Easy skincare tips for men

Do you want to take better care of your skin but just aren't sure where to begin? There's a confusing array of products and advice for caring for male skin. These skincare tips for men cover all the basics of establishing and maintaining a good skincare routine.

  1. Cleanse your skin morning and evening with a specifically designed face wash for your skin type (oily, dry or combination). This doesn't need to be expensive - you can pick up a good men's face scrub for around £5.
  2. Follow up with a moisturiser to prevent dry and flaky skin and keep your skin looking healthy and hydrated.
  3. When applying moisturiser, use small circular motions with your finger tips to massage your face and wake up your skin.
  4. To prevent ingrown hairs, always use a new razor blade and shave in the direction of hair growth, not against the grain.
  5. Facials aren't just for girls! A weekly steam treatment will clear your pores and help prevent spots. And the good news is that you don't have to go to the salon to get one! Just fill a large bowl with boiling water and lean over it with a towel over your head. The steam will open up your pores. Then clean and moisturise as normal.
  6. Always wear sunscreen or use a moisturiser with SPF factor in it - the sun can cause skin damage and premature ageing.
  7. Do you suffer from acne or periodic breakouts? Look for a spot busting product that contains salicylic acid to help dry out problem areas.
