Black Men’s Skincare: Treating Your Skin Type

So you know your skin type, but what’s next in crafting the perfect skin care regimen for a black male? Each skin type is unique and requires different products and treatments to balance skin and leave it healthy and clear. Read on to find out how to select black skincare products according to your skin type.


Normal skin types are lucky in that their routines can usually be minimal. The key is to maintain the balance of healthy skin. One should use non-sensitive products with no harsh ingredients. Sometimes the best thing for skin is simply throwing some warm water on the face when waking up. Don’t over-cleanse or cause any reactions to the skin. Like every skin type, sunscreen is also critical.


Oily skin may need to be cleansed more than the recommended twice a day. As oil builds up it is best to remove it using a powerful wash such as sulfur or salicylic acid to prevent clogged pores and blemishes. Try Chimere Bump Control Cleansing Bar for Normal to Oily Skin as it is specifically targeted to clear clogged pores and leave skin fresh and clean. Toners are also helpful in removing any oil, dirt or bacteria that washing may have left behind. If you are facing any dark spots or scars left from past acne, use a gel or serum product, such as Clear Essence Advance Complex Fade Gel or Skin Lightening Serum, to fade marks. Oily skin is best treated using gels and serums as they are water-based rather than oil-based.


When selecting products for dry skin it is important to avoid ingredients such as alcohol and sodium for your skincare routine. These products will only further dry out the skin. Try moisturizing soaps such as Clear Essence Olive and Carrot Oil Soap bars. The natural ingredients will hydrate skin and leave it soft and smooth. For dry skin the key is to moisturize as much as possible. Our Skin Beautifying Milk is an all over body lotion that will also even out discolored skin tones. You can also add Clear Essence Skin Beautifying Oil to a bath or apply it directly to the skin for more hydration.


Using the above two regimens for oily and dry skin, target the areas of your skin that need attention on either side of the fence. Combination requires a little extra skill but with precision and attention to your skin’s needs you can find a balance eventually.


Delicate skin is easily irritated by harsh chemicals and ingredients found in products. Try all natural ingredients to ensure that your skin won’t fall victim to any breakouts or rashes. Clear Essence has three complete lines of all natural products: Adure, Lemon Plus Vitamin C line, and My Natural Beauty Line.

Need simple skincare rules that all black men regardless of skin type will benefit from? Drink plenty of water daily. Don’t smoke or excessively drink alcohol. Wash skin thoroughly after a long day. And always remember sunscreen! Follow these rules at least and you’ll be off to a good start.
