Grooming 01 - Skincare for men

Times change, and with it so do the attitudes of those who live during it. During the past few decades, skincare was reserved solely for the woman. Men didn’t need to care about their skin as they were known as the rough and rugged pillars of society that they so often made themselves out to be. Whether or not you believe this to be true, it’s also true that times change, and they’ve ultimately changed for the better.

These days, taking care of your skin is something akin to taking care of a finely tailored suit, one which ultimately, can’t be repaired if mistreated or abused. There are many things that you could use daily to make sure you got that model look right through the day (shout out to Signature moisturizing cream!). The skin is the largest organ of your body, and as such we’ve got some great tips that you may or may not know about taking care of it.

First and foremost, you’ll need to identify what skin type you have. This would not only be good for your general knowledge, but it would also help you pick out the right skincare products for the skin type that you have.

  • Sensitive skin
  • Normal skin
  • Dry skin
  • Oily skin
  • A combination (dry in certain areas, and oily in others)

Wash your face daily

This may be a no brainer to some, but there’s a lot of men that choose not to wash their face on a regular basis. Washing gets rid of much of grime that can accumulate on your face during the day and sometimes even when you sleep. Men with oily skin can really take advantage of this just as much as dry skin can, so better be safe than sorry!

Think about the before shave and after shave    

One needn’t scoff at the benefits of using shaving foam before the shave and after shave, well, after the shave. Shaving foam is specifically designed to help you get a clean shave, and most importantly, keep your skin free of nasty cuts that can appear without it. On the flip side using aftershave post-shave not only helps you heal if you do get a little cut, but also ensures that your skin stays energized, rehydrated, and fragrant throughout the day. Luckily for you, we have a selection of shaving paraphernalia that ensure the smoothest shave every time!

Moisturize daily

Despite the peer pressure you might get about moisturizing your skin as a man, keeping your skin hydrated and energized throughout the day will ensure that your skin stays picture-perfect for the longest time possible. We have a bunch of different products that would be perfect for all your moisturizing needs. Keep the mug snug, all day.

Wear sunscreen outdoors

Keeping active through the trials and tribulations of life is super important to leading a balanced life. However important it may be, keeping your skin safe during any outdoor activity can make or break your skincare routine. Remember to always be wearing sunblock or sunscreen while you are outside in the sun, or even in the evenings for that matter! UV rays don’t disappear when you can’t see the sun so its important to always use at least some lotion.

Let’s make this one perfectly clear: Skincare isn’t just for women. To really make the impression you want to make, alongside making sure that your skin is happy and healthy, apply some common know how and a little tact. All it takes is a little awareness pointed in the right direction and you are pretty much good to go.
