Gentlemen, when it comes to skin and body care, we need to step it up a notch! Why? Because you deserve to look and feel just amazing as your female counterparts. With that in mind, our experts have some easy suggestions to revamp your grooming routine.
WASH YOUR FACE DURING YOUR SHOWER
Avoid dull and dirty skin by trying this daily! Ideally, you'll want to wash your face at least once a day as well as after every workout, according to the American Academy of Dermatology . This is less about looks and more about keeping your skin healthy. If it helps to form the habit, plan to wash your face every time you shower.
DITCH THE BAR SOAP
Bar soap is fine for your hands - but not for your face. It can have harsh ingredients that dry out your skin. Instead, try a cleanser specifically formulated for this area. One of our guest favorites is the ELEMIS Deep Cleanse Facial Wash for a refreshing clean that's suitable for all skin types. It removes impurities, prevents ingrown hairs and replenishes essential moisture. We bet your bar soap can't do any of that.
SHAVE LIKE A PRO
Master your shaving technique for the look you want without harming your skin in the process. The American Academy of Dermatology has some helpful tips, like don't stretch your skin while shaving. Make sure to wet your skin and apply shaving cream before taking the razor blade to your skin. Shave in the direction your hair grows. Rinse the blades after every swipe and use your blades for seven shaves max to avoid irritation.
MOISTURE IS KING (JUST LIKE YOU)
Moisturizer is not just for when your skin feels especially dry. You'll want to use it on a daily basis to prevent wrinkles and brighten your complexion. A good hack is to apply your moisturizer when your skin is still damp after washing. The dampness will help seal in the hydration. Lightweight, fresh and non-oily, the ELEMIS Daily Moisture Boost is a classic choice for daily hydration. To boot, use a moisturizer with anti-aging benefits like Pro-Collagen Marine Cream which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
SLATHER ON THE SPF
Sun damage can lead to dryness, wrinkles and age spots so be sure to protect your skin with sunscreen when you're headed outdoors. Put it on right before walking out the door each day!
