Not Just for the Ladies - A Guide to Healthy Skincare Routines For Men

Despite the misconception that skincare is only for women, men have unique skin that requires just as much attention and care. Men's skin is typically thicker and oilier than women’s skin. Men's skin also tends to have larger pores than women's skin. This makes men more prone to breakouts, irritation, and premature aging. In this post, we'll discuss the importance of skincare for men and provide tips for developing a healthy routine with handcrafted products from Dolphin Wood House Soaps.  

Why Skincare is Important for Men

Men's skin has specific needs that require proper care and attention. Men are more susceptible to breakouts, irritation, and scarring from acne and ingrown hairs. Men's skin is also oilier, which can result in clogged pores and further breakouts. With the right high-quality products and a good skincare routine, men can maintain healthy, glowing skin that is resilient to aging and environmental effects.

Developing a Healthy Skincare Routine


Cleansing is the foundation of any good skincare routine. Men should use a gentle, all-natural soap like Dolphin Wood House Soap's Botany Tea Soap Bar to remove dirt and oil from their skin. Made with Tea Tree Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, and Charcoal it helps prevent breakouts and irritation.


An important step in any skincare routine, exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, prevent ingrown hairs, and improve skin texture. Men should exfoliate at least once a week using a body scrub like Dolphin Wood House Soap's body scrubs. Choose a scrub that contains natural exfoliants like sugar or sea salt, and avoid harsh scrubs with plastic microbeads. A good stiff shaving brush can help with exfoliating as well.


Moisturizing is crucial for maintaining healthy, hydrated skin. Using a moisturizer after cleansing and exfoliating will keep men’s skin looking and feeling great. Dolphin Wood House Soap's lotions are a great choice for men, as they are made with high quality ingredients that won't clog pores. If you have facial hair, also consider using a beard oil to keep the hair on your face moisturized and soft.

Sun Protection

Sun damage is a leading cause of premature aging and skin cancer. It’s a good idea for men to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day. This will protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Be sure to look for products made with all-natural ingredients, so you can protect your skin without exposing it to harmful chemicals.


Shaving can be tough on the skin, but with the right products (like our Coastal Waters Shaving Bar), men can minimize irritation and ingrown hairs. Use an all-natural shaving cream or bar, like Dolphin Wood House Soap's shaving bars, which provide a smooth, close shave without irritating the skin. After shaving, consider using an aftershave lotion to soothe and hydrate the skin.

In Conclusion…

Men should prioritize skincare as much as women do. By developing a skincare routine that addresses, exfoliation, moisturization, sun protection, and shaving, men can keep their skin looking and feeling great. Using handcrafted products from Dolphin Wood House Soaps can help men achieve healthy, resilient skin without exposing themselves to harsh chemicals. With a little care and attention, men can maintain healthy, glowing skin that looks great and feels even better.
