Gone are the days when skin care was a ‘women only’ territory.
With a growing market of personal care products, it is time for men to step up their grooming game too.
Having clear and healthy skin is a basic requirement irrespective of gender.
Good skin is aesthetically appealing and gives a certain level of confidence.
Don’t know how to get there? We’ve got you covered! No need to visit a dermatologist to get that perfect skin, just follow these Top 7 Easy Grooming Tips For All Men to get a drool-worthy skin.
1. Use a Good Cleanser
Cleansing your skin is one of the most important steps to achieve clear skin. Cleaning your skin daily does not require a lot of time and effort. A simple way to follow this easy yet effective step is to choose a face wash according to your skin type. Ideally, go for a face wash which is soap free and has natural ingredients. Follow it up with a quick splash of rose water or aloe-vera gel for a fresh look.
2. Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliating your skin twice a week will help to remove dead skin cells and it also stimulates blood circulation which gives a healthy glow to your skin.
3. Try these DIY Scrubs
Do not have a scrub at handy? Make your own by following these steps:
- Mix coconut oil with sugar together and apply it to your skin in circular motions.
- Mix 1 teaspoon of honey with 1 teaspoon of coffee and a few drops of olive oil.
- Apply this for a few minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water.
4. After-Shave Care
Shaving is an essential part of every man’s daily routine but what most men omit is using an after shave. Applying this liquid to a freshly shaved face will help to close your pores. The antiseptic aftershave reduces skin irritation and prevents infection from cuts.
You can also apply a little bit of almond or olive oil after shaving, to help lock in the moisture.
5. Don’t Skip the Sunscreen
Anyone who knows skin care will ALWAYS stress the importance of using sunscreen. Most men don’t realise this and skip this step. Sun damage over the years can trigger the ageing process and even cause dark spots and uneven skin tone. Using a sunscreen with SPF 40 or more before heading out will shield your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
6. Always Moisturize
Using a moisturizer on a regular basis will keep skin healthy and smooth. Pick a good quality moisturizer which suits your skin type. There are many moisturizers and creams available in the market specifically for men. If you have an oily skin type, go for a gel based or light-weight cream.
7. Indulge in Face Masks
For extra nourishment, try a face mask once a week. Depending on your skin type, go for a mask that boosts hydration or controls excessive oil secretion. This de-stress pack will give you firmer and smooth skin.
