Steps of Men Facial Skin Care
Face is the first thing when people notice about you. Introduce some men skin care tips step by step.
Think about it. What is the first thing people notice about you?
It's your face. Take it seriously.
Healthy skin is the most important element of a great looking face. It is not only easy to achieve, it's critical and you can do it for yourself. Put your best face forward.
As a professional make-up artist and founder of the first skin care line created especially for men, I'd like to share some basic tips and guidelines to encourage healthier skin. It's simple
Step1 - Keep it clean.
Cleansing products should be as chemical free as possible. Deodorant soaps shouldn't be used on your face. They cleanse with harsh ingredients and leave a detergent film behind. This may irritate your skin and will clog your pores. Go natural.
A good scrub is essential for healthy clean skin. It will remove dead cells and smooth the surface of your face. The scrub should be strong without being damaging. Stay away from scrubs that contain rough elements like ground bits of nut or seed extracts. They will tear and damage skin. A good scrub will invigorate you, not hurt you. Exfoliate and polish with a Jojoba scrub.
Moisturizing is a necessity. Again, the product with the least amount of chemical additives is the best. Always use a light moisturizer on your face after cleansing and shaving and don't forget your neck! Hydrate and nourish your skin.
For an intensive moisture treatment use pure vitamin E, or aloe vera oil. It is available in liquid form, or just break open a capsule and apply the oil directly to the skin. This is a great under eye treatment. Remember it is very important to moisturize this sensitive area of the face. It is one of the first places to show age because the under eye skin secretes no necessary oils on its own. Something with chamomile like the 911 Eye Treatment is refreshing.
Step2 - Keep it toned.
As skin ages, it needs to work harder to maintain its elasticity. Astringents and toners with glycolic or alpha hydroxyl acids work the best for toning the face. These acids actually can reduce the pore size, and help avoid ingrown hairs. They are aggressive and have quick results. Remember to look for a product that is not photosensitive (sensitive to light).
Step3 - Treat your skin.
All types of skin need to be exfoliated. This is the removal of dead skin cells that form daily. This is an essential part of skin treatment.
After shaving, you need to moisturize with a product that has absolutely no alcohol in it. Avoid heavy fragrant after-shave products too, as they can irritate the skin. Hydration is important.
Skin that is too shiny doesn't look healthy, just greasy. Blot the excess oils away. Blotting papers or a light powder that will give you a more natural finish, are both good options to try. An undetectable product with anti-shine is desired for a flawless look.
Don't forget about your lips. Find a balm that has an SPF of at least 15 in it. Peppermint oil has a nice feel and keeps the lips looking luscious. Menaji's Lip Agent is a once a day application.
Step4 - Protect your skin.
Here are the key techniques:
Avoid over exposure to the sun.
Stay in shape.
Everything in moderation.
Remember, it is your face, so take it seriously.
