Your Grooming Routine Could Use Some Seaweed

Chris Wellhausen

From hydration boosts to anti-aging benefits, products powered by marine plants can round out your grooming regimen. Here are just a few of our favorites that include seaweed to try right now.

There’s a reason that seaweed and algae are surfacing as main ingredients in grooming products: The nutrients may help provide both protection against skin-aging toxins, as well as hydration and collagen boosts. According to Dhaval G. Bhanusali, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist at Hudson Dermatology and Laser Surgery in New York City, “When used in haircare, they may also help nurture strong hair, while promoting moisture and healthy shine.”

Different types offer different benefits, but most are packed with proteins, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Time to give your grooming routine a deep-sea boost.

The Essential Skincare Routine Every Man Should Follow

Think of the best men’s skincare regimen like making a sandwich, or a pizza, or following any recipe, really. There is a specific order that you need to follow in order for everything to work together to achieve the shared goal. Of course, your skincare routine won’t satisfy your hunger pangs, but it will nourish and hydrate your skin, which is the shared goal of all the products you use.


The Best Skincare Products Every Guy Needs

There are two that are mandatory and the rest is optional, but extremely beneficial. Here’s everything you need to know about the best products to consider.


Grooming Essentials, But Better: 22 Carefully Curated Products

Cleanser (Mandatory, Daily and Nightly)
First things first: Wash your face. You should not be applying anything to your face if it isn’t clean. That’s because there’s a thin layer of sweat, oil, and grime that has built up, and it will prevent the products you use from absorbing and from doing their jobs. Plus, cleansing unclogs the pores, and prevents them from clogging, so add another tally for doing it twice daily: when you wake up and before you hit your pillow. Do it after exercising, or after you get too sweaty or dirty during the day.

Even if you don’t have sensitive skin, it’s wise to use a product that touts itself as gentle, so that you don’t flush your face with abrasive cleansing agents multiple times a day. Otherwise, it’s a recipe for dry, irritated skin. Stick with gentle cleansers that also accommodate sensitive skin, like Aesop Cleansing Milk or Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser.

Exfoliant (Twice Weekly)
While a cleanser helps flush away dirt and grime, an exfoliant is an abrasive product that lifts dead skin cells away from the surface of the skin, preventing them from clogging pores. This process then allows the healthy, strong skin cells to put their best face forward. In this way, exfoliating can promote cellular turnover in the skin, helping to heal dark spots and blemishes faster. However, it should not be used on acne or active, healing wounds. Stick to a twice-weekly usage, as anything greater would only aggravate the healthy skin cells and cause redness or irritation. We recommend exfoliating at night so the skin can rebound fully overnight.

Two exfoliants we love are Brickell’s scrub, packed with pumice and jojoba beads, and Menaji’s face and body scrub, which is generously portioned to cover every inch.

Toner (Optional, As Needed)
If you have oily skin or if you use all of the products in this regimen, then you may need a natural toner before proceeding. A toner “resets” the skin’s natural pH levels and regulates oil production. These things are otherwise aggravated by excessive product use, or by one’s own genetics. Typically, toners are a simple splash that you can apply with a cotton ball. They absorb and dry quickly. Be certain to avoid anything with alcohol that dries the skin—that will do far more damage than good. You really can’t go wrong with witch hazel, like Thayer’s. Tea tree toners are also great at balancing and neutralizing the skin, like that from The Body Shop.

Serum (Optional)
If you want to kick your skincare regimen up a notch, the easiest way to do so is with a serum. It’s lightweight and seeps deep into the skin to help hydrate and nourish your skin. There are tons to choose from: Some promise radiant skin, while others help clear up dark spots, shrink pores, or firm fine lines. Others even exfoliate.

If this is your first foray into serums, however, then start with one that focuses on hydration. Pick a hyaluronic acid serum, since the ingredient soaks up moisture to keep skin firm. You can apply it morning and night—just a couple drops should do the trick. We recommend trying the hyaluronic acid serums from The Ordinary or OSEA.

Eye Cream (Optional)
Another optional product: eye cream, but we’re guessing more of us find it mandatory than not. That’s because eye cream can correct a host of problems, like under-eye baggage, dark circles, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. The skin around the eyes is thinner and more fragile than the rest of the face, and it’s a lot more sensitive, too. That’s why you find eye-dedicated products targeted alongside moisturizers. Many of them also contain peptides, which boost collagen and elastin production.

You can pick a caffeine- and hyaluronic-packed one for the daytime to help stimulate blood flow and boost moisture levels—for that, pick Supply’s eye cream. Or, for nighttime, you can pick something that prevents the onset of puffiness and dark circles, like Kiehl’s overnight eye cream.

Retinol (Optional, Nightly)
Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that works wonders as an anti-ager. It helps shrink pores, reduce breakouts and wrinkles, and more. The only caveats: It can make your skin sensitive to sunlight, so it really should be applied for nighttime use; second, if you’re going to sign on to using retinol, you won’t see results for about three months, and you’ll need to use it indefinitely to keep said rewards. And if you experience any peeling or redness at first, it might just be that your skin is adjusting to the retinol, but most OTC products have low enough doses of retinol to do this.

There are all kinds of retinol products out there, and you might see them under different terminology, like retinoids, Retin-A, tretinoin, and so forth. The latter is the common name for most dermatologist-prescribed versions of retinol. These are typically higher-strength products that have profound effects on the skin, though they may also render it more sensitive to sunlight. Just work with your doctor to find something that works well for you. Just note that the prescriptions are often deemed “cosmetic” by your insurance company, and they may not cover its use. (A typical tube can run $ 100 otherwise, which is why many people stick with lower-grade, OTC products which double as their overnight moisturizer.) If you choose the OTC route, we suggest Philip Thomas Roth’s retinol serum (which should yet be topped with an overnight cream) or Drunk Elephant’s nightly retinol cream.

SPF Moisturizer (Mandatory, Daily) or Overnight Moisturizer (Mandatory, Nightly):
Moisturizing is the final step in any and all skincare routines and just as important as cleansing your face. That’s because moisturizer both nourishes and protects the skin. A daytime moisturizer should be packed with SPF to also shield the skin from harmful UV rays. Look for broad-spectrum hydrators that block both UVA and UVB rays, and something with SPF 30 or more is preferred—Cardon’s SPF moisturizer checks all the right boxes.

Since you don’t need sun protection while you sleep, pick a dense overnight cream that will work double time to help cells regenerate and to give you the most nourished skin when you wake up. Some are also packed with retinol for a 2-in-1 boost (like Clark’s Botanicals’), while others work to detox and recover skin (such as Grown Alchemist’s).

Not every guy should follow the exact same regimen. Here are some additional tips from Dr. Michele Green, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City, on what to consider using in your routine if you have…

Oily Skin: Green notes that, while sebum production is good for the skin’s health, an overproduction of it (as seen in oily skin) can feel grimey and can clog the pores, leading to acne and blackheads. She recommends using a lightweight, lipid-free cleanser. (We love Elta MD’s foaming cleanser.)

“After cleansing, apply a toner to help open the pores,” she says. “Select a toner with alpha hydroxy, salicylic, or glycolic acid, since these ingredients facilitate cell turnover, control oil, and remove dead skin cells.” (Try REN’s clarifying toner.)

Green says that, in general, the best types of hydrators for nourishing and regulating oily skin include gel-based products and lightweight formulas. “These elements provide your skin with the nourishment it needs without clogging the pores.” (Lab Series’ hydrating gel is an excellent option with a matte finish.)

Sensitive Skin:
One ingredient Dr. Green encourages her sensitive-skin patients to seek is bakuchiol. “ Bakuchiol is a derivative of the Babchi plant which in studies have shown to have the same effects on the skin as retinols,” Green says. However, bakuchiol products won’t be irritating on skin like retinol ones. “Although this alternative works differently, the benefits are the same: It stimulates collagen, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, plus improves skin texture, acne, and hyperpigmentation.” (Give Ole Henriksen’s Retin-ALT bakuchiol serum a go.)

As for toners, moisturizers, and serums, Green says to avoid anything salicylic acid and other alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). Instead, stick with witch hazel. “Witch hazel offers the same benefits as salicylic acid. It is a natural herbal extract with the ability to cleanse the pores, soothe the skin, thus preventing blackheads and acne.” (Again, Thayer’s witch hazel is a surefire bet.)

“When it comes to a moisturizer for sensitive skin, jojoba oil works great,” she says. “It is very similar to the skin’s natural sebum which makes it a great alternative for added moisture. It has the ability to provide moisture only in areas that need it while maintaining moisture levels in other areas.” (Pyunkang Yul’s oil is a winner here.)

Acne-Prone Skin:
“Select a skin-balancing skin cleanser to balance oil control while also cleansing the skin,” Dr. Green says. (Her own brand, MG Skin Labs, makes an excellent pore-minimizing, skin-toning cleanser.) “Cleansers like this should contain a combination of benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid,” she says. “Salicylic acid works to gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin which can clog the pores. Benzoyl peroxide treats the acne-causing bacteria. The combination of these two is effective at treating acne.”

Next, you should add a step after cleansing: Apply a treatment product (and you should avoid exfoliating, while we’re at it). “This product should also contain salicylic acid or glycolic acid,” she says of daytime use. As for nighttime, consider retinol or tretinoin as outlined above in the general regimen, after serum application. “These ingredients work well on acne-prone skin to control breakouts.” (She often recommends Differin adapalene gel, an OTC acne-fighting gel with adapalene, which is a form of retinoid. “Adapalene works by killing bacteria that causes acne and also promotes cell growth allowing the skin to heal faster.”)

As for moisture: “Acne-prone skin needs a moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C,” she says. Together they’ll help the skin rebound from acne and scarring, while also promoting maximum moisture and reducing future breakouts. (Vichy’s serum + moisturizer combo is a good duo for this.)

4 Can’t-Live-Without Grooming Products You Should Add to Your Routine

Long gone are the days when men had to siphon off facial moisturizers, serums, and hairspray marketed to women that they found in the medicine cabinet. There are a bevy of products out there for men in masculine scents: cedar, tobacco, leather.

However, there’s a big group of guys who don’t want to smell like a cigar club—and an equal number of women who eschew sweet, floral scents that are sold to the fairer sex. Over the last year, the products in my bathroom have shifted to almost exclusively unisex. The scents tend to be clean and herbaceous, and all the products are on the must-have list (instead of nice-to-have—I wouldn’t know firsthand, but I have yet to meet the guy who needs four kinds of beard oil). Check out some of our current favorites, below, that you’ll want to add to your regular routine.


20 Ways to Look Younger — Without Looking Like You’re Trying

EIR NYC Pitted Deodorant

EIR NYC Pitted Deodorant
This Brooklyn-based all-natural unisex brand has quite a few products I use on the regular, particularly the Surf Mud Pro face stick for SPF protection and the fizzy Active Face Wash. But it’s the deodorant I’m particularly crazy about. It comes in a biodegradable tube, and is non-obvious enough that I can throw it in my bag if I know it’s going to be a hot one. The protection is as good as I get from drugstore brands, and I love the smell of evergreen trees and sand, reminiscent of the northern coast of California. This is the sort of thing I stock up on and give to my friends to try.

Maapilim Facial Mud Mask

Maapilim Facial Mud Mask
If you haven’t tried a mud mask before, you’re going to love it. Cake this stuff on, which smells soothing, like a ceramics studio, wait until it gets dry and matte, and wash it off with a cloth. Clear pores and oil-free skin await, which makes this a summer must-have. Getting it off can be a bit of a production, so if you’re short on time in the morning, rub some across your nose and chin, have coffee and brush your teeth while it dries, then wipe off the mud and go.

[$ 38; maapilim.com]

Sachajuan Dry Powder Shampoo

Sachajuan Dry Powder Shampoo
There are some mornings that a full post-workout in the shower isn’t in the cards and the best you can hope for is a paper towel wipe-down and forgiving coworkers. On those days, I add one more thing to the express itinerary—dry shampoo. These products are supposed to give you a quick refresh and soak up some scalp sweat. Fair enough. But often, they come out too powdery and you turn out looking like an 18th century barrister. This spray comes out fast, cold, and mostly clear. Plus, it gives your hair a little lift and style as it dries.

Youth Corridor Ultimate Antioxidant C Boost Serum

Youth Corridor Ultimate Antioxidant C Boost Serum
I’m 34, but a few months ago I realized there were lines and sagging on my face that made me look (and feel) quite a bit older. So I’ve been pretty religious about applying a few drops of this serum to my mug every morning, and man has it made a difference. My skin looks brighter and it’s more resilient, especially when I spend the whole day in the sun. And it feels healthier to the touch. It’s pricey, but a bottle should last you about a year.

Inside a Beauty Editor’s Insane Skin-Care Routine

By Ashley Weatherford

I once dedicated a solid 45 minutes each morning to my beauty routine, and that was a problem. So when I finally cut my embarrassingly elaborate skin-care routine down to ten minutes this summer, it was a point of pride. My goal: perfect, luminous skin.

I begin my streamlined morning lineup with a few pumps of Phace’s Detoxifying Cleanser, a non-foaming cleanser specifically enhanced with a pH slightly lower than our skin’s natural pH. I learned about Phace when the brand’s Harvard-trained founder paid the Cut a visit last year. There are a few very nerdy reasons why you want a cleaner with a low pH. At the top of the list: hydrated skin, and fewer blemishes and wrinkles down the road. It’s a bit of a mystery why the low pH helps protect skin better, but one plausible theory is since skin that stays in the low-pH range is more acidic, it naturally fights acne-causing bacteria while preserving the face’s native moisture barrier.

After I cleanse, I rub on the most aptly named product in existence: Good Genes. The serum by Sunday Riley is fueled by lactic acid and makes my skin instantly glow. It has a pungent, spicy smell that turns off many, but surprisingly, not me. Maybe all you need to know is that Helen Mirren is a fan.

I usually let Good Genes marinate on my skin for a few minutes. Then, if I’m feeling undermoisturized, I give a few blots of Pestle and Mortar’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum around my chin and hairline, where I sometimes become uncharacteristically dry (my skin is generally oily). Pestle and Mortar is the brainchild of an Irish biochemist, her skin-care guru sister, and her photographer husband, who wanted to help people look Photoshopped IRL. So far, my experience looks promising.

For my eyes, I’ve most recently turned to a gnarly skin-care brand that employs technology used on astronauts in outer space. Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel is a clear solution that loses its semi-solid shape as soon as it touches my skin. It melts and becomes oily, like cold bacon fat thrown in a frying pan. The story behind the brand goes something like this: A British plastic surgeon teamed up with space scientists to create a healing salve for post-op patients in his practice. The space scientists tapped into their knowledge of skin-care ingredients astronauts use when exposed to the age-accelerating elements of space, and before long, a beauty brand was born. I can’t say for sure why I use this product (my eyes don’t need a “lift” just yet), but if I’m being honest, there’s an amusement factor when I think about a bunch of rocket scientists huddled together to launch a cosmetic product.

Right after I tend to my eyes, I slap on Philosophy’s Renewed Hope in a Jar SPF 30 mixed with a dab of every makeup artist’s (and Kardashian’s) holy-grail product, Kevyn Aucoin’s Sensual Skin Enhancer, which completes my morning ritual.

Nighttime is a much more complicated story. First, I remove my makeup with some sort of wipe. Recently, that’s been makeup artist Lauren Napier’s individually packaged and guaranteed-to-never-dry-out wipes. Lauren’s worked with the likes of Zoë Kravitz, Anne Hathaway, and Lady Gaga, so you could say she knows a thing or several about cutting through serious face paint. She’s also worked with Drake, even though everyone knows that Aubrey is naturally beautiful.

I typically wash my face again with Phace. As soon as I pat dry, I swipe Pixi’s Glow Tonic over my face with a cotton round. Glow Tonic is new to the States, but in its native England, it’s a bit of a rock star. The glycolic acid in the formula gently smooths over rough spots and the occasional dark mark over time. It’s basically the budget version of Biologique Recherche’s P-50. A delightfully named Skin Perfecting Liquid from Paula’s Choice completes my acid application for the night. In there, you can find a watery concentration of 2 percent salicylic acid, which ensures that my pores stay clear and my blemishes remain buried.

It’s a waiting game of 30 minutes before I move to the next step. Though, truthfully, some nights, this is where the train ends. But if I’m being diligent, I follow the salicylic acid with Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging 1% Retinol Booster. The 30-minute waiting period nullifies any irritation that might arise when using an acid and a retinol at the same time. It’s a method I’ve tested through trial and error because it will sting a bit if I don’t wait. I don’t use retinols all the time, but I try to sometimes, if only because it’s one of the best products a person can use to avoid wrinkles later in life.

Related: How to Look Amazing in Under 10 Minutes

Immediately after the retinol, I dab on 111 Skin’s Celestial Black Diamond Contour Gel. Slightly thicker than the eye gel I use in the morning, it’s supposed to help stimulate the production of collagen, which, in return, will help diminish the appearance of dark circles. I’ve only just started to use the gel, but here’s to wishful thinking.

Finally, I finish off the night with La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Sheer. Yes, it’s expensive, and yes, if you agree with Kathleen, the Cut’s senior beauty editor, it might smell like granny cream, but I love that it makes my skin feel really soft and plump in the morning. When I’m not being completely overindulgent, I’ll use Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask instead.

And speaking of masks, lately Dr. Jart’s Deep Hydration sheet mask is what I like every now and then, when my skin feels especially parched. I actually swear by sheet masks for hydration. Unlike traditional masks, the cloth in a sheet mask traps moisture so skin feels especially supple.

But will I keep this routine going throughout the fall? Who knows? Maybe I’ll Kondo more to add some simplicity to my life.

Is Gluten Hiding in Your Beauty Routine?

Buyers beware! There could be gluten hiding in your beauty regimen!

I learned this lesson recently and could not believe that I never stopped to think about it before. When I was diagnosed with celiac disease I cleaned out my kitchen completely. I got new groceries, new appliances, researched the best gluten-free products, and hunted online for the closest place to get a good gluten free-bagel (NYC people, you must visit Jennifer’s Way Bakery in the East Village!).

Unfortunately, I never stopped to think about my beauty routine and how products I use daily like soap, shampoo, and moisturizer could contain gluten. At first I thought, how could I miss this? How could I have risked accidental glutening?! But to be fair no doctor ever warned me of the potential risks, and on top of that it can actually be pretty difficult to discern whether or not there could be gluten in your soap or cosmetics. Instead of seeing something clearly gluten containing like “wheat” on the ingredient list it is more likely that you would see a name like “hydrolyzed vegetable protein,” which isn’t necessarily so obvious (at least to me!).

When I found out that a number of my products weren’t gluten free my initial reaction was panic and distress. I just couldn’t believe I never stopped to check. The fact that we often have to go to extreme lengths just to make sure our food is safe is a lot of work as it is, but now we have to worry about food, medications, AND cosmetics? Sometimes it really feels like gluten is hiding around every corner, and that gets pretty exhausting when you are just trying to lead a normal and healthy life. But, knowledge is power! And with that I set off investigating.

I started by consulting a friend of mine, a fellow celiac and a really amazing advocate for the gluten free community. She has been living with celiac disease for quite some time and is always helping me on my gluten-free journey. You may know her as Anti-Wheat Girl! Through her help and some online resources I learned that the general consensus from the medical community is that gluten absorbed through the skin should not be cause for concern among celiacs, but the chance of accidental ingestion and glutening is an issue.

The next step was to clean out my bathroom cabinet and replace the gluten-filled products with healthy gluten-free ones. At first it was really challenging to find products that were gluten-free. Speaking with company after company got really exhausting, especially when the answers weren’t definitive. Thankfully there are a number of companies with gluten free products out there who were happy to help and offered very clear answers. Mane ‘n Tail for example was incredibly helpful! I also discovered that Tarte, a cosmetic line easily found in Sephora, is completely gluten-free! I love their products to begin with, so I was thrilled to learn that they are safe!

Immediately after cleaning out the cabinets I headed to Sephora to stock up on Tarte. At checkout I was offered some free samples which I normally decline since I have a million allergies, but this time was different! The free sample I got at checkout was a completely gluten-free skin brightening and exfoliating treatment from the brand Tata Harper. I was so happy to have received a sample that for once looked like it was made for me! All of the Tata Harper products are made in Vermont with no animal testing, are certified vegan, organic, free of toxins, artificial fragrances, synthetics, GMOs and gluten. I haven’t tried any of their products yet but I am excited to get started testing their samples — I only wish I had gotten more!

This lesson was certainly a tough one to learn, but I’m grateful to have realized it when I did. If you’ve had trouble finding gluten free cosmetics and beauty products, or if you’ve had some great experiences, I would love to know. Share your story, frustrations, excitement, and favorite gluten free brands with me at hannah.crane@nyu.edu.

Pro Dancer And His Groomsmen Bring Down The House With Killer Routine

Many grooms have attempted a surprise wedding dance for their brides, but few have executed it as impressively as professional dancer Kirk Henning and his groomsmen. 

At his recent wedding, Kirk gifted his bride Valerie Tellmann — a ballerina with the Richmond Ballet — a choreographed dance to a medley of hits spanning all genres. They got down to songs like “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, “(You Drive Me) Crazy” by Britney Spears, “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins and “The World” by Brad Paisley, incorporating props like “Top Gun” sunglasses and cowboy hats where appropriate. 

Wedding videographer Ginger Topham captured the phenomenal performance and posted the video to YouTube on Tuesday. 

The bride and groom held their reception at Richmond, Virginia’s CenterStage – the same stage they once shared when they were both dancers with the Richmond Ballet company. 

Valerie’s over-the-top excitement throughout the performance couldn’t be more adorable. See what all the fuss is about in the video above. 

The Huffington Post reached out to the couple for comment but did not hear back by the time of publication.

6 Ways To Add Blueberries To Your Beauty Routine (Besides Eating Them)

While perusing the produce at our local farmer’s market, our mouths start watering the very second we see baskets of blueberries. We love making fruit salads and smoothies with this delicious fruit, especially since we learned that it works wonders for our skin and hair.

According to board-certified dermatologist and psychiatrist Dr. Amy Wechsler, blueberries contain antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamins A, B, C and E. These nutrients can improve skin hydration, protect against free radicals that contribute to signs of aging and help increase circulation, which leads to a radiant glow. 

The vitamin B complex in blueberries also helps with hair growth, says Tabasum Mir, a skincare physician in cosmetic dermatology and cosmetic laser surgery. She explains, “Think about when you’re trying to grow hair … most people take folate and vitamin B. It helps with maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails.” Mir adds that topical application of blueberry allows it to goes directly into the skin. 

Just don’t be easily fooled by beauty products that claim to be made with blueberries. “You really need to look at the ingredients,” says Mir. “If it looks like a recipe book and blueberry is listed at the end, it’s probably very little of it there.”

Since July is National Blueberry Month, we’ve rounded up six beauty-boosting products that are loaded with this super fruit.
