Guys, caring about your skin isn’t unmanly, shallow or vain. It doesn’t require 10 products,10 steps and what seems like hours to complete.
In fact, it’s actually as simple as these 3 steps CLEANSE, MOISTURISE and PROTECT and only takes 3-5mins max…
If you have been using a soap bar or simply splashing a little water on your face in the shower thinking that will do, think again. Did you know that you could be making your skin worse by drying it out and encouraging breakouts while doing nothing? So maybe it’s time to do a little more. Every day your skin is exposed to dirt, grime, and pollution. Such exposure requires cleansing morning and night. Reach out for a cleanser that’s formulated for your specific skin type.
A great one that I recommend is Aspect Exfoliating Cleanser. It contains L-Lactic Acid which refines and gently exfoliates, Salicylic Acid which decongests, Aloe Vera which calms and soothes the skin and Canadian Willowherb, antioxidant protection. The most convenient thing about this product is that it can also be used as a shaving foam.
Moisturise and protect
An important step in any skincare routine. Every skin type needs hydration and protection to maintain healthy-looking skin.
For oily skin, I recommend looking for a product that is lightweight, oil-free and non-comedogenic. If you have a combination and/or normal skin, opt for a medium weight moisturiser for daily use. For dry skin, seek out hydrating moisturisers containing hyaluronic acid.
For everyday protection, no matter what your skin type, sunscreen is a must. It’s important to protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays which cause aging and sunburn. Ideally, you should be reaching for an SPF15 at a minimum. A go-to is Dermalogica's Prisma Protect SPF30. A lightweight multitasking moisturiser that provides all-day hydration and defends against UV rays, pollution, and free radicals.
Guys, by taking care of your skin in a way that targets its specific needs, you will age gracefully and keep your skin looking as healthy as possible. Isn’t that what we all want?
