When it comes to skincare, people usually resonate skincare with women, but the truth is that men need to care for their skin just like women. Men who shave more often usually have dry skin and the shaving process also irritates their skin. So dear men, we are not telling you to apply face masks and makeup like us, but following a simple skincare routine can help you maintain the texture and smoothness of your skin.
If you are planning to start with a skincare routine, but don’t know how to go about it then, read below to find out some basic skincare tips that can help you achieve a soft skin and can also ease out the shaving process for you. You don’t need any high-end products for these tips and can manage to do it daily basis. Also remember, consistency is key with these routines!
Clean your skin:
When it comes to cleansing, men should make sure to wash their face at least twice a day since their skin tends to get oily throughout the day in certain areas. Excess oil can stick to the skin, and block the pores, preventing the razor from gliding along the skin smoothly. So before you shave, wash your face to make sure there are no blockages.
Prep before you shave:
Before you start shaving make sure to splash your face with warm water. It will open up the pores and will help you shave smoothly. Also, apply a thin layer of pre-shaving cream to keep the skin moist and warm.
Always apply the moisturiser:
Yes, girls get attracted to facial hair, but they also appreciate smooth and supple skin. Hence, moisturising daily will help you get you soft, gentle skin. Fragrance-free products are easy because they have no smell and aren’t considered girly.
Never miss out on after-shave:
After-shave hydrates and soothes the skin; it also seals in the skin after a nice shave. Make sure that your after-shave is alcohol-free because alcohol dries your skin.
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen:
Sunscreen is a must for everyone. Men who don’t use sunscreen increase their risk of getting sun damage, which may result in redness, irritation and extra blood vessels. So it’s always better to step outside the house after applying some sunscreen.
