Sea Kelp Skincare for Men - Top 5 Must-Have Products (With Tips!)


Skincare for men can vary. In most cases, men want products that are simple, clean, and just work. No mess, no fuss, and no instructions. Here are 5 must-have products that will keep every mans skin nourished and smelling great:

1. Clean

Men get dirty. It’s science. And dirty skin = aging skin. Most men’s body wash that you’ll find in stores are full of synthetic fillers, chemicals, and detergents. This not only dries out the skin, but it’s absorbed by the pores and by the drain. Stick to a body wash / soap that is all natural and made with a nourishing oil base.

We recommend: Beer Bar - This premium bar is made with a natural blend of organic shea butter, castor, coconut+ olive oils, and vitamin e. Each bar is then infused with grapefruit craft beer and sea kelp from the shores of Nova Scotia. One bar is safe for hands, face, body, or hair. Fresh & masculine scent of spearmint, grapefruit, lavender and black pepper.

2. Moisturize

Strong skin is healthy skin. Moisturizing the skin is important to fight aging, keep appearing healthy and feeling nourished. Since moisturizers are absorbed through the pores of your skin, you want to find a natural lotion or cream that is free from synthetics and artifcial fillers. It’s also important to find a moisturizer that is balanced, meaning it’s quick drying while providing enough nourishment.

We recommend: Original Sea Kelp Moisturizer - Our original moisturizing formula shares many properties with natural moisturizers 2, 4, even 8 times it’s price in value. Made with sea kelp extract, this face + body lotion is all natural, quick drying, vegan friendly, and a very subtle fresh scent. Use twice daily for best results.

3. Nourish & Protect

Mens hands are notoriously dry and neglected. But finding a natural hand cream that is built strong can be difficult. Look for a cream that is shea-based and quick drying. Find a container that is sturdy and airline safe, so you can take it on the go. You also want to find a natural, multi-purpose balm for when your skin really needs repair. A natural balm can be a moisturizer, anti-septic, lip balm, or healing ointment all in one.

We recommend: Deck Hands Sea Kelp Hand Cream + Rescue Balm - Deck Hands is our new moisturizing cream formulated for dry, hard working hands. Made with organic shea butter, it’s our most nourishing formula and dries fast. Fresh citrus scent of bergamot, patchouli, and lemongrass. Rescue Balm comes in a re-usable tin, or an easy-apply stick for on the go.

4. All In The Lips

Lips are exposed to the air 24/7, and prevention is just as important as treatment when it comes to keeping them healthy. Look for a balm with natural beeswax, which creates a natural barrier to protect against the environment while locking in moisture. Vitamin e will help heal cracks, sores, and dry spots.

We recommend: Fishermint Sea Kelp Lip Balm - Organic beeswax, sea kelp, coconut oil, fresh mint leaves, peppermint oil, eucalyptus. This balm cools the lips, nourishes, and protects against dry air.

5. Styling

Facial hair can be difficult to tame. A natural balm that moisturizes, softens, and de-odorizes can make a big difference. Look for an all purpose beard balm that can be applied to beard, moustache, eyebrows, and even hair. For best results apply when wet after a shower.

We recommend: Beard Balm - We made our beard balm with the above in mind, a multi-use all natural balm that could be used for anything. We use fresh and masculine natural scents like lemon, peppermint, ginger, and spice. Comes in an easy apply stick for no mess application on the go.

Our products are made with sea kelp harvested from the cold shores of Nova Scotia. Kelp is beneficial for skin’s strength, elasticity, and healing.

This summer is going to be different in how we interact, where we go, and also in the principles for keeping our skin healthy. Apart from the obvious (excessive hand washing), we are also dealing with changing climates and a challenging summer vacation schedule that’s forcing some of us to get outside in our own back yards (not so terrible). The outdoor environment can be challenging to navigate in terms of keeping our skin healthy, vibrant, and these challenges can be harder to overcome (and expensive) for those with senstitivities.

Nature typically gives back to us, and offers many natural remedies for our skin, we just need to learn how to use them.Let’s break it down and cover simple ways to help keep your skin looking / feeling healthy during summer without using overpriced, overcomplicated solutions:
