When we talk about skincare, we need to know that men skin is a lot different from women skin in terms of its thickness, oiliness, hair growth and on how often they can get acne and how severe those can be. Therefore whatever skincare ingredient we look at, in female skincare products ex. moisturizer, sunscreen or a face wash, has to be much stronger when used on a man’s face. Also the behavioral pattern differs majorly. If you ask a man to use something 4 times a day, he will most certainly not do it, but that’s mostly not the case with women. So, when you are looking at any product, you need to look at stronger ingredients and preferably use it twice a day.
3 Easy Breezy Skincare Steps:
Here are 3 basic steps of skin care routine which can be followed in the morning and/or night. Before getting into the routine it is important to know;
a) What is your skin type (normal, oily, dry, combination)
b) Find suitable product for your skin type
Below are few basic steps you can add in your daily routine. Just like brushing and taking shower, skincare routine is equally important.
Step 1 – Cleansing: There are a lot of men who do nothing to their skin and are good to go but there are also a few other who would want to try different products, figure out what works best and follow a routine. To scrap out all the dirt from your face, start off with a face wash depending on your skin type and wash just wash face thoroughly.
Step 2 – Toning: Most men skin this step as this is the most confusing term in the entire skincare regime. Some believe toning is followed to tighten your pores, some believe it scraps out the left over residue from your face, or to make your skin dry if you have an oily skin, there are products available accordingly. You can totally skip this step if you have a nice clean face and not very oily skin. But if you are looking for a good toner, below are few options below. Just put a toner on a cotton pad and gently dab it onto your face.
Step 3 – Moisturizing (preferably with SPF): This step is to replenish your skin back. Make sure your moisturizer has an added SPF to avoid one extra step in the routine. Just put the moisturizers on your finger tips and gently apply on the skin all around and you are good to go.
This entire process takes not more than 5 minutes, so you can do cleansing, toning and moisturizing once in the morning and once at the end of the day for healthy happy skin.
