Skincare in June Men's Health Month

Posted by Skin Actives Scientific on Jun 27th 2024

There is a stigma surrounding men and skincare that needs to be discussed. Men need skincare products too, and they require as much attention as women in skincare. We all share the same skin concerns - acne, wrinkles, dry, oily, or combination skin. Both men and women suffer from these problems that affect every unique type of skin.

Male skin doesn’t work any differently or better than that of a woman, but there is a societal double standard that informs men that they don’t have to take care of themselves - that is preposterous! Our approach to skincare is all about skin health, not beauty. Skin Actives Scientific has you covered, and today we’d like to highlight a selection of products for our gentlemen to choose from.

What a Guy Wants

Skin Actives Scientific offers a variety of cleansers, serums, creams, and improved formulations of some of those best-selling serums and creams, to meet the demands of all lifestyles for men and women. More often than not, men come for our expert advice about their hair or beard, but proper skincare and grooming shouldn’t end there.

Men don’t require special care in skincare. To maintain a healthy skin barrier everybody must understand what their skin needs, as every skin type requires different attention. But there is a common ground that every routine follows.


A proper routine always starts with a good cleanser. When considering your routine, it is crucial to consider a cleanser that works well for your skin type. Whether you wash your face in the morning, night, or two times a day, here are some men’s favorites to choose from to clean the dirt and grime of the day away:

  • Gentle Cream Face Cleanser: This is a top-selling and gentle formula that nourishes and soothes for night or day cleansing. This gentle cleanser is perfect for sensitive and dry skin but can be used by all skin types. It won't strip natural oils and provides soothing and moisturizing ingredients, leaving your skin feeling soft, smooth, and hydrated.
  • Salicylic Cleanser: The Salicylic Cleanser gently exfoliates without drying the skin, making this the perfect selection for men with oily and blemish-prone skin types. A more intense cleanser that contributes to clearer pores and helps to improve overall skin texture. For a more direct approach to handling acne or blemish-prone skin, look for Skin Actives Clarifying Cream and T Zone Serum too - a great addition for men with oily skin types.

Although both cleansers effectively treat different skin types, it is important to note that when exfoliating it should be done weekly for renewed freshness to reduce any risk of overwashing or weakening your skin barrier. Combined, these two face washes complement each other effectively.


Reducing physical aging starts with reducing free radical exposure, and this is something that every man can do. You can help thwart this by applying serums to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing so the active ingredients in our formulas can be better absorbed.

  • Collagen Serum: The Collagen Serum is packed full of active ingredients to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while providing your skin with essential nutrients and antioxidants. It will also help even skin tone and texture with continued use. This multi-dimensional facial serum contains collagen peptides that are perfect for men of all ages interested in delaying, preventing or reducing multiple signs of aging while providing maximum moisture and nutrients to support overall skin health. For even more anti-aging power, try our Collagen Serum with ROS BioNet and Apocynin.
  • Vitamin A Serum: The Vitamin A Serum helps keep pores clear and keep skin renewed without adding extra oil to the skin. This water-based serum is gentle on your skin and will not cause side effects like other stronger forms of retinol because we use a mild form of Vitamin A, retinyl acetate. This active helps keep pores clean and helps remove excess oil which contributes to blemishes. We recommend using this one at night, as a retinol can cause the skin to become irritated in the sunlight.
  • Skin Soothing Serum: This serum is a game-changer for men with sensitive skin or seeking post-care relief after prolonged sun exposure or shaving. The Skin Soothing Serum features an advanced formula that includes potent beta-glucan from oat and yeast, for their skin-calming properties. A blend of active ingredients delivers a sense of relief, reducing irritation and redness, especially after shaving.

Serums are generally made up of smaller molecules that penetrate the skin and deliver a high concentration of active ingredients. This makes them the perfect addition to include in your skincare routine for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles, oxidative stress, sun damage, or nutrient-deficient skin. We also carry hair and nail serums for longer, stronger, healthier-looking hair and nails.

Creams, Oils, Moisturizers, and Sunscreen!

At this point in our routine, we can consider applying specialty creams and oils before we layer on a moisturizer, and of course top it with sunscreen (our SPF 30 Advanced Protection Sunscreen is a great option!) We offer oils for blemish-prone skin, eye creams to target the delicate skin around the eyes to target puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles, and specialized creams and moisturizers.

  • Ultra-Clarifying Blemish Oil: The versatility of oils makes them suitable for a wide range of skin types for men and women. Skin Actives emphasizes that everyone can benefit from the right oil serum. Men with oily skin can embrace the benefits of oils with the right formulations. For men with blemish-prone skin, this is a gentle spot treatment combining salicylic acid and retinol to encourage skin renewal and target imperfections, as well as Rosehip Seed Oil to help repair the skin barrier.
  • Triple Correction Eye Cream: From dark circles to wrinkles, the list of common eye concerns seems endless. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental influences contribute to these issues. Dark circles, bags, wrinkles, thinning skin, and itchy eyelids are among the top concerns that plague many individuals. But, targeted skincare solutions can help mitigate these problems effectively. 
  • Vitamin A Cream: Our Vitamin A Cream uses Retinyl Acetate which is a gentler and more stable version of vitamin A. Retinols at higher concentrations can sometimes damage skin and thin the skin barrier. So our Vitamin A Cream is just enough to promote cell turnover rate without causing sensitivity issues in most people. Skin Actives Vitamin A Cream contains our exclusive Sea Kelp Bioferment with its full array of nutrients plus polysaccharides, which will moisturize your skin and protect it from pollution and bacteria. For men 55+, we offer an improved formula, with added Apocynin and ROS BioNet. Apocynin decreases oxidative stress and promotes the synthesis of Collagen which will promote skin health and vitality. ROS BioNet is an exclusive combination of antioxidant proteins created by Skin Actives Scientific. 

TLDR; we also offer kits of all kinds to support all different skin types in a streamlined fashion:
