Taking care of your skin helps improve the overall look and feel of your skin and gives you a refreshing clean feeling that will boost your confidence. Here are some simple tips that any guy can take and improve their skin with minimal effort.
When To Wash Your Face
Washing your face is an obvious answer to keeping your skin clean and fresh, but there are a few finer details that you need to know to make sure that you’re taking care of your face properly. Many men wash their face in the morning or while they’re in the shower in order to wake up and start the day, but washing your face at night is far more important. Throughout the day we’re exposed to dirt and oils that can collect on our face from interacting with people and things, or even just by walking around. Once you finally get home, it’s crucial to wash away all that dirt and oil so it doesn’t get to settle into your skin and start causing havoc.
On another note, washing your face isn’t the ultimate solution to having healthy skin. In fact, if you do it too much, you’ll actually be doing more harm the good. It’s recommended that you only wash your face twice a day, meaning keep it to the night and the morning. If you wash your face more often than that, you can cause irritation, dryness, and even increase the chance of acne breakouts.
Know What You’re Putting Against Your Face
As we mentioned above, just the act of going about your day as you normally do will cause dirt and oils to build up on our skin. However, we often unknowingly increase the amounts of dirt on our face by doing things like putting our hands on our face, or using our cell phones. Just imaging all of the tables that you’ve put your phone on or how many times you dropped it on the ground, and then imagine the last time you actually wiped it down to clean it. All of the dirt and oils that collected on your phone are transferred to your face at the moment you use it. Take a little bit a time to clean the things that you put to your face throughout your day, and your skin will thank you for it.
Our skin contains a large amount of water, which isn’t too surprising considering that 60% of our whole body is composed of water. The water in our skin acts as a protective barrier, keeping good stuff inside and preventing bad stuff from seeping in. One way to keep your skin hydrated is through moisturizer that you can apply, but let’s say that you’re not the kind of guy that’s going to apply moisturizer on a regular basis. Drinking water is the easiest way to keep yourself and your skin completely hydrated.
Know What Exfoliating Is (And Do It)!
Our skin is constantly creating new skin cells and getting rid of old ones. Most of these dead skin cells flake off, while many remain on our skin. When this left over dead skin combines with things like oil, it can lead to clogged pores or even increase the chance of acne breakouts. Exfoliating your skin is as easy as getting a loofah, skin care brush, or washcloth and washing your face with it. Just wash your face with any of those skin care tools and some soap, and all of that dead skin will be scrubbed away, leaving your skin feeling smooth and clean.
Facials Do The Hard Work For You
More and more men are discovering (and enjoying) getting a facial from a salon. Forget about doing all of the work taking care of your skin, and let a professional take over. Facials clean, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin all in one session, leaving your skin feeling like it’s brand new. Instead of going to a normal salon, you can also come to 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon in Brookhaven, which is designed specifically for men. Our facial treatments are a complete, relaxing experience that also include massages and refreshing drinks to help you relax and escape.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
