Think that skincare is just for the ladies? Think again. While you might be content just cleaning your face in the shower with whatever bar of soap is handy, your skin, most likely, is not. After all your skin is your largest organ—with about 19,000 skin cells per square inch—so take the time to care for it.
When you are ready for a bit of skincare pampering, check out Massage Envy’s line of Murad® Healthy Skin facials, specially formulated for Massage Envy Spa facial treatments. Looking for a simple, day-to-day routine? Here are three easy steps that any guy can do to keep skin healthy, happy and handsome.
1. Keep it Clean
More than anything else, washing your face is key. Skip the bar of soap, though, and reach for a cleanser that is tough enough to wash away oiliness, but won’t dry your skin out. Between outdoor pursuits and shaving, men’s skin takes a beating, so washing away the dirt and oil—morning and night!—is important.
2. Scrub Time
Exfoliation is not a bad word and is an important addition to any man’s skincare arsenal. Best of all, you only need to do it two or three times a week. Not only will the little granules in a scrub help slough away dirt and dead skin cells, but adding this extra exfoliating step to your routine will help uncover stubborn facial hairs and soften your beard follicles, preparing your skin for a smoother, superior shave.
3. Soften Up
Not even guys want to look older than they are and with this common skincare concern, a little thing like moisturizer can come in handy. Using a moisturizer will protect against drying and wrinkles, as well as make the shaving process easier on your skin. Take a step further in the daytime and grab a double-duty moisturizer that has SPF and provides broad spectrum protection to shield skin from sun damage.
