Sun protection, cleansing and creams, taking care of your beard, hair, oral hygiene and fragrance – this is what everyone should remember. These are habits that, as the name suggests, require regularity.
It is accepted that it is mainly women who take care of their skin and complexion, use specific products or treatments. However, men should also focus on care, so that their skin will not only look better, but also significantly improve its condition. We present a list of habits that every man should implement in his life.
Sunscreen’s daily friend
Sunscreen is not a cosmetic that we use only (if at all) on vacation. It’s important to know that UV rays not only cause your skin to age, they also make it dry, dehydrated, make old wrinkles visible and new ones appear, and add to that all sorts of minor or major blemishes – not a good look by any means.
Protecting your skin daily is important no matter what time of year it is. For the face, choose a minimum of SPF 30 and preferably SPF 50. The most popular are cream filters, which are simple and quick to apply in the morning.
In the summer, when sun exposure is longer and stronger, you should repeat the application during the day. In addition, if you are on vacation, enter a swimming pool or the sea, then all the more reason to remember to reapply sunscreen to your face.
And in the evening – care!
At night, not only our body but also the skin has time to regenerate. Therefore, it is important to simply allow it to do so. How? First of all, it should be cleaned. Water with soap, although often used, can irritate the skin, causing it to dry and tighten. It is better to reach for a washing gel whose pH is appropriate.
Then apply a night cream tailored to the needs of the skin – moisturizing, nourishing or anti-wrinkle (by the way, let’s also apply it to hands, which will keep them in good condition). Well-kept skin makes us look younger and more radiant. It is also good to remember about rest and proper amount of sleep.
Beard without styling? Absolutely not!
Beards are becoming more and more popular and many men are choosing to grow them. No wonder. Not everyone has the patience or the will to shave the beard every day. Beard is a convenient solution, but you need to pay attention to style it properly. This can be done at a barber shop or on your own. Here, however, it is important to keep in mind the length of the beard. Running the trimmer all over from one side to the other on one setting is not recommended.
Trimmers come with a variety of tips that allow you to customize the beard to fit your face shape and character. Some people will look better with a mustache, others without, some with severely shortened sides, others with a goatee.
It is also a good idea to equip yourself with a beard brush and beard oil or balm. These products can be purchased at any drugstore.
Of course, you should not forget about hair and scalp care. Apart from shampoo you should also apply conditioner and if you suffer from dandruff you will need appropriate cosmetics. If you suffer from dandruff you will need suitable cosmetics.
Change your toothbrush often!
Oral hygiene is very important. Brushing thoroughly in the morning and at night (and ideally after every meal) is an absolute must. You should pay attention to the hardness of your toothbrush, which should not irritate your gums, and its frequent replacement. A toothbrush should be replaced with a new one after about three months.
You should also get used to dental floss. It helps get rid of debris from the smallest nooks and crannies of interdental spaces.
Oral hygiene is important not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for health. Gum disease can increase the risk of Alzheimer’s, esophageal cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and heart disease, and even cause erectile dysfunction.
Perfume for everyday and special occasions
Finally, there is still the smell. Every well-groomed man should remember about perfume. Properly chosen can affect the reaction of the environment and how we will be perceived. It is such an icing on the styling cake.
