According to skinnymusicles.com this is how men should take care of their face.
Obviously you need to cleanse your skin. Just bear in mind that your skin is super dry in the winter. Avoid harsh soaps and detergents though. Go for soap-free cleansers that are more gentle and don’t dry your skin too much.
When buying a cleanser, make sure it’s alcohol-free as well. Also, if you are anything like me and you wash your hands 50 times a day (I think that’s probably an OCD), you need to really cut it down. Reducing the heat of the water also helps.
Exfoliating the skin a couple of times a week is always a good idea. It gets rid of those dead cells sitting on top of your epidermis. They block your pores and that adds to the problem.
Go for products containing smaller granules. They are more gentle on the skin and you can use them more often if need be. When exfoliating, try not to rip your skin off – be a bit gentler and leave the product to do the job.
That’s where most men fail, myself included. You can get away with it the rest of the year, but in the winter you need to moisturise. Choose a moisturiser that’s suitable for your skin type and one that traps moisture in your skin.
Even though it is winter, make sure your moisturiser protects you against the sun. You need that SPF factor and UVA protection all year round.
I suggest you also reapply the hand cream as often as you wash your hands. Get a fast-absorbing non-greasy hand cream and take it with you.
Your diet is not just to keep your muscles grow. A clean and balanced diet provides your body with the nutrients it needs to function properly and keep danger away.
For a healthy skin in the winter, make sure you consume enough vitamin A, C, D and E. Think fruit, vegetables and dairy products.
Essential fatty acids (Omega-3) can also be good for your skin. Make sure your diet includes an element of oily fish – salmon, mackerel and tuna from time to time.
