mens-skincareMany men completely forgo the notion of skin are, passing it off as unnecessary or feminine. But the skin is the first line of defense against disease and infection, and healthy skin will serve you best. Here are some skincare tips for men:

~ The face should be washed every day with a mild, natural soap, such as oatmeal or shea butter soap (it’s okay to do this in the shower).
~ Once or twice a week, wash the face with warm water and a deep cleanser to flush out the pores. Apply a moisturizing lotion or aloe afterward.
~ If you’re planning on being outside for an extended amount of time, apply sunscreen.
~ Take care when shaving; make sure the face is wet before applying shaving cream, and allow the cream a few moments to settle in. Apply after-shave cream following shaving.
~ Eat a balanced diet and stay active.
~ Drink plenty of water and limit alcohol intake.
