Help Your Husband Care for His Skin

Renee Rouleau's luxe mint cleansing gel

When it comes to male skin grooming, most wives need to give their man a little help. Here are my top tips to get your husband into the good habit of caring for his skin so he can put his best face forward.

Tip #1: Schedule him a facial. Trust me when I say, men LOVE facials. They love the pampering from the face, neck and shoulder massage and they enjoy feeling their skin super clean and baby soft at the end. They’ll rarely schedule this on their own, but they’ll love you for it. It makes a great gift for his birthday and, who knows, maybe he’ll request it every year.

Tip #2: Post-facial, buy him his own skincare products.
Most estheticians will recommend an easy skincare routine for a man to follow after a facial treatment, so be sure to follow their advice by purchasing the products for him to use at home. As long as the routine is easy (a face wash and moisturizer), most men should be able to commit to it. Note: While they don’t mind occasionally stealing your products to use, it’s best to get him his own products recommended exclusively for his skin type. See our nine skin types to get product suggestions. Our best-selling product for men is Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel.

Tip #3: Compliment him on his skin. We all love to hear that our efforts are working. So while I’m sure you’ll notice his skin looks better, it always great to let him know too…

Tip #4: Pick up refills of his favorite skincare products.
Obviously, when the products run out so do the results he’s getting for his skin. Not that you have to run every errand for your husband, but a guy doesn’t always feel comfortable popping into a skincare facility to buy his products so you may need to do this for him or encourage him to shop online.

Tip #5: Schedule a yearly mole check for both him (make sure you get one too). Once a year, my husband will always hear me say, “Honey, I scheduled us an appointment with a dermatologist to go get our yearly mole check together.” His response is, “Okay.” Men won’t necessarily take the time to do this on their own so scheduling a joint appointment is a great way to do it. Skin cancer is a serious business so make sure you get this appointment scheduled annually.

Bottom line: Men WILL care for their skin if doing so is made fairly easy. With your support, he can be sure to look good and feel good.

  1. I actually wasn’t sure if these products were only for females, but I am a male 19 and I’ve been using the basic skin care collection #4 for a month now. The results were fantastic for a short period of time. I had no breakouts since a week after I started using the product, but now one side of my face is smooth and toned but the other side has red bumps all over but no white head on them, but there has been no change in it and I don’t know what I should do.

    • Hi Brice, So glad you have tried my line and it is definitely for guys, too. I’m happy to hear that you have had some good results with the basics products but since you’re still getting some breakouts (and it’s always hard to know why but mainly, it’s just what your skin wants to do), I would suggest that you start working into some more products. The basics is good and it will give you results but it sounds like your skin needs more. So check out some of the other products for skin type #4 and work into those. Some of our blemish spot treatments would be good (Anti Cyst Treatment, Daytime Blemish Gel as well as Skin Correcting Serum. Also, you might want to try the AHA/BHA Deep Pore Cleanser. I know you already have the Purifying which is a nice one but try using the AHA/BHA at night and purifying in the morning. It will be more anti-bacterial for your skin.
