This is something a lot of guys neglect and don’t take nearly as seriously as should be taken. Healthy skin compliments your overall appearance so it is of the upmost importance to maintain a good men’s skincare routine.
Ditch the soap
It is criminal to still be using soap bars in 2018.
Simply put, they do quite a lot of harm for what they do good. Soap bars are good at destroying the bacteria on your face and body but by the same token are far too harsh for your face. They will leave your face very dry which you will instantly feel and that can cause a lot of skin problems and break-outs.
My men’s skincare routine
First thing I do is use a tea-tree oil foam wash. This is gentler on the skin and avoids stripping the skin of its natural oils. An exfoliator may be used in replacement however you may find it best to use both. I myself use an exfoliator straight after the foam wash. An exfoliator will work to further destroying the bacteria build up overnight on your face.
Next up for my men’s skincare routine is to apply a toner. Highly effective for more oily skin and for those of you who are prone to blackheads. Using a piece of cotton wool to dab the toner on is the cleanest method of application. With that done, you can use a moisturiser as your final product. I shouldn’t have to stress how beneficial moisturising your skin can be, not only to keep it nice and healthy, but with the added benefit of leaving you with smoother skin. I would recommend an oil free moisturiser as it is more natural and hence safer for your skin.
This men’s skincare routine takes literally five minutes to do and will improve your skin for the better provided you remain consistent. At night, I would just use the foam wash alone. As a side note I would definitely recommend you change your pillow case regularly (once a week) to avoid a build up of bacteria on the surface of the pillow. Remember a pillow is something your face will be in contact with for around 7 hours!
