Skincare isn’t just for women; guys’ skin needs some loving too. We’re here to tell you exactly what you can do to improve your “manplexion. “ Gone are the days that you secretly steal your lady’s night cream or wonder why you’re still exhibiting breakouts as if you’re 15 again and going through puberty. We’ve got you covered.
First Things First
Every morning when you initially wake up, immediately splash cold water on your face. This quick cleanse process will help slough away dead skin cells you may have, ultimately helping to improve the dullness of your face. We recommend using a wash with glycolic acid, which will penetrate skin deeply and easily. You should also be exfoliating anywhere from once to twice a week in order to keep your face looking fresh and rejuvenated. ZO Skin Health carries an Offects Exfoliating Polish, available at The SHAW Center, which consists of ultra-fine magnesium crystals that aid in exfoliating dead skin cells and enhances epidermal turnover to produce a smoother complexion.
Quench The Thirst
Moisturizing your face is key. While exfoliating and using compounds like glycolic acid are beneficial, it can also leave your skin looking dry if you don’t take proper measures. If you’re prone to breakouts, try a product that is mostly water-based. We’re not saying you have to shave the beard either, just work around it! You ‘mustache’ what you’re doing to help remedy the situation.
In addition, make sure you’re getting your H20 fix throughout the day. Dehydration can lead to many issues that can result in bad skin. We understand that you’re still probably going to have your post-work brew with the boys, but just make sure you’re equalizing that with some water.
So What, Maybe You Still Get ID-ed
Even if you’ve hit the genetic gene pool and have plans to age like George Clooney, it’s essential to still take precaution with wrinkles and aging. It’s never too early to start using products like retinol cream to boost your youth and promote collagen production. Making this a habit will only continue to improve the evenness of your complexion. ZO Skin Health offers several of their products that comprise an “Aggressive Anit-Aging Program,” otherwise they have a variety of cleansers, polishes, creams and sunscreens that help combat aging as well.
Dress The Part, Don’t Stress The Part
Some things are easier said than done. Choosing to not stress out isn’t always the easiest option but at least you can try to control it. Unfortunately, stress can lead to an imbalance in hormones, which can then completely throw off your skin’s condition, ultimately causing breakouts. Try to let the little things go to not only improve your mental health but your skin as well.
