Green Grooming: Natural & Organic Face Masks For Men

Going Green Luxe isn’t just for the ladies. I know a lot of gents want to be green when it comes to personal care and grooming. Of course, I couldn’t leave out all of the boyfriends out there! I find more and more men are starting to realize the importance of taking care of your skin. Good skin is a sign of good health and vitality.

Let’s clear something up, in the land of natural and organic skincare you will find that skincare products are not gendered. What’s good for her may be good for you. It’s time to analyze your skin and figure out your SKIN CODE, that is what kind of skin do you have. What would you like to improve or maintain? There are brands that don’t fall into the green category that make skincare products specifically for men and in a lot of cases are not geared towards her skincare needs. When you go green, things change quite a bit. Of course, it if smells like sandalwood and cedar she may not want to use your face mask but it all depends on an individuals skin and preference. That’s not to say every non-green product is specifically gendered either. Hopefully, we can help you figure out your SKIN CODE. Don’t be afraid to use a product that’s for her because that’s how it’s marketed. Start looking at ingredients and select products based on your individual SKIN CODE.

We will be breaking down the SKIN CODE basics, so be sure to keep checking the site!


 

Here are a few of my green mask picks:

Tata Harper Resurfacing Face Mask

I love this brand. In my opinion, it’s a unisex skincare line. So if you are coupled you can share this with your significant other. Honestly, I would be quite impressed with a guy who even knows about Tata Harper, just saying. A man who takes the time to find good products, I love. For those who shave, tan or play sports it’s good to give your skin some TLC at least once a week.
