Let’s be honest: skin care is not exactly the most popular topic among most men-so there is no chance that a 10—step skin care routine with high maintenance is also possible. But just because you’re busy (or just not that interested in trying out the latest and greatest beauty trends) doesn’t mean you should give up on taking care of your skin altogether. The good news is that you don’t need a super complicated and long skincare routine to get the job done. If you prefer a lazy approach to skin care, just follow a few simple steps and use a small selection of essential skin care products, such as facial cleanser and moisturizer. Is this feasible? Below we share a simple skin care routine for men. Let’s get started!
STEP 1: START WITH A DETERGENT
Regardless of your gender or age, you want to start things off with a facial cleanser. It is always (always) a good idea to clean your skin morning and evening so that you can get rid of the dirt and excess oils that have accumulated on its surface. L’Oréal Paris Men Expert ™ ‘s Hydra Energetic Extreme Cleaner with charcoal is a great choice for self-cleaning, as the formula works like a magnet to trap and remove all kinds of dirt (such as impurities and excess sebum) and treat the usual problems caused by daily dirt in the city: dirt, oily skin, dullness, clogged pores and a sticky feeling. Gently massage the facial cleanser on your skin, focusing on your forehead, nose and chin, as these areas are more oily than the rest of your face, and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
STEP 2 : MOISTURIZE AND PROTECT
After cleansing, the next step in your skincare routine should be hydration-and if it’s in the morning, you should opt for a moisturizer formulated with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or more, which can help protect against UVA and UVB rays. And don’t even think about skipping this step! Sun protection is necessary for everyone, every day of the year. Seriously, they can burn all year round, even in cloudy weather.
To maintain moisture, apply the Vita Lift SPF 15 Moisturizer from L’Oréal Paris Men Expert ™ to damp skin after cleansing and take another moment or two to wear the product up to the neck. To preserve all the effects of the moisturizer and stay protected from the sun, you should apply 15 minutes before sun exposure. You should take other sun protection measures. These include avoiding the sun during rush hour (between 10.00 and 14.00), finding shade and covering the exposed areas with long sleeves, trousers, a wide-brimmed hat and UV goggles.
STEP 3: TAKE CARE OF YOUR EYES
Your eyes can be a dead gift that you are exhausted, which is why it might make sense to add a separate eye product to your skincare routine. In addition, we swear that you will find this step pleasant.
Instead of trying the old trick of splashing your face with cold water to wake up, use the Hydra-Energetic cold eye roller from L’Oréal Paris Men Expert ™ . The refreshing effect of the roll is perfectly invigorating for the morning, but that’s not all. The easy-to-use applicator helps to remove puffiness, to reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes. Formulated with vitamin C and caffeine, this eye serum helps action the five signs of eye fatigue: dark circles, bags under the eyes, swelling, tired appearance and roughness. Gently roll the applicator under your eye, starting from the tip of the nose and outwards to your temple to massage the entire eye area. You can use it in the morning and in the evening.
Editor’s tip: in an emergency, you can achieve a similar effect by putting your eye cream of your choice in the refrigerator overnight. Remove the eye cream after waking up and ta-da, you yourself will have a fresh treat.
STEP 4: SHOW A LITTLE LOVE ON YOUR LIPS
Think about it: dry lips are not exactly the most attractive, right? It turns out that your lips also need attention. Keep a moisturizing lip balm on hand so that you can reapply if necessary. Bonus points if it is formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen!
STEP 5: USE PRODUCTS THAT POST-SHAVE –
Is your skin irritated after shaving? If you rush without aftershave balm, you can do a serious favor to your skin. The aftershave Balm Hydra Energetic l’Oreal Paris Men Expert ™ helps to conflict the five signs of discomfort during shaving : burning, razor, tugging, irritation, redness and excessive dryness. It is formulated with vitamin E and a broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 15 and provides long-lasting moisture. When shaving is complete, apply it to the entire face and neck and you’re good to go!
