Women are not the only one who needs skin care tips but men, you need it too! Only cleansing and moisturising is not enough to keep male skin healthy and clean. To avoid dry, dull and brittle skin you need to follow this easy skin care routine.
We provide you with a list of beauty tips for men that can prove to be very helpful:
# CTM IS ESSENTIAL
Like women, the CTM routine (cleansing, toning and moisturising) is just as important for men. They are exposed to pollution, car exhaust, cigarette smoke and other pollutants which damage the skin. Also, men tend to have oilier and thicker skin than women. So you need to use a good facial cleanser that works on all kinds of skin.
# ALWAYS APPLY SUNSCREEN
Another thing men tend to ignore is the sunscreen. You must apply a sunscreen with minimum SPF 30. It is not the heat that causes tanning but the sun rays that spoils the colour and texture of your skin. To minimize tanning, apply it on your face as well as hands. Make sure you apply the sunscreen 15 minutes before heading out, so it gets absorbed better.
# AVOID EYE WRINKLES
The skin around the eyes lacks in sweat and oil glands; making it highly susceptible to under-eye dehydration. This manifests as fine lines and wrinkles eventually. To prevent this, dab a little hydrating eye cream around your peepers every morning and before bedtime. Choose from the various men’s eye creams available in the market.
# APPLY LIP BALM
You need to pay attention to your lips as well. They also tan and get chapped and can look bad. A good lip balm is a must to cure all these problems; it also makes them soft and supple. Also, did you know that lips age with time? Look closely in the mirror, and you will notice the fine lines. As the years go by, the lips start looking chapped. Men don’t have the advantage of makeup to hide this effect. You should always apply a lip balm with a high SPF during the day, and a hydrating and nourishing lip balm at night.
# KEEP YOUR BEARD CLEAN
It’s perfectly fine to sport a beard, if you think that makes a style statement. But ensure that you keep it clean, so that it doesn’t cause itchiness. Simply follow a few basic hygiene measures. The best thing to do is to wash your beard with a face wash or shampoo. You may also apply some beard oil with fragrance after washing it.
