The Men’s Skincare Guide Every Man Needs

11 Aug

mens-skincare-guideSkincare is not just for girls and women only. Men deserve to have healthy skin too! Men’s skincare should not be neglected.

After 66 years and 9 years of living with me, I finally got my boyfriend to wash his face every night. In fairness to him, as soon as I brought it up he started a routine, but it got me thinking—how many men neglect their skincare?

Having a good skincare regimen can help you prevent oily skin, dry skin, ingrown facial hairs, and acne, just to name a few benefits. Here is a skincare guide for men who want to keep their skin healthy for years to come.

Wash Before Shaving

It is imperative that you wash your face before shaving to prevent ingrown hairs. Washing before shaving also helps to set up the good habit of cleansing your face every morning.
Get an Actual Cleanser

And by “wash your face,” I don’t mean with ordinary soap. Normal bar soap is much too harsh on the skin on your face and can easily dry it out. No, you don’t have to pick a cleanser that smells like flowers and frills. There are plenty of unscented, effective cleansers out there.

Cleanse Twice a Day

For most people, washing their skin once at morning and at night is just enough without drying out the skin. If you went to the gym or worked outside any, you may want to use a Juicy Bamboo cloth to gently rub away the dirt, sweat, and grime without being too harsh.

Moisturize

To keep your skin healthy, you will need to apply moisturizer as well. Most people know that you need to moisturize to keep your skin from dying out, but if your skin is oily, you especially need to moisturize. It becomes oily to overcompensate for a lack of moisture, which causes acne. A quick fix is to moisturize at night before going to bed.

Apply Daily Sunscreen

Everyone regardless of gender needs to apply something with SPF in it every day to the face. Using daily sunscreen does more than just prevent early aging—it protects your skin from sun damage and even skin cancer.
