We know what you’re thinking….”I’m a dude, I don’t need beauty tips.” The truth is if you care about the health of your skin, your hair and your body (which you should!), then you need to have a bit of a beauty regimen. With these simple beauty tips for men, you’ll be able to keep your body happy without much work.
1. MOISTURIZE YOUR SKIN
You take care of all the organs inside your body, but what are you doing to care for your largest organ – your skin? An adult carries around about 8 pounds of skin, so you need to make sure it’s healthy. Moisture is the number one way to keep your skin healthy. Drink plenty of water. And if your skin still feels a little dry, apply lotion after you shower. Use a body lotion on, well, your body and get a face moisturizer for your face.
2. PROTECT YOUR FACE WHEN YOU SHAVE
Shaving can cause irritation and in-grown hairs. Ouch. Plus, men’s skin is more prone to sensitivity, so if you’re not using a shaving cream when you groom your face, you need to be. Look for shave creams with soothing, anti-oxidant ingredients. We like Aveda’s Men Pure-Formance shave cream. If you struggle with redness when you shave, a soothing shave cream will save your skin. Notice we didn’t say shave gels. Gels tend to have more alcohol, which increases the risk of dry skin.
3. CLEANSE YOUR FACE
Women aren’t the only ones who need to wash and cleanse their faces. Pollution, dust, sweat and dirt from just daily activities can clog your pores. At the end of the day, you need to wash your face to clean all that gunk from your skin.
Cleansers help remove excess oil, so if you struggle with acne or oil, you’ll want to add a daily cleanser into your morning or night routine.
