The Best Skincare Products, Based on Your Skin Type

If you’re like us, you want the very best when it comes to products that improve your life, wellbeing, and productivity. At Disco, we care about premium skincare products that will work with your skin and provide the best fortification and nourishment, so that you can look younger for longer. 

When it comes to sourcing the best skincare products, it’s important to understand what you’re working with. Everyone experiences different skin conditions and issues throughout their lives. Whether you’re just beginning your skincare journey, or you are a tried-and-true purveyor of the best products in the industry, we’ll break down what you should look for when buying the best skincare products.

What’s Your (Skin) Type? 

Do you know what kind of skin you have? As men, we come in all shapes and sizes. Just like Love Island; we all have a type, and the primary order of business is knowing what that type is and what to look for. There are generally 5 skin types: Normal, Oily, Dry, Combination, and Sensitive

Your skin type can be contingent on a variety of factors and even change slightly throughout your life. Your skin type can depend on genetics, how much water is in your skin and your body’s ability to retain it, how oily your skin is, how sensitive your skin is, and the climate you live in. It’s important to identify the type of skin you have so that you know what kind of products and ingredients to treat it with. 

Oily or Acne-Prone Skin

Oily skin is characterized by excess oil and a greasy feeling on the face. The oil comes from the sebaceous glands that cover our face and skin. These sebaceous glands are also known as pores, and they can naturally open and close with temperature and humidity. Sebum is the natural lubricant or natural skin oils that are released from the pores to keep our skin naturally lubricated. Now you may be thinking, “Why do I produce so much oil?”

Several factors could be causing excess oil on your face. However, remember that having oily skin is simply a skin type, and it’s not something you can “cure,” but rather manage effectively with the right skincare routine and products.

Excess oiliness could be a product of hormonal changes or imbalance or using chemical-filled products with sketchy ingredients. On average, men have larger pore sizes than women, contributing to men having typically more oily skin than women – so this could be the case as well! Unfortunately, when oily skin is not managed properly, it can also lead to more acne breakouts due to clogged pores and excess oil. 

Skincare products to focus on when managing oily or acne-prone skin are those that will absorb, detoxify and clear out pores regularly of excess oil, dirt, and bacteria. Likewise, you should be using a clarifying cleanser, exfoliant scrub, a moisturizer, and a detoxifying face mask regularly. 

Cleansing regularly ensures that you clear away dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and bacteria from the face, keeping the coast clear for those precious pores. Next, exfoliate using an exfoliating face scrub to regulate the dead skin cells that accumulate on the face throughout the day, and to accelerate the natural skin cell rejuvenation cycle. Moisturizing may seem like the wrong thing to do with oily skin, but excess oil is actually a sign that your skin needs moisture, which is why the sebaceous glands are overcompensating. Use a hydrating face moisturizer with clarifying ingredients to keep the oil levels balanced.

One of the most important steps for managing an oily complexion is to use a weekly detoxifying face mask. Clay masks are so effective for absorbing excess oil in one go, clearing out pores, and reducing the inflammation and redness you may experience from acne breakouts. The Disco Rejuvenating Face Mask uses Bentonite Clay, Charcoal, and Willow Bark Extract to achieve a soothed, purified, and clearer complexion. 

Last, if you happen to struggle with unexpected blemishes and pimples due to your oily skin, you should invest in a good spot treatment. No one likes waking up with a big zit on an important day, and having a quick fix will improve your confidence like no other. The Disco Overnight Pimple Sticker uses dissolving microneedles to target the zit straight at the source with clarifying Madacassoside, Salicylic Acid, and nourishing Hyaluronic Acid.

Dry, Dehydrated Skin

On the opposite side of the spectrum, we have the gents that manage a dry skin type or dehydrated complexion. You may struggle with dry, scaly patches, and flaky skin. The key to managing a dry skin type is using skincare products that will restore the moisture barrier. This skin barrier keeps the face naturally lubricated and hydrated, but can become unbalanced due to several factors. 

To restore hydration to your complexion, the best skincare products will contain moisturizing ingredients like Macadamia Oil, Coconut Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Ceramides, and Aloe. In addition, ensure the skincare steps that you consistently integrate into your daily routine include exfoliating and moisturizing. 

First, exfoliation will ensure that you clear the dead skin cells from your face that could be contributing to the lack of moisture on your skin barrier. This will also alleviate those scaly, flaky patches you may experience. Try the Disco Exfoliating Face Scrub for an effective rejuvenation. Formulated with Papaya, Apricot Oil, and soothing Aloe, the Face Scrub balances skin tone and texture and stimulates the natural skin cell rejuvenation cycle. 

Next, moisturizing with a highly nourishing cream will be foundational to managing your dry skin type. Your skin is likely dried out easily, so ensure you apply a moisturizer directly after the shower, cleansing, or swimming to lock in moisture. The Disco Hydrating Face Moisturizer deeply nourishes your skin with Vitamin E, Macadamia Oil, and Vitamin C while still feeling lightweight and non-greasy. It stimulates collagen production, which keeps your skin looking young and wrinkle-free, while also brightening and evening any dark spots.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is a mix of dry skin and areas of extreme oiliness. It can be challenging to manage skin that has more mood swings than your dad watching his favorite NFL team. Fortunately, the best skincare products for combination skin will help bring zen back to your complexion.

Focus on using natural, plant-based ingredients can help restore balance and even out your skin tone. Avoid products that are specifically designed for oily skin, or specifically for dry skin. These can end up making your dry patches even more dehydrated and flaky, and the oily zones even more greasy and unruly.

The best ingredients for combination skin are Vitamin C and Niacinamide. Both of these ingredients are all about balance: they’ll resurface skin texture, and treat the skin with moisture or exfoliation wherever needed. Coconut Oil is also a great choice as it deeply nourishes dry skin while avoiding oily areas. 

The Disco Face Cleanser Stick bridges the gap between dry and oily skin with all-natural ingredients of Coconut Oil, Charcoal, and exfoliating Phytic Acid. 

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin types are, you guessed it, sensitive. And we don’t mean emotionally. But it’s okay if you are. Sensitive skin is highly susceptible to new products, ingredients, and environmental factors. It’s characterized by redness, itching, dryness, and occasional burning. Natural ingredients are the key to keeping your skin calm and happy.

For managing sensitive skin, the best skincare products will protect the easily triggered skin from environmental triggers like free radicals, UV ray exposure, and allergens. They'll also be incredibly gentle and nourishing while providing antioxidants to reduce inflammation, irritation, and redness. 

Always use a powerful SPF or sun protection when managing sensitive skin. The best skincare product you can invest in is a good sun block. The Disco Mineral Sun Block provides SPF 30 with protective Zinc Oxide, while also moisturizing the complexion with Niacinamide and Tripeptides. The sun block works to rebuild dermal structure and damaged skin; talk about prevention and correction all in one. 

Final Thoughts

Finding the best skincare products comes down to educating yourself on what will work best for your own skin – and that means not stealing your partner’s creams and lotions! At Disco, we care about providing men with the tools and products that will make them feel confident in their skin. Read more on the best skincare practices here at the Disco Journal.
