It’s time to speak up if you’ve been neglecting your skin. To repair, maintain, and even pamper your mug, you don’t need to do anything. For long-term effects, we suggest some simple changes. Come learn how to prevent breakouts, irritated skin from shaving, and fine wrinkles that appear out of nowhere.

Skincare, like anything else we do for which we want benefits, needs consistency. However, establishing a routine might be difficult if you are unsure of what to do or how to use it.

What Are The Steps of a Basic Skincare Routine?

Cleanse

One thing that guys have nailed is not washing their faces every morning. This is because excessive washing might deplete your skin’s natural oils.

But only if you wash every night will this work. We start each day with a new slate, so why not end it with a clean slate for your skin? Allowing dirt and pollution to permeate into your pores overnight is not a good idea.

Repair

Free radicals, which cause oxidative stress, take a toll on our skin over time. Without getting into a chemical lecture, oxidative stress is the negative reaction of our bodies to things like:

  • Air pollution
  • Cigarettes smoke
  • Chemicals used in industry
  • Ultraviolet (UV) rays

An antioxidant serum, such as vitamin C, can help decrease skin damage and should be applied in the morning before the moisturizer followed by SPF protection.

Moisturize 

The most common reason why men don’t use moisturizer is that they dislike how it feels on the skin. However, finding a moisturizer with a texture that you can tolerate is simple nowadays. Using a moisturizer will protect your skin from feeling dry, and help it look younger.

Protect

Sunscreen must be applied on a daily basis. UV rays from the sun, are not only the leading cause of skin cancer, but they are also the most significant contributor to the aging of the skin. 

Follow up on your antioxidant serum and moisturizer with sunscreen. It’s not just for the beach or outdoor activities that you should wear. Skin damage is mostly caused by incidental sun exposure, such as the time you spend commuting to the train or having a coffee on the patio after work.

Even a basic routine might become a part of your overall health regimen. If you still think a skincare routine is unnecessary and frivolous, consult a skin specialist to know more about its importance.
