Why men need a skincare routine

Let’s be honest, most men, probably don’t have a skincare routine. Some of us might use a moisturiser, maybe a scrub, but few of us actually have a set routine we follow daily. 

I’m here to tell you that proper skincare is crucial for a few reasons:

Our skin is our greatest barrier against infections. 

In order to keep our skin healthy and strong, we need to understand that implementing a good skincare routine is important. Not having a skincare routine or even using harsh soaps and products can cause irritated and dry skin. This can lead to cracks in the skin, leaving us more vulnerable to infections. 

Our skin is the biggest organ in our body and like any other part of the body, it requires attention and maintenance.

You wouldn't eat MacDonalds every day, would you? Maybe you would but, it’s probably not recommended if you wanted to stay healthy and maintain a banging body. Same goes for your skin if you neglect it or feed it the wrong things it won’t be healthy and strong leading to a range of issues, breakouts, acne, irritation redness, etc. It will also reduce the longevity of having healthy good looking skin, which means by the age of 40 you might end up looking like a wrinkly prune. 

When you adopt a proper skincare routine it can help prevent breakouts and make your face look sexy as f**k.

Now look we don’t want to be superficial because looking and feeling good is much more than what is on the outside but… let’s be honest the ladies love a man whos taking care of his body. In fact, the way your skin looks when you check yourself out in the mirror affects your emotional and mental wellbeing. If we feel more attractive then we also feel more confident, and confidence is key in all aspects of life. 

Prevention costs less.

Taking good care of your skin health daily will save you money in the long run. Skin problems like deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, or other skin issues can be prevented with a daily skincare routine and can prevent costly trips to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon in the future.

Okay so now we know why it’s important to have a skincare routine let’s talk through some of the fundamentals when it comes to skincare. We all have different skin types, which can sometimes make it challenging to know what skincare to use. Here is a simple assessment to get some idea of what your skin type might be:

Dry – If your face feels tight and pores aren’t noticeable to the eye.

Normal – If your skin feels smooth and pores are barely visible. It’s also is neither dry or oily.

Oily – If your face is oily all over with visible pores.

Combination – If your skin feels smooth but has oiliness in the T-zone (forehead and nose area)

Depending on your skin type certain products may be more suitable, regardless, there are 3 key steps to any guy’s skincare regime:

  • Cleanse: Wash your face
  • Exfoliate: Scrub/rub with granular substance to remove dead skin cells
  • Moisturise: hydrate your skin

Pretty simple and straight forward. If you do not take care of your skin and keep it healthy don't be surprised if you have skin problems later in life. Luckily Bearskin has created a simple, quick and easy skincare routine for men using all-natural ingredients.
