Ok, guys – it’s time you stepped out of your man caves and grabbed those moisturizer bottles! No, we’re not kidding. While there is a general idea that women are the only species out there looking after themselves, truth is – men (should) do it, too – and often.
Even though male skin is biologically tighter and thicker (that’s why we’ve got no cellulite whatsoever), we still need to keep good care of our faces and skin to keep it elastic, smooth and glowing.
So, to every guy out there who is open to change, here are a few skin tips that will help you step up your skincare game and increase your chances with the ladies (or fellas)!
Don’t Be Cheap
No, expensive cosmetics isn’t girls’ business, only. Your beauty products should be of good quality, too (regular soap doesn’t cut it, sorry!), so make sure you invest a good buck into keeping yourself properly groomed.
Obviously, not all that’s expensive is good.
Mind the labels and look for natural products. For starters, if you are new to this – consult with a friend who’ll share the wisdom on practical tips and/or ask a shop assistant for help at any drugstore/cosmetic parlor.
Hey, don’t be afraid to fill up your medicine cabinet with hard-to-pronounce cleansers and creams – this is where things are only starting.
You can use a quality aloe vera gel on your face overnight, as well as other products, to make sure your skin is getting the love it deserves!
Rely On a Good Cleaner
All great skin starts with a good cleanser, so your first beauty task is to find one that suits your skin type and your morning routine.
Instead of being one of the guys who is carelessly taking super hot showers and using harsh soaps or face scrubs, be the one who is choosing a mild, gentle cleanser from Asap skin care line and washing their face with it every morning.
Your skin will go from dry and seemingly wrinkly to glowy and tight. Find a cleanser that will hydrate while it cleanses.
Cheap Razors Aren’t an Option
For some reason, men tend to believe that they’ll save up significantly if they buy a razor that’s five bucks cheaper than the next one, but “equally as good”.
News flash: no, it’s not as equally as good, and no – you won’t be able to afford a Jaguar by saving on razors.
A quality razor can be a lifetime item, so choose one that fits your skin sensitivity and beard coarseness. In the end, your face will thank you and you’ll look amazing.

Invest In a Quality Body Scrub
Women love when men smell nice. Men love when men smell nice.
We all love it when men smell nice. So, buy a bodywash that’ll make your partner weak in the knees!
A quality body scrub will not only leave you smelling amazing, but it’ll also cleanse your body of dead skin cells, improve circulation and leave the surface of your skin smooth and soft to touch.
Since you’re asking, nothing sparks up hotness like a good bodywash, so it wouldn’t be bad for you to get yourself one.

Don’t Avoid Shaving Moisturizers
Moisturizers are essential for healthy and hydrated skin, so don’t be a baby and start using them. Further, a moisturizing shaving gel will help in building a protective barrier while shaving, so slather that on.
To have a great face and an awesome beard, shave immediately after the shower or while in the shower. It’ll be easier to style as facial hairs are much softer, thanks to the warm water and steam.
Also, make sure you don’t skip the facial moisturizer. Moisturizing daily will get you kissable, soft skin and there’s nothing as sweet as that.
Make Aftershave Your New Bestfriend
Primarily, an aftershave soothes and hydrates the skin. Secondly, it cleanses the skin after a nice shave, leaving it smooth and smelling like heaven.
Opt for alcohol-free aftershaves as alcohol is known to leave skin flaky and dry – and you don’t want that.

Never Leave Home Without Applying Sunscreen
Find a moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or higher, and you’re done. If this isn’t an option, then keep a separate bottle of sunscreen handy to avoid any sunburn or skin irritation. Simple.
