Has not grooming for men come a long way over the last few years? Men are starting to take a lot more pride in their appearance – which is a welcome sign! However, I do have some 'up-to-date' grooming tips for men about facial skin care.
Facial skin care products for men have also evolved rapidly over the last few years and there are now many product lines on the skin care market specifically for men.
I know many men welcome this (my husband is one of them!), And that is what we are going to talk about today – the first three basic skin care products for men!
Grooming Tips For Men: The Basic 3-Step Facial Routine:
1) Cleanse / Facial Wash : I think a lot of men think that because they are male that their skin is a lot tougher and thicker than a woman's and it can take more of a hammering. This is true to a certain extent but you still have to look after it as it is still 'skin' at the end of the day and not 'leather'.
So the first thing you need to do is thoroughly wash your face, not with plain soap and water, but with a specific cleanser or facial wash targeting your skin type.
These types of cleansers get deep down into the pores of your skin to get rid of the dirt and grime.
2) Shaving : Next you will want to shave your face. Now you can get 'pre-shave' creams to prepare your skin before you shave. This is an additional optional step, but they are great in softening your skin before it gets hit with the blade which can only be a good thing!
You then put on your shaving foam / gel onto where you are going to shave and then carry out the procedure.
3) Moisturise : Then of course there is the 'after-shave' lotion which must definitely not be the 'after-shave lotion' that you wear as a 'perfume'. You must put a cool, soothing moisturizer on your skin which will help reduce and cool any redness.
The above 3 grooming tips for men are the basic but very necessary steps if you are serious about looking after your facial skin.
