On average, men spend about 7 minutes a day caring for their face. Therefore, the application of skin care products should be as simple, fast and effective as possible. However, men’s skin also shows some of the same problems as women’s skin. Men also have to deal with sensitive, acneic, impure and aging skin. However, there are gender-specific differences in the structure and function of the skin which should be considered when applying skin care products.
What are the differences?
The characteristics of male skin are mainly determined by the hormone testosterone. Among other things, this hormone is responsible for increased sebum production. Men have more sebaceous glands, which are generally more active, which is why their skin often appears oilier and shinier and is prone to impurities and acne. The high fat content is also responsible for the fact that men are less prone to dry skin than women.
Men’s skin also contains a higher proportion of collagen and elastin, making men’s skin around 20 percent thicker than women’s. This is why products with light textures and emulsions are particularly suitable for the care of men’s skin. The way men’s skin ages also differs from the way women’s skin ages. The collagen content of men’s skin decreases continuously, while women’s skin is only affected later (especially after the menopause). But then it becomes significantly thinner and the effects are more pronounced than with male skin. Although wrinkles appear later in men than in women, when they appear they are usually already very pronounced.
Regular shaving puts a lot of strain on men’s skin. Similar to a peeling, the top layer of skin is removed with every shave. Dull razors also play a major role in making men’s skin more and more sensitive.
THE RIGHT CARE
The basis of every care routine is cleaning. To thoroughly remove sebum and impurities from the skin, a washing gel is particularly suitable here. The PURIFYING CLEANSING GEL is ideally suited for refreshing skin cleansing without destroying the skin’s acid mantle and has a slightly anti-inflammatory effect. At the same time the product can also be used for wet shaving.
It is best to moisten the face with lukewarm water before shaving. This will soften the whiskers and stubble and make shaving easier. In addition, the shaving gel (or cleansing gel) can develop its effect more effectively. As an alternative to the shaving gel, our Purifying Cleansing Gel is a wonderful way to prepare the skin and beard for shaving. Apply the Cleansing Gel with your hands or preferably on a wet natural sea sponge – this foams the product slightly – and then spread it over the affected areas. Take a moment to massage in the cleansing gel well. This stimulates the blood circulation of the dermis. After shaving, rinse thoroughly and enjoy the refreshing effect.
Make sure that the razor blade is not dull and always shave in the same direction as your hair growth. After shaving, the skin should be sufficiently moisturised.
INTENSIVE ACTIVE INGREDIENT CARE
The often irritated and inflammatory skin after shaving can be wonderfully cared for with the Extra Sensitive Calming Serum. The Power Serum with protective, astringent and soothing active ingredients gently cares for the skin, can prevent irritation and restore the skin to its natural balance. The Deep Purifying Serum supports the natural skin cleansing and clarifies deep down. Rich in soothing and cleansing active plant ingredients, it ensures an even and clear complexion and brings the rather large-pored male skin into balance.

BEARD CARE RITUAL
The daily beard care is a ritual that plays a central role in the male grooming routine. Here too, the PURIFYING CLEANSING GEL is ideally suited as a beard shampoo and at the same time as a basis for contour care when wet shaving.
The central element of beard care is the beard oil. Here we recommend our highly concentrated facial oil AGE REPAIR MIRACLE DROPS. The selective active ingredients, antioxidants and moisturizing agents give the beard an irresistible glow. In addition, the oil soothes the facial skin under the beard, which can especially reduce the annoying itching during the growth phase of the beard completely or at least significantly. In addition, it supplies the beard hairs with important nutrients and provides them and the skin with moisture and refatting oils, so that they are optimally protected from drying out. Selected essential oils spray a stimulating scent and promise a pleasant feeling of perfect beard and skin care. Those who find the precious oil too precious for beard care can fall back on natural, fatty oils such as argan oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, grape seed oil or coconut oil.
To use the Beard Oil, put about five to eight drops of the Age Repair Miracle Drops in the palms of your hands, rub them in and massage the oil extensively into the beard and facial skin. Finally, go over it again with the beard brush – and that’s it.
ADVANCED CARE FOR MEN’S SKIN
BALANCING FACIAL TONER
As a link between cleansing and moisturising, a facial tonic serves to moisturise and soothe the skin after shaving. It also revitalises the skin surface and restores the skin’s natural pH value after shaving. The light texture provides the skin with important nutrients and at the same time can improve the effectiveness of subsequent care products. Our Deep Purifying Toner deeply purifies the skin. For skin that tends to be irritated, we recommend the use of Daily Balancing Toner.
The eye area of men also needs special care. Our intensively moisturizing and vitalizing Daily Vitalizing Eye Treatment with lightly draining and skin-caring active ingredients protects and cares for the delicate skin around the eyes in a particularly gentle way and provides it with important nutrients.
The aging process manifests itself most clearly on our hands. Our DAILY CELLULAR PROTECTION HAND CREAM SPF 10 is a moisturising and nourishing hand cream with sun protection factor, which gives especially exposed hands a soft and smooth skin feeling. Because men’s hands also need good care from time to time.

Sun protection is essential for healthy and youthful skin. Our YOUR DAILY HIGH PROTECTION SUN CREAM SPF30 is the ideal sun protection for summer and winter. Its innovative UVA and UVB filters and the active ingredients from butterfly lilac and sea buckthorn provide intensive sun protection and extra moisture. After all, even men’s skin is not immune to the harmful effects of sunlight on our skin.
A weekly peeling intensively frees the skin from excess oil, sebum and impurities and lets it breathe again. Exfoliating Facial Scrub is a mechanical face scrub with fine jojoba seeds that gently remove dead skin cells and free the skin from blocked pores. Astringent and soothing active ingredients ensure that the skin is deeply cleansed and refined.
