The skin is the largest organ in our body. No wonder we spend more and more time taking care of it, not only from the sun, but also from acne, aging signs, and blemishes. But culturally, men tend to neglect this area of self-care.
Maybe it is because it sounds confusing and exhausting, and men’s products are branded as a quick solution to a specific problem. But we are here to tell you that you don’t need a ten-step routine to have healthy skin.
There is so much more for you in this beauty realm! You can start with these three basic steps:
Cleanse your skin twice a day
Generally, men don’t use makeup, but that doesn’t mean the skin is clean. Throughout the day, we accumulate dead skin cells, bites of smog pollution, and body-produced grease.
To avoid breakouts and properly use skin products, you’ll need a clean canvas. Wash your face with warm water and a gentle cleanser twice a day, morning and night. Pat dry your face, never rub against it!
Moisturize the skin
With clean and fresh skin, proceed to apply a light moisturizer all over the face, ears, and neck. Do it softly, in round motions. Always remember, face skin is sensitive, and you need to be gentle.
The moisturizer always comes after cleansing, repeat on mornings and nights. Don’t know which product to choose? Go for the one suited for your skin type. Here’s a helpful guide.
Exfoliate twice a week
Once or twice a week -again, it depends on your skin type, you can use a scrub to remove the dirt on deeper layers. This will help healthier skin cells reveal themselves, improving your complexion.
While you can choose any moment of the week for this step, exfoliating is a great ally to preventing ingrown and breakouts caused by shaving. Scrub the beard or mustache area before shaving for smoother, cleaner results.
And of course, a crucial part of any person, whether or routine: use sunscreen! Even on cloudy days. Apply the product over your fingers and then massage it softly into the face, ears, and neck. Reapply every four hours if you are outside.
