1. Wash your face with a good cleanser.
This is a no-brainer. But the reality is, either you guys are doing it all wrong or just not doing it at all. Men are often guilty of taking super hot showers and using harsh soaps or face scrubs, according to dermatologists "This makes your skin dry and when your skin is dry you appear wrinkly and much older." Not quite the look you're going for, right?
It is important to have a gentle cleanser that will cleanse the skin from the dirt and oil that can accumulate.
2. Stop buying cheap razors.
A quality razor can be a lifetime item, so choose your weapon wisely. Choose a razor that fits your skin sensitivity and beard coarseness, your face will thank you.
A moisturizing shaving gel is key to providing a barrier of protection while shaving, so slather that on. Shave in the shower or immediately afterwords, as the facial hair are much softer from the warm water and steam. Plus, it eliminates having to clean up a dirty sink when you've got company.
3. Make after-shave your new best friend.
After-shave hydrates and soothes the skin; it also seals in the skin after a nice shave. Your after-shave should be alcohol-free because alcohol dries your skin -- plain and simple.
4. Don't skip the facial moisturizer.
Facial hair can be sexy on a guy, but what really turns women on is when our faces touch and it doesn't feel like sandpaper. Moisturizing daily will get you soft, kissable skin. Fragrance-free products are easy because they have no smell and aren't considered 'girly.
Cetaphil is a good moisturizer option. And Clinique for Men is actually the same as the original Clinique products -- it's just in a grey bottle.
5. Never leave home without applying sunscreen.
If you can find a moisturizer that contains SPF of 30 or higher, then you're way ahead. But it doesn't hurt to keep a separate bottle of sunscreen handy. Plus, it lets women know that you actually care about your appearance. Bonus points!
Men who don't use sunscreen increase their risk of getting sun damage, which may result in redness, irritation, extra blood vessels and skin cancer. Stay forever young (or close to it) by applying sunscreen every single day.
