Some men only think ‘SOAP’ when they think about ‘Skincare’ how much of the basics do you know?
If you have largely ignored your skin up till now, there are some steps you can start making today as part of your daily grooming routine that will improve it. You don’t have to go all PRO skincare but that does help.
First things first
Ditch the soap and use a proper cleanser – Soap is bad for your skin so dump it. Instead, use the dedicated cleansers available that are free from harmful chemicals and gentle for the skin.

Use an exfoliating face scrub
Because the skin on your face is full of pores that fill with all kinds of nasty stuff, dirt and debris. It is a great idea to cleanse your face thoroughly. A decent granular face scrub will get rid of the dirt and exfoliate your skin. It will also soften the skin ready for a shave. This should be used 2-3 times weekly.

Boost your skin with an effective moisturiser
Your skin will often feel very dry thanks to the pounding it takes from everyday living. Even if you have oily skin, you need to replenish the moisture content that keeps escaping. Use a basic moisturizer containing SPF to get your skin moisture levels back up.

Eye cream – The eyes because of how thin the skin is around them are often the first to show signs of ageing. It is around the eyes that wrinkles will start to appear and why you need to use a specially formulated cream for this important facial area.

Masks are not just for Zoro and Pirates!
Although these may seem very girly but using a clay mask will help to deep cleanse the face removing excess oil, improve cellular regeneration and rid you of dead skin cells. Using collagen or vitamin boosted sheet mask with boost moisture, reduce fine lines and leave you with a face you cannot help touching as it is so soft.

Great for men as it is non-greasy, quick-drying sunscreen with a sheer matte finish offering broad-spectrum protection against UVA, UVB rays. Natural melanin shields skin from ageing effects of high-energy visible (HEV) light. Water and perspiration resistant, this sunscreen delivers superior protection during outdoor activities while hydrating the skin to prevent dryness.
One important note about skin is that it changes as you age. The skin will get thinner, dryer, and will get more sensitive as you age, so it is important that you re-visit any products you use as your needs could change and your current products may no longer be effective.
