While many skincare products are directed towards women, taking good care of your skin is just as important for men. To start a skincare regime that works best for you, it’s important to figure out your skin type and then tailor your products accordingly. A good way to do that is to visit your dermatologist or do research on your own. Below are a few basic steps that will help you get started on a skincare journey that’ll keep your skin looking vibrant and youthful for years to come.
Choose a good cleanser.
It’s not enough to just wash your face, you need to make sure you’re using the right stuff. Don’t just resort to body wash, hand soap, or whatever else is in the bathroom, because chances are those products are drying out your skin. Instead add a gentle cleanser to your daily routine.
Using a gentle non-alcohol based toner after you cleanse will both give your skin a shot of hydration and rid it of dead skin cells. This primes your skin’s surface, increasing the effectiveness of your skincare and shaving products.
Don’t forget to exfoliate
Doing so will help rid your skin of excess oil and dead skin cells, which will in turn prevent in-grown hairs and acne and allow for a closer shave.
Use a serum
Serums contain a high concentration of nutrients that help repair your skin by targeting your biggest concerns. Using your favorite serum in congruence with your NanoPen make its active ingredients 20x more effective.
Don’t skip the eye cream
The thin skin around your eyes is one of the first areas of your face to show aging. Using an eye cream daily will help hydrate your skin, combating fine lines while also targeting puffiness and dark circles.
Not sure which type of facial moisturizer is right for you? Check out our blog post. Applying moisturizer directly after your shower or shave will help seal in the moisture. Be sure to use after-shave to hydrate and soothe after shaving. Again, be sure to choose an after-shave that doesn’t contain alcohol because that will dry out your skin.
Apply sunscreen daily
90% of aging is caused by sun damage. Even if you’re not spending the day at the beach, apply an SPF of 30 or higher. Buying a daily moisturizer that contains SPF will help kill two birds with one stone.
Splurge on your shave
Buying the right razor is an important investment in your face, especially since most men shave frequently throughout the week. Getting a razor with too many blades might seem like a good idea, but getting too close of a shave can actually cause razor burn. Also, shaving in the shower or right after will help open up your pores and soften hairs. And don’t forget the shaving cream to protect your skin.
