After soaking up some summer fun, you (hopefully) realize that skin care for men is important — not just blocking out harmful rays with the right sunscreen, but looking after the overall health of your skin. SPF aside, skin care is something you should be working on all year. Folding in some sort of morning process, that goes beyond splashing water on your face, pays off with smoother, more supple skin. Your eyes will have fewer fine lines, they won’t look as puffy, and your face will feel hydrated. So, yes, skin care for men is important and, by now, you understand starting a routine is a smart move, but what if you’re new to the world of pumps, squeeze tubs, and fancy creams?

Subscription kits are an easier way to start a skin care routine than diving into that rabbit hole of a lotion aisle at the pharmacy. Because kits show up every few weeks, they simplify things, which leads in turn to better consistency — the key to any successful regimen. These kits are designed to be as fussy as you want to get, from a basic three-bottle morning routine to larger sets that will fill a medicine cabinet shelf (and a good chunk of your morning). Most boxes give you enough product for about 30 days so you can see which works for you before subscribing. Plan on finishing the kit, as it’s common to see results in about three to six weeks.
