Read time: 5 minutes
A skincare routine is essential for every man, no matter the age or lifestyle. With a good grooming routine, your skin will look and feel less tired, as well as reduce visible signs of ageing. Not to mention less breakouts, redness and dryness.
But building a routine can be overwhelming at first. That’s why we created our own Beard & Beard Daily Ritual Skincare Kit, taking the guesswork out and helping you create a routine that’s fast, simple and effective. Do these easy steps twice a day, morning and night, for healthier looking skin.
The entire routine should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
- Apply products on clean face
- Use in order of consistency (thin to thick)
- Use gentle massaging motions (upwards circles)
- Do morning and night for best results
STEP 1: CLEANSE
Wash your face first with a facial cleanser. This will remove excess oils, dirt and debris, giving you a fresh face to work with. Cleansing will allow any products you apply afterward to properly absorb for maximum efficacy.
Our Beard & Blade Foolproof Face Cleanser is designed to deeply cleanse your skin without irritating it. Designed for all skin types, it contains several natural ingredients to address multiple concerns. Kakadu Plum (Vitamin C) firms and brightens skin over time as it reduces the appearance of dark spots. Jojoba Beads gently buff away dead skin for a smoother skin. Native Black Tea Seed extract calms down redness and irritation. Activated Charcoal removes excess oil and unclogs pores. The result is smooth, supple and even-toned skin.
Cleansing is simple. Wet your face with warm water, then massage a jelly bean sized amount of facial cleanser into skin, avoiding the eyes. Massage your skin in circular motions for about 30 seconds, rinse off and pat dry with a face towel.
STEP 2: FACE SERUM
A serum is the most important step in your skincare routine. These are targeted treatments, containing a high concentration of active ingredients to nourish skin and fix specific concerns like ageing, wrinkles, fine lines, dryness and breakouts.
Our Beard & Blade Re-Gen Face Serum is supercharged with anti-ageing tri-peptides and natural extracts, regenerating tired skin and providing deep long-lasting hydration. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is an anti-ageing powerhouse, stimulating your skin cells and promoting them to firm, repair and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine-lines.
Meanwhile, Peach Extract and Kakadu Plum work together to even out skin tone, while being potent antioxidants that protects your skin from environmental aggressors that contribute to premature ageing.
We also added Hemp Seed Extract, Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin — all of which are humectants that bring moisture from the air into the skin. It’s like giving your skin a huge drink of water, which then plumps the look of wrinkles and fine lines for a fresher, younger looking complexion.
Another standout ingredient is NIacinamide (VItamin B), which accelerates your skin’s natural collagen production to further soften wrinkles, reduce discolorations and re-balance oily skin.
When applying your serum, use a nickel sized amount and gently massage into your face. The thin consistency penetrates quickly, so you don’t need to wait long before it dries.
STEP 3: EYE SERUM
The skin underneath your eyes is thinnest on your face, which means you need to proceed gently. Eye serums tackle signs of ageing like crow’s feet, puffiness and dark circles.
Our Beard & Blade Re-Gen Eye Serum fights against ageing, puffiness and wrinkles around the eyes. Hemp Seed Extract is rich in fatty acids, locking in moisture to plump up the look of lines. Hyaluronic Acid is able to hold 1000x its weight in water, providing the eyes with a huge dose of hydration that plumps the look of crow’s feet and smile lines. Kakadu Plum is a natural Vitamin C that brightens dark circles and puffiness to give you a fresh 8-hour sleep look.
To apply your eye serum, apply a small amount onto the tip of your ring fingers, then gently dab and pat the product around your eyes. Don’t rub in, as this will accelerate the existing signs of ageing.
STEP 4: MOISTURISE
Completing your grooming routine with a moisturiser ensures all the products you previously applied stay locked into your skin. Moisturisers protect your skin from daily stressors (air pollution, smoke etc.) that can contribute to premature ageing, while keeping skin hydrated and happy.
Our RE-GEN Moisturising Balm safeguards skin with soothing ingredients. Sweet Almond Oil is highly emollient, addressing ageing concerns with its natural dose of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is renowned to actually reverse existing signs of ageing. Along with tri-peptides, our moisturiser was created to promote elasticity and strengthen the skin barrier.
Paired with Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and Panthenol, you’ll get deep hydration that lasts all day long. These ingredients work together to prevent dryness and water loss, for a supple smooth complexion.
To use, apply a small amount onto your fingertips, spread across your skin and gently massage until absorbed.
Toning preps skin for the next products, re-balancing its pH levels for better absorption of products. It’s also helpful if you suffer from early signs of ageing, breakouts, ingrown hairs and dry skin. Toner would be your second step after cleansing, and is completely optional — only use it if your skin needs extra care.
Our Beard & Blade Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner refreshes your skin by restoring its pH levels and adding hydration. Paraben-free and hypoallergenic, the alcohol-free formulation features naturally derived ingredients that are ideal for even the most sensitive skin types.
Witch Hazel contains antioxidants that protect your skin from environmental aggressors like air pollution and smoke, all while regulating oil production to tighten pores. Aloe Vera helps to fade existing dark spots, lightly moisturising dry skin while being an antioxidant that slows down the ageing process. Bulgarin Rose is antibacterial and an anti-inflammatory, soothing breakouts and preventing new breakouts from forming.
To tone your skin, soak a cotton pad with the toner and swipe it over your face, neck and chest. Or apply a few drops into the palms of your hands and gently press it into your face.
OPTIONAL: DON’T FORGET YOUR HANDS!
Now that your face is all cared for, don’t forget your hands. They go through daily wear and tear, so it's important to hydrate and protect them.
Our Beard & Blade Hard Working Hand Cream is made for everyday use, and can be applied whenever your hands are in need of a pick-me-up. Aloe Vera soothes and hydrates, while Almond and Hemp Seed oils lock in moisture and repair damaged skin. Kakadu Plum, a natural form of Vitamin C, protects your skin against environmental aggressors while evening out skin tone. Last but not least, Sunflower Seed Oil is rich in antioxidants that fights against premature ageing, helping skin retain moisture so it’s less dry throughout the day.
To use, rub into work-weary hands whenever the day demands and feel the relief.
