Skin Care For Men: 4 Simple Steps For Your Evening Routine
Creating an effective skin care routine for can be tricky. Founder of Shakeup Cosmetics, Jake, has taken years to find the perfect regime for his skin type. Continue reading to find out the simple, easy to follow evening routine he swears by every night!
HOW DID YOU FIND A ROUTINE THAT WORKED FOR YOU?
Lots and lots of trials.
I have gone through the extremes of doing the 10 step 'K Beauty' skin care routine and in fact, that did more damage than good. I was using too much product and I didn't understand the ingredients suitable for my skin type. I was breaking out like crazy and didn't understand why because I thought I was doing everything good for my skin. I found it was too many products, sometimes less is more.
Now, I follow a simple, easy routine that leaves my skin clear and moisturised.
STEP 1: CLEANSE
The trick is to use two products to remove any products or dirt you have left on your face; whether that's makeup, BB Cream or SPF.
For the first step, I love the Oat Cleansing Balm by the Inkey List to wash my face.
Part 2 is for cleansing, I use Clinique's Anti-blemish Cleansing Gel. I find my skin reacts better to Cleansers that have Salicylic Acid in.
STEP 2: MASK
I use our You Do The Mask Activated Charcoal Clay Mask 2-3 times a week. This product really helps to unclog my pores and get rid of any dirt left in my skin. It's also a super fun product to use! You literally draw it on, leave it from 10 minutes then wash it off! It doesn't dry out my skin at all. My skin always feels fresh, clean and supple after use.

STEP 3: TREAT
My favourite Serum at the moment is the Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum by Kiehl's. You only need two or three pumps. It's amazing for tired, dull looking skin.
STEP 4: MOISTURISE
For the last step in my routine, I use our latest launch Hydrate In a Hurry to moisturise. I apply it by following an upwards motion, that's so important. It just melts into your skin, leaving it feeling instantly moisturised.
I always wake up in the morning with soft, plumped skin!
