Guys, what does your skin care routine consist of?
A splash of water and a bit of soap do not comprise a skin care routine. But don’t worry, you won’t need a bunch of products or much time to get it done. Here, we’ve compiled the essential skin care tips for men to give you great, healthy-looking skin.
Give your face a proper cleanse.
It is important to give your face a proper wash, taking time to massage the cleanser into the skin. Use a product that is gentle but effective. To make this process even simpler, wash in the shower with a multipurpose product like our all natural body wash. It works on all skin types and is effective at soothing minor skin irritations including razor burn, dry skin and eczema.
Invest in a good razor.
Not all razors are created equal. A quality razor can last a lifetime, and they are also made to suit various needs. You can choose one to fit your skin sensitivity level, beard coarseness, and so on. If you do go the drugstore route know that more blades don’t necessarily mean a better shave (despite what the commercials tell you). They are actually more likely to give you razor burn or ingrown hairs because the extra blades pull the hairs below the skin a little too deep.
Even with a quality razor and products, shaving irritates the skin. After-shave works to hydrate, soothe, and heal. And did you know that our all natural skin gel can be used as an after-shave? It works to reduce redness, ingrown hairs and irritation, while nourishing and moisturizing the skin.
Although listed fourth, moisturizing has to be number one when it comes to skin care tips for men. This is because it’s a step that most men skip. Look for a moisturizer that is unscented, light, and non-greasy. Better yet, don’t even invest in more product. Our skin gel not only works as a great after-shave, you can apply it to the rest of your face to get the necessary moisture your skin needs. Once it absorbs (which happens super-fast) there is no scent.
No matter the time of year, when you’re outside (or near windows) your skin is exposed to UV rays. This leads to damaged skin, sunburn, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Applying sunscreen as part of your morning routine will help slow down any signs of aging while protecting the health of you and your skin.
