If you can’t find the time to do anything else, cleansing your skin is a must. Don’t worry, guys, cleansing is just a fancy word for washing your face. This should be done every morning and every evening before bedtime. Just because you can’t see the dirt and grime on your skin, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t there. Think about what you’re exposed to on a daily basis: pollution, car exhaust, cigarette smoke, even room deodorizers. All of these little particles can land on your skin and cause damage, so they must be washed away.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you can reach for that withered old bar soap. Ordinary soaps tend to be loaded with detergents and deodorizers, they and can be very harsh and dehydrating to the skin. A good facial cleanser is what you need. Men tend to have skin that’s a bit oilier than women’s, so find a cleanser that targets normal to oily skin for the best results. Remember, if you don’t cleanse your skin on a daily basis, the excess grime and oil could leave you with clogged pores and breakouts.
One of the very first places we start to notice the signs of aging is around the eyes. And, unfortunately, this is the very place that many men tend to neglect. The skin around our eyes lacks in both sweat and oil glands, making it highly susceptible to dehydration which can show itself as fine lines and wrinkles. The super soft, very thin layer of skin that surrounds our eyes can develop little expression lines that may grow into unsightly wrinkles quickly. So what should you do? Pick up a hydrating eye cream right away. All you need is a little dab of product under and around each eye to do the trick. It will help hydrate, smooth and protect your skin every day. Apply your eye cream every morning and evening before bedtime and after cleansing.
Moisturisers can make a world of difference in the appearance of a man’s skin. In fact, men tend to need moisturiser even more than most women do. This is because most men shave their faces. Every time you scrape that razor across your skin, you’re not only removing facial hair but you’re also removing necessary oils from your skin. Then what do you do? You probably slap on some alcohol-based aftershave lotion that burns the heck out of your skin. The alcohol then further dehydrates the skin. So, what do you need to combat this? Moisturiser. Choose a moisturiser that contains SPF to help protect you from ordinary exposure to the sun’s damaging rays. Unprotected sun exposure can lead to skin aging, fine lines, wrinkles and, worst of all, skin cancer.
See, gentlemen, it’s really that simple. If you incorporate these three simple steps into your daily regimen, you’ll definitely notice a difference in your appearance. It’s a fuss-free way towards healthy, handsome skin.
