Five Essential Skincare Tips For Men by froz(m): 5:55pm On Oct 26, 2017
The act of looking good is not only for women. You get up in the morning, take a bath with soap and water, and then find your way out of the door. Sometimes, you remember to rub lotion on your knuckles and face to avoid looking too “ashy”. If this is you, you definitely need to step up your skincare game. It doesn’t matter if the ladies tell you that your face is fresh or not.

No, this is not a guide to filling up your bathroom with unmentionable cleansers and creams or eight-step night and morning routines. This is more of an addition to the normal things you already do.

Apart from drinking lots of water and watching your diet, here are five skincare tips you should always keep in mind for a better, healthier look.

1. Cleanse your face

You probably just scoffed and rolled your eyes, expecting this step. But the reality is that men are often guilty of doing too much or too little. They may be taking really hot baths and using harsh soaps on their faces, which is wrong. It makes your skin dry and makes you look older. Use a gentle cleanser to remove all the dirt and oil that may have accumulated during the day, especially cleansers that moisturise as they cleanse.

2. Moisturise your face

Facial hair can look incredibly sexy on a guy, especially when their faces don’t feel like sandpaper to the touch. Moisturising daily will give you soft, kissable skin. Sounds great, doesn’t it? So never skip the facial moisturiser.

3. Use a proper razor

Stop buying cheap razors. Just stop it. A lot of men shave five times a week. How do you shave? A quality razor can go a long way into preventing bumps and even lasting a lifetime, so choose your weapon carefully. Look for a razor that fits your skin sensitivity and beard coarseness. Also be sure to slather on a moisturising shaving gel to protect your skin while you shave. Also, avoid razors with several blades as they put you more at risk of getting ingrown hairs because the extra blades pull the hairs too deep below the skin. Shave after a warm shower to open up your pores and for the hairs to be softer from all the steam. Your face will surely thank you for it.

4. Aftershave is your friend

It’s your best friend, really. A good aftershave soothes, hydrates and seals in the skin after a nice shave with a quality razor. Make sure it’s alcohol-free, though. Alcohol dries your skin and you wouldn’t want that to happen.

5. Use sunscreen every day

Yes, you heard right. Sunscreen. No matter how popping your melanin is, how many face caps you wear a day or how much you believe in the #BlackDontCrack movement, always be sure to protect your skin from sun damage. Finding a moisturiser that contains SPF 30 or higher will make things much easier for your lovely skin and you should never leave home without it. Skin irritation, redness, extra blood vessels and possible skin cancer are a no-no and your black will definitely crack if you don’t take good care of it. Plain and simple.
