Men’s Skincare Routine: Simple Steps to Better Skin in 4 weeks.
The mere mention of ‘Skincare Routine’ scares many men, most of whom shrug it off in denial because “Men don’t do skincare”, while some just don’t know how to go about it. So let’s start by addressing the elephant in the room. Men/women, kids/adults, young/old – all people MUST take care of their skin, and it is not a difficult process either.
Skincare routines are merely steps that need to be orderly followed, using correct types of products. Before you start your Skincare journey, it is important you understand what kind of skin you have – dry, sensitive, oily, normal or combination. Consult an expert if you are unable to figure this out yourself to choose the right type of skin products.
Your daily skincare routine essentially comprises two parts depending upon the time of the day and your skin’s need at that hour.
Day or AM Skincare care
The morning skin routine helps you look fresh and energetic while preparing your skin against various types of challenges it will be facing once you step out.
1.Cleanse your face using a suitable face wash. No, shaving doesn’t count as cleansing, and nor does splashing only water.
2.Exfoliate away dirty dead skin cells using a mild/medium exfoliator. Yes, it is different from cleansing. So don’t skip it. However, try to keep it under 3 -4 times a week depending on how dry or humid the weather is.
3.Skin Serum contains easily absorbable essential nutrients that go deep into the skin layers making it beautiful from within.
4.Eye Cream like a face serum is loaded with essential active ingredients. However, an eye cream is better equipped to reverse skin problems specific to the eye region like – crow’s feet, dark circles, puffiness, etc.
5.Moisturise using gel/cream/essential oil-based moisturisers. It will not only hydrate your skin but protect it from pollutants as well as bacteria. Furthermore, it will also lock in all the ingredients you have just provided your skin with, ensuring you reap its benefits.
6.Sunscreen – the final step and a crucial one too. Choose a UVA+UVB+SPF 30 or higher sunscreen. Sun can force your skin to age way before time, so you DO NOT want to miss wearing it.
Night or PM Skincare care:
During the day your skin has withstood a lot of wear and tear. Hence, PM skincare product ranges are blended to repair, rejuvenate and restore your skin. Reasons and order of the skincare routine mostly remain the same but what changes are the reasons and the benefits.
4.Night cream (moisturiser)
