We know that most men skimp on skincare and skincare tips in general, but any guy needs to get into the habit of taking care of his skin.

Skincare tips for men

Rise and ‘clean’ 

Cleansing in the morning and evening will remove dirt and excess oil that has accumulated during the day. It is also imperative to cleanse your face after a heavy workout. Pick a cleanser suited to your skin type and focus on oiler areas, such as your chin, nose, and forehead.

Shave smart

In the quest to avoid painful razor burn, use high-grade products designed just for shaving. Make sure that you have the right razor for your desired cut and a foam or gel to keep the skin protected. Play around with different looks to see which works best for you.

Soothe your skin 

A hydrating cream or balm is the perfect way to end off your shaving routine, as it will soothe and restore moisture to freshly shaved skin. Shaving aside, you should be using a good moisturizer for the morning and night. Add in an eye cream or gel to diminish dark circles and puffiness.

Scrub up and gently

Exfoliation isn’t only for your skincare-obsessed lady. Try adding a weekly scrub to your routine for fresh and smooth skin. Plus, exfoliation is great just before you shave as it helps prevent ingrown hairs.

Power and protection

Guard skin from harmful UVB and aging UVA rays with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Many moisturizers have sun protection built-in, but check the packaging and remember this isn’t enough. If you’re going to be outdoors, layer a lightweight sunscreen over your moisturizer in the morning.
