HERE’S A BASIC SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR MEN.
We know, men, you care about your skin! The skincare industry has long focused only on women and includes long complicated routines. In this blog, we’re trying to put up a very basic skincare routine for men for long-lasting results. Simple steps to combat breakouts, shaving irritations and lines coming out of nowhere. Brush up your game and try this for over a month and you’ll see the results.
USE SPF 15+ SUNSCREEN EVERY DAY
UV rays cause skin damage which not only causes premature ageing but also makes the skin dull. To protect the skin from UV rays use sunscreen daily in the day while going out and use it every hour when working outside.
KNOW YOUR SKIN TYPE
Knowing your skin type is necessary to use the skin products out there in the market. To find your skin type see your forehead and the straight line down your chin at the end of the day.
Your skin is oily if it’s shining.
Your skin is dry if it’s matte.
If it’s visible clearly and you can’t notice it then it’s in between.
For every skin type, there are different types of products as the care regime needs to be different.
DRINK AT LEAST 2L WATER DAILY
Drinking at least 2 liters of water everyday keeps your skin hydrated and clear. Getting inadequate water has a direct impact on the skin by making it dry and flaked in the long run. Don’t wait till you feel thirsty, try to get the water bottle and make it a habit to not drink less than 2 litres of water a day.
CLEANSE YOUR FACE TWICE DAILY
With the daily travel and polluted air, our skin pores are filled up with pollutants and oil starts building up. So cleaning your face to clear up the pores is as necessary at night as it is in the morning. Use warm water to wet the face and cleanse it gently with foam and use a soft towel to avoid any irritation in the skin. This will help you keep your skin clean.
APPLY MOISTURISER DAILY
Moisturising lotion provides the skin enough hydration for the day to keep its glow and keep the dullness away from the skin. If you work outside more or travel more and feel dullness in the skin after your work or travel, wash your skin gently and apply your moisturiser again to keep it shiny and hydrated.
EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN TWICE IN A WEEK
Exfoliating the skin helps in cleansing the pores from within and gives a fresh feeling to the skin. Be gentle if you have sensitive skin and don’t rub too much for it can tear your skin giving way to bacteria and pollutants. It also helps in gentle shave and keeping your skin smooth and shiny.
All the above mentioned routine steps might seem a little off or tiring at first but this is the most basic thing you can do for your skin to maintain its health. Try out maintaining this simple routine where you can also use some productivity applications like Habitify, Productive to track your routine and care for your skin properly. Do remember, men also need to care for their skin as much as women do. So, don’t hesitate and start your daily routine now.
