the CLARÏFÍER™ ENZY HIGH DEFINITION ADVANCED PORETECH FORMULA which can clear up any outbreaks. This product targets impurities such as pore impurities and acne outbreaks and can be used up to twice a week as a method of keeping acne breakouts under control. The formula consist of enzyme compound B-A215, azelaic acid and salicylic acid which provides the maximum anti-blemish active ingredients, the skin can feel a strong sensation of irritation and even a slight burning sensation while the active enzymes are eating away the blemishes on top. However, this sensation fades away in around 60 minutes and the skin becomes new again. 


Step 4: Activate & Repair With Active Vitamins


Dermal vitamin A B and C are the most clinically studied ingredients for skin treatments around the world and 100% recommended by renowned dermatologists. Since men’s skin is typically more prone to oiliness due to the hyperactivity of the sebaceous glands, it’s important to use the Reversinol in ACTIVITA A, which is a retinoic acid derivative, providing 10x more conversion rate than normal Retinol, to accelerate cellular turnover rate in order to activate the skin's natural renewal system for rejuvenated and less blemished skin. which can help to balance this. Another perfect product to go with the A and to repair the epidermal barrier is the ACTIVITA SUPREME SKIN VITAMIN B COMPLEX that combats oily skin by reducing sebum production through vitamins B3 and calming down the skin with B5. The marine algae extract contains growth factors to strengthen the dermal immune system to kiss blemishes goodbye. To finish it off, the ACTIVITA C is a must have antioxidant for the skin for men. ACTIVITA C is studied to be effective against premature ageing and intrinsic ageing process in the skin, meaning that it can reduce signs of wrinkles and promotes the appearance of collagen to make the skin fuller especially for men over 25. ACTIVITA C contains the golden antioxidant formula of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid, but also improved the stability of Vitamin C. Rather than the traditional Ascorbic Acid that rapidly oxidises out of factory, the ACTIVITA C is laboratory made with a stable version of Vitamin C with our patented Antioxynol. Antioxynol is a potent Vitamin C derivative from 3-O-Ethylated Ascorbic Acid for the maximum antioxidant effects to reverse the signs of ageing. As seen in the apple experiment in our ACTIVITA Lab in Sydney Australia, the hydration retention level and vitality is greatly reserved due to the presence of ACTIVITA C Antioxynol. After 24 hours, the side with ACTIVITA C looks young, fresh and juicy, while the other natural side is aged significantly due to oxidation and the environmental exposure. The C then acts as a barrier of hydration while correcting blemishes to correct any signs of photo damage and even out the skin tone.


Step 5: Hyaluronic Acid


The final step in our routine is to replenish the skin using the DERMATOLOGY SCIENCE FORMULA MOLECULAR HYALURONIC ACID HYDRATOR which repairs the skin through clinical grade Hyaluronic Acid made with patented Micro Intercellular Technology for the smallest molecular sizes available for dermal absorption, mixed with macro molecular Hyaluronic Acids for barrier hydration retention, repairing the skin throughout the epidermis, allowing the dermis to re-model the growth patterns from deep within. Men’s skin can go through a lot of stress through shaving so it’s important to make sure skin is being rehydrated. This can be used either in the morning or evening and is the perfect step for encouraging healthy skin which has the right balance to keep youthfulness at its best.
