Men’s Skin Care Routine
Whether you’re a true novice or an expert, I’d like to cover a few ideas of men’s skincare, which we practice at Beauty Box Man, on a regular basis. Most men think a multi-use product can do everything (as long as it contains charcoal). But the reality of skincare lies somewhere between that and keeping it simple. Due to the sheer volume of product options on the market, skincare can be daunting at best, and confusing at worst. We chose to keep it clean and fuss free at Beauty Box Man Men in general don’t want to waste time in figuring out what to use and when. But good skincare is one of the most powerful tools we have against most of the common issue’s men face on their faces, acne, wrinkle and sun damage.
It could mean the difference between someone saying “wow “you look great, as opposed to “oh” have you been getting enough sleep. Effective skincare takes more than just washing your face with whatever soap you have lying around and hoping for the best. It takes just a little commitment, consistency and care – but will pay off, without a doubt.
Building a skincare routine from ground zero, takes only a few simple steps, and you’ll be surprised by how much of a difference you’ll see after just a few weeks. If you’ve never washed your face with anything other than soap and never really used moisturiser. Then the following is aimed at you.
When we think of clean skin, were conditioned to expect a dry, squeaky clean feeling, that might feel good on your body, but that same feeling on your face is actually bad. It means your skins protective barrier is disrupted, and you’ve stripped away good oils that keep it moisturised. Instead, use a specific facial cleanser that contains moisturising ingredients. Use it twice a day (morning and night)
Step 2 – Eye cream
Eye cream is like the swiss army knife of a mans skin care routine, it’s a simple tool that can fix a whole lot of problems. Dark circles- it can help get rid of them, puffy bags from a great night? It can send them packing. Starting to see wrinkles and fine lines, eye cream can keep you looking fresh. Eye skin is thinner than on the rest of your face, so it needs more concentrated ingredients, and tends to loose moisture quickly and easily, start using an eye cream, morning and night, after cleansing, even if you don’t do anything else ( but you should do other stiff too, so keep reading )
Step 3 – Moisturise.
Most men say they don’t wear moisturiser because they don’t like the way it feels on their face, totally understand, and totally agree…but find a moisturiser you can tolerate, this is why we made our own at Beauty Box Man, to combat all these negative results. We provide a lightweight formula, and easy to fit into your daily routine Wearing a moisturiser at the very least will keep your skin from feeling dry, and help it maintain moisture, that will keep it looking good for years to come.
As we move on in men’s skincare, I will devise a plan for intermediate, and advanced levels. But for now, we have covered 3 basic steps
A step we can all take into consideration is SPF (sun protection factor).We should all be wearing a sunscreen every day, ideally a face cream with SPF factor is fabulous, this is why we created one, for efficiency and safety to skin. UV rays from the sun not only cause skin cancer but are also the biggest factor in our skins aging. It’s a really good habit to get into
