The words “skin care routine” can be off-putting for many men.
You might think of the large selection of serums and creams that the women in your life use each day and want to run in the other direction.
But the right skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated. Read on for some tips for starting the best men’s skin care routine without spending hours slathering your face with creams.
How to Start a Skin Care Routine
A skin care routine is essential for any man looking for smooth, bright skin that’s acne and wrinkle-free.
These four simple steps are all you need to kickstart your new skin care routine.
Each hour, we touch our faces about 23 times. Each touch transfers dirt and bacteria from our hands to our skin.
Cleansing in the morning starts your day off strong, allowing your products to better absorb into the skin. At the end of the day, cleansing clears away the dirt from a long day to keep the pores clean.
Most people should look for a gentle cleanser that they can use morning and night. If you struggle with blackheads, wash your face using a cleanser with salicylic acid to clear up your skin.
After cleansing, you will want to apply a serum or cream treatment to address any skin concerns you have. The right treatment for you will vary depending on the skin care issues you are hoping to address.
If you are looking for something to reduce the appearance of fine lines or prevent ageing, anti-ageing serum is the right treatment for you.
To help clear acne, look out for products with acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil, or retinol.
After applying any serums or creams, it’s important to moisturize. Moisturizing your skin helps to protect it from dirt and environmental toxins that can cause acne and signs of ageing.
Using sunscreen every day can reduce ageing by as much as 24%. Use a moisturizer with SPF each morning to keep your skin youthful.
And don’t forget to moisturize your beard! Beard oil is a quick and easy step to add to your routine to keep your beard looking shiny and healthy.
4. Face Mask
Sometimes, your usual cleanser doesn’t give you the deep clean that you need to keep your skin looking its best.
Treat yourself to a face mask once a week to give your pores a deep clean and keep your skin looking fresh. Bonus points: it’s the perfect excuse to take a long bath.
If you have dry skin, you might want to try a moisturizing mask. Some face masks are multi-purpose and will cleanse while moisturizing.
