It’s 2020 and we can see men caring about skin and taking a step forward to improve their skin health. If you are an active person that is always running through your day you may argue that you do not have the time or patience to stick to any skincare routine, especially when you see your girlfriend using ‘300’ products every day. But a good and effective men’s skincare routine does not need to be complicated or time-consuming. You can get on with it in the morning in less than 5 minutes and at night 7 minutes. These minutes you take every day to take care of your skin will make sure you will get healthy and clear skin.
WHAT TYPE OF PRODUCTS SHOULD I USE IN MY SKINCARE ROUTINE?
There are some products and steps that are essential in any skincare routine if you want to see results. Let’s break it down step by step to make it easier for you.
STEP 1: Cleansing & Exfoliation (90 seconds)
This is a no brainer, cleansing, and exfoliating the skin is a key step. Many men splash a bit of water to the face, add soap, lather for a few seconds and call it a day. Unfortunately using hands alone cannot deeply cleanse the skin . When you go out of your home every morning to work or to stroll around, micro-pollution particles and debris get stuck in your pores leading to the appearance of blackheads and acne. To prevent these skin concerns and remove dead skin cells, it’s important to cleanse your skin with a facial cleanser brush and a gentle cleansing gel. Choose a silicone facial cleansing brush or an oscillation brush if you have a beard as these will not get stuck or pull your beard. If you enjoy shaving frequently and don’t have a beard you can use a rotating brush. By using a brush you will not only get rid of debris, excess oil, and dead skin cells, but you will also be exfoliating the skin to smooth your complexion. You just need the 90s to cleanse your skin deeply with TOUCHBeauty electric facial cleansers. Use the brush to cleanse your skin at night and use your hands to wash your face in the morning, these will save you a few seconds if you are running in the morning to get out. Cleansing your skin with a facial brush will prepare your skin for the next skincare steps and it will help to better absorb other products.
STEP 2: Apply Serum (35 Seconds)
A serum is a potent product that delivers powerful ingredients into your skin. There are different types of serum for different skin types and skin concerns. Choose one that is right for you, and apply it to your skin. Dab a few drops on your skin and start massaging the product onto your skin from the neck up in upward lifting movements. This will just take a few seconds. Be gentle.
STEP 3: Apply Moisturizer (35 Seconds)
This third step is also very straight forward, choose your favorite moisturizing cream and apply it to your skin just like the serum. Start from the neck and massage your skin in upward lifting movements until you reach your forehead (avoid eye area).
STEP 4: Eye Cream & Massage (2 Minutes - 1 min on each eye)
The eye area is delicate and sensitive. Use a special eye cream and dab a small amount on your eye contour, use TOUCHBeauty Eye Cream Booster to spread the cream, and boost absorption. The Eye Cream booster will infuse the cream deep into the skin maximizing nutrients effectiveness while giving your eyes a soothing massage. This device is especially satisfying to use at night after a stressful day at work.
STEP 5: SPF Protection (30 Seconds)
In the morning, before you leave to go on through your day, you must not forget SPF. SPF will protect your skin from harmful UV rays. This is an essential step in any skincare routine, it doesn’t matter if it is raining or if it is cloudy outside.
EXTRA STEP: Lip balm (5 Seconds)
After you finish your skincare routine, apply a lip balm. It just takes 5 seconds and it will keep your lips hydrated and soft.
This skincare routine is so simple yet so efficient. It will take you only 5 minutes in the morning and 7 minutes at night. By following this routine consistently every single day you will keep skin healthy and clear while delaying signs of aging.
