The Ultimate Men's Skincare Routine: A Scientific Approach to AM and PM Care

The Ultimate Men's Skincare Routine: A Scientific Approach to AM and PM Care

Each morning, across cities across the globe, men from all walks begin their morning with a common goal — to conquer the day ahead.

And you’re expected to meet it head-on. Face-first. Without reprieve.

Wherever your day takes you, and whatever you’re expected to accomplish, there are common principles to tap into:

Confidence, discipline, routine and preparation.

They mean something different to everyone, but at Hunter Lab, we’re obsessed with advanced skin health and the confidence having healthy skin gives us each day.

So for us, these principles all start with something we have complete control over: our daily ritual.

The time we take for now, for the coming day is as important as the time we take for tomorrow. A moment of self care should mentally ground ourselves and help us put our best face forward, and that investment in our appearance is also a defence against Father time.

To navigate the vast sea of skincare advice, our first tasks is to understand the unique needs of men's skin, and our personal skin type. Click here to find out about skin types.

Hunter Lab presents a tailored skincare regimen designed for the modern man, that differentiates between morning and evening applications to optimise skin health and appearance.

Men’s Skincare Routine: AM — Protection and Preparation

Step 1: Cleanse with Charcoal Cleansing Stick

Kickstart your day by refreshing your skin with the Charcoal Cleansing Stick. Ideal for the morning, this product draws out overnight impurities and prepares your face for the day ahead.

Charcoal, known for its deep-cleaning properties, absorbs excess oil and debris without stripping the skin of its natural moisture, maintaining a balanced complexion.

Step 2: Treat with Marine Healing Essence

Post-cleansing, the Marine Healing Essence steps in as a lightweight, hydrating solution that soothes and prepares the skin for daily environmental exposure.

Its quick-absorbing formula, rich in marine extracts, reduces redness and hydrates deeply, setting a perfect canvas for further skincare application.

Step 3: Moisturise and Protect

Daily Face Fuel

This nutrient-rich moisturiser delivers essential hydration and energy to your skin. Packed with natural ingredients like Avocado and Macadamia oils, it revitalises the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and ready for the day.

Light Lotion

Protection against UV rays is crucial in preventing premature skin aging and damage. The Light Lotion acts as a 3-in-1 solution that moisturises, primes, and protects with its SPF50 formulation.

Its lightweight texture ensures a non-greasy feel while offering high-level protection. And its subtle tint leaves you with a refined yet masculine tone — a precursor to confidence that doesn’t look like makeup.

Men’s Skincare Routine: PM — Repair and Rejuvenation

Step 1: Cleanse with Lipid Vitamin Cleansing Oil

Evening cleansing plays a critical role in skin health by removing the accumulation of dirt, pollution, and makeup.

The Lipid Vitamin Cleansing Oil utilises the principle of "like dissolves like," offering a deep clean that maintains the skin's natural balance. This oil-based cleanser ensures that all impurities are gently lifted without drying out the skin.

Step 2: Exfoliate (2-3 times per week)

Incorporate the Cleansing Facial Scrub into your routine 2-3 times a week to slough away dead skin cells. Regular exfoliation promotes cell turnover, revealing a smoother and more refined complexion. It's also essential in preventing ingrown hairs and achieving an even skin texture.

Step 3: Treat with Peptide Anti-Ageing Elixir

Whether it’s your muscles, your mind, or your skin, nighttime is for rest and repair. The Peptide Anti-Ageing Elixir is formulated to support this natural process for your delicate facial skin.

With peptides and natural antioxidants, it works to stimulate collagen production, combat signs of aging, and repair skin at a cellular level.

Apply this nourishing serum to support your skin's overnight rejuvenation.

Step 4: Moisturise with Lipid Vitamin Face Oil

Seal in the benefits of your PM routine with the Lipid Vitamin Face Oil. Providing deep hydration and essential nutrients, this blend of natural oils works synergistically to brighten and hydrate the skin. Its subtly luxe formula is perfect for overnight application, allowing you to wake up to a revitalised complexion.

Additional Care For Men’s Skincare Routines: Weekly Treatments

Enhance your skincare regimen with the Charcoal Mud Mask for a once-a-week treat. Thanks to the purifying properties of charcoal and mud, this high-performance mask detoxifies, rebalances, and clarifies the skin. It's an excellent way to deep clean pores and maintain a healthy, vibrant skin tone.

Adopting a morning and evening skincare routine is essential for addressing the distinct needs of your skin at different times of the day.

By following this scientifically-backed regimen, you're not just caring for your skin; you're investing in its long-term health and vitality.
