Just because it has the word ‘routine’ in it, which admittedly makes it sound quite monotonous and drab, the skincare process can get irksome for many. But a routine is just a string of steps that we follow to improve at something skincare for men is no different. Like brushing teeth, bathing, and having a hearty breakfast, a skincare routine is also fairly easy-peasy to develop and maintain.
For most men throughout history, the incentives of skincare haven’t been very significant. Nowadays, the advent of air pollution, unsafe water, and humdrum work lifestyles have driven up the demand for skincare. In fact, men ageing quicker than expected has become commonplace. The time has never been more opportune to take up skincare with aplomb and make yourself look like the life of the next party!
It’s time to first identify your skin type, just because it matters for product usage:
- Normal: Skin that’s clear, balanced, and neither too oily, nor too dry
- Dry: Rough skin with a flaky texture and may have small cracks
- Oily: Skin that produces too much sebum and makes it greasy
- Combination: Type of skin that is dry in some areas and oily in others
Sensitive: Prone to rashes, burns, acne, and redness, and may sting during product application
- Regular Face Wash
Do you still use your regular soap or body wash on your face? Well, that’s considered archaic and in many cases, bad for facial skin. Select a face wash gel that matches your skin type and use it systematically - once in the morning and once in the evening (or at night). The morning wash sweeps away any bacteria or sweat that may accumulate on your face while sleeping, while the evening wash uproots all the dirt, dust, and grime that latch onto the skin during the course of the day. Products like the Skeyndor Derma Peel Pro Resurfacing Peel Cleansing Gel 5% can really make the difference between normally washed skin and smooth, luminous skin.
- Exfoliating Fixation
Goodbye to dead skin cells! As much as exfoliation lets you have softer, smoother, and more radiant skin, it also helps to prevent breakouts and deal with acne. There are three types of exfoliation: physical, chemical, and mechanical.
The most common physical exfoliants are granular scrubs like Skeyndor MyMASK Dark Charcoal Purifying Mask that obliterate impurities and polluting agents from the pores in the skin. Chemical exfoliation deploys enzymes and acid-based blends that dissolve the protein bonds between dead skin cells and remove them. It’s particularly efficacious for battling acne. Do remember that you should frequent the exfoliation corner only twice a week, not more. Microdermabrasion and laser treatments come under mechanical exfoliation and are relatively advanced and not-so-common techniques.
- Moisturise Much?
All the ads you’ve watched on TV and YouTube are not lying - you need to moisturise your skin. Obviously, it’s essential to know your skin type before buying a product, but keep in mind - moisturisers not only keep your skin hydrated, but also preserve the skin’s natural moisture levels. Moisturisers spiked with SPF function wonderfully for men who are constantly on the move. Try applying products like Skeyndor Intensive Moisturising Emulsion as an evening moisturiser, and you’ll see rejuvenated skin and fewer fine lines.
- Advanced Touches
If you find yourself having perfected the rudimentary “Dude Skincare Routine” and want to notch things up, then serums, face masks, toners, and eye creams are the way to go. Before using any of them, you must know exactly how they’ll help your skin. Anti-ageing serums like Skeyndor Intensive Repairing Serum contain pure retinol that repairs and expunges wrinkles and dark spots. Emulsions are another fantastic product - Skeyndor Energising Emulsion’s formula is made of Vitamin C and pomegranate extract that unifies your skin tone and brightens it up.
