Simple Skincare for the Modern Man

Annie Neilson At-Home Tips & DIY, Spa Notes
Sir Vital is Source Vital for Men

Sir Vital was formulated with the modern man in mind. They paid attention to every detail, addressing skin concerns, deep blue logo, naturally derived, with effective ingredients and woodsy, deep, warm, vibrant aromas that excite any man, or woman!

Taking the heart of Source Vital and tweaking ingredients, oils, and textures to suit specific Men’s needs. Ingrown hairs, variety of skin concerns like minimizing congestion or addressing acne, encouraging healthy radiant skin, and support skin as it ages are all goals of Sir Vital products.


How committed to skincare are you?

A lot of men find a simple, effective routine that is easily laid out not only takes guess work out of how to use the products but also encourages the actual use of them! Some guys also, are avid skin care lovers and thrive with complex routines. Pairing some targeted Rhonda Allison products with Sir Vital would be amazing. Products like Mandelic Arginine for overall brightness and protection, or shifting to the Beta Green Tea Cleanser during bouts of inflamed red skin and acne, are great options! Let’s run through a super quick routine that anyone can follow and use for guidance to grabbing a few skincare products!

Simple steps to follow…

Sir Vital Cleanse, is rich, invigorating, and deep pore cleansing. It’s a parallel product to our Source Vital’s Algae Deep Cleanse, think peppermint wake up calls, with an enhanced blend of Essential Oils to target brightness, dull skin, hydration, and more all while giving a deep, woodsy, earthy aroma. Spruce, Amyris, Sandalwood, and Patchuli to name a few!

How to use: This cleanser can be used morning and night, to remove dirt, oil, and impurities. Massage vigorously into skin and work into a rich lather (non sudsing!) and rinse with tepid water!

Grab a Source Vital Exfoliant to get your skin refined and renewed. The Silt Scrub is a great option for most skin types, gently resurfacing and leaves the skin feeling fresh. The grain size is easy to work with even with most beards but be sure to rinse really well after gently scrubbing the skin! Using the Aroma Peel is another great exfoliant, especially for our dudes with facial hair!

How to use: Apply 15-20 drops and massage into skin vigorously, then buff with a wash cloth and get ready to tone or apply your favorite serum!

Here is where you shift into your “treatment” flow of your skincare routine! Use your favorite toner, like Source Vital Blue Tansy Toning Essence; wonderful for sensitive to normal skin, balance, hydrate with Hyaluronic Acid and soothe. You can also grab a serum to target your concerns. Source Vital SV23 is an overall game changer to encourage hydrated, radiant, healthy skin, or Rhonda Allison’s Synergy A for those wanting Vitamin A in their routine or Grape Seed Hydrating Serum  to soften skin.


Y’all, now let’s get into BEARD care!

The trio of Beard Oils; Condition, Thrive, and Tame.

The Beard Oils by Sir Vital are exquisite products to add to your routine not only for beard care but also that precious skin underneath- it needs love too!! They carefully curated three go to Oils for any beard concern.
