Beauty tips for men are sometimes hard to find. In world full of beauty and skincare advice geared toward women, I've managed to come up with few for us men.
Here are five of my favorites. I think these are among the most important if you want to get that baby smooth skin.
Number 1: Use a Gentle Facial Cleanser
I know a lot of guys use their body wash, but using a gentle facial cleanser is important. The skin on your face is more delicate than it is anywhere else on your body.
If you are a guy who shaves, you really need something gentle. Otherwise, you will have ingrown hairs, irritation and dryness. So your complexion just won’t look great.
The best facial cleansers are those that contain natural ingredients like shea butter, mango butter, and avocado, just to name a few.
These natural ingredients are super-moisturizing and will tone, cleanse,and heal the skin.
Number 2: Always Use a Sharp Triple-Blade Razor
Although these tips are for the men, women who shave their legs should do the same. If you use a dull razor, you are more likely to have razor burn.
The dull blade will cause more skin irritation because it will not be able to make a clean cut on the hair.
Triple-blade razors are more effective than single or double-edged. With a sharp triple-edged blade, you should only have to make one pass across your face and that’s a good thing.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but I know guys who just use water.They have chronically red skin on the areas that they shave. You do not need an expensive foamy shaving lubricant.
You can use plain grape seed oil if you want to go completely natural. You can find grape seed oil in the grocery store.
Number 4: Don’t Exfoliate If You Shave
Some of the beauty tips for men mention exfoliation, which removes dead cells and generally makes the skin look smoother and brighter.
If you shave your face, you should not exfoliate. The razor does the same thing. You can occasionally exfoliate areas that you don’t shave.
Number 5: Use a Good Facial Moisturizer and a Good Body Lotion
You should always moisturize after showering. A good facial moisturizer can help prevent wrinkles and reduce redness.
A good organic body lotion will help reduce dry, rough patches on your elbows and heels.
It is the ingredients that determine whether or not a moisturizer is any good. Petrolatum and mineral oil are bad ingredients.
They will cause a greasy feeling and really do nothing good for your skin. Natural ingredients like raw African shea butter, frankincense & myrrh extract and palm oil are the best choices.
There you have five of the best beauty tips for men. They all focus on the skin, because you need good-looking skin in order to look your best.
