01. Facial skin care tips for men
Gone are the days when being unkempt was a sign of masculinity. Women desire a well-kept and groomed man, but you don't have to get mani-pedis for this. And you can find a lot of information on beauty tips for women, but beauty tips for men, well, not as much. Only cleansing and moisturizing is not enough to keep male skin healthy and clean. To avoid dry, dull and brittle skin you need to follow this easy skin care regime. We provide you with a list of beauty tips for men that can prove to be very helpful:
02. CTM IS ESSENTIAL
Like women, the CTM routine (cleansing, toning and moisturising) is just as important for men. They are exposed to pollution, car exhaust, cigarette smoke and other pollutants on a daily basis, which damage the skin. Also, men tend to have oilier and thicker skin than women. They need to use a good facial cleanser that works on all kinds of skin.
Cleansing is essential to sanitize your skin and eliminate dead skin cells. Use mild cleanser that cleanses the skin without drying it. Men are lazy to wash their face before going to the bed and that causes comedone. Cleansing is must to avoid whitehead, blackhead and acne. And for toning, you can even use a basic rose water potion.
03. Scrub Up Nicely
While a face scrub should be one of your key products whatever your skin type, they’re a great way of keeping you and your complexion looking fresh as a daisy. Using small ‘polishing’ particles which vary depending on your chosen product, face scrubs help to remove haggard looking dead skin cells to reveal the new, fresh complexion underneath. Simple right? So just by buffing away the top layers of dull looking skin you’ll be left with the fresh faced glow of someone who’s been in bed by 9.30pm every night even if you haven’t!
04. Glow With The Flow
Glowing skin isn’t just reserved for pregnant women, it’s also a by-product of a nice healthy complexion! Some guys are unlucky and suffer from a dull, ‘pasty’ outlook all year round, and for others it can be the result of sleep or nutrient deprivation – but having a healthy glow can elude even the most savvy modern gent, particularly those with a lighter skin tone. Yet again the grooming world had served up a cunning little healthy-look shortcut in the form of tinted moisturiser! But tan-a-phobics don’t panic – we’re talking the subtle bronze of demigods David Beckham and David Gandy rather than the full on bronzed look of Joey Essex.
05. Support Your Skin From The Inside
It’s no secret that a balanced diet, plenty of exercise, an increased water intake and equal amounts of rest makes a huge difference in your overall health, and the health of your skin is no different. To try and make it as simple as possible to improve your skin health through your diet I’ve broken down the key health points which relate directly to the health of your skin. They may seem obvious, but bearing these simple lifestyle tips in mind will work wonders for your skin.
06. Drink 2-3 litres of water a day
Dehydration doesn’t just leave you with a dry mouth, it also leaves your skin parched and thirsty for natural moisture. Try filling a 2 litre bottle of water at your desk, or in your man bag and challenge yourself to drink it by the end of the dayand you’ll begin to notice a big difference in the clarity, texture and feel of your skin.
07. The Last Word
With so many external factors affecting the health of our skin, it can be difficult to remain cool, calm and refreshed. But thankfully all the products I’ve recommended are designed by professionals to give you the best results, and improve the outlook of your skin. Obviously these products aren’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, but at times when our skin really needs a helping hand they’re always useful to have as a back up.
