A man cleanses his face as part of a healthy skincare routine.
Gentlemen, you have your tried-and-true grooming methods, but every once in awhile, you're due for an upgrade to your skincare routine. With the cooler days of fall looming, follow these self-care tips to transition into the season with clear skin, great hair, and enviable fashion sense!

WASH YOUR FACE DAILY

Yes, you should wash your face daily to maintain healthy, glowing skin. Your skin and pores still encounter dirt and grime throughout the day. Make sure to exfoliate your skin with a scrub every other day, then follow-up with a gentle cleanser in between. It’s as easy as cleansing during your daily shower. For the best results, opt for a cleanser that is specifically formulated for men’s skin.

UPGRADE YOUR SHAVE

Not all shaving creams or gels are created equal. Elevate your shave experience with a shave gel or cream that allows for a closer shave, softens the facial hair and reduces irritation and razor burn. Post-shave, apply eye cream for a more refreshed look, and use an anti-aging moisturizer such as Pro-Collagen Marine Cream For Men. Your older self will be grateful.

EMBRACE YOUR NATURAL HAIR

Tousled curls and shaggy locks are good looks, but you'll still need to properly maintain your natural mane. Esquire recommends booking an appointment with your barber every four weeks. That way, you won't have to wait until your hair is in desperate need of some attention. Instead, your cut will always look sharp. In between those monthly barber visits, care for your man mane with a shampoo and conditioner made for men.

KEEP THOSE EYEBROWS IN CHECK

While natural is always in, you'll still want to groom your eyebrows. If you're brave enough, pluck those middle hairs between your brows to save yourself from the shadow of a dreaded unibrow. Otherwise, ask your barber to clean up your brows during your monthly haircut.

TRY THE TAILORED LOOK

Every man needs a killer suit - but it won't do you any justice if it doesn't fit properly. Men's Journal recommends getting your jackets and shirts taken in, plus hemming your pants to the perfect length. When it's time to pack away your summertime shorts, make sure you're wearing denim that fits as well as your suits. You may even want to switch your jeans look with some sleek chinos every once in a while.
