Listen up fellas, just because you’re a bloke it doesn’t mean that you can blag your way through life and have perfect skin forever. At some point, if you want to keep your complexion looking as fresh and handsome as possible, you’re going to need to put a little bit of work in. Don’t worry, it’s much easier than you think. Here are some skincare tips for men – look and feel your best.
Wash your face every day – and after exercise
Get your hands on some mild facial cleansers and wash your face with mild temperature water. Do so every day – particularly after exercise when your pores are open. There’s no excuse to skip this step because it literally takes seconds!
Shave with more care and precision
The key to being kind to your skin is being mindful of how you treat it, especially when having a shave. You should invest in a high-quality razor, use a moisturising shaving cream, and shave in the direction of the hair growth.
No, moisturising isn’t only for women and nor is it un-masculine. There’s nothing unmanly about wanting to take care of your body and maintaining a healthy appearance. If you want your skin to look brighter and younger, then you’ll have to give it some TLC. Just be mindful of the label and make sure that you are using organic skincare products rather than slathering your body with all manner of unrecognisable chemicals.
Check your skin regularly
Another trick when maintaining healthy skin is not just looking after it, but looking out for it. So, check your skin regularly in the mirror and keep an eye out for any irregularities. If you find new spots or moles that itch like mad and bleed easily, then it could be an early warning sign of skin cancer. Visit your local dermatologist now and again and keep on top of it!
Always wear sunscreen
If you are the type of person who says: “I don’t need to wear sunscreen”, then be accepting of the fact that you are wrong. It doesn’t matter how dark your skin is, the sun will damage it all the same. Whenever you are out in the sun for extended periods of time you need to protect it. Even more so if you are going for a swim in a pool or the ocean as the water will reflect the UV rays with even greater intensity. Slap on some SPF 30 or higher and you will thank yourself for it in the years to come.
While masturbating regularly isn’t the cure-all for healthy skin, it certainly helps. The fact is, when you ejaculate your body produces more testosterone which has been linked to improving skin health and appearance by tightening the flesh, whilst increasing its elasticity. What are you waiting for? Find some fleshlights online, give yourself a little love, and start taking care of that complexion of yours.
Do a facemask
Facemasks are designed to refine your pores, draw out its impurities, increase your hydration, and even out the skin tone. Nobody needs to know! Go on, treat yourself to a hot bath, slap on a facemask and listen to some music. You deserve it.
