In real life, however, persuading your spouse or little brother to put on sunscreen (or even wash their face) can feel like an uphill battle. Sure, there isn’t as much pressure on men to look perfect, but still…a little face serum never hurt anyone.
Celebs like John Mayer, David Beckham, Chadwick Boseman and Olympian Gus Kentworthy are here to take some of the weight off our shoulders with their beauty must-haves. We found out the products they use, so you can give yourself the Hollywood heartthrob treatment or share it with the men in your life.
Although the Grammy-winning artist was probably joking about his new occupation, he shared four products that you shouldn’t laugh at: Natura Bissé Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum, Extreme Moisturizer and Hand Cream and the brand’s Transolift Neck Cream.
Ranging between $80 and $365, his skin-care routine doesn’t come cheap. Yet the brand promises the technology used to create the line, as well as its effective anti-aging properties make it worth the investment.
If that doesn’t convince you, John says, “This really is my favorite stuff.”

“For men, it’s all about the skin and to keep him looking flawless, I used VENN Age-Reversing All-In-One Concentrate,” his makeup artist Saisha Beecham said in an email. “Not only does it streamline a skincare routine saving me tons of prep time, it instantly hydrates the skin inside and out – leaving it fresh and glowing and ready for the red carpet.”
The great thing about the Black Panther’s product is that it’s one step. As a serum and moisturizer, guys only have to remember one thing, rather than trying to string together a number of products every morning.
The line includes 13 products to “upgrade every step of the modern-man’s routine,” including David’s favorites: the Seriously Groomed Beard & Hair Balm, Smooth Back Shaping Pomade and the Greater Look Face Moisturizer. And, they’re available now, exclusively at Ulta.

“Every morning in the winter I use Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Moisturizer with SPF 15,” he says. “It’s a great base layer of moisture and sun protection in the morning. If I’m out in the sun without the balaclava, though, I’ll use a higher SPF product—COOLA’s SPF 30 Unscented Moisturizer.”
Then, at night, he applies La Mer’s Soft Crème night moisturizer: “It’s necessary, especially with all the flights I take, which also dehydrate the skin.”
