Real Men Have a Skin Care Routine


The general argument for most men is that they want a skin care routine that is simple — if they even decide they need one. It’s funny how those with the most need have the least realization.

Do you want to look in the mirror and see an aging man? Take action — reflect a vibrant, age-defying image — by supporting, healing and repairing your skin.

Do you like to feel a romantic partner’s touch? Make your skin touchable. Do you want a romantic partner to kiss you? Make your lips kissable.

Do you want to vibrate with good health and vigor? Give your largest organ, your skin, what it needs to be healthy.

A few minutes in the bathroom is really all one needs; the key is finding the right products and routine to make those minutes count.

There is something amazing about a man who takes good care of himself. He is vibrant and healthy, works out and maintains his manly figure, is careful about a healthy diet and about holding to energy and wellness.

At 22 square feet, skin is the largest organ of the body. Skin protects, fights off environmental factors, detoxes internal toxins and is the interface with the whole world, especially a man’s face. So take care of it.

Four Easy Steps to Healthy Skin

Before going to bed, and first thing in the morning, these simple steps will help anyone master a healthy skin care routine.

Step 1: Clean. Wash your face with a cleanser.

Step 2: Balance. Apply toner to balance skin’s pH.

Step 3: Nourish. Follow with a moisturizer.
Step 4: Protect. Apply a lip conditioner.

To keep skin in top shape, choose nourishing, chemical-free and preventative skin care that helps skin age gracefully. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients on the label, put it back on the shelf, buddy. If you’re ever unsure, rate your products on the Environmental Working Group’s free app Skin Deep.

Men are blessed in that they have thicker skin and show age more slowly than women. But aging is an inevitable process. Don’t rush to the finish line with a face like a roadmap!
