Thanks for stopping by Skin Care For Men Explained!
This site is all about explaining in plain English everything about skin care for men that you’ve always wondered about.
Recently I was trying to buy some perfume for my wife online and came across something called ‘toner‘ for men. I had honestly never heard of this before and thought it was some kind of makeup. Once I investigated further I was amazed to find out that it was actually just a male version of one of the same types of products that women have always used to keep themselves looking great.
However when I found out about toner I was even more surprised to find out about the potential benefits that it could have for a man’s skin. And the further I dug was equally surprised to find (alongside your standard face wash and bodywash etc.) a whole range of other products that I’d never really heard that were also equally great for looking after the ‘male complexion’!
Because I work in an office and wear a suit everyday and have to give a bit of care to how I look, I was amazed that even someone like me didn’t have a clue about most of this stuff.
After making some (very) subtle enquiries around a couple of friends I was equally surprised at how little a lot of other guys also knew about most of these male skin care products. Even more interesting were some of the misconceptions just amongst my friends about what certain products (like aftershave balm) actually did.
And so from there the idea for this site was born. A place for men to go and find out stuff about their skin care, that they might not know, might have trouble finding out about elsewhere, or quite frankly, were just a little embarrassed to ask about.
Not all aspects of skin care are for every man, but hopefully everything I’ve included on this site will at least give you a way of finding out the truth about some of these products and whether they actually are worth taking a chance on…or convincing your husband/boyfriend to take a chance on 🙂 .
And just one final thing. Some of the links on this site are ‘affiliate links’. That means that if you buy a product through those links we get a bit of commission. It’s just one way I help cover the running costs of this site, so if you like something you see, buying through one of our links will help us keep on providing and expanding this site!
And of course please feel free to get in touch or leave us a comment on the website and let us know what you like, what you love, what aspects of skin care for men you’d like us to tell you more about, and most importantly, what you think we could do better.
