There is a tale, that on any given day of the week a man can be found muffling through some skincare aisle in the US, aimlessly wondering, riddled with decision fatigue, dazed and confused by all the products and details that confront him. This is not the case for every man, but it is for some, and we sympathize for these guys. In this week’s post we attempt to raise the skin care confidence of guys that haven’t a single clue on how to take care of their skin. Keep reading for ways to improve the skin and tips for shopping.
Know your Limits
First things first, look before you leap. In other words don’t start making decisions about your skin until you know your skin type and what your skin actually needs. Don’t assume you need brotox without a consultation, and you probably don’t need every gadget or gizmo that’s on the shelf either. Start with the YELLE skincare quiz to determine your skin type and get a better understanding of it. You should also consider your top concerns. After you get an understanding of your skin type you can begin to add facial services and other products to your routine.
Master the Basics
Before you start purchasing everything from jade rollers to LED light stock your shelf with the basics. Cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and eye cream are the foundation of a strong skin care routine. Start with these basics and use them on a regular basis along with SPF during the day and you will be on the way to better skin. Our YELLE targeted serums will also serve you well as your skin care habits become more routine.
Get better products
We get it, you have been washing your face with the same soap you wash your body with for years, no harm no foul. The truth is though you should not be doing that. The skin on your face and body is not the same. Every man needs a quality skincare line that is specifically formulated for the face.
Have a Solid Routine
No matter what professional services you engage in for your skin from hydrodermabrasion to chemical peels, you MUST have an at home regimen to take care of your skin the rest of the time. Professional treatments alone are not enough to preserve and protect the skin. If you want to maintain the results of your professional treatment you must have a solid home care routine. Always have a complete home care routine on hand to care for your skin after professional treatments.
