The stereotype for men as ‘rough and tough’ who remain unconcerned about their basic skin care is now subsiding. Men have started taking into consideration their skin care as they would consider their looks. Here are a few tips how and why men should pay attention to this aspect of their personality as well.
Why Men Should Cleanse and Moisturize?
Generally men spend most of their time outdoors, as compared to women. This also means men are more exposed to pollution and impurities, damaging their skin intensely. Lack of care just adds on to the damage and worsens the condition. Cleansing helps remove the dirt that clings to the face and sanitizes it. Moisturizing is the next essential step that neither men nor women should skip. Moisturizing treats dry and dull skin, but that is not all it also retains or locks the natural moisture in your skin.
How to Cleanse and Moisturize?
Cleansing and moisturizing are two basic steps that do not involve any science. You can use standard fragrance-free foam cleansers for washing your face. Avoid using bar soaps as they dry out your skin ripping off the essential oils produced by the glands. For moisturizing you can use a men’s face moisturizer that suits your skin type. Moisturizers with SPFs perform as sun screens
as well, thus saving you from the hassle of sun blocks.
It is recommended to carry out these steps before going to bed, as it is night time when your skin breathes and repairs itself.
