Personally I feel that all skincare really is unisex. I think it always has been too, but unfortunately it was always marketed towards women so much that a lot of men felt that it wasn't a 'manly' thing to use.
Fast forward however many years and now the men's skincare industry is thriving. From multi-use cleansers right through to men's makeup lines - a la A Rod!
I've been treating men in my clinic since the very beginning and now see products that are really formulated and targeted towards men. Whether that be either through branding and marketing to actually treating men's specific needs - such as ingrown hairs from shaving and also an oiler complexion.
Here are some of my favourite skincare products that can really help male skin concerns and offer multi-uses as well.
NIMUE MAN CLEANSING WASH
Nimue launched a full men's range many years ago now and the majority of my male clients really enjoy using it too.
The cleansing wash is very similar to the original Nimue Cleansing Gel, however contains extra tea tree to help with breakouts and also oiler skin types.
It's a great multi-use product as it can also be used as a shaving gel (much better for the skin than the foaming ones on the market).

THE EXFOLIATING FACE MASK
Another two in one product that takes only five minutes! It's very important for men to exfoliate their skin regularly (twice a week is perfect) to prevent ingrown hairs. Ideally a gentle physical exfoliation and chemical exfoliation provide the best result as sometimes they need something more 'active' to help with shaving.
POM POM POMADE
As much as Pom Pom Pomade is a hair oil, it can be used really well as a face and beard oil too.
The oil is great to help soften the beard on the face (as well as hair on the head!) and yet is light enough to be used as a face oil too for men with drier skin types.
To use on the face and beard, simply warm 2-3 drops of oil in your palms and massage onto the beard, face and neck after your moisturiser.
