Gentlemen, let’s face it - you care about how you look. And the first place to start if you want to make a good impression, is with your skin. When it comes to skin care, men have traditionally kept it simple. While some men still are stuck on the old fashioned way by using a cheap rusty razor and an old, used bar of soap we can all agree that the modern man’s skin needs a lot more attention.
Although men’s skin is thicker than women’s, the basic elements of an effective skin care plan remains the same. There is no need for five layers of cream or weekly facial treatments. All you need to do is buy high quality, all natural products and your face will be forever grateful (and your partner will probably steal your products too..)
In fact, looking handsome has never been easier. I’m going to guide you in three simple steps to get the inside scoop on healthy handsome skin.
Step #1 - REFRESH WITH WATER
Hydration comes in three simple steps. Both internal and external, by pouring it up, splashing it down and moist it in.. Here’s how you do it properly.
Looking for that male model skin? Start by drinking at least 10 cups of water - daily. When you drink water, you cleanse your skin from dirt inside out and toxins are flushed out of your body. Hydration is a simple yet a vital way to care for your body.
Start your day by giving yourself a free adrenalin ice-cold kick by washing your face (or your whole body, if you dare..) with cold water. This is especially good if you have a puffy-looking skin that could use some tightening. Splashing cold water doesn’t only wake you up but also refreshes your skin. With that being said, washing your face too much will make it dry. So, no need to overdo it.
Next step is to look for a moisturiser packed with antioxidant to target fine lines for a younger and refreshed appearance. Facial Hydrating Booster is an intensive hydrating gel that boosts your skin’s moisture levels. Use your moisturize everyday, once or twice, to strengthen the top layer of your skin and to protect your skin from toxins.
Step #2 - USE OILThe one grooming hack every gentleman should know is to use oil for everything. Some people tend to think oil is bad thing. People with oily hair wants to wash it, daily and people with oily skin wants to neutralize it. So, how come that so many people are contradicting the fact that oil is your best friend? Nourishing oil is not only good for moisturizing your skin by hydrating and absorbing quickly, but also a great compliment for your hair, body, shave, bath, dry feet and beard. With that being said, oils can be used from head to toe.
Step #3 - SHAVE GENTLY
Last but definitely not least, shaving. We do it almost every day, yet there’s endless debate about how to do it right. Whether you’re shaving for the first time or you’re a pro, we have the products and the guidelines on how to shave your skin to a smoother one.
Properly prepare your face for shave by using an exfoliating Face Scrub infused with jojoba peeling spheres and BHA-acids to gently remove impurities, eliminate dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal. Now your free to start.. Use a gentle razor and choose between shaving soap, cream or gel. Do your research, learn about the different types of razors, creams, aftershave and brushes.When your done shaving wash your face with cool water and pat it dry. Make sure to use a face cream that’s specified to aftershave. Shaving removes up to two layers of your skin so make sure to protect and nourish your skin with a good moisturizer. Additional pro tip, Shave right after your shower. The warm water softens your skin, making it easier to pass the razor over your skin.
