Happy New Year! I have returned to my home base! I know I have been gone for a while; however, I started a YouTube channel called Bougie Babe Ken. Currently, my time is populated with school, work, and YouTube. But my fingers were craving to write another blog post for my original babes. I’ve missed writing my posts and helping brighten your day. Many of the support I get from my babes help me stay positive. Sorry I left, but this is the year of consistency. I will be uploading a blog post or a video more frequently.
Today, I will be discussing some highly rated skincare products for men. I have noticed there are more men starting a skincare routine and indulging in self-care. Self-care is an important practice, and everyone should prioritize their health – including men. Self-care is more than getting your nails done or having a glass of wine; it is taking the time to focus on the things that benefit you and make you happy. Men are meant to be the provider and don’t focus on positive outlets that can make them happy. Modern men are forgoing that ideology and investing in themselves. Luckily, my favorite topic – skincare – is a popular self-care practice that people invest in. Here are some great skincare products that men should consider investing in.
- Jack Black Pure Daily Facial Cleanser – $19
The first step in anyone’s skincare routine is to wash your face. Washing your face twice daily help keep the skin clean for all dirt and bacteria. The Jack Black Pure Daily Facial Cleanser is a great cleanser to do just that job. The 2-in-1 cleanser and toner removes oil and dirt while hydrating the skin for a fresh look. Key ingredients such as Aloe leaf help soothe and reduce redness, organic rosemary and sage leaf provides antibacterial benefits, and with hazel tones and cleanses the skin. Your skin will look great and fresh after using the cleanser.
- TruSkin Vitamin C Serum for Face – $20
Vitamin C is one of the top rated ingredients in skincare. Vitamin C brightens the skin, reduces aging, and evens out dark spots. Vitamin C helps the skin look fresh and rejuvenated and the TruSkin Vitamin C Serum is a perfect example. The product is plant based and synthetic additives free. The serum diminishes fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles. The serum also contains jojoba oil, witch hazel, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E, which are known to hydrate the skin, fight inflammation, and tighten the skin. One of Amazon’s highest rated serums, the TruSkin serum is a great way to keep your skin looking bright.

The eyes are a sensitive and delicate area and should be treated with care. The Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer is cool on contact and infused with caffeine and artic root which minimizes puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. The roll on applicator ensures the product is smoothly and evenly distributed. No more worrying about how tired you look. The eye cream is a great way to moisturize the skin around the eyes without doubt.

Exfoliating is a good way to rid your body of dead skin; however, exfoliants can be too harsh and leave the skin scarred. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant uses a rice based powder that is gentle enough to use daily and scrub the dead skin away. The exfoliate is formulated with salicylic acid which clears clogged pores, draws out excess oil, promotes cell turn over, and refines skin; colloidal oatmeal thar attracts moisture to skin and locks it in by forming a protective barrier; and ginkgo, a cleanser that protects the skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines. Together the ingredients combine to preserve the new layer of supply skin.

Although many don’t consider beards apart of skincare, it is still an important part of self-care. Beard oils and creams aides in hair growth and moisturizes the hair. The BreedLove Beauty Beard Butter uses Shea Butter, Mango butter, Tea Tree Oil, and many more plant based ingredients. The butter is formulated with all natural and essential oils to soften and add a healthy sheen to beards and mustaches, while gently moisturizing the skin beneath.
