Skincare Routine for Men: Simple, Effective, Targeted

If you're looking for a simple but effective, targeted skincare routine you've come to the right place.

Simple, Effective Skincare Routine for Men
Men's Collection

Skincare Routine for Men is a hot topic at the moment. We all know men prefer a no fuss skincare routine that sorts out the basics and here at Brunational, we have you covered for that. But, if you're after something more comprehensive, we have a solution for that too. A Skincare routine has to be a sustainable everyday activity. In today's world, people don't have hours to spend on their skin daily so its essential that the products we use are effective, target problem areas and carry results. But that doesn't have to be a time consuming process.

Golden Rules for any Skincare Routine:


When we say Cleansing, what exactly does that mean. Basically Cleansing is giving your skin a good wash. Cleansing helps remove impurities and debris that can get lodged inside your pours, cake your skin and cause damage.

Facial Wash with Salicylic Acid

We recommend Cleansing your skin twice daily, once in the morning to freshen skin, tighten and firm your pores and wash away excess oil and skin secretions. Different Cleansers have different focusses. In our Men's Collection, our Face Wash contains Salicylic Acid which is an excellent all round active. Salicylic Acid is known for combating pimples, reducing sebaceous secretions reducing oil production, gently exfoliates, helps reduce inflammation and the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic Acid is an essential in any skincare routine.

Sun Protection:

We all know how damaging the sun can be so using a solid SPF is essential not only to protecting our skin from UV Damage.

SPF 50

UVB Rays from the sun, penetrate the surface layer of the skin and are responsible for not only sunburn but also skin cancers. UVA Rays penetrate deeper into the skin and cause premature aging and wrinkling. We recommend using a high factor SPF on exposed skin even on a cloudy day. After cleansing, apply SPF to skin and neck specifically but also on other areas that can be sun damaged. Reapply often throughout the day.

Our SPF 50 is a perfect high factor SPF and can be used daily.


Just like Cleansers, different serums target different problem areas.

Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide

Our Men's Collection Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide. Hyaluronic Acid is an incredible skin active that is known to have several benefits among them, Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent hydrator that helps skin maintain moisture levels. It also has anti-ageing properties, smoothing out skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and aids in cell regeneration. Hyaluronic Acid also promotes cell reproduction and has anti-inflammatory properties which helps with acne, razor burn and skin irritation. Hyaluronic Acid is a skin care champ and we're here for it!

Doubling down, we've also added Niacinamide which helps skin remain supple, regulates oil and combats sun damage. Not to be outdone by the Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide also fights redness, blotchiness and hyperpigmentation while reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. We recommend using a serum after every wash. Serums typically absorb into the skin quickly and leave little trace on the skin so its perfectly paired with a high factor SPF. Always use high factor SPF when using actives.


Ain't nobody got time for ashy skin!

Moisturizer with Aloe Vera and Vitamin C

That is why it is essential to include a Moisturizer in your skincare routine. Our Men's Collection Moisturizer contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin C. Aloe Vera is known for it's healing properties, cooling skin, reducing inflammation, heals burns and skin irritation. But Aloe Vera is, above all else, an exceptional hydrator and for the skin, this is essential. Ordinarily, Aloe Vera would be enough on it's own, but, just because we're a little bit extra, we've added Vitamin C. Vitamin C, like other skincare actives, is incredibly powerful. Vitamin C reduces the appearance of blemishes, blotchiness and redness, leaving skin with an overall brighter appearance. It is also beloved for it hydrating properties, pore reduction capabilities and ability to combat acne causes. Apply to skin liberally after cleansing, shaving and applying serums.


Shaving is a huge cause of skin irritation.

Shaving Foam with Witch Hazel

Shaving causes breaks in the epidermis which can cause acne, skin irritation and ingrown hairs. Our Shaving Foam contains Witch Hazel. Witch Hazel is known to promotes the growth of healthy hair but it has the added benefit of helping to calm skin down, reduce inflammation, redness and blotchiness. Witch Hazel also soothes skin irritation and itching while fighting acne.

We recommend using our Shaving Foam when shaving for not only a smooth shave but for it's aftershave properties.

With the launch of our Men's Collection, we have a special offer which is R100.00 off the entire collection, PLUS a Free Shower Caddie worth R150.00 for only R380.00 for the first 20 customers.
