men’s daily skincare routine.
Some men may find the idea of a regular skin care routine daunting, time consuming and well, unmasculine. But Pureman is here to tell you that you couldn’t be more wrong. Sorry, blokes. Having a daily skincare routine will only take up a few extra minutes of your morning and night, and your skin will thank you for it. It is well worth the time and doesn’t detract from your masculinity. In fact, you’ll be feeling even better about yourself when you notice the difference in the feel of your skin and the more youthful appearance that a daily skincare routine can uncover. In years to come, your mates will be jealous of how much younger and healthier your face looks.
Step 1 - Cleanse
Find a cleanser that works for your skin type, be it dry, oily, normal or combination skin. Wet your skin with warm water to open your pores, use a dollop of cleanser and gently cleanse in circular motions. Give your skin a rinse and you’re golden. Repeat this twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. Check out Blind Barber’s Watermint Gin Facial Cleanser.
Step 2 - Moisturise
Again, you want to find the right product for your skin. The levels of hydration can differ from product product. Be sure your skin is dry, then apply the product, focusing most on the forehead and around the eyes. Do this morning and night, though be aware that your evening moisturiser will differ from your daytime one. In the am, you tend to have a product with SPF to protect you from the sun, whereas evening moisturisers may contain retinoids or other ingredients that make your skin sensitive to the sun. Try Baxter of California’s Oil Free Moisturiser during the day and Brickell’s Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cream before bed.
Step 3 - Exfoliate
This step is for the morning routine only and is to be done 1-3 times a week, after cleansing and before moisturising. Exfoliating helps slough off the dead skin cells, unclog your pores and get rid of ingrown hairs. Gentleman’s Brand Co. Face Scrub is a great product to use for deep and gentle exfoliation.
