Skin care is important for men as well. Whether you’re looking to fight against blemishes or wrinkles or you just want to keep your skin looking and feeling smooth, skin care is a healthy habit you’ll want to invest in. And the good thing is that it’s simpler than you think! Here are a few ways for any guy to take care of his skin.
Wash your face.
It’s simple, but it works. When you wake up and before you go to sleep, wash your face with cold water and a facial cleanser like our YOUTH® Luminous Gel Oil Cleanser. A good face wash can help get rid of dirt, excess oils, and dead skin cells that make your face look dull. And if you really want a deep clean, wash with an exfoliating scrub once a week, which will help stimulate the growth of new skin cells.
Use a moisturizer.
After you wash your face, you should moisturize it. Applying a moisturizer while your skin is slightly damp helps seal in the moisture. If you have oily skin or you are prone to breakouts, look for a water-based moisturizer.
Don’t forget sun protection.
The sun is responsible to show visible aging, and it can damage your skin even on cloudy days. So, it’s a good idea to apply a sunscreen every day. You can simplify this step by getting a moisturizer that has an SPF rating, like YOUTH® Age Defense Mineral Moisturizer.
Protect your skin while shaving.
When your shaving habits are too harsh on your skin, you get bumps and burns. Thankfully, there are many ways you can avoid irritating your skin with your razor. Washing and exfoliating your face before you shave softens and lifts the hair to make shaving easier. Make sure to use a moisturizing shaving cream and shave in the direction of hair growth, trying not to stretch the skin.
One of the many reasons your body needs water is to keep the skin hydrated. Drinking water throughout the day is good for both the health and the appearance of your skin. If you’re dehydrated, your skin is more likely to appear dull and dry.
Eat your fruits and veggies.
Mom always said so, and with good reason: Fruits and vegetables are a powerful source of nutrition and can be especially important for skin health. Fruits and vegetables supply antioxidants to help fight free radicals that play a role in inflammation, sun damage, and faster skin aging.
Get plenty of sleep.
Sleep offers many health benefits, like allowing your skin cells to do some repair after the day’s wear and tear. And getting seven to eight hours of sleep on a regular basis will give them plenty of time to do it.
