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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

This year more than ever, Dad’s hands are taking abuse from over cleansing and drying-out from sanitizing. Although Dads are usually the ones who need to be paying extra care to their hands, they are often times still neglected.
The key to healthy skin is to find a routine and products that are simple and work, and that shouldn’t be at the expense of their health by adding in chemical ingredients they don’t need. Simple, natural, effective. Rinse and repeat.
