Until recently, men were not overly concerned with issues considered exclusively feminine such as skincare. Fortunately, things have changed with time, and today they are more and more interested in their appearance, including skin and hair care. The truth is that a daily skin routine can lead to a healthy, attractive complexion for both women and men alike. Now we have products designed especially for men that can make great gifts (in case you were looking for something to surprise your significant other, father, son, or any other important man in your life).

It is a well-known fact that a man’s skin is different – stronger, more resistant to the damaging influences of the external factors, and also producing more sebum. It is also true that men’s skin tends to age slower than women’s skin; the wrinkles become visible often no sooner than 35 years old. However, with the natural aging process, the skin loses the capacity to retain hydration, and the wrinkles become more and more apparent. A man’s skin produces twice as much sebum; hence, it requires products with a non-oily texture. If you have caught your man using your creams (for face or hands), it means he is aware he needs a bit of help to keep his skin in the best condition. However, your cosmetic products might not be the best solution for his skin. 

Cleansing the skin

If you are looking for skincare gifts for him under $50, you should know that the best way to start a routine is by introducing him to a daily skin wash. Cleansing is essential for a flawless complexion. Skin issues such as blackheads can be caused by impurities that accumulate in the pores. Cleaning the face daily with a suitable product can eliminate the impurities and leave the skin hydrated. Cleansing gels can be used in the morning and evening, and it takes only a few minutes to get a clean, glowing face. He needs to apply a small amount of product on the face and massage it with circular movements. Rinse well. 

Here are some cleansing gels under $50 that could make an excellent gift for him:

A non-aggressive foaming gel to help the men in your life get rid of the toxins and excess sebum. Fresh and invigorating, it revives the skin leaving it looking clean and flawless. Ideal for daily use, even for men with sensitive skin.

Exfoliating the skin

Even a man’s face needs exfoliation from time to time to eliminate the dead skin cells. More than this, exfoliation helps cleaning the deep layers of the skin. Exfoliating products contain fine particles that are essential to smooth the skin and clean the pores. But there is another benefit for your man if he starts using exfoliating products: no more ingrown hairs on the face! 

Here is an idea for a gift for him under $50:
