Skincare is something I take great pride in. Some people have a misconception that men shouldn’t take that much effort when taking care of their skin. However, in truth we all age whether you’re male or female. Therefore, caring for your largest organ is extremely crucial. Everyone’s skin is different (oily, dry, or combination) and everyone has a skincare routine that works for them. I’d like to share with you guys the products in my dopp kit that I use daily and that I find effective for my skin. First off, I have combination skin meaning I get dry areas but have an oily t-zone. Yes, it may seem like I use way too many products but I find these products highly effective. Whether I’m sleeping over at a friend’s place or just traveling this is what I pack and how I use these products:
I‘m a huge fan of Kiehl’s and swear by their products. I start off my morning routine with an energizing facial soap from their “Facial Fuel” line. It penetrates deep into your skin, leaving a cooling, menthol feeling, which wakes your skin off leaving it feel soft and nourished. Next, I use a facial mist by Aesop to refresh my skin followed by a no-shine hydrator by Kiehl’s that I apply on my t-zone. Finally, over it I use Kiehl’s Facial Fuel moisturizer with SPF to combat everyday’s environmental conditions.
For night time, I wash my face again with the Kiehl’s facial fuel soap. Then I tone with Dr. Hauschka’s Toner. I like to follow up with a spritz of Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir because it de-stresses my skin. Three times a week I use Kiehl’s midnight recovery serum or Jack Black’s protein booster serum which really makes my skin extremely soft in the morning. Over the serum, I use an oil free moisturizer by Baxter of California.
Extra Pick-Me-Ups: I use Clinique’s eye de-puffer everyday which adds a cooling relief to my eyes that helps when I have little to no sleep. I’m a huge fan of Jack Black’s intense lip therapy. They come in many flavors. Personally, my favorite flavor is mint. It’s super hydrating and leaves your lips soft and nourished.
