Skin Fetish: 4 steps To Sexy Summer Skin For Men
1. First and foremost, WASH YOUR FACE.
Cleansing your face is skincare no brainer, but it becomes more important during the summer months as we are more active, spend more time in the sun and sweat more. Ditch the bar soap, as it can strip your natural oils and leave you feeling tight and dry, and opt for a deep-cleaning face wash that’s formulated for daily use; like Dermalogicla's Special Cleansing Gel. It's soap-free and gently removes impurities, without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance.
2. Tone & Exfoliate.
Toners and exfoliants are two of the most overlooked products in a man's skincare regimen, but they shouldn't be! Toners remove left-over dirt you missed from cleansing, restores your skins pH balance and tightens your pores. Exfoliants offer a deeper clean, refines skin texture, unclogs pores and lifts hair follicles, allowing for a closer shave. Incorporating both of these products is easy with The Ordinary's Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution. Yep! two steps in one and its under $10. You're Welcome!
Washing your face can leave your skin a little under-hydrated so a daily moisturizer is a must, even if your skin is oily. Mario Badescu's
Oil-Free Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is perfect for the summer months as it offers all of the hydration without the grease, is vegan and packed with St. Johns Wort and Green Tea. A bonus is that it comes with a built-in SPF, which means you can ditch the heavy sunscreens in the morning.
4. Netflix and Mask.
When you are home chilling in front of the computer or T.V. take the opportunity to give your skin some love and pop on a mask. A creamy anti-aging mask-like Tatcha's Violet-C Radiance Mask
is packed with Japanese beautyberry, two types of vitamin C, and AHAs from seven fruits. You can literally get smoother glowing skin in the time it takes you to binge half an episode of The Office. Relaxation and simple self-care. It's a win-win for you and your skin.
