Facial Cleanser: Resolutionize Your Skin This New Year

It's a new year and somewhere in between eating healthier and working out more, you may have decided to take better care of your skin this year. Preserving and hydrating your skin is one of the best ways to look younger and feel better, especially during the harsh winter season that is still upon us. 

We're often asked about skincare advice, and what the best tips are for an easy and effective skin care regimen. As you may know, a man's skin tends to be oily and is often more acne-prone. This is because men’s skin has bigger pores and tends to be more irritated from shaving. Those are a bit more of the scientific reasons, but let’s face it (pun intended) – it’s also because guys tend to lose the battle against women when it comes to properly taking care of their skin. Research has shown that most men use only soap and water to cleanse their face. While a soap bar may be better than the alternative of simply letting shampoo run down your face during a shower, it is true that it can dry out your skin, speed up the aging process, and make you more prone to breakouts.

This may surprise you, but it turns out the key to good skin starts with a good cleanser. A great cleanser should not only cleanse your skin, but it should also properly hydrate it. In fact, we almost always guide a first-time customer to our Facial Cleanser.

Our skin has a natural pH and moisture level that requires constant balance. Using a harsh cleanser that strips your face of moisture, or using tons of moisturize to compensate for severe dryness can ruin the delicate balance necessary to get and maintain clean and clear skin.     

So this year, help your face get through the polar vortex and start it off right with our tried and tested Facial Cleanser. Tell us what you think? @RecipeForMenUSA
