When we typically think of skin care, we typically think of women buying overpriced creams that claim to work wonders that will likely never happen. And the last thing we think of is a big burly man shopping for face wash and creams. However, as one of the most important ways to take care of your body and your skin, having a strict skin care routine will not only help your skin stay smooth but it will help it stay younger looking as well. Here are three things that every man should incorporate into their skin care routine.
Leave that gross bar of soap behind and opt to shave with a rich, lathering shave cream. Shave cream is designed to moisturize, hydrate, and protect the skin during the shaving process— helping to eliminate things like razor burn and bumps. If you have sensitive skin, look for a shave cream that has ingredients like shea butter or aloe in it, these will help to calm your skin.
That same bar of soap that you used to use to shave your face with and the one you currently use to wash your body with, should not be used on your face. Bar soaps tend to strip your skin of natural oils that are designed to keep your skin hydrated and breakout free. When caring for your face, make sure you pick up a designated face wash to help you rid your skin of impurities that built up either throughout the day or during the night.
Face lotion doesn’t have to smell like roses or come in a jar that looks like it came out of a Victorian home, in face face lotion can be purchased at a drugstore for a fairly decent price. After you shave and wash your face, simply apply a small amount of face lotion across your face in order to lock in moisture and prevent your skin from cracking or drying out.
