What skincare
routine should men
be following?

Men deserve to have beautiful skin, too!

Their daily routines now include taking care of their face. Creams aren't just for women. Beauty regimens aren't an exclusive claim to femininity. Women aren't the only ones with issues like wrinkles, aging, dryness of the skin, age spots, dark circles and blemishes! In 2002, Clarins was a pioneer when it created ClarinsMen, its skincare line specially formulated for men. It's a complete range of targeted products for the body and face that can be used at any age, whether it's used for washing, hygiene, beards, hair, etc.

These products meet the specific needs men have for hydration and vitality. Men's and women's skin have different requirements. Men deal with razor burn, stubble, pollution, temperature changes, hormones, etc., and are pleading for a line of expert face and body skincare that's manly and especially made for their skin.

They demand masculine beauty that includes totally healthy skincare

The stereotypical male beauty standards have changed. Barbershops are here to stay. Beards and goatees are growing like mad! Men worry about their appearance and their skin.
Gentlemen, primp and preen!

Freedom, Equality, Beauty.

01 What is the first step of skincare?

What is the first step of skincare?

Splash some water on your face in the morning!
Get washed up. Cleanse your skin to get rid of impurities and traces of pollution.

The ClarinsMen expert skincare line is there for men every day as they wash up. Better than soap, Active Face Wash cleans your face and preps it for shaving. It's a gentle cleansing foam with purifying extracts of grindelia and wintergreen that detoxify and clarify the epidermis, unclog pores, tone and protect the skin. The complexion glows with pure radiance and the skin can breathe!

Before facing the workday, waking up with a shower is a cleansing beauty-boosting move with ClarinsMen Shampoo & Shower. This product gently tones the body from head to toe. In a single step, you're washed and ready. Your body and hair are clean and energized with provitamin B5 (panthenol) in this shampoo combo.

End your shower with a splash of cold water. Your skin is clean and clear, hair is shiny and full, the body is toned and totally set to tackle your hectic day. For maximum results, dab on some ClarinsMen Antiperspirant Deo Roll-On, and be ready to endure all the meetings, stress, and unexpected events on your schedule.

Let the beautiful day begin! Even while traveling or on a business trip, skincare box sets for men, a collection of ClarinsMen Essentials products, brings vibrancy wherever you go. Choose the men’s box set that fits you the best.

02 How to deep clean your face?

How to deep clean your face?

Whatever your type of skin or age, the best way to deeply cleanse and purify your face is to exfoliate once or twice per week.

Scrub your face with ClarinsMen Exfoliating Cleanser to make your skin like new again! Get rid of dead skin cells, unclog pores, smooth the skin and imperfections, and tone it to the max with bison grass extract. This scrub is a blend of exfoliating active ingredients that cleanse and purify with soapwort and zinc gluconate extracts. It has a creamy texture that caresses the skin and hydrates in comfort and softness. Avoid the area around the eyes, the most delicate part of the face. Rinse well with water to remove all traces of the scrub and impurities.

Tip: Apply the scrub in the shower before your cleansing shampoo.

03 Shaving tips for men: shaving cream, shaving gel or shaving oil?

Shaving tips for men: shaving cream, shaving gel or shaving oil?

For many men, shaving is a fundamental part of their daily routine. It is important to properly exfoliate your skin before shaving to prevent bumps, ingrown hairs or razor burn.

For a close shave, apply ClarinsMen Smooth Shave Foaming Gel to wet skin. Its gel texture turns into a luxurious, rich lather and cushions the skin for optimal razor glide while shaving. Formulated with natural plant extracts of Organic Black Currant Bud and Bison Grass, it has a soothing and cooling action designed to prevent razor burn and is suitable for all skin and beard types - even the most sensitive.

To get a better, faster shave, ClarinsMen Shave + Beard Oil prepares the most sensitive skin and creates a barrier that protects against the razor’s edge. Busy men adore this soothing oil because it softens even the most stubborn stubble. It’s an expert skincare product that can be used alone as a shaving product, ideally on wet skin, or after ClarinsMen Smooth Shave Foaming Gel to nourish and condition your beard.

04 Do I need to apply aftershave post-shave?

Do I need to apply aftershave post-shave?

Yes, it’s crucial for men to apply aftershave after shaving to soothe skin and prevent bumps and irritation. ClarinsMen offers two soothing After Shave options depending on your skin’s needs.

To refresh and tone your skin, ClarinsMen After Shave Soothing Toner helps cool razor burn.
Apply onto dry skin immediately after shaving to reduce bumps and irritation from shaving and tighten pores.

ClarinsMen After Shave Soothing Gel has a non-greasy texture that can be used on both skin and facial hair. To use on skin, apply directly after shaving to soothe and hydrate. Alternatively, use it through your beard to soften and reduce any itchiness.

05 Which ClarinsMen moisturizer should I choose?

Which ClarinsMen moisturizer should I choose?

Formulated as a liquid, balm, or gel, they provide skincare at any age for the most sensitive skin in need of water.

Regardless of which moisturizer you apply every day; it relieves sensitive skin with complete hydration designed for an active lifestyle and seasonal changes. These super-hydrating products formulated with ClarinsMen complex help protect against stressors, the drying effect of hard water, air conditioning, inside and outside pollution. They leave a light fragrance of sweet apricot on the skin.

Super Moisture Gel provides a bracing, comforting freshness on the skin like a blast of cool air. Instantly refreshing on contact!
Super Moisture Balm intensely hydrates irritated, dried out skin. It is recommended for use during cold spells or in extreme conditions.

Clarins Research blended organic leaf of life extract, which really kickstarts the skin's natural hydration, with bison grass extract to give all the products in this skincare line soothing and energizing properties. No one has ever taken such good care of men’s skin!

06 What are the best anti-aging solutions for men?

What are the best anti-aging solutions for men?

Men's skin also shows signs of cutaneous aging.

Over time, their skin becomes less firm and elastic. Their faces are etched with wrinkles and fine lines. Like graying temples, they might add a certain charm, but the ClarinsMen line has targeted anti-wrinkle anti-aging treatments for men to apply morning and night to reduce the signs of aging.

Double Serum contains benefits for all types of skin! Finish off with a special treatment for the eye area to target puffiness, dark circles and crow's feet.
Line-Control Eye Balm brightens up and rejuvenates your eyes. They sparkle with charm.

We think you’ll be turning more than one head!

07 Why did Clarins create a new line of energizing men's skincare products?

Why did Clarins create a new line of energizing men's skincare products?

Clarins is expanding its range of products specially formulated for men's skin by developing the ClarinsMen Energy expert line to supplement moisturizers or anti-aging treatments that target the effects of aging on the face.

Men have 25% thicker skin and it's coursing with androgens. Since these cells renew faster, men's skin naturally spends more energy than women's skin.

Clarins Research demonstrated that an intense, stressful lifestyle directly impacts the mitochondria, the “powerhouse” that enables skin cells to function correctly. This impact results in a loss of radiance, signs of fatigue and premature aging of the skin.

For women’s skin, which doesn’t have the same energy requirements, Clarins made a specific treatment called Extra-Firming Energy. A blast of energy for all skin types!

08 How is this Clarins innovation going to change men's lives?

How is this Clarins innovation going to change men's lives?

By discovering why the mitochondria's energy reserves run low, Clarins Labs created skincare that increases this missing energy in skin cells to ensure they function and renew themselves like they should.

Oxidative stress due to an intense lifestyle damages the powerhouse. A packed schedule, lunch on the fly, jetlag, family life, daily stress, fatigue and lack of sleep...the next generation of expert skincare products is a bundle of energy for men.

After the age of 20, ClarinsMen Energizing Gel is a shot of energy that chases away fatigue, hydrates and instantly gives skin a healthy glow.
No more drawn-out features, dark circles and bags under the eyes! Recharge your batteries and get going!

09 What botanical breakthrough is behind this next generation of men's skincare?

What botanical breakthrough is behind this next generation of men's skincare?

The new ClarinsMen Energizing Gel and Energizing Eye Gel are enriched with G-RED Complex.

Clarins Labs blended the extract of organic red ginseng, an ultra-powerful active ingredient used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine, with organically grown bison grass and gymnema extract, a very popular herb used in Ayurveda medicine in India. Organic red ginseng helps produce energy in the skin, even under extreme lifestyle conditions. This amazing energizing and stimulating power combined with gymnema, that aids in kickstarting the synthesis of ATP (the energy molecule cells need to function properly), makes these products a cocktail of fuel for the skin.

Their anti-pollution complex protects the face from all sources of inside and outside stressors. They have an ultra-refreshing, invisible, non-greasy texture that's a pleasure to apply.
The skin is hydrated, relaxed, and strengthened. The eyes look less tired the invigorating power of organic ginseng!

10 What properties does organic red ginseng offer?

What properties does organic red ginseng offer?

Less known and used than white ginseng, the root of organic red ginseng has the same active properties but contains higher concentrations that makes it more effective.

In cosmetics, it is used for its energizing benefits. Ginseng has many different revealing names, such as flower of life, root of heaven, and root of immortality. It is an adaptogen herb, meaning it helps the body adapt and increases its resistance to all types of emotional or physical stress. Acting like a staple in traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng has the ability to boost vital energy. These invigorating properties are primarily used in pharmaceuticals.
