Skin care for men


The specific needs of men's skin

Male skin also needs quality ingredients and nourishing products to keep the skin barrier healthy and vital. Contrary to popular belief, men's skin has specific characteristics and is texturally different from women's skin.

Do you suffer from oily skin? You are not alone!

The hormone testosterone determines the properties of men's skin and gives it a different structure than women's skin. Every skin is unique and every situation is different. Yet we usually see that men have more oily skin that suffers from impurities and acne. This skin condition is a direct result of increased sebum production, which is often hormonally determined.

A shiny face needs appropriate care. Aggressive products damage the skin even more and can stimulate sebum production in oily areas. So ignore them! Always use mild products and make sure you exfoliate the skin weekly.

Get rid of acne and blackheads


This scrub works wonders for the oily T-zone and for acne skin. The facial scrub with rice grains and natural essential oils gently removes dead skin cells and impurities and will nourish and repair the skin at the same time.

Do you suffer from sensitive skin during and after shaving?

A fresh and clean-shaven face is a must for many men to start the day with confidence. Unfortunately, this ritual often causes irritated skin, resulting in red bumps. The face can feel dry, tight and rough and show strong reactions to external influences such as sun, wind or cold. Do you want to avoid this?

  • Cleanse your skin daily with a mild facial lotion
  • Hydrate afterwards with a nourishing day cream or restorative night cream

Dry skin, redness, itching or flaky skin under the beard?

These are skin problems that often occur in men. A dry face is caused by a wide range of factors including;

  • Temperature variations
  • Non-natural care products

These often contain chemical and aggressive ingredients, such as SLE and alcohol, that damage and dry out the skin barrier. They disrupt the functioning of the stratum corneum (outer layer of the skin), causing the skin to lose too much moisture. Bacteria and impurities can penetrate the skin and cause inflammation.


Cleanse your face with a mild and moisture-regulating facial lotion that is suitable for people with sensitive skin. Always avoid products with chemical and drying ingredients such as alcohol. They damage the barrier function of the skin, which only increases irritation.


Always make sure that you help the damaged skin to sufficiently recover after shaving with a nourishing and moisturizing day and/or night cream . The SELF care line contains a high dose of vitamins and antioxidants that restore the skin barrier and maintain the moisture balance.

"SELF's night cream ensures that I no longer suffer from sore skin after shaving. Great product. I am very satisfied."

Extract from quote - David

Men's hands? They will have a hard time!

Do you, like many others, suffer from dry hands? It's normal for your hands to feel dry and rough from all that washing. Most foaming soaps contain chemicals like SLS that damage the skin barrier on your hands. This natural protective layer regulates the moisture balance of your skin and keeps bacteria at bay. For people with sensitive skin and conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, these chemicals can cause even more damage. The result? Dry and tight skin, sometimes even cracks and wounds.
