Easy Skincare Tips for Men
With hectic schedules, it’s not too uncommon for most us to run out the door every morning after a quick shower and a fast cup of coffee. Even so, taking care of your skin is important, and if you include just the basics in your morning routine, it can do wonders for your overall skin health.
That said, here are a few easy skincare tips to throw into your morning routine that will keep your skin healthy for years to come
Wash Your Face
Washing your face with cold water in the morning is the perfect way to wake yourself up and get ready for the day. Besides giving you that cold jolt you need, washing your face is a necessity if you want healthy skin. Throughout the day, your face is subject to dirt, grime, oils, and other environmental factors that lead to breakouts and greasy skin. To combat this, wash your face with a gentle cleanser morning and night to remove excess oil or grease and leave your skin fresh and clean.
On top of ridding your skin of excess oil, dirt, grime, and anything else that might be calling your skin home, you need to focus on the dead skin cells that accumulate. Your skin is constantly in a cycle of living and dying, with new layers growing and the old ones flaking off. A good body buffer for the shower will gently scrub away these dead skin cells, and when combined with a nourishing body wash, will deeply clean your pores. Also, the scrubbing can even help uproot any ingrown hairs you have as the cleansing body wash works its way below the surface.
To prevent dry, flaky skin, you need to lock in moisture. It’s best to use a moisturizer right after washing your face or body, so your skin stays hydrated all day long. Look for a lotion or moisturizer that uses natural ingredients with a mild fragrance and consider your skin type as well. Some men have naturally oily skin while others have sensitive skin, dry skin, or are somewhere in-between. Choosing the right products for your skin will ensure you’re maximizing the benefits of the product. A body wash with moisturizing properties can also help your skin.
Wear Sunscreen When Outside
Too much of a good thing—like soaking up too many rays—can lead to damaged skin and wrinkles. While slathering yourself in sunscreen every morning might not sound ideal, it’s an important step to keep your skin healthy for years to come. Look for moisturizers or lotions with SPF protection built-in so you’re getting more done with fewer products. Even if you’re not too concerned now, in the years when wrinkles start to become a real factor, your body will thank you for taking care of it with a quality skincare routine.
Get a Shower Tool That Does It All
If hearing all of these tips makes you stress about the time it will take in the morning, don’t sweat. Instead, pick up a body buffer from a company like Spongellé that lets you hydrate, cleanse, and exfoliate all at once while you shower.
