Easy Step-by-Step Guide for a Men’s Skincare Routine
Taking care of your skin is starting to become more popular for men. Here is a step-by-step guide for an easy men’s skincare routine.
Men’s skincare routines have finally become the norm, so here’s where to start.
Wash & Exfoliate
The first step in all men’s skincare routines is to wash and exfoliate your skin. Believe it or not, your skin isn’t invincible. Over time, dirt, grime, and sweat get trapped in your skin, which can cause acne and other skin irritations. The best way to combat these skin irritants is by washing your skin daily and exfoliating a few times a week. We recommend the Ordinary Squalane Cleanser and the Clinique Deep Pore and Cleanse.
Now that your skin is squeaky clean, your next step is to moisturize. You can moisturize your face with lotion or facial cream. If you are in a bind, you can use any type of lotion you have at home, but dermatologists recommend using a cream that is designed for the face. You should moisturize your face every day after washing. We recommend Kiel’s Ultra Facial Cream.
There are additional products you can use after washing and moisturizing, which can be overwhelming. Stick to an easy serum that has vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid protect skin cells from damage, even skin tone, and enhance skin radiance. We recommend the Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum.
Just like we mentioned before, your skin isn’t invincible, especially under the sun. Overexposure to the sun can cause sunburns, dark spots, freckles, and even cancer. The skin on your face is extremely sensitive, especially to UV rays. Protect your skin by applying sunblock daily. Also, remember to apply even on cloudy days. You can still get burned, even when the sun is hiding behind clouds. We recommend the First Aid Beauty Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen.
The final step left in this easy routine — night cream. You’ve taken care of your skin all day, so now it's time for night. At night, your skin is resting and isn’t exposed to sun, sweat, or dirt, so it’s the perfect time to focus on it. Use night cream daily for extra moisture and to help repair any skin damage. We recommend the Tula 24-7 Moisture Hydrating Day & Night Cream.
Fellas, now that these steps are laid out, it’s time to start working on your own men’s skincare routine.
