Everyone has been told how important keeping a good skincare routine is. But for many men, this simple aspect that everyone should be implementing has often been looked over. For men, skincare takes a back seat to the number of other health and fitness tasks that we do in our everyday life. Skincare is also often brushed aside as being “feminine”. Or unnecessary when in reality skin is a vital organ that we must keep healthy. MadeMan has sought to change this and wants to make skincare a top priority for all men.
I personally was never taught about skincare. And thought any issues with my skin would only be a concern during my teenage years. However, I very quickly realized that this was not the case. And skin issues wouldn’t be just a temporary problem with a quick fix. Once realizing that I needed to be prioritizing my skin more. I still found myself stuck not knowing where to start or what to buy. With so many products on the market, it’s difficult to know what you actually need. And I imagine a number of men feel the exact same way. I made it my mission to learn everything I could about what I should actually be using to keep my skin healthy.
When I first got into skincare, I was overwhelmed. By the number of fragrances, over-the-top products, and chemicals there are in many of the staple skincare items marketed to men. A lot of these products can actually be way more harmful than they are helpful. So I decided to educate myself on what ingredients I should actually be using on my skin. I also became overwhelmed by all of the different products. I was told I had to use to keep my skin healthy.
However, I realized that in skincare, like in many other things, a little goes a long way. Skincare brands often market so many different products. And tell you you need every single one of them when in reality, the people with the clearest skin are often the ones with the simplest routines. That’s why I created MadeMen; I wanted to help other men take care of their skin and keep it healthy without overwhelming them with so many products that it becomes detrimental to their skin and wallets.
