The Ultimate Guide to Men’s Skin Care


Gone are the days where men miraculously always have a clear complexion by using nothing more than an old bar of soap on their face, or cleansing with just water!

If you’re having issues with your skin looking dull, dry and aged and you’re looking for a way to keep your skin looking fresh & feeling clean without what seems like the hundreds of products that females use- follow the steps below for a simple and full-proof skincare regime.


Step 1: Cleanse- twice a day!

It might seem like common sense, but it’s important that you’re cleansing regularly, and with proper products. The male complexion tends to be more prone to oils, dirt and by nature have a coarser texture and larger pores opposed to females, particularly from shaving the face, making the skin more prone to acne and ingrown hairs.

When you cleanse, make sure to massage the product into your skin for 1-2 minutes instead of just quickly washing off the product, taking it all the way up into the hairline & down onto the chin to make sure you aren’t missing out on any areas where dirt has built up.

The GERnetic Soap Gel is an effective, easy product that cleanses the skin of any pollutants and dirt, using a smooth and effective formula to cleanse, purifies and disinfects. Best of all its cleanses and exfoliates through the product, so it’s a fast and easy process. Formulated with microbeads, marine sediments, and minerals, it’s a great solution for those who need to exfoliate their skin but struggle with sensitivity, dryness, and irritation.

Step 2: Moisturise & Repair your skin.

After a long day, it’s important to nourish your skin with a vitamin rich and rejuvenating moisturiser to strengthen the skins cells and reverse the effects of pollutants. If your skin is oilier, opt for a more lightweight gel formulation, such as the L’Homme 3 in 1 50ml.

It energises, refreshes and boosts radiance within the skin through just the one product! This will help battle fatigue in the skin in the signs of dark circles, dull complexion, dryness, loss of tone, while regulating sebum to avoid oil build up and acne.

If your skin is drier, opt for a more cream based formula such as the GERnetic Hydra Men’s cream which is full of vitamins and nutrients to revitalise and repair cells and actively improve your skins elasticity, texture, and reduce fine lines. The creamy formula ensures the hydration of the deeper layers of the skin, encouraging the binding of the water molecules, allowing basal cells to preserve their moisture and lead to an instant glow.

Step 3: Tackle that acne

If you have skin that’s more acne prone and oily in nature, the Gernetic Anti-Acne cream is for you. By reducing seborrhoea and reducing congestion it deactivates the formation of pimples, blackheads, and dilated pores. Simply apply a small amount to problem areas after cleansing & moisturising your skin.

Step 4: SPF- all day- every day!

When you’re outdoors, whether you’re working, playing sports, or just out and about, it’s important to always be wearing an SPF to protect your skin against those damaging rays. And yes, this includes cloudy/rainy days! Shielding your skin protects against sunburn, hyperpigmentation, and unnecessary fast aging of the skin.

It’s best to apply a good layer of sunscreen to your face & neck in the morning and re-apply twice during the day to replace the protection while sweating or swimming. Try our Medik8 Physical Sunscreen SPF 30, which is lightweight, long wearing and provides broad broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB exposure. It’s creamy and light formula means you won’t even notice it’s on!
