For the record, girls aren't the only ones who need to pay attention to the beauty department. When it comes to proper grooming and skin care, gender is inconsequential—and that said, you should know that even your boyfriend is not exempted from suffering from acne troubles and other beauty-related emergencies. So of course, being the caring and thoughtful girlfriend that we know you are, you should take it upon yourself to orient him on the basic products that he needs in his—ahem, dare we say it—own kikay kit.

We break it down for you below:

  1. Lip Balm

Kissable lips? Yes, please!

TRY: Nivea Men Replenishing Lip Balm, P97, Watsons

  1. Shaving Cream

Natural skin moisture is stripped away when shaving, so a shaving cream that prevents that while also soothing the skin and keeping razor burn at bay is a must.

TRY: American Crew Moisturizing Shave Cream, P938, Sephora.ph

  1. Hair Wax

Because bad hair days are a no-no even for them boys.

TRY: Bench Fix Professional Clay Doh 360, P165, shop.bench.com.ph

  1. Facial Wash

He might not have makeup to remove before hitting the sack, but the amount of dirt and oil that his face accumulated within the day would still most likely result to breakouts the morning after.

TRY: Pond's Men Acne Clear Oil Control Facial Foam, P190, Department Stores

  1. Toner

The basic three-step skin care routine also applies for your boyfriend! In fact, men tend to have more noticeable pores, so to minimize that, use toner after cleansing and before moisturizing.

TRY: Skin Food Tea Tree & Lavender Toner for Men, SM Megamall

  1. Moisturizer

Yup, you guessed it! He needs to moisturize his face after using toner, too. Just like us girls, the boys also need to keep their skin hydrated and moisturized to retain a youthful glow.

TRY: Sephora Energizing Moisture Gel, P1005, Sephora.ph

  1. Deodorant

Does your boyfriend love playing sports? Is he the type to stay outdoors all day? Let him, but make sure he takes underarm hygiene seriously, too.

TRY: Old Spice Red Zone Pure Sport Deo, P286, zalora.com.ph

  1. Sunscreen

Most guys believe that sunscreen should only be worn at the beach, and your boyfriend is quite possibly one of them. Set the record straight and let him know that his skin actually needs daily protection against harmful UV rays.

TRY: Belo Sun Expert Body Shield SPF60, P459.75, zalora.com.ph

  1. Mouthwash

This, we believe, is pretty self-explanatory.

TRY: Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash, Watsons

  1. Perfume

Because don't we all love guys who smell clean and fresh? Instant cool points!

TRY: Clinique Clinique Happy for Men, P3200, Rustan's Makati
