Easy Skincare for the Urban Gentleman
Add these 3 steps to your routine.
Cleanse – Wash your face first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Avoid soap as it’s too drying and astringent. Instead opt for a good quality mens face wash. Use circular motions with your finger tips and don’t rub too hard. Pat dry afterwards and don’t rub.
Exfoliate - A lot of men skip this step but it’s important as this is where you remove dead skin cells and dry skin to instantly re-juvenate your skin. Aim to gently exfoliate once or twice a week to encourage skin to look bright. Some face washes have an exfoliant in them which can be a time-saver.
Moisturise – Look for a good quality moisturiser with plenty of active natural ingredients. Ingredients like Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E are good for smoothing and hydrating your skin. Always moisturise after cleansing and/or shaving. Applying moisturiser before you sleep is a good idea as it allows the active ingredients to be absorbed into the skin whilst the skin is having a break from dealing with environmental toxins such as pollution or blue light from computer screens.
