Men’s skin care is often buried under all the attention paid to the Women’s market. That doesn’t mean men’s skin care is not important, we just need to focus in on what is really important for the fellas.
WHY IS MEN’S SKINCARE IMPORTANT?
We hear about women’s anti-aging and skincare routines on daily basis. But what about men’s skincare? It’s easy to overlook men’s needs in this respect; after all, in the past men have been told to just wash with a bar of soap, shave and go about their days. But the truth is that men’s skin needs just as much care as women’s, they may even need more specific and regular care. Think about all the strain constant shaving puts on the face. Men’s skincare is important to make sure you have the right first impression in the world.
Here are our three simple tips in order for men to get great skin:
-CLEAN UP RIGHT. We’re not talking about a standard bar of soap here like your grandfather used. The foundation of good skin is in a cleanser that allows skin to retain its natural oils and nourishes it while cleaning dirt and impurities. Deep pore cleansers can work wonders to help you look your best while keeping your skin clear – after all, no one likes blotchy, broken-out skin at any age. In a pinch, if you really must use just any old bar of soap, consider using a little moisturizer just to soothe skin.
-THIS WAY TO A GOOD SHAVE. Men shave on average five times a week, so making sure that your shaving routine isn’t irritating your skin is vital. Invest in a good razor that you feel comfortable with, whether it’s a straight-edge, safety or electronic. Make sure your skin is properly prepared to make sure that you have a smoother shave. Our 24K Men’s Pre-Shave Facial Serum helps soften the skin and hairs and cushion against the harshness of a razor. After you’re done, follow up with a moisturizing aftershave like our Aftershave Balm.
-HYDRATE! Everyone needs moisture, no matter how oily your skin is. Men’s faces often need more moisture than women’s, as the natural oils that keep your skin smooth are constantly stripped away by that regular shaving. Even if you’re preparing your skin well and using the right aftershave afterwards, you still need to maintain your moisture and skin’s nutrients throughout the day as you’re exposed to sun and pollutants. In order to avoid additional damage, pair your moisturizer with a sunscreen.
