3 Skincare Steps Men Will Actually Follow

Having a proper skincare routine isn't feminine, it's smart.  Men who take care of their skin on a daily basis beam with confidence.  So what makes a man want to start taking care of his skin?  Telling him that his skin is the largest organ on his body.  Taking care of your skin is just like taking care of your health; your skin needs protection and moisture just like your body needs nutrients and exercise.  
 
What kind of skin do you have? Do you have acne? Discoloration? Big pores? 
 
Normal Skin - Normal skin does not get oily or dry throughout the day.  People with normal skin don't ever really have to worry about acne appearing.  
 
Oily Skin - People with oily skin tend to struggle with acne due to dirt build up.  Throughout the day, someone with oily skin will have to blot their face off with a napkin to control shine. 
 
Dry / Sensitive Skin - Dry skin is very easily irritable and gets red more frequently.  Dry skin will become flaky and may have a tight feeling throughout the day. 
 
Combination Skin - Combination skin means some areas of your face are oily and some areas of your face are dry / sensitive / normal.  
 
After figuring out what kind of skin you have, it's necessary to find a skincare line that works for you and your needs. 
 
3 Skincare Steps That Men Will Actually Follow:
 
1. Cleanse 
Cleansing your face of dirt and oils is only necessary morning and night.  Find a facial cleanser (not a bar of soap) that works for you and isn't too drying.  When you're done cleansing, rinse with cold water so your pores completely close.  Pat dry with towel.
 
*Overly cleansing your face can cause dryness that leads to premature wrinkles.
 
2.  Exfoliate
Exfoliate after you cleanse.  Exfoliating away dead skin cells is one of the best things you can do for your skins overall health. When you exfoliate regularly, you are increasing blood circulation which helps attain fresh skin. 
 
*Exfoliate 1 to 3 times a week for best results 
 
3.  Stay Hydrated
Drinking water and moisturizing daily has so many great health benefits for your skin.  Investing in a nice face moisturizer and using it daily is key for wrinkle free skin! 
 
*Wearing a moisturizer with SPF in it will prevent aging
