Feeling confident in your skin is a great feeling. And given everything your skin goes through in the fast-paced world we live in, maintaining a efficient and effective skincare routine is essential. Your skincare doesn’t need to be complicated, nor time-consuming.
Designed to get the best out of men’s skin, we’ve put together a simple routine which can easily be incorporated into a busy day. Ensuring that your skin remains energised, refreshed, and protected, all in less than 5 minutes! (and the best part is, it’s suitable for all skin types)
Step 1: Cleanse Your Face Daily
To keep your skin looking it’s best, you need to cleanse. Whether you do your skincare routine in the morning, before bed, or both, always start with a cleanser or face wash. This will remove any dirt, sweat, grime, leftover products, and excess oil.
Regular cleansing is particularly important for oily, blemish prone skin as excess sebum and dirt build-up can lead to spots and enlarged pores. Cleansing before applying your moisturisers will also prepare the skin to absorb the next products you apply more effectively.
Super Facialist's Energising Face Wash is a great choice for daily cleansing. Formulated with Vitamin E bursting beads for a fresh cleansing experience and Cactus Water for added hydration, this face wash works to leave the skin feeling squeaky clean without drying it out.
Step 2: Treat with a Targeted Serum
Serums are like a supercharged juice for your skin. They are more concentrated than moisturisers and can work wonders for targeting your specific skin-care concerns such as fine lines, signs of ageing, dryness and an uneven skin tone.
Serums are a thinner texture compared to moisturisers, allowing them to absorb deeper into the skin to deliver targeted care.
Use a serum after cleansing to maximise its efficacy. The type of serum that is best suited to you will vary, based on your skin concern.
For dry skin types, seek hydrating serums containing ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid. For a boost of brightness, look out for Vitamin C on the pack. For anti-ageing and blemish-prone skin, opt for serums with Niacinamide and Retinol.
For normal/combination skin or skin showing first signs of ageing, try the all-rounder Age Defence Retinol Serum. Formulated with anti-ageing Retinol and skin-tone improving Niacinamide.

Step 3: Moisturise Twice a Day
While a serum delivers active and targeted solutions, a moisturiser’s role is to protect the skin’s outer layer by keeping its moisture locked in and helping reinforce your skin barrier.
Moisturising in the morning will keep the skin hydrated and help protect it from external environmental aggressors. Layering a moisturiser (ideally with a sun-protection SPF in it) on top of your serum is a crucial step to help prevent premature aging and protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays.
Super Facialist's SPF10 Protect Moisturiser is a great final step in your morning routine, ensuring that your skin stays nourished and guarded throughout the day.
At night is when your skin is most receptive to moisture. Whilst you sleep your skin actively repairs itself. You can support this process by moisturising every evening. Wake up to skin that looks clear & refreshed.

BONUS STEP: Level Up Your Routine with Face Scrubs
For those days when your skin needs an extra boost of freshness, you need a face scrub! Exfoliating will help by removing dead skin cells and unclogging your pores. Using a scrub regularly will promote a brighter appearance and more even texture, giving you a healthier looking complexion. Be careful not to over exfoliate by gently massaging the scrub without tugging on the skin.
The Invigorating Face Scrub by Super Facialist is a fantastic addition to your routine. This physical exfoliant combines hydrating Cactus Water and Niacinamide to help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. We recommend using twice a week after Step 1 (Energising Face Wash) to exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin.
A simple yet effective skincare routine can do wonders for your skin. So, don't wait any longer – start using this 3-step routine to get big results without a big time commitment!
