Skincare advice for my manly men readers! :)
Guys please do not neglect your skin. Don't do what I've seen most men do they shower, brush their teeth, shave and that's it they're out the door.. Most men shave daily which can be extremely rough on the skin. Therefore it is important to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. Don't assume that skin care products are only for women. Although I must admit a lot skin care products are typically geared towards women but they do have skin care products that are formulated just for men's skin.
I recommend using a good cleanser or scrub to remove any dirt and dead skin cells you may have on the surface of your skin and depending on your skin type whether you have an oily or dry face I would then use a toner to remove any remnants of dirt the cleanser may have left behind. Usually I always recommend using a toner or astringent because men typically tend to have larger more visible pores and a good toner can help minimize the appearance of them. Toners also help reduce shine if you tend to have a more oily face this could definitely help you out with that problem.
Now that you have cleansed and toned your skin you should always apply a good moisturizer. The moisturizer you use should also depend on the type of skin you may have. If you're oily I recommend using an oil-free product but if you're more on the dyer side then make sure to find a more emollient and hydrating product. Which would be more of a cream type of product because creams usually have more of a moisture content. Also remember that most regular shaving creams and gels can strip your face of its moisture content therefore try and use a product that already has some sort of moisturizing effect so that it wont leave you completely dried out after you're done shaving.
Also keep in mind that your shaving gel is not the only component you should consider. The razors you use can sometimes be the main problem. Get yourself a good razor that has a moisturizing strip to it. Just by doing that it can help your skin drastically.
Remember being well groomed doesn't mean only shaving your beard or mustache it also includes keeping any other hairs that you may have visible such as eyebrows, nose and ear hairs. Maintaining all these areas trimmed and clean can help in keeping a well groomed and attractive appearance.
