Billy’s Top 10 Essentials for Male Skincare

Billy’s Top 10 Essentials for Male Skincare

Fashion Blogger, Model & ActorBilly Brayshaw

Having modelled from a young age, I quickly grew a passion for fashion which lead me down the path of Instagram. More recently I've delved into the acting world, debuting on television in 2021.

'For many people, skincare can be a vast minefield, there are so many products and brands out there, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. Everyone’s skincare needs are different, but below are some of the products that have worked well for me.

From cleaners, exfoliators, facemasks and serums, there are many ways I try to make my skin as healthy as possible. Every product I have listed is something I’ve benefitted from using, and seen great results from implementing into my skincare routine.'

As Billy said, starting a skincare regime can be hard and you may often find yourself asking what skincare is good for men? Honestly, there are no right or wrong answers, especially as skincare formulas are ever improving and becoming more inclusive than they used to be marketed. 

Thanks to sites like Amazon and eBay, you can easily pick up a few things to keep your skin fresh, clear and revived. Skincare is there to be enjoyed, so we are happy to bring you this great curation from Billy, where you will certainly find something that piques your interest.

Billy Brayshaw's mybest Summary

Everyone's skin is different and therefore has different needs. Personally, I have combination skin which is a mixture of oily and dry, I also find my skin can be quite sensitive depending on the environment and weather I am in. 

All these things influence the products I use, and I'm forever adapting my routine to best suit my needs. The best advice that I can give is to keep trying different products, whether you're worried about ageing, acne, pigmentation, pores and many more - you will find a routine that works for you eventually.
