Women aren’t alone in their quest for youthful skin! Taking pride in one’s appearance and knowing more on one’s skin health is a man’s (guy’s) forte too. Here are 4 simple tips that demystify the unknown land that lurks somewhere between a razor, Listerine and several half used speed sticks.
Clean Skin: The first order of business is – clean skin. Because we are exposed to pollutants and toxins on a daily basis, a deep cleanser works best. Knowing one’s skin profile is always helpful when looking for the perfect product, as our skin is unique to us like our fingerprint; different skin types need different products. You can go to mySkin.com - create your profile, connect with SkinTwins (TM) to see what cleanser works best for your skin.
A Good Shave: Sensitive skin, acne and razor burns all come from the wear and tear caused by improper shaving. Using proper tools and shaving in the direction of hair growth helps. Premium shave gels with added moisturizers are important, as they soothe irritated skin.
Tone Thy Skin: A toner hasn’t been recognized in the lexicon of men’s skin care but it is important . A toner rejuvenates tired looking skin. Skin becomes much firmer and refined through the removal of bacteria and by decreasing the size of the pores.
Soften It Up: A moisturizer is the finale for total skin mastery. SPF (sun protection factor) in moisturizers protects the skin, maintaining and nurturing it, keeping it supple . Moisturizing the skin should be in your daily ‘to-do’ list!
Last but not the least, refined sugars – stay away from them in your coffee breaks! They have been found to cause wrinkles and premature aging.
