Dear Men: Here’s How to Take Care of Your Skin

Keeping your skin cool, calm, and collected is all part of the job description as a man. Forget what you heard about being careless and rugged; well-managed skin is in.

While it’s true that taking proper care of your complexion is often a lot of work, it’s doesn’t have to be. In general, tedious, drawn-out skincare routines are a result of long-term neglect. Get ahead of the game now and save yourself some time and suffering later. After all, there’s nothing manlier than a guy with a swift and knowledgeable command of his body.

When Just Rinsing in the Shower Isn’t Enough

We get it; most men don’t see the value in spending a long time fussing with toiletries to look, feel, and smell their best. Regardless, it’s unavoidable if you’re not a fan of being mistaken as a dirty hobo. Luckily, there are ways to enjoy the best of both worlds. Here are some of the simplest ways to have supple, well-manicured skin without spending hours getting it:

  1. Use Coconut Oil to Cleanse

Natural, organic coconut oil is one of the best products to use on your skin. It functions as a natural anti-bacterial and moisturizer combined, which wipes the skin clean of dirt, debris, and toxins while keeping it super soft while strengthening it against future attacks. Coconut oil works on all parts of the body too, making it an inexpensive and efficient solution to acne, dry skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and even sunburn.

  1. Use Rosehip Oil to Moisturize and Protect

They say that a rosehip a day will keep the dermatologist away. Suffer from complexion issues? There’s almost nothing that pure, cold-compressed rosehip oil can’t fix. The best part about it is that this essential oil is easy to find, very affordable for any budget, and boosts the skin almost instantly. It absorbs quickly and smells delicious too, in case you were wondering.

  1. Use an Acid-Based Cleanser to Exfoliate

Regardless of your essential oil regimen, you’ll eventually need to wash your skin with an acid-based cleanser at least once per day (ideally in the shower). From dry skin to backne, proper washing with an unscented, hypoallergenic soap that contains salicylic acid is your best chance against age, environmental, and stress-related complexion problems.

4. Get Plenty of Sleep

We realize you have a busy schedule, and like most men, you want to earn as much as you can while also looking and feeling your best. The cheapest way to do that involves getting at least 8 hours of rest per night. Shut off your phone, get blackout curtains for the windows, and invest in a white noise machine. For those times when you need to be ultra-productive, consider nootropics, but be aware that they are used by those with narcolepsy, so plan accordingly by talking with the manufacturer first about dosages for things like Modafinil.

Well, that’s it. We hope this short guide will help you improve how you look and feel. It won’t all happen in a day, but with consistent attention, you will begin to look and feel better.
