Men put a lot more effort into their hair than their skin. But it is more important to take care of your skin after all your skin is the largest organ of your body. Your skin depicts how healthy you are and how well you care for yourself. Whether you are a teenager or in your 30s or 40s it is crucial to have a solid skincare routine in place.

Why is it important for men to have a skincare routine?
Skincare is a necessary step in one’s grooming process and it should not be considered a luxury. Our skin faces harsh conditions like pollution, sun damage, humidity, and extreme climate conditions. So, it is crucial to take care of the largest organ of our body and provide it with the care it needs. An effective skincare routine helps to keep the skin looking healthy and protects the skin from harmful environments and increases the skin’s natural regenerative ability.

A simple skincare routine for the morning
Men’s skin tends to secrete more oil due to the presence of sebaceous glands. And oil attracts dirt and dead skin cells collect in the pores of your skin. It’s important to start your skincare with clean skin. Clean skin allows the ingredients in your products to penetrate deep inside and work their magic. Use a gentle facial cleanser to wash your face. A gentle cleanser cleanses your skin without stripping off your skin’s moisture.
The next step would be to apply a moisturizer and seal the hydration. Choose a moisturiser according to your skin type. You can also opt for moisturisers that have active ingredients in them, that way you get two benefits from one product.
The third and final step of your morning skincare routine will be sunscreen. Choose a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 50 or above with a broad spectrum coverage. Use sunscreen daily before you step out. Use sunscreen even if you are indoors. Never skip your sunscreen. You can also choose a sunscreen that’s moisturising and skip the moisturizer and directly use sunscreen after you cleanse your face. Sun damage is one of the main causes of skin ageing and other skin issues. Sunscreen helps to minimize a few years from your skin’s appearance and you will thank yourself in the future.
A simple skincare routine for the night
The first step to any skincare routine will be to wash your face. After a long day, you need to wash off the products, dirt and build-up from your skin.
Step two will be to use a night cream which is slightly thicker than your morning moisturiser. The night cream also contains active ingredients to work on your skin while you sleep.
A few extra steps to care for your skin during the weekends
You can add some additional steps to your skincare routine when you have the extra 10-15 minutes in hand. You can add these steps on the weekends or when your skin needs extra care (usually before a big day, during the change of seasons, or before or after your vacation), these steps will make a significant change in your skin’s health in the long run.
– Use a chemical exfoliator once a week
– Use a facial mask (clay, hydrating, or moisturizing)
– Use active ingredients such as niacinamide, vitamin C, or retinoids twice a week (consult your dermat before you start using any acids on your face)
Skincare routine doesn’t need to take hours to do, it only takes a few minutes of your time in the morning and at night to maintain glowing and healthy skin. A few essential steps to maintain healthy-looking skin are hydration, sleep and reducing stress from your life. If you don’t hydrate your body no matter how many products you use, your skin will look dry and flaky, drink plenty of water to achieve that hydrated look. And sleep is one of the most important factors in maintaining healthy skin, mind and body. Always catch your beauty sleep and try to minimize stress from your daily life by incorporating mindful habits in your daily habits. We hope you try out the steps to create your own simple morning and evening skincare routine.
