If you didn't already know, SKIN IS IN!
And for the guys out there ignoring their basic skincare requirements for some machismo reason now is the time to stop with the BS—for real.
According to the skincare gods, to moisturize is to prevent premature skin aging and dryness. Totally down with that!
Healthy clear skin not only increases your confidence it also boosts your daily handsomeness. And considering the options available, maintaining a daily routine has never been easier.
For the most basic skincare routine start off with a face wash and quality moisturizer.
But there are levels to this, just know these two essentials when used regularly will help maintain younger clearer skin for the long-run.
That said, we are going to keep it super simple.
A good moisturizer does three things: it hydrates, it protects, and it renews.
Let's break each one down.
Since we do prefer our ingredients clean and natural look for these key elements; Aloe, Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid. A combination of all three will help keep your skin hydrated giving it an energized healthier fresh look. Say goodbye to the days of having a dull complexion!
A good moisturizer provides a layer of protection. One of the best all-natural non-irritating ingredients is jojoba oil. Jojoba helps protect your skin against water loss hence retaining moisture in your skin and preventing dryness. It's also non comedogenic meaning it won't clog your pores!
Another all-natural ingredient in helping prevent premature skin aging is aloe vera. Aloe is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps rejuvenate your skin. It's rich in vitamins A, C, E, B, Choline, B12 and folic acid which bring a ton of benefits to your skin.
When looking for a solid moisturizer keep the above points in mind and use a light weight moisturizer that has fast absorbing properties. Men have naturally thicker skin so avoid the heavier creams and lotions.
For the best results make sure to use twice daily: once in the morning after you wash up and once before bed.
So keep an eye out the next time you are shopping for skincare goods. There are great brands out there so seek the ones that have an established reputation and test a few to see which works best with your skin type.
To give our all-natural face moisturizer a try go here! We cover all of the above points while using all-natural ingredients.
In our next skincare post we'll talk about how to integrate a simple face wash and or an exfoliant!
Again, there are levels to this, so stay tuned for more if you want to upgrade your skincare game.
