Skin Care for Men: Yes! We Are Different


Did you know that as a male, your skin is fundamentally different from a woman’s? It’s tougher, thicker and more prone to oiliness. Add stress, a night out with the boys, sun exposure, wind, pollution and shaving to the mix and you can see how your face and body are constantly taking a beating. The problem? You use any old body lotion or cream. No wonder you have dry skin only a few hours after applying it.
Skin Care for Men: Yes! We Are Different
It’s equally important to note that the skin on your face is structurally different to the skin on your body, so instead of just grabbing any random skin care or body product during the morning rush, you need to adopt a male grooming routine with skin care products that are tailor-made for your face and body.

It’s not entirely necessary to have every skincare product on the market nor is it mandatory to follow a fussy and time-consuming skincare routine. Just use the right products, and the right amount of products for your skin. That’s it, simple and easy! Ok, there is one more thing that we’d like to point out … well, three things actually.
  • 1. Know your skin type
    Do you have uneven skin tone, are you prone to ingrown hairs or do you occasionally break out in spots? Use skincare products that cater specifically to your skin’s needs. For example, use pigmentation targeting products for uneven skin tone, or oil-free moisturisers to prevent skin breakouts.
  • 2. Wash your face with the right stuff
    Every time that you get into the shower and wash your face with body soap, you’re removing that protective layer of natural oil that keeps the moisture inside – something that a specially formulated face cleanser will not do. We don’t like to admit to being sensitive, but it’s time to face it; the delicate skin on our faces is not the same as the skin on our body. Be kind to your face with products like the Vaseline MENface FACIAL SCRUB DEEP CLEANSE face scrub. It’s gentle enough for daily use on your face.
  • 3. No moisturiser is created equal
    Because the skin on your body does not produce as much natural oil as the skin on your face, you’ll need a body moisturiser that is richer and more hydrating. Vaseline MENbody LOTIONSandCREAMS stand out from the rest as they contain the unique Stratys-3™ technology that is specifically formulated to deeply hydrate and soothe your skin. It contains three different ingredients that allow moisture to deeply absorb into all three layers of the skin: the top, core and deeper layers.
Feeling pressurised? Don’t! There’s no need to feel self-conscious about your stash of skincare products. At the end of the day it’s all about being comfortable and confident in your own skin. With Vaseline MEN, the idea is simple: Groom a little, gain a lot!
