For most people, skincare equates to beauty. But for men, it could mean two things. First, it’s only for women. And second, it’s too much work. But here’s the thing. We - all humans, no matter our gender, race, shape, or age - should be taking care of our bodies. And that includes its biggest organ: the skin.
Here are 9 things you must do to achieve better-looking and healthier skin.
Water isn’t enough. Getting rid of dirt on your face is the first step to getting clearer complexion and this step would need a good cleanser that does the job. Shades of Shave not only cleans the skin but also relieves inflammation, protects from sun damage, and has anti-aging effects. This product also doubles as a shaving foam for those pesky facial hair that you want to banish!
Moisturizing your skin is an important part of skincare that many people tend to overlook because they don’t really see its point. You see, the skin needs hydration to function well. And because it has been stripped of its natural oils after cleansing, you have to replenish that moisture. Possibly, through Naked Truth. This not only gives superb hydration to the skin but also protects it from UVB damage, lightens the complexion, and cools the skin.
Speaking of moisture, nothing beats the one given by water. Topical treatments cannot give your skin all the hydration it needs. So drink that 6 to 8 glasses of water a day that the doctors recommend. Because a well-hydrated body makes for a softer and healthier skin.
Get enough sleep.
Get at least 8 hours of sleep - something that we’ve heard from our parents since we were kids. And that’s not for nothing! Rest gives your cells the time they need to repair any wear or stress during the day, which in turn would make your body healthier and well-functioning.
Use anti-aging products.
Thinking about the use of anti-aging products even at your 20s doesn’t mean you’re a narcissist. In fact, incorporating this into your regimen early on can stop the formation of fine lines and wrinkles down the road.
This is a no-brainer. A healthy body means a healthy complexion. Whatever the condition of your insides is, will reflect on your skin. So make sure that you pack your diet with fruits and veggies to get the nutrition that your body and skin need.
Stress is one of the biggest reasons why we breakout because the influx of hormones can damage healthy skin cells. Unfortunately, good mood can’t be bought in a bottle. So, try to relax and chill as often as you can.
Smoking is bad for the health (duh!). And what makes this worse is the fact that it can lead to fine lines and make the skin pale, as it decreases circulation and collagen production. So quit this habit for a healthier skin and environment.
Protect your skin.
Again, another step that most people - men and women alike - tend to forget. It is undeniable that the sun gives Vitamin D and other nutrients to the body. However, too much exposure to it can lead to the appearance of premature aging and even melanoma. So, protect your skin at all cost and don’t be shy to slather sunscreen all over.
