BEST SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR MEN | 2020 EDITION
I know what you're thinking of. Yeah, another Skincare routine blog. But it's a BIG NO because in this blog we are going to cover the MOST ESSENTIAL and the EFFECTIVE skincare routine for you guys. Yes, you heard it right. Whether you have oily skin, or dry or combination, or sensitive or just regular, this perfect and the most basic skincare routine is for you. In this blog, I'm gonna be presenting my favorite FIRST FIVE BULLETS of my skincare routine. If you follow these bullets for just one week, I guarantee you that you're gonna be having the most tremendous and radiant skin in the entire world. MARK MY WORD.
But before we begin with the bullets, a quick tip for all of you wonderful guys who every other second touche their face with their awful and dirty hands for whatever reasons. Boys you need to STOP IT. Stop touching your face with your hands. All the dirt and bacterias get transferred to your face that may cause acne, pimple skin bumps, blemishes, or skin irritation. But then too, if it's very important for whatever reasons then for God's sake wash your hands first and then do whatever you want to do. But you need to avoid this before heading towards the skincare routine.
SO HERE IS A SNEAK PEEK OF THIS SKINCARE ROUTINE
WASHING YOUR FACE.
APPLYING EYE CREAM
BULLET 1: WASHING YOUR FACE
Facewash should be the starting point of your day. Ideally, an individual should use a Facewash twice a day. One in the morning after you wake up and the other in the night before you get yourself on the bed to sleep.
In the morning I would recommend you to wash your face after you've taken your shower or after you've done your shaving. The reason behind this is nothing but natural science. Initially, the pores on your face are closed but after you take your shower the pores get open and at that time YOUR FACEWASH WOULD THE MOST EFFECTIVE and would clean the skin properly.
While applying facewash to your skin always try to circulate your finger because that will increase your blood flow and ultimately YOUR SKIN WILL REJUVENATE.
At night you should ideally use facewash to clear out the dirt that has carried through all day long. Get yourself a good quality facewash (and must check that it must be paraben-free and sulphate-free).
BULLET 2: EXFOLIATING YOUR FACE
Exfoliating means scrubbing. Exfoliating the face after face wash, I would say it's the best thing in the world. The skin feels so good after this. It lights up all the skin.
Ideally, the main use of exfoliating or scrubbing is to remove dead skin cells. It also reduces acne breakouts. BUT REMEMBER TO EXFOLIATE YOUR FACE ONLY 1 - 2 TIMES A WEEK. Not more than twice because it may harm your skin in various terms like your skin's natural oils can be stripped off and breaking out of skin may occur or your skin may become oversensitive to the sun.
BULLET 3: TONER
The scrubber was something you don't have to use it regularly but TONER is as important as your face wash. You must use a toner after facewash every day (on the day of using a scrubber, use the toner after doing facewash, and exfoliating your face).
A toner is a liquid that completely makes your skin hydrated for a longer time thus making it more ACTIVE, CLEAN, and SUPER STRONG. You can even ROSE WATER as a toner.
A toner is a must for everyone. It controls acne and maintains the pH balance of your skin.
Ideally, you should use a toner in the morning only. Because for the night we have a much more effective product listed below in BULLET 4.
BULLET 4: MOISTURISING
Most of you ideally skip it and don't give much attention to it. But remember if you want a product that keeps your skin stay young, then you must invest in a good quality moisturizer with an SPF of 30 - 50. So that it could protect your skin from the sun and allow your skin to get ready for the day. It also helps in removing blemishes.
Ideally, you used use moisturizer twice a day. One after 2-3 minutes of applying toner. It automatically makes your skin glowing. This must be an AM moisturizer which means it should contain sun protectants. And the other you should use it at night after washing your face with a facewash. This must be a PM moisturizer which means it should contain Alovera in it which can do wonder when applied to your skin.
If you don't want to use a PM moisturizer for whatever reason you can go for a good quality ALOVERA GEL as it's alternative. This is as effective as a PM moisturizer.
Before buying an AM moisturizer remember this -
If you have oily skin go for a gel-based moisturizer.
If you have dry skin, go for a cream-based moisturizer.
If you have sensitive skin, go for a medical moisturizer.
If you have regular skin, go for any one that suits you the best.
BULLET 5: EYE CREAM
So most of you who know how an eye cream work. Great Job. But for the ones who don't know what eye cream is. Guys start taking care of your eyes. Most of you would have an issue regarding dark circles or puffiness under the eyes. This is the solution for all these problems-A PERFECT EYE CREAM. Even if you don't have any of the problems you should use an eye cream because it has got plenty of benefits such as-
It reduces DARK CIRCLES
It cures PUFFINESS OF EYES
It keeps your skin around eye HYDRATED
It brightens your eyes.
It also nourishes your skin under the eye.
An eye cream can be used after applying the moisturizer. I would recommend you to use this at night only. You can use this twice a day by also applying it in the morning after moisturizing your face but remember it leaves a residue under the eyes so it wouldn't look too good to get outside with it. So use it at night only. And this will give you better results.
So this was all about my basic and the best skincare routine. Follow it for 7 days and you'll see how your skin loves it.
