Uncomplicated Skincare Regimen For Men

Skincare regimens do not have to be complicated for men. I am saying this because men look at women and complement them on their skin then turn around and ask 'how' but get overwhelmed when we list the steps. Their eyes kind of start to bulge out when they realize it consists of more than soap and water but must also include 3 more steps. For some it is 5 or 10 steps especially with the trending Korean beauty skincare routines. My steps are more like 3-4.  Now men, I want you take notes on this one. A guy friend of mine who is in sales and dressed to the 10, 5 days a week has some great tips for you that are totally uncomplicated.

Calendula is a type of rose that is naturally known to brighten and soften the skin which is what this cleanser will do. When you apply the cleanser to the face after you have splashed it with water, adding a pump of the cleanser to the palm of your hands and massaging it in circular motions onto the skin, you will feel the foam gently cleansing the skin. After you have completed washing your face and towel blotted dry with 100% cotton towel, then over time you will see the skin start to brighten and reduce the dark spots as well as feel your skin and your facial hair become softer over time.

A toner that contains no alcohol is better for the skin. Here's why. After you cleanse the face you have already cleansed the moisturizing barrier of the face that consisted of products that were previously applied followed by environmental stressors such as pollutants and bacteria in the air as well as the natural sebum that the skin produces. Therefore when you apply a toner that contains alcohol you are drying the skin out even more when you should simply be toning and tightening it with a product that will bring the skin back to it's normal phH balance. Also, alcohol can dry the skin or irritate it as well.

The older we get the more our skin starts to dry and thin out which means that we need to defend our youth thanks to Father Time and Mother Nature. As I stated, my friend, who is a successful salesman takes pride in his skincare so using this moisturizer will help to moisturize his skin due to linseed aka flaxseed oil as well as the caffeine. Caffeine as we know is an energy boaster so imagine having a product infused with that and applied as a topical treatment for the skin. Linseed aka flaxseed oil will help to fight wrinkles due to it's natural properties that plump the skin, assist in repairing the skin's cells and will improve elasticity, firm, texture and tone of the skin. Now although this product is targeted towards men, it sounds like a product that a woman would like in her skincare stash as well.

The skin repairs itself the most when you are sleeping so when you apply a nightly serum that can soak into those fine lines and dry skin while you sleep then you are helping the skin cell regeneration process. This oil contains some great ingredients such as primrose oil and squalane. The 2 combined ingredients will reduce any appearance of fine lines, awaken the skin and have your skin feeling supple and hydrated. The Daily Reviving Concentrate is a daytime serum that you can use to awaken the skin that contains antioxidants ginger root, sunflower and tamanu oil that will protect your skin from free radicals while soothing the skin (after a shave) and replenishing dehydrated skin. Use both day and night to get optimal benefits. 

The order in which these products are listed are the order that they should be used in. You always want to cleanse the skin first, followed by a toner and moisturizer. Yes, serums are optional but the older you get, the more likely you will start to include them in your regimens. There are a few other products that we can introduce you too as well but these are 4 steps into you getting on your way to an Uncomplicated Cleansing and Skincare Regimen for you men:-)
