Want Your Man to Look his Best?
Men in their 20s and 30s tend to take great care of their bodies but their skin can be an exception. While many of you have a skin care regimen in place, it pays to cover all the bases to ensure that you’ll have young, healthy skin in the decades to come. If scrubbing your mug with bar soap in the shower is your kind of answer to skin care, here are some of the top tips for keeping the skin of the groom in shape.
Cleanse your face properly. Choose the right cleanser for your skin type — oily, dry or combination — and use it at least twice a day. Even if your skin is oily, forget about using bar soap on your face. Always use a cleanser made for the face.
See a dermatologist. Start visiting the dermatologist now for regular skin care screenings, to get advice on adult-onset acne or to manage any conditions that may be keeping you from having flawless skin.
Get plenty of sleep. You need at least eight hours of shut-eye to give your body enough time to recharge itself and repair the damage done during the day, so don’t skimp on your sleep.
Eat well. The old saying “You are what you eat couldn’t be more true — and choosing foods wisely can guarantee that your skin will stay as healthy as possible. Fill up on foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats and limit oily, fatty foods, caffeine and alcohol which can cause acne and can speed up the aging of your skin. You might also want to take a multivitamin that includes a full day’s allowance of vitamins C and E, antioxidants that can help your body fight the signs of aging. Eight glasses of water each day will keep you (and your skin) hydrated.
