Say NO To Soaps
We know your all-purpose soap cleans everything from top to bottom, but try giving face wash a go, especially if you have a sensitive skin. Many face washes come with micro-beads that not just draw out toxins, but also exfoliate the skin and control excess sebum buildup!
Never Skip The Sunscreen
Men's skin being thicker is definitely better protected against harsh UV rays, but it is not immune to it!
Your skin can become just as easily leathery and wrinkled if you are not careful. Using sunscreen every day will keep your skin looking great for years to come, plus it protects your skin against cancer! Do you need any more reason?
Moisturise It Right
Men's skin tends to be 15% more oily than female, true. But it is also true that your skin can just as easily flake, become dry and itchy. To avoid all that, get a light moisturiser that suits your specific skin type and use it twice a day!
Try Face Mask!
Wondering how your girl has super-smooth skin? Well, she uses face masks diligently. It draws out impurities from the skin, removes dead cells, increases new cell turnover and keeps your skin looking healthy.
