The cleanser

Kiehl's Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash

 

Washing your face morning and night with this cleanser will ensure your skin is free of dirt and impurities - especially important if you live in a city. Formulated with caffeine, vitamins C and E and invigorating citrus extracts, it will revitalise even the tiredest skin.

The exfoliator

If you shave you're already exfoliating your skin regularly, but using this mask will further remove dead skin cells which can cause a dull-looking complexion. Known in Korea for its mattifying properties, black charcoal is the key ingredient, keeping skin smooth and shine-free.


Erborian Black Scrub, £24

 


The moisturiser

Origins Save The Males

 

Applying a moisturiser twice a day after cleansing will keep your skin healthy and hydrated. This one is lightweight, oil-free and includes powerful antioxidants which work to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.


Origins Save The Males Moisturiser, £30

 


The treatment

Clinique For Men Maximum Hydrator Water-Gel Concentrate

 

Formulated with 10% sulphur and vitamin B3, this targeted treatment soothes and reduces the appearance of blemishes. The anti-bacterial properties of salicylic acid also help to reduce acne-causing bacteria, preventing future breakouts.


Kiehl's Blemish Control Spot Treatment, £24.50

 


The eye cream

Clarins Line Control Eye Balm

 

Concerned about the signs of ageing? Don't neglect your eyes. As one of the most delicate areas of the face, it's usually the first place to start showing fine lines. Try this cream from Clinique to combat wrinkles and restore firmness, while also brightening dark circles.


Clinique Age Defense for Eyes, £27.50

 


The mask

Niod Mud

 

A weekly mud mask treatment will help to decongest your skin, drawing out a build-up of dirt, oil and toxins, which is especially important if you suffer with blackheads. Apply to cleansed skin for a clearer complexion - you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.



Niod Flavanone Mud, £38

 


The serum

Dior Capture Youth

 

Serums contain a potent dose of ingredients targeted at specific skincare problems. If you use one, apply it after cleansing and before moisturiser. Dior's Redness Soother is perfect for sensitive, irritated skin.


Dior Capture Youth Redness Soother Serum, £75

 


The lip balm

LA MER The Lip Balm

 

Now you have your skin in check, don't neglect your lips. Start protecting them with a quick swipe of lip balm at the end of your skincare routine - you’ll thank us come winter. This formula includes marine extracts, botanicals and vitamins to soften roughness and help them to heal.


La Mer The Lip Balm, £52
