Thankfully, us men get off pretty lightly when it comes to the amount of grooming and beauty maintenance we require to look our best compared to women. However, there are still steps we should take to maintain skin elasticity and a clear complexion, so here are our skincare routine tips for men:
After splashing warm water on the face twice a day, use a face scrub as a daily exfoliator for sensitive skin to remove dead skin, dirt and oil. The gentle exfoliation will revive the skin, and leave it feeling smoother. Finish with a splash of cold water to close the pores. It’s a good idea to use a product that provides moisture to the skin, particularly during the winter.
If you suffer from problem skin such as adult acne, apply a Benzyl Peroxide spot treatment to problem areas – you an find one at a pharmacy.
If you suffer from blocked pores and problem skin, steam your face once a week after exfoliating your skin. If your gym does not have a steam room, lean over a bowl of boiling water for 10 minutes, with a towel covering your head. This helps unblock pores, removing dirt and impurities, helping you achieve clearer skin.
Apply a good quality shaving cream to get the best results, followed by a post-shave product afterwards to help minimize irritation.
Always apply a moisturiser appropriate for your skin type after cleansing and shaving.
Use an eye cream or special eye roll-on product to help reduce puffiness and dark circles. Apply by patting into the skin with the ring finger, rather than rubbing or pulling the delicate skin around the eye.
