Skincare has long been considered to be too “feminine” for men to pay any attention to it. This may, in part, be down to its close association with “beauty”, instead of washing or health, which would probably appeal more to men. Skincare is more than just a part of a beauty regime; it is essential self-care that is growing in popularity.
Gifting a loved one product that they can take care of themselves with is a powerful way to show them that you care. Skincare products make excellent gifts for men just as much as they do for women, sometimes even more as, because they often don’t feel encouraged to take care of themselves in this way.
A Skincare Revolution
Modern men are realising that there is nothing “girly” about caring for your skin, and we support this movement at Kairn. Society is accepting that being concerned with your skin’s health and appearance is not a reflection on a man’s masculinity. Men deserve to be pampered too. Healthy skin is attractive to both potential romantic partners and in the business world. Skincare is as essential brushing your teeth or combing your hair. You wouldn’t go out without washing your body, so why avoid washing your face? Men’s skincare is just an extension of any typical grooming routine and can be a relaxing, enjoyable part of your day.
Skincare for men also includes beard care or post-shave care. Shaven skin can be dry and highly sensitive, so why leave it to suffer without proper oiling, moisturising or cleansing? Men deserve to feel pampered too.
Skin concerns are almost entirely genderless. We all suffer from the same ailments from time to time, such as acne, dry skin, oily spots, shaving rashes, and ageing skin. We also all deserve to treat our skin with love and care, regardless of gender. Skincare products for men often only differ in scent from skincare for women.
Skincare shopping can be incredibly overwhelming for anyone who wasn’t brought up with it. Some men approach the skincare aisle with trepidation because there are so many options and it’s hard to know where to start. There are so many varieties on offer. From cleansing and exfoliating to toning and moisturising, with so much choice sometimes it’s easier not to bother.
At Kairn, our range of skincare products is perfect for the men in your life. We believe in great quality products with universally loved scents and ingredients that will care for everyone’s skin, without complicated labels. More and more brands these days are growing their men’s skincare ranges and adapting their products to suit every customer’s needs, and we’re proud to be part of this movement.
Skincare for men, or genderless skincare, is simple. You can perfect your skin with only one or two products a day.
Gifting is a great way to help the man in your life test out the various skincare options available to them without having to filter through mountains of different products. Men’s skin is composed the same way women’s is and is divided into the same categories – dry, oily and combination. Gifting simple yet effective skincare to the men in your life is the best way to introduce them to the process and offer their skin and overall appearance a life-changing opportunity.
